Just got caught up... shenmue is one of my favorite series of all time. The original game ... easily one of my favorite games and often I would say it is my favorite game. But... $150 for that complete version of shenmue 3? Hell no. I hope the real reason they aren't doing a standard version is because someone else is doing it and bringing it to retail.
They are claiming there will be no retail version and that this was the only way Deep Silver would let them release the patched/DLC complete version at all.
