I don’t know what it is about the Prince of Persia series. I think I’ve always liked them more as a concept and via watching the cool trailers than actually playing. Eventually, all the wall running and jumping along with the bad camera angles gets a bit tiring after awhile.  The Sands of Time remain the high watermark of the series, last year’s game was just ridiculous, they took away most of the combat and you every time you missed a jump your partner was there to save you. That I didn’t mind as much because I hate starting over a lot.

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands takes the game back to its roots, the combat has returned and you actually have to make all your jumps now.  The story takes places sometime after the Sands of Time but before last year’s game.  It’s an odd duck, because it’s not a tie in to the movie, just timed to release along side it, but there are some elements early on, like adding a back story to the Prince and the inclusion of his brother into the story.  His brother foolishly unleashes an Army whose goal is to topple their Kingdom and rule the world.

Post image for XBox 360 Brings Sexy Back

During yesterday’s E3 Press Conference, Microsoft unveiled their brand new XBox 360. It’s black, smaller, has touch controls, 250 GB Hard Drive, built in WiFi and is supposed to be whisper quiet all for the low price of $299. If you already have an Xbox 360 you’ll need to get the transfer cable for $20 to transfer all your data. The new 360 is replacing all current models and is available now – although, it hasn’t shown up on Amazon.com yet.  It’s an odd looking machine and still lacks Blu-ray playback, but this is a really nice design upgrade. Especially considering it addresses two common complaints – the noise and the $100 fee people had to pay for the WiFi accessory.  Also announced at the Microsoft Press Conference – Project Natal is now officially called Kinect. Kinect’s unique sensor and specially designed games transform full body movement into game play. I’m sorry but the entire concept of this device is just dumb.  ESPN is coming to Xbox Live in the form of a brand new subscription channel. New games include Gears of War 3, Halo Reach and Fables III. The press conference ended with MS giving everyone in the room a brand new Xbox 360! Why is it stuff like this never happens when I attend press conferences? I really want this machine, but I finally replaced my launch Xbox last November (no red ring) and just got a 250 GB HD last month, so I can’t justify a purchase.
