Hoping for a PSP2 launch game :D

That'd be nice but I want them to rest Uncharted after Drake's Deception. They need to really bring in Jak 4 or a new IP. It's been too long since Jak in my opinion


I can dream. I loved Jak's open world and story, Jak 2 is still my favorite Naughty Dog game.

Somewhat strange fact:

Jak 1= Old Ruins
Jak 2= More urban areas
Jak 3= Desert

UC1= Old Ruins
UC2= Urban areas
UC3= Desert

Can you imagine a Jak game with Uncharted 3 graphics? Because I can't it's too much for me to fathom.

ksense2866d ago (Edited 2866d ago )

people really need to stop with the jak stuff. I would love them to do it but they can't. Activision bought the ip so it is not possible. if jak does come out it will be from diff developers anyways

edit = Apparently it is not jak but crash bandicoot that is part of activision. my bad

This is what they had to say when asked about jak back in march 2010

" Yeah, it’s hard to say. It’s hard to admit that would be in our past, because we definitely still have a real soft spot in the heart for the franchise. And I, in my fantasy, would love to be able to have the resources to be able to tackle that project. But, right now, Uncharted is sort of the focus of the studio for DLC. Maybe we could go to Jak and Daxter as the next project. Maybe we stick with Uncharted [laughs]. Maybe we come up with a new IP. It’s tricky to be able to tackle all of those at once. Right?

We don’t have the resources. So, we’re gonna have to choose our battles. I’m not sure whether Jak and Daxter will win that battle. Like you were saying, though, with trying to find a partner to work with us on the PSP version of Uncharted, I think it would be a shame if there weren’t a Jak and Daxter for the PS3 generation. So, if we can’t find a partner for one of those, then maybe we’re going to have to find a budget ourselves. [laughs]"

-Alpha2866d ago (Edited 2866d ago )

I'm pretty sure Activision didn't buy Jak.

Sony still owns publishing rights, it's just been thrown away at random developers like Crash and Spyro.

So no, I wont stop, I want Jak 4, it comes from a highly well-received franchise and IMO deserves a next gen iteration from Naughty Dog. The game, IMO, had a much better storyline than Uncharted, and a much better world and characters. Completely different games, but I still think Jak is better than Uncharted, the boss fights, gameplay, platforming, shooting, etc. was all ace.

@ksense above

That was after UC2 came out and they were supporting DLC. Numerous devs work on multiple IPs. Sucker Punch is bringing back Sly, Insomniac brought back Ratchet, and ND is the last of the trio to bring back Jak.

Zipper brought us MAG and Socom, etc.

Drake goes to space and kills Jack Sheppard the evil nemesis. The every man beats the robotic Master Chief with out the ability to strafe and bunny hop.

Skip_Bayless2866d ago

If Naughty Dog can only make one game and keep the quality like Uncharted 2 quality then I will always rather have them work on Uncharted than Jak. Let someone else in Sony borrow the engine and make Jak.

thugbob2866d ago


I love Jack also. I really want a Jak 4 also. I played all three Jack games and my all time favorite was Jak 3. That's what made me fall in love with the Jak series.

The thing is I love Uncharted also. I didn't like uncharted 1 very much, but uncharted 2 was a master piece in my opinion. I am really pumped for UC3 and wouldn't mind more uncharted games as long as the games a good quality.

I do want them to make a Jak 4 also. I really like the jak series and hopefully we'll see Jak on the PS3.

scar202866d ago

Actually there's rumor that there is one in the works i read it in this months game informer.

TheLastGuardian2866d ago (Edited 2866d ago )

Naughty Dog has a tradition with each Playstation console. On every console they release 3 games in their series and then a kart racing game. Crash Bandicoot then Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back then Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped then CTR Crash Team Racing. On PS2 Naughty Dog made Jak And Daxter: The Precursory Legacy then Jak 2 then Jak 3 then Jak X: Combat Racing. Naughty Dog are one of my favorite game developers. I think Uncharted Team Racing would make a great PS3 game in 2013.

rezzah2866d ago


thought your idea does sound realistic based on the history of games that ND created, Uncharted is not a cartoonish game in any way. It is more realistic, therefore making a random racing would probably be a starnge experince for the Uncarted series.

RedDead2866d ago (Edited 2866d ago )

I dunno, they've been making 4 games per xonsole since the Ps1 and with each new console they make a new francise, first it was crash 1-4 then Jak1-4 now Uncharted 1-3, and they may make another. 2015 is probably when they'll either release a new francise or start up an old one. Ps4 launch title maybe?

Edit i was beaten to it haha

id love to see them try a new IP...seeing as how they can make some amazing story driven games....i could only imagine how well they would do if they went into a completely different genre

ChineseDemocracy2866d ago

I'd totally buy that; kart racing with Sully with his wise cracking comments every time a power-up is acquired.

ReservoirDog3162866d ago


Never thought about more than 3.

beavis4play2866d ago

i have! there are SO many great legends of treasure and adventure........i hope they continue to make UC games.

however - their next game (i hope) will be the start of a new jak and daxter trilogy.

ReservoirDog3162866d ago

I just pray they never go for the giant spider route. Don't think I can play it if has my greatest fear in life...

MGRogue20172866d ago (Edited 2866d ago )

They mentioned that a while ago.. As long there is demand & fans want more, there will always be more Uncharted :)

Nitrowolf22866d ago

They already said this
in fact, i can't find the link, but i remember them specifically saying that they will continue to make Uncharted games as long as Fans want them.

hetz152866d ago

And I won't allow them to stop until they make Uncharted with Atlantis or mummies in it :)

Cajun Chicken2866d ago (Edited 2866d ago )

Naughty Dog usually work purely in trilogies and a bonus game. How long can they keep up with Uncharted? What more is there to discover?...

I'd love an Uncharted game every two years...but I also got used to that with Jak. Although I miss Jak...BIGTIME...I also love Uncharted. I know if it wasn't for Jak ending, then there would be no Uncharted and if Uncharted doesn't end...there'll be no next incredible franchise.

And don't say Naughty Dog is a one trick pony...because since their debut as Playstation developers...they've never made ONE bad game, all games have been stunners.

I also love the new intro for ND games...truly shows that they're animators. First a drawing, then animation flipped through on a pegbar, then the image scanned, pixelated and developed into 3D with motion once again. Brilliance. I love that new intro, it shows they really push the barriers for ingame animation and detail, hope they keep that.

VenomProject2866d ago

Good news for us addicts that can't get enough!

Rich16312866d ago

Seriously, that team over there is friggin' elite. I have an incredible amount of respect for them. That trailer...WOW...enough to make your head explode.
