WIN! Prince Of Persia Xbox 360 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 six days.

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

And yesterday's PS3 winner is:

Andrew Costanzo! His limerick read:

If the Prince falls, he does not deter, He can reverse time so it won’t occur, Grabs the dagger in hand, ...Oh no, out of sand! Where is Elika when you need her?

Also, a quick shout out to FatShady, Stone, Badger, Stevorooni, Anthony Zonaga, Gerard, Ross Colvin, dxyl and Michael for all making me laugh.

    Oh wow, yay!!
    Good luck to everyone elses limericks. I can't wait to read some more awesome ones.

      well done mate - very nice limerick

        Ah looks like I wasn't the only one who liked it after all - well earnt!

    There once was a persian prince
    who really made bad guys wince
    At leaping adept
    and through dimensions he stepped
    shifting time to avoid being mince

    The Prince walks around with a swagger
    But the swords on the wall make him stagger
    Too bad for the Prince
    For they surely will mince
    You're lucky you have got the Dagger

    the prince with his sword did advance
    he moves with such grace like a dance
    he runs along walls
    to avoid any falls
    cos he hates getting sand in his pants

    There once was a guy stuck at work
    Who on Kotaku would lurk
    Prince of Persia loot
    Would make him go W00T!
    And count as a business perk

    If I could turn back time,
    For I've slipped on some slime,
    I'd not call upon Cher,
    But the Prince with long hair,
    And back up the wall I would climb.

    the prince felt an annoying itch
    in his groin whilst scaling a cliff
    but without a hand to spare
    a thought through the despair
    "never again flirt with a witch"

    there once was a man named prince
    whose act failed to convince
    for he sung red corvette and purple rain
    over and over again
    after that we haven't seen him since.

      What about N.E.W.S. and the album named after the street number of his ridiculous mansion?

    What's up with that wild Prince's vest?
    Just armour to cover his chest?
    If he got hacked at the shoulder,
    Then Persia may smolder,
    So why doesn't he cover up the rest?

    I have to admit I already entered a similar limerick yesterday, but I think it got lost somewhere in the interwebs, so I'll attempt to repeat myself :P

    The prince's tale is one of frustration
    that comes from his love of narration
    Farah asked how he knew her name
    to which his reply then became
    An endlessly looping explanation

    Of the prince whom it's said is a Persian,
    I profess he has quite the aversion,
    To monsters of sand,
    Who plague his fair land,
    And putt him off wearing his turban!

    PS3 version.

    Persia has been through the wringer
    Lucky the prince is a swinger
    More like trapeze
    Not a bowl full of keys
    That would be more Jerry Springer

    With dagger in hard, he fights foes,
    So nimble, so quick on his toes
    Not afraid of great heights,
    Hard to keep in your sights
    To the walls, look up high, there he goes!

      Fail >_<

      Can't edit... should read: "hand", not "hard".

        His dagger is hard, and it shows,
        He has a slight fetish for toes
        Not afraid to wear tights,
        He's got breasts in his sights,
        To the bed, under doona, he blows!

        A dirty limerick is the best kind of limerick.

          That reminds me of the Sean Connery impersonator on SNL's Celebrity Jeopordy.

          "I cut cut an album of dirty limericks just so I could be here tonight"

    "We need a new prince, " went the call.
    "whose acting will win over all.
    "He needs to be charming,
    "his looks and sword disarming!"
    So really? Jake Gyllenhaal?

    POP looked really good for the 360
    so I went and bought it for about 50
    after five hours of play
    I returned it later that day
    hopefully this one won't be so shitty

    The Prince made his way through some traps
    The tower was dangerous without maps
    If the Sultan came home soon
    He'd fall into a pit of doom
    The architect should be fired with slaps

    Chesty Jake is getting irate
    Tamina's period is late
    He'll use the time dagger
    And regain his lost swagger
    No more baby? Well played mate


    There once was a Persian prince
    That desperately needed to piss
    with no place to unzip
    he tryed to stop time but ran out of time
    and now hes covered in it

    Deftly the prince does attack,
    Rarely is he taken aback,
    Rendering all foes asunder,
    Leaving him time to wonder,
    How to get the sand from betwixt his crack...

    There once was a Persian Prince
    who had a bit of a mince
    "He is so Gay"
    the people did say
    And no one has heard from him since

    A blade did sever my prince
    Severed flesh and bone with a wince
    Despite the powers of time
    Water is the best healer for mine
    Homeopath advertising has never been better since

    The Prince was a man without wife
    Loving girls while in a single life
    If forced to commit
    To a marriage permit
    He'd rewound time back with his knife

    To Ubisoft I can't connect,
    As I have terrible Internet.
    PoP, DRM-free
    On Xbox 360
    Is my best -and only- bet.

    The prince got sick of the sand.
    He no longer thought Persia to be grand.
    He decided to franchise reboot.
    To a first person shoot.
    But got stuck as DLC in Rockband.

      I like this one. Great work.

    There were three prince games not overlooked
    The gaming world they quite shook
    But they need updating dramatically
