if another new game debuts in season 35...

I think the game should have Bobs name in the title. I know there is already Barkers markers and Barkers bargain bar but I think another game with Bob or Barker in the title would be a nice touch for his last season of price.

I don't understand why so many people think it's a great idea to keep Bob's proverbial ghost in every nook and cranny of The Price is Right.  They've already given him an honor that will last beyond his tenure: they named the studio after him.  Perhaps they will do another by the time he retires.  But once he leaves, I don't want the show to be some sort of memorial to Bob.  It will be time to move on.  When Carson retired, they didn't change the title of his show to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson Hosted By Jay Leno."

I think that Penny Ante would be great as Bob's last "new" game. It might seem a little weird having it premiere with a new host.

Because so many people have made the association that Bob is The Price Is Right.

You've nailed it again.  He's got the studio, the opening announcement, and his name in big letters on the new Race Game curtain.  That's certanily sufficient honours.
Roger Dobkowitz's Seven Commandments of The Price Is Right:
1. Tape and edit the show as if it were live.
2. Never tell the contestant what to do.
3. Size matters. (The bigger the prize, the better the prize and the bigger the reaction.)
4. All prizes are good.
5. Never do anything on the show that would embarrass a parent with a kid watching.
6. Never put on a prize that would make the show look cheap.
7. Itís the game, stupid! (Itís about the game.)

you guys are nuts...You're forgetting that Bob has become like a father figure to a great many people in the US and the world over.  He's just like Cronkite, except a WHOLE LOT BIGGER...When Bob leaves, I don't think TPIR will last for a very long time, unless they get another "older" and tenured host everybody is familiar with already...like Wink Martindale or somebody...
