Developer Naughty Dog’s hinted that adventurer Nathan Drake isn’t about to kick off his boots and hand in his compass any time soon, with the studio revealing it’s “not done” with the cheeky treasure hunter.
Speaking during a chinwag with Edge magazine, Naughty Dog’s Justin Richmond insisted the celebrated studio still has a heap of hurdles to overcome in regards to the series, and was most emphatic in the firm's reluctance to go back to the drawing board.
"You see it in the movies," said Richmond. "They constantly reboot things you just saw ten years ago. You're like: "Wait a minute. I just saw that!" Spider-Man is just ridiculous. It's something you have to be careful of with any kind of creative endeavour, and the lure to reinvent yourself is always there.”
"But one good thing is that we feel we're not done with Drake yet; we haven't done all we wanted to do, and there are still technical hurdles and goals we want to get over, and do even more stuff in gameplay... We're very cogniscent of the legacy of what Drake is, and that every game should advance the story and the genre."
Brash hero Nate will return for a third helping of running, gunning and wise-cracking in November’s hotly anticipated Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, which sees him teaming up with mentor Sully to unearth the legendary Iram of the Pillars.
A PSP2 spin-off has been rumored, but nothing’s been confirmed as of yet. Stay tuned.

If there is something coming out for PSP2, it better have trophy support. Does anyone know if they're gonna have trophy support on the PSP2?

Judging by how UC3 is looking so far, this is great to hear! They keep making Uncharted games with the same quality and care, and I'll keep buying 'em. ;)

i just hope it supports 1080p this time around...i'm tired of all the xbox 360 games getting 1080p support. why can't we? we have the most powerful console on the market, but we only get 720p HD? WTF?? if it's got the power, bring 1080p to one of the greatest games ever, Uncharted. Makes perfect sense. i know there are more and more games getting 1080p, but why not all of them? Microsoft does it.
