Over the weekend, reports have surfaced online that both Naughty Dog’s Uncharted series and Media Molecule’s cutesy sequel will be making the jump from their current PS3 homes to the smaller screen.
Apparently the latest issue of US games mag Game Informer (via CVG) mentions the potential portable Uncharted in a discussion about the still-not-announced PSP2: “”The developers we talked to described the PSP2 as a very powerful machine,” the mag says. “We’ve even heard that a new Uncharted spin-off…is in the works.”
The magazine also speculates that this Uncharted PSP could stand in for a full Uncharted 3, but obviously that situation has changed since the issue went to print. Sony could be looking to the Uncharted series, as a visual highlight of the PS3’s collection, to show off the new portable’s graphical power.
On top of that, Game Australia is currently listing LittleBigPlanet 2 for a 2011 release on PSP. All the product information is the same as the PS3 version, although retailer listings can be, and often are, wrong, so take this one with a pinch of salt. If true however, it could mean either a PS3 and PSP release of the same game, or a followup to the original PSP port of LittleBigPlanet, to come later in the year. If so, it’d seem more likely that the game would be coming to PSP2 instead of the current handheld, but obviously Game won’t have a category for that just yet.
Naturally, without an announcement for the console itself, we won’t be seeing Sony coming out and confirming these games just yet, but it’s interesting to see what we might be playing on the go when the company finally gets round to announcing and releasing the thing.
