Stop me if you’ve heard this one: Ubisoft plans to release disc-based HD collections for Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia. The two sets, both of which are trilogies that fit on a lone Blu-ray disc and appear to be PS3-exclusive, will see releases later this year on March 22 for the delectable price of $39.99 each. Both of these collections have been heavily rumored for a while, thanks to various retailer listings.
The Splinter Cell HD collection, properly titled "Splinter Cell Classic Trilogy HD," includes the first three Splinter Cell games: Splinter Cell, Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow, and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory.
The Prince of Persia Collection, or the "Prince of Persia Classic Trilogy HD" as retailers will call it, will include these three titles: Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Prince of Persia: Warrior Within, and Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones.
Interestingly, both sets have been remastered to include stereoscopic 3D visuals on top of HD resolutions. Ubisoft isn’t talking about what specifically has been added to the games in regards to 3D, so I’m guessing you won’t be too blown away by the visuals come this March.
And speaking of release dates, both of these collections will see releases on PSN, too, as proper bundles at the same time as the retail PS3 releases. You can actually download the three Prince of Persia HD games now, though, as Ubisoft dropped those on the network earlier in 2010.
