Update 10:13 AM: Looks like you might get Milo in your home after all. Aaron Greenberg tweeted the following minutes ago:
"Project Milo absolutely continues in development at Lionhead Studios, it is just not a product we plan to bring to market this holiday"
Among the most talked-about absences from E3 2010 was the no-show of Milo. The computer-generated boy engendered reactions ranging from amazement to disgust at E3 2009, but never showed for 2010. If you've been waiting for the home version of Milo, though, you're going to be sad: According to Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg, he's just a tech demo.
“The Milo Project is something that Lionhead Studios in their labs had developed. Last year we unveiled the Project Natal technology, we showed a bunch of technology demos as part of that,” Greenberg said on ABC's Good Game. “And obviously [Milo] is a technology demo that continues to exist, but right now it’s not a game that we’re planning to bring to market.”
I was looking forward to locking that kid up in my basement and tormenting him... just like I've done to the others. (Oh, crap, said too much.)
