Ubisoft Explains Splinter Cell Exclusivity

The original was developed just for Xbox, remember?

At X06, Ubisoft made an interesting move by announcing the next Splinter Cell sequel -- the one to come after Double Agent, which isn't even released yet -- would be exclusive to Xbox 360. Obviously, there was some backdoor negotiations going on to secure this exclusive (what was Ubisoft promised?), but GamesIndustry.biz talked with company president Yves Guillemot for an explanation.

"Splinter Cell was created on the first Xbox, so we thought it was important to come back for one volume with Microsoft to create a very good quality title focused on using the full power of the system," he said.

It would totally change the definition of what we call "Next-Gen"

everytime i read about things like this it just makes me proud to be a 360 owner and a ubisoft fan :) keep up the good work and we'll keep the the money rolling in :) now only if some of that loyalty would rub off on a few other developers :/not to mention any names or companies but we all know who they are >:(

How many of you actually read the article?

How powerful the XBOX 360 is and how great and complete the "Live" feature is.

Were really fortunate in that we are being given soooo many great true next gen. titles.

I've gotta get my HDTV soon. Any suggestions for a good smaller screened LCD TV?

I actually got a Samsung 19" Syncmaster MW widescreen, hd/tv ready, tv/monitor for 360$ i love it. It's got every connection except hdmi and only one of all the other connections but I don't need more than one. I reccommend it because it is cheap but still hd and beautiful when the 360 is hooked up.

TheXgamerLive6355d ago

I'll check into that. That's a good price if it has true HD quality. I'll check my local Best Buy.

my samsung has a 20" screen but same features. I found it at several places but my walmart had it for $347.00,..thanks.

I do agree that Tomb Raider Angel of Darkness was the worse one 😂 I remember playing some of it and I took it back. That game was just awful in every way. I bought it used at gamestop and glad they had that 7 day return policy for used games 😂

Simple. He's been hating on the Tomb Raider reboots for years. I can't imagine seeing them at the top of a best TR game list let alone being on the list in general sitting well with him because of it.

I would agree Rise for 1 and the reboot as 2. Shadow is a bit high, though.

Sonic18813h ago(Edited 3h ago)

I think Shadow wasn't even develop by crystal dynamics. I thought it was the worse in the new trilogy

Pyrofire952h ago

That's right. Shadow was developed by Eidos Montreal who who went and made Marvels Guardians of the Galaxy next. (Great game)
Meanwhile after Rise of the Tomb Raider, Crystal Dynamics made Marvels Avengers. (bad game)

MeatyUrologist24m ago

Agrees. First two are correct but Shadow should be around 5-6.

For me, Legend should be alot higher (along with the other two ). Shadow, I enjoyed it, but has too much has fluff, as modern games tend to do. Playing the remastered series, and apart from the controls, is very good.
