According to user FamilyGuy1 on the PS3Forums, the latest issue of EGM (October 2007) contains some juicy information. On page 60, in a box titled "Q-Tips"... continued at the jump.
I got a chuckle out of the "fake" reports I can confirm the rumour mill in page 60 of the EGM does indeed say Naughty will make Jak and Daxter next. Although I thought the series had ended. Anywho, i'm really happy if the rumour turns out to be true.
reported it as fake as I couldn't believe it, now I "repent".
Sony and Naughty dog did file a copyright of a jak and Daxter, lost frontier sometime earlier 2006. right just prior to the PS3's showing at e3 2006. if anything i could say that Like Insomniac. ND probably has had a full year of pre production on that game like Insomniac did with tools of Destruction. and by the time ND is done with uncharted, i'm betting that they will unveil this game by some press event. we can even look at TGS07 for a quick unveil.
I think you are right on the TGS part. I personally would to see the series on PS3. Jak Daxter were awesome and hilarious.
I don't think they'll announce anything before Uncharted is released - that's just bad marketing.
play another Jak and Daxter again.
Egm rumors are bs and they only make them up to fill the page.
Eh Jak and Daxter..... Giv me god of War A+... Gamestats 96%/100
We knew this was going to happen. I want a Uncharted 2 instead of a next gen Jak. Same like Insomniac should make a Resistance 2, or make a online mode for Ratchet 5.
I'm gonna approve this because it really isn't fake. I got the issue of EGM 3 days ago and this rumor is in it.
but still a rumor
YAY ! dude these games were kick ass dude ( except for jak x, huge disappointment ) played jak 2 and it was just so fun. anyone with a ps3 should try this game out
That would be wicked cool. Jak on PS3 along with Daxter.
It would be cool, that's for sure. We need more games like Jak and Daxter.
all this wannabe-news everywhere.. i could also have said that after uncharted they are desperate to do another jak & daxter.. it has been rumored since the first second they unveiled uncharted. for me, this is obvious.
until picking Daxter up for my PSP. Matter of fact, I just finally finished it no more than two nights ago. Such an excellent, FUN game! (well, except for the overly-abrupt ending). A PS3 version of the game would be very welcomed as a result.
Nice rumor, Although I'm sure many already speculated this, especially after IGN reported the whole Patent thing a while ago. As long as Uncharted is on schedule then I'm all aboard with this one. No rest for the Naughty I guess
The series may even be better then R&C. I thought the animation was always more fluid.
it would be stupid to think a new Jak game isn't in some sort of production..
i lovejak and daxter. i think its one of the best teams ever =D.
...and Naughty Dog themselves even *SAID that they were considering continuing the Jak and Daxter series, but they wanted to take a break, and try something new, hence, Uncharted. i'm *POSITIVE they'll continue one of the Playstation's best-selling franchises in the future. hell, who knows, they may even do an Insomniac, and release a title every year: this year, Uncharted, next year, Jak: Lost Frontier, the next year, Uncharted 2, the next year, Jak Lost Frontier 2. developers are *ALWAYS thinking ahead, even when console manufacturers are *NOT.
ive played jak 2 and 3 but ive never played number 1 but i like both of them i hope this rumor is true though:D
Hope its true, I love Jak and Dax. One of the reasons I got a ps3 in the first place was bcause of the chance of getting to play jak next gen. and god of war 3, and ratchet, and this, and that...
Figboy seems right about on here. ND and Insomniac. while separate companies, share a ton in common(including art and technology assets in the past). It wouldn't shock me at all if they also shared this particular game making philosophy (two series, one installment per year). its brilliant as it means each game still has a two+ year dev time, yet to the gamers we see it like "ooh, new game every year!!". Anyway, the fact that IGN has had J & D: Lost Frontier in their list of unreleased 2008 games for PS3 says something too!
I don't see what people saw in Jak & Daxter. I prefer Ratchet & Clank. more destruction that pulled me into that series. Yeah I played 1st 2 JaK an Daxter but it was rather bland in my taste compared to Ratchet Series!
they'll give it over to ready at dawn naughty dog r 2 busy with uncharted
