285w ago - You may or may not be aware that there's a vote taking place on the official Prince of Persia Web site. This poll allows people to pick one of three Xbox 360 achievements for the final game.
Not much use to PS3 owners, but Ubisoft has done its best to keep us sweet. The poll itself states that PS3 fans need not take umbrage and that they have "planned something special" for us too.
Whether this will have anything to do with the upcoming trophies for the game, or something else entirely, there's no real indication.
Needless to say, however, we're looking forward to seeing whatever it is Ubisoft comes up with. What can we say, we love surprises!
290w ago - Ubisoft has debunked rumors that the new Prince of Persia game will be called Heir Apparent, stating that no name has officially been announced.

Despite this, the new Prince of Persia game is still on track for a release sometime this winter. Based on this preview of the art direction, we can't wait.
