Splinter Cell Conviction Gets Collector's Edition, Night Vision Not Included

Ubisoft is unfortunately foregoing offering replica Sam Fisher night-vision goggles for the collector's edition of Xbox 360 exclusive Splinter Cell Conviction attempts to make up for it elsewhere. Does it succeed?

For $79.99 the "limited run" version of Ubisoft Montreal's stealth action game—still due February 23 in North America—packs in the requisite art book, "collectible" decals, an embossed Steelbook DVD case, one Splinter Cell comic book and a pair of in-game items.

Also included is a USB drive "loaded to the max" with collectors edition exclusive content. On top of that, you'll get a game disc and manual. Those two alone are worth $59.99 at least!

For the full description, straight from Ubi, read on. It's all them from here on out.
