Even so, I don't think the game is selling that well. The 360 and PS3 version are now only $39.99 at gamestop. Didn't the game just come out a month ago? Glad I didn't get it the first day it came out. I'll probably pick it up now though.

I don't know, Gamespot is offering quite a few other new released for $40 as well... I think it's a bad economy + Christmas thing.

I kind of hope PoP is selling less than expected though, simply because it's waaaaay too simplified, and I would like Ubisoft to see that does not mean more sales.

Interesting game, but I can't stand games where I get stuck every 15min and have to dig through guides to try and figure out what to do, I don't have time.
man..how can you get stuck in this game...

Still enjoying the game, every dialog between the prince and Elika, very funny sometimes. Killed 3/4 bosses, the game is a perfect refresh for the series. It's wonderful to play, so smooth, environments are so beauty. Fights could have some variation, and are quite easy once you learn how to block and counter attack.

However the game is soooo easy, very oriented to casual players. I miss how much harder was PoP Warrior Within (even harder to get the alternate ending, to kill Dahaka and save the girl), fights were more intense and rewarding.

But anyway this new game is a great experience, for me it's the first action game oriented to casual players that isn't a deception for more hardcore gamers

Still haven't bought the PC version. I tried 2x already from Toys R' Us and CD Universe, since they were $30. But each one of them cancelled the order cause they said the product is "Discontinued".

I like it, yes it's easy because you can't die, but honestly if you did die it would be pretty hard, number of times I've died so far. I think Elika is a great sidekick character, prince is pretty decently cheesy. Visuals are great, animation is solid. I'm very happy with it.

Nope definitely wasn't the old one, unless both companies used the new box for the old PoP game. I think they both use the same distributor cause every place that had it for $30 doesn't have the game listed anymore (like walmart).
