This week we finally get a chance to take a look at Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Thanks again to the folks over at Play N Trade, Oviedo, FL for supplying us or test copies. While PoP: TFS has been out for some time now, and with other sites having done an analysis of their own already, we thought the verdict was going to be cut throat.

This week we single out which version of Singularity is the superior version for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Singularity is Raven Software’s second title based on Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 3.

One console is continuously out performing the other when developers chose to use this engine across platforms. But hold the phone, before you think you already know the outcome of this H2H, think again, it’s was no walk in the park. This was one of the most difficult Head2Head decisions we had to make in a while…..
