OXM UK: Ubisoft's financial statement has confirmed that long-delayed Xbox 360 exclusive Splinter Cell: Conviction exists and will be released at Christmas.
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
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.
Oooooooohhh yeaaaahhhhhhh!!!! Good news for X360 owners.
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.
This is the next game I`ll be getting for 360 (most likely).
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.
FINALLY!!! you guys deserved it and hope you guys enjoy it!! congrats..
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.
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.
It's about freaking time. I was beginning to think they forgot or ditched this title!
@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 :)
Is it just me or does Sam Fisher look like the main character from Condemned 2 (After he started hittin the whisky)
@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$$, but reviews do not look good) and final fantasy is also coming to the 360, did you get the memo. highlighting a game that is exclusive in Japan is just sad. finally, is team ICO a game or a developer? peace
"(i love factor five by the way, and hope the game kicks a$$, 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?
True. I'm betting that they will show it off at E3. At least, I hope they do! Ha.
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. :)
why do 17 people disagree with you????? silly ps3 fanboys this game is only on 360 why are you in here?
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.
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
Of course, it's Halo afterall.
forgot about that. why did i think it was released already
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. : )
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.
@Mcmee u better hide the list. You are in the Sony is god zone.
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.
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"
N4PS3G is right.This game has been in the oven since 2005
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.
4 years for a splinter cell game seems more than enough
Thank you for the request. I'm looking forward to this game. They're written so well...
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.
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
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.
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 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. 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 !!!!
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
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.
Ofc you would man of the year, you only own a sh!tbox.
You only own a Playstation 3.
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.
I was wondering what happen to this title. Been a Splinter Cell fan from the beginning. The last game was the same old motions, but this game might turn things around for the series.
YES!!!! Ive been waiting to hear about this game for so long.
but seriosuly this is long overdue, and I hope it rocks unlike the recent PoP and Assassins Creed games.
Time to fire up the 'ol paper weight I guess. If its good. If it isn't, no one will care about it. And ubisoft have been putting out a lot of trash lately.
this is the best news for today I hope that the game will be great as the other series
WOW, i totally forgot about this game, great that is coming this year. but i wont get my hopes up.
It's hard to get excited when it's had confirmed release windows postponed time and time again at this point. But, hopefully it sticks this time, otherwise the project risks being rebooted or scrapped altogether.
what the hell Ubisoft has been reworking or doing to this game? This is good news because its coming soon but what changes have they made, if any? Only respond if you have true facts PLEASE!
i think ubisoft changed around the whole story along with gameplay features
Thats what I was hoping to hear. Good New Indeed! XDDDDD
So....this holiday huh, well sound like a great time...
And aren't you fanboys yourself fleet fox? not just all fanboys suck seriously...
And I am a fan of my console but I don't go around in *threads of the opposite console, that I don't even own* pretending like PS3 has all these games and XBox 360 has nothing lol. PS3 fanboys are desperate and in last place with almost 250 or so less games to play on their platform. They aren't tricking anyone. They are just desperate fools. And there will be announcing more games at E3.
"PS3 fanboys are desperate and in last place with almost >250< or so less games to play on their platform." You realise as soon as you mentioned numbers you technically look like a 360 fanboy right. (thats my opinion anyway*awaits disagrees*) BTW in all honesty how many retail games that will be announced at E3 do u expect to be released this year? If a game was to be realeased this year i think the're will quite a few trailers by now, phantom screenshots and gameplay vids. The odd rumour going around from apparent devs.
And you're not a fanboy? Oh the Irony strikes me. :D
Wow fleet fox I really don't have enough games to play on my PS3. Is saying 250 games a bad thing? No it's not - I probably will never own that many PS3 games (though I probably own that many games in total lol). For now, Sony still have the edge in terms of console exclusives this year. Do you like to discount KZ2 because of whatever reason? I really enjoyed it thank you very much. Many of the games you listed were announced recently for Japan - they are aimed at that market. You can hardly have a go at PS3 games for not selling when you list niche Japanese titles in your "stellar 360 lineup". Microsoft CERTAINLY aren't giving people many reasons to buy a 360. Most of these games are coming out on PC, or in the case of splinter cell there's no reason it would stay exclusive other than it was announced that way and they may have some kind of deal. Even this article admits that it may still come out next year rather than this. Uncharted 2/Infamous/KZ2 already beats the 360's lineup (as it stands now). The very fact that you mentioned two expansions shows this. I don't care that the GTA4 DLC is 15 hours long; it's just more GTA4 and well, I don't own the game anyway. Halo 3: ADHD is going to do very well, we all know this - but it's still just more Halo. And if you stop thinking from a sales perspective and start thinking from a gameplay perspective, more of the same isn't as good as brand new games. Now, I'm with you that Sony's lineup isn't tremendously spectacular, but there are some potentially great games there, and it beats the 360's lineup certainly. Heavy Rain is a niche title for instance. GoW3 and GT5 won't come out until next year. MAG will be a flop. But you're completely forgetting that many of the 360's games won't be all they were hyped up to be. One of Alan Wake and Splinter Cell may bomb. We've already seen games like Halo Wars and Ninja Blade get mixed reviews. It's kind of sad that Microsoft have got into the position where they can just turn out the same old crap and their loyal fanboys will still defend them and refuse to buy another console because "they've got all the games they need on theirs". Last year the PS3 beat the 360 in terms of game lineup - now you may feel differently to me but I loved Wipeout HD, the two Pixeljunk games, the Warhawk expansion, Motorstorm: Pacific Rift, Valkyria Chronicles, Resistance 2, MGS4, LittleBigPlanet. Those last two especially blew anything the 360 had out of the water. The PS3's lineup probably WILL turn out better than the 360's this year. Whether the media recognise this, and whether it will translate into sales, is yet to be seen however.
I'd rather have 10-15 quality games, than 250 you're in the movies, lips, banjo kazooies, ninja blades, race pros, etc. If you're going to argue about games, at least bring up the good games on the 360. Gears 2, Forza 2... ummm... Gears 1. And the other titles that doesn't come to mind right now.
I started playing Double Agent the other day. So many ways to take enemies down.
So much fun. By the way, props to the avatar. Loved that album. Listen to it the other day...again. ^_^
off topic....but Black on Both Sides is one of my favorite albums of all time, and fyi check Talibs new album "Eardrum" f'in dope.
