Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion on PSP and PS3
PSP owners around the world hail Bethesda
Modojo has received word that video game developer Bethesda will be releasing a version of its recent Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion RPG title on Sony's next generation console, the PlayStation 3. Not necessarily a surprising move, however the porting doesn't appear to stop there as a PSP version is apparently also in development.
An odd move to say the least, but the Elder Scrolls have seen a portable iteration once before, available on Nokia's N-Gage, so a move to the PSP would certainly be possible.
Both titles are slated with a tentative November 2006 release date, which would imply that the PS3 version could be a launch title.
In other news, a new Star Trek game, titled Tactical Assault, has also been unofficially confirmed to be in development by Bethesda. Available on both the PSP and Nintendo DS, the title currently sports an October 2006 release.
Stay tuned to Modojo for the full report on Bethesda's line-up as E3 rolls around in a few short weeks.
