See Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier's high drama, hijinks

We have to be honest: If you haven't played any of the Jak and Daxter games (or it's been a while since you have) the context of the latest trailer for the series' PSP debut, The Lost Frontier, will be lost on you. Thankfully, it's brimming with airborne action, Eco pirates (with airships, no less) and, of course, plenty of comic relief provided by Daxter.

I hope it turns out as good as the other titles.

Are they ever going to make a console version again?

SpaceSquirrel5219d ago

Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier is for ps2 as well.

-MD-5219d ago

Let me specify.

Will they ever make a PS3 version of Jak and Daxter?

lloyd_sr15219d ago

It's Sony's decision to make. Would you rather have Uncharted 3 or JAK 4?

-MD-5219d ago

Jak 4 because we don't even have Uncharted 2 yet.

Ready for another Jak and Daxter title. Loved the trilogy. Hopefully after this game comes out the main team will start thinking about another console version. I fell in love with the the setting of the second game. Even if they were to only make a game that focused on a side story I would love to revisit that world again on the ps3.

more jak and daxter anything!

this looks pretty good actually, and she's gonna be a sage?? woah crazy

good thing i still kinda remember the story, with it's time bending ending

Cajun Chicken5219d ago

Going to be awesome. Well, they've got the cinematics and writing down to a tee. Good job so far High Impact, just need to see some gameplay.

ninsigma2784d ago

There was no conclusive ending to the franchise. There was so much more that could be done. Jak still had to face being Mar. I mean, there would be at least one more trip back in time because he had to build the city.

But I do agree that rebooting would be better. Simply because this is a different naughty dog to the one who created jak and daxter. Different people with different ideas. If they're gonna take on jak and daxter again, better to start from scratch and make it their own from the get go rather than trying to be new while being laden down by the originals.

andrewsquall2784d ago

Exactly. Also if Naughty Dog aren't involved, then just don't bother please. We don't want another Jak and Daxter The Lost Frontier, Spyro the Dragon after the PS1 days or any of the Halos after Bungie stopped making them to happen.

ninsigma2784d ago

Yep, I agree. As much as I'd love another one of these games, it's probably best to just leave it as it is.

pecorre2784d ago (Edited 2784d ago )

To be honest, the last Sly game was not developped by the original team and it was very good. If Naughty Dogs don't do it (they won't because they'll make The Last of Us 2), Sony could give it to a good developper.

Sharingan_no_Kakashi2784d ago

I would agree that the creative minds are different and thus they would make a different Jak experience, but because that's the case I'd say they should just leave Jak alone for now. Jak is my favorite franchise and if they change it I don't think I'd be happy.

Also, after pondering I realized why Jak didn't get a movie. He's not really a family friendly character like Ratchet and Sly. But, it being animated would also limit it's adult audience. There really is no market for a Jak movie.

*Jak and Daxter Shouldn't Get a Sequel until we get a new Crash Bandicoot first. There, fixed your title for you.

Ratchet & Clank v Jak & Daxter v Sly Cooper: Which Is the Best Series?

Ratchet and Clank, Sly Cooper, and Jak and Daxter ruled the roost back in the PS2 days. But how do they fare going up against each other?

DARKKENT2786d ago

Jak for me

But all three are great series

GigawattConduit2786d ago

I would kill someone for that Jak and Daxter reboot. Going off the concept art, it woulda looked gorgeous as hell.

naruga2786d ago (Edited 2786d ago )

while Jak &Daxter 1 is by far the best game overall (reminiscent of original Crash games) ,the others Jak entries not so much ...instead R&C it kept its quality and its gameplay/atmosphere/feeling intact along the multiple entries and i consieder it the best series ...Sly cooper imo needs abit more work to reach the others (especially in its art direction)

GigawattConduit2786d ago

Honestly, I played the sequels before the original Jak, and I like them much more than the original. It just...doesn't appeal to me like the other two do.

bouzebbal2786d ago

I Love all 3 but I do prefer Sly games.

Outside_ofthe_Box2786d ago (Edited 2786d ago )

Jak and Dax for me.

The third one if my favorite. Like gigawatt, I played 2 and 3 before I played the first Jak, so that could be the reason why I prefer both over the first.

As for the reboot... I rather ND leave Jak and Dax alone if they're gonna go that route. I still really really want another Jak game though. I can only imagine what ND could do with a open world Jak and Dax game on the PS4.

InactiveUser2785d ago (Edited 2785d ago )

I never got into Sly.. it always seemed too kiddie to me. Whether it is or not, that's the vibe I always felt, so I never bought a Sly game. I played a demo a while back, that's it.

Jak always pissed me off how you had to physically touch the drops/collectables instead of being within range and them gravitating or magnetizing to the player like in R&C. I did play some Jak though and thought there were some good parts, but I don't remember finishing any. I just remember turning at a pickup, thinking I was close enough and ready to move onto my next target/objective, but missing it and having to turn around again to get it. I got so mad a bunch of times, like why the hell don't they just gravitate to you like in R&C.

Therefore, I've always preferred R&C. I've liked the graphics, gameplay, characters, story, comedy, etc. Like others have said, besides a couple offshoots that were stinkers, they've been consistently good.

badz1492756d ago

R&C here all the way and Sly 2nd! the dark path J&D went with the 3rd really killed it for me and I still have a hard time pushing myself to finish it eventhough I got the HD collection during launch. I tried, but...I don't know. Dexter PSP game on the other hand was down right AMAZING! really love it!

really wish Sony would have let Sanzaru finished their vision of the Sly series and give him and the gang more chances like they did with R&C! it has only been 4 games and although another studio took over the for the 4th, the soul of the series is still in tact with fresher gameplay mechanics with the costumes. and most of you guys here are right! the ending of Thief in Time really left me wanting more! come on Sony...I hope they don't just leave it there!

Always Jak

The guy didn't even speak a word in the first game and I always found it better then Ratchet and Clank.

Antnee5342786d ago

I almost would love if naughty dog asked insomniac to do a remake/reimangining for jak and Daxter like they did with the new ratchet and clank

suli123452785d ago

Thats blasphemy my friend
