Oblivion for PSP Canceled?

oblivionlogo1.jpgAccording to the Bethesda Forums, the anticipated PSP version of Elder Scrolls Travels: Oblivion has been delayed, maybe indefinitely. Apparently, the developer the game was outsourced to ran into a number of problems that may have been the game’s undoing:

“If the rumors are true, Bethesda Softworks has cancelled The Elder Scrolls Travels: Oblivion for the PSP. The title had been outsourced to Climax, which apparently ran into too many problems building the portable RPG spinoff. The game may only be on ice, but either way don’t expect to see it anytime soon – if ever…”

Thinking about it now, cramming a massive game like Oblivion into a portable device doesn’t sound like an easy task. Guess we’ll have to wait and see how this all turns out. Either way, you might want to get your pre-order deposit back just to be on the safe side.

I didn’t even know they were going to do that. I’m extremely disappointed at this rumor.

funnily enough i don’t think oblivion should have been on 360 either, it ran like crap and glitched all over the place on that hardware.

@Shock2k7

the only real reason to get a PSP is to mod it.

Oh come on, I KNEW this was fake from the beginning. If they didn’t want to touch the Nintendo Wii, why would they try to get the game on a PORTABLE?

Yeah, it doesn’t seem likely to me either, but I still think that they shouldn’t lie. :(

No they canceled this game, all the good stuff goes to Nintendo. I think i be selling my psp & buy a nds. This game will come out on Nintendo & so many good games are suffering because they go to Nintendo. Maybe its Nintendo time to shine, they are doing so well

i reckon i woulda been excellent on the PSP, and whoever said oblivion shouldn’t have been on 360 is full of crap, that game ran perfectly for me.

The PSP is indeed mostly lame when it comes to PSP games. Mod it though, and you can have 20 years of classic gaming in your back pocket…call that lame why dontcha?
