How Come We've Heard Next To Nothing About This Game??

#1 Edited by ververdan0226 (1573 posts) -

Isn't it still coming out in December of this year or something like that? Are they hiding it because it's no good? It's from the developers of Size Matters and Secret Agent Clank, which were both pretty good, Size Matters a little more, so I can't imagine it'd be that terrible. What do you guys think is going on with it? I'm intrigued by a new Jak game, but when it comes down to it, this is a spinoff and I don't think I've seen nearly any impressions on the quality of the final product from any outlets...

Handheld games don't get a lot of press coverage on GB until they show up as QLs...unless you're a Persona game.

I just dont think that theyd get the hype train going this early for a PSP game is all

@Pie: Fair point, but even for being on a handheld it's really gotten no coverage. I don't even know anything about the story whatsoever...

 I'm definitely a fan of the series.....but, i don't know how I feel about this one so far.  I would like to see a revamped  version on the ps3, but what kind of new hooks could they add?  I mean you could give the player the ability to aim with the guns (essentially making it part 3rd person shooter) and maybe add a cover system, but then we just start seeing "Uncharted: Jak's Fortune"...I don't know what to think.

I think we haven't heard much about mainly because of two reason. First, there just isn't a lot of coverage around it. And second, they chose a awful time to release it. I'm interested in getting it (maybe for the PS2 instead of the PSP), but come on! It's the same period in which I'll be getting Dragon Age and Modern Warfare 2... I just don't have enough money to spare on Jak and Daxter. Plus, if I get anything on the PSP this month, it'll definitely be Kenka Bancho.
 
I think bad timing will make it go by without notice.

If it was being developed by Naughty Dog I'd probably be a lot more interested, I dont think High Impact Games' PS2 port of Size Matters was great, but ill probably pick it up at some stage. Pretty cheap too, only €23!

This, seriously, frankly I'm sick of it, get somebody to review handheld games! Maybe Jeff, since he just got a PSP Go.
