The next gen leap: eight franchises that may not survive

OXM UK: "You don't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs, and you don't switch hardware cycles without throwing cash around like it's going out of fashion. The arrival of next generation consoles will be a time of hope and promise, a time of bold concepts and massive initial sales spikes. It'll also be a time of massive commercial trauma, as business paradigms shift under the strain of new technologies and fluctuating audience tastes."

The story is too old to be commented.

We should expect many franchises that don't have mainstream success to released digital

Half life 3 will be on source engine 2.. I cannot see Valve releasing it now or next gen without source 2.

I want next gen's survival horror franchises to be survival horror. That's the only way they will survive.

SOCOM is one of them for sure.

I was expecting obvious trollish answers but this was a thought out list.

A lot of the games listed were one-off games or should have remained as such.

Ninja Gaiden and Silent Hill? Unfortunately their best days are behind them. Shenmue? After how much Sega blew on the first two Shenmue games? Forget about it. And neither of them made any of that money back.
