Hmm, according to the Wikipedia (which has references for that particular part) the composer of 'The Forgotten Sands' is Tom Salta:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forgotten_sands

Any idea how Steve Jablonksy ended up here?

EDIT: Hmm, interesting... googling with 'prince persia forgotten sands steve jablonsky' also gives some hits. Anyway, the information on the net is very contradicting...

EDIT2: Found a comment by Graeme Jennings here:
Quote:
Yeah, we have whole teams dedicated to both environment (level design) and music… and we have a lot of fun brainstorming and searching through possible influences. I know our Art Director had a very clear vision, basing our environments off of the Mughal period of architecture.

Meanwhile, in addition to our internal teams, we hired Steve Jablonsky (composer for Transformers: The Movie) to give our soundtrack the epic scope that we knew we wanted.
Jennings seems to be the producer of the game, so if that's really him then I suppose our current composer info is valid.

If fact, Tom Salta composed the music for the Wii/PSP/DS versions of the game.
While Steve Jablonsky composed for PS3/XBOX360/PC.

It surprised me at first, but apparently there are two completely different versions of the game. I vastly prefer Tom Salta's score though.
