    Ps2 How do you feel the cancelled Vectorman reboot would have done commercially?

    In 2003, a Vectorman reboot was being made for the PS2 (with the character looking a bit like Halo's Master Chief). Pseudo Interactive were behind the game's development, who created the 'Cell Damage' (2001) and 'Full Auto' (2006) franchises.

    The title was cancelled before its 2004 planned release date and Sega's Vectorman has been shelved ever since.



    That's one of the few game footage trailers above. How do you feel it would have done commercially for that time period?

    Would there be enough sales to keep the series running? Or would the franchise ultimately still end up with the same fate, destined only for Genesis compilations (like now)?

    About as well as the Final Fight reboot. Space Invaders and Altered Beast. AKA poorly. It just looks like a million other games that gen and nothing like the source. That was the issue with most of these remakes/reboots. Everything had to be darker and edgier. Lame. Also, I love how the trailer uses the music to EVERY SINGLE SOLITARY GAME TRAILER that generation. It's become a running joke on Giant Bomb Game Tapes.

    Life!? ... What console is that on?

    Vectorman is entirely perfect.
    Vectorman 2 is a gimped cash-grab.
    Vectorman PS2 is cannon-fodder.

    PS2 is teh suck.

    It doesn't look that bad for a PS2 game, and I kind of miss the character so much that I probably would've loved that game even if it was just a mediocre shooter and little more.

    I was more gutted with the dropping of Chakan the forever man II. Such a cool looking character and an IP with potential

    Admittedly the first Chaken did suck to play and listen to. The sequel on dreamcast might have been at least a 5/10 action adventure or at least a decent soul reaver like game.
    TRUST BUT VERIFY IS ALWAYS THE RIGHT THING TO DO.
