Oblivion Coming To PS3 And PSP (UPDATE)
UPDATE: According to recent information just announced today, Oblivion will be available for the PS3's launch (November 17)!
According to sources, an upcoming feature cover story in the next Official PlayStation Magazine has some big news.
One of the most impressive gaming achievements of the year, Bethesda Softworks' The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, is reported to be headed to the PS3 and PSP. Supposedly, the PS3 version will feature some all-new content unavailable in the PC and Xbox 360 versions. Among these additions is the inclusion of the Knights of the Nine, a new faction that gives players another option (the game currently features The Dark Brotherhood and The Fighters Guild). Expect the PS3 version to also boast new weapons, armor, items, characters, and even locations.
In regards to the PSP version, it appears Oblivion won't be a direct port, as one might expect. In fact, the game is rumored to be called The Elder Scrolls Travels: Oblivion, and will take place in a completely different environment. No further details were immediately available.
Rumors for both the PS3 and PSP versions began circulating back in April, and then sparked again in July when a product listing for a PS3 Oblivion popped up at GameStop. There are no official release dates or any other confirmed information at this time, but be on the lookout for that PSM article.
