PlayStation loyalists may be unfamiliar, but we promise that Splinter Cell is a great stealth/action franchise that deserves a bigger audience.

We knew the series would be coming to the PlayStation 3 and now we have all the relevant details on the Splinter Cell Trilogy . As revealed at the PlayStation Blog , Ubisoft PR coordinator Alex Monney said they want to "provide the players with the best possible content." Therefore, they're porting the PC versions of the three titles in question, as they had "more content and detail compared to the PS2 versions." Featuring brilliant high-definition visuals, stereoscopic 3D, and new Trophies, we'll get the following: the original Splinter Cell , Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow , and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory . In our estimation, all are well worth playing, and remember that SC never really tried to be like Metal Gear Solid ; stealth fans will tell you the two franchises offer very different experiences.

I've played every SC installment and although I think they went seriously awry with the latest – Conviction – these three titles here remain three of my favorite games. Chaos Theory is still the best, I believe. If you missed out last generation, you gotta give this Trilogy a try.

Pretty sweet, maybe after conviction they will go back to stealth and bring the game to the PS3.

Hopefully, Ubisoft's mail bin was loaded with so much convict-hate-mail they'll return to their roots with the series.

Overall, I liked Conviction. It has some good moments and features. The problem was trying to ignore what SC was compared to what it's trying to be. It went from being more of a simulator to being faster action with heavier shooting.
They should;ve just made it a TC: Splinter Cell "Rising" game where it's part of the universe but with a different identity. So fans know that it isn't trying to re-write the series history.

Really? It's so cheap now and i want a stealth game as there is little of them.

Checked DA on Youtube and it looked OK.

I was opting for DA as it's this gen. Is it guaranteed that i'll get a better stealth experience with an older title and that the recommendations aren't coming from nostalgia areas??

I would be looking forward to this regardless, but I'm very disappointed in the fact that I'll likely get more enjoyment out of this than I did 'Conviction.' Hopefully the series' next official installment gets back on the right track.

But I'm also quite happy to hear that the PC versions are the ones being ported, since I played 'Splinter Cell' and 'Chaos Theory' on the PS2, and only ever played 'Pandora Tomorrow' on the Xbox.

I'll be getting this eventually. I've only played chaos theory which I loved. My only qualms with it was the fact that it had coop missions, but me and my friend beat them in 2 sittings. Don't remember the hours, but it really didn't take long.

Still I look forward to getting it and playing the first 2 and replaying chaos theory.

Getting this day one. This is still my favorite multiplatform series ever, even though Conviction was complete garbage. I really dont even count that turd as part of my beloved Splinter Cell series.

I hated how they removed a lot of the good stealth gameplay, but I liked how Sam changed for the story from basically only stealth to Jack Bauer style, just wish they had kept all of the stealth gameplay to so one could play the old fashioned way if they wanted too.

Exactly. You could go balls-out shooting everyone in the first three, but the game was never about that. In Conviction, you were encouraged shoot every one you see with no consequenses. If I wanted to do that, Id just play Gears of Duty or Call of War or whatever is popular nowadays. It just doesnt belong in Splinter Cell.

Saw Pandora Tomorrow yesterday selling for $16. I was about to pick it up when I remembered this collection. Can't wait for it.
Peace.

I cant wait to get this! I love Splinter Cell. It would be nice for Conviction to come to the PS3, my replacement 360 died and I don't want to get a new one.

Thank goodness. That's great that they're porting them from the PC versions. The Xbox versions were essentially ports of the PC games. I'll be certain to add this to my library at some point.

Man, too many games to play and so little time.

When I saw the picture of Splinter Cell Conviction I thought that the game was coming to PS3. Now I'm kinda mad that its not.

Only ever played Chaos Theory, but that was a hell of a good time so I'm looking forward to this. Plus, the fact that they're porting the PC versions makes it even better.

Hi:

Well, We NEED a REMAKE of Metal Gear Solid 3 – Subsistence, not an upgrade, don't you think? About Splinter Cel HD, that's good news but, I hope they put the Co-Op missions in "Chaos Theory".
