This time around the Prince has all of the elements at his disposal, so he can freeze water, climb up waterfalls, do all kinds of very interesting stuff with the elements of the earth. ^M00:02:00 Definitely worth checking out if you've got an Xbox 360. Now let's go check out what we can look forward to on the PlayStation 3. First game we want you guys to check out on the PlayStation 3 is Red Dead Redemption made by Rockstar games, the people behind Grand Theft Auto. Red Dead Redemption is a western open world game. Think Grand Theft Auto but out in the old west.
