The Prince of Persia trilogy has been on PSN for some time now, and European players have had the luxury of getting this on disc, as stated in EdEN’s post, for a while now. I have this ordered, and don’t know if many are aware that it is, in fact, being released in North America on 4-19-11. The titles can be purchased for $14.99 each (on PSN) or purchased on Blu-ray for $39.99. Screenshots below:
It seems that while Europe will get a proper Bluray disc release of the original Prince of Persia Trilogy in 720p and with added 3D effects, we over here have to make do with separate PSN releases of each of the games. The first game in the trilogy will actually release today once the PSN Store update is available (who knows at what time) for only $14.99. Now, the games on the Bluray disc are each supposed to have a platinum trophy and we all know that games on PSN only have a platinum when they release at an original price of $19.99 or more so it will be interesting to see what will happen once the game goes live.
The other two games in the trilogy, Warrior Within (a game some didn’t really like) and The Two Thrones (better than the second, not as good as the first), will be available as well on the PSN Store for $14.99 but we’ll have to wait for December to come around.
So, is this the right way to go or are they trying to get an extra $5 out of us? For me the Bluray disc would have been a better option because my HDD is pretty much full right now. Also, Ubisoft now has to convince people to spend $15 on the 2nd and 3rd entries of the series.
