Splinter Cell PT temporary exclusive Xbox ?

Splinter Cell PT temporary exclusive Xbox ?

Since this morning there is a rumor everywhere on the forums about an exclusivity of Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow on the Xbox. Being the great journalist I am (joking...) I contacted my friend at Ubisoft and he confirmed that indeed the game seems on track for an exclusivity, but not for the reasons everyone thought. In fact it's quite simple, the PS2/GC version is taking much longer to finish than the Xbox one (just like for the first Splinter Cell in fact). So it looks like the game will be available first on the Xbox at the official date, then a few weeks later on the other platforms. As far as he could tell there is no financial exclusivity there.
I'm waiting for him to call back to get more informations.
Update : UBI Soft officially denies that the PS2 and NGC versions of the games will be late. I'll recontact my friend as soon as possible to know what's going on exactly. If there is no report then excuse me for spreading a false rumour.
Update 2: Ubisoft just announced in his trimester results that both NGC and PS2 versions of the game are indeed postponed. Only the PC and Xbox versions will be out on the 25th of March !

Hey Blim, there is a typo under the second update. The second sentence should not say that the PS2 version will be out on the 25th. Unless you meant to say that it will be out along with the Xbox & only the Gamecube version will be delayed.

Whoops, I did the same mistake on another forum. I guess I was tired last night ...

    asdfg The forced camera of the early games served a similar purpose but with a diffrent technique. (8 minutes ago)

    asdfg @alimokrane: This game is not supposed to make you comfortable though. Horror games want to make you uneasy and that's what a fp perspective does. (9 minutes ago)

    alimokrane For me, it's not about being dizzy, I simply want to see who I am playing as.. it makes it much more comfortable. (1 Hour ago)

    asdfg @GriftGFX: Thankfully it doesn't make me nauseous either. Played through plenty low fov games on the 360 for example Bioshock. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I tend to play around the 110-120 degree range though.. so something like 70 is pretty jarring anyway. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX I don't have any real "problems" playing in a low FOV but seeing less is always worse. (1 Hour ago)

    Melmoth that's why i'm a bit cautious about RE7. but there's a demo, so i could try that one first. (1 Hour ago)
