Clearly one of the highlights of E3 2008, the new Prince of Persia on the Xbox 360 and PS3 is looking very impressive. But alongside them at the Ubisoft booth the DS version was on show, and Gamespot got the first chance to see it in action.
The DS game is a side-scrolling platformer that's controlled almost exclusively using the touchscreen interface. You'll tap objects to attack them and leap over them, and you'll double-tap to perform rolls. The prince also has a new glave hand that allows him to slide down walls at a slower pace. It might sound simplistic, but it seemed to work well as Gamespot watched an Ubisoft rep walk them through it.
