    During the last week THQ announced a few titles it plans to release this or next year: Stuntman: Ignition which will be ported to the PS2, PS3 and Xbox 360 only. The player will jump into the role of a Hollywood stuntman driver which is encouraged to create breath-taking jump-rides. Besides the singleplayer career it will come with an online multiplayer mode all together this summer.
    The next one in the list is MotoGP '07 which will be based on the original MotoGP motorcycle season 2007. That includes new bikes, customizations and tracks compared to it's predecessor MotoGP '06. At the time of writing it seems like only Xbox 360 owners will get the MotoGP '07 experience this fall but PC gamers usually should be addressed as well.
    Early in 2008 a well known character will make it to NextGen consoles: Conan the Cimmerian. Robert E. Howards protagonist is fighting against a variety of deadly enemies and so called 'elusive power that threatens the Hyborian world' with different fighting styles having plenty of weapons at his disposal. Nihilistic Software best known for Vampire - The Masquerade, Starcraft Ghost and Marvel Nemesis is assigned to do the job (PS3 and Xbox 360).
    Nearly the whole lineup of hardware (Nintendo DS, PC, PS2, PS3, PSP and Xbox 360) is supported by Juiced 2: Jot Import Nights. Released in the last quarter of this year gets full support from the Hot Import Nights Show be it up-to-date car customizations, race tracks and driving experience. Tuning fans will get a new drifting component which they can showcase at Hot Import Nights events.

    Conan sounds about the best. Stuntman could be a sleeper and something my older brother will probably want to get for the Xbox360

    I agree it did look cool, but I also remember them originally cancelling Warcraft 3 as well (it was orignally suppose to be out in 2001).
    They did this for the same reason, the graphics and gameplay wasnt up to date kind of like Ghosts graphics.
    However, unlike Warcraft 3, I doubt ghost will ever be made.

    I played the orignal stuntman. It was really fun, very fustrating, but it was one of those games that when you screwed up, you would get really really pissed off, but you just couldn't stop playing because you wanted to see what was next.

    It's one of those games that got caught in the change of graphics...

    its like...

    ghost was coded in HL1, while HL2 is coming...

    most of these games got canceled due to HL2 impress graphic standard.

    I didn't think it looked bad myself, I would have just polished what could have been polished and released the sucker. It would have sold, we all know it.
