If you don't know GoG.com, it a digital distribution-service of a game developer team(The Witcher) which ports older PC titles on newer game systems and offering them DRM-free for a simple price ($5,99/$9,99).
Ubisoft already released all Myst titles and PoP:SoT and BG&E on GoG, so it shouldn't be that unknown here.

I will be straight ahead, Jordan Mechner considers releasing his old titles (The Last Express, Prince of Persia series) on GoG.com.

We will get a more detailed answer probably later, but I thought of telling you guys this.
Prince of Persia 1&2 and The Last Express are really good tiltes really hard to get and probably don't work on newer system.

Currently Ubisoft owns all right of Borderbund, so we might get a chance seeing in the near future.

^kind of busy with real life/research... I do have more to say/post but later dude. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

EDIT: Got some free time.

This would be really good. Personally I would like to PoP Classic released like this on the PC on top everything else. Aside from this, having not to use DosBox each time to play POP 2: The Shadow and the Flame will be nice alternative. Hopefully Jordan Mechner through Ubisoft is able to persuade them to release more of his titles through this service and maybe even splice them up a bit ie. filters so they look good on HDTV or monitors. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

That would be awesome since Ubisoft only put Shadow and the Flame on the xbox version of SOT and thus I was only able to play the first game http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I'd still prefer Ubisoft to put Shadow and the Flame on their next POP game since I don't buy anything online.
