Further to the rumour about AvP2 being on the PSP, the news was featured in PSP: The Official Guide Book. Somebody sent PlanetAvP what was in there:
“Although officially top secret, we’ve learned that Vivendi – publishers of past Aliens vs. Predator titles – is creating Aliens vs. Predator for PSP. The game will tie in with 20th Century Fox’s upcoming sequel, which is expected to hit cinemas in January. The story sees those naughty aliens and predators rocking up a small isolated town and making life difficult for the locals. It’s a small, modern day town – Colorado, in fact – which may cause a few timeline problems for Aliens fans. We’re looking forward to seeing how this is explained and to incinerating screeching acid-blooded xenomorphs in the rural US with impunity. More details next issue.”
“Cause a few timeline problems for Aliens fans” – that’s an understatement. I can’t see them pulling this game off, to be honest. AvP2’s general story is hardly great to begin with so who knows what the game will turn out like. I wish Vivendi would get their act together and make an AvP3 FPS instead. Does anybody get this PSP Official Guide Book? If so, scan the AvP2-related articles that are featured in there in the coming months.
