SEGA need to test the waters first and release 1 & 2 on PSN and Live. If only they made Shenmue 3 instead of all those Yakuza games.

You couldn't fund a game like Shenmue with kickstarter. I know the industry has changed, but the original Shenmue cost $70 million to make. Shenmue fans would have to be pretty rich and generous to get it off the ground.

If only though. "Shenmue 3, one day it will come" was the first group I ever joined on facebook and I'm still a member 6 odd years later :D

Would love Shenmue 3 made in the mold of Sleeping Dogs or Yakuza series. Wonder if Sega are going to re-release Shenmue 1 and 2 in HD for XBL/PSN,there were rumors going around a while back of the games being completed and Sega is just waiting to release them.

I played through Shenmue 2 recently.

How about a game of Lucky Hit?

Would you like to try a game of Lucky Hit?

Must have heard it 500 times just trying to get cash.

And then spending 2 IRL hours just moving boxes into a warehouse. Started to grind, but it slowly builds.

If it's a PS4 exclusive I'll be getting the PS4. This is saying something coming from someone who only just bought their first Playstation product a month ago.

I know I'm beating a dead horse, but I still hold hope!

For March's Game Developers Conference 2014, we're announcing one of the most exciting game postmortems yet.

Yu Suzuki, the influential Japanese game designer famously known for his work at Sega, will be delivering a Classic Game Postmortem on the iconic Dreamcast game Shenmue. Mark Cerny, game designer and lead system architect for PlayStation 4 will be on-hand to translate Suzuki's presentation into English for the audience.

Suzuki, currently president of his own studio YsNet, will talk for the very first time about the creation of the console classic Shenmue. Beginning with the origin of the title as a Virtua Fighter-based RPG on the Sega Saturn, he will take the audience through the long journey of the game that led to its ultimate release in 1999 on the Sega Dreamcast.

This is an hour-long session - we'll have more scheduling details about the talk as GDC gets closer, but we figure a lot of you would like to get this on your radar! If you can't make it to GDC, be sure to watch the session livestreamed on GameSpot.

Come on Mr. Cerny bring Shenmue 3 to PS4!!

Never played the Shenmue games but my mate is in love with the series and keeps talking about a 3rd being made for ages.

Would buy where ever this game goes.

But with money being the main thing wouldn't it be best to make this game available on all platforms?
Or is there an agreement with Sony?

Talk has been up since Sega posted the below picture of the addition of Ryo to the mobile Sonic and Sega All Stars. See how the number plate says "Shen 3."

People are saying Sega are just trolling and have no intention to release the game. But for me this is the biggest indicator that it may actually be happening. It's the first real tease to come from Sega that I know of and I really don't think they'd do it just for the sake of doing it cause that's... well, just cruel. Very interesting :)

Sumo Digital have come out and said that the number plate was just a small dig at Sega for how long it has taken to make Shenmue 3.

Those vehicles are awesome though!

Maybe they could work with this guy to release it on PS3 & 360, similar to the bloke that remasters the Sonic games for IOS and Android.
