5w ago - Sony Associate Producer Victor Harris announced today that Jak and Daxter Collection goes portable on PS Vita this June.
Below are the details, as follows: In February 2012, Naughty Dog's beloved Jak and Daxter franchise got a faithful HD remake on PS3 in the form of Jak and Daxter Collection, satiating series fans and introducing newcomers to the duo.
This June, we're expanding the collection to the portable audience. Jak and Daxter Collection (comprised of three of Jak and Daxter's legendary adventures - Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak II, and Jak 3) is coming to PS Vita for just $29.99.
The power of PS Vita means Jak and Daxter Collection will feature authentically reproduced graphics from the original games. Longtime fans will instantly feel at home, and new players will experience the world of Jak and Daxter for the first time, along with new touch-based applications of certain mini games throughout the collection.
Jak and Daxter Collection on PS Vita has full Trophy support, but fear not Trophy hunters - the list isn't shared with the PS3 version, so go for the Platinum!
We've been hard at work on this addition to the Jak and Daxter lineage, and we can't wait to hear your hover board triumph stories as well as your trials and tribulations...
39w ago - Sony Blog Manager Fred Dutton goes behind the PS One / PS2 Classics today with Jak and Daxter as detailed below courtesy of the PS Blog.
To quote: When I took over the SCEE PlayStation Blog a month or two back, I promised you a few new regular features.
Today, I'm happy to unveil the first of them: Behind The Classics. Every fortnight (well, that's the plan at least), we'll be talking to the creative force behind a vintage PS One or PlayStation 2 title.
To kick things off, Naughty Dog co-founder Andy Gavin was kind enough to lend us his time to discuss the making of seminal 2001 PS2 platformer Jak & Daxter.
We've got the next few entries in the series lined up, but please feel free to leave your suggestions for future interview subjects below. Manage your expectations - these people aren't always easy to track down - but we'll do our best.
Anyway, without further ado, over to Andy...
What was the original concept for the game? Was it a deliberate attempt to create a PlayStation 2 mascot to rival Crash Bandicoot?
Andy Gavin: Of course we wanted the franchise to be as big - or bigger - than Crash. And while this didn't quite come to be, it was certainly our goal.
69w ago - Naughty Dog Co-President Evan Wells has announced today that Jak and Daxter Collection will be hitting PS3 on February 7, 2012 alongside detailing the PS3 Trophies below as follows:
The wait is almost over, Jak and Daxter fans! I'm happy to announce that Jak and Daxter Collection launches in North America on February 7th. In a few short weeks you'll be able to score the first three installments of the Jak and Daxter trilogy in one complete PS3 Blu-ray package for just $39.99.
Each game has been fully remastered to feature 720p HD visuals and stereoscopic 3D functionality, and one of the coolest new additions to the titles in Jak and Daxter Collection is the introduction of Trophy support.
When the series debuted on PS2 over 10 years ago, we didn't have Trophies. For our jump to PS3, Mass Media crafted custom Trophies for you to earn for all three titles in the collection.
The team at Mass Media has created intricate Trophies, each featuring a unique variation on a design theme based around its mission type. There are over 100 to collect including three Platinum Trophies, so you completionists will have hours of Trophy-hunting fun to look forward to.
Here's a sneak peek at some of the Trophies that will be up for grabs:

The Jak and Daxter Collection features three of our favorite Jak and Daxter titles - Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, Jak II, and Jak 3 - all remastered by Mass Media, working closely with our team at Naughty Dog.
With the launch of Jak and Daxter Collection, you'll be able to experience the adventures of Jak and his Daxter in 720p high definition with crisper visuals, smoother gameplay animation, and in full stereoscopic 3D. And, I'm sure all of you hardcore collectors will be happy to hear that each game in the trilogy features full PS3 trophy support.
The Jak and Daxter franchise set a benchmark for the platformer genre with its huge environments and gaming freedom. In fact, it holds seven world records in the Guinness...
