Rumor: Jak coming to PSP?

Daxter was a tremendous success on PSP, even without the presence of his broody, angsty teen co-star, Jak. Well, a rumor is circulating around the web, speaking about the possibility of a PSP Jak game. The (warning) oft-unreliable Wikipedia appears to have a record of the rumor: it began when the resume of voice actor Robin Atkins Downes revealed two unannounced titles: Jak PSP and Big. Since then, Big has turned into Naughty Dog's upcoming PS3 title, Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. Could Jak PSP be far behind?

The only other evidence supporting this rumor comes from a previous job opening at Naughty Dog, requesting PSP-specific developers. With Ready at Dawn working on God of War, it could be possible that Naughty Dog is working on a PSP Jak game internally. However, with no concrete evidence available right now, this rumor remains exactly that. But, a new Jak game would certainly be a good part of a revived effort to make the platform successful.

Daxter previewed at CES

Seeing as I had the misfortune of blowing my entire nest egg in Las Vegas over the New Year, it was either get back to work in the real world or beg for change to attend the Consumer Electronics Show. Sadly, reality (and nagging hunger pains) prevailed, and so we here at PSP Fanboy had to leave the games previewin' to the ever-present gaming gurus of IGN.

They only have good things to report on Daxter, the by-far PSP-exclusive spinoff of Naughty Dog's trademark platformer franchise, Jak and Daxter. The bi-pedaled smart-alecky sidekick gets his own game this time around, and IGN reports that the portable version seems to suffer no shortcomings even when compared to its home console brethren. Considering that bad frame rates and other acts of corner cutting seem to be commonplace in our expectations of handheld games, it's nice to be able to look forward to a blissfully full-bodied rendition of one of gaming's most beloved pairings.
