The lights are on

Dead or Alive: Code Chronos (Xbox 360) – Chronos was not going to be a fighting game, according to former series director Tomonobu Itagaki. It was meant to be a story-focused game that would serve as prequel to the rest of the Dead or Alive games. Because if there is one thing that Dead or Alive needed more of, it was storyline clarity. Also, when fighting games decide to use its characters in non-fighting games, it always ends well.
Dirty Harry (PS3, Xbox 360) – Dirty Harry was in development by The Collective, Inc. The developer mostly specialized in licensed games like Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and The Da Vinvi Code. The company has since merged with Shiny Entertainment to form Double Helix Games. Before that merger, it was working on Dirty Harry. Clint Eastwood was on board the project offering his likeness, his voice, and creative input. After The Collective’s assorted mergers, however, the project was canceled. The Collective, Inc. made it as far as a trailer to accompany the announcement of the game.
Duke Nukem Forever (PS3, Xbox 360) – I’m being told that Duke Nukem Forever did in fact release, but that can’t be right. It’s the running joke of the industry. That game is never coming out.

There's a couple I have seen that aren't here. Hero and Gorrilla Nation to name a couple. Hero in particular looked really interesting.
well some of these did deserve death but it's still sad to see so many games getting canceled that could have been awesome.
Awwww, not Bonk! XD
you guys should add Demonic to that list because that was supposed to be released very early in this generation's cycle and was canceled abruptly and the remnants of the video game were used in grandma's boy.
It's too bad about the Gaslight Batman game and the Pirates game - especially when Disney went and released a crappy Tron game. Sometimes they just don't get it.
Whats up with all the using the wrong spelling of words?
Aw... Ender's Game by a good Developer would have been cool.
Aww you guys forget Frame City Killer. I remember reserving that lol.
This is to bad, Gotham by gaslight and the Pirates Armada game looked promising,oh well now we'll never know.
Really disappointed about Faith and a .45. Love those noir style games, and probably the best named game in quite a while.
i love how they put duke nukem forever on this
Why Tiberium Why? I don't CARE how bad you might have been I still would have played you!
man i would have loved a dirty harry game :(
I thought This is Vegas and Armada of the Damned looked pretty interesting. And I don't know why the Wii was excluded from this list, but I'll add The Grinder, which look like a first person version of HVS' Hunter series. That game had my attention, but it looks like its dead. There was also Project Hammer, from the early Wii sizzle reels.
And what about that game from the original PS3 footage, it was called Eight Days. I thought that one looked cool, though Uncharted eventually became what it looked like Eight Days was going to do
