    Come on, there was a "Buffy" game announced for the X-Box. There was no dilemma. [​IMG]
    Of course, I suppose you might have just bought the game so that you could own a copy of everything saying "based on characters created by Joss Whedon" even if you didn't actually play it.

    Any idea when? I was going to buy Shenmue 2 for my DC, but may just wait and spend the money on Xbox titles for now. For me, it doesn't make sense to buy it twice (not really into that whole scene - I like to buy the game once, personally..)

    DC version of Shenmue 2 go bye-bye. Only the XBox version will be released in America. Microsoft exclusive. Yes, a real exclusive, they do still exist.

    Well life could be worse. At least it is coming to North America.
    Either that, or I could use this as a good excuse to brunch up on my Japanese...

    I just heard the cancellation of Shenmue 2 to the dreamcast and it has really really dissapointed me that Sega has left their dreamcast owners hanging there...
    I mean, they already have a japanese version of it! The least they could do was to finish off the last 10% of the game for the north american market then continue producing it for the Xbox!
    I stuck with Sega all the way defedning it from fanboys from other systems... this is the last straw and i have lost all faith in Sega... Thanks alot... Thanks for screwing over your dreamcast customers with blind faith and false hope...

    They have been screwing over the American PSO players on a pretty consistent basis(large numbers can't even get online), so it's no real surprise. :/

    The DC was a total failure in Japan more than America, so why do they consistently screw us over?
    I'm no DC fanboy, but I am upset that Shenmue 2 is coming out for XB and not DC at all or ever. Considering that they had already advertised it, its somewhat like what MS did with the prog. scan thing. Pisses me off.
    PSO is still coming to GCN, right?

    Exactly...while I'm getting the XBOX so I really don't care that it's not coming for the DC, I am a bit surprised they would screw N. American DC owners like this.
    They are releasing it on DC in both Japan and Europe...both of which were smaller markets for the DC than N. America. Kind of odd.
    Oh well, I haven't played my DC in many months (except for some NES games) and am very excited about the XBOX....so I'm set!

    Perhaps Microsoft is paying Sega more money for the Shenmue II exclusive then Sega thought they could make releasing it on the DC?
