With so many HD remakes on the horizon, wouldn't one expect Final Fantasy VII to soon be named…? It's only a matter of time, I say!
Anyway, back to reality. A reader has informed us that Amazon France has two listings for the PlayStation 3 that, if accurate, are definitely worth talking about. The first is some sort of Splinter Cell trilogy for the PS3, which would presumably include the three titles from last generation: Splinter Cell , Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory . There appears to be a normal price attached to this trilogy (about $60) and perhaps surprisingly, it holds a November 2 release date (for France, at any rate). Now, PS3 owners never got the last entry in the franchise, Conviction , so maybe Ubisoft is trying to make up for that… Next is another trilogy, this one pertaining to the Prince of Persia series , which we assume would include Prince of Persia: Sands of Time , Prince of Persia: Warrior Within and Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones . In contrast to SC, PlayStation owners have yet to miss out on a PoP installment; the last, The Forgotten Sands , just recently launched in May.
So Ubisoft seems to have some PS3 love up their sleeves, although nothing is actually confirmed at this point. Personally, I really like both franchises, so…gimme.
