2 Questions:

Are the PoP ever going to appear on a single Blue Ray Collection Disc at Retail?

Do they have trophies?

@spunnups

EVERY game has trophies. It has been a requirement since 2009.

And I doubt they’ll come out on a disc over here in the States. If you want the games, purchase them online. Don’t hold out on yourself.

    Correct, the game does in fact have trophies.

Great, looking forward to play it again. Also any chance you are planning a bundle of all three games on PSN?

zombie9 said:

December 14th, 6:18 am

OK, Why would I want to buy this agian?

Akimitsu782 said:

@1
ps3trophies.org has the trophies for all three Prince of Persia HD games already on their site, so yeah the game will have trophies.

I’m looking forward to buying them all, but I might be waiting for a special price/bundle first.

Warrior Within was garbage in my opinion. Sands of Time was the only good game in that trilogy that was worth my time and money. Then Ubisoft had to remind of us of how bad the rest of the games were by releasing Forgotten Sands (which wasn’t good either). *facepalm*

@zombie9

Because Sony makes too much money repackaging PS2 games to re-sell to people on PSN to -ever- provide backwards compatibility for the 40Gb, 8Gb, and slim PS3’s :-(

They are too greedy and short-sighted to realize that providing PS2 emulation on models without BC (even if it was a $20 ‘extra’ application download) would give a big boost to PS3 sales and actually encourage people to try the “HD/Trophy” versions of their favorite PS2 games.

Sony = Dumb and Dumber…..

Only on PSN? Hah. Maybe everywhere else except Europe.

I bought my disc version from NCSX.

I bought SoT and still need to beat that. I might pick this up since it’s only 15$.

AriesWarlock said:

December 14th, 6:44 am

I also wonder if a disc version will come out. Otherwise, it would be better to import the European version. It usually is the other way around when it comes to North America and Europe, so this is… strange.

I’m not buying any of these on PSN, it is a lot of hard drive space to devote to them when I *know* it’s out on Blu-Ray. I’ll wait and see if they ever release it here on disc, if not, I might import it someday. Choosing not to release them on disc is their choice, they’re losing out on sales though.

krae_man said:

December 14th, 6:59 am

These really should be cheaper. $11.99 each or all 3 for $30 would have been the sweet spot. $14.99 each and (Likely)$40 for all 3 is just too much. Nothing should be the same as retail, it’s just plain dumb and that policy needs to end.

Carl-G said:

December 14th, 7:17 am

I wish ALL PS2 games where on PSN. Oh well

Berae said:

December 14th, 7:19 am

I will get it when the 3 games will be on a bluray. I’m enjoying sly collection right now so i will wait for the disc.

Berae said:

December 14th, 7:22 am

@7 ratchet428

hmm shut your mouth dude… they would not be remastered with BC and with some more bonus like 3D or mini games they would probably be the same price or around that…..

KidCommando said:

December 14th, 7:26 am

When the three games eventually come on one disc and it is sold for $40, then I will buy it.

Caudill said:

December 14th, 7:37 am

Disc release. Make it happen and you’ve got a sale right here (along with many others I’m sure).

I just hope if the rumoured Splinter Cell collection actually comes out it doesn’t get this same treatment. Disc releases for these HD PS2 collections are the way to go.

MadmanV10 said:

December 14th, 7:39 am

Has the game-breaking glitch that happens right before the last boss, that forces you to restart the entire game, been taken out or fixed? If not, then why did you bother?

NURADEEN said:

December 14th, 7:41 am

I like the digital releases , less wear on my lens and no having to get up to put the disc in, lol, lazy me,

KongWen said:

December 14th, 7:45 am

These games are already on disc in EU for cheaper than the three PSN downloads would be. Import away, folks!

Richlando said:

December 14th, 7:45 am

This is actually one of my favorite PoP games so I’ll be picking this one up.

Mobius2525 said:

Thank god i import the Prince of Persia HD Collection Disc now i can save all that hard drive space.

BlindsideDork said:

I never finished Warrior Within…temptation. But X-Men is more important for now…

Cyb3rfr34k-iso said:

waiting for a bundle sale… 4 sure!

Forever_Blake said:

December 14th, 7:50 am

If this were available on a blu ray disc than this collection would be an instant purchase for me. Since it’s not I will either have to find a way to import it or swallow sadness. Physical media > Digital
Hopefully the physical copy will outsell the digital version of the game and Ubisoft will give this a US retail release…

NURADEEN said:

December 14th, 7:51 am

this will be in ps plus next year. i can wait,

Mobius2525 said:

December 14th, 7:57 am

@Forever_Blake try here this is where i buy my copy buy others on this blog might know a better site. It wouldn’t hurt to ask.

No disk = no sale. Come on Sony, give it a proper collection release like God Of War and Sly Cooper, then I’ll buy.

Mobius2525 said:

December 14th, 8:04 am

@ Quicky1972

It’s not Sony fault it’s Ubisoft they chose not to release this as a Disc Base collection outside Europe.

Link01 said:

December 14th, 8:06 am

you guys should really put them in a pack. Hope it will be in plus ;)

WindedHero said:

December 14th, 8:08 am

I would like to see Ubisoft’s UPlay Win integrated into these HD remakes.

Jerel said:

December 14th, 8:17 am

Europe got them on disk… I want them on a disk too. :(

zzamaro said:

December 14th, 8:18 am

We want this trilogy on a single blu-ray disc , please.

Quicky1972 said:

December 14th, 8:24 am

@Mobius2525

I guess Ubisoft thinks that this collection wouldn’t sell as well in retail..:( I’m not buying into digital distribution if I know there’s a disk version out there.

Does anybody know the cheapest place to import? If it doesn’t come stateside, I can wait for this to pop up for free on Plus…might take a while though.

Pendragonzero said:

December 14th, 8:43 am

Did you fix the glitches in this game? There was no excuse to have them there in the first place on PS2, but since they couldn’t be patched on there it was like “oh well”. Now they can be fixed! So, did you or not? You don’t give us a disc version and on top of it expect us to buy this if it still is glitchy (Assuming that it still is) Doesn’t sound very fair at all.

can somebody change the blades for this kid..like to that of kratos?

osricenpatt said:

December 14th, 8:55 am

Please, release this on a single Bluray next year. SoT, WW and TTT… Please, I don’t want to import it from UK, it would be expensive and you know this will sell well in the US!

zombie 9 said:

“OK, Why would I want to buy this agian?”

OK, maybe you have no reason to get them because you already have played them, but some of us haven’t :)

And since they aren’t releasing them on disc… because they aren’t…

LilWayneSuckz said:

Each game has a platinum trophy.

And backwards compatibility would not give you trophies, nor would it give you HD resolution. $14.99 is an incredibly reasonable price for a full retail game that was released at $49.99 many years ago

improperlyaged said:

December 14th, 8:57 am

love the games. hate the price. put them on a SINGLE blu ray disc for 29.99 like the god of war series and i will buy day 1.

ElektroDragon said:

December 14th, 8:57 am

If you import the UK Prince of Persia Collection disc like I did, it is not “only on PSN”. :) In stock at Zavvi.co.uk and only about $40 USD shipped. Works great on my US PS3.

xxnike629xx said:

December 14th, 9:26 am

So I take it that this is Sony’s solution to removing PS2 backwards compatibility?

Put out PS2 games on PSN with trophies.

>_>

In regards to the Prince of Persia games, I have a strong feeling that a disc version w/ all 3 on 1 BluRay is going to come out at $40.

Right now they’re $15 each?

$15 x 3 = $45

Basically, they’re making $5 more on all 3 games in the end and also saving money by not printing instruction booklets, stamping the game disc, etc.

But knowing Sony, they’ll eventually do a disc version.

Anyway, good to see that they’re not forgetting PS2 games.

But I’d love to see an HD Collection for:

Devil May Cry
Kingdom Hearts
Metal Gear Solid (and then release a “Sub” version for MGS4)

xxnike629xx said:

@LilWayneSuckz
“$14.99 is an incredibly reasonable price for a full retail game that was released at $49.99 many years ago”

But you do realize that $50 price was when the games came out “…many years ago…” right? The games have been given the Greatest Hits title so they’re about $20 each brand new (probably less if you look around).

And you forget that Sony could have easily done a disc version and released it for $40.

But like I mentioned….

$15 x 3 = $45.

They’re making more money in the end for something that they should have released on a disc instead of making us wait for them 1 by 1.

xxnike629xx said:

December 14th, 9:30 am

Anyway, SCEA is probably going to do a disc version, but is trying to monopolize those fans who want the game by releasing them first on PSN. And then make a disc version like the PAL region has.. (picture below)

how bout you fix the first game you put on the ps store always froze on title menu, i had to call sony and got me a refund.m

boneyardweller89 said:

December 14th, 9:37 am

I’m holding off until I know if these will all be put out on a single disk like in the UK.

letherclad said:

December 14th, 9:39 am

How about a disc release like in Europe? Instead of trying to scam us by charging more for download only versions that add up to more than the cost of a normal remastered compilation.

ghall89 said:

If this is anywhere near as buggy as Sands of Time HD I think I will pass.
