Splinter Cell, Prince of Persia Trilogies Gets HD Overhaul for PS3
Last generation’s Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia titles, three of each, are getting packed on a blu-ray disc for each franchise, along with an HD update.
Ubisoft just issued a press release detailing the discs — one with Splinter Cell, Pandora Tomorrow and Chaos Theory, the other with Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, Warrior Within and The Two Thrones. The new discs drop on March 22 for $39.99.
Guess what? They’re all 3D-compatible, too. Hoo-ray.
Unfortunately, the only update these games are getting is the high-def; underneath, they’re the same. Expect all the same bugs and all the inane, horrific fighting and god-awful map in Prince of Persia: Warrior Within (full disclosure: I hate that game).
The discs are going to be a bit of a steal, given that you can currently snag each of the last-gen Prince of Persia titles on the Playstation Network right now. They go for $15 each, so you’ll save a whopping $5 when you go for the physical disc.
Still, everyone should play Sands of Time, and I ran through the original Splinter Cell on Xbox not long ago — and it’s pretty much just as stellar today as it was when it was released.
