Let's take it a step further and say specifically exclusive to the Xbox Series X. Would this be a deal breaker for you? I'm aware of the irony of this scenario with them passing on funding S3 fwiw.
If it also didn't come to PC, then yes it would be a dealbreaker. As much as I love shenmue, I usually buy video game consoles 4+ years after they just release. I just got a ps4 but played Shenmue 3 on my PC since it is more capable. I wouldn't buy a console just for 1 game no matter how much I love the series. I could use that money to travel to Dobuita insteadLet's take it a step further and say specifically exclusive to the Xbox Series X. Would this be a deal breaker for you?

Yeah I agree. Even if Microsoft said it's exclusive to Series X, we all know it'd come to PC a year or 3 down the line anyways. This is just a hypothetical.I think Xbox exclusives are coming to PC gamer pass anyway so unless it was solely on Xbox I wouldn't need to. If I had to I would!
Pretty much this. I bought a PS4 just for Shenmue 3, but I'm now enjoying everything it has to offer.I couldn't care less, tbh. I'll buy any system it's exclusive to. My days of console fan-boying are behind me. I do think Sony has a better line-up of exclusives, but these days every system pretty much offers the same games.
I was thinking about that. Although most people might classify Shenmue 3 as "essentially an indie game", when the name Shenmue is brought up it is brought up as a big title, despite it's sales. This is probably due to it's legacy, but the fact is Shenmue is still a name which can be brought up among the media and still garner lots of press.I’d been wondering this myself. Although not a game that’s going to sell millions of units, one thing that Shenmue does have going for it is it’s die-hard fan base and it’s still a recognizable name in the industry.
Wouldn't it be worth just keeping the console? Why pay every time you want to replay a game? Say you sell it then two days later you wanted to play a said game again...in the unlikely event shenmue 4 only came to the xbox series x, i would be willing to buy that console secondhand just to play s4 and then sell the lot on at a slight loss (i'll need to re-buy a xbox to play halo6 lol).. its sounds like a lot of hassle but over the years ive done it several times before with other consoles just to play games series i follow.
nah, i rarely replay games.. if i do its normally several years down the line.Wouldn't it be worth just keeping the console? Why pay every time you want to replay a game? Say you sell it then two days later you wanted to play a said game again...
