There's a reason for the last-minute discount. Ubisoft reps informed GameSpot that a "random sampling" found that the USB drives included with the Splinter Cell: Conviction Collector's Editions are defective. A representative for the publisher emphasized that not all USB drives included in the package had problems, but declined to say what percentage would not work properly. The rep also declined to say what is exactly wrong with the hardware drive, saying "we do not have that information at this time."

The somewhat better news: Details on how to receive the bonus content included on defective USB drives in the Splinter Cell: Conviction collector's editions will be available on the game's official Web site on Thursday, April 15. The drives were to include a variety of bonus content, including a "Making of" feature, wallpaper, concept art, storyboards, and more information on the game's development.

The game has been through so many problems. I've canceled my PC preorder some time ago and canceled my X360 order today in favor of a Gamefly rental. I'm still hopeful to get a good play out of it, but damn. What else can go wrong?

WTF?

On the PS3 side you get all the extra content (minus DLC) on the damn disc.

On the 360/PC Side you usually get a bonus DVD with all the extra content.

I'm not a business suit, but something tells me a second DVD/1-Blu-ray disc cost less than USB drive, the plastic alone (I'm sure it has a custom modeling) cost more than the second DVD.

IDIOTS!

For me , for a long time splinter cell was the defining Xbox product just like the bandicoot was for PS1. Now without any spies vs mercs and the new crappy stlye of gameplay it isn't even an afterthought - how sad.
