That's from a later event, which I still need to look up. They were promoting this thing for a full year, and half of the time it's the same story: "Shenmue is delayed, but here's a demo" I think that happened two or three times. It was March/April 1999, then August 1999, then December 1999, then... surprise! earlier in December 1999. That last one upped Sega's share price by 5% apparently.
