SCEE has just announced that a new Jak & Daxter game will launch later this year on PSP and PS2.
April fools from the PSblog? I was hoping for at least a PSN version.
Not fools - we've known this was coming for ages. And I told you all it was for PSP again and again. Well deep is redeemed :)
If this isnt a april fools joke. This is cool, Naughty Dog for a PS3 version after?? Would be nice.
BIG EDIT: Ok, since I wasn't arsed to actually read the article I assumed it was a joke, but now that I have read it and seen the pictures I've completely changed my mind. This does look very real indeed.
this was all i was waiting for!!!!! Now i can finally buy a PS2!! (breathing heavily, crazy eyes)
You were waiting for this game to buy a PS2?! *blank stare*
I never played the older games (wasn't into Ps2) but was always impressed by what I'd seen,and after playing uncharted (My first ND game) I've been looking forward to seeing this on PS3,not sure I'd go out and buy it for Ps2/PsP,but if it gets a Psn release for PsP i'd probably pick it up.
like GVON i havent played the previous games but I was always interested to play nad this would be great, but I really hope this isnt a joke, because I mean all these jokes today are starting to piss me off, just like the psp 2 news , which I still have hope, eventhough little hope, that it isnt a prank
Edited my first post because I was too lazy to read the article. :P Anyway, looks great. Just wish they announce a Jak game for the ps3 :(
Seriously guys, anyone on this website who thinks this is actually REAL should be banned from this site. Naughty dog makes Jack & Daxter. Naughty Dog is working on Uncharted 2 which will release later this year. Naughty dog is not going to to release another game to a TRILOGY on a dead console. And it defintely wouln't be released on the PSP as well. Come on people.
Lol it's real Matrix. Resistance is made by Insomniac, but the PSP version was outsourced. When Naughty Dog do Jak, they'll be making it for PS3, but for now the PSP game is outsourced. This story was sent as an official press release. It's official.
I hope it at least comes to PSN.
Hey rock on I'd love a new Jak installment. High Impact did a great job on Secret Agent Clank so I'm curious to see how they do with another established series like Jak & Daxter. I hope they have what it takes to fill Naughty Dog's shoes in this series, although Naughty Dog has already said that a PS3 J&D game is coming sometime after Uncharted 2.
Its a pretty good attempt, but the graphics are wayyy too blocky. Definitely fake, the graphics of games aren't supposed to get worse. Seriously, compare the last jak game on the ps2 with this one, not even close.
theyll finally focus less on graphics and make a great game into an awesome game i dont think any jak and daxter is worse or better than the other all of them are long and story is great and characters are believable Jak and Daxter is the best series in gaming ever made but Mario is just on another epic level
God, Sony. At least release the dam game on the PS3. Enough with the PS2 already.
I know, but I think this is a joke. ^_^
People would be complaining about Sony not supporting the PS2. Probably because it is a PSP game is why its going to the PS2. Probably just a port.
I agree with you 100%... I have waited and waited for news on this game,along with Team Icos next game for what seems like ages,and to be honest I am unhappy that a series with this potential will not be getting all it could get.A PS3 version is what I wanted... @Godmars290...You are probably right.I hope you are not,and this is just a Aprils fools joke...
This is PSP game, keep that in mind. And later on or at the same time it will be released on PS2, just like Motorstorm PSP. So you have it people all wrong, this IS PSP game, don't forget that.
This is cruel. I don't know if this is real or not, happy, but sad it's not on PS3...if it IS real. EDIT: I don't know. I'm really confused by this, no idea how to feel, don't even know if this is real. But yeah, these games are becoming sparse and this should be a largely valued franchise for Sony. I am going to be so mad with Sony if they are messing about. This has completely shocked me, and it actually seems reasonable as if it COULD be real. But still, HIGs aren't that bad.
Cajun Chicken..... We seem to have already lost Sly Cooper this gen,unless they announce something after Infamous.Now Jak? At least we still have Ratchet.But where oh where are my quirky action/adventure platfomers? More platformers please,less generic grungy 1st person shooters...
GIVE IT TO ME!
I will be amazed if this is an April Fools Joke considering the name has been trademarked for years.
I didn't know that. Funny if it comes true.
1st April :\
But you know what I hate more? People who don't read. xP "Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier releases this Autumn, and just in case you were wondering, this isn’t an April Fools."
Pretty ironic statement considering the last post of yours that I responded to. Regardless, just because they say it isn't an April Fool's doesn't mean that they are telling the truth. As much as I love Jak, I'm hoping for April Fool's because we need a PS3 Jak now.
I don't think its a joke since its a whole new developer, not Naughty Dog
Anyone who complains about it not being on the ps3 needs to stop flapping their lips. I'm honestly getting tired of explaining how Naughty Dog works. >.< Do you honestly think High Impact Games could handle J&D on the PS3?
Yeah, look what S6 did with SOCOM. *holds sides of face in hands* Oyi yoi yoi.
what?? No PS3 version? you've got to be kidding me, at least the PSP got something. EDIT: Hold up, this game is being made by some second rate developers? Guess it should come on PSN too at least. btw i didnt see your message ^
High Impact Games have great potential, of course, not ND, but never the less, R&C: Size Matters was awesome on the PSP.
THIS BETTER NOT BE A JOKE.
"Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier releases this Autumn, and just in case you were wondering, this isn’t an April Fools." Plus, like resistance100 said, "The Lost Frontier" has been trademarked for a while now.
but why PS2?
Hmm, would be better on PS3 by ND with such a title. Personally a little disappointed that Ready At Dawn aren't making this for PSP, although. High Impact Games seem to be going places. Does look a bit...well, not of the acceptable quality ATM TBH. I'll still take this with a pinch of salt. But this would be the cruelest April Fools ever if this isn't real.
I'd rather have [email protected] working on it. R&C:SM was pretty good though. @Arsenal4Ever Because PSP (0.<)
Cajun Chicken... I actually hope it is a joke.It seems to be true however... You mentioned that this would be the cruelest April Fools ever if this isn't real. I would actually want this to be a prank... If this is the long awaited Jak,than how much longer must we wait for a PS3 version? I get the feeling they know a large audience still own PS2's and they will make more cash with it than a PS3 version. They have turned over a unique major IP to another company,looking to make some easy extra cash,instead of giving the series their own magical touch and love......I would have hoped for them to expand,as Insomniac have done,and create this alongside the Uncharted series... If this is true a fantastic series has turned into a cash cow.Count me disapointed.
I get what you mean, but some Jak is better than no Jak. I'm mixed about this, this should be something in ND's or AT LEAST Ready At Dawn's hands and on the PS3 with Ratchet. I...Don't...know...and...it's ...killing...me.
They should make a Jak 4 for the ps3. It would be tight.
Ah! we need this on the ps3 too
If this is true, then I guess that means Naughty Dog is done with the series. They made the Crash Bandicoot games on the PS1, the Jak & Daxter games on the PS2, and I guess now only Uncharted games on the PS3. It seems like 1 new IP per new generation of console.
True,looks like it....I was hoping for them to expand as Insomniac have done...For me Jak could have been something extra special with all the PS3 strength behind it.
:( I want ND to make Jak again... ...I'll check the back of the instruction book when the PSP one comes out. ;)
but i wonder why Sony didn't announce this at GDC
I think it is a joke, look at how bad it looks...first Jak game looks better than this. On other hand if it isn't a joke i am interested. Wish it was also on PSN, why not?
Yeah, I'd be very annoyed with Sony if this was a joke. I am seriously waiting to play a Jak game, but it should really be [email protected] making this.
I rather get it on the psp.
I hope the next Jak comes out on PS3 after this one and have just a good an epic title.
my PS3 has retrocomp. with PS2 games, so... i dont care, still i have more than enough with the games right now, i still dont have RE5,SF4 and u want me to purchase this?? i dont have a wallet anymore! i sold it too!! now the one burning are my pants lol
i believe this isn't April fool's only because a PSP J&D was rumored ages ago but where's my next-gen version dammit!!
For the love of god people. IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. Crash = PS1 J&D = PS2 Uncharted = PS3 New IP = PS4 *picks up cricket bat* *waits for next person to ask*
However, ND couldn't keep Crash because of it belonging to Universal. Jak still belongs to Sony, so ND *COULD* still choose to make it and they've been teasing so much, that they should, the fanbase is there. EDIT: ND made the first 4 Crash Bandicoot games, Sony was still involved with Crash Bash, then Crash went to Konami with Traveller Tale's developing ing...then pretty much anyone on the black market, lol. EDIT 2: I certainly hope so, Deep. Like I said, I'll look at the back of the instruction book.
so who made Crash 2 and 3?
ND will make Jak for the PS3. And feel free to not believe me - but I'm not often wrong :)
WTF!? I hope it's Fool's joke. New Jak game HAS to be made by Naughty Dog and has to come to the next gen IMO.
I agree. But it's a business. So they know the numbers,better than outsiders. After seeing Ratchet in HD,I want jak in HD. A game like jak goes hand in hand with "Eye candy".Plus with the PS3 power you get better physics,A.I.,etc,etc...And I recall ND mentioning that "if" they would make a Jak on the PS3 that their would be more than just a graphics overhaul.That would be a shame to lose.... Apparently RAD has a game in the works. Hopefully it has something to do with J&D.But if I recall it was for both the PS360....So that would eliminate jak....
NOOO!!!! I want a next-gen Jak and Daxter game. I've been a huge follower of the Jak and Daxter series since it first came out and still own all of them for the PS2... I've been wanting a PS3 version for ages. The screenshots look "o.k.", but to me Jak 2 and Jak 3 looked a lot better... this Jak game looks like it's less gritty and mature than Jak 2 and 3 as well. After Naughty Dog finishes up Uncharted 2, I seriously hope they go back and make at LEAST 1 more Jak and Daxter and I want it on the PS3. Oh well, I guess I'll just buy the PS2 version... I'm a huge Jak and Daxter fan, so I've gotta buy it. High Impact Games better not screw it up.
I agree!!! This along with Team ICo's next game are my most anticipated.... Not being on the PS3 and getting the most out of it would be a loss and disapontment...
Oh deear, not on PS3, moving on here.
high impact making this game??? with last gen graphic?? those pic. look like old ratchet & clank graphic's damn, naughty dog should had insomnia made the game ps3 quality.
I;m pretty sure this is fake, and I hope it is because I want the new Jak and Daxter game to be on the PS3/made by Naughty Dog
i find it difficult to believe that ND is allowing jak to be released on ps2 but NOT ps3? strange........i'll still get it. i'm into the "jak" universe and stories that come with it. but i was hoping for a ps3 jak. i've even read interviews with ND guys saying they're anxious to see what jak would look like using the UC engine. i guess i'm kinda skeptical on this "news". (especially on april 1st) but, any J&D news is good. edit: i just remembered something else! when ND took out the copyright for "the lost frontier", it was said to BE a ps3 game. so what gives? i'm thinking this is a joke.
Yup to everything you said.... This series deserves the attention and all the PS3 has to offer for it to be the best it can be....
If it was real wouldn't they announce it yesterday with the PS2 price cut.
looks like I'll have to dust my PSP to play this one. Daxter was one the best games for the PSP so far.
From what I have read this is real, but why in the universe would they announce this on April 1st, so until tomorrow I will continue to deny this. All I have to say is Naughty Dog (my favorite game company) better make one for the PS3. Uncharted is awesome but I would give it all up for one more Jak game.
are you phucking kidding me.. ps2 and psp?
