Ubisoft Announces Splinter Cell HD Collection for Retail; Prince of Persia HD Hitting Stores in NA

By Steve Watts, Jan 31, 2011 2:00pm PST With the Prince of Persia HD collection available on PlayStation Network and as a boxed product in Europe, rumors have circulated that another of Ubisoft's big name franchises, Splinter Cell, would see its own remastered trilogy.

Today, Ubisoft made it official by announcing that Prince of Persia HD would arrive stateside at retail and an HD collection of the PS2 Splinter Cell trilogy would arrive alongside it. Both collections will come to stores on March 22, 2011 for $39.99 each, and include remastered HD graphics and stereoscopic 3D.

Each will feature three games. The Prince of Persia Classic Trilogy HD will be composed of The Sands of Time, Warrior Within, and The Two Thrones. Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Classic Trilogy HD includes Splinter Cell, Pandora Tomorrow, and Chaos Theory.

If you just can't wait until March and don't mind five dollars paying more, the Prince of Persia games are already remastered and for sale individually on the PlayStation Network, for $14.99 each.

  • I know it's getting me to buy these games twice but damnit, this is a good model.

    God of War, Sly Cooper, Ico/Shadow, and now these two...

    There's a lot of good sets of games from the PS2's vast library that scream for such updates. I'd love to see both Jak & Daxter and Ratchet & Clank updates (yes, I don't expect as great looking as R&C Future, but the gameplay in Up your Arsenal is still very very solid for example), FFX, -2, and XII could make another set, both .hack series, Metal Gear Solid, etc.

    Unless, of course, Sony gets off their ass and release that patented idea of a PS2 extender for the PS3. As long as I can dump my saves to the HD, I'd be thrilled.
