Good old Games has struck a deal with Ubisoft to offer classics such as Prince of Persia: Sands of Time and Beyond Good & Evil for download.

They're available, along with IL-2 Sturmovik 1946, from the retro-specialist's digital distribution service now.

Each costs USD 10, and will be joined in the coming weeks by Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six, Far Cry, Heroes of Might and Magic and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell.

Good old Games offers all sorts of PC games from yesteryear. That may not sound too spectacular, but factor that there are no DRM measures to frustrate nor compatibility issues with today's operating systems (including Vista), and the prospect brightens.

There's even a community to become a part of. Back off?!

Trample over to GOG.com for a look at the wares.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
