It seems that SEGA has barely enough faith in their failed Shenmue series to make a third installment – as long as one of the big hardware developers, Sony, Nintendo or Microsoft, front the cash for the endeavor in exchange for platform exclusivity. Shenmue was amazing when it came out – only hardly anybody got to play it, especially the second one, and it was quickly surpassed in everything it offered in a matter of years. I don’t think SEGA could possibly blow enough smoke to interest someone to fund this project. Shenmue was a good idea… once. It was just a victim of the times and is probably best left in its shallow, waterlogged grave.
