Splinter Cell: Double Agent and Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, with the suddenness of a snapped shoelace have burst from the abyss that is the local videogame used section, are ready to purchase on Microsoft’s ever-growing Games on Demand service, kinda. For some reason, probably a good one, Splinter Cell: Double Agent is not actually available in North America. It’s also not available in Germany, Japan, Australia, Korea or New Zealand. Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter, or GRAW as it is tactfully abbreviated, is available to everyone who doesn’t live in Australia, Korea or New Zealand but does have XBL. Sorry Kangaroo/Kiwi/StarCraft lovers.
Both seem to cost what roughly equates to $30 but with regional lock-outs and different currency, not to mention Microsoft’s insistence on 4/5ths fun-money conversion systems, makes it pretty tough to really tell. If you don’t live in any of the countries listed above and you are still interested then you can check prices for GRAW and Splinter Cell here. You will have to log into your Gold account, you have been warned.
