    Why do they never tell us what we actually want to know? i.e. how long is it and how much do you want for it?

    “i.e. how long is it and how much do you want for it?”

    Ummm…

    “The Prince and Elika will face more cunning foes, cleverer traps and level design, adding more to the difficulty level in over 3 hours of gameplay.”

    That answers your first question at least.

    “PoP Epilogue? So should we call it ‘PoPE’?”

    *laughs* I can see that catching on…

    Ah, I missed that – thanks.

    So that’s somewhere between an hour and an hour and a half in non-PR terms. Better be cheap.

    Well, at least we know Ubi is continuing support on the title! Just hope this isn’t one corrupted land like in the main game, which aren’t incredibly long!
