Hopefully we'll see a portable gaming console with one of these screens someday soon!

Hi all, my name is Ben Mattes and I'm the producer for Ubisoft's Prince of Persia video game.

We're just about a week from the launch of Prince of Persia and all of us on the team are anxiously awaiting player feedback, monitoring all of the message boards and blogs we know of - we stay on top of the thoughts and questions going through the minds of the fans.





To that end we wanted to extend a special invitation to all of you readers here at the PlayStation.Blog. We know there might be things about the game you are interested in knowing more about or having explained in more detail, and we're going to give you the chance to have those questions answered direct from the development team.

Any subject is open for discussion but of course we may not have the time to answer them all. Questions about Elika? The art style? Lessons learned during production?
