Of course we don't want to thrash the Spaniards here at Pocket Gamer. Why, we love the country of steel and tapas. That strapline is a tenuous link to a rumour that PS3 acrobatic adventure game Uncharted could be coming to the PSP.

The game stars Nathan Drake, a descendent of Sir Francis Drake, who sets off on a quest to uncover the lost treasure of El Dorado. The game plays much along the lines of Tomb Raider, or The Prince of Persia, with cunning, dexterous physical puzzles solved by the use of dangerous free-climbing and acrobatics.

Co-president of developer Naughty Dog, Evan Wells, tells CVG that a PSP version isn't out of the question, and that the company is keen to take a look at a portable adaptation.

"We'd love to see Uncharted grow beyond the PS3," says Wells. "It would be interesting to see what sort of changes to the design one would make for a portable system."

Renewed interest in the PSP is undoubtedly turning the heads of big name PlayStation programmers everywhere, especially as the industry currently needs to capitalise on its IPs as much as possible in these dark economic times.

"Right now Naughty Dog is purely focused on PS3 development so we can't promise anything from us in the near future," Wells concludes.

Still, it's good to know the PSP is on the Uncharted developer's map. See what I did there? You can have that one for free.
