Wired Magazine has released their 11th annual list of "Vaporware Awards", which honor the biggest "unfulfilled promises" in gaming and tech.
Hitting #10 is Sony's Home, which they claim fits because it's still in beta and isn't a final product yet. They also write:
"Home doesn't even succeed as a Second Life rip-off, owing to the fact that there simply isn't much to do. You can walk around in the mall and spend real money on virtual clothes branded with advertisements, or you can hang out at the bowling alley and play crappy video games. That's about it. Even the avatar creation system is incredibly scaled-down."
Number 9 is the Myka, a set-top box with a built-in BitTorrent client that would make pirating movies and TV shows a breeze... probably why it isn't out yet.
Skipping down to #4, we find Blizzard's StarCraft II, but I have to disagree with the game's inclusion. Blizzard never said the game was coming out in 2008 and therefore should not be considered an unfulfilled promise.
Hit the article for the full list and I'll give you one guess at good 'ol #1... it's a classic.
What were you looking forward to this year that just didn't get released?
