With the incredible processing power of todays gaming systems, games more than ever have the potential of delivering some beautiful HD visuals. While facial animation, detailed character models and advanced physics simulators are all feeling the benefit of modern technology, nothing makes you stop and stare like an epic sweeping vista.
I know there are many Mirror’s Edge fans in the wild who are longing for a sequel for the well received game which did not, by the way, show a stellar performance at retail. Well, because of the poor sales and development costs for Battlefield 3, Mirror’s Edge 2 will not happen anytime soon, with EA putting the franchise on hold altogether.
Although Mirror’s Edge received decent reviews, the game didn’t sell quite well. It has a mad, cult-like following, but the it failed in EA’s eyes. It just didn’t live up to what the publisher had hoped, and according to EA Games boss Frank Gibeau, the game “fell short”.
Yeah, I know, Mirror’s Edge didn’t sell very well. I think the game barely did 2 million units, but that doesn’t mean it was bad. In fact, it was one of the better experiences when it released back in November, 2008, save a few annoyances.
Gamescom’s barely out, and EA’s already hyping up its Tokyo Game Show (TGS) showing, making known that its planning “several all new game reveals and announcements”.
Bring it, then.
