Are you going to buy Shenmue III when it comes out even if..

Postby Kiske » Fri Aug 14, 2015 9:40 am

...you've backed the game and will get a digital/physical copy as reward?

As for me, I'm definitely going to buy the digital version day one.

Mainly for two reasons beeing:
1. The sales number of Shenmue III will be crucial in order to ensure support from a Publisher for SIV (if the story doesn't come to an end in Shenmue III) and I want to give my little contribution to reach this goal.
Get ready to spread #SaveShenmue4 already :mrgreen:

2. I highly doubt the backers will receive their rewards before or even on day one.
Those, who follow the path of a warrior, must be ready to die, in order to stand for one's convictions, live for one's convictions, die for one's convictions. That is how I lived my life.

I recently got a dream involving the release of Shenmue 3 with a huge queue in a game store and adults screming their heads off on the way home with the game in their hands.

^^ good question. 8)
i don't have a ps4 (yet) so until i get one, will be watching space.
definitely get a physical copy at the first opportunity if possible, bank it for the ps4.
a dlc/archive will suffice i suppose.
friend got ps4, and he's banging in for s3. (bastard! he'll be way into that part of the story before i get a shot. kudos to him for having the $$$ to back it.) :mrgreen:
one warning was absolutely fair, was over zealous on conviction on a response to a subject.
the other one for 'spam' (aka: it was me posting that qualified) which is bogus due to personality clash. why don't who this concerns pull the other guy for destroying my subject, accusing it of SPAM?
oh, i get it now, not one of your cliques, and i watched you stand by and and let him trash it, and you did NOTHING but was complicit in your silence, and totally one sided and agree with it by inactions. (you have the temerity to pull me for spam, and yet, you let your lackey cliquey friends shit on my subjects? double-standards, real fuckin professional dude.)
at least the other staffer explained where i was wrong, and backed it up clearly in writ. :roll:

I'm getting the physical PS4 version as my backer reward so if there is ever a retail version sold in stores and if it differs from the backer reward in some way, I will probably buy it again. If there is a special retail collector's edition, I will certainly buy that. I won't buy a digital copy of the game.

It won't, Suzuki confirmed that. They'll at least need a Shenmue IV to conclude the story, might even have to make (or want to stretch it to) a fifth one.

Yeah, I'll be getting the digital version day one. I'm only buying physical versions when there's no other option (Sleeping Dogs is not available overhere for example and I can't be arsed to create a fake PSN UK account or something like that, so I ordered the UK physical). Shenmue is an exception though, so I'll buy the physical on day one as well, if there's ever going to be one. Both in addition to my physical backer edition, all on PS4. I'll do this to support the game and help its sales.

I won't. Already waited 14 years, more 2 years and some months will not be a big deal. Also, I will probably need to do some saving for S4 and a decent gpu, since I will play it on pc.

I never buy digital, EVER, but this time, I will.
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.

I might.

I have both PC and PS4 physicals coming, but I might go ahead and do the digital as well just to support it. If the backer exclusive codes and in-game goodies can be access without opening the physical version at all, I'll just hold on to those and go pure digital, for my own benefit and to throw some sales numbers their way.

I will buy another digital and physical versions even though i already have both from the Kickstarter. I plan to give one digital code to a friend who has no intention of buying shenmue, maybe i can turn him into a fan.

Also i bet the physical versions wont arrive until after the game is launched (given AJ track record), so i bet a lot of you guys will be getting another physical copy as well.
