Pre-Order Incentive Details For The Forgotten Sands
Ah, pre-order incentives. These days, it all depends on the retailer so you kinda need to know who's offering what.
According to Joystiq, Ubisoft has revealed the pre-order bonuses for Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, which is slated to arrive in about one month's time. The following applies to both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions: if you drop your cash at GameStop, you'll get the "Forgotten Arena" gameplay mode, which may be preferable as it adds a bit of longevity to the gameplay. But if you pre-order at Amazon, you'll get five bucks off the price plus a free Prince of Persia mobile game. Lastly, a Best Buy pre-order will net you a downloadable SandWraith character skin, which is based on the Prince's memorable transformation from Prince of Persia: Warrior Within. We're wondering if such incentives really make you put a deposit on a game, or if you only do that when you're actually in great anticipation of buying said game. Either way, publishers will continue to give you motivation to make an early purchase decision; such is the way of business.
Anyway, The Forgotten Sands is definitely on our "most wanted" list for May, especially because we rarely see a sub-par Prince effort.
