After many delays, Splinter Cell: Conviction got a firm release date on the Xbox 360 and PC last week, when Ubisoft announced that the Tom Clancy-inspired stealth action adventure would debut February 23. Ubisoft will apparently be commemorating the game's launch with a special-edition package, if a product listing for a Splinter Cell: Conviction Collector's Edition in Australian retailer JB Hi-Fi's online database is to be believed.
According to the listing, the special-edition Splinter Cell: Conviction package has many of the customary pack-ins associated with premium game bundles. Namely, the Collector's Edition includes a "making of" DVD, a 32-page comic book that recounts the intervening in-game period between 2006's well-received Splinter Cell Double Agent and Conviction, as well as exclusive in-game content.
That's not all, though, because the product listing indicates that the Collector's Edition will also include a figurine of grizzled protagonist Sam Fisher. As one more added perk, the package will apparently also include a free download for 2005's well-rated Splinter Cell Chaos Theory through Xbox Live, which is otherwise available for 1,200 MSP ($15).
The Xbox 360 version of the Splinter Cell: Conviction Collector's Edition pack is currently listed for A$119.00 ($103), with the PC installment falling in at A$99.00 ($86). However, it is worth noting that Australian games often bear a substantial markup. Ubisoft North America reps had not responded to GameSpot's request for additional details and pricing information for the Collector's Edition as of press time.
