IF ONLY: Shenmue 3 and Kinect

I know a lot of you are doing the cool "Kinect is a paperweight" thing, and to be fair if you've never grown accustomed to it (most especially the vocal commands) it might certainly appear that way. Of course Microsoft don't help themselves by trying to integrate it into more traditional, non "leap about like a lemur in a microwave" games and then instead shooting themselves in the foot by only really selling the idea you can play Just Dance on it, but if you've played certain games with a Kinect (I'm looking at you, Mass Effect 3) you'll know how truly impressive the functionality is.

Now, imagine Shenmue's exciting third episode (and Ryo gets out of that bloody cave with Shenhua totally stinking and starving, probably) with the ability to literally screech "HOI YOU!! PLAY PACHINKO! C'MERE!" at passers-by . That alone would sell it for me. But then imagine this - in Shenmue, one of the most engaging features is the ability to pick up and examine seemingly banal items. Your kinect sees how you're manipulating the controller in your hand, and Ryo engages with the picked-up item accordingly. Also, kitten-petting. You've got to have kitten-petting.

So, "HOW ABOUT A GAME OF LUCKY HIT? NAW? WELL, SCREW YOU, ELDERLY WOMAN!"

There was no doubt in my mind that you were going to mention Lucky Hit. I am not disappointed.

Shenmue 3, should it happen, will never, ever, ever be an X1 exclusive. I am 99% sure if that game is ever made it will be ps4 exclusive. Not because I'm a fanboy or any other ridiculous reason, but because the majority of the Shenmue fanbase live in Japan, MS would be wasting their money. I'd love it to be multiplatform, but the way the rights are owned would mean one company paying for it, that company would be Sony.

"I'm looking for some sailors."

Suddenly, Kinect picks this up and Bing searches for some maritime porn.

Makes sense. Doesn't explain why Shenmue 2 was on Xbox though.

Shenmue 2 was only on xbox wasn't it(unless you got the eu disc on the dreamcast)? So it could be a possibility. That being said I doubt this game will ever be made... :(
