Prince of Persia Trilogy: 9 minutes of HD footage to give your eyes a sexy massage

I'll keep this brief, because you've got quite a bit of video to get through. And you'll want to get through all of it. The first footage of Ubisoft's upcoming Prince of Persia Trilogy HD collection has landed, and it's exactly as pretty as we've all hoped (aside from some slightly crappy pre-rendered cut-scenes, but that's to be expected when there's upscaling afoot).

The footage we have so far shows nine minutes of the remastered HD version of The Sands of Time, already the cleanest, brightest and most colourful of the original trilogy. In HD? It looks rather wonderful. Slightly unstable frame-rate, but given that we don't know how old this build is, let's give it the benefit of the doubt, shall we?

Just a (sad) reminder though. This is only being released in Europe, so American PS3 owners, start finding importers now. 360 owners worldwide, well, you guys just start thinking about your happy place, and be strong. The PoP Trilogy set is currently still PS3 exclusive.

Why, Ubisoft, why!?

    I'd point out that these games are all on pc and supported HD on that platform

    Looks awesome, but why do developers always insist on having a completely inept wanker be the one who plays for the demo video? (See also: Sonic 4 minecart level)

    It looks exactly like the pc version. @ Noob Everybody gets Beyond Good and Evil, cept pc users but there again, our version will probably look just as good as the HD remake anyway.

    well the xbox 360 crowd gets beyond good and evil right?

    Hmm, looks pretty well the same as when I last played it, but that could be from looking through my rosy nostalgia shades. I was really looking forward to it, because I've only played Sands of Time, but now I see that it's EU only, and for PS3. The double whammy of disappointment.

    i.e. PC version w/ trophies.

    Why don't I own a PS3 anymore?! WHY?

    Eh? Why does a person with petrified baby dicks for fingers play this? Anyway, it looks exactly the same as I remember it...I originally played it on PC, so I'm definitely going to buy the HD trilogy =)

    I look forward to Zero Punctuations Review :D Also GR did you bemoan the 360 only Splinter Cell game not being on PS3? Just Asking.

    Oh wow awesome :D I was hoping they would make HD version of the original trilogy.
