What we heard: Over the past few months, publisher Ubisoft has announced that it would unleash Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia HD Trilogy packs on the PlayStation 3 beginning March 22. Now, it appears the three-packs might venture outside of Sony's console and onto Microsoft's.
The ESRB has posted listings for every title within both packs for release on the Xbox 360. Those titles are Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones HD, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time HD, and Prince of Persia: The Warrior Within HD.
And on the Sam Fisher side of things, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell HD, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory HD, and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow HD all have listings connected to the Xbox 360.
The PS3 has welcomed a string of remastered trilogy packs lately. The God of War Collection and the Sly Collection were released late last year, and a Team Ico Collection is also slated to debut exclusively on the PS3. Also, the Tomb Raider Trilogy will debut alongside the Prince of Persia and Splinter Cell trilogies on March 22 on Sony's console.
The official story: A Ubisoft rep told GameSpot "We have no plans at this time of releasing the Pop and Splinter Cell HD trilogies on Xbox 360."
Bogus or not bogus?: There's a slight possibility that the ESRB listings could be clerical errors. But rarely has the ratings board listed something that didn't hit the market…eventually. Looking not bogus.
