New Ghost Recon scouting PSP, Wii

Ubisoft announces two new Tom Clancy-based titles will ship for Sony's portable, Nintendo's console in November.

Over two and half years after Ubisoft bought the Tom Clancy brand outright, the French publisher has announced two more games based on the military thriller author's work. The first, Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Predator, will arrive exclusively on the PSP in November. The game was first hinted at last fall by the Australian game-ratings board and was further confirmed by an Entertainment Software Rating Board listing last month.

The PSP and Wii will be getting a double-dose of Tom Clancy in November.

Set in the Sri Lankan jungle, Predator follows a team of the elite soldiers known as Ghosts as they scout out the South Asian island in preparation for a US invasion. As in other Ghost Recon games, players will be equipped with a variety of prototype weaponry, including unmanned drones such as those featured in the 2006 hit Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter. The game will also sport a co-op mode for up to four players via ad hoc mode and three players via the PlayStation Network.

Ubisoft also announced a new Wii game, simply called Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon. Much like the 2002 original Ghost Recon, the game will be set inside a fictional near-future Russia torn apart by civil strife. It too will have a co-op player component, supporting up to two players locally with the option to drop in or drop out at anytime. The game will feature 12 missions set in several countries, including Norway, and will have an Arcade mode with online leaderboards.

The Wii Ghost Recon will also arrive in November, several months before the next Ghost Recon game, Future Soldier, ships for the PC, PlayStation 3, DS, and Xbox 360 in the first quarter of 2011. First announced in April 2009, Ghost Recon: Future Soldier gets its name from the "Future Soldier" programs being conducted by the US and its NATO allies. The initiative, currently part of the US Army's Brigade Combat Team Modernization Program, focuses on outfitting infantrymen with networked communications and high-tech equipment.

People who are not familiar with Nintendo and don't own a WII will be surprised that Nintendo is all grown up and putting R-M rated games in their consoles like Manhunt 2, No more heroes, Fatal frame etc... And yes the WII already has too much shooters but hey i cant say its a bad thing their fun to play

The New Ghost Recon Game for the Wii is probably just Future Soldier.

@johnnywpsp actually, future soldier is coming to Wii. I don't know why they didn't mention it.

@boctober I will let you have your opinion, but as far as Wii being "boring", I strongly disagree. If you take time to do some research, you can find over a dozen of fun games to play on it. Compared to GCN, I rather play the Wii instead.

@JohnnyWPSP that seems to happen a lot lately, and I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case. A lot of developers, as they seem to believe the Wii and PSP are two nice yet slightly "inferior" systems, tend to change games around a bit for the two misfit systems, eg Prince of Persia Rival Swords

Nice! I am ready to play some Ghost Recon on the PSP. This will hold me over until Future Soldier hits next year on PS3. As far as the Wii, YUCK! Such a boring system with boring games. I would rather play a Nintendo Gamecube.

I dont get it, so is there no Future Soldier coming out for PSP and WII, but instead an exclusive installment?
