According to online reports citing an inadvertently mailed version of publisher Bethesda's forthcoming game release list, the company is planning to debut PlayStation 3 and PSP versions of its hit Xbox 360 and PC title Oblivion before the end of 2006.

The unconfirmed but authentic-looking release list, which also shows already announced titles including Star Trek - Battlestations for PlayStation 2 and Star Trek - Legacy for the Xbox 360, has The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion SKUs for both PlayStation 3 (as a launch title) and PSP penciled in for a November 2006 debut.

The long in development Oblivion has already been released for Xbox 360 and PC, where it has broken records, becoming the fastest selling game released on the Xbox 360, reaching third spot on the all-formats game list. In addition, market research firm NPD Group reported Oblivion for the PC was the best selling PC game for March 2006, while the Oblivion Collectors Edition is ranked number 2.

The game has also been critically acclaimed since its launch, with review aggregation service GameTab ranking it as an average 94% rated title, according to multiple video game review sites, explaining why Bethesda may want to push on with new SKUs relatively swiftly. However, the company has not yet made an official announcement of these titles, and it is unclear whether the PSP SKU, if existing, might be a side-story or simply a conversion of the existing game.
