  • The text at the top of the screen was shifted upwards in the US version to make room for the Virgin Games logo.
  • The European version has a red tint for the text, while the US version displays in plain white.
  • The string of text
    PRINCE OF PERSIA IS A REGISTERED TRADEMARK OF BRODERBUND SOFTWARE, INC.
    was moved to the lower part of the copyright text in the US version. It swaps its place with the text
    ©1989, 1992 BRODERBUND SOFTWARE, INC.
    and
    ©1992 VIRGIN GAMES, INC. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.
    . The European version also adds a
    JORDAN MECHNER.
    string after the Broderbund copyright, which necessitated a comma after the ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

Interestingly, the US version does not say LICENSED BY NINTENDO OF AMERICA, and just says LICENSED BY NINTENDO instead.
