That’s right all you old school gamers; Ubisoft’s long awaited Splinter Cell: Conviction will allow Xbox 360 gamers to play with a friend on a single console. Notice how I only said Xbox 360 players? I betcha did you clever devil. Unfortunately, they have confirmed that there will be no split-screen functionality for PC gamers, but I’m not entirely sure how two players would do that on a single computer anyways so that’s probably not much of a surprise. With this generation’s focus on online multiplayer it’s nice to see another AAA title giving us old fogeys what we want. Sure I have friends: I’ve confirmed at least two people consider me a friend and another three lovingly referred to me as an acquaintance, so I have plenty of people to play online with. Ever since Goldeneye my love of split-screen fun hasn’t faded because there’s just no substitution for playing with people who are right next to you. It makes punching them in the mouth when they teabag your dead corpse all the more enjoyable. But I digress, on to the facts:
Splinter Cell: Conviction releases on the Xbox 360 and PC on February 23rd, 2010 amongst a slew of other colossal titles just waiting to empty unsuspecting gamers’ wallets.
