Splinter Cell: Conviction will be available on the Xbox 360 and PC in April, Ubisoft has consistently made it clear that the game is a true 360 exclusive, but are they telling the truth?
No thanks, I already played MGS4, I dont need a water down version
"No thanks, I already played MGS4, I dont need a water down version" Marius do u really believe that? I've never seen Snake smash someones head into a wall in real time, nor have I ever seen him perform interrogations in real-time, nor have I ever seen him climb up a ceiling and shoot down a chandelier. Did MGS4 have co-op? Does MGS4 have photorealistic graphics? Can Snake take out two marks at once by simply pivoting his hip? Marius, if you consider Conviction to be lesser than MGS4 before even playing it, my friend, you AREN'T a gamer. If this game comes out on PS3, ill buy it Day 1. @Shadow- LOL, I asked if MGS4 has co-op. Why are u talking about Peace Walker? And yes, Conviction won't have a better story than MGS4, but lemme clue ya in on a lil sumthin... Story is ONE aspect of a game and from what I've seen from trailers, Convictions gameplay is MUCH faster than that of MGS4's. @Sscoolchea- Yes, I've played MGS4, twice actually. In fact I'm staring at it right now. Is it that hard for u to believe that not everyone who played MGS4 thought it was the alpha/omega? There are PLENTY of people on N4G(including me) who have stated that we think MGS3 was better.
Dead you're stupidity annoys me sometime. Metal Gear Peace Walker 4 player Coops. Slinter Wanna be 2player coops. Metal Gear Solid Epic Story Line Slinter Wanna be lame James Bond Rip off. Splinter Cells competes with Syphon Filtter if you ask me.
Guess you've never played MGS than dummmy
lol so if this splinter cell is the watered down version.....this is the real stealth action: http://image.com.com/gamesp... /???/ :'(
They just depend on timed exclusivity for games you can get on any other gaming platform. Who in their right mind would go buy a 360 for timed exclusives? Yeah, no one in their right mind thus the reason MS love the 360 fanbase.
Oh please let it be the watered down version. If that means not having to sit through hours of fan service video with sporadic game play it sounds like a winner!
Right, let's forget the years of petitions and crying for MGS4 from 360 fans........
man these types of articles suck.
Quick N4PS3G/Bungie/Omega4...etc! use all your accounts to report this!
? and this is garbage.
So I'm not the only one who thinks this website is possibly the worst on N4G... It honestly has never produced any content other than flamebait trash.
thats the worst. i dont know about the website but this is not enough proof. if i thought it was legit i'd aproove in a second.
http://www.n4g.com/xbox360/... but not now
Yes we have. And for that reason alone I hope it stays exclusive to PC and 360 because I'm sick and tired of hearing Microsoft say some game is exclusive to PC and 360 then later the PS3 winds up getting the game with all the DLC included. It's stupid.
Blockbuster is a very popular retailer, they don't make mistakes like this. NOW, I think its coming. If it was some "no-name" place id be skeptical, but BLOCKBUSTER...this is MORE than a mistake.
Oh snap! it got approved, HAHAHAHAHA!
Gamestooge is the worst 'gaming' website by far. A 360 fanboy blog site.
Ok its obviously a mistake...Next article..
Yeah ive heard that one before! next thing you know, Blockbuster will be Listing Fable 3 being released for both PS3 and 360 on the same day with the WII version one month after. But this day in age anything is possible i guess, the only system that has been proven to hold on to exclusives is the PS3.
Are there any mods actually left on N4G...How was this approved?
You know... preparing for the inevitable. :P
Yeah I agree ImmortalKaim and here I was thinking that HHG was the worst site on N4G and yet this one is coming close to being the worse. But what do you expect it's not even worth it to report it since the fanboys will always approve these sorta articles. I just tend to ignore them but I see this website produce quite a lot of these articles.
MSFT's year is so historic all PS3 fans can do is try to aggravate 360 fans with lies PS3 fans know are never going to happen. I hope the devs don't even respond to this one, they've said hell NO! about 5 times already. I'm guessing the mods allow this hit attracting fud for a short period of time. I'm surprised they allowed this to be approved with the source being one of the most out of touch in gaming, not to mention it's the least likely place for secret info. 27 reports and it still gets approved by rabid PS3 fanboy contributers that have too much power. One thing I've noticed is when PS3 fans sense the PS3's year to be pathetic, they start this 360 exclusives coming to PS3 crap. *Movements* is the worst PS3 fanatic contributer in years on N4G. EDIT Oh I see this is Splinter Cell article is retaliation because of Gamearena's Heavy Rain Review article as if the Heavy Rain review score was seen as an attack on the PS3 from 360 fans lol.
Not only is this website trash, I wouldnt consider Blockbuster a reputable source, even if it was a "slipup". They wouldnt have that information. For Christs Sake, my Blockbuster didnt even carry MAG nor knew what it was and I live in a college town!
from dates of releases to which platform a certain game is on, never rely on them... unless you wanna know something about movies. personal experience.
Oh the ps3 fans do want to get their hands on this, don't they.
So, this is the "news" that a multi-platform game series is listed as available for multiple platforms..... Slow news day? r.
ok...ill buy conviction used.
You know you're going to be right there behind me in line the day it comes out.
"something is curiously going on behind the scenes." Agreed, something curious is going on. For example, I find it VERY curious that sh*t articles like this get written. It's a typo. Let it go. (LOL, man I'm mean sometimes)
but you're funny too. Bubbles!
yea mgs4 is the best stealth game. it got number 4 of the greatest games of all time.
Of-course It Coming To PS3.
But I'm going to get it the day it comes out and by the time PS3 gets it nobody is going to care and that's why the PS3 version won't sell.
Firstly, the story is bassed on a probable typo/human error. Secondly, I doubt this actually WILL go to PS3. Finally-if it does it's a low act again if Ubi have allowed a game they know will go multi to be promoted as console exclusive to 360(it isn't an exclusive at all, really, as "exclusive" doesn't mean available on two different platforms in any way, shape or form but should really just stick to the platforms listed at announcement and through the dev cycle and ad campaign to come)as we've had too many lies and too much BS already this generation. Anyway I feel MS hand was very close to Ubisoft during the making of this game and they'll keep it away from PS3 (which is where I'd prefer to play a game like this controller wise anyhow)this time round.
Shhhhh Blockbuster. You can't talk about that yet.
It's just a matter of time. They'll end up releasing it with fixed bugs & extras just like most of the 360's "exclusives" & "console exclusives".
I remember when MGS4 was listed as being on the 360 on HMV's website, so much drama. PS3 owners are really desperate for some AAA goodness this year, sad times :(
I also remember when Toys 'R' us listed Episodes From Liberty City, and we all know how that turned o..oh wait. jk
Sorry you cant play GOW3
God its a misprint who the hell approves all of these articles. Only way we will get a real confirmation of Splinter Cell: Conviction coming to the PS3 is out of the mouth of Ubisoft nothing more, nothing less good night!
I would blame the submitters and approvers but this has happened so much in my history of N4G you know the people that run this site love this stuff. It brings them hits.. N4G is really no better than destructoid, cheezy azz Examiner blogs written by morons, the Jim Sterlings, etc. The N4G fanboy plays all the fanboys for $$$$ EDIT: Oh better read it quick! The money hats are rolling in to start deleting comments.. Oh course leaving the flamebait. So you know the mods have seen the story, seen the reports but still leave it up.
I'm highly considering just moving to the /v/ section of 4chan I'll get more gaming news out of that then this site...
Probably fake. But it'll still happen. By summer 2011. Guaranteed.
Man rumors Well we saw what happened with GTA4 DLC with the listing and the no official denied, just a no comment I want UBI to come out and say it already, but they won't, not until the 360 version is release, same with Bio ware with ME I just want both companies to come out and say if it is or not
Ubisoft has stated numerous times that Conviction is 360 only. Even this pathetic crap article states as much. "Ubisoft has consistently made it clear that the game is a true 360 exclusive."
"a true 360 exclusive", thats on PC right?
Yep, b-b-b-b-but Windows is owned by Micro$oft s-s-so it's exclusive.
Whats with the disagrees? I'm asking a question, is it on PC or not?
It's on PC, but it is exclusive to the 360 within the console space.
lol, Bathyj, don't lie. You were being rhetorical there. haha.
Eamon that is exactly what I thought when I read that. And we obviously aren't the only people given the disagrees.
This is coming from a source that doesn't even carry MAG. Must be a slow news day.
"available on the Xbox 360 and PC in April, Ubisoft has consistently made it clear that the game is a true 360 exclusive" .... oxymoron?
I dunno.. As much as the ignorant on this site like to live in a little bubble. When I go to a retailer console section and ask for Splinter Cell Conviction guess what isle they will take me too? It's not the PS3 isle.. That's the reality.. Not what the sissies here banging their head against the keyboard all day long in vein as they try and convince someone their toy is best. Not really sure who they are directing it at because I've not seen one fanboy convince anyone of anything ever. The 360 and PS3 are competing on a console level so as far as consoles go this game is only on the 360. Don't want to call it an exclusive, that is fine.. just know it's not on the PS3 or Wii.
WTF?! Obviously they're not gonna take you to the PS3 aisle for a game on PC & 360 unless they're stupid. If there is a multiplatform game, I don't expect just PS3 and 360. If a game is exclusive, I expect a game to be on one platform. That's why I don't call The Agency an exclusive. That's why I don't consider Halo 2 an exclusive. It's black and white. Either it's on one or more than one. If a news channel says they have "an exclusive interview" with someone, it's their station only. If a store sells exclusive lottery tickets, I better not see it anywhere else.
No chance its exclusive to 360/pc. Next splinter cell IS on ps3 aswell tho.
I don't see it really happening but it would be a good business trick, but I don't really care, I can rent it on 360 when I get around to getting one or just buy it for my PC. So I'm not to worry about it, plus its easy to use Photo Shop to change things like this.
Lmao Blockbuster know all the secrets. It's quite obviously a mistake. It very well may come to PS3 down the line but I don't imagine ANY retailers have solid confirmation on that this early on. Your talking months and months away if it does show it's head on PS3, as in end of this year/early next. Microsoft will have secured at least a solid timed exclusivity window.
but we know its a matter of time ^^
the XDF is working hard tonight with their FDI (Fanboys Disagreeing Illogically) badges keep it up fellas! Can't wait to play this game and ME2 on either my PS3 or my new Mac Book Pro =D!!! choice FTW
These kinda of stories are so unoriginal. -_-
I sure hope it does cause i dont want to buy a 360 just for this game... >_<
Of course its coming to ps3. Because 360 has no games simple as that. Fact
it will come in time just not as soon as people think
Why bother posting a mistake as news. If it ever does come to PS3, it will likely be 6 months to a year after the Xbox 360 version. You won't hear any official news until then.
Its probably a type. They probably meant to say PC & Xbox 360. However, we all know this game is coming to the PS3 its just a matter of when because pretty much every third party Xbox 360 exclusive has made its way to the PS3 except for Ace Combat.
