I hope not, I like my PoP to be fantastical... this doesn't seem to be that.

LMAO looks like the one Bioware made for Mass Effect 3's ending XD, developers don't really model child proportion well XD.

Well, why not. I enjoyed the Arabian Nights atmosphere from POP 2008 (and still hope a sequel to that) but Egypt as a setting seems good to me provided it keeps the ol' good platforming gameplay.

Doesn't seem too bad to me (considering the alpha stage it's in).
The "God of War" mention though is worrying.
Also the gritty obnoxious style could end up being too much to handle.

PoP 08 had such a refreshing art style, this is just super disappointing. Technically it looks great, but still...

By next gen all Ubisoft games will be the same game.

Ghost Recon, Splinter Cell, Prince of Persia, Assassins Creed, Beyond Good and Evil: all gritty realistic shooters taking place in the middle east.

Well, to properly model little children, you would have to study their bodies extensively, and that would probably get you at least 10 years in the clink.

Fixed.

Ughhhhh that art style. PoP 2008 looked beautiful, the GAME was the issue.

I'm willing to bet killing in motion, mark & execute, wall hacks, and ghost panthers will also be a part of this.

Assassin's Creed: Persia

Kinda fitting, since AC was originally conceived as a PoP game/spinoff.

Bottom-right corner, is that "3.09MB"?

Could that be short hand for 3,09xMB, where x is the single digit thus insignificant for testing... meaning this is memory usage? If so, that scene is using just over 3GB. And the number is in green, meaning a "safe" amount of current memory footprint.

Or it's referring to the frame buffer which actually could be 3.09MB (or could have 3.09MB left to work with in the eDRAM)... ;)

I like the realistic look of it. Can't believe the reactions, though. Is it because of how it looks from that screenshot? You can tell the pic has been super compressed.

this right here. I loved the sands of time pop trilogy. I skipped 2008 because they said gameplay to a major step back . I hope this makes it out and rectifies some of the past games short comings.

Not digging the look. I don't remember the Prince looking that bulky, and the 'God of War' bit isn't what I'd want in a new Prince of Persia. But hey, maybe it'll be cool.

Because the realistic look is a sign that the franchise is NOT moving in a direction that the fans want it to and, if the info in the other thread is correct, it will just become a bad God of War clone.

Also, Ubisoft should give up on melee combat at this point. They suck at it.

As far as I know... Jordan Mechner is working on porting The Last Express onto iOS and doing HD version of Karateka (PSN/XBLA)...

Not surprised if they reused Altair/ Ezio's mesh.

You could have showed me that and I would have thought it was something from Assassins Creed. It looks nothing like PoP.
I'll give it a chance but if this is real, its not a good first impression.
