Honestly, China is not a good market at all for console gaming right now. Most in Shenmue have basically never heard of Shenmue. Their gaming culture is all revolved around PC gaming.

You know, guys, I wouldnt give up on those features even if the KS only manages to make 4 or 5 millions. Remember, shenmue 3 wont be out for another 2 years at least. Surely, more funds will be coming in as time goes by. It's not only coming from the kickstarter. I'm sure that no matter what, we won't get a sub-par S3.
Mr.Burns: "Smithers, I think I'll donate a million dollars to the Shenmue 3 kickstarter!..."
Smithers: *stares at Mr.Burns incredulously*
Mr.Burns:...when pigs fly!!!
*they both burst into laughter*
*pig flies past the window*
Smithers: ...will you... be donating a million dollars now, sir?
Mr.Burns;...No, I'd still prefer not to.

Sightly confused by this as shouldnt the $5m stretch been updated with this new feature based on update #13?

Also I feel they need to announce new rewards to accompany these new stretch goals- lay all the cards on the table :)


EDIT* was going to say maybe 6m is the new 5m (like 11m seems to be the new 10m) but still doesn't seem to fit. :-/

Now I wonder if the guy has a limit at all to what he could do if he was given another blank check. :shock:

Gaming in China is very different than here. Console gaming is basically non-existent. Almost all of China's gaming is composed of MMO's and online games. The type where people play at internet cafes. Its extremely rare for people in China to play a single player console game.

All the big AAA franchises that we all know and love, China probably never heard of. I'm not saying it wouldn't be great for gamers in China to experience Shenmue, rather it would be likely that there wouldn't be much interest.

We should get on China nationalist side.

Shenmue could be a national treasure of chinese culture, not kidding.

Not just to give the view of "open market" but actually how much did they impacted on global culture.

I know this is just rambling, but for fucks sake, it actually is.

I hate to say this but the KS is not keeping momentum. 30k a day sounds good but Bloodstained was averaging 60k a day and in fact I believe 40k or so was the worst day it had. The other thing to remember is that Shenmue had the E3 conference as the reveal. it's very hard to top that level of coverage. Another major issue is that the KS is not making much effort drawing in people who are not fans. It's not too late however to fix that.

Yeah, that's just it, all well n good for us lot, but not for the success of the Kickstarter on a larger scale. That said, you're right that it ain't too late to fix it. A little late to hit the higher stretch goals, but Twitch seems to have become a popular platform and may lead to some great exposure to "other gamers". Let's just hope it doesn't clash with timeslots for any popular channels.

On a side note, Suzuki isn't much of a gamer and seems to have a wide range of interests/hobbies. Wouldn't be a bad idea if he was to poke his nose around KS, make a few pledges, and suggest some cross-promotional work. Could lead to some pledges from non-gamers.
