Splinter Cell Conviction coming for Christmas

OXM UK: Ubisoft's financial statement has confirmed that long-delayed Xbox 360 exclusive Splinter Cell: Conviction exists and will be released at Christmas.

The story is too old to be commented.
GWAVE3150d ago

Pretty cool if true. There's so little info released for this game. I hope it turns out.

Thank God for some info on this game finally. Been waiting for a new Splinter Cell for ages, I just hope it has stuck to it's Stealth aspect

Killjoy30003150d ago

It seems as though Microsoft is making little to no effort in terms of first party support, so this is very, very good news for 360 owners. I'm not trying to be mean or anything, but you guys really need something to play.

u got owned3150d ago

Oooooooohhh yeaaaahhhhhhh!!!! Good news for X360 owners.

Bnet3433150d ago

Well at least Microsoft now has an exclusive coming out this year besides Halo 3 ODST. Can't wait. I like Splinter Cell, very nice stealth game.

HighDefinition3150d ago

This is the next game I`ll be getting for 360 (most likely).

socomnick3150d ago

Now i really cant wait for e3. If they plan on releasing the game this year then it must shown there. I just hope they go back to classic splinter cell gameplay not that double agent crap and definitely not that wana be assasins creed footage we seen before.

Said that dribble as your first comment, which to me implied that you have another account. Why didn't you just used that one.

Anyway, On topic with the story. I'm glad it's coming out this year. I want to see what changes they made to the build shown a while back.

@ Fleet Fox

You better watch out, you could loose all your bubbles just for talking sense.

Anyway this is great news, MS need this kind of news because as of right now Sony is kicking their butt on the exclusives department.

QSPR3150d ago

FINALLY!!! you guys deserved it and hope you guys enjoy it!! congrats..

Dread3150d ago (Edited 3150d ago )

more great news for 360 owners.

i can't wait.

@fox

i agree that the 360 has a stellar line up, but the Sony fans have this belief system that does not allow them to see anything good if it does not say "sony exclusive" and then when the games finally come out, after years of hype, they do not buy them.. go figure.

I for one can appreciate that Sony does have a good line up for 09. Which is better? well will see at the end of the year.

Sony Rep3150d ago (Edited 3150d ago )

ahhh

I love how 360 fanboys like to downplay PS3 exclusives. Let me put things into perspective here...

Uncharted 2 - sequel to the best action adventure game out, with a fresh spin on coop and multiplayer modes- potential Goty

Heavy Rain - A genre defining action, supense, adventure game with unique game mechanics, unmatched graphics, and branching storytelling- potential sleeper hit of 09

Killzone 2- Highest rated exclusive FPS this year with intense action and graphics only possible on the PlayStation 3- potential Goty

inFamous - A platformer heavily influenced by comic book themes, from the great developers at Sucker Punch - potential sleeper hit of 09

MLB 09 The Show - From Sony's San Diego studio. The first AAA sports title this generation of consoles has seen and the best baseball game on the market- potential Goty

MAG - From early previews , we have a game that is once again only possible on the PlayStation 3. This futuristic FPS game pits three factions, 256 players against each other in a battle for supremacy. Early talk, has this FPS pegged as the game to beat.

Quantum Theory - A fresh take on the third person action shooter; Quantum Theory is an exclusive from Tecmo that has two protagonist in a tower-- each with there own motives. A cover based shooter that introduces unique game play in the form of a living toer that transforms solid cover into an exposed area, as you are kept on your toes and look for the next cover point.

Just take a look how Sony extremists have reacted to news of another 360 game gearing up for launch. They are foaming from the mouth.

Some facts were made from OUR angle, which are true and look at the desperate Sony fanboys attack him!!!

I have a PS3(and love it), BUT THIS IS EMBARASSING.

Guys you have made is sooooooo obvious.

PS3 fanboys fear/loathe the Xbox 360.

DUHH3150d ago

It's about freaking time. I was beginning to think they forgot or ditched this title!

Dread3150d ago

@sony rep

heavy rain has not come out yet and we know almost nothing about it and yet you are claiming that

"A genre defining action, supense, adventure game with unique game mechanics, unmatched graphics, and branching storytelling- potential sleeper hit of 09"

wow! a bit much dont u think?

and uncharted the best action game? i am not so sure i can agree to that.. the game is awesome, and i cannot wait for the sequel, but the bets action game out..not so sure bud.

and did u mention a baseball game in there?

again Sony has a good line up, but this claim that the Sony exclusive line up is better.. lets not repeat 07 and 08 . I would expect sony fans to be a bit more cautious.

In any case there are great games coming for all. To bad the sony fans will only enjoy the ones coming for their system.

peace

White Knight Chronicles - A JRPG from mainstream success story, Level 5. WKC is an ode to classic JRPG storytelling in the vain of games like Dragon Quest. WKC tells the tales of a boy who must rescue a princess using his newly found powers of the White Knight-- a mythical giant with powers not seen for decades-- potential best in JRPG

Demon's Soul- An unforgiving dungeon crawler whose roots lie in the old King's Field series, and western RPGs such as Oblivion. Underground talk has this game pegged as THE sleeper hit of 09.

Final Fantasy XIII (Japan) - FXIII+ Japan= nuff said. Demo did major damage.

Now, that's just 09. Next year will see some old franchises and new ones...

Little Big Planet 2
Resistance 3
WarHawk 2
Team Ico
God of War 3
Gran Turismo 5
Killzone 3
$299.99 PS3
etc etc

Good day :)

thegood333150d ago

Is it just me or does Sam Fisher look like the main character from Condemned 2 (After he started hittin the whisky)

Dread3150d ago (Edited 3150d ago )

@sony rep

out of all those games which ones are coming this year, if at all.

and white night only got mediocre reviews.. so do not hold your breath. (i love factor five by the way, and hope the game kicks a$$, but reviews do not look good)

and final fantasy is also coming to the 360, did you get the memo. highlighting a game that is exclusive in Japan is just sad.

finally, is team ICO a game or a developer?

peace

cayal3150d ago

"(i love factor five by the way, and hope the game kicks a$$, but reviews do not look good)"

It's level 5 and reviews were from the same who gave HAze a good review wasn't it?

No Way3150d ago

True. I'm betting that they will show it off at E3.
At least, I hope they do! Ha.

No Way3150d ago (Edited 3150d ago )

Just because there are very few new exclusives comin out doesn't mean there's nothin to play..

There are still past exclusives that I have yet to pick up and play.
Just cause past exclusives are out, doesn't mean they don't count anymore..

But, I do agree.. The 'Future' exclusives are looking bad, and x360 owners need more. :)

MriownBOTH3150d ago

why do 17 people disagree with you?????

silly ps3 fanboys this game is only on 360 why are you in here?

Ausbo3149d ago

what do you mean we have nothing to play. Yes the 360 exclusive lineup is weak but there are plenty of multiplatform games coming out. have you ever heard of re5, codmw2, ac2 and more. exclusives aren't anything.

FamilyGuy3149d ago (Edited 3149d ago )

Magnacarta 2, Halo:ODST, Alan Wake and Lost Planet 2 (until they announce a port)

Someone has this already, i know it.

Can someone list the possible future 09 360 exclusives for me. I want a proper perspective as all i seem to hear is that 360 has nothing this year but multiplats. Whether thats true or not isnt my point, i just wanna see how far they get by the end of the year.

Well we know what game MS will be advertising like hell this christmas

iceice1233150d ago

Of course, it's Halo afterall.

Chuk_Chuk3150d ago

forgot about that. why did i think it was released already

talltony3150d ago

microsoft has a new exclusive for this year! I am seriously happy they announced this right now, I was getting worried!

There we go, and there will be more. : )

McMee3150d ago (Edited 3150d ago )

Last time I tried to talk about Microsoft exclusive games to possibly be displayed at the upcoming E3 this year, I was disagreed with like I had made the games up. Here is my list that I can come up with for exclusive 09 already, confirmed,or potential releases.

Xbox 360 Exclusives:
- Splinter Cell: Conviction
- Huxley
- Velvet Assassin
- Halo: ODST
- Halo Wars
- Champions Online
- Alan Wake
- SO 4
- Ninja Blade
- 2 possible Rare announcements
(Killer Instinct, Perfect Dark)
- Forza 3
- Project Gotham Racing
- Lost Planet 2 (for now)

So unlike some of the rediculous Sony representives would have you believe, Microsoft's 09 lineup has potential to be pretty good.

Dread3150d ago

@Mcmee

u better hide the list. You are in the Sony is god zone.

Chuk_Chuk3150d ago (Edited 3150d ago )

That MS may have pressured the devs to get this done quickly to have more exclusives for 2009?

@the guy below
Just cause it was announced long time doesn't mean the devs are ready to release it but i do get your point.

N4PS3G3150d ago (Edited 3150d ago )

This game was announced loooong time ago...they had time

" Guillemot also noted that the four-years-in-development Splinter Cell: Conviction will finally arrive for the Xbox 360 this holiday season"

TheColbertinator3150d ago

N4PS3G is right.This game has been in the oven since 2005

Why dis3150d ago (Edited 3150d ago )

I was going to say the same thing when they pushed it back they said the game will fall around the time that is stated in this info lol.

Looks like the 360 is already going to have one of the biggest blockbuster years ever.

Please PS3 fans let 360 fans enjoy this news.

EDIT. @3.6 Taken back to the drawing board in what regard? Engine, story, gameplay mechanics, art, all of the above? lol

EDIT @slave2Dcontroller Go make a list of the PS3 articles I'v been in and get back at me.

N4PS3G3150d ago (Edited 3150d ago )

4 years for a splinter cell game seems more than enough

Mike Wallace3150d ago

Thank you for the request. I'm looking forward to this game. They're written so well...

PirateThom3150d ago (Edited 3150d ago )

It was also taken back to the drawing board in 2008 (rumour has it, it didn't compare favourably to the likes of Assassin's Creed).

http://www.computerandvideo...

Edit: Disagreeing with fact is dumb.

Gamer_Politics3150d ago

MS did no have the devs rush up the release...i dont even know why that thought has pop'd in your head cant stand ubisoft games but i guess splinter cell is almost finish

slave2Dcontroller3150d ago

you have some nerves asking PS3 fans to let YOU enjoy the good news when you foul up every PS3 article that hits N4G.

I aint a hater so enjoy your news but try showin others the same damn respect you want.

Chuk_Chuk3150d ago

how did i ruin a 360fanboy special moment.

and TBF look at it the other way around it always happens on the PS3 difference is i didn't mention sales.

I did not murder him3150d ago

I don't get it we know that already. When the game releases the announced push back will be close to two years old. You don't know if the rework was in the works even before the push back announcement.

No Way3150d ago

No. Would MS even have the authority to do that?

even tho he was compared to snake i think...

but sam is not even in snake's league

SyphonFilter5 !!!!

Man_of_the_year3150d ago

I will take Sam over Snake anyday...

especially when there is more gameplay in a single Splinter cell game than there is in the entire MGS series...especially MGS4

TheColbertinator3150d ago

Sam would get slaughtered by Snake unfortunately.Snake is a freak and a direct clone of the ultimate soldier big boss.Its amazing how Snake could still survive after he got FOXDIE and had to get microwaved like a burrito.

Shane Kim3150d ago

Ofc you would man of the year, you only own a sh!tbox.

Snatcher3150d ago

You only own a Playstation 3.

Man_of_the_year3150d ago

Hey Kim

next time instead of opening your mouth and showing the world how ignorant you are...why don't you do a little research first...like in this case click on my bio and see that i own a PS3 and what my PSNID is...stupid typical ignorant sony fanboy.
