Not my money, not particularly my problem other than an odd segment of E3.

Old news is old.

Also, this is common. Incredibly common.

It's refreshing to see people really did put their money down after all that talk over all these years about Shenmue. I have no interest in the game, but good on the old school SEGA fans for answering the call after all this time. Certainly a feel good story.

Sony shills out their own fans to pay for development of a game.
Fans buy it when it comes out not realizing they paid twice.

Sony have to feel invincible at this point. No one else could have pulled off a fake kickstarter/advertising campaign, and come off like the good guys.

Uhhh, Bloodstained did the exact thing a month prior.

Mighty No. 9 was "initially funded" on KS and then got publisher backing, so did Project CARS and multiple others.

Outside of most unknown indie devs? KS games from longtime developers/game designers is almost always like this.

Other people have done this, it's not a new thing.

Lol.. seriously. As they back doored in paying for PSN at their initial E3 or whatever it was show also. Everyone was cheering so loud when they back doored that in. Just like last gen man... whatever they do is cool. It's all good. Give me Spider-Man 3 instead of a game last gen.. All good bra! Blu Ray!
