Ubisoft reiterate "Splinter Cell Conviction is exclusive to Xbox 360"

The Lost Gamer writes:

Over the past couple of weeks rumour has continually speculated that the Xbox 360 title, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction, is to make its way onto Sony's PlayStation 3 console.

Today however, Ubisoft have aimed to kill such rumour by reiterating that the title is exclusive to Microsoft's console, and will be only making its way to PC.

..wait, wait, wait. This headline seems oddly familiar. It's on the tip of my tongue almost as if I've heard th... Ah yes, now I remember.

"2K Games reiterate Bioshock is 100% exclusive to Xbox 360"

renegade3129d ago

Yeah and was a made up.

SnuggleBandit3129d ago

Im guessing they are gonna pull a "Splinter cell sigma conviction" on this one...

StanLee3129d ago (Edited 3129d ago )

They'll look like idiots with eggs on the faces when it is released on PS3 next Spring. The tweet doesn't even make any sense; it's exclusive to XBox 360 but the PC version will be released next week. Hilarity.

Tony-A3129d ago (Edited 3129d ago )

For now....

until the PC (Games for Windows) version..... then it'll be exclusive to 360 and GFW..... until Steam..... then it'll be exclusive to 360, GFW and Steam.... until....

See where I'm going?

Besides, I don't think there has ever been a multiplatform game like BioShock. That rumor was shot down more than any other game I've ever seen (on par with MGS4, but that stayed exclusive) yet still ended up on Sony's console.

After that day, I haven't believed publishers/developers. Especially when they go back and forth like Ubi and 2K have.

Persistantthug3129d ago (Edited 3129d ago )

Bringing this game to the PS3 will render similar results as Bioshock 1.

When developers try to capitalize on the PS3's sizable userbase, and treat them as second class citizens, so to speak, their game typically gets treated second class...I call it THE BIOSHOCK TREATMENT.

Splinter Cell isn't even that great of a game....lesser of a game than Bioshock, in fact.

So, I hope Microsoft's money incentives and the 360/PC sales is enough for Ubiosoft, because for the most part,
that's all they are gonna get.

raztad3129d ago


I sorta agree. Unless it receives the Sigma treatment=720p, better visuals + more content (MERC vs SPIES perhaps?)

I'm not buying a year old, 540p, 5 hours game for my PS3, wtf? UBI can keep it. On the other hand SC:C Sigma might have support from me.

MmaFanQc3129d ago

like bioshock, gta:latd & gta:tbgt?

ALFAxD_CENTAURO3129d ago (Edited 3129d ago )

All I know is if it does come to the PS3, Ubisoft's word is meaningless.

BeaArthur3129d ago

Every developers word is meaningless anyways. We've been down this road before. It wouldn't surprise me if it comes to the PS3 and it wouldn't surprise me if it doesn't.

RememberThe3573129d ago

When ever you hear these companies talk it's just the money. We can never take these companies at their word. F*ck'em.

FarEastOrient3129d ago

Yes I heard this before....


2005 Final Fantasy XIII is coming to PS2
2006 Never mind, Final Fantasy XIII is coming to PS3
2007 Final Fantasy XIII is exclusive to PS3
2008 Oh wait a minute, I have one more video to show...

2009 Final Fantasy XIII is released exclusively in Japan
2010 Final Fantasy XIII is sold to both Xbox 360 and PS3 in the West

JD_Shadow3129d ago (Edited 3129d ago )

Yeah, Ubisoft. Just keep trying to deny and try to kill the rumors that keep piling up, just like you keep denying that your DRM methods fail. We believe you. *snicker*

EDIT: By the way, I love how sites dealing with these kinds of statements just dismisses every rumor starter that ever started it and takes the publisher's word for it, even when we know they wouldn't be as honest as we think they are (especially when Ubisoft themselves said there was a "wait and see" attitude about it appearing on the PS3).

Think about it: would Ubisoft want to stop the amazing sales of the 360 version by saying that it WOULD appear on the PS3 at some point?

renegade3129d ago (Edited 3129d ago )

Whatever It would come to ps3 later.

Hands Up For Games3129d ago

I think there telling the Truth. Just like MGS4 is exclusive to PS3 (great game!) but the Raiden spin off is coming to both the PS3 and 360, I think Splinter Cell will go the same route. Conviction will be a 360 exclusive and the next installment will be multiplatform.

Just my 2 cents though.

aaronisbla3129d ago

the main difference here is that besides one MG game, none have never went to a MS console and when it did, it had some issues with it, like framerate and things like that. They ended up putting that version on the ps2 as well.

With Splintercell, they have always found there way over to a sony machine, this is the main reason why some think it will come. At this point if its not released in a few months for the ps3, they will lose a lot of potential sales cuz by then it will be "on to the next one", thats how a lot of gamers are.

FarEastOrient3129d ago

If you look at the history of Splinter Cell it was never exclusive to one platform in any form. It was released on the Xbox first than the PC and than later on the Playstation 2, a simple google or wiki will show that all Tom Clancy games are multi-platform beget that they all started as timed exclusives.

NeutralGamer3129d ago

Actually MGS3 was the first Sony exclusive...

Metal Gear Solid 1 came to PC
Metal Gear Solid 2 came to PC AND Xbox
