It Came From The Collection #7: Prince of Persia Warrior Within Pre-Order Artbook

 

EPISODE 07: Prince of Persia Warrior Within Pre-Order Artbook
If you were on board for the Prince’s darker, more emo turn, then this 2004 pre-order artbook is right up your alley. Let’s take a 4K look at some concept art and reminisce about the early-2000’s PC boxart unification (with special appearances by Half-Life 2 and Tribes Vengeance).

In hopes of bringing something a little more unique to YouTube I started ‘It Came From The Collection‘ to chronicle the gaming ephemera I’ve amassed over the years: flyers and pamphlets, pre-order tchotchkes, toys, posters, and all kinds of marketing paperwork.

I’ve had this Target giftcard since 2006 but it stopped lighting up several years ago. Looks like it’s time to tear it down and see what makes it tick… err, glow!

Over a decade later and these things STILL cost too much!

Target is finally closing out some PlayStation 2 products and these once-$30 Memory Cards still seem too expensive at only ten bucks. I don’t miss memory cards as an overpriced accessory but having come to store all my Xbox 360 saves on a USB drive I do love the convenience of having all my saves and profiles at hand.

The 2008 closeouts have been really good to me over the last month or two. I got Far Cry 2 at Best Buy for $30 on sale and we used some leftover giftcards for Lips but the other two were amazing $15 finds on clearance at Target. I love Target’s clearance endcaps.
