AusGamers Splinter Cell: Conviction Interview

In a video interview with AusGamers, Splinter Cell Associate Producer, Jean-Francois Poire is asked why the game was made exclusive to Microsoft.

He also talks about vision for the game, the new art-direction and just how dynamic the game-world will be for creative players.

From AusGamers:

AGN: Actually one last question: The decision to go exclusively with Xbox 360 and PC - was this just a deal you made with Microsoft? Did you choose to only go with those two platforms?

Jean-Francois: Well originally Splinter Cell was an exclusive title to Xbox, and with Conviction (the decision) really allowed us to work on the tech, get good support from Microsoft and really build something that will allow us to use all the tech that's available with the Xbox 360. So for us it was a good starting point to work with Microsoft on this title exclusively.

This is the reason I'm getting the 360 this looks so fun and it looks amazing nothing compares. SCC goes to E3 part 2 http://splintercell.us.ubi....

KionicWarlord2222964d ago

lol

Steven spielberg was impressed

phosphor1122964d ago

That it isn't coming to the PS3. Though hopefully maybe the 360 will have a flagship title that takes advantage of the 360. Maybe we can do proper comparisons after that instead of half-assed ports from either side.

Natsu X FairyTail2964d ago (Edited 2964d ago )

Why do Cooliris got so many disagrees?

You Can't disagree with him gettign a X360 for this game. This doesnt make no sense.

on topic: Im in Horror Game Mode @ the momment , Currently playing Silent Hill Homecoming(Scary) and will be playing a bunch of Old school Horror titles on my PS2 and GC the Whole summer!!!!! I'm really Hyped for SC:Conviction when it'll come it will be a change of the style im playing at the time.

ubisoft will do a great job with this title.

French to English: Well originally Splinter Cell was an exclusive title to Xbox, and with Conviction (the decision) really allowed us to work on the tech....

Original French: Money.

Seriously, I would say good job Ubisoft. Although I won't get to play it, because I only have a PS3, I would say its better if developers focus on one platform whenever possible. It helps makes games better, and us gamers are better off for it.

Natsu X FairyTail2964d ago (Edited 2964d ago )

dont say ''I won't get to play it because I have a PS3''

In my Case , I dont have a PS3 in my house but I'Ve played Almost every ps3 exclusives at Family and Friends houses over the past Year. I still have to play Infamous though.Not Owning the console live in your home isnt a good reason enough for you to not play this game . You can either get yourself a Xbox360 or Buy the Windows Games Version Or Play it at a friend house(Games are always more enjoyable when you play them with friends :) ) . It's your choice

And have to admit that this one is disappointing me. Sure it looks great and will more than likely play great but it is not Sam Fisher to me and seems to have taken the wrong path. I love the original and wish they would have done something more similar to that.

Looks amazing. Sound amazing. Will be in my Xbox 360 on day one. And its cool knowing the whole mark and Execute mechanics will be used in multiplayer also.

Tarasque2964d ago

MS thanks you either way son.......

Christopher2964d ago (Edited 2964d ago )

That tells me that this is likely a time exclusive for 360 and PC. Nothing they've said has pointed at it only being on the 360, only starting on the 360.

Seems likely we'll be seeing this on the PS3 6 to 12 months down the road, which is weird since it usually is better if they make the PS3 the primary and port it to the 360.

I'll probably get this for the 360 if I do get it right away.

Maybe Killjoy wondered into the wrong article?

Natsu X FairyTail2964d ago (Edited 2964d ago )

Do you even take the time to actually READ what you write before posting ?

you said that you will be to busy playing RE5 and all of the early 2010 PS3 exclusives!

RE5 been out for a Few months and All the Early 2010 PS3 exclusives shall be out IN 2010 and SplinterCell Coems out in 2009!!!! So How is that even Relevant to this Article? Plus nobody said that PS3 did not have games. You brung that to the table yourself.

Killjoy30002964d ago (Edited 2964d ago )

Did you even take the time to consider that RE5 was seperate from those PS3 exclusives? There is still a backlog of Multiplatform titles I have to get to. For example, I just picked up Prince of Persia. I was in no way making the incinuation that RE5 was either releasing later next year or is exclusive to PS3.

That is the old you're damned if you do damned if you don't. When developers don't mix things up people say this is the same game with a new coat of paint. When they do make changes you hear why change what works?

Personally I never really got into Splinter Cell in the past. I played a few but never finished one of them and that is a rarity for me because I usually finish every game I play. This game has me on the edge of my seat waiting for more information and anticipating it's release.

I like that Ubisoft gives the player the choice to play the game they way they choose. It appears to be a faster paced game with a lot of new gameplay elements. Now all I want to know is what type of online modes will there be.

Syronicus2964d ago (Edited 2964d ago )

I can see where you are coming from and agree that the game will be a good one just for the sake of it's developers and history but have to say, I loved what Splinter Cell was and still do. It would have been just as cool if they would have spit the game off as a new IP and then brought SC back to its roots. I know it's a long shot and a pipe dream but I just miss the SC of old.

I guess if wishes were horses, beggars would ride.

Jinxstar2964d ago

Maybe he got disagrees because it says its coming to PC as well(Read the article). Maybe it's ignorant fanboys. Maybe people don't think 1 game is worth buying a system for... No matter what it is though it's all up to him if he thinks it's worth it...

Christopher2964d ago (Edited 2964d ago )

My original statement said that from what they're saying this seems like a timed exclusive because they're talking about beginning this with the PC/360. I wonder if this will eventually make it to the PS3 because of this but otherwise will buy it for the 360 if I do buy it.

Mr Remington2964d ago

I can respect a developer that doesn't take their game multiplat to make it better. As long as they didn't get cash shoved up their asses by MS to keep it off of Playstation.

Jaces2964d ago

Bah, it's really because it's only possible on the 360.

lol, j/k :D

phosphor1122964d ago

Is it because I wished it would come to PS3? Or is it that I said its about time the 360 had games exclusive to the architecture of the system??

Raul_72964d ago

I just hope my core X360 wont die on me before playing this game.

mikeslemonade2964d ago

Obviously Microsoft has payed this team and made some sort of a deal to ubisoft to keep it exclusive. I have a 360 now and I got it because i'm away from home where my PS3 and Wii is located. I'm pretty happy that I got the 360. I always liked the controller over the dualshock 3. The game looks impressive and the gameplay looks amazing. However Uncharted 2 kills this game in the graphics and physics department. I've been out of the loop in gaming news but yesterday I saw both Uncharted 2 and Splinter Cell 5 previews. I watched Splinter Cell and was blown away that the 360 can do this and then I watched Uncharted 2 I was even more blown away.

shingo2964d ago (Edited 2964d ago )

"So for us it was a [b]good starting point[/b] to work with Microsoft on this title exclusively. "

To me, that sounds like it's a timed exclusive. Just watch and see it happening. This will follow the same route as Ninja Gaiden II's, Bioshock's, etc. But as for now, 360 owners have a really impressive game to play this fall :) As for me, I'm getting it on PC ;)

Bubble Buddy2964d ago

I'm a PS3 boy but this game is really looking crazy. Reminds me of Jason Bourne and that's awesome. I might have to camp out at my cousin's or friend's for a few days to play this :P

Gorgon2964d ago

Strange, I don't get why my comment was deleted by a mod. It was quite candid, in fact.

Go figure.

Nicely put. Nothing bad as said.

TheColbertinator2964d ago

Yeah seems like good strategy to me.Microsoft provided them with the dev kits and assistance in promotion

KionicWarlord2222964d ago (Edited 2964d ago )

Game`s going to be a nice ride.

hulk_bash19872964d ago (Edited 2964d ago )

He is right about the question being answered w/out any backhanded comments about the opposite camp (unlike turn10 against polyphony).

Kind of like why Kojima decided to go PS3 only with MGS4 to take advantage of the hardware.

With that said i cant wait for this game, Definitely one of my most anticipated games of 09.

hulk_bash19872964d ago

Indeed it is my friend, indeed it is. Which is why I happily own both consoles.

ShabzS2964d ago (Edited 2964d ago )

... bottom line: this game is going to rock and we get to play it ...

the rest can still play it on the pc ... so try it on that ... dont let "the microsoft hate" let you miss out on a great game

Jinxstar2964d ago

Even as a huge PS3 fan I can agree that it was a well worded statement. He's a good PR guy.
