On this site, look at the web adress it links to; http://goneisgone.blogspot....

Check out 'Virus' underneath 'leaked concept art'. Look at description of 'Virus'.

Hasn't 'Project V' been said to be an retro looking arcade game for PSN? Doesn't Virus look like a 'arcade game for PSN?' with a 'V' in the name? Don't projects get outsourced?

i think project v is by a dev called 'Just Add Water' though. It's a new europe based dev, though, so perhaps some factor 5 guys brought it there?

Bingo. JAW maybe got the project passed on from F5 by Sony. Much like the whole Star Wars Battlefront 3 situation.

factor 5's games were always conceptually great, and visually awesome. it's just, some of them got stuck up in the actual gameplay(not just singling out lair, either).

I have a feeling you have never played Lair while the game wasn't perfect as no game is , the gameplay was not broken contrary to what reviewers stated , sometimes people just dont like to try new things and thats what happened with Lair and it's Motion controls , had Sony given Factor 5 6 more months to polish up Lair the game would have been great not good.

kinda sad that this got canceled, but then i remember lair and...

Danja3517d ago (Edited 3517d ago )

you think to yourself why didn't you play this cool game made by awesome devs... hmmm :)

and I dont know why people think that Lair was the reason for Factor 5 Downfall .. Sony funded development for the game ....

is actually pretty top notch in the gaming world he's the president of some game developer organization. Its kind of sad seeing his company go to the crap hole. I think Sony should take the opportunity and buy them out and reorganize the team. Eventhough Lair flopped; its concept was still pretty good. It's got some potentials.
