New Jak & Daxter coming to PS3 this Christmas?

Latest internet rumours are hinting that a new Jak & Daxter is in the works for PS3 with a release penned in for this Christmas.

CRN are reporting Jonathan Fargher, SCEE representative, as the culprit when in a recent interview defending criticisms made about the PS3 he stated the following:

"It will be towards the end of the year when the big titles start to show what the PS3 can really do and hopefully make people feel more comfortable about the decision they made to invest in our hardware."

Titles due to hit the shelves in the Christmas run-up include the latest installment of favourites such as Grand Theft Auto, Metal Gear Solid, Ratchet and Clank, Crash Bandicoot and Jak and Daxter, he added.
Jak & Daxter were a firm favourite of ours on PS2 and a huge commercial success, and whilst it's very likely that the twosome are set to re-appear on PS3 at some point, a surprise Christmas release would make our year. Sony, let it be true!!

And it is probably not being worked on by naughty dogs but, some other company. It will most likely be announced at e3, and most likely had over 2 years of dev time.

Well if this is true I think this is great news. But I can't help but feel like this rumor will not come to light as a PS3 game but a PSP game instead. The only reason I bring this up is because several months back over at Naughty Dog they said they were working on a game for the PS3 called Big which now is called Uncharted: Drakes Fortune and another game for the PSP. So I wonder if this is the game. But if a Jak game could come out on the PS3 I bet it would be great.

I won't be surprised if it ends up being PSP game. Made by some smaller studio. Same sceraio as with "High Impact Games" making Ratchet & Clank:Size Matters for PSP.

There are only 2 possible scenarios

1.) This is BS since on episode 5 of Moon Show podcast(insomniac podcast) head of Naughty Dog said that they are not making new Jak but it is something that they consider for future. Now they are totally focused on Uncharted. Check that episode is you don't believe me.

2.)Game is actually being made but not by Naughty Dog but by another studio, which would be not surprising if you take into consideration that Jak is HUGE IP for Sony. Fanbase is huge.
