Fingers crossed for Amazon price match and then £2 prime preorder discount.
Am I right in saying that this is only really going to appeal to people who played it back in the day? These games aren't really going to stand up to the test of time for people playing them for the first time, are they?
This will be very popular. Great price as well. Heat added my good friend
cant remember with simply games, money on dispatch or straight away?
A bit much for a game of Lucky Hit?

No mate, the new generation cannot abide anything that is more than 5 minutes old... these are old and past it...

People complain that EA vault only has "Old games" in it... games released in the last 12 months... "old".... this collection has no chance!
So many games coming out this September.

These are the same people who have been playing the same Call of Duty, Need for Speed and Fifa games for over a decade.

I'm not sure how anyone can complain about EA Access. Best value for gaming across any platform. Better than GWG in my opinion.

This rpg stands up to day if you like to play a game for its story.
I think Xbox One X Enhancement on OG Xbox games looks better than this crappy remaster.
Still play these on my DC with VGA... well worth a look if you've never had the chance to play before.
Waiting for the site competitors but damn this is a triumph! It's so good to see is game finally reach modern consoles. I'm hoping this creates more interest and boosts the Kickstarter again. If you enjoy good story, immersive worlds and great action Shenmue as it all and I implore you experience this and Join us to the oncoming Third Shenmue game - YES!!!
September going be expensive month
Same price at shopto

Thats just using footage from the Dreamcast VGA box.

Probabaly wont look much better. I reckon Shenmue & Shenmue II will just be running on a specialised Dreamcast Emulator with a few tweaks here and there. Which is a shame because Im pretty sure they would have kept all the original high resolution textures they used during development.

Tbh I loved these on the dreamcast. When they first hit there was nothing like it...it pretty much kick started the while cinematic qte craze that followed. And the combat felt tight...up there with the likes of virtua fighter. And it was voice acted - wow such production values! Have to do a job? Wow I've never had a job, this games so life like! Oh and there's games within a game in this? This is crazy!!!

Do I want to play them again? Absolutely not. I try them from time to time when ever I'm on a nostalgia trip and hooking up old consoles. They can pretty up the visuals of these for sure, but it's the gameplay that's dated the most. 3d games have far surpassed shenmues clunky controls and camera. Games in general have far surpassed shenmues awkward voice acting (two was in Japanese but the delivery is still very much stilted by today's standards). QTE's have been fully played out, removed from their freshness. And combat is too stiff and limited by today's standards. And the obvious filler is obvious...a job? Seriously tedious. Games with in a game are still cool though.

These games, like most 3d games, are a case of you really needed to be there during a pocket of time they released to really appreciate them. They basically evolved into Yakuza in the end. So, unless you're super curious having never played them, I'd pick up the new Yakuza instead. I really don't think the refresh is going to be all that needed for 3.

I don't think they'll price match Simply, but they do price match Shopto. It's not always the case on pre-orders, but if they do you should see a nice £24.86 Prime price

and with any luck base being base they will undercut that and we could see £23.86

You never know, Coolshop may go crazy like they did with Rogue on pre-release and pop it up for £19.95. It's all just so exciting
18 years and the cant even give us a proper remaster of these! Just some half arsed tart up.

As someone who backed Shenmue 3 these should of been free to all backers if this is the best they could do to the masterpieces in regards to graphics.
