There's a whole host of delays coming out of today's Ubisoft investor update, but this is the one that'll likely hurt the most: Splinter Cell: Conviction has been moved from the fourth quarter of 2009 to the first quarter of 2010.
Is it REALLY a duplicate story? The other one is just the financials for the quarter. I think that this piece of information that was buried inside the financial report is worth having its own headline so that passers-by catch it. A lot of people don't care about sales and won't be particularly interested to examine a financial report. People waiting for this game will want to know it's delayed, and if they don't read some arbitrary financial report article they're not going to find out? I think a separate article highlighting this information deserves to go through, personally.
about u approve?
No one is interested in actually getting news to gamers around here. I had the same thing happen last week. Posted an article about 360 sales since the price cut and it failed twice by people too lazy to read it, stating it was a dupe of Microsoft fiscal update. Finally had to have the mods step in and reinstate the article. Same thing's going on here. Sure this tidbid was buried in the fiscal update, but let's use some common sense here, people. Clearly the delay is newsworthy and warrants mention on it's own. Let's worry about getting news to gamers, which is what this site is supposed to be about.
DOTY 2009 Delay of the Year Haaah Suck it up BoTs
Ubisoft games are boring anyway.
kinda makes you wonder if they were afraid to go head to head with assassin's creed... Personally, I'm not expecting much from SC, what is this, like the 2nd or 3rd time its been delayed?
*Thy silly little Droid*
When console A's exclusive gets delayed, console B's fans like to make fun. But that's ok, because console A's exclusive will be more polished and better for it in the end. This applies both ways.
they already dont have games this year this is either very bad for them or they think they can effect GOD3 sales by launching the same month typical MS sneaking coward tactics keep there fans waiting not for any reason but money not quality . lol sir ken bubbles totally cracked me up XD
Sad day...Sad day...
Yep, it sucks. This year's line up has certainly gone downhill with all the delays. That leaves my pre-Christmas list as Left4Dead2, Uncharted 2 and possibly Modern Warfare 2.
I would be indeed sad if I only had a 360. But, I have a PS3 and PC too so I'm ok with it. A lot of other great games to play while this 1 comes
Damn Kionic I thought you were just speculating before. So basically the only two games I actually cared about for my 360 are coming in 2010. ...and people call the PS3 delaystation...sigh...oh well hopefully Uncharted 2 and Ratchet should tide me over.
What's up with that? Oh well, we'll just have to wait a bit longer then.
So what's everyone's revised winter 09 shopping list now the delays have hit full force?
omfg nooo! what the hell is going on with all the delays??? '09 is starting to suck hard. there's only a few gems left to come this year now like CoD MW2 and Uncharted 2. EDIT: @ above Need For Speed: Shift 09/22/09 *Halo 3: OSDT (X360) 09/22/09 Dark Void 09/22/09 Borderlands 10/20/09 *Uncharted 2 (PS3) 10/13/09 Modern Warfare 2 11/10/09 *Left 4 Dead 2 (X360) 11/17/09 Assassins Creed 2 11/17/09 Lost Planet 2 12/09 *WarDevil: Unleash the Best Within (PS3) *Diablo III (PC) and the first 2 i might not even get. that list sucks so hardcore now compared to the first half of '10.
2010 looks absolutely insane for Microsoft. I've never seen a better lineup of games for a console. Microsoft is ending this year and starting next with a bang. Forza Motorsport 3, Halo 3 ODST, Left 4 Dead 2, Ballad of Gay Tony. Those games alone will sell a couple millions, and next year stuff like Splinter Cell, Alan Wake, Mass Effect 2 will obliterate the competition. Good strategy by Microsoft.
the rest of 2009 us looking to be very meh for me i can't think of 1 upcoming 360 game i actually want same goes for the ps3 not 1 upcoming game i want only the wii has upcoming games i want (3rd party)but seeing how things are lately those are gonna get delayed as well at least i still have allot of old games to catch up on
1 Uncharted2 2. Ratchet 3. GT5(still hoping it comes out this year, im not spending 60 bucks to race 8 cars and $350 for a new steering wheel that only works on 1 device) 4. L4D2(ill dl the 50mb patch) 5. MW2 6. NFS Shift 7. AC2 (if the reviews are good)
If you mean the Fanatec Porsche 911 S? It is compatible with the 360, PS3 and PC.
I have to buy another wheel to use just for the 360. For $350 dollars to use for the 360. Bringing my purchase of Forza3 to $410 dollars. which isn't worth it. At all. Good to know I could use the wheel on the pc/ps3 though. Hopefully the G27 will work on the 360 as well, then F3 will be used no doubt.
Who has the better lineup this winter...
if GT5 is coming out this winter, Sony..
Wow, another delay. The 360's lineup is pretty weak now in my opinion. It's ok, better than the Wii's, but worse than the PS3's. The only game that interests me now on the 360 is Halo 3 ODST and even that is not a game I am dying to play. Looking at the lineups for the entire year it's even more apparent that the PS3's is better/ Killzone 2, Infamous, MLB The Show, Demon's Souls, Ratchet & Clank CIT and Uncharted 2 vs Halo Wars, Halo 3 ODST, Forza 3, Left 4 Dead 2 I am not adding in all the dinky crappy games or downloadable games or expansions, just the big good games. The PS3 lineup is far better in my opinion. Left 4 Dead 2 really isn't even an exclusive to me because I play Left 4 Dead 2 on the PC and think of it as a PC game. But even adding that game onto the list, the 360 lineup isn't that impressive to me. Just sayin...
I can understand not wanting to shell out the extra cash for the Fanatec when you already have a force feedback setup. A couple of my friends think I am a little crazy for doing it but I want to play Forza 3 with a really good wheel. I just hope it's worth it. I have the Logitech G25/ Playseat Evolution combo for the PS3 and it's an awesome setup. I am pumped for the Fanatec wheel because of the belt driven force feedback. Plus it has rumble in the wheel and pedals (at an extra cost for the Clubsport). From the user feedback of people that have tried the Porsche 911 S say that the force feedback feels more realistic than the G25. I hope the G27 works for both as well. If the G27 does work for both I will swap out my G25 and have 2 wheels and c0ckpits for driving games.
By the time these delays are over, we won't have any quality games to play until next year. What's next? Uncharted 2? Assassins Creed 2? Let's hope not. This year initially had so many (possible) AAA titles releasing that many wondered where to get the money to purchase them all. Now even a hobo can buy the titles we're left with in 09. Oh well, at least MW2 will get plenty of play time.
It's just one/two games. Im getting: Uncharted 2 Ratchet Ninja Gaidan Sigma 2 Demons souls Bayonetta Fat Princess (this week!) GT5 (if it releases this year) Lost Planet 2 (if it releases this year on PS3) I MIGHT get: Assassins Creed 2 Tekken 6 Brutal Legend (releases the same day as UC2 according to ign http://ps3.ign.com/objects/... )
Yes all the delays are sad and yes it is ruining the year, but it's also opening place for a lot of good games, like Brutal Legend and Borderlands, which don't have the attention and hype they deserve, also I can now get games like Batman:AA and the two stated above cause the games I wanted were delayed, I still have UC2,of course lol, and AC2 which looks very promising, might get Halo ODST, never played a Halo so I don't know but looks promising, and the Downloadable games like Trine, Fat Princess, and Shadow Complex...also got games like Demon's Soul and WKC, also now I can actually concentrate on LBP, and all the awesome downloadable content it's getting
lolll you can dream about diablo 3 coming out this year XD
Lariat's comment made me post a lol, it was just 2 much. (Btw not hatting on MS or the 360, but u dont have to be smart to really disagree with hes statement)
Wow. This was honestly the only 360 exclusive I planned to buy this year if the reviews held it 8+ from big name sites. So many games I was just thinking of renting are now possible buys for me with this news. Uncharted 2(buy) MAG(If reviews hold up to 8+ then buy) Modern Warfare 2(If the online isn't just more of the same with dedicated servers then buy) Persona for PSP(buy) The games I was going to rent list is smaller now too since Bayonetta got pushed back, and the other buy was Bioshock 2 which got pushed back. Rent List: Assassin's Creed 2 Resonance of Fate Ninja Gaiden 2 Sigma Black Ratchet and Clank Now that I look at this list all in all it seems the only end year game that matters is Uncharted 2, because it's my only guaranteed buy. Judging from the list and what has already come out guess game of the year is going to get handed to it, but it could get some real competition from Killzone 2 or inFAMOUS seeing how bleak this year is as a whole.
we have this to look forward to: Halo 3: ODST Forza Motorsport 3 ***Splinter Cell: Conviction*** Left 4 Dead 2 Darkest of Days Risen Magna Carta 2 section 8 Ninty Nine Knights 2 Kingdom Under Fire II Shadow complex Champions online Raven squad GTA: The Ballad of Gay Tony (+ 'GTA: Episodes from Liberty City' standalone disc) Lips: Number One Hits Raiden IV
My Christmas has definitely been ruined... well, if this rumor is true, that is.
but Ubi is releasing AC2 around the same time. so, moving SC to a later date is better IMO! but delays still suck!
Not to sound like a fanboy or anything but I could'nt help but notice how many people explained that a release date is essential and of utmost importance. Well...now you see why it's not, you only get dissapointment. I'd rather have a game be announced when it's done and not throw some numbers out to satisfy the mob. Rants over, and it seems this year is opening up for a lot more playing time which is excellent. To many games this late in the year would be a disaster for me, I wouldn't know which to buy. :D
I wonder if all these delays are because developers want to take advantage of the new dev kit with the extra 512 Mb.
The Delays are because MODERN WAREFARE 2 . I want bobby kotick`s head on spit .
with all these delays our wallets won't be getting hit as hard and we can still have a social life instead of starting up new games pretty much every week starting mid Sept :) the same can't be said about 2010 tho, 09-10 is a good time to be a gamer.
I was so excited for Splinter Cell Convinction this year. Oh well. Might have to get my "action game" fix from Uncharted 2 then, bummer./not sarcasm
Games i am getting for sure this year are, Uncharted 2 PS3 Tekken 6 PS3 NinjaGaiden2Sigma PS3 GT5 PS3 [if it comes out] Bayonetta PS3 [ heard it got delayed is it true???] Halo ODST 360 NNN3 Part2 360 [I am one of the few people that liked Part 1] Assassin's Creed 2 360 [ AC1 PS3 version was really bad] Splinter Cell C 360 [ oh well next year].
Uncharted 2 and Modern Warfare 2... Well, at least my wallet won't suffer.
If G27 is rumor to come out with GT5 is true then there is a high chance it will only work with Playstation/PC. I hope all these games getting delay isn't because of MW2.
the only xbox game i care about this year too. lol. ah well, i have a few to catch up on anyway. DELAYSTATION!
i hope this is not true. i wanna play some splinter cell this year. choooooooo
Its true man... http://www.videogamer.com/n...
"The most recent delay for the release date, however, which was reported on July 27th, 2009, which stated that the game would be pushed back into the first quarter of 2010 was an elaborate hoax." This is coming from Wikipedia. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
It has since been updated. Delay confirmed.
First Alan Wake and now this... What's going on? Development issues or everyone afraid of MW2
Modern warefare 2 .
Modern Welfare 2. Red Steel 2 slipped also.
All games are afraid of Modern Warfare 2, except Uncharted 2 lol.. Oh man, these two games will made my year..
Even Uncharted 2 is afraid of MW2. Don't you ever wonder why Uncharted 2 is releasing in October instead of the usual November? They're not releasing in October because they love us gamers. It's cause Sony doesn't want their games fighting with Infinity Ward's games. Sony moves up Uncharted 2 to maximize console/game sales as much as possible.
i haven't heard ND speak about being "afraid" of MW2. it's funny.........everyone (including me) wants games released sooner. but when they do.....there are people who make comments like the one above. and fantasy star, halo:ODST is releasing in sept. wow! that game must be TERRIFIED of MW2, huh?.........END SARCASM. dude, just be happy were not getting EVERY game released in november. i'm tired of that crap. edit: good point raztad! of course that's why UBI is delaying it. kind of like what sony did last year with delaying KZ2 so it wouldn't be launching so close to resistance 2.
Usual november? I dont get that, you make it sound like this is the iteration 4 o 5 of UC. I quite understand Ubisoft decision, and makes a lot of sense if you stop and think about it. Remember that november got not only MW2, it has AC2 as well and L4D2 for Pc/360. Probably Conviction is too crude for august/september release, octuber is one of a hell packaged, november is for MW2 and another title form Ubi itself. I doubt Ubi wants Coviction takes away AC2 spotlight so fast, so december is for AC2 to sell. Pros for Ubi, Conviction gets more polishing time, cons: they fail miserably after promising a 2009 release.
I don't think anyone wants to contend with MW2 at this point. Sales of that game will be ridiculous.
Good points Raztad fella. Add to your AC2 stuff the thing I was thinking. AC2 and the link up to the new PSP AC game is something they don't want to move as it will be two games almost in abundle getting lots of hype from Sony(who, for some reason, DO advertise PSP stuff)to push the PSPGO!, imo. This made SCC the easier to move-and also as MS and Ubi have always made sure that SCC would be a decent game and took lots of care they just WILL NOT risk hurting the franchise with little risks when they could play it safe. Thye didn't scrap it once to mess it up now and also, after DA the AC franchise is prolly bigger to Ubi right now that SC is. Red Steel2, on the other hand, just cannot be finished. Also, as a disgusted UK gamer I will NOT be getting MW2(well not in my nation at that price anyway-preowned at a guess unless IW speak out to say Acti are out of order then I might import it)so I'm hoping that MAG might still be pre Xmas-I like the look of it much better myself in any case and, personally, I don't see how avoiding MW2 by a month or two would help. People will just be on the MP then anyway so FPS games should ignore MW2 as it'll sell strongly for aaages. If you're scared of it make a different kind of game and remember that the rubbish WaW sold more than the sainted COD4 anyway so the market is mental. I also think that the games being delayed make Xmas look more and more like a very, very good time for Sony to let PD drop Gt5. If they can add the slim/pice cut then all the better for them as well-whatever it does look like an opportinoty for them if they have the ability to do one or both.
...Twitter and FaceBook, i need to do something on my ChatBox 360 this year!!! ;-D
Um...Ken...you better be prepared. I think I heard a mob of 360 fanboys coming. o.o
Actually the bots still have 1 great game to play; it's called Sales Master Chief.
Shut up you PS3 fanatics! Sales are way more fun to play than games and if you weren't such Sony fanboys you would see that/ sarcasm

wow, not even a xbox360 fanboy reply in here since Sir Ken say that? 1- theyr not here 2- theyr crying in the dark .. i guess
It isn't really a duplicate story since the info is buried but someone is obviously worried the 360 just took a major holiday shot to the sales department...
Hopefully they use the time to polish the game, and maybe add some new goodies for the fans. Its a shame that bioshock 2 was delayed to 2010 as well dam MW2.
more polishing does it need? its been worked on for 4 years now. remember this was supposed to be out x-mas 06.
and it looks well.. Heres to next year!
