Ubisoft’s Max Beland has said Splinter Cell will probably end up coming to PS3 and other platforms after the release of Conviction in April.

But Conviction is a fully-fledged exclusive on Xbox 360 and PC, with no release planned for other consoles.

He went on to further say:

“I joined Splinter Cell after the exclusivity deal with Microsoft had already been signed, but there’s no reason why Splinter Cell couldn’t be on the PS3,”.

“Conviction? No, because of the exclusivity deal. I know people keep talking about maybe, maybe not, [but] at Ubisoft Montreal I haven’t seen anyone working on PS3 for Conviction.

“If Microsoft wants an exclusivity deal, they don’t call me, it’s Yves [Guillemot, Ubisoft CEO] dealing with the business people. But yeah, I guess we could even be a PS3 exclusive if there’s a deal that makes people happy there.”

I really can’t believe that this series is still alive and kicking? Good for them though if they keep making good games.

I’m excited for Natal and intrigued to see how it’s going to play out with gaming. With the right price and proper use for games, I would buy it.

Ubisoft has announced that Assassin’s Creed II has sold 1.6 million copies in its first week of release worldwide.

This number is not surprising due to the critical reception and internet buzz surrounding the November 17th release. If you compare these numbers to the previous Assassin’s Creed game release, Assassin’s Creed II is up 32% in sales.

I played it and finished it and I will be eagerly awaiting the third installment, even though nothing has been said yet.
