Splinter Cell, Prince Of Persia HD Remakes For PS3?
With so many HD remakes on the horizon, wouldn't one expect Final Fantasy VII to soon be named...? It's only a matter of time, I say!
Anyway, back to reality. A reader has informed us that Amazon France has two listings for the PlayStation 3 that, if accurate, are definitely worth talking about. The first is some sort of Splinter Cell trilogy for the PS3, which would presumably include the three titles from last generation: Splinter Cell, Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory. There appears to be a normal price attached to this trilogy (about $60) and perhaps surprisingly, it holds a November 2 release date (for France, at any rate). Now, PS3 owners never got the last entry in the franchise, Conviction, so maybe Ubisoft is trying to make up for that... Next is another trilogy, this one pertaining to the Prince of Persia series, which we assume would include Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, Prince of Persia: Warrior Within and Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones. In contrast to SC, PlayStation owners have yet to miss out on a PoP installment; the last, The Forgotten Sands, just recently launched in May.
So Ubisoft seems to have some PS3 love up their sleeves, although nothing is actually confirmed at this point. Personally, I really like both franchises, so...gimme.
