Ubisoft: Conviction not coming to PS3, maybe next game will

Posted by: Ahmed Al-Dajani 27/Mar/2010
Sam Fisher's upcoming adventure is shaping up to be an extraordinary experience. Xbox360 owners had the chance to play the game before its release through the recently released demo on Xbox Live. PC gamers still didn't have the chance to try the game, but they will play the final version of the game next month. But what about a PS3 version of the game? Ubisoft said it before and now, Max Beland the creative director of Splinter Cell: Conviction has reconfirmed it once again: Splinter Cell: Conviction isn't coming to the PS3.  
 
 
 
Max Beland the Creative Director of Splinter Cell: Conviction discussed how they redefined the Splinter Cell franchise with Conviction in an interview with Industrygamers and how they made the game more accessible in an attempt to broaden the Splinter Cell audience. Although the developers of the game are aiming to broaden the Splinter Cell audience, he confirmed that Conviction won't be released on PS3 in the future and it will remain exclusive to Xbox360:  
Max Beland: Well, Splinter Cell was originally built on Xbox and we've had a great relationship with Microsoft. So Conviction is an exclusive for 360, it's not going to go to PS3, and that's interesting because it gives us some advantages. Our lead programmer was talking about it the other day and he said that when you're focusing only on one platform you can really fine-tune everything for that platform. He gave the analogy of a race car – you could build a car to do Indy, Nascar and F1 but it probably wouldn't win races in any of those. If you want to win the race you need to focus on one.  
Although he reconfirmed that Conviction won't be coming to Sony's console, he has hinted that we might see the next installment in the series going multiplatform:  
Max Beland: Now, are we going to see the next versions of Splinter Cell on other platforms? That I can't answer, but there's no reason why we wouldn't go on other platforms. And other versions of Splinter Cell have been on multiple platforms.  
So if you want to play the forthcoming game in the series, you have to choose between the Xbox360 or the PC version of the game, there isn't a PS3 version in the works. Splinter Cell: Conviction will be released on April 13th in the US, April 15th in Europe and Australia and April 16th in the UK for Xbox360. A PC release is set to follow shortly after.

who cares? really? this is the same tactic microsoft used in the beginin with gta4 when they felt threatened by their rival n tht game nvr lived up to the hype now they are doin it again with splinter cell which sucked after chaos theory. last time i checked pc was a different platform its just micorsoft monopolized. Maybe this cud make it a better game mite reach mgs4 level all the more better.

This has been beaten to death. Keep your 570p game. Who the fuck wants another splinter cell.

it’s not going to go to PS3, and that’s interesting because it gives us some advantages. Our lead programmer was talking about it the other day and he said that when you’re focusing only on one platform you can really fine-tune everything for that platform. "there’s no reason why we wouldn’t go on other platforms [in next version]" Is it me is that not a contradiction? My interpretation? Money from Microsoft...

Well, I'm a PS3 user and I love the Splinter Cell series. But I guess they don't like my money..

STUPID AND GAY!!! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- “So Conviction is an exclusive for 360, it’s not going to go to PS3, and that’s interesting because it gives us some advantages” 360? Advantages? Is it possible for those to words to co-exist within the same sentence? If anything, PS3 gives them much more opportunities than 360. Not opinion, but FACT. PS3 can handle Conviction times 2 and a half. <---------- TOTALLY AGREE - WTF

Huh, that sucks... if the next game will be on PS3 as well, what's the point? I mean, none of the PS3 players will know Conviction's story so it'd be stupid to go back to multi-plat. after going exclusive all of a sudden. To be honest I hate all exclusivity in regards to PS3 and 360 games, I'd actually love it if more 360 gamers could play thing like heavy rain or the uncharted games or metal gear solid 4, and PS3 gamers could play left 4 dead or gears of war or whatever else. I see the point of it for the competing console companies, but for ubisoft being 3rd party... and this being not very long after a recession wouldn't it be crazy not to produce games on multiple HD platforms?

PS3 gamers aren't missing out on anything. I was really hyped for this game until I actually played the demo. I cancelled my pre-order the next day. I was expecting so much from Conviction graphically and gameplay wise. What a letdown.
