Ubisoft and TransGaming on Thursday announced that March 24 will see the release of Prince of Persia and Shaun White Snowboarding as not only digital downloads through both companies' online stores but also as boxed products available at retail outlets. The Mac versions of CSI: Hard Evidence, Rayman Raving Rabbids and Petz Sports, which were previously available only as digital downloads, will also be released as boxed products next month.
The latest edition of Prince of Persia, which was released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC last December, takes the venerable series in a new direction. Players take control of a new unnamed Prince as he makes his way across a mysterious land with help from Elika, a woman he meets after a sandstorm causes him to lose his way.
The game will sell for US$49.99 and require Mac OS X version 10.5.6, an Intel Core Duo processor, 1GB RAM, an ATI X1600 or NVIDIA 7300GT video card, and 8.01GB of hard drive space.
Shaun White Snowboarding, which was published for PC and various consoles late last year, features six mountains, each with a peak, back country, and resort. The game boasts open-world mountains that players can explore on their own, complete with a multiplayer environment in which others are doing the same. Players can also seek out secret spots and film their friends doing tricks.
