wow lots of hours with Co op and VS mode too

it'll be worth the money

no more delays

Blaze9293220d ago

is this on top of the 6 hours for co op story?

Bungie3220d ago

i think they said

SP = 12 hours
Co op = 4 hours
Denial Ops = more Replay value

JasonPC360PS3Wii3220d ago

Splinter Cell games have always been a good length.

Ghostsmoker3220d ago

Fisher reminds me of Jack Bauer ... and that's awesome.

deadreckoning6663220d ago

360 owners are in for a real treat with this one!

BYE3220d ago (Edited 3220d ago )

So are PC gamers...

Can't wait to play it in native 1080p.

Bathyj3220d ago

Nice, sounds pretty lengthy to me.

SC is my early pick for my personal XB GotY. Cant wait.

Montrealien3220d ago

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.

-MD-3220d ago (Edited 3220d ago )

People seem to forget Windows is a Microsoft platform.

They disagree because they just can't handle the truth.

Saaking3220d ago

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?

Montrealien3220d ago (Edited 3220d ago )

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.

Blaze9293220d ago (Edited 3220d ago )

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.

Crimsonite3220d ago (Edited 3220d ago )

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*

ape0073220d ago (Edited 3220d ago )

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

A Cupcake for Gabe3220d ago

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

Bungie3220d ago

i got 1 word for droids


tdrules3220d ago

lul i hope you arent implying a 200 hour grindfest is better than a 10 hour action packed game.

quality > quantity

Noctis Aftermath3220d ago (Edited 3220d ago )

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.

JasonPC360PS3Wii3220d ago

but but teh Blu-ray is needed for games

Pennywise3220d ago

And they said brains are needed to think... Jason 360, proving everyone wrong one by one.

W831SOLIDSNAKE3220d ago

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

OmarJA-N4G3220d ago

B-b-b-b-but PS3 exclusives looks by far the best this gen.

Karooo3220d ago

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.

TheMART3220d ago

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.

Pennywise3220d ago

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.

Noctis Aftermath3220d ago

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.

-MD-3220d ago

"It will be even better than Uncharted 2 which won the best graphics award in 2009."

No, it won't.
