Will Oblivion ever come out?


Happy 10th un-birthday, Duke Nukem Forever! As we "celebrate" your un-life, we want to think about a PSP game with an analogous development time: Oblivion. CVG reminds us that the title was supposed to launch by now, possibly in time for the recent PS3 release. They contacted Ubisoft for some word on whether or not the title was actually still in development, but they received a noncommittal "no comment."

Gamestop's release date for the title continues to shift, having moved from last year to this, from April to September, back to April, and now December. Do you think Oblivion will ever come out for our system?

Oblivion gets a huge delay


Supposedly, the PSP version of Oblivion was supposed to come out next month. But, considering the complete lack of updates on this highly anticipated game, we were skeptical, to say the least. Looks like the game's been pushed back ... all the way to September. GameStop is reporting the ship date as 9/3, a delay as massive as the game itself. Hopefully, this will go a long way in improving its quality.

2007 year of the PSP RPG?


The number of RPGs scheduled to come out this year on PSP would not be able to be counted on two hands. In fact, you'd need more than three hands to count them and then you're in Goro territory. Point is, if you're an RPG fan, PSP is the system to own this year. Don't believe me? Well here's the list of RPGs coming out in 2007 according to IGN's release list:

January
Legend of the Heroes III: Song of the Ocean

February
Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure
Monster Kingdom: Jewel Summoner

March
Valhalla Knights
Dungeons & Dragons: Tactics

April
The Elder Scrolls Travels: Oblivion
Riviera

Quarter 2
Alien Syndrome

Quarter 4
DC Universe RPG

TBA 2007
Legend of the River King
Far East of Eden: The Fourth Apocalypse
Landstalker
Harvest Moon Boy & Girl
Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII
Jeanne d'Arc
Final Fantasy Tactics

I don't even want to know what the collective amount of hours all these RPGs would take to beat. Which of these are you looking forward to playing most?

Oblivion: first magazine scan found


The November issue of OPM has exclusive details of the upcoming PSP version of Oblivion. The scans of the game look not too shabby... it looks a heck of a lot better than the N-Gage Elder Scroll's game. According to the article, the PSP version of Oblivion will be "a very different game with a different story line... it has the experience of the dungeon romp. It doesn't have wide-open, wander-the-landscape kind of stuff."

Even though the game's functionality seems a little stripped down, Obivion for PSP will still feature a character creation system, and 18 of the original game's 21 skills. The controls are going to be simplified, of course, and the designers cite Metroid Prime as a source of inspiration, which is only a good thing.

Check out the full magazine scan, if you like, or buy the issue when it hits newsstands.

Bethesda confirms Oblivion to PSP in Spring 2007

Bethesda confirms Oblivion to PSP in Spring 2007Yesterday, we broke news that 1UP broke news of the Official Playstation Magazine breaking news of Oblivion heading to the PSP and PS3. Did ya get all that?

Well, now we get confirmation right from the source. Yeah, that's right, Bethesda has issued a press release confirming Oblivion is headed to the PSP in spring 2007. In America, the game will be published by Bethesda, while Ubisoft will publish it in Europe.

As if you didn't already know, this is a huge win for the PSP and PS3. I don't think there's anyone in their right mind who would argue that the PSP is the only major handheld system on the market that has enough horsepower to properly handle a game like Oblivion.

It's times like this that help me forget about things like hardware sales charts and focus on the massive amount of great games on the PSP's horizon. It truly is a great time to be a gamer.

Rumor becomes reality: Oblivion travels to PSP


Back in April, PSP Fanboy unearthed a huge rumor: Oblivion was coming to the PSP. When the game started to appear on EB Games' website, we knew that something was going to be made, although some of you thought we were "deluded." Well, looks like we were right: 1UP has confirmed the existence of a new PSP game entitled Elder's Scrolls Travels: Oblivion. The game will have similar gameplay to the Xbox 360 (and now PS3) version of the game, but will take place in a new setting.

This sounds like great news. Considering how powerful the PSP hardware is, I'm sure it'll be better than the previous Elder's Scrolls Travels game, which appeared exclusively on the N-Gage (pictured above).
