Ubisoft has pushed the PC release of Prince of Persia back a week to 12th December.

The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions still arrive on 5th December, according to the schedule, which we think gives the game a fighting chance at a Christmas number one.

Ubisoft, remember, enjoyed this privilege last year with Assassin's Creed, which pipped FIFA 08 to the post.

However, online bookie Paddy Power doesn't even give Prince of Persia a look-in. At all. As in, nowhere on its list.

At the time of writing, Paddy Power has the odds-on favourite as Call of Duty: World at War at 2-1, followed by FIFA 09 at 4-1, and Need For Speed Undercover at 5-1.

Not that we condone gambling, but if you fancy a punt, head on over to Paddy Power.
