It appears as if the Prince of Persia HD trilogy Collection won't see a physical release in North America, but that doesn't mean North Americans won't be able to get their hands on the HD re-mastered titles at all. Ubisoft has revealed that three games in the packaged will be released separately on PSN in North America. Keep those wallets handy, eh?
The collection was first spotted as a European-exclusive set that combined Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones, and Prince of Persia: The Warrior Within on a single Blu-ray. Like the God of War Collection before it, and even more similar to the Sly Collection, the Prince of Persia Collection features 720p HD visuals and 3D support.
The PlayStation blog has some neat details about these titles. The Sands of Time is available now over PSN for $14.99. The other two titles in the collection will debut at some point in December at the same price.
And just as a minor note: in the Ubisoft conference call, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot mentioned, according to Kotaku, that the rumored Splinter Cell HD trilogy is indeed a real package. It's unknown if that collection will be also be released as a PSN exclusive in North America.
