Sigh....

Can we stop with the fanboy crap (this isn't directed at just you JetSet).

Can we just be happy System Shock is returning?
But a kickstarter should try to gather as much support as possible, isn't that the concept? :p
If they get support, they might as well aim for funding from the big boys. I wonder if these companies see crowdfunding as a marketing tool..
The original was cool yeah.

Only 300 copies offered for the Early Bird pledge and they are all immediately gone?

Get the fuck out with that stupid bullshit.

Some us have jobs and can't sit around waiting for the first 5 minutes of the Kickstarter.

Just ridiculous.

Why only 300? That is nothing.

Well in that case then your boy Yu should have put Shen Mue on Xbox also not just "Sony" as you put it so they got as much support as possible, isn't that the concept?

Yeah not going to support this if there's no version I want to play. That's a no brainer. Good luck Nightdive.
See now this makes sense and a reasonable reason not to back it. If you only have a PS4 and don't game on PC then it makes sense not to back it unless you just want to support the dev.

Hopefully they add PS4 to the list once Sony reaches out to them (which is bound to happen).

Yup. I'll just pick it up once it hits a store front.

From dev on Twitter:

I'm that case, it is short sighted by the dev not to have approached Sony to at least have initial discussions. It should be simple enough to get access to PS4 devkits, and if they're developing on PC and Xbox the cost of a PS4 version would be relatively low for relatively high return. They could gen hide the PS4 version behind a stretch goal to cover the anticipated additional costs to reduce the risk.

This is likely moot, as I expect they'll room past their target pretty damn quickly

Prob not gonna fund it cuz Im not really into KS these days, but I am really hoping this can become a great product. System Shock is an awesome IP and Nightdive seems really passionate about it, best of luck to them

From dev on Twitter:

So if this is a huge hit, Im sure Sony will approach them. And a PS4 port will sure bring more backers

Yeah, that's pretty absurd. I get that they need to get as much as they can out of the campaign, but when their goal is 900k, 300 is laughable. That's basically just there to draw your eye to $25 and then pull the rug under you with the actual $30 pledge.

Maybe they did reach out to Sony and MS and only MS approached them after?

Honestly who knows, I'm pretty sure the dev didn't sit around waiting for them to approach them without even going live, they had to inform MS of this in order for MS to know it was happening to provide said dev kits.

Wouldn't you want to check about that dev kit before launching a kickstarter? This statement just seems odd to me.

If you don't back this, you may never see PS4 edition. They said they're open for other platforms once this meet the goal. Don't be salty just because there's no PS4. Shenmue 3 isn't coming to XB1 (my preference system) but I still backed it. Do it for everyone, not just you. :p
With the track record of kickstarter, especially video games, this is just bad advice. There's plenty you can do to increase awareness of a kickstarter and help something get funded even if you don't want put your own money in. This is one step above the old "if you don't buy game X we won't know how much demand there would be for game X2" that companies like to dangle in front of us.

Capcom gave us a finger in RE7 Demo, Nightdive gave us an entire, useless body. Someone should open a thread asking "What's the body for?".

I hope it's not dumbed down for consoles too much :/
Nah, I don't think so. The major problem I see at the moment is the game being focused on pixel hunt, and with a pad that can be a problem.
