There’s been a lot of talk as to when, and even if, Splinter Cell: Conviction will get released on PlayStation 3. First the unannounced PS3 version popped up on a couple of Ubisoft resumes, only to be immediately removed. Then just today VG247 asked a Ubi exec when/if the PS3 will see Conviction. To which he responded with the typical corporate “I dunno/maybe/can’t say?”
Above: Relax - it's never not happened!
Well, you PS3 owners needn’t sulk any longer - GamesRadar can confirm that there’s a 99.999% chance Splinter Cell: Conviction will definitely hit the PS3, and with a sense of history, we can even predict when!
Ask yourself this: How often does Ubisoft release anything exclusively? Rarely. When has Splinter Cell not landed on a PlayStation console? Never. Has Splinter Cell ever appeared on Xbox as a timed exclusive? Several times! Let's look at some US release dates:
Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow
Splinter Cell Double Agent*
*We’re aware Double Agent came out on 360 before the PS3 actually existed, and also that it came out on PS2 at around the same time. But we’re still including it to give us a worst case scenario.
Okay, once we add up the number of days in between the Xbox and PlayStation release dates, we can start to get a better idea of what Splinter Cell: Conviction’s inevitable release date will be on PS3!
There ya go! Now, round to your favorite Tuesday and adjust your finances accordingly.
