Grab your glowing green triclops night vision goggles thingy, Splinter Cell: Conviction has made its way onto the Xbox One backwards compatibility programme.
There’s currently an Ubisoft sale on at the Xbox Store at the moment, with discounts up to 70% across a range of titles. There’s also an Anime sale, if you’re into that.
One of the games with a whacking great discount is Splinter Cell: Conviction, another of the various Ubisoft properties with a Tom Clancy prefix for its Sunday name. It currently has 50% off, which is a tidy saving, but when we wrote the initial story about said sale, that was only useful for Xbox 360 players.
Now Splinter Cell: Conviction is an Xbox One backwards compatibility game.
If you’re got an Xbox 360 disc lying around, then you’ll of course just be able to pop it in your console and play. If however you don’t have the original game, but you do fancy splintering some cells on Xbox one, then that 50% off deal is probably looking pretty good right about now.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
