Ready At Dawn: 'Maybe We Should Reconsider' Stopping PSP Development

Irvine, California-based Ready at Dawn found success developing for the PSP with titles like Daxter and God of War: Chains of Olympus -- then announced earlier this year that it would quit developing for the platform. But could the studio be reconsidering its strategy?

Gamasutra's most recent 'Saling the World' column, which covers the top five sellers for every available platform in the United States, Japan, and Europe, recently showed that 2 out of 5 Amazon top-sellers on the PSP were Ready at Dawn titles, and taking note of the data may have prompted the developer to think about its decision, announced in June, to quit PSP development.

"Maybe we should reconsider this whole ‘no more PSP games’ thing because we seem to be doing pretty good at it," wrote the developer at its official site.

Ready at Dawn, formed by a number of former Naughty Dog and Blizzard Entertainment employees, has in the past staunchly supported the PSP, even going so far as to criticize the technical efforts of other PSP developers. In fact, the only title it's done on another platform has been the Wii version of Okami.

The studio never provided reasons for exiting PSP development, and only noted at the time that there would be no PlayStation 2 ports of its titles, as is often done with prominent Western exclusives on the platform.
