splinter_cell_blacklist_special_editions

Ubisoft have gone and committed Splinter Cell: Blacklist to the clandestine Special Edition Silly Names Initiative that’s evidently been uniting major publishers behind a common cause for the past couple of years. If you live in Europe, the Middle East or Africa, they’ve four silly-titled versions of the game to sell to you, variously including graphic novels, figurines, unlockable maps and whatnot. And for one edition, they’ve forgotten to stop covering their their creative tracks and actually named it after a Bourne film. Don’t believe me? Take a look.
