    The only people who took idea's from Fahrenheit/Indigo was the independents. No mainstream publisher in the last 5 years have released a 'Fahrenheit' game. It unlikely they will do a 'Heavy Rain' type game either.

    This has been published because it's French. it would not have come to market if it was proposed at a major U.S. publisher's. This goes for other European titles like The Witcher and STALKER, amongst others. Most of the interesting titles are now coming out of Europe. If a European developer says he has a new CRPG coming out, you can bet it will be a CRPG. When an American developer says the same, it can be an Alpha Protocol or a Jade Empire or a Mass Effect, none of which are true CRPG;s. in the old fashioned sense.

    I would say with the exception of Bethesda, for example, no American develop is working on old fashioned CRPG's, yet from Europe we will get The Witcher II, Two Worlds II, Gothic IV and have already had this year Spellforce 2 and Divinity 2, last year we got Drakensang and Romance of the Three Kingdoms to name but two. In the same space of time, we have had Fallout 3, Mass Effect 2, Borderlands and Bioshock 2. Only Fallout 3 was a true old school CRPG.

    So Europe is where originality and PC only games are now the standard, and the American market is just going gung-ho for the consoles.
