We already know that Ubisoft is bringing HD remakes of classic Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia games to the PS3 (it's already started with PoP), but thanks to some new information from the ESRB website, it looks like the same games may be making their way to the Xbox 360 as well.
The following titles are now listed on esrb.org (opens in new tab) for the Xbox 360:
- Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones HD
- Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time HD
- Prince of Persia: The Warrior Within HD
- Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell HD
- Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory HD
- Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow HD
The games do not have rating summaries, which means Ubisoft has submitted them as having identical content (as relevant to their ratings) to the original titles. Ubisoft has not officially announced any of these titles for the 360, but the ESRB has leaked information like this in the past, so it'd be a safe bet that Ubisoft is at least considering 360 releases.
The Prince of Persia and Splinter Cell remakes will be available on the PS3 March 22 as download packs and in retail stores (one Blu-ray disc per collection) for $39.99 each. We'll let you know if Ubisoft officially decides to release 360 versions.
