I read that Force Unleashed II has been scrapped for the PSP. No surprises there, but Lego: Clone Wars is still showing PSP as one of the formats.
I bet PSP screenshots and videos of this game will be as rare as chicken lips. LA and Tt won't want anyone to see the poor DS port so they'll push the Xbox and PS3 screenshots and videos as the only ones available.
Don't buy Lego: Clone Wars on PSP until you've checked out the 3rd party websites for reviews, screenshots and gameplay videos. I'm going to play it safe and only buy the PS3 version. I sincerely hope they return to the quality format The Original Trilogy had on the PSP.
One thing I realized is that Lucasart spends all their time on a million PSP exclusives, yet don't even create good versions of their popular games for the PSP.
Lucasarts now treats the PSP as if it can only have crappy ports or exclusives that everyone wants on the consoles.
But the PSP has a small auidence, and those who own one and are interested with LEGO Star Wars will probably buy it on their home consoles. I would like them to make a good PSP port, but I guess it just isn't profitable.
Anyone who is a fan of the LEGO games knows how brilliant the Star Wars, Batman and Indiana Jones versions were. Of course they were created from the code written for the Playstation 2, and why not if you can?
However, now that the PS2 platform is winding down, something disturbing is happening. Rather than continuing to code for the PSP and PSP Go, their games are becoming poor quality Nintendo DS emulations. Just take a look at the dismal LEGO: Harry Potter on the PSP and you'll see what I mean.
I emplore Lucasarts to not let this happen to Star Wars!
If LEGO: Clone Wars becomes a text adventure or Force Unleashed II becomes an isometric platform game not worthy of the iPhone, it'll be a sad day for portable gaming and possibly the beginning of the end for the PSP.
