Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands - Developer Diarty #3

New publicity stills of "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time"

In this latest developer diary for Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, you get a nice look at the Prince's new ability to control various elements. Gifted with powers by a Djinn named Razia, the Prince can control earth, wind, water, and fire.

Not just a killer R&B group, the powers are used both in puzzles and in combat. One use shows the Prince freezing waterfalls so he can wall run arosss them, or stopping water spouting from fountains to climb or swing. His wind power is shown for use in combat, picking up enemies and pulling them in before tossing them out in all directions.

Give it a "name": When it comes to getting a greenlight in Hollywood today, it's all about the name. If people remember the "Sex and the City" TV show, there's a built-in audience for the movie (May 27). "Marmaduke" (June 4) may be a bit on the obscure side for most children today, but parents who remember the comic strip could take their kids to the June 4 flick.
Whether the names "Prince of Persia" (May 28) and "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" (July 16) will pull in more dough than wholly original films about Persian princes and magic is anyone's guess, but this much is certain: From "Predators" (July 9) to "The Last Airbender" (July 2) to "The Karate Kid" and "The A-Team" (both June 11), everything old is new again.
