Ubisoft recently held a live-chat session on its Facebook page with fans where it took out time to field questions from the fans and provide answers. One of the being the game's length.
wow lots of hours with Co op and VS mode too it'll be worth the money no more delays
is this on top of the 6 hours for co op story?
i think they said SP = 12 hours Co op = 4 hours Denial Ops = more Replay value
Splinter Cell games have always been a good length.
Fisher reminds me of Jack Bauer ... and that's awesome.
360 owners are in for a real treat with this one!
So are PC gamers... Can't wait to play it in native 1080p.
Sounds fair to me!
Nice, sounds pretty lengthy to me. SC is my early pick for my personal XB GotY. Cant wait.
I presume he meant people that play games on a Microsoft platform are in for a real treat Ceekay. Just saying. Why do people feel the need to remind us that they will not play a game on the 360 but will play it on the PC? Its all MS so its all the same sh*t.
People seem to forget Windows is a Microsoft platform. They disagree because they just can't handle the truth.
It's been proven that MS does not get any royalties from the PC version. Saying a 360/PC game is 360 exclusives is as stupid as saying it's PC exclusive. Get my point?
That`s like saying in my store I don`t make money selling a PS3 or a 360, which is true, but I make money when people buy a magazine, movie, game, controler...yadda yadda yadda. Business is hard. However I do get your point Saaking, you want to spin the fact that 95% PC gamers play games on a MS platform, cause that sh*t really matters right? But at the end of the day, in the background, you have Windows.
Got some links to back that up? Either way it isn't about royalties. Conviction is made for Windows OS, hence the "Games for Windows". Having people switch to windows/stay with windows, which is a Microsoft OS, is the ultimate goal for Microsoft and in the end they continue to win. "Microsoft Exclusive" plain and simple. Microsoft may not see a dime for games made for windows but they still get people to play those games ON windows. Microsoft just can't win with you guys huh? Try to cater to their Windows and Xbox audience, you all say they have no exclusives yadda ya. Try to do what you all want and make true 360 exclusives like Alan Wake and you all then say they don't care about the PC audience. Sheesh
If you've been following the game, the 360 version actually has the upper hand here. Not only does it have an exclusive Limited Edition, but it has more in-game content.
Don't be ignorant,it is not required for any developer to pay royalties to Microsoft for them to have the "games for windows labels", the requirements are on the wiki page.The reason they do have that label is that Microsoft holds such a huge share of the software OS market that developers believe they will see more profit by having the label on. Microsoft gets easy promotion for its OS this way. Even though there are obviously more OS'S out there the only ones really promoted are games for mac and windows even though a person can technically make even Linux run those same games. Anyway I see that the flame war continues on this site as it does everyday *sighs*
stupid plain and simple it's a ms exclusive whether it's on xbox 360 or pc, your money will go to the same company I really find it humiliating to say this excuse, cause in the end it will make you look stupid, so stupid,especially if you deciding to buy a multiplat game on ps3, while pc version is better you all got high end pcs eh, why won't you get all your games on pc then???? oh well they use it just as a painkiller "only on xbox 360" sticker must hurt them so bad my comment look insulting but that's the truth im sorry and if you really wanna buy it on your good pc, then go ahead and enjoy the hell out of it anyway, conviction day 1 buy
Well of all the Xbox 360 coming out, this is the one I want the most. Sorry Mass Effect 2, you are in second place. I have been so sick of simple shooters, and Uncharted 2 really won me over. I look at this as the 360's U2. And just like Uncharted 2, there's no one who truly believes this game looks to be anything less than totally awesome. Everything about Conviction is stellar, the prequel story of co-op, the denied ops, the story, the art, the awesome TIP system, the badass combat style(Very arkham asylum how you can switch from action to stealth on the fly). I hope that everyone gets this game. Because this is going to be the best Splinter Cell to date.
Xbox 360 = Splinter Cell Conviction = 1 DVD9 = 12-16 Hours + Multiplayer = EPIC WINNER PS3 = God Of War 3 = 1 Blue Ray Disc = +25 Gig = 10 HOURS - Multiplayer = EPIC FAIL
i got 1 word for droids Ouch
lul i hope you arent implying a 200 hour grindfest is better than a 10 hour action packed game. quality > quantity
Nice to see you pick a game that is not in the same genre as Splintercell, now lets try again without trying to be a bias douche. Xbox 360 = Splinter Cell Conviction = 1 DVD9 = 12-16 Hours + Multiplayer = ???* Ps3 = Metal Gear Solid 4 = 1 Duel Layer Blu-ray = 20 hours + Metal Gear Solid Online = 94% metacritic score = Awesome! *i left it as question marks because the game is not out yet and no one has played it, so no fair judgement can be made until it releases.
They said it to be OVER 10 hours ok?
but but teh Blu-ray is needed for games
And they said brains are needed to think... Jason 360, proving everyone wrong one by one.
Then why is Final Fantasy broken because of your stupid DVD breakbox? Why cant Failza have all the cars on one disc? Why is Mass Effect on two discs? Why cant metal Gear Solid 4 be made on the Xbox? Why will Final Fantasy use compressed audio on Xbox? Pathetic Bot, use ur dam brain please. "Bu Bu Bu DVD is enough" LOL
B-b-b-b-but PS3 exclusives looks by far the best this gen.
GOW3 has high res textures and many things packed in the bluray. It will be even better than Uncharted 2 which won the best graphics award in 2009.
As far as I've seen in the video's or play through the GOWIII demo on my PS3, Uncharted 2 looks a lot better. And yes I know GOWIII demo is an old build. Still the total package of textures, physics and every aspect to how a game looks, Uncharted 2 kicks GOWIII in the nutsack. Oh I am pre ordering GOWIII ultimate trilogy EU edition, so don't say I hate the game.
Mart, you have seen correctly. I was not impressed with the textures, but the scale was impressive... especially at the end when you are flying up the tunnel. I am going to reserve my thoughts on the graphics until I play the game. But, looking at what Santa Monica did on the PS2 with GOW2... I am expecting nice results.
Santa monica have mentioned that the game has been given graphical improvements since the e3 demo, and if HHG can be taken for his word( probably not) it will look as good as UC2 or better.
"It will be even better than Uncharted 2 which won the best graphics award in 2009." No, it won't.
is it just me or we are having a lot of news with "this game will have -insert number- hours of gameplay"? :P
Combined? that means.. the SP alone is 8-9 hours?
What they are saying I beleive is the SP is about 12 hours and the rest makes up the balance of 16 hours. If thats the case that is quite long for a game of this type. Most games now that are 1st and 3rd person are around the 7-10 hour range
i like to sometimes restart chapters and go about them different ways. sometimes full commando. sometimes uber ninja. what i always loved about SC games is the variety in which you can tackle a given task.
this translates too 8~10 hours for us gamers.
speak for urself i have a life
"I have a life" What exactly does that mean? Do indulge us won't you? What is the definition of a "life"?
Everyone's got a life, what has that got to do with the game length? You don't have to complete it in one sitting, I won't. But it's still better to have a game with a lot of content. Would you prefer it if it was 4 hours worth of game?
Not suprised. It always take 10 mins to go across a room in SC.
Well it is a stealth game. Try Track and Field if you want something a bit faster.
Stealth isn't run and gun across the room
Try this: 1) ask a friend to stand at the other side of the living room. 2) dim the light and try sneaking up on him/her. experiment: Situation 1) stick 3 glowing lightbulbs on your head and slowly crouch-walk to his/her location in a straight line. Situation 2) wear a cool bandana and walk fast/run using covers to hide. -----
Or try this Devil, as a wise man once said to me - "Try fitting your head up your ass, and see if it fits" It makes as much sense as you are.
Awesome, some amazing 360 exclusives out this year :)
AHAHAHAHAH you made a joke,how nice of you botty mc botster :) ...EXAAAACTLY....
“Game length and story (SP and COOP combined) should run between 12 and 16 hours" 6 hours for campaign and 6 hours for co-op = 12 hours. The campaign is short.
Down play this game play length claim, yet praise GoW 10hr+ dev claim without MP. Typical, what a mundane and boring life you must have, to feed on other peoples hate for you. /golfclap As I was reminded in the GoW 10hr+ news, that is more then enough time for a game, even more so if you have a good MP experience.
Call me whatever you want. I only spoke the truth, which you can't seem to handle. Edit: Again, call me what you want. If attempting to insult me makes you feel good about yourself then have at it.
Oh, I can handle the truth. Sadly, you can`t show it. Also, I didn`t even call you anything, because lets face it, you are nothing. Just another predictable anonymous N4G user, flamebaiting.
“Game length and story (SP and COOP combined) should run between 12 and 16 hours… With Denial Ops, it will be interesting to see how replay value players can get out of it!” Why are you only factoring in the lowest number of playtime? Why not the 16 hours of playtime? That would be an 8 hour campaign and an 8 hour co-op campaign. That's more gameplay than the majority of games that come out.
he would Arnon, but sadly his mind does not understand logic like normal people, he is a character, in his own little movie where makers of consoles are big robots who fight in the sky. And the battlefield is comments sections on the internet. Sad really.
Thank You. You made my Friday with that last comment!!! Cheers.
All thx to Blu-Ray.
hopefully it is 12-16 hours, that would be the ideal length. Lets hope that is single player and not all combined.
cant wait to play as Jason Bourne...i meant Sam Fisher lol
I seem to have missed the boat on the entire Splinter Cell series. I will definitely give this one a look, though. It looks fantastic. I'm going to be so broke
got my gameinformer, and theres NO merc vs spy WTF dat really blows. i liked double agent mainly 4 da merc vs spy wishin they pused back to add it
MAss Effect 2 is already on UC2 lvl.
Show me one gaming Website that says that or I am afraid I will have to take that comment as your opinion.
will look better than all
ya killzone is good at looking good. not much more
Nice and long. Cool!
really? Mass effect 3 too And Gears of War 3 also! and dont forget Halo 4 and 5! You should also mention uncharted3 and 4.. lol ...... STUPID DDDRRROOOIDHEADS
You and your user name take stupid to the next level.
they won't be sequels to ME or GeOw because the 360 is getting discontinued this year ;) and what do you mean by Halo 4 & 5 that's already been released, it's called- HALO WARS: Where the hell are my stats? HALO ODST: Will it work in my flopbox?
and i bet you look in reallife like your avatar.. thats why you are 24 hours here on n4g.
