Splinter Cell has traditionally appeared on every format going, all the way down to Game Boy Advance. However, for the fifth installment in the series, Ubisoft Montreal has decided to make the game for PC and Xbox 360 only. But that's a good thing, if not for PS3 fans, then
Following on from our week long preview of Splinter Cell Conviction, we have managed to secure some brand new shots and the first ever trailer of Sam Fisher's latest mission. Breaking away from the dark, lonely corridors found in previous outings, the trailer shows off some of the impressive crowd dynamics in a light and breezy park setting. Also on display is Fisher's more, shall we say, hands-on approach to dealing with his pursuers.
TimeShift, the science-bothering blaster that lets you play fast and loose with the laws of time, has now been confirmed for PlayStation 3, joining the PC and 360 versions we've already seen.
In addition, we've sifted the Internet for fact nuggets, and come up with a beauty - TimeShift's superpowers will make the leap from singleplayer to multiplayer, with the help of special Chronos Grenades.

Splinter Cell Conviction, the ambitious reinvention of the espionage action series, will feature a whole new spin on both multiplayer versus and co-op gameplay.
Co-op missions will be included but they won't resemble the double-team style of previous games, nor will they be run-throughs of the single player mode. Meanwhile, versus matchups will feature the impressive-looking civilian crowd that mills around during Sam Fisher's Washington-set escapades.
We've got a new TimeShift trailer for your eyes to enjoy, demonstrating the time-bending abilities of the Quantum Suit in style. The trailer is pre-rendered, so don't expect the finished game to look quite so gorgeous, although we can confirm the rain does stop like that when you're playing the real thing.
