According to a recent discussion with Joystiq.com, Naughty Dog’s very own, Evan Wells, touched on the subject of bringing Nathan Drake to the pocket handheld PlayStation Portable. Due to the recent slew of Game of the Year awards, this may be a great addition to a handheld platform library that many have criticized as poor.
“I think it would be fantastic to see the game (move) onto a handheld system,” Wells told us. “Each one of the episodes is sort of like a standalone thing and I think we could do that pretty easily. If we can find a partner to work with, I’d love to do that … we definitely wouldn’t do it ourselves. We’re trying to just focus on the PS3 technology and platform right now.” He added, laughing, “But, if we can’t find a partner, then maybe we’re going to have to find a budget ourselves.”
As a personal owner of the PlayStation Portable, I embrace this idea with open arms. After all, you can never get enough of Drake or his pals.
