I heard about this rumor that said it was coming out for the GameCube, too. is there any truth behind that? I've played the first game, and personally i loved it, so I wanted to get the 2nd one. but then I heard it was only for the xbox and I was like "nooooo!" lol
Sega only released Shenmue 2 to Xbox and Dreamcast. Remember that Microsoft financed its conversion to X and also its marketing campaign, Sega is not on the mood (read: doesn't have funds) to convert it to the other platforms.
i adore shenmue 1 and 2!! i havent got an x-box though but i might get one just for shenmue 3. i wanna play jet set radio future aswell which is also x-box only. ive just started playin shenmue 2 all over again for the fourth time. its addictive! i love the darts mini-game
ha ha, joy certainly is fine, as far as computer game characters go!
as far as making money -
a guareneteed $60 everytime you do some work at the dock carrying crates
the Lucky Hit stands - ask the people at the stands about part time work and some of them ask if you want to look after the stand. then you play locals at the game and if you win money you get what you earn - not very reliable, half the time you dont win anythin, but its a fun game!
the collection thing is just the toys that you have won or bought. you can sell these at the pawn shops.
off the top of my head thats all the ways you can get money.
oh yeah! gambling. (dont do it kids!) unreliable (duh!) and you'll probably lose money, but if you win you can win big
I love this game soo much. But I'm mad they might not finish the series. It's a great game how it's sort of like a real life living it day by day. But I hate xbox since it wants to make games xclusive. Shenmue was supposed to come out on PS2. I hope they finish the series but on the playstation its such a great game they just cant leave us hanging.
If you want to play Shenmue 2 on DC, get the EUROPEAN version, it has English subtitles!
Of course, your DC will need a mod chip to be able to play it, but if you have a good import game shop near your house, you should be able to pick up a used modded DC and used copy of Shenmue 2 for cheap.
