PSblog | Behind the Classics: Jak & Daxter

Posted by Fred Dutton // SCEE Blog Manager -

When I took over the SCEE PlayStation Blog a month or two back, I promised you a few new regular features. Today, I’m happy to unveil the first of them: Behind The Classics. Every fortnight (well, that’s the plan at least), we’ll be talking to the creative force behind a vintage PS One or PlayStation 2 title. To kick things off, Naughty Dog co-founder Andy Gavin was kind enough to lend us his time to discuss the making of seminal 2001 PS2 platformer Jak & Daxter. (Andy Gavin, Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak and Daxter, Jak and Daxter HD Collection, Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier, PS2, PS3)

Good read.

There are simply not enough 3D platformers like this around any more. It's why I'm anticipating Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time and the new Ratchet & Clank so much. I hope next gen ditches the overwhelming FPS obsession and brings about a new wave of action platformers.

Love this idea for the psblog....the internets wasn't all that big when a lot of these things came out and now that it is the info should be spread to the people.

Jak and Daxter will always have that special place in my heart. They where my childhood. Im so glad they released the collection.
