Conviction was originally set for a simultaneous release on Xbox 360 and PC

Ubisoft’s most recent release schedule has revealed a two week delay for the PC version of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction.

It was supposed to be released on April 16th, the same day as the 360 version, but PC gamers will now have to wait until the 30th to get their hands on the game which 360 users have already had a demo of for a few days now.

Ubisoft really haven’t been doing their PC market any favours recently…

According to MetaCritic, the best console for quality games in 2009 was the PS3

Metacritic, the renowned website that aggregates review scores from various sources, recently announced their top games and consoles based on various stats and figures.

In terms of consoles, the Wii came in last place with only 28% of their overwhelming 362 games (almost one every day) with an average rating of 75 or higher. It was then followed by the two handhelds in the Nintendo DS and PSP, with the DS around 2.5 times as many games as the PSP in 2009. Next was the Xbox 360 with a median metascore of 70, followed by the PC with a median of 72.5. I know what you’re thinking: “He missed out the PS3 down there with the Wii and DS, right?”. Well no actually, shockingly enough, according to metacritic, the top format for quality games in 2009 was in fact the PS3. The top rated game of 2009 was also on the PS3, in the form of the brilliant Uncharted 2.

Well I doubt anybody expected that, but metacritic is usually a very reliable source for finding out how good games are, given the fact that they take averages from many reliable sources. So well done to Sony I guess.
