I would imagine USFIV will eventually be ported to next gen consoles, Capcom loves it's ports.
I totally believe that there is no SFV in development and Ono simply doesn't have the budget. Development costs were already prohibitive, and costs will continue to grow
Did we see any technically impressive next gen Japanese titles at e3 this year other than Metal Gear? Japanese studios already lagged behind their western counterparts this gen (other than MGSIV and Gran Turismo) and I wonder if Japanese studios will be able to compete technically this gen either.
I think COD will outperform GTA5. COD will have the benefit of being on both generations of hardware right away, and the series hasn't showed any signs of slowing down. On the other hand, none of Rockstar's games this generation has outperformed GTA San Andreas. Rockstar has to prove that they can reach those sales figures again.
Incredibly sad. I've been following Giant Bomb since the beginning, and the Bombcast has been a big part of my week since it was just Jeff and Ryan discussing sodas back in 2008. My condolences to Ryan's family and friends.
