Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake (PS4, XO, PC --> TBA 2021)

Any following this?

I came across it and I guess was supposed to come out 3/18/21, but now delayed with no release date announced.

I have such fond memories of this game on GameCube. Never finished others, but I finished and loved this one. The footage looks great and would love to revisit.

Too bad can’t find anything more substantial on date and there’s a page, but no preorder button on MS store. Why a page and no preorder button?

From what I read they were rushing out a potential buggy remake and bumped it after all the Cyberpunk backlash. Postponed indefinitely to hopefully put out a solid remake vs. a cash grab.

Hope it’s worth the wait. Do they have the regular Xbox version or would that ruin? I would love a Prince of Persia to get into right now and this was first and best, I believe.

I played and loved them all, so I was bummed the series is kinda DOA at the moment. A remake is nice but I'd rather have a new game in the series.

I don’t know why there is no word on anything in this. Would live to play again. You can’t even play regular version on One or XBSX, right? I saw it’s on 360, but nothing for next gen.

Fuck, I guess not till 2022…

Re: Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake (PS4, XO, PC --> TBA 2021)

I just got Forgotten Sands from 360. Is this the only PoP game you can buy digitally (or even physically) in the series? I searched on MS site, but only found FS. I really want the trilogy and especially Warrior Within. Why would they have 2nd game, but not 3rd or even 1st on 360 to buy for One/XBSX, which I know eventually, if at all remake of first comes out? I saw a trilogy collection, but not available. Would love to finish with WW at least. Anyone play FS on 360? Just as fun as original? Same mechanics as SoT (which is one of my favs from Gamecube of all-time)?

How’s 2008 version? I know different story, voices and visuals and stuff and revamped. Does this have similar play mechanics? I know too easy and really can’t die and all, which seems silly to not even include a harder option. Even FS has only normal, casual and easy.

But, out of those 2, which would you play first?

Thanks for any help.

No, personally I don't recall the subtle nuances and slight differences between two near-indentical games that I last played 13 years ago. I assume others feel the same way.

How could they be nearly identical, when 2008 total revamped? FS was on Gamecube I don’t know how many years ago. Oh wait FS wasn’t on Gamecube. This came out 2 years after the 2008 revamp? I thought FS was in vein of original Sands of Time and Two Thrones and Warrior Within on GC.

But, I saw videos and could swear FS looked more like SoT and and WW. The 2008 looks like a 3D total revamp.

and what’s so wrong with bringing up an older, but pretty revered franchise and getting someone’s thoughts and which of them they liked most?

I loved Sands of Time on GC, one of the best experiences video game wise. I wanted to relive with either of these, since all I have access to and wanted opinions on which to dive into first. What’s the biggie?

Since some people can remember things as far back as 13 years ago. It has been done. Prevagen has done studies.

I guess I never did learn what an internet website full of useful information on everything entertainment was for. Sometimes you can’t teach dogs new tricks.

Those games are all so similar and from so long ago. People remember different Zelda games, but those are revered and so different.
A better comp would be Ratchet and Clank games where a new one came out every year and there were little improvements made every time and they're all great, but Up Your Arisnal vs Going Commando? I can't recall which was which. Same thing here. The games are fun and cool. But they're all pretty similar.

Ok. Fair enough. Sounds like a try em both and see which sticks. No harm in that.

Yeah, or just wait for this Remake which will be out soon enough. I will probably pick it up, but knowing Ubisoft I will wait for a half price sale which will come within two months of release.

My friend said 2008 was great and I trust his opinion. He did say 2003 was great as well, but can’t play that until this remake…But I do like a challenge and this no dying shit seems whacked and no way to even up difficulty. What game does that? Where’s the challenge? Then, I’ll try FS. I can wait for remake, but damn if SoT isn’t one of my favs of all-time. 2022 possible, but who knows. So long. Hopefully these 2 will get me by.

Yeah, I assumed (misread/mis-remembered) and thought this thread /remake was for the 2008 game. I played and loved them all to varying degrees but Decker is right, they all kind of blend together (except for 2008 since it was more uniquely 3D than its predecessors).

Ubi hit the PoP series hard with 5 games in 7 years:

Sands of Time
Warrior Within
The Two Thrones
Prince of Persia 2008
The Forgotten Sands

So to answer your initial question about Forgotten Sands. All these games tend to blend together but I do remember loving 2008 above the rest and on the flipside, Forgotten Sands was the worst of the bunch. It wasn't bad, per se, just an uninspired rehash of the previous games. If that's all you have access to and haven't played the others then it's probably a fine game.

I played the original on a PC(?). I remember it was fun running the avatar into walls. It was a great platformer. I don't see anything in the trailer that would make me want to buy a remake, even if it was available on the Switch.

Yeah, it looks more like a remaster than a remake, one in dire need of a remake.

I love the OG though so I'm sure I'll pick this up when the price is right.

Re: Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake (PS4, XO, PC --> TBA 2021)

I just remember with such fondness how much I loved SoT. I know none of the others live up, but remaster, remade, whatever, I can’t wait to experience again.

I should have left GC plugged in. Could’ve played the trilogy through Two Thrones and Warrior Within, but would have waited till 2022 or whenever it comes out to replay and enjoy.

And I do remember the voice of the Prince so fondly. I think he’s back in Forgotten Sands. I’ll get to, but I’m gonna start 2008. Really have a yearn for this franchise and play style again….

It is kind of weird that Ubisoft shelved the franchise given how many times they have gone to the well with Assassin Creed, Far Cry, Watch Dogs, etc.

So, the 2008 version, you can’t die by falling ever? What’s the point? Where’s the challenge? That doesn’t make any sense. I’m switching to Spyro.

Not sure what you mean.
1) There are lots of games where you can't die by falling.
2) I don't know of any game where the point is to die by falling.
3) A game can be challenging without your character dying from falling.

Sands of Time was about using a limited amount of sand, sometimes gaining back to reverse time to save yo self. But, that was limited, once you used up bar and didn’t gain more you dead. Every time I fall in this Elika holds out her magical hand and saves me. Many times, over and over. I don’t know about battle bc every battle has been cut short by cut scene and never finish anyone off yet.
