Future Splinter Cells on PS3 Possible

The creative director of Splinter Cell: Conviction said today that there's nothing stopping future installments from appearing on the PlayStation 3 even though Conviction won't appear on the platform. Depending on what the platform holders do, Conviction could be looked back on as an anomaly among the Tom Clancy games. Edge Online asked Max Beland whether any possibility existed for Splinter Cell games to return to PlayStation. "I don't see why it wouldn't," Beland answered. "There's no reason why Splinter Cell couldn't be on the PS3." Read More

British Government Recruiting Over Xbox Live

Gaming has been prospected as an armed forces recruitment tool for years, so it was only a matter of time before online games were targeted as an avenue. It's just that the British government ended up doing it first. The Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) – a British intelligence agency working with the armed forces is initiating a recruitment drive over Xbox Live using in-game ads. The six-week campaign will target the 18-34 male demographic with streaming video banners and in-game ads. The effort will be led by GCHQ communications recruitment partner TMP Worldwide. The first time GCHQ advertised over Xbox Live was its 2007 ad campaign for job opportunities in Splinter Cell Double Agent. The drive increased traffic to its website by over 500 percent. The most famous gaming-related government recruiting tool has been the free America's Army games which seem to be proving legitimately effective. Real dynamic advertisements have been appearing in games and even on the Xbox Live dashboard for years now. A government as an advertiser in gaming seems like the next logical step. Read More

Tom Clancy's EndWar for PS3 Not "a Crappy Port"

In the developer blog for Tom Clancy's EndWar, PS3 Producer Guillaume Brunier offers assurance that his version of the upcoming title will not be "a crappy PS3 port," a fate that has been known to befall a few other games that have shared domain with the Xbox 360. He says that, first things first, it is not the team's intent to deliver a poor PS3 experience. The game will offer the exact same feature set as on the Xbox 360, "including voice command, 4 vs. 4 multi-player games and (for the first time on PS3!!!) persistent online campaign." Plus, there are going to be some Sixaxis controls included, and not as a last minute deal, but already in the version they have running. He goes on to mention that the team releasing this is the same as those who released Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 and Splinter Cell Double Agent on the PS3, and they even brought in some people from Assassin's Creed for a few months. Plus, there are some key members shared between the PS3 and 360 teams, the latter of which are just upstairs from them, leading to some cohesive teamwork. Tom Clancy's EndWar for the PS3 is scheduled to release at the same time the 360 version hits. Read More
