Shenmmue III getting Collector’s Edition from Limited Run Games

First with the news that the PC version is going exclusive to Epic Game Store, now we have another collectors edition announced, which was part of early Kickstarter pledges. But now we have another, actually very cool looking Collector’s Edition being done by Limited Run games that comes with:

  • The Game (pictured above is PC)
  • Phoenix/Dragon Mirror
  • Five clothing Patches from within the game
  • Sickers from art from the game
  • Light box style lamp

The game will only get 4,000 units on PlayStation 4 and 1,000 units made for PC! Deep Silver has confirmed that all physical copies will have Epic Game Store codes. The Collector’s Edition is also only being sold within North America. AYou can ‘unravel the mystery this November’. What are your thoughts? Are you mad that you backed the game early considering it seems a lot of things are changing?

Microsoft and 2K Sports to launch ‘Joe Montana NFL Football 16’ on Xbox One and Windows 10

JoeMontana16
According to the website Free on Smash, an ‘anonymous poster’ at Operation Sports confirmed that Microsoft would be working with 2K Sports to launch Joe Montana Football 16 this summer exclusively on Windows platforms and Xbox One. It seems that EA’s new license update with the NFL allowed for first party NFL games (Similar deal to how Sony has exclusive MLB games for first party and 2K can make their own MLB games on multiple consoles).

The rumor for the new NFL game started back in October of 2014 when Joe Montana tweeted a short video of him motion capturing a video game and said the following:

” So many things happening! Here is a teaser of what is coming. Stay tuned for more.

If you guys didn’t already know, Joe Montana Football debuted back in 1990 exclusively on the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive and NFL 2K franchise was created as a exclusive franchise for the SEGA Dreamcast back in 1999. Seems like someone over at Microsoft is a big fan of SEGA Sports back in the day. To read the message posted over at Operation Sports (with all the nice tidbits of information), hit the jump.
