Guardian - SimCity Preview

Guardian - When do publishers decide that sequels can no longer support suffixes? Is there a formula somewhere that can identify when a number is too high to whack on the end of a title, where it suggests doddering venerability rather than cutting-edge innovation? Does it decide when to scrape all the numbers and subheads off the end of an IP and start over with the original name? Does it have a flowchart section that works out when profit from nostalgia will overcome numerical confusion, and ends in a big red box with "REBOOT" written in the middle? (PC, SimCity)
