360 R6 Vegas strikes gold

Latest Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six game from Ubisoft infiltrates factory, will be shipped to stores on November 20.

The lights of the famed Las Vegas Strip have just gotten a little brighter for Ubisoft. The publisher today announced that Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas for the 360 has gone gold and will be shipping to stores on November 20.

The game sees players lacing up the combat boots of special operatives as they battle a terrorist organization that has targeted Sin City. Gamers will lead a squad into classic Vegas locations, using high-tech gadgets and good old-fashioned firepower to neutralize enemies.

This is the third Tom Clancy-branded game to come to the Xbox 360, following Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter in March and the recently released Splinter Cell Double Agent. Rainbow Six Vegas is also headed to the PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, and PC later this year.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas is rated M for Mature and will retail for $59.99. For more information, read GameSpot's previous coverage.

GoW, Viva Pinata, SC:DA, CoD3, and Rainbow 6... The 360 has absolutely dominated!

The last R6 game I owned was R63. Do you still get to plan for hours at a time only to have you plan fail because a whole team gets killed after opening a door to frag those inside?

Isn't it the Gold disk from which all the games are stamped from.

Gold means the disc's are now being mass produced so it can ship on the 20th.

Hope the minor framerate problems in the demo are sorted! This could be another AAA.

There is no way that I would ever not play Rainbow Six games. That is the most strategic series I've ever known. The new demo is awesome. Plus I even have Gears of War and Call of Duty 3 all of which i love. I'm definitely going to fit this game into my tight schedule. Time to round up my old RS6 clan for some multiplayer mayhem.

kazieChameleon, you are the only one that thinks that way. GRAW was not only good, it was a masterpiece of a game and by far the best shooter on the 360 (at least until GEARS OF WAR came out). The fact that your friendly A.I. sucked doesn't make a game bad; and the you squad was actually useful in acting as a human sheild , and for scouting out locations (that's usually what I use my squad for anyway, even if the AI is good). Sure, it reduced the tact of the game, but it didn't diminish it. You had a number of tactical options such as the drone, which updates your map with enemy locations, the camera gun (only used in one level but is probably one of the most amazing weapons to ever come in existence), and the excellent COM interface. Double Agent really was a dissapointment, but just single-player wise. The multiplayer is oustanding fun, as both spies and mercs. The single player umped up graphics and story, but the gameplay just feels... dull. Getting off topic... anyway, my point is you calling GRAW "horrendous" is simply a gross misconception of the game. (Plus, it had the best graphics on the the 360 before, of course, GEARS OF WAR came out)
