Ready at Dawn finished with PSP

End of era for God of War, Daxter team.

God of War: Chains of Olympus creator Ready at Dawn has officially finished working with the PSP.

The developer, also responsible for Daxter on the handheld, has already packed up its tools and sent them back to Sony.

"With Chains of Olympus going gold in Japan, we're now officially done with PSP development," said Ready at Dawn on its blog, much like a choir talking in a homogenised voice.

"Today we sent all out devkits back and seeing all these boxes ready to be picked up definitely marks the end of an era here at Ready at Dawn."

Ready at Dawn first mentioned it wouldn't be making any more games for PSP back in March. And it's a shame, as God of War is the highest-rated game for the format on Metacritic, and Daxter has gone on to sell over two million copies.

The developer was also the driving force behind the Wii conversion of Okami, which fetched a 10/10 on Eurogamer just as its PS2 predecessor had a year before.

Ready at Dawn is yet to talk about what lies ahead, but optimistically reveals it, "Can't wait to show you guys what we have in store..."

It marks another blow for the PSP, after Ubisoft UK boss Rob Cooper said the handheld lacked direction, and Sony Europe boss David Reeves admitted it needed more games.
