Rumor: Uncharted 2 Seen On PSP Go

Many of the industry's biggest franchises are making their way to the PSP. This includes names like Assassin's Creed, Metal Gear Solid, and Gran Turismo. Might we be able to add Uncharted to the list...?

The latest handheld rumor is a big one: it seems a screenshot has been found that proves Uncharted 2: Among Thieves will be headed to the PSP Go later this year. A PlayStation 3 exclusive, Naughty Dog's sequel is guaranteed to be one of the hottest games of 2009, and it might make perfect logical sense to release it in a portable format. They talk about the supposed Uncharted 2 screenshot for the PSP Go over at ScrewAttack, and as you can see, they cite the recent edition of the official PlayStation magazine. The pics clearly show Uncharted 2 on the PSP Go, and that's a very big deal if it proves true. The only problem we have with this is Naughty Dog themselves: they have said in the past that they have no intention of bringing Uncharted to the PSP, and furthermore, they just recently said they didn't include split-screen co-op in the PS3 version for fear of sacrificing visual quality. ...well, porting this game to the PSP Go is the epitome of sacrificing said visual quality, right? But perhaps that's a stretch, and we're just being negative. Apparently, those shots look real enough, so we'll just have to wait and see; an official confirmation or denial shouldn't be too far off.

And if it doesn't happen, don't despair. Really, there are plenty of other great games scheduled for the PSP and PSP Go; that library will significantly increase in size and quality before 2009 is over.

I call bs on the whole thing. The picture I've seen has far too much detail to be a PSP game. Look like either a picture of Uncharted2 or a frame from the Uncharted2 trailer running on the PSP. Plus if they were really going to do an Uncharted for the PSP why not do the first one or a stand alone game.

No one is disputing that the article exists within the Magazine. I too have seen it.

just saw it last night @ walmart... although the pic's there, theres no say of the game being ported... which most likely means that the thought of it being ported is bogus, and most likely, the trailer was playing on it... nothing more, nothing less...

It's in a PSP Go! advertisement right? Chances are, this is one of the Uncharted "trailers" that will be utilized in the PSP store and can be viewed in the PSP Go! I also heard that the PSP Go! does receive signals from the TV to the PSP meaning what's on screen can be viewed on the PSP. So imagine playing Uncharted 2 on-screen then the PSP receives it like a video image. Think PSP to TV component cable just vice-versa.

I think you took the "visual" quality statement too generally. I believe he meant that he didn't want to sacrifice the game ON the PS3 as it is going to be a flagship title (possibly game of the year candidate) this year. Anyways, I'm sticking with my "video" theory on Uncharted for the PSP Go!

That's what I was thinking Ricochet. There's plenty of Uncharted 2 media out there, and I haven't checked Qore in a bit, who knows what additional Uncharted content is in there.

With the speed that ND is able to refine their current engine, and such, it wouldn't surprise me to see a PSP version...but, I doubt they'd put off Uncharted 2 for the PS3, in order to get a working engine on PSP.

If Uncharted 2 does come out on the PSP and this rumour is true, I believe that it will seriously undermine its PS3 launch.

i doubt it...

why postpone the finished product for the sake of the smaller, less important, and less graphically mind blowing version?

Everything I said in my earlier post was under the assumption that (again, if this rumour is true) they would launch on the same day.

I'm almost sure that what it is as my post above says.
It's very likely that ND just wanted to give us the option to play it that way, not sure I will use it as it will look soo much better on my HDTV.

wouldnt it be cool if in the future if they did make an Uncharted for the PSP and you could get a copy of the Uncharted Movie with a purchase of a PSP Go! like a bundle: PSP Go! Forest Green 32 GB, Uncharted PSP game, and Uncharted the movie. price $300. i would buy it.

It could be some remote play option that, may unlock something in the PS3 game.

Also it is not impossible that another company or some branch within Sony have been set to make the PSP version of the game.

There could be a different type of Uncharted title on the PSP. I'd prefer a game with a different story just like MGS: Portable ops.

This is complete BULLSHIT. I remember about 2 months ago or so where Naughty Dog came out saying that Uncharted will never go to the PSP. And I swear that Ben wrote an article talking about that. I unfortunately don't have the link. But yea...there's definitely not going to be Uncharted 2 for the PSP.

The PSP could use this game in its library, but I say fat chance. Certainly not a dumbed down version of the PS3 game anyway.

I thought that Naughty Dog had basically said 'No' to a PSP version anyway?

I am loving the fact games like Assassin's Creed, GT, GTA, etc. are making their way on PSP. It shows that Sony is really serious about bringing more games to PSP.

the irony is killing me.
they refuse to put in split screen co-op because it will "hinder the graphics"so they go and port it to the psp.
???????????????????????????????
if theres 1 game i want on psp its devil may cry.
that would be so cool.
and a new god of war and a new syphon filter.
if we got those than mayb i would FINALY have a reason to get a psp.
