    Are the new Splinter Cell levels (Vselka) exclusive to the preorder or will they be available via Xbox Live? You're certainly not getting anything special with Kola Cell given it's already available through XBL and, for those not connected, via Official Xbox Magazine's game disc. If Vselka is no different I don't see the benefit.

    That said I don't expect Rainbow Six is going to need much help. Most people have enjoyed Splinter Cell and/or Ghost Recon are likely to pick it up. The Clancy stuff is gold these days. I'm really interested in this game.

    They'll be available outside of the preorder disc.

    Are you sure about that? I know there are websites saying that, but the cover art for the disk specifically states "exclusive new missions" for both Ghost Recon Island Thunder and Splinter Cell.

    There's a news story on GameSpot and Gamers.com that say the levels will be available for download, as well. The disc is more or less for the people with SC/GR but not XBL.

    They may be available for download, but there is no information regarding when. Remember how long it took for Kola Cell to make it to the OXM disc? And it wouldn't make much sense to release them via XBL before the Rainbow 6 preorder campaign dies.

    It's definitely about time that there are some extra levels for S.C.

    Great game but it's been almost 1 year since it came out and all we got is 1 extra level. No where near enough, imho, for all the pre-hype about numerous extra downloadable levels.

    ...for some reason, the number 8 sticks in my head as the number of extra levels Ubi was supposed to have for S.C.

    Given their track record on the levels, I think I'll just grab the disc instead of waiting...and waiting....

    I picked this up Friday evening at EB. First off I'm not one for squad games just not my thing, but the demo of RainbowSix 3 kicks ass! The voice command is awsome as are the graphics (it uses the Splinter Cell engine). Had to work today so hopefully I'll get to try the new Splinter Cell missions tonight.

    James I tryed that code after having to regester with the site and it told me, "The gift certificate number is invalid."
    I am thinking it would only be valid with your membership.
    I have heard some really good things about the disk though.
    So for that price I was sold.. I wish it worked. How did you get that code anyway?

    It's looking like this game is going to rock. Flash bang, baby.

    Howie, there are 2 blanks on the order page. The top one is for gift certificate codes and the one below it is for coupon codes. Enter the code into the coupon code blank and it will take $10 off your order total. It sounds like you might have accidentally put the code in as a gift certificate.

    Happy gaming.[​IMG]

    Thanks for the discount code, James!

    I've been on the fence about this game, but with the $10 off and the demo disk (with the SC missions) it's more than worth it.

    This demo rocks! The voice recognition is some serious next-level stuff! The gameplay is easily recognized as Splinter Cell engine, but with a unique blending of a team atmosphere- it's hard to explain, but fun as hell! I'm a casual Clancy game fan, but after checking out this demo I am all over Rainbow Six 2 [​IMG]

    Stupid question, where can I get the demo. It looks awesome and I'm a Splinter Cell fan, but I haven't tried the squad-based Tom Clancey games. I'd like to give it a try.

    Tyler DJW, It is available as a pre-order for Rainbow Six 3 at Ubisoft.com, Electronics Boutique, or Gamestop.
