Splinter Cell Blacklist PC Confirmed

The official announcement for Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist has word on plans for a PC edition of the just-announced stealth/action sequel. Here's the E3 trailer and here's the press release:

Today, at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Ubisoft® unveiled the development of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist, the next blockbuster title in the critically acclaimed Tom Clancy franchise. The game will be available worldwide for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC in spring 2013.

As the first production project from Ubisoft Toronto, with support from Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Shanghai, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist delivers a gripping modern-day special-ops storyline with a new level of technical innovation and quality. The game includes voice recognition features on KinectT for Xbox 360®, an arsenal of new gadgets and reinvented classic weapons and a new "Killing-in-Motion" fighting style, which allows players to strike with lethal precision by marking and executing multiple enemies in one fluid motion.

In the game, a group of rogue nations have had enough of the United States' military presence in their countries. In an effort to force the withdrawal of the U.S. forces, they mastermind "The Blacklist," a countdown of escalating terrorist attacks on U.S. assets. Given a presidential mandate and the power to act above the law, players take on the role of lethal operative Sam Fisher. Outfitted with Sam's infamous tactical suit and goggles, players will infiltrate terrorist cells while using ruthless interrogation methods to extract crucial information to prevent the next Blacklist attack.

The thrilling storyline and wide range of intense, eye-opening missions will propel players to find those responsible for these deadly assaults by any means necessary. Throughout the game, Sam and Fourth Echelon seek out their missions aboard a new Mobile Command Center housed inside a stealth aircraft. Ready to take off at a moment's notice, Fourth Echelon is equipped with unlimited resources and cutting-edge technology including a Strategic Mission Interface that reports global events in real time.

"Ubisoft Toronto has taken great care to develop an evolutionary Sam Fisher experience that takes the franchise to dramatic new heights," said Maxime Beland, creative director at Ubisoft. "With exciting gameplay enhanced by full motion-capture performances, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist offers a highly cinematic experience that will immerse fans and gamers new to the series in an intricate, action-packed adventure."

As for my analogy, I'm not really sure what you find wacky about it. Makes perfect sense, really. Expectations are determined by labels. That's why labels are important. We rely on labels to make life easier. If I recognize a label, I expect it to be accurate. If I buy a Coke, it should taste like a Coke, not a Pepsi or Dr. Pepper. Likewise, if I buy a Splinter Cell game, it should play like a stealth game, as established by all the other games that carry that label.

You may not care about labels and that's fine but you should at least understand why others consider them important.

The common sense difference there is Coke is always the same fucking thing, every time you have it. Games inherently change over time and with each release, even if they are built to be extremely similar to previous games in that series.

What you call logical reliance on a label and not obsessing over game coverage I call being an uneducated consumer. Why the fuck would anyone drop $60 on any media product without knowing more than the title of it? Insanity.
