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:

jawsy!

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.

    FatShady now has a baby,
    He wants to win this like crazy,
    But he's doing it wrong,
    Don't sing the baby a song!
    Turn back time and say "Sorry Lady"

    Disclaimer: I have nothing against having children, neither is it personal towards FatShady. This is all in jest, and i think it's a wonderful thing and perhaps the only purpose in life for humans to have great children. Again, I reiterate, this is all in jest!

      First off, I don't actually think I can be offended. Check out my blog
      inappropriatehumor.blogspot.com

      Second of all, damn you for using my funniness against me (and to benefit you....)

      Oh well, here goes... Sorry David, I know you said no double posts but this time its personal!

      The history from Andrew:
      FatShady now has a baby,
      He wants to win this like crazy,
      But he’s doing it wrong,
      Don’t sing the baby a song!
      Turn back time and say “Sorry Lady”

      ...And my response...
      Andrews comments were quite complex
      With a disclaimer his rights he protects
      But I do have a kid
      and that is no fibb
      And at least I can say I've had SEX!

      Your move!

      PS. Loved your one mate!

    There once was a Prince who was Persian,
    Who boasted quite the aversion,
    To the demons of sand,
    Who plagued his fair land,
    So he used his dagger to purge 'em!

    PS3

    (With American accent....)

    There once was a Prince from Iran
    Who enjoyed playing with magic sand
    Game appearances he has had Nine
    With something, I wish Persia did rhyme
    Cause Iran does sound rather bland.

      I didn't even read your entire post. I just read the first two lines without the accent and said.. "Iran and Sand.. wtf", then saw the part about the accent. Re-read it and immediately posted this.

      Very Funny! love it.

    I've read so many poems I dare say
    I can't stop thinking A, A, B, B, A
    If I hear any more of this tune
    it will be only too soon
    But if I win, it was worth it today

    The Focus is on acrobatics and agility
    It's all the prince’s responsibility
    No doubt it will take hours
    To get the additional elemental powers
    But it will all hang on my availability

    Since I can't write a good rhyme
    I'll come up with a better line
    With the dagger in hand
    Full of magical sand
    I'd go back to haiku time

    Just a question... Are these competitions open worldwide ? or just Australia ?

      Australian residents only.

    The Prince was able, they said,
    To reverse flow of time when shred.
    Though great this may be,
    One thing I query;
    How is rewind pressed when he's dead?

    Through the course of the week I've been stumped,
    To come up with an entry that trumps,
    If it's a failure this time,
    No dagger to rewind,
    So I'll have to pay cash like a chump.

    The once was a Prince from the past
    Who somehow everyone he did outclass
    It was as if he knew
    What we all would do
    But there are many ways to kick someones ass

    There once was a man named Jake Gyllenhaal
    Who kicked a--aah, I'm outta here.

    Awesome! Thanks a bunch, David. I needed a bit of good news after spending the week battling with tonsillitis.

    There once was a Prince named Jake,
    Who wanted to feed ducks at the lake,
    He threw them bread,
    Went back in time and said:
    "Time travel a good day makes."

    He jumps, he rolls and he walks on walls...
    He controls time to banish foes once and for all...
    What's his real name? I really don't know
    He saves kingdoms and princesses though!
    Chuck Norris! The Prince is here to bring your fall!

    (cue background noise - "Everybody run!!!")

    Kotaku is overrun by gamers studying Linguistics!
    A trait that is not one of my characteristics
    If I controlled the dagger of time
    I would use it to steal, rewind and re-post the best rhyme
    Winning all competitions with unbeaten statistics

    Prince of Persia flew across a wall,
    Prince of Persia had a great fall,
    All the Persian's creatures and all the Persian's undead men arrived firsthand,
    Tore him apart and then played in the Forgotten Sands.

      Godamnit. I just noticed I did 4 lines instead of 5 due to following a rhyme :( Can't think of a 5th line to go with my entry

        That is all.

    The Prince tried to jump a long gap,
    But fell in a dastardly trap,
    How did he drop,
    In the cell-shaded POP?
    ‘Cos Elika was having her nap.

    There once was a boy with a persian mother,
    her beauty was legendary like no other.
    She was a queen,
    pregnant as a teen.
    That'll teach her, for doing it with her brother.

    ...n and on my friends,
    Started by some Persian Prince,
    It has been running ever since,
    He found his dagger, time transcends.

    This is the limerick that never ends,
    It just goes on and on my friends,
    Started by some Persian Prince,
    It has been running ever since,
    He found his dagger, time transcends.

    The sands of time are at his command
    Controlling the flow of time within his hand
    He uses this gift not for the greater good
    Or rescuing princesses like his should
    But instead to clear his underwear of sand

    Jake Gyllenhaal once started as Donnie Darko
    Weak, he had a few steroid Tacos
    His gigantic abs were the one-and-all
    Jerry Bruckheimer had to gve him a call
    Now his sippin' Champagne in Rio de Janeiro

    Limerick first:

    There once was a prince from Iran
    Who hopped, skipped and jumped like no man
    "Iran"'s there, you see
    <3 Geography
    Speaking of, time to play some Catan

    Haiku:

    A prince of Persia
    Parkour, time travel, I guess
    Never played them *shrug*

    I sure have never played any PoP game :P Looks good though, if only to see myself reflected in those epic abs.

    Walk forward and drop down the floor,
    Turn right and you'll enter a war,
    Go back left and discover,
    A sword you'll recover,
    Fight back right to exit the door.

    The prince was not to be crossed
    He fought throughout Persia at great cost
    But in the process
    Of claiming success
    Error – Connection to server lost

    Of course i must admit
    I have not played a PoP game, not a bit
    But with time mechanics that are cool
    And graphics for which to drool
    Winning would be really sick!
