I have to confess that I have not heard of many of the games on this list. s.t.a.l.k.e.r 2 needs to be added to it.

I'm still mourning over Theseis. Man, that game would've been SO good.

Well that list is kinda short. :confused:
But I guess not many games were canned in this generation. :p

I was really looking forward to loads of those games! I was devastated when SOE announced that The Agency was cancelled. And it looked so good. And Faith and a .45, Eight Days, PoTC: Armada of the Damned all looked like they had loads of potential.

Pity really.

None of those were cancelled. They were just not ported or localized.

What ever happened to this game? It looked sick!
I remember looking at it around 2006, and thinking to myself that the graphics were looked utterly amazing. It looks a bit dated right now, but I love the art style.

They could have mentioned TRAE...

Theseis looked proper good. =/

TRAE is a last-gen game. Also, the list is for console games only.

TRAE wasn't announced though, it was leaked, so in theory I doubt many people knew it existed other than the people on this forum.

The only two games I'm pissed off about are Six Days in Fallujah and This Is Vegas. They both looked like amazing games that could have added something to this generation of gaming.

Speaking of cancelled games, does anyone remember the name of that game, that had this cartoon trailer that took place in a hospital and had Linkin Park playing in the background? I can't for the life of me remember it. I only remember that it was canned early on.

Sounds obscure. This is a job for Legend of Lara.

It's the way it is :(

"same shhh different day" sequels are the in thing because they are a sure fire sale. You know like AJ mentioned above yearly CoD and AC sequels whored out to every format going. Meh!

Takes a brave dev & publisher to take a risk on a new IP, we have the indies i suppose that get released on PSN or XBL :(

But i don't think TR6 will ever release on the PSN. :(

Just play it on a high quality desktop pc it pushes the game to max, I don't see a point in an HD release when the PC version already offers this.

Depends, that's upto the publisher and Sony i suppose.

Personally i wouldn't and haven't bought any of Core's games off the network as i feel that given the company no longer exists it sucks they see no money nor get royalties per sale.

I wonder why those games wouldn't sell good.

Well said, I refused to buy any of the original TR games from the ps store. Was ironic that TR2 on disk worked until hey put it on the store.. >.> not buying the same game twice when the sales aren't even going to the people who originally made it. PS1 emulator for the win.

Fortunately my TR, TRIII & TR TLR still do run fine but i made them into PSP eboots as a backup.

But you pretty much nailed it with the last bit of your post. Knowing the ORIGINAL Creators get no percentage of sales bothers me.

Well, it's too late for me, since I already bought TR1, 2, 3 and Chronicles off PSN ages ago(Have TR4 on disk). But it is quite unfair that the original members of Core don't get paid, for downloadable re-releases of something that they created:(

Dancing Eyes on PSN has been cancelled. I'm sure Legend of Lara would've loved that game.

That wouldn't surprise me. What surprised me, though, is that SEGA still exists.
