Oh Splinter Cell....return and remind this generation what stealth really is.

Your gonna get bombarded by MGS fans. For good reason, I might add.

BTW, Yes I would enjoy a HD remake of the 1st and Chaos Theory.

Is this only for PS3? I prefer the 360 controller, but I wouldn't mind getting HD remakes of those 3 games for the PS3 if that was my only option.

"Yes I would enjoy a HD remake of the ***1st and Chaos Theory.***"

Those two were the best in the series. Even to this day I still can't decide which one was better between them. If I had to call though, Chaos Theory, though the first Splinter Cell had a really good story to it.

Man... If they add trophy support on top of that..... I'll be all over it.

Question will any of these remakes work on the next console? or will people need to buy them all over again.
OhReginald  +   1717d ago
umm splinter cell did return with splinter cell conviction...but is didn't remind us so much of how the game is stealthy...
HolyOrangeCows  +   1717d ago
I mean the spirit of Splinter Cell needs to return.
theIMP  +   1717d ago

Now we just need the freaking GTA HD remakes.
nycredude  +   1717d ago
I like to look at it as fan service and a steal for me! Mostly a difference in perspective. Glass half full mentality.
CobraKai  +   1717d ago
Wait, it's only on blu-ray in Europe? Aww man!!!
AKissFromDaddy  +   1717d ago
playasia(dot)com for imports :-)
CobraKai  +   1717d ago

Bathyj  +   1717d ago
Download only or will there be a retail copy.

I prefer to own the disc, plus alot of my downloads dont seem to work.

Anyone else have the corrupt data error on PSN?
showtimefolks  +   1717d ago

Pandora Tomorrow FTW!

Possibly the return of spies vs mercs? If so.....OHOHOHOBABY!
Quagmire  +   1717d ago
I wouldnt know since I havent played, but from a friend who's crazy about SC, isnt pandora tomorrow the worst?
Balt  +   1717d ago
I hope it's DL only. I wish every game 10gb and under was made for DL honestly. With this news I wonder if Sony fans will come back to finally tout their dominance in better version over the xbox counterpart? Remember all them years back when Splinter cell was 1st announced and there was no PS2 version in sight? Remember the xbox owners touting it? Remember when the PS2 version was announced and then remember how it looked? Now, the time has come. Sony finally gets the better looking versions. I just wonder if it'll just be a PC port or actually take advantage of the PS3's hardware.

alster23  +   1717d ago

bofuknjanglez  +   1717d ago

DarkBlood  +   1717d ago
k well

that sucks looks like the EU pop blu-ray disk might be my first import and splinter cell too maybe if they dont realise it on disc in canada

also question to the experinced importers
will the game work with my u.s account or do i have to create a EU account for the first time to play this
Dark_king  +   1717d ago
Your account doesn't matter at all,unless the game has DLC it doesn't.Though if it did all you need to know is while all current games are region free the DLC must be from the region listed on the side of the game.Your actually account has nothing to do with region data.

This is great. The more HD remakes the better. Other companies will see the easy profit in this and start doing the same. Hopefully MGS 1-3 will come next year.
DigitalRaptor  +   1717d ago
MGS Collection would absolutely dominate on PS3. Just take a look at how well MGS4 sold and that is an indication of the success Konami would have. I'm sure Sony and Kojima already knows this and some team is probably working on it.

I predict it will be released in anticipation of Metal Gear Solid: Rising in late 2011/early 2012. Or perhaps even earlier.
