Original Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon coming to Playstation 3

Recommended Posts

Admittedly I am a little late with this, but Examiner.com ran a story a couple of weeks ago stating that original Ghost Recon will soon be released for Playstation 3. An interesting tidbit of the article is the fact that it names Sony Computer Entertainment as publisher.

Original Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon coming to Playstation 3

The latest listing update from the ESRB has revealed that the first Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon game will be heading to the Playstation 3 system in the near future. You can check out some screenshots from the original version of the tactical shooter in the slideshow at the top of this article and more details below.

Sony Computer Entertainment is listed as the publisher for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon, making it extremely likely that the game will be re-released as a Playstation 2 Classics title on the Playstation Store. The tactical shooter received an M (for Mature) rating due to contents relating to blood, gore and violence.

The original version Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon was developed by Red Storm Entertainment (now known as Ubisoft Red Storm), the same studio that went on to create the recently-released Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier as well as the upcoming Tom Clancy's Rainbow 6: Patriots. The Playstation 2 version came out in North America on December 1, 2002.

If you mean in regard to gore and gruesome special effects, I agree. But maybe the M(ature) rating refers to required mental faculties, deliberation, patience, and tactical abilities. On that scale, most modern games indeed cater to the cerebral capacity of fruit flies.

Hmm... Intresting ! Long live PS3! Only one thing did surprise me:

I did think when its a game to PS3, they should try to make the Graphic much more better, maps bigger, etc.

But okay okay,

If it's coming out on PS3 then it's coming out on Xbox 360 and probably PC as well. If it's like the other re-releases then it will have improved visuals.

Let's hope so! But of course it would be un-moddable, amiright?

Thinking about it again, I find it very unlikely, because the PC and PS2 versions were not exactly the same.

Don't get your hopes up, guys. As the article states it is "extremely likely" that they'll release the game as a "Playstation 2 Classics" title, meaning they simply re-pack the old PS2 version to be PS3-compaitble. So I don't expect any kind of visual improvements, and of course (officially) there will be no modding possible on PS3.

Nevertheless, a re-release of the original Ghost Recon on PS3 exposes the game to a new crowd, and who knows, maybe there are still people out there looking for a little more in a shooter than that "kill, die, respawn, rinse, repeat" 30-seconds gameplay currently on offer out there. Just imagine having the original Ghost Recon next to that Future Soldier mess on your PS3... shouldn't be too hard to realize why the former is still played and modded after more than a decade, while the latter was pretty much dead on arrival.

I'm so happy that I found this website! I used to play the original Ghost Recon and GRIT on the black xbox. My friends and I played until the very last day on the original Xbox Live. Since then, we play call of duty and other fps games on the xbox 360. We always talk about our original Ghost Recon days! There are about 20 of us who are dying to play the original Ghost Recon and GRIT!

Is there anymore news on the PS3 release of the original Ghost Recon? Do you think it will be released on the Xbox 360 too? I'm just curious! Thanks!

They gave Splinter Cell the same treatment, and completely disabled multiplayer while they were at it. And it was only re-released on PS3. I wouldn't get my hopes up here until they make a real announcement.
