10 PS3/Xbox 360 Game Cancellations You Probably Weren't Aware Of

"It would be an understatement to describe making games as a high stakes business. Even at the lower levels of game development, the process takes a lot of time and a lot of capital to reach fruition and, on account of the sheer amount of investment required, plenty of development projects encounter problems at some point down the line. The most well known of these catastrophes is the phenomenon of vapourware, whereby an immensely hyped game receives continued delays until it is eventually cancelled." (PS3, Xbox 360)

Dont bother ... they make you click too many times just to see the whole list... I hate when websites do this.

Freakin gamingbolt. They always pull that crap and they're a worthless site that does nothing but lists.
loulou  +   633d ago
lol bubs + for truth! the problem is, that lists, top 5s and 10s, make up about 85% of n4g..

it doesn't say much for n4g either does it!

Batman by Gaslight looked pretty good or should I say it sounds like a neat idea which could be good

Imagine a series based on Batman where each game is set in different time periods....Assassins Creed Batman

It's worth it to thumb through and view the videos..Id rather click than scroll through a huge list honestly

Someone should have told the Gotham By Gaslight devs that Batman can't jump 40ft into the air.

Wow, I loved what I saw of "Gotham By Gaslight", great cape physics as well.
Obviously, it was in it's prototype phase, but man does that game show promise.

11. Indiana Jones: Staff of Kings

I'm still bitter about this cancellation. A very watered down version of this game was released for the Wii, PS2, PSP, and DS, but it was a shadow of what was promised for the 360/PS3.

Indeed. Would like to add the pirates of the Caribbean rpg to the list too.
clevernickname  +   633d ago
Yes, the Pirates RPG cancellation is another gaming tragedy.

really?
Gears of war exile? I'm guessing they would have been telling the story of the stranded. I wonder why they abandoned this?
tehpees3  +   633d ago
I think Gears of War Exile was that rumored on rails Kinect Gears so it would be understandable why they cancelled it.

Vote this site down, it's terrible.
r21  +   633d ago
Done, been going it ever since that kept making those damn lists! Its now 1.5 stars before being banned :D
TVippy  +   628d ago
Seems like it's never going down. It's been hanging on 1.5 stars for many-many months now. :'(

Does anyone remember War Devil? That looked awesome but probably (if not officially) cancelled.
e-p-ayeaH  +   633d ago
pretty obscure games such a shame.
BlackIceJoe  +   633d ago
Alienguard sounds like it could have been interesting. I liked the idea of it be set during World War 1. Gotham by Gaslight could have been really interesting. I idea alone would have been great.
