PSX on Dec 8th -- Last Hope?

Postby Telekill » Thu Nov 30, 2017 11:27 am

Last hope for what? Shenmue HD Collection.

Sega has had more than two years to get off their rear, remove the firmly placed stick and announce an HD Collection of the first two games. Remasters have been proven by numerous developers/publishers to be very successful and cost productive. Shenmue 3's success on Kickstarter proved the fan base is willing to put their money where their mouth is. Still we have seen nothing but rumors circulating and nothing directly from Sega; not at E3, not at TGS, nor the last PSX.

Thus, my hopes for an HD remaster of the first two games have significantly dwindled. I feel that this PSX is our last hope for hearing anything from Sega and/or Sony about these games being released. That means that come December 8th at Sony's PSX Keynote (starts at 8:00pm PST) is the last hope for the Shenmue HD Collection to be announced without it being some lame obscure side announcement that the masses will ignore.

Playstation blog has stated:
Though PlayStation’s biggest 2017 announcements were revealed at E3 and Paris Games Week, we’ve saved a few stocking stuffers for Friday night.


Which gives me a nugget of hope that Shenmue HD Collection is one of those stocking stuffers.

What are your thoughts on us finally seeing a Shenmue HD Collection at PSX 2017? If it happens, we're only 9 days away from excitement.

Actually, E3 2018 is our last hope. If it isn't announced there, it's never gonna happen before Shenmue III releases.

If it waits (or happens at all) until E3 next year, then it would be one of those... "and you can download now from PSN" announcements and be digital only confirmed. I would still buy it but I would be saddened to not have a physical edition to go next to my Shenmue 3 physical copy.

Do you really think we have much time left for this to happen, are you supporting Sega's bad decisions or do you simply not care?

None of the above, as anyone who knows me will attest.

The sooner remasters are confirmed, the better. An announcement at PSX would make me happier than I can tell you. But it's not the last hope. Nor was Gamescom. Nor was E3. Yet there's always been someone saying "If it doesn't happen on this exact day, it'll never happen!"

I know this could be "just a coincidence" but it's very interesting to see this been:
1- released on the 3rd day of december (same day of our monthly campaign)
2- only few days before the PSX

If the remasters don't happen, then every single one of them will claim they were right. :lol:

Yeah, I'd still buy it...even if digital releases are lame as hell.

The only viable solution i see to this problem is a battle royal style deathmatch

Guys this is just a tourist guidebook for people in the same place as Shenmue 1 it doesn't mean there is any possibility of a Shenmue remake because it's not like a game guide or anything although I would like to think this is hinting at Sega's work to make a remake. PSX timetable is already available on google so I don't know

We know Deep Silver is there and I believe Sega is also for PSX.

I don't expect anything for III, but Sony has promised a few stocking stuffers. Shenmue HD would be a very nice surprise in a conference that isn't as dominated by the big guns of E3, PGW, etc.

There's a small chance..lets see what the rumor mill churns up as the conference gets closer.
