Confirmed: Splinter Cell: Conviction not coming to PS3

Ubisoft has confirmed to VideoGamer.com that Splinter Cell: Conviction, announced as a PC and Xbox 360 title, will not be coming to PS3 and will not be coming out on April 1, as previously rumoured.

Yesterday online reports suggested the game was set to appear on Sony's next-gen console - a rumour sparked by UK specialist retailer GAME, which listed the title on its website. (PC, PS3, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction, Xbox 360)

It's a rental
I still only plan on renting this game anyway, but I guess I will be renting it on the 360 now. But I will be buying MGS4 on the PS3. It's rental because the last Splinter Cell Disappointed and so far this one seems even more disappointing. I like the original Pandora Tomorrow, and Chaos Theory.

Bubble for you for that snappy comment. Not that I'm flip flopping, I'll be playing both since I have both systems.

And I was just about to become a Ubisoft fan after playing through Assassin's Creed...

I don't know how they expect to retain a fanbase with these slaps in the face. They need to realize there are enough games out there not published or developed by Ubisoft for both the PC and PS3 that are just as good or better.
mikeslemonade  +   2813d ago
Spinter cell is a rehash. I mean the franchise is what only 5 or 6 years old and it's already splinter cell 5. Come on take a break because they are probably have used the same engine for the first 4 games. This game is the epitome of souless games. It's hear to milk splinter cell fans and i wouldn't have bought this game for the PS3 just as I never bought a splinter cell game before.
IntelligentAj  +   2812d ago
Oh well... Not that big a deal with MGS4 to soften the blow(if you can call it that)
Anego Montoya FTMFW  +   2813d ago
i still say it will, eventually.
but i honestly don`t car to much.

it peaked w/ chaos theory.
iNcRiMiNaTi  +   2813d ago
this one is being developed by the chaos theory team, ubisoft montreal
the last splinter cell [on 360] was made by the shanghai studio. the montreal studio handled the xbox1 version of the last splinter cell and was said to be better than the 360 version. thats kinda why its gotten me excited and its using a more advanced version of the engine they used in assassins creed for object interaction and the NPCs running around. i dunno, i liked how altair pushed people out of the way and collided with them if he was going to fast in assassins. it feels and looks realistic.

Now shut up
about the damn rumors already!!
Anego Montoya FTMFW  +   2813d ago
so no one should submit any rumors?

are you crazy?

don`t just say thing to say them!

@the judge(below)

i disagree, but your opinion is fine w/ me.

i just don`t understand why people want these kinda of topics CENSORED.

cause that`s what your talking about.

if you don`t like it don`t acknowledge/read/comment on it.

but because YOU find it stupid, it shouldn`t be posted.

i found it and posted, it i DIDN`T write it.

if you have a legit source than post it but rumors based on wether a retail site has a game that isn't even finished up for preorder isn't reliable. Same goes for a rumor based on a company hiring people, thats just pure conjecture and based in fantasy. Its lame and needs to stop.
crunchie101  +   2813d ago
Good. This was a stupid rumour to begin with. The Splinter Cell team have proven themselves to be completely incompetant with the PS3 (Double Agent), and if it does ever come to the PS3, i wont be buying it.

@PirateThom: Aah, OK. Fair enough. I actually preferred the PS2/Xbox version of Double agent to the 360/PS3 version (it had co-op!), and, yeah, I loved POP:SOT, SP1 and 3, and Conviction sounds really promising.

Still, focusing on one console should make the game better. I'm just glad I'm PS360.

PirateThom  +   2813d ago
That was Ubisoft Shaghai who made Double Agent for 360, PS3 and Windows.

Ubisoft Montreal are making Conviction, they also made the PS2/Wii versions of Double Agent, the original Splinter Cell, Prince of Persia Sands of Time, Assassin's Creed and Rainbow Six Vegas and are generall considered to be good.

Yeah. You really know how to take them with a grain of salt, don't you?

"chalk up another victory.(possibly)
Farcry 2 will sit nicely beside CRYSIS"

And that was a presumed typo from a retailer. C'mon dude.

@below - what's the whole victory part about then?

Farcry 2 WILL sit nicely beside CRYSIS.(it is on ps3 you know)

Crysis hasn`t been shot down yet, coincidence, i think NOT.

BTW, go back to continue grade 2 if you don`t know what possibly means.

make that three, farcry is not a ps3 exclusive according to ubisoft, as this site would have led you to believe this morning,

Yup, I think these rumors are coming up to be the equivalent to the MGS4 coming to 360 rumors. So only six billion left.
radzy  +   2813d ago
i get as sense that the ps3 owners dont feel too comfortable about 2008. whats going on?
yous have killzone , metal gear , final fantasy, gt5 , and , and .....

yeah thats right , there not that good after all .

no thanks, 360 all the way.
i swear sometimes because of the 360 hardware problems i feel to get a ps3 but then isay to myself , ok , no xbox live , no halo , no splinter cell , no alan wake , etc... and then i think what games would i get if i got a ps3. metal gear , (dont like the controls,i prefer splinter cell) , final fantasy (you hit me , i hit you , not real time fighting),
killzone (this title doesnt shake me,360 has the best shooters , when you can stick some one and sniper the way you do in halo, then come back to me) .
gt5(i think forza 2 and pgr are much more realistic.e.g. damage , feel of the car,etc..)
maybe the only game i wouldn't mind having is god of war 3.
thats just me. i dont really like the playstaion controller, i much prefer the 360 controller.

terrificly boring
I couldn't even finish Chaos Theory because I was falling asleep
PirateThom  +   2813d ago
Bar the first one, the whole series has been a mess.

Ubisoft wanted as many games out as possible, so they split the work between Ubisoft Montreal (Splinter Cell, Chaos Theory, Conviction) and Ubisoft Shaghai (Pandora Tomorrow, Double Agent).

The quality is lacking for odd games because of the split (like Call of Duty)
InMyOpinion  +   2813d ago
Because it's not coming to the PS3.

I didn't play much of Pandora tommorow... but the original Splinter Cell & Chaos Theory are MASTERPIECES in my opinion.
Rocko  +   2812d ago
I know right.
I picked up the original out of curiosity in the bargain bin. I've played em all since then, Splinter Cell FTW.
mistertwoturbo  +   2813d ago
Thank you UBI! We all know how multiplat titles end up. One system gets the shaft, and it probably would have been a port on the PS3 not developed simultaneously.

I will definitely give this game a rent for my 360. But MGS4 will definitely take the cake for my PS3 espionage needs.

Well u should always post rumors... but if you comment on one you should at least have the brain capacity 2 know that infact they are just rumors.

Splinter Cell is a huge franchise, chaos theory (same devs) was an extremely successful and critically acclaimed title. It deserves alot more respect than the MGS4 fanboys give it. MGS4 will rock no question, but if you're gonna arrogantly sweep SC under the carpet then sam fisher is gonna punch you in the uterus... right in the baby maker ;)

P.S. Gunner, spot on comment man! That's exactly what I've been saying. 2008 is the time for the 360 fanboys to bear with the negative rumours about their console/games, etc. 2007 it was the year to bash the PS3. Now...well I guess its the other way around. ;)

This is nothing more than damage control by the representatives at Ubisoft. Dark Sniper can proudly state that Splinter Cell:Conviction will see a release on the world renowned PLAYSTATION® 3 home entertainment console.

Developers have experienced what PLAYSTATION® 3 can provide for customers and developers so it makes complete sense for this game to be experienced by Sony Snipers worldwide. Every Splinter Cell game has been released on a Sony platform and this one will be no different. Ubisoft is looking to increase the frame rate and remove jaggies that will more than likely be present on the XBOX 360 version.

you are a trip. when people read your quotes they are thinking "WTF".
InMyOpinion  +   2813d ago
Lots of words with no substance...
Last time I checked Splinter Cell: Double Agent didn't look too good on the PS3. The developers themselves had this to say about SC:Conviction:

"Some pretty negative comments about the PS3 made by the devs. They state the fact that they are exclusive to the 360 allows them to do much more than if they were multiplatform, but they also state they doubt they would be able to achieve what they're doing with the game on the 360 on the ps3 even if it was ps3 exclusive."

cr33ping_death  +   2813d ago
@ jenzo
no one who has a PS3 cares about splinter cell......we dont care if it cant be done on the PS3(even though we all know thats BS) fact of the matter is we get MGS 4, bigger than anything splinter cell has to offer.

edit to jizo: whos b!tching? understand that no one in here wants SC on the PS3. this article was clearly made 1. to get the facts straight and 2. to have 360 fans trying to make it seem like PS3 owners lost something that we had no interests to begin with. again....yes this game is possible on the PS3, no we PS3 gamers/SONY dont need this game what so ever. now go away you annoy me

lodossrage  +   2813d ago
I'll repeat what I said before when the article
about this game coming to ps3 was rumored. BIG DEAL!!!

The majority of ps3 owners don't even want splinter cell in the first place. Why would most of the ps3 owners want a second-rate metal gear clone?

If we want a stealth game, we get the best. Which happens to be metal gear.

So to repeat what I said last week and earlier, 360 can keep this crap
JasonPC360PS3Wii  +   2813d ago
"will not be coming to PS3"
As if the words from Peter Moore from last years E3 saying "exclusive" didn't exsist. You Droids are getting stupid lately, what's up with that? To any Droid who may respond with "well you guys talk about MGS4", stop right there because thats not this Xbot. I prefere my stealth games with moss, water and rope arrows.
solidt12  +   2813d ago
Lately the Rumor have been rampant. More rumors have been posted than facts.
ElementX  +   2813d ago
So this is two rumors which started from GAME? First Conviction on PS3 and FarCry 2 PS3 exclusive? Why do people twist typos around and think that a retailer would blow cover for something? It's happened time and time again. Don't believe retailers until it's official.
heyheyhey  +   2813d ago
im not sure about NG2, but this is will come to ps3- its a timed exclusive at most

they are not going to tell you that because silence is part of a timed exclusivity clause

haze could slated for a 360 release already as far as we know- they will never tell you before the other version has been released
bootsielon  +   2813d ago
It's gonna come, eventually
It's more likely to port it to PS3 than make a 360 port of MGS4. Making MGS4 on DVD9 would be, if it's even possible, a logistics nightmare. The port would be more expensive than making the game from scratch.
