Splinter Cell’s pretty-spry-for-an-old-guy hero Sam Fisher may be a master of tip-toeing about, but when his massive multimedia franchise takes even the slightest step, everyone notices. So when Ubisoft announced that an Xbox 360 Splinter Cell Conviction demo’s quickly closing on its March 18 release date, PC gamers immediately began asking about their slice of the pie. And, for better or for worse, Ubisoft answered.
“Sorry guys, tomorrow’s demo is for X360 only. There are no plans for a PC demo,” tweeted community developer Li Kuo.
On one hand, it’s just a demo. On the other hand, this happened. Whether it’s simply a case of bad timing or a purposeful disregard for PC gamers, Ubisoft’s certainly going to town on that hornets’ nest. We’re thinking it’s only a matter of time before they get stung.
