Square Enix couldn't understand why Activision scrapped True Crime: Hong Kong

IncGamers: "...when we first saw the title we were scratching our heads trying to figure out what Activision were playing at because we thought it was in great shape," said Square's Alastair Cornish. (PC, PS3, Sleeping Dogs, True Crime: Hong Kong, Xbox 360)

Activision scraped it cause it's a game they can't milk...
... like the Guitar Hero and Call of Duty franchise.

Yi-Long said "If that is our destiny, you cannot change it. But do not go in fear, Grasshopper. Fear is eternal darkness. Go instead with inner strength. For it is like a deep river, into which all streams flow. It increases, always moving forward. And soon, there is nothing that can stand in its way"

I thought they just changed the name to sleeping dogs

Nope. It's because its a game that won't sell.
It won't sell anywhere close to Grand Theft Auto or even Saints Row.

Stay mad.

I don't understand why Square-Enix didn't scrap FF13 & FF13-2 considering how they're the worst games in existence. S-E must've picked this up cause they're used to releasing garbage now.
Baka-akaB  +   1199d ago
it's 3 months old now , get over it . And it was more than ok for quite enough people .

I even only need one title to make your trolling seems foolish : Deus ex Human revolution . You're going to claim it's garbage they picked up too ?

SE published that game, they didn't have a hand in developing it. SE, as publishers, seem to still have an eye for good projects and developers. As a development studio, they're only good at handhelds. At least for this gen.
Baka-akaB  +   1199d ago
Never said otherwise . And not the point , he explicitely state they release garbages . So i dont get the whole rescue of a troll . It's kinda the same here with sleeping dogs .

As for the rest let's just agree to disagree and have different opinions .

They are awesome so far on handhelds , and still good enough in my eyes on home consoles . At the very least they started redeeming themselves for me and some others with FFXIII-2 .

That was developed by the Eidos part of the company, the Square Enix part hasn't produced anything of any worth since FFX.
Baka-akaB  +   1199d ago
We are you repeating stuff i obviously know ? And no they produced XII wich i loved thank you . And XIII was still ok , and XIII-2 some major improvement . But stay on the bandwagon

@Baka-akaB

Its not obvious that you know it and perhaps you should calm down a bit? I mean if you make a comment expect people to respond to it.

Also FFXIII wasn't ok, it was utter dross that involved one long walk and that played itself.
Baka-akaB  +   1199d ago
Er it kinda is . The post just above yours precisely restate SE is only the publisher ... so i found it funny to have somoen coming late to re-repeat that

As for XIII i'll keep repeating i find it good and you'll keep repeating the game is crap ? Let's just agree to disagree :p

@Rolento

Why should they have scrapped FF13&13-2?those games brought in profit for the company even though gamers on forums dislike them.What world do you live in that companies scrap software/items that produce profit?

He was obviously referring to the quality of the games.

gotta admitt i was upset when activision scrapped it......
it looked great at the time, and it's looking even more promising now, hope activision doesn't pull any legal trickery and have it delayed or anything
specialguest  +   1199d ago
I just watched the video of the developer talking about the game and it's perking my interest. It sounds like they put a lot of research into making this game to try to give it an authentic experience.
iamironman  +   1199d ago
it looks interesting but i'm not convinced yet. i didn't know it wasn't originally a true crime game though which makes me more interested in it.
Awesome_Gamer  +   1199d ago
Because they are making enough money from the milked cow call of shitty
