The original classic POP that you can unlock in Forgotten Sands is not the 1992 SNES version. I thought it was supposed to be that version it is not. It's just the classic 1989 computer version. I'm very disappointed.

Well, the original couldn't have come out in '92 if there was a version in '89.

A version of the original game was released in 92 for the SNES. That is the version of the game I thought was supposed to be on Forgotten sands it is not. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince_of_Persia_(1989_video_game)

If its the same version why does it matter what console it was released on.

From Wikipedia:

The SNES version is also unique. Aside from graphic and aural enhancements, the game has twenty levels instead of the original's thirteen; the original levels that remained had some extra rooms or different routes. Also, there are boss battles, some of which are not the typical swordfighters, and that involves not only swordfighting but dodging as well. The player was also given two hours to rescue the Princess (all other versions were limited to one hour). The prologue is also different, showing the Prince dating the Princess, then being arrested and beaten.

IT looks like the SNES version added a lot. I never played it myself as I grew up with the DOS one.

But its the original. It can't be called the original if its the version released 3 years later.

@Aviator: to take a page from your own book, does the word used really matter?? it's not the version reported on beforehand, and it's not the one TheSeeker was expecting.

After a little more research what is really included with Forgotten Sands is the 1992 macintosh version of (we will call it Prince of Persia 1 so as not to upset anyone) I really like Forgotten Sand and it would have be great to get the SNES version of Prince of Persia 1 like it was supposed have with it. The point is they said it would have the SNES version and they did not follow through with that promise, and I believe the reason is because they wanted to sell the SNES version of Prince of Persia 1 on the VC and did not want to give it away with Forgotten Sands.

I think the game has licensing issues. We're going to need to get Nintendo, Konami, Ubisoft, and Myasa (The developer, probably mispelt it) to cooperate with each other. Problem is, Myasa is dead and Konami doesn't own the right to the game. Plus Ubisoft is a non-VC supporter, putting the SNES version in an unlikely VC release position.
