News: Two of Ubisoft's flagship franchises may be repackaged in HD.
Remastered collections are all the rage these days, with the highly successful God of War Collection, upcoming The Sly Collection and long-rumored Team ICO Collection being on own our must-own lists. That's why we're not surprised to see that Ubisoft may be getting in on the repackaging bandwagon.
Amazon France added to its database Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Trilogy and Prince of Persia Trilogy, both for PS3. This remains a rumor for three reasons: The product pages contain no other proof, the words ?cell? and ?of persia? aren't capitalized and the word trilogy is spelled ?trilogie? in one case and ?trilogy? in another. All are signs of haphazard and possibly error-prone data entry.
That being said, the existence of games is often leaked through retail stores like Amazon and the French version of the online store might have a leg up on such an Ubisoft announcement because the publisher is headquartered in that country. If we had to guess, we'd expect Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell (2002) Pandora Tomorrow (2004) and Chaos Theory (2006) to make up the Splinter Cell Collection. The Prince of Persia Collection would most likely comprise of The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2003), Warrior Within (2004) and Two Thrones (2005). All are last-gen PS2 products and would look wonderful bundled together and remastered in HD. Gaming Target will have more news as soon as Ubisoft divulges the details.
UPDATE: Amazon France has removed the listing for Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Trilogy. The Prince of Persia Trilogy listing remains, for now.
