244w ago - SCEE has announced that a new Jak & Daxter game will release later this year on PSP and PS2.
Titled Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier, the game picks up from where the original trilogy left off, with Jak and furry friend Daxter teaming up with Kiera on her quest to become a Sage and save their world from the threat of darkness.
As well as the series' usual on-foot platforming, the game will also include five different aircraft allowing players to blast airborne enemies and battle sky pirates with your powerful Gunstaff - a brand-new weapon that can transform into other new weapons.
The Lost Frontier is currently being developed by High Impact Games, the team that previously developed Secret Agent Clank.
Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier releases this Autumn, and just in case you were wondering, this isn't an April Fool's joke. Check out the first screens below.

This is a PREVIEW of an exploit in the system menu that comex found that will let us run custom code on an UN MODDED WII, which means we can basically set up homebrew on a wii without Twilight Princess, or even a dvd drive. It's just a channel on an SD card.
Currently it is just set up to load the HBC but more will come soon. All of the credit goes to comex for this, I just tested it and filmed the video.

To quote: This thing must have been made by someone living in a giant mansion on a cliff in Monte Carlo.
You've got two Eurodudes jockeying for the winning position and having a Zoolander-style face-off for best male model face - it looks like they both brought the Blue Steel.
Despite the bizarreness of this trailer, which shows no actual gameplay from R.U.S.E., we're quite excited about it.
