E3 2015: Shenmue III Crashes Kickstarter

Once word of Shenmue III hitting Kickstarter at E3 spread, thanks to a countdown during Sony’s E3 Press Conference, the popular crowdfunding site crashed.

Within seconds of the announcement, the site was down, and within minutes, it was barely functional. Ten minutes after launch, the world’s most popular crowdfunding site is still out of commission. It seems fairly safe to assume that Shenmue III will be funded with such a massive flood of traffic to Kickstarter, and its $2 million goal seems to not be extremely lofty for what it is.
