WIN! Prince Of Persia PS3 Game & Guide

Everyone loved Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. Which is why the new Prince of Persia - out next week - is ostensibly a sequel to everyone's favourite Prince of Persia game. And it's really good. Wanna win it?

Thanks to Ubisoft we have EIGHT copies of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands to give away this week. That's four copies on PlayStation 3 and four on Xbox 360.

We also have EIGHT Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands official Prima guides as well, pictured. So you win the game and the guide. If you win, that is.

We're giving away one game and guide today and every day for the next three days. Actually, we're skipping the weekend, so check back Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for the final three draws.

How do you enter?

Easy. It's limerick time once more. All you have to do is write a Prince of Persia themed limerick in the comments below. Normally I give you the opening line, but this time you're free to choose your own. Just make sure the limerick is about the Prince of Persia!

Entries for today's PS3 draw will close at midnight tonight. No multiple entries please - but you may enter the next draw using a new limerick or perhaps a haiku. Make sure you leave a valid email or comment via Facebook Connect.

And yesterday's 360 winner is:


Girlfriend hates my games. 'But look- it's Jake Gyllenhaal!' Two as one on couch.

Nothing traditional about this haiku, but it did make me giggle.

    David, you need to remove or amend the last sentence of the post.

      Seems to be fixed now. Well Done!

      Move on everyone, nothing to see here

    This is just for fun since I don't deserve two copies of the game.

    There once was a Princess named Farah,
    The Prince thought there was no one fairer,
    So he went for a kiss,
    But was met with dismiss,
    And he quickly reversed that error.

    Well done Jawsy. Also, love D. Wildgoose's copy and pasting, re: second line nailing what traditional haikus are about:

    But look - it's Jake Gyllenhaal.

    Ah, just like the old Japanese used to write.

      Jake-sama was a feudal lord during the Edo period. I thought everyone knew that.

        Damn your almighty powers of edit. Now my comment has no context and looks silly!

        Prince seeks Princess: athletic, tall, tanned
        For an easy risk-free one night stand
        No need for protection
        When bumping midsections
        With the dagger of time in my hand

          oops, accidently posted this as an in-line reply >_>

          forgiva-ness please, David-sama!

    There once was a young prince from Cairns,
    who found he could move time with his hands.
    His only crime,
    from altering time
    was looking at girls without pants!

    A forgettable Prince have the Persians,
    With so many platforming diversions,
    Now Donnie Darko’s a foot,
    Showcasing pommy accents and smut,
    Thank God* we still get our gaming perversions.

    *Insert relevant faith – God, Allah, Budda, Jebus, Yoda, Tony Abbott, Sir Les Patterson, etc.

    I am re-entering this as yesterdays should have been a haiku!

    There once was a Prince from Persia
    Who was mad addicted to ambrosia
    One fateful day,
    he pushed it away
    For his stomach was the size of Russia

    I lie dying in a ravine.
    Pretty sure that blob there's my spleen.
    I would use the sands,
    It's just that my hands,
    Were detached by a slicing machine.

    If Hendrix were crossed with Prince,
    His music would make us all wince,
    His Castles made of Sand,
    Played by The Experience band,
    Would surely sound shit, I'm convinced!

    There once was an actor named Jake,
    Whose five o'clock shadow seemed fake.
    They announced him the prince,
    And I said with a wince,
    "I wish he'd go jump in a lake!"

    Alright, time to submit this one properly :P Hopefully the comedic effect is not lost...

    The Prince held a dagger in his hand,
    That could control time with some weird kind of sand
    He kissed the Princess,
    But she slapped him for that B-S,
    So he rewound and instead had a one-night stand

    A prince that controls time
    A series so sublime
    A movie starring Jake?
    I’d rather play Alan Wake!
    This last line needs to rhyme

    There once was a Prince from Persia
    Who struggled with the grips of inertia,
    Over obstacle he bound
    Only to be found
    Skewered on spikes of acacia

    There once was a Princely Prince
    Who printed pricely prints
    He printed princessess
    and Queens and Countessess
    Even Ladies and Dames at a pinch... Also, he's from Persia.

    The prince is incredibly quick
    And rather athletically slick
    In a move that was kind
    They added rewind
    Because falling on spikes is a prick

    There once was a prince with a dagger,
    Who killed all shadows he staggered
    With his new lady friend
    Slow sales was the trend
    So now we've gone back to the emo

    A prisoner achieves royal ascension,
    but thinks that's just not enough pretension.
    "This world in 2D,
    is far below me.
    Let's add a third and then fourth dimension"

      Hate to admit it as I have an entry in also but that was pretty good. (For those who didn't know, the 4th dimension is time!...)

    They tell me that consequences exist,
    And not everyone can simply be kissed,
    But times they can change,
    With sand I rearrange,
    And now, restraining orders, I dismiss.

    Its likes groundhog day
    but without bill murray
    I went back in time
    So I could make up this rhyme

    (First 2 lines, influenced from TV Cartoon Bravestar)

    With, eyes of the hawk, ears of the wolf.
    Strength of the bear, speed of a puma !
    Will make all evil stop
    He is the Prince of POP
    Diving, darting danger with a hop.

    The once was a handsome young prince
    who had several adventurous stints
    until one day he fell
    down a spike trap filled well
    and he hasn't been heard from since!

    There once was a guy named FatShady
    Who now has a 16 month old baby
    Where once i could afford to buy games
    My gaming budget is spent on nappies & toy planes
    So Prince of Persia would make me oh-so happy.

    There once a Persian prince
    Who could reverse time in a pinch
    All his female foes
    Seemed to have trouble with clothes
    And their swords would make any man wince

    Princes of Persia 6 pack abs
    Made all the ladies wanna grab
    And oh to their shock
    Something’s wrong with jakes cock
    It appears Jake's now got crabs

    A bit wrong but funny :D

    The Prince was climbing his wall
    When suddenly, he died from a fall
    So all the King's horses
    And Persian armed forces
    Were wondering why they were called?

    As the Prince soars over the gaps
    The structures before him collapse
    If'he weren't an acrobat
    It could end with a splat
    He fell! Quick, the dagger; time-lapse.
