We have some great news for Xbox 360 and PC owners looking to pick up Splinter Cell: Conviction now, as Ubisoft has just confirmed that a demo is on the way soon, allowing you to try before you buy.
As reported from Eurogamer, Ubisoft?s Creative Director Maxime B?lane confirmed the news in a recent Q&A interview.
They didn?t go into any more specifics on an exact date or details of the demo though, as Maxime added: ?Yes, there will be one. I can?t tell you what map or when it?s going to be released yet. My lips are sealed,?
Does that mean its a multiplayer demo as well? That would be even better, for sure. Let us know your thoughts on the news.
I don't mind waiting a bit longer, but at least they're releasing a PC demo!(Xbox and PC) Splinter Cell: Conviction Demo Coming Thursday

Gamesppy confirmed today that the latest, upcoming installment in the Tom Clancy?s Splinter Cell franchise, Splinter Cell Conviction, would have a demo available through Xbox LIVE. Gamespy said Producer of the game, Alex Parizeau, confirmed that Xbox users will receive the demo on Thursday, March 18th and PC gamers will also gave access to the demo shortly after. Splinter Cell: Conviction is set for release exclusively on Xbox 360 and PC on April 13.
Producer Alex Parizeau about the demo, ?The biggest thing you?ll see when playing the demo is the change of pace,? Parizeau said. ?The stealth-action dynamic is fast paced and very different from the past.?
at a warehouse for WH Smiths, basically got called into the office today told "there's not enough work, we're going to have to let you go" and that was it. got shown the door and it was job over. Not overly concerned though since it wasn't a job i was planning on keeping. if i had found something better i would have been gone in a shot.You lost your job? Bummer! Where did u work? I'm guessing this is a due to the recession thing eh, you can have my job if u like. I fucking hate every minute of it!!
If there is a bigger Splinter Cell fan than myself, I haven't yet met them; but in their zeal to promote the newest iteration, Ubisoft has caused Sam Fisher to tweet. And I don't mean they've made him chirp, which would be preferable. They've given him a Twitter account where he tweets in a supremely earnest way about how tormented his shit is.
This is something you've got to be very careful with. It's possible to make something like this work, but (ironically for a marketing maneuver) its connections to the "product" need to be largely oblique - it must manifest a more subtle objective. You can't have your game's protagonist posting screenshots, and he absolutely one hundred percent can't formulate a link to the game's promotional website(!!!).
It goes without saying that live status updates and furtive stalking may be deeply incompatible.
The demo for Splinter Cell: Conviction is a fascinating thought exercise, and one I would suggest you undertake. They've done the Ubisoft Thing, and you'll know what I mean, where in the course of trying to make something more streamlined they've managed to invent some new kind of complexity.
I've been trying to see what people think of it, on account of it being so weird, but there's one or two posts tops before the thread ceases to be about Splinter Cell and instead becomes a discussion about Ubisoft's DRM scheme. If it sounds like we're about to embark on another discussion of Digital Rights Management, we're not - though as a topic, it almost always warrants it. I mainly think it's sad that instead of engaging with some of the interesting ideas in their newest games (particularly the completely naked boardgame underpinnings of Ruse and Settlers) every discussion quickly struggles to include all the necessary genuflections. Ubisoft brought it on themselves, certainly. I just think DRM is less interesting, as a rule, than videogames.
see, now after reading that i have to go to those forums and just post in there "stop whining and go outside, you'll be introduced to a concept called a 'woman' and maybe learn a thing or two'."I really enjoyed the demo. I only have one issue and it's a gun thing.
Automatic weapons don't continue to make the clicky sound when they go dry!
Beyond that, I really enjoyed it.
What ever you do, don't go on Ubi's forums about the game. Holy shit, what a bunch of fucking babies.
