VG247: Ubisoft's Maxime Béland has told VG247 that as far as Splinter Cell on PlayStation 3 goes in the future, the company is taking a 'wait and see' approach.
what ever happens is fine with me, im into old school splinter cell but this is a renter, but if it DOES come on ps3, i will be able to check it out. back to mgs4.
We'll have to see what? If Ubisoft have a brain? Does Ubisoft want a fatter wallet? What is the problem with porting the games to PS3? It's simply not a big enough franchise to be viable as a console exclusive. Even if it is for this gen, what happens next generation when some 360 owners choose to go to the PS4, then you'll be loosing your market, because the PS3 owners shopping to Xbox 3 will not be fans of the series. Third party franchise exclusivity = stupid move.
Splinter cell on ps3....I say thanks but no thanks!!!!!! Killzone 3 on ps3.Crysis better console version on ps3...E.T.C...... we dont need a splinter cell on ps3. :) But i would not mind gears 1/2/3 on ps3.
i'm on the opposite end C-R-E-A-M i've played gears, not that impressed.. splinter cell i'd love to see on my ps3.. not that it matters to me as i'm working on building a new pc this weekend and will play it but i think ps3 owners would appreciate splinter cell more than gears
Must be waiting to see what the sales are like. I'd guess a maximum of 2 million sales on 360 only, but more likely about 1.5 million imo. Really though, I think it would need more than that to make a profit after it's been in development for so many years, unless MS paid for part of the development.
I don't want it on any platform. The Ai stinks, it's short, it's built with old technology, sub-HD, and they took basic stealth mechanics out from previous games (According to them, they didn't have time to add body moving.....5 years not long enough?).
well... PS3 can't be overlooked anymore. plus it's freaking future proof.
splinter cell is already on ps3, in the form of splinter cell: double agent.
@nix: And despite bigger Xbox install base PS3 earns more money for companies like EA or Ubisoft(source: it was raped several times during the last year). MS just had to offer something for exclusivity. It works both ways for bigger third parties. I doubt Ubisoft suddenly found PS3 too hard to develop.
how good the sales are on the 360, then they'll decide.
thanks to terrible ratings its no doubt gonna happen now as it will bomb in sales as fanboys will no longer pick it up thanks to it not being a high rating exclusive (even though its not an exclusive being on windows but 360 fanboys pretend PC doesn't exist even though they use PC to post here) .
The article is saying FUTURE Splinter Cell titles on PS3 is a wait and see....
...If Microsofts next cheque bounces.
they're talking about the future of Splinter Cell - not Conviction
Why must they torment us? SC on ps3 would be great and I'm really hoping they bring it over.
They better give it the Sigma treatment. I'm just saying.
that I can rent this game, an overnight would do it for me I meant to complete the game lol
"We"ll have to see what MS has to offer us first."
If it does come to PS3, i can scratch it off my to buy list. My friend, who doesn't really have a gaming rig and ps3 only owner, would buy this day one. So than i can steal his copy after he is done w/ it xD And invest my game into another game that we can share down the down.
Good to hear, specially for those that are Splinter Cell-hungry at the moment. Hopefully they do port their games, or make a new one for the PS3. Personally, Splinter Cell died for me with Double Agent. I expected another Chaos Theory but ended up being disappointed buy D.A. :( Still, great news for those that want a new Splinter Cell.
I meant "by" ...Stupid BlackBerry (^_^)
hardly surprising if it did.i know chaos theory was on the ps2.
@ the person above
I think sales will determine when/if it comes to the PS3. If it sells good, it might be a while before it comes to the PS3, if ever. If it sells poorly, it will be on the PS3 this year.
That makes sense but then if it sells poor why would it perform better on the PS3, especially considering it's coming late? I smell a huge flop as other late ports have already shown. BTW, I'm not buying a 576p game for my PS3 at full price. Bargain bin or just PC version.
...and if it didn't they've be wasting their time bringing it to PS3. Porting and old game hoping to make a profit is just plain old dumb.
Loved the first 3 splinter cell game , wasnt keen on double agent. The latest one not bad , but nothing special.
if you do bring it to the ps3, update it so that we can carry bodies around otherwise keep that 5 hour sht on 360 and pc.
Why would you want to carry bodies around? There are rooms where you fight 30 enemies and having to hide every body would be so lame.
Im surprised they are even thinking about it I would have thought unless MS paid for the next game too it would obviously be multiplatform.
so it went from a "no" to a "we'll have to see". I like where this is going.
I dont think they ever said "no" regarding the franchise, only Conviction, which was probably partly bank rolled by MS.
At one point they did say that this one wouldn't but the next one might.
...on PS3 much like sigma 2. Exclusivity on 360 resolved.
And lets b honest MGS4 is the true GOD of stealth games. I knw the new mgs is multiplat but i knw MGS5 will b a ps3 exlusive.
how do u kno this?
For me MGS(as series) is true God of gaming... And about MGS5, you're wrong. It's PSP exclusive. Peacewalker is MGS5, just renamed cause of "portable" reasons. But in the future there could be MGS numbered with 5.
I dunno, I had a lot of fun with Tenchu 1 and Syphon Filter 1.
Metal Gear Solid and Tenchu series are what got me into the stealth genre. We have a great MGS game this gen. Still waiting on a *true* Tenchu game though. PS3 needs more Tenchu.
When i had xbox, Splinter Cell games were really good. I admit the xbox controller is better for Splinter Cell. Now this news sounds like Splinter Cell on PS3 will happen. If true ,i look forward to play it.
splinter cell has already been on the ps3, but people tend to forget.
third part company like Ubi Soft are making only exclusive game for the Wii. There is an obvious reason, the Wiimote. Now, They are not doing exclusive for PS3 and xbox 360, but time exclusive especially if they own the IP. Maybe to be fair with the gamer, these company should not announced and used the term exclusive, because it's not. And that will save a lot of comment about the speculation of the exclusivity is just a time exclusive.
i dont want it
Does anyone really care? Surely if you want the game so much you buy a 360. That's the point of exclusive (even though this isn't exclusive) titles or just buy it on PC. I'm waiting for the price to drop then gonna buy it on to play on my brothers 360, ain't gonna pay full price for a 5 hour game (my brother hasn't got XBL, and I refuse to pay for a service on someone else's console...so co-op is out of the question). Got too many PS3 games to be worrying about these days.
no need to...game aint that good anyway...
future splinter cell games, not conviction.
In other words; Wait for E3..
It would make sense, the cost of porting the game across to the PS3 would be minimal compared to the amount of sales they would achieve.
Ok, PS3 version Confirmed. Anyway.... thanks, but no thanks.
He could be talking about conviction or just a new game of splinter cell.
That is what it sounded like to me too. From the little they gave us, it looks like Max is talking about the future of the franchise on multiple platforms, which would make perfect sense. The site combines that with some rumors about SC:C going to the PS3 and people are mislead.
I hope you guys realize they are talking about the future titles.. Conviction ISN'T coming to PS3.. some people need to get over that.. Not saying I don't want it, but I just hate this false hope..
Its published from ubisoft. It could very well come to the PS3 within the coming months. Remember Bioshock?
Lmao And the speculation begins!
Thought you were well used to it by now http://forum.beyond3d.com/s...
is going to be better than the 360 version if i remeber kojima said a few years back that metal gear solid 4 cant be done on the 360 thought to let you know uncharted 2 killzone 2 uncharted 1 god of war 3 all say hi even when i play god of war 3 i know 360 cant handle the graphics on that game
i never believe in 360 exclusives anymore. from ninja gaiden,eternal sonata, tales of vesperia, star ocean 4, bioshock, lost planet, overlord, and all of the GTA5 episodes from liberty city, they were all timed exclusives, all lies saying they were only on xbox, even as far as some of them having a stamp "only on xbox 360) and then it still comes to ps3. 360 has no exclusives besides halo, some of gears (some on pc), and fable.
I could say the same about Devil May Cry 4, Quantum theory, Tekken, Final Fantasy 13, Virtua Fighter, Fatal Inertia all being PS3 timed exclusives
um wtf the only one that counted on that list was virtua fighter lol all the others came out at same time on both systems, LOL at fatal inertia, notice i only counted good games people cared about? all the games i listed came out first on the system, not came out same day. so bring a better arguement ;p losing exclusives is different than saying its exclusive, releasing it then it comes out on ps3. look at NG2, the case says (only on xbox 360)
Did they have a stamp saying "Only on PS3"? Did anyone associated with Sony or the game developers say "This game is only going to be on PS3"?
ur sentence sounds like u were confused or read to far into my comment. my comment meant that when a game is believed to be exclusive on xbox it has a stamp, then just to see it goes over to ps3 anyway. i dont really understand what the point of ur comment was lol. wud be cool if u cud clear it up ;p. eitherway almost no game is exclusive if its 3rd party these days, thats y MS needs more 1st party studios to make more exclusives.
To add to that, most of the exclusives playstation lost were from last gen, This gen sony has created a tonne more franchises whilst microsoft has just decided to whore halo and gears and throw timed deals at other stuff. There's very few games that you can say were once PS3 exclusive and now are multiplat, and well they probably aren't worth mentioning anyway. lol fatal inertia, desperate much?
very desperate if he had to mention fatal inertia lol
What they mean is we'll look into it that means THEY WON'T put it on their so I could care less bout Splinter Cell, try playing in the past but don't even care for this game.
i don't see why not. all the splinter cell games on the PS2 sold well and ubisoft isn't known for doing exclusives so i don't know why they would start now. It probably justed a timed exclusive
So, Timed exclusive, just as we all thought...
"Only on xbox 360......for now"
its a good game
I agree. But their business partners in this one *probably* don't agree with you though.
thanks but no thanks Ubisoft. Keep your 5 hour turd on Xbox.
