I don't mean to be pedantic, but Dark Souls isn't literally a Demon's Souls sequel - it's only in a spiritual sense, as Demon's is owned by Sony.

Anyway, it's great to see so many publishers getting on board. I think Namco have a few interesting games in the pipelines (I am keen to see the new Ridge Racer, from Bugbear - the massively undervalued developers of FlatOut) and would like to see if and how Inversion will put a spin on a very crowded genre.
