They not wanna review tekken8 or am I missing it last month or something

Probably didn't get enough time in it to make this edition. Expect a review in the next issue.

Legit question for Prince of Persia - I got it on PS5 (physical) because the demo played so well on it. So vibrant, controls tight, and super smooth 120fps.

On Xbox Series X, was the demo borked or something, restricted to only 60fps? Xbox has pretty much been my platform of choice for Ubisoft titles but I couldn't this time with something so obviously wrong that contradicted the claim (and tech analyses) that the XSX version was also 120.

Honest question, did you set your SX to 120fps in the settings?

I have the game, only played the beginning so far to check it out, I'm gonna try running it in 120 today.

Yeah I made sure the console was 120hz and did a full shutdown between two sessions of the demo. I play Halo Infinite at 120 and that definitely hits it (the obvious motion clarity + in-game frame counter).

But Prince of Persia was definitely still outputting at 60fps and swapping tv inputs in the same scene between PS5 and XSX, the PS5 version was running at its full 120 - absolutely zero blur in the fine lines of the background and foreground statues.

Ok, just checked it.

I have a LG C1, and the game optimizer is says it's running 119fps, and it definitely runs super smooth compared to when I had it at 60fps.

Maybe it's the demo, because the full version seems to work.

I can't speak for the demo but I can confirm the game does run at 120fps on series x. I'm loving the game in everyway and it reminds of gaming when I was a kid. We definitely need more games like this.

Ubisoft really outdone themselves with this and avatar frontiers of pandora.

Interview with Abdelhak Elguess and Mounir Radi, Developers Behind Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown

WTMG's Leo Faria: "Oh, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown. What a lovely little surprise you were, right at the beginning of the year. Without a doubt, one of the best metroidvanias in recent memory, and one of Ubisoft’s best titles of the past couple of decades. It, alongside games like Hi-Fi Rush, Assassin’s Creed Nexus and Helldivers II, showcased what I hope it will eventually turn into a trend of big name publishers focusing less on overbudgeted AAA experiences, and more on mid-tier gems meant to cater to a specific audience with no unnecessary monetization schemes on the side.

I played The Lost Crown to death when it first came out, but I kept thinking about it long after beating it. I wanted to know more about its development cycle. I wanted to discover how and why its developers decided to revive a long-dormant franchise, whilst turning it into a 2D metroidvania. Luckily, I was able to do just that. I was able to have a quick chat with two members from Ubisoft Montpellier, who were kind enough to answer some of my questions: Mounir Radi, the game’s director, and Abdelhak Elguess, its producer."
