Ubisoft: No Plans for PS3 Version of Splinter Cell: Conviction

271w ago - Speaking on the company's [Register or Login to view links], developer Ubisoft stated, "Splinter Cell Conviction is a true Microsoft exclusive title and there are no plans to have Splinter Cell Conviction on other platforms."

The firm elaborated on the decision to remain exclusive to 360, describing the Splinter Cell franchise as being 'historically linked' with Microsoft consoles beginning with the original title in 2002.

To quote: "There are several reasons behind this choice. First of all, Splinter Cell games are historically linked with Microsoft platforms.

The first Splinter Cell on the original Xbox was one of the first games to fully exploit the console's technical possibilities," added the company.

"At that time, Microsoft really believed in the game potential and provided strong support to promote it. So, there is a "link of heart" between the franchise and the platform. Some games are like this (think of Final Fantasy for instance)."

"The second reason behind this choice is purely linked to production. Having a single target platform means that we can optimize the game even further, because we only have one type of - console - hardware to support."

Let's read between the lines here shall we.....

As like MGS and FF, yet they seem to have found their way over to the Xbox. So the point is mute.

Seeing that the PS3 is technically better than the Xbox. Just starting with Blu-ray. I'd say their game has not pushed anything as far as "other" gaming console on the market. Says a lot about their capabilities.

"At that time, Microsoft really believed in the game potential and provided strong support to promote it. So, there is a "link of heart" between the franchise and the platform. Some games are like this (think of Final Fantasy for instance)."
We sold our souls to the MS devil. Nothing new here as this is the MS SOP ( standard operation of procedure ) to do business. If we can't better you, we will buy you. Again FF, found it's way over to the Xbox.

"The second reason behind this choice is purely linked to production. Having a single target platform means that we can optimize the game even further, because we only have one type of - console - hardware to support."

We don't have the funds for multi platform. We can only optimize games on the "easier" said console to develop for. Plus, we really don't want to take on MGS anyway. That game rocks! Opps, did I say that out loud?

I think that's a good decision, the game belongs to MS, Ubisoft games have many glitches let them have a single platform so there would be less.
