Uncharted, others to be PSP Pinball Heroes

ESRB rates handheld spin-offs of Sony first-party properties, including Hot Shots Golf, Pain, High Velocity Bowling.

40 Comments

Nathan Drake is heading into Uncharted territory once again, if a new entry in the Entertainment Software Rating Board database is correct. In fact, Drake is apparently bringing some of his fellow Sony first-party properties with him, as the ESRB has rated four separate PSP Pinball Heroes titles based on Uncharted, High Velocity Bowling, Pain, and Hot Shots Golf.

OK, who had pinball in the office pool for the first Uncharted spin-off?

According to the listings, each game will be designed around the artwork and themes of its counterpart. For example, the Uncharted pinball game is based around 2007's Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and has players flipping a ball around a plane wreck, into silhouetted enemy targets, and off bumpers shaped like gold coins. Meanwhile, Hot Shots Golf has players aim for a miniature putting green, while High Velocity Bowling lets players try to knock down pins.

The ESRB listing makes no mention as to whether the games are downloadable-only or part of the PSP Mini line of games. All four titles are rated E for Everyone. As of press time, a Sony representative had not returned GameSpot's request for confirmation of the games.

Pinball game sure is fun. But seriously, I'll be really mad if that Pinball Heroes consists of 4 separated pieces and that the skins to play are only a few. They should add more games to include in that pinball skins for example Patapon, LocoRoco, KZ, Resistance, Sly, Jak&Daxter, R&C, inFamous, VC. 4 games? U've gotta be kidding me!!!! :(

Really? Not many Uncharted fans will be buying this, if any at all in my opinion. Little kids game indeed.

I think I'll stick with Williams pinball hall of fame or metroid pinball. The only thing that will make me get this game is if I get David Hasselhoff from Pain and get to use him as a pinball.

These will probably be Minis. I don't see these being big enough for retail release at all, but they could work as Minis. Nothing I'm likely to get either way, though (don't care much for Pinball).

They should just combine them into one game. I mean, c'mon. I don't think each one will be on the same level as, say, Pokemon Pinball.

Could probably flip the psp vertically and play pinball like that. That would seem to fix the screen size problem.

A widescreen portable system seems like the wrong platform for a pinball game, IMO. There's either going to be a lot of vertical scrolling involved or a lot of wasted edge space. Either one seems lame to me, but I guess I'll wait and see.

I hope the file size is small cause I only have around 70MB left on my 1 GB card. Man, it may be time to get rid of that 500+ MB install for Dissidia.

Didn't see this one coming... Also, typo in the second paragraph. Should say "plane" wreck not "plan" wreck.
