Prince of Persia: DLC Trailer

Prince of Persia: DLC Trailer

Ubisoft released 2 new images but more importantly a first trailer of the upcoming downloadable content of Prince of Persia. It's only in French for the moment, but I'll update the news as soon as I get it in English.

surely this is free...looks like the same old though... its amazing how little variation in the gameplay the game has...its quite baffling considering how fantastic the art/graphics are

Ubisoft announced this DLC over a month ago. It is due out this week on the 26th, and they still have yet to set a price for it.

They may charge for this, but considering it is due out in a few days, and still no price has been announced, maybe not.

And even more importantly, since PoP did not have a proper ending (they ended the game on a cliffhanger, and not even a good one, for those not in the know), they better not charge for this. People paid $60 for a full game, only to not get a proper ending, so Ubisoft better not start the nickel & diming people to death.

On the one hand, I could see a publisher getting greedy like that, Activision, EA and THQ talked about doing just this with all their games, at the start of this generation. However, on the other hand, Prince of Persia probably, simply was not finished when the game shipped last December (which is why it shipped so late in the year in the first place). So the devs completed the bit they had, and shipped it to make the fiscal quarter, with the plan all along to finally complete the entire game, and give it away free via DLC.

Or, it could just be Ubisoft "experimenting" in an inventive way to cut down on pre-owned sales by giving out only part of the game on the disc, and save the ending exclusively for DLC. That too has been talked about a lot this past year by almost all of the top publishers.

We will have to wait and see to know for sure.

About the game


What's up?

    KORNdog @alimokrane: just get the samsung we keep recommending. it's honestly the best bang for buck you can get. you can get better sets, but you will pay the price. and it seem your budget isnt very high. (7 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @KORNdog: It's so confusing man.. I have been slaving for a week for a decent 4kt TV and I keep hitting all these little things and it's annoying lol. (17 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog that's all i really understand of it. seems HDR10 is what most TV's have though, so you're probably safe with that. (59 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog a dolby featured one can still do HDR10. but it doesnt work the other way around. also dolby's goes up to 4000nits (arguably future proof but no TV supports it yet) and HDR10 goes up to 1000 nits. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: it's basically just a "brand" of HDR, HDR10 is pretty much the standard right now, and i think dolby do one too? (1 Hour ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane There are version of HDR? I can see some TVs have HDR 10 listed... what does that mean? (1 Hour ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @KORNdog: Sadly I have to agree. This was a big let down for me.... I like FF13 better, there I said it! (2 Hours ago)
