Ubisoft offering Altair skin for Prince of Persia

The latest Prince of Persia has an interestingly close relationship with Assassin's Creed - both games are developed by Ubisoft's Montreal studio, both are powered by the same Scimitar engine, and both feature astonishingly acrobatic protagonists. Ubisoft has made the comparison even harder to ignore by unveiling an Assassin's Creed-themed character skin for the Prince's current generation debut.
The new skin, which reclothes our favourite Persian monarch as the intimidating Altair, will be free to download once you register an account at Ubisoft.com.
"Prince of Persia is an incredible experience," said Ben Mattes, Producer. "We're thrilled to give our loyal fans another way to journey through it. This exclusive reward is a 'thank you' to our fans, who can easily unlock it when they link their Ubisoft.com accounts to their Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 gamer identities."
The game itself is out on December 2 in North America, December 4 in Europe and December 5 in the UK for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.

Nice! i was kinda wondering whether they would do that =D. But it better not be all buggy like AC due to the same engine =S Game looks good

Alright. This is a must buy for me.... But I wonder, what about Assassins Creed 2? Wasn't it supposed to become a triology? I really liked AC, although it had its flaws

I loved POP on the PS2 but I'll give Uncharted my adventure game for the PS3 because I'm a big fan Naughty Dog.

My friend thought the Altair skin was 360 exclusive but I can thankfully tell him wrong.

Honestly,i think it's a crappy idea,mixing up two of your biggest franchises this early is dumb.Especially considering the fact that so many ppl are skeptical about this new PoP design and direction.It might be taken as a sign of desperation.
