Shenmue Fans Get Forbes Article Bashing 'Shenmue 3' Kickstarter Removed

Shenmue fans get Forbes article removed

Popular website of the American business magazine, Forbes, had a recent article by 'Dave Their'.

The article apparently told everyone to stop donations to the ground-breaking Shenmue 3 Kickstarter, that broke Kickstarter records by reaching 2 million dollars faster than any other project, in less than 12 hours, and is now on 3 million and counting.

The reason he stated for stopping the donations is apparently that the Kickstarter of Shenmue 3 is a scam as it is being supported by Sony, so it's unfairly generating money from fans when someone like Sony is helping it, as well as mentioning the fact that it was the most expensive game of it's time and now they are ready to make it in just '2 million' dollars, even though tools do not cost as much anymore for creating a decent video game.

Shenmue fans were enraged and once again proved that they are not a fan base to joke around. They got the article taken down in a remarkably short time, which is now just a 404 page:

Shenmue 3 kickstarter reaches 3 million

Shenmue fans have commented that David Thier is 'jealous' and is a 'false' journalist trying to get attention.


Thanks to Jordan Craw, we now have an archived version of the article that was taken down. You can check the article's text out by clicking 'here'.


David Their has reposted the article, but with several changes and a new title(although the link still stays the same). You can read the article changed article 'here'.
