It's a good day to be a fan of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Conviction
for two reasons.
First: Ubisoft, Microsoft, and GameStop have teamed up to create a nationwide event on April 1. Ten locations throughout the US (including Boston, Chicago, NYC among others) will have the game's co-op missions available for play. Gamers will also have chances to win all kinds of cool prizes. Full details including locations and prizes are in the press release.
Second: Johnny Cash teams up with Sam Fisher to kick butt and chew bubble gum. Apparently, there's no more bubble gum to be found in the new trailer Ubisoft released for Splinter Cell Conviction
