...PixelJunk Eden, Echochrom, The Last Guy, PixelJunk Monsters, Pain, Everyday Shooter. I mean seriously...

Second Word PLAYSTATION...
Originality, User Generated Content, Epic Storys, AAA Blockbusters, Bitesized Casual Content, Offline Multiplayer Content, Online Multiplayer content, HD Videos, Free Online, HOME.

Games are following in the Hollywood footsteps. Games (like movies) are seriously big money now, it's difficult to convince an investor to give you a lot for something that isn't guaranteed to make a profit.

Halo, MGS, COD etc etc all offer that little piece of stability that an investor can rest their hat upon.

But thankfully, they are still some development studios taking "risks".

was the best Star Wars, so no sequels don't suck, but we certainly could use more ip's. Thank you SONY uncharted, infamous, LBP etc.
and we still haven't seen one Jak and Dax game on PS3, and we still haven't seen Sly Cooper, Twisted Metal etc.
