any chance for PS3 version

#1 Posted by masterken (109 posts) -

i'm hoping that its just a timed exclusive deal and I will eventually get to play this on PS3. It makes no sense for Ubisoft not to bring it over. Anyone know if they had stated what kind of exclusive it is?

I think it'll be timed, heard a magazine cover had SC:C on PS3 on it.
 
FYI I sold my PS3 so no bias for me.

Maybe in the future, If this stayed exclusive wouldn't it be the only Splinter Cell to do so? i remember i played a lot of the on Sony consoles. And after all Ubisoft is a third party publisher and as far as i know MS don't own any of the IP.

It'll come out like a year later with DLC packed in and other stuff to make up for the fact that it wasn't released simultaneously on both consoles.  That usually seems to be thing that happens right?

Yep the whole exclusive thing drives us gamers crazy, its the most evil thing the video game industry has come up with.

I would say a pretty good chance of it coming out eventually for the PS3.

Wow; did I really just type "Hope say?" Man, I'm a moron; Hope so.

Well, lets look at the facts:
 
1.) It's a third-party game
 
By that alone we can assume it'll see a PS3 release sometime this generation. The quality of said port remains unknown, as Double Agent was terrible on PS3.

correction: Double Agent was terrible regardless of system. I played it on my 360 before i sold it.

My magic ball points to ... not likely.

I think that it's going to remain an exclusive to Microsoft systems. I'm not entirely sure why, however.

@Bionicicide: I think you're thinking of Portal 2.

Double Agent was just terrible period.

@masterken:  i liked double agent. i replayed it just recently. i tried to figure out what people hate about it, but it's just a decent game on the real.

Possibly, but I don't see why you'd wait unless you didn't own an Xbox 360 or decent PC.

the cover art doesn't have "only on xbox and pc" on it.
 
I'd say it's pretty certain, just a matter of time.

Remember that Ubisoft is a third-party company. In all likelihood Microsoft has a timed deal with Ubisoft.  For Splinter Cell to remain X-Box exclusive would be just to throw away money. 
 
And with all this DRM nonsense, you can count on the fact that a PS3 version would sell a damn sight more than the PC version.

@Lamashtu: But it would also cost them more money to port the game to the PS3, since the game was made for the 360 and PC. And the sales from the 360 version alone would be way above a 1-year later PS3 version.

@xyzygy: 
i highly doubt that the cost to port it would be more than the gain from selling it on ps3. People will still buy it even if its a year old.

It will almost certainly arrive on the PS3 at some point in the future. Probably just a 1 year exclusive, which Microsoft probably regret paying for now. The Splinter Cell name doesn't carry the same weight as it did in 2007.
