Stiq Figures, August 5 - 11: Canceled games edition

Welcome to Stiq Figures, where the sales data is after the break and the posts don't matter.

We've been hearing an awful lot about Call of Duty: Ghosts lately, and we can't help but be reminded of the ghosts of past games that never quite made it to store shelves. Starcraft: Ghost only existed as screenshots in gaming magazines and as demos for press events, but our imaginations spent the game's development time speculating on the possibilities and the game's potential. Apparently that potential was enough to amount to the project being placed on indefinite hold, but still, it was glorious while we were able to imagine a third-person Starcraft adventure.

Mega Man fans sport the more recent scar on their hearts over the cancellation of Mega Man Legends 3, but scores of gamers have at some point felt the burn from hyping themselves up for The Game That Got Away. Share your heartbreak with us in the comments, or just repress everything you've ever felt while reading up on Japanese hardware sales figures after the jump!
