Splinter Cell, POP HD trilogies hitting Xbox 360?

United States ratings board lists all six titles for release on Microsoft's console; currently confirmed only for PlayStation 3.

58 Comments

No Caption Provided Source: Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) product listings.

What we heard: Over the past few months, publisher Ubisoft has announced that it would unleash Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia HD Trilogy packs on the PlayStation 3 beginning March 22. Now, it appears the three-packs might venture outside of Sony's console and onto Microsoft's.

The prince gets an HD overhaul in the upcoming three-pack.
The prince gets an HD overhaul in the upcoming three-pack.

The ESRB has posted listings for every title within both packs for release on the Xbox 360. Those titles are Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones HD, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time HD, and Prince of Persia: The Warrior Within HD.

And on the Sam Fisher side of things, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell HD, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory HD, and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow HD all have listings connected to the Xbox 360.

The PS3 has welcomed a string of remastered trilogy packs lately. The God of War Collection and the Sly Collection were released late last year, and a Team Ico Collection is also slated to debut exclusively on the PS3. Also, the Tomb Raider Trilogy will debut alongside the Prince of Persia and Splinter Cell trilogies on March 22 on Sony's console.

The official story: A Ubisoft rep told GameSpot "We have no plans at this time of releasing the Pop and Splinter Cell HD trilogies on Xbox 360."

Bogus or not bogus?: There's a slight possibility that the ESRB listings could be clerical errors. But rarely has the ratings board listed something that didn't hit the market…eventually. Looking not bogus.

I think it will fit the 360 just fine, which it would be cool for 360 owners to own the classics as well.

For everyone who thinks Blu-Ray Gaming is better, why are most of the PS3 games only 720p? Why do we have to install so many games onto the hard drive on PS3. I would rather change discs than have to install onto hard drive (Metal Gear Solid 4 for example)

@JasPlun actually it uses dvd9... basically a dual layered dvd. so it should fit on just fine or maybe a download/install.

If there's any justice left in the world, the PoP and SC HD compilations will hit the 360 (and PC), too. After all the so-called Xbox 360 "exclusives" that have been released for the PS3 versus the amount of PS3 "exclusives" hitting the 360... ugh. The amount of Wii (and especially the ol' GameCube) "exclusives" that have been released on the competing consoles is so far gone, I don't believe there's any amount 3rd party justice that could be brought to Nintendo's situation. What a crime. This whole console exclusivity selling point has been so horribly abused over the years that these game companies could be labeled as having out right lied to the consumers with little to prove otherwise. It's gotten way out of hand. Now a days, we have various exclusive pre-order DLC offered through multiple retailers as an incentive with no guarantee any of it will be available for purchase later. Which, unfortunately they typically aren't. So basically we are being forced to choose an exclusive character, weapon, item, etc. based on where we buy the title? The upcoming Mortal Kombat title comes immediately to mind.

If someones already put this, I'm sorry. All of the collections the PS3 have had so far were for exclusives to past PlayStation systems. Splinter Cell and PoP were not, so it would make sense and be fair to put them on the 360 too.

Well Valve fit five games on one disc the orange box, and Nintendo fit 3 metroid prime games on on disc, so I reckon Prince and Splinter Cell trilogy would fit on one DVD

Prince of Persia HD trilogy looks good since I never got those games, but I already got the Splinter Cell games. Chaos Theory is still the best Splinter Cell by the way.

I'm fine with this, but if the 360 version obviously ends up better I'll kill myself. I have 35 360 games and 5 PS3 games because of multiplatform difference, if they expect us to buy PS3 games how am I supposed to do it if dev's are too lazy to optimize games for the damn console? Do it like Dragon Age, where PC>PS3>360. Now THAT made sense, didn't it?

I'm also curious as to why some of you think a BlueRay version is any differant from a DVD. Sure the BR can hold more data... but how many games have been on multiple disks on the Xbox after 5 years? The last year has seen games come out on 2-3 disks... and they work just fine. In many cases games that come out on both Xbox and PS3, the Xbox version scores higher. The only benefit to BlueRay over DVD is its larger capacity, that has nothing to do with content quality or output. So again... just curious why these BlueRay editions are so nessecary?

LOL well for those of you that are making your sarcastic comments about MS.... Yes they have wised up. They figured out that people would pay for these updated titles. So, like any good buisness they changed their mind and are now offering these up for those that didn't get to play back when they had a PS2. I'd say that is a big + in MS column showing that they are willing to change with demand unlike Sony has been this gen. Just look at how hard Sony is going after some guys that found security flaws in their system. No talk about fixing it on their end, just trying to ruin the lives of guys apparently smarter than them. LOL

Microsoft stated they thought it was a waste of money rereleasing classic titles. So it has to be a clerical error or Microsoft finally wised up.

@GatsuBlackSword I think, but I'm not quite sure, POP SOT HD is already on the PSN... But again, I'm not sure. Maybe I was fuming because I couldn't buy the God of War games individually without subscribing to PS plus and the anger clouded my vision. Either way... I AGREE. 8D

Well, they were multiplatform to begin with, so it only makes sense that they stay that way. I already heard Ubisoft's Beyond Good and Evil HD was going to both consoles so why wouldn't these? I'm still gonna get 'em for the PS3, but this is good news for all.

Nothing wrong with that, it's good that the 360 owners get to share the wealth.

They need a Metal Gear Collection. Also, they should make an HD remake collection with many of the best RPGs from the PS2.

That would be great because I love replaying the Splinter Cell games. It's my favorite series, even having both systems I would like to see it on xbox.

HD is such a gimmick. The PoP games look a tad better, but the port is so poor. Character models look weird and the sound is awkward. But maybe it was a screwup on Ubisoft's part. Good buy if you haven't played them already.
