Really wished those were pushed further (not necessarily PoP 2008 v2 but the same conceptual ideas) rather than be ignored and treated like an error.

PoP 2008 to PoP_ZERO_2 shows a total lack of consitency of what the franchise means and gives me no faith in what Ubisoft will want to sell me.

I'm always down for more Prince of Persia, but this looks strikingly like Assassin's Creed, which is exactly what Prince of Persia shouldn't be.

I loved Prince of Persia 3D on PC back then, sure it has aged badly (and wasn't that hot with critics) but there were some awesome locales. IIRC there was even a city or palace in the sky. The 1 on 1 combat mechanics were interesting with their right-left-center attacks, I would love to see a remake of this game with an improved take on the combat and movement.

Update: According to Jordan Mechner that this is not a new PoP Game:

So could this be the new IP that Ubi is working on ie. Shadow of the Colossus meets God of War in a Egyptian setting...



But why the POP Zero 2? Meaning that is reboot.

It's still weird to me that after PoP Classic, there never was a PoP2 Classic release. (Not that the original game needs a HD mastering in order to make it loveable, the original is still clearly gorgeous.) I was under the impression that the HD remake did pretty well?

Like Zapages said, it would also be incredible also if somebody actually went back to PoP 3D and redid it ala Tomb Raider Anniversary. The Dreamcast version of the game is supposedly much better but still suffers from a horrible camera, if they took those original levels and put them under a more modern camera implementation it could be worth playing.

The HD remake on PSN/XBLA of the first game is pretty crappy. I'd take a re-imagined PoP2 though.

To put some ammo to this rumor again: The original voice actor from Prince of Persia Warrior Within is back at Ubisoft Montreal: http://twitter.com/Robin_A_Downes/st...281984/photo/1

I don't know what this could mean. He could be doing some voice work for this game or it could be working on something else. Let the speculations begin?

It's a beautiful game. Gameplay isn't engaging but at least give it time to show you a couple of locations.

Also, that Ico ending (original one, not extended dlc one)

If the budget is anything above an one-A title, don't count on the gameplay being any more deeper and open than PoP 2008.

I just couldn't, heck I remember the game looking much better than it did on my screen and I was running it at 3800x2100 resolution and even then it looked weird.

Sadly I've had the ending spoiled to me so many times in different threads and podcasts that there's nothing to be had there.

You know, I've lately come to realize ( not that it's a unique revelation ) that you can apply that to almost any new big budget game because my GOD AAA-games have such subpar gameplay depth generally. I mean it's not even fun anymore, I'm not even an "indie" gamer but lately I've been 10x more attracted to games like FTL or the like than I've been to Far Cry 3, Ass creed 3, zzZZZzz 3 etc. It's bloody sad.
