Ubisoft Confirms Splinter Cell Trilogy
The high-definition remakes just keep coming, and that's a good thing for PlayStation 3 owners.
It's even better when we're talking about games that were simply best played on the Xbox (in comparison to the PS2 versions). Ubisoft has revealed that a Splinter Cell Trilogy for the PS3 is scheduled to arrive next year. Including HD reincarnations of Splinter Cell, Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, stealth aficionados ought to be plenty happy with the announcement. Ubisoft has also delivered the Prince of Persia Trilogy and we know about the new Tomb Raider Trilogy from Crystal Dynamics...so I'm sorta thinking we can get a Suidoden Collection in HD. Of course, there's really no reason for high-definition for such games but...well, one can hope, no? As for SC, I've played every last entry (except for Conviction) and it's one of my all-time favorite franchises. Those who call it a "poor man's MGS" haven't played it.
I play MGS for the story and characters; I play SC for the authentic stealth gameplay. There's a very big difference. I don't think any SC was as good as either of the last two MGS installments but then again...few games are. If you missed out on the SC experiences last generation, this trilogy would be a perfect excuse to catch up.
