Reserve the new Prince of Persia and get some bonus stuff

Reserving a copy of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands won't score you a date with Jake Gyllenhaal or even a chance to make contact with his beautiful, beautiful eyeballs, but slapping down a pre-order will, at least, net ...

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands gameplay video

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is looking really sexy, despite the Prince's mawkish cartoon face. In fact, it's looking so good that I'm convinced Ubisoft's one-button Prince of Persia from 2008 was just a sinister ma...

Prince of Persia SNES included in PoP: Forgotten Sands photo
Prince of Persia SNES included in PoP: Forgotten Sands
by Jordan Devore

As revealed at Nintendo's mysterious San Fran event in a dark room somewhere, the Wii version of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands -- which is completely different than the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 versions -- will include a nice freebie: Prince of Persia SNES on the disc.

We were also told it'll sport 2-person cooperative play, but honestly, free 16-bit skeletons is what I'm most concerned about today. From what I remember, the SNES remake of the original PoP was a lovely little game.

Good news for anyone thinking of getting this new Wii game, that's for sure.
