But what if the stellar franchise ever went portable…? And what if such a project had the benefit of superior handheld hardware? Well, the latest rumor is that developer Sony Bend is preparing an Uncharted iteration for the PSP2. In fact, it seems that such a game might actually be a launch title for the hotly anticipated unit (which we're all sort of assuming exists). Now, although we have no further information and we only get the "reliable source" comment – which is often decidedly un reliable – it's not out of the realm of possibility. Sony knows the "Uncharted" name has become massively huge and they could really benefit by expanding the franchise's audience. Plus, Sony Bend has already brought Insomniac's Resistance series to the PSP; you may recall Resistance: Retribution . So based on the evidence, it just might happen.
But can you imagine having an Uncharted title available for the PSP2 when it arrives? That might make a purchase a much more agreeable proposition, almost regardless of price. …almost.
