Nice list, however, I wouldn't call the Nintendo Wii Vitality Sensor a rumour as it was announced and unveiled but it just never materialised into a retail product

He already said that in his article. In fact, it was in the first sentence -_-

"EA Buys Ubisoft"

Thank god that didnt happen!

Metal Gear 4 on the 360 should really be on the list.

Agent and Final Fantasy 13 Versus are two big disappointments that come to mind. What happened to those?

Capt-FuzzyPants2052d ago

Are those even relevant at all to the article?

I guess people don't even read the titles anymore.

well, there has been tons of rumors about their release dates, cancellations, going multiplat and so on....

The vitality sensor would have been useful if Nintendo ever decided to make an Eternal Darkness sequel, it would measure your heart rate to dictate if you needed a scare or not and adapt the game accordingly. Sadly, it's application for games is limited.

Square Enix might as well announce a FFVII remake, since they don't finish projects people care about anymore anyway.

That last part made me laugh. It's true though, it's like they're trying to do whatever they can to alienate fans of the series.

The Xbox 360 Blu Ray rumor would have never worked. They would have had to put out two separate games, one on DVD and one on Blu Ray. That would have been a confusing mess, also when you consider that less than 20 games in the whole Xbox 360 library require more than a single disk, its not something needed this gen.

Shenmue 3 was never more than a rumor.

Sega CD style add on with its own games?

It wouldn't have been for games had it come out anyway, I think platform holders are a bit more sensible than Sega.

doogiebear2052d ago (Edited 2052d ago )

No its not that most games didnt need more than one disc, its just that companies dumbed down their games for dvd. Thats why we get games with 4 hour campaigns this gen. Then they port that trash to ps3. Pretty lame.

ChunkyLover532052d ago

That is the biggest load of crap I've ever heard. I put 120+ hours into Skyrim and that game was less than 5 gigs.

Gears Of War 3 was around a 13 hour campaign alone. Your buying into the whole Sony fanboy reasoning.

Nobody gimped anything, if something was too big, they would just split it up into more disks.

Aw, Shenmue III. *sniff*

Looking on how successful the Yakuza series is doing, Sega might see Shenmue as a step backwards or not appealing to today's audiences. I do know that at least twice, developers and the creator himself said they wanted to do it. There was also supposed to be Shenmue online.

To be able to play as Ryu again and walk down the streets of Japan. Ah, memories.
