    I'm not sure whether to be excited at the prospect of another brilliant old-style Thief game or depressed at the thought of a reimagined dumb-down action-shooter as Deus Ex 3 looks like it will be.

    I hope hope hope that this doesn't turn into the usual easymode ps3/xbox game. The originals weren't that easy, and I want more of that!

    i think the problem with the stealth gameplay genre is that it's relatively binary: either your totally invisible, or you accidently step into one gaurds vision and it's game over as they all hunt you down till death.

    I loved the original thief and the hitman series but they both suffer from this. I would be happy if it took a bit more of an assasins creed gameplay type, but with more technical ways to escape and avoid detection (water arrows and such)

    I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    YEEEEEEEEES! I LOVE Thief.
    Not so sure about the notion to update it though, Not sure I find the idea of "Thief 4:Modern Fellony" appealing, might ruin or muddy the formula that made it great in the first place, oh and let me guess It will star a relative of garrett.
    I think the similarities of an updated Thief and the AC franchise is unavoidable and if they update Thief it would still represent forthcoming AC titles (it looks like we due a lot more desmond) , remember though Theif has always been more slow moving considered in pace than running around at pace swinging off balconies and such.
