TGS ’09: Splinter Cell “is meant for Xbox and it will show”


Ubisoft has strong feelings about keeping Splinter Cell: Conviction only on the Xbox 360. They’ve really strengthened their relation with Microsoft in working on the game, suggesting that all their hard work will show.

“There’s going to be a really strong partnership with Microsoft,” producer, Alexandre Parizeau told CVG this week. “Obviously we’ll do everything that we can do to make sure that the experience is indebted with whatever the Xbox has to offer.

“I want to make sure that when the game hits the shelves the disc will ‘meld’ with your Xbox 360 – it’s meant for the Xbox 360 and it will show,” he said.

Parizeau praised the fact that they’re able to focus on one platform only, full utilizing whatever they’re trying to create in the game. He said “it’s really cool to be able to focus technology on one platform, to be able to really exploit it to the maximum of its capacity.

“We’ve been working with Microsoft for a while now. We’ve been working with their engineers – we’ve had super good feedback from them on all sorts of different things. It’s been a really good partnership with them.

“They’re backing us up. There’s no question that they’re supporting the game to its fullest,” he said.
