Now I’m no fan of Ubisoft but when I read that Ubisoft is going to re-release the first 3 Splinter Cell games in one package, the news was almost enough to make me a fan of Ubisoft.
Ubisoft will have high definition updates of the original Splinter Cell, Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow and Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, and will release the package sometime in 2011. Now I’m not a big fan of “stealth games,” but this is a welcome move and I wonder why more game publishers don’t do the same thing.
Old games like Splinter Cell may be great but players are not going to buy them unless it’s for nostalgia. However if you update the game, and then package it together with other games, suddenly it becomes very attractive for people to buy the games.
Not only will this get sales, it may also get you fans for the franchise which in the long run is what developers really want. So this is one gamer that hope more developers will jump on the bandwagon.
