The Xbox 360 and PC exclusive Splinter Cell Conviction has finally hit the 1 million mark, but is this enough for Ubisoft's game which has been years in development?
I want this game when it first came out, but now, no thanks. I don't know, I guess it loss all the hype
Ive been enjoying Alan Wake so much more than SCC but then again both games have been put on hold since i got the beast that is RDR. damn disagrees for what "I" enjoy??? N4G!!!! Bring back the open zone!!!!
you'll still get disagrees for sharing your feelings! that's N4G for ya!
would not help this.
No SC has ever NOT been on the Playstation so why would anyone in their right minds ever think Conviction would be any different? Conviction WILL BE, not only on the PS3 & PSP but also on Nintendo DS and Wii. Just stop it and you won't get so butt hurt when these announcements are made.
but you have a right to one so i gave you an agree.
This is what you get if you switch what used to be a PS exclusive brand to another console. Ubisoft sure paid the price here the question is did MS make up for the money lost? I seriously doubt it.
was a ps exclusive? I thought it first appeared on the xbox...
Since when has Splinter Cell been a PS brand? are you feeling OK? SC was a series that was for the Xbox and much better on the Xbox.
Splinter Cell has never been a PS brand, did you hit your head?

Seriously how did he get 7 agrees?
I believe you are thinking of Syphon Filter.
You win some, you loose some vhero, UBI also paid the price with Haze, making that a PS3 exclusive pretty much killed that game, and a great dev because of all the pressure of being an exclusive. It would of probably sold decently if it was just an average multiplat FPS. But with that said, since when was Splinter Cell a playstation exclusive? Splinter Cell has always been an Xbox exclusive at first, and then it moves to the playstation, conviction coming to the PS3 eventually is as sure as death and taxes. Lets just say, they will loose much less with this exclusive then they did with Haze.
didnt make haze
you are right, they published it and inked an exclussive deal with Sony. I am well aware that Free Radical made the game, I am shocked you, and the people who agreed with you, did not make that link and you felt the need to clarify such a common peice of knowledge. Sadly Free radical is dead now because they made an average game that had exclussive pressure and sold on only one console. If it was just another multi plat game made by free radical, I am positive Free Radical would still be here today, but we will never know. Sad truth is, UBI signs a publishing deal with Free Radical, make it a sony exclussive, and the game does not live up to the hype and does not sell well.
had HAZE gone 360 exclusive instead, Free Rad would still be around cause the game would have gotten 8s&9s across the board especially in NA, easy; and sold much better. 2006: HAZE might be 360exclusive - "hey FR are awesome, the game looks great" mid2007: HAZE will be multiplat - "booo. meh, looks good anyways. the 360 version will sell more" late 2007: HAZE now PS3 exclusive - "VENOM!!!! KILL KILL KILL!" Check out Fuels of War. Same situation, not as good as HAZE but got much more favorable reviews than it truly deserved. The PS3 hate in 2006-2008 was total insanity... especially at gamespot :). Sure it was seen as just business for most NA gaming sites but still, pathetically insane none-the-less. @below: I'm sure he knows that all to well but FR, as we knew them, don't exist anymore.
Free Radical isn't really "dead" they got bought by Crytek and are now known as Crytek UK.
Splinter cell was a PS3 exclusive...lets add delusional to the ongoing PS3 stupidity list...lol... Conviction is awesome...PS3 kids wouldn't know...they can't play it...sad really...maybe one day, who knows.... Here's a peak at the DEMO..add 8+ hrs for the campaign...lol... BTW...the begining RTE part is M$ having a chat with Sony at E3...M$ is sam of course...lol...
Really, because I remember it something more like this... MID 2007: The game is multiplat - "meh, don't really care for the game." E3 2007: The game becomes exclusive to the PS3 - "OMG, this game is going be a halo killer and beat xbox 3si**ty!" MID 2008: Haze is released and reviews come in - "F&*^king Microsoft paid EVERYBODY to give bad review scores. This game x10 better than galo 3! Lets troll every site and fudge the user score." Late 2008: A few months have passed after release - "Haze is an underrated game and I personally liked it myself. These guys just don't appreciate the art direction of this game." LULZ!
The reason Haze blew was due to rocky game development, and organizational problems - it had nothing to do with exclusivity to the PS3, that is such an elementary argument given tons of PS3 exclusives have sold very well.
I agree... I wanted to play it when everybody was talking about it... Now I'm busy with Red Dead Redemption and fall is filled with great games as always!
I wanted this game before I realize Ubisoft was going to put DRM on it, [email protected], I don't care about it anymore....
I really wouldnt care for an half ass port next year anyway (or whenever it would launch on the ps3)
Didn't like Splinter Cell Conviction at all. PS3 gamers aren't missing anything by not having it. Now Alan Wake, that's a great game!
Rented it, finished single player and some multiplayer. The gameplay is good, but the story is only about 6 hours max. The multiplayer was also fun, but not something to keep me entertained for long time. I'd recommend it as a rental, but I wouldn't pay full price for it.
so its not exclusive, I know these websites are filled with teenage console owners but the pc is a platform.
To pay peoples wages?
Given it's been a month or so since it's release for the 360, 1 million is not a bad figure. Probably have to see it's performance review in their fiscal year estimate to decide if it paid people's salaries or not, but on a console dominated by FPS maniacs, it's still good.
Maybe, if they hadn't made the whole game, scrapped it and then remade the whole game, 1 million would be enough. But now they have to make up for two games worth of costs. Alan Wake will probably find itself in the same situation. Yes, I know it will not actually be two games worth, as things like character models and such can be transferred over, but scrapping a game and starting over is a huge waste of money!
"The Xbox 360 and PC exclusive Splinter Cell Conviction has finally hit the 1 million mark." Here I thought exclusive ment it was exclusive to 'ONE' system not two. When did the meaning of the word exclusive change?
You're right... Maybe they should just call it Playstation 3 excluding? I'm not that good to english and I was just trying to be fun -.-
That can work better or at least say it's 1-console exclusive, I know a PC is not a Console, it's more than that, so saying it's exclusive and making it sound like IF you can play it only in one specific console, is denying the fact that you can play it on PC
they will call red dead redemption a ps3 and xbox 360 exclusive, they may as well since the two systems have almost exactly the same lineup of games.
I have it sitting on my PC. Wondering if I should play it..
I bought it for PC and although I enjoyed it a lot it just wasnt as good as the other ones like Chaos Theory. Dont get me wrong, the game was very enjoyable, the graphics were decent (Although dissapointing for a PC game) I just thought it was much more action based than stealth based. Congrats to SCC for reaching 1million+ sold though :)
This game failed the second it was announced that there was no Mercs Vs. Spies
its not been out that long but for both systems it needs to hit at least 2 million just to get back the cost.it will pay back the cost over time,alan wake on the other hand seems to be heading for the bargain bin quickly its not a bad game but its got to human written all over it on the sales front,shame sales is was it,s all about these days
"he Xbox 360 and PC exclusive Splinter Cell Conviction has finally hit the 1 million mark, but is this enough for Ubisoft's game which has been years in development?"....not sure how that makes sense? So FFXIII must be PS3/Xbox 360 exclusive? No lol It's multiplat. Just like this game. What stupid wording. anyways, does anyone who owns a PS3 actually care for this game. I'd be more interested in Fable III coming to PS3, that said I'm buying a 360 for that game XD
It's silly to call this an exclusive. I can play this on my Sony Vaio and I don't own a 360. So how is it a 360 exclusive? lol. Silly. As for the game, no thanks. I can torrent it free if I wanted to but I wont even bother wasting my time. This game doesn't look worth the time.
Well it isn't on the PS3 and I have a few friends who wish it was. Hey does your VIAO run on Windows or Linux?
Conviction was in development for so long because the original concept was scrapped and they started over from scratch.
Better hurry then Ubisoft, I've got a feeling this E3 Sony will announce Syphon Filter 5. When that happens you won't sell more than 1000 copies on PS3.
Bring us some SF Sony!. Love the series.
Sony Bend did a great job with Resistance Retribution and Syphon Filter on PSP.
The last good SF was on PS1. Whilst a lot of gamers would be hyped about a new SF for a lot of gamers PS3 or PS2 was the first time they got into gaming so i doubt sales would be affected that much. Lots of gamerss will remember chaos theory though, which would help sales of SC:C
Great game..well deserved.. MSWorld is on crack.. Why pretend that Splinter Cell doing a Million in 4-5 weeks on the 360 alone isnt an achievement.. We've see some games cheer bout that feat after 7 months on the shelf.. LOL @ the Bu-Bu-but it's on the PC too and even the article mentions it
Lol wtf are you trying to say?
MSWORLD says: 'One million is an impressive milestone, and once was an accolade worth shouting about, but with the rising and huge development costs of video games in today's climate, one million isn't as great as it used to be and a lot more units need to be shifted' I say that to downplay or 'pretend' that selling one milion in 4-5 weeks in is not an 'accolade worth shouting about' is silly. I have seen game that go platinum over 6 months later and scream to the world like they did it one day. Why? Because it's still a great achievement no matter what year it is. Especially the fact that it sold it on one console. the other major point is that MSWORLD is also pretending that the game will not sell another copy. The other is just the fact that the PC wording always gets the same ol' scrutiny.
Well, considering that 1 million is not what it used to be, I'd say that PS3 version is imminent (possibly announced at E3). They gotta make money, and if 360PC is not enough (and it probably isn't), PS3 version is gonna happen.
But it's on the 360, it's supposed to sell a million in one day - LMAO
Didnt actually buy Conviction cus i just didn't like how Ubisoft had changed the game. In terms of advertising however, splinter cell has always had it. Off the top of my head, it advertised Nokia phones, and Airwaves chewing gum.
At least he didn't put "The Xbox 360 exclusive Splinter Cell Conviction" ;-D I don't care i never bought 'Splinter Cell' games for my PS2 even tho they were ok the games + I don't buy 'xBox 360' SLOPPY seconds!!! ;-D
It was a great game. Why not share the love Wouldn't be shocked if it went to PS3. More people share the experience.
I think a lot of PS3 owners lost interest in this title honestly. But I know they have a fanbase on the PS3 so if it makes them happy then go for it.
I've always liked the idea of game exclusivity. It gives you a reason to be proud of being the owner of an Xbox360 or PS3 respectively. However, it's also becoming a problem with the development cost. I think games that aren't developed by first party developers should be timed exclusives only. The biggest complaint about multiplatform titles is that it's inevitable that one console will get more attention than the other because of the alledged differences in the technological architectures. If this is so, development should be treated separately within the company. If it's more feasibly profitable and easier to get a quality Xbox360 version that uses the strengths of the console out of the door then do so. If the PS3 version requires extra attention to get a quality version that uses the strengths of the console out of the door then do that separately even if it takes more time. No one ever said that the games had to be released simultaneously. If the devs were smart, they'd only release the game when both development teams are done. If it takes several months more to do this, who would know besides the company. For example, as technical as Red Dead Redemption is, the Xbox360 version has been confirmed to be superior. This will go on back and forth for awhile if the devs keep doing it this way. Conviction needs to sell at least 2 million copies to be successful, simply because of the long development time.
Well even early on in the Splinter Cell Conviction production they said it was a 360 exclusive. So I don't think it's going to come out on the PS3. Originally the Splinter Cell series was only on the Xbox and then they started to water them down by putting them on the PS2 as well. I kind of lost interest. However, I wouldn't go by all the reviews, the Game Informer one which gave it a 9.5 or whatever is pretty accurate though. I loved the game and if you like stealth action then this is your game, if your were disappointed in the lack of stealth in MGS4 then this is your game. It's a wonderful game and the online is fantastic! A must have for 360 owners !
If it comes to PS3 maybe you can move body's and hide them. Anyways I got it used at GameStop for the 360 an I play more Hunter then anything else on it.
that is a good signsfor developers to release titles throughout the year instead of the 3 months window. I will rent it because i dont pay for live, and paying full price for half the game is not acceptable Edit what i meant was the online co-op mode is not available for me withe the silver account
Alot of the add ons are free, mostly adds new weapons and one or two new armor.
Great sales! I hope they release an expansion campaign to keep the experience going :) I had a lot of fun playing this one.
Im playing it now, it's not that good. MGS4 takes a poop on this game. I'll beat it and trade it.
it felt like Sam Fischer in Dead to Rights lol... just didn't do anything for me, and now with Alan Wake out... I haven't touched this game! Im trading it in towards Mod Nation Racers most likely!
Ubi is going to loose money on this game. The game will probably need to sell 4 or 5 million to make money because of the amount of money and development that went into the game.
1 million sales is bad now?? I expect this to go to the PS3 regardless. And why not? More people get to enjoy this game and Ubi makes even more money. 360 owners still get to enjoy the game and it will be an afterthought by the time it does come to PS3. I don't see what the big deal is and isn't this already on the PC anyway so it's not an exclusive to begin with? If anything I would of rather they did a simultaneous release since I think timed exclusives like timed DLC is crap. The only advantage I can see is the studio can have more time to work on the different platforms but for gamers it feels like we are getting jerked around.
ubisoft changed around the gameplay too much in my opinion...but good sales
