One of the downsides to the gaming industry is that not all visionary and unique games see the light of day. Many times developers have to shut down due to financial needs, move to other projects, or are bought out and have to shelve the idea or toss it completely. Some developers only needed a publisher to front retail and marketing dollars and in return providing something creative or visually advanced for its time. Other studios just met the dark-side of early PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 development costs and had to shut down entirely, selling IP's and technology to other studios at auction prices.
To highlight some of the best titles that "could have been," explore the vaporware graveyard compiling your favorites alongside screenshots, gameplay videos, and tech demos. These are all titles (PS3, Xbox 360, PC) that surpassed conceptual stage and had a chance at full development and release. What are some of your favorite cancelled games?

That demo of The Getaway 3 is still untouched to this day.

Is it safe to assume that Eight Days has been cancelled? I mean, there's been no mention of the title since its development was put on hold by Sony a couple years ago. Most people don't even remember it.
Too bad about Battlefront... I would love to see a new Battlefront game!
I remember being so hyped for Project Offset.
Oh the sadness!!
City of Metronome is my most interested game on that list. Followed by The Getaway just because its demo looked so incredible.
Gah, I remember Dreamers! They had a contest where you the winners dream would become a stage in game. Such a pity it was canned.
List is missing one game (unless the list was only about this generation) and it's Starcraft: Ghost.Man who chase after bus get exhausted, man who run in front of bus get tired
