Ubisoft gives Games Radar the real reason why the fifth installment in the Splinter Cell series has been moved to a 2008 release date.
I believe that is what Ubisoft said when they saw the MGS4 trailer. LOL
Agreed Maximo, they were probably like "Ohhh Sh*t, we need more time to spruce 'er up guys"
Head to head with MGS4...dumbest move EVER!I love SC games but I'm a MGS fan to the core!;)
How can it be stupid to go head to head with MSG? Both of these games are exclusive titles and not multiplatform games.
Yeah, I think they saw MGS and said "Woah, we better get this right."
I dont mean that in a bad way, MGS is the new high water mark.
More time can only be good for us gamers, and heres hoping SC is better than the last one which I found disappointing.
I love this game.. I mean conviction .. double agent wasnt that good ..
cant wait to play this one.. ubi soft want to make their games with less bugs.. so they need more time..
I remember sth from someone , plz dont compare MGS and SC
"SC cant even pee in the same pool as MGS4"
They saw the footage of MGS4 and went back to the drawing board. I don't blame them that's alot of pressure to deal with. Since the 360 won't get MGS4 they need to really make the next Splinter Cell the best one yet but either way MGS and Snake is the King.
i know which one i'd go for following the trailer!!!
Yeah I'm sure the Splinter Cell team thought in their heads "we need to add a dirty magazine into Sam Fishers backback for extra healing power"
The Splinter Cell franchise is legendary...every game rates VERY HIGH on gamerankings. I'm bummed about this being delayed....oh well....more gametime for Halo 3 ;)
I'm much more hyped for SC:C, but to each his own.
Anyway, one of the reasons might have been the fact that the holiday season will be abnormally crowded.
All i keep on hearing is how great metal gear solid 4 will be, the game will be 4 hours game play, 60 million hours bizzare weird story line that only people on acid will understand, i mean apart from looks has anyone played it??? if its anything like its predocessors then it will be absolute bird droppings, if anyone says they thought M.G.S 2 was good is lying, number 3 was ok at the very best, splinter cell was much much better, better game play, better controls and more realistic, and please dont say i dont know what im on about, i have been a gamer since the vic 20 days!!!!!
It's stupid to pit SC against MGS...
I don't think MGS is any better...i feel ashamed. I thought the second one was the best :(
Anyway, I just don't think SC is as...well, BIG as MGS. Everyones all like "OHH MGS MGS!!!" When i see SC though i'm like..."What the hell!? It was great yeah but, now they've changed it to some crappy beat 'em up!? WHAT THE HELL!?"
I wasn't all that hyped for SC at ALL after i saw footage.
I couldn't care less for MGS though. I liked the second, but the others...meh. Overrated series. For me, it's something that i'll pick up if there's nothing else.
SPLINETER CELL held its game back so people can see for sure that SC has always been better than MGS, ALWAYS!
"timmyrulz" was correct with his comments. Also, this will force the weak media to pit the 2 games against each other so there will be no mistake.
Also, this will show how money hungry SONY & KONAMI are because they're going to make a stand alone ONLINE Game separate from MGS 4, when you get your ONLINE FIX in the SPLINTER CELL BOX for 1 price.
Ive always said MGS was overrated ( except for MGS 1 on PS1 great game just a little too short) now everyone will see exactly what the hell I was talking about.
Some people like MGS because of the CG scenes and far out story, also people like Splinter Cell for its realism and focus on game play.
I have watched the MGS4 trailer many times and it has jaw dropping graphics and a new and very sweet camo system.
We have seen the new Splinter cell trailers and see a brand new angle for the series. With a new physics and combat system
They both look awesome and they both are highly anticipated, but I do not believe the developers are going out of their way to compare and compete as some of your posts reference.
My personal opinion is the MGS enemies are too stupid and easy to trick. The Splinter cell games need a change in pace because I was sick of hide and seek. I say let the games speak for them self. So far both games are doing a good enough job with out mindless fan boy B.S.
spillentercell looks kind of [email protected]
The new Splinter Cell looks to have the same play mechanics as "Dead Rising"...but instead of mindless zombies there are mindless pedestrians to deal with.
Tried the 1st one(never passed it) but when i couldn't kill people i didn't play anymore.
Tried DA but 85% of the game was played in night vision or something other than normal view.(didn't finish that 1 either my friend did though)
MGS on the other hand ive played every home console game.
Nintendo Metal Gear: Saw both ending running down the hallway and blowing up the super computer/fighting it head on.
MGS playstaion: Very cool when i had to put the controller on the floor and then shook.
MGS2: was a good game if u get past the fact that u didn't play with snake the whole time.
MGS3: Best MGS ever the story was sick. You play with the OG solid Snake and find out that hes Big Boss and the whole game play crazy.
The old man with the bird how many was was there to kill him??
Change the clock on your ps2.
Find him and shoot him.
Or just out wait him.
For me its MGS over SC.
SC u know wut your getting sneek and peek spy game.
MGS you know wut your getting Sneek and peek but theres always some the they do to take u out of the normal gaming element and thats wut i can wait for.
btw can anybody tell me what that means,
msg is da shiz-nitz
i think solid snake is a patriot but he's the only one that dosent know it yet,
why dose sam fisher now sport a bread and long hair ,is he trying to look llike snake or what!
what is mgs4 doing differently. i saw the same hide under box/barrel trick, same attack guy from behind. all its got is better graphics a few new gadgets and a few new moves. the only thing that was awesome was the graphics and the camophloge
sc never was orginal in the first place, theres something id like to call the stealth series that tom clancy ripped from hideo ,sc not re-inventing ,more like de-iventing, sc is a cheap knock off, thats why they keep crankin them out every year.
holla at ya boy!
1) The SC series actually is re-inventing itself. If you had actually played the others and had actually watched some of the gameplay clips from Conviction, you would know how different it is going to be.
2) They aren't "crankin them out every year" as you said. If you had read the article, you would know that a new SC wont be released this year.
feel free to respond.
are better than metal gear.
I think he just meant they're pretty close to a yearly update EA style. This will be the 5th game since 2002 where's a MGS game usually goes through a 3 or even 4 year development period.
I personally like both games so I dont see whats wrong with getting them both even if they are coming out roughly the same time. Too much choice is not a bad problem to have.
Yeah, they are pretty close to a yearly release. However, they have two teams working on the series, so it isn't quite the same (one team is way better than the other though).
not impressed ,seen the the trailer ,looks like their re-inventing the movie bourne identity
seems like they released double anus last year and this year for the ps3, but im sure you knew that dr. pepper oh and the year before that was cuntotic theory .
I said new splinter cell. The PS3 version wasn't anything new, as it had been released on the 360 the previous year and it was the same. That is why I didn't include it. Even if they're drawing off of elements that are in the Bourne series, it doesn't mean they aren't re-inventing the Splinter Cell series as the gameplay and style are completely different. But I'm sure you knew that...
