The PC gaming market undoubtedly takes a back seat to consoles these days, and Ubisoft and the latest Sam Fisher adventure, “Splinter Cell: Conviction” is no different. Most of the game’s marketing effort has been placed on its Xbox 360 brother.

Splinter Cell: Conviction

But the game is coming to PC and its PC system requirements surfaced today. They aren’t too show stopping.

Recommended specs:

* Supported OS: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7
* Processor: 1.8 GHz Intel Core2 Duo or 2.4 GHz AMD Athlon X2 64
* RAM: 1.5 GB Windows XP / 2 GB Windows Vista, Windows 7
* Video Card: 256 MB DirectX 9.0c–compliant video card (512 MB recommended) (see supported list*)
* Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c–compliant sound card
* DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c
* DVD-ROM: DVD-ROM drive
* Hard Drive Space: 10 GB
* Peripherals Supported: Mouse, keyboard, headset, 12-button gamepads with analog sticks
* Internet Connection: Broadband Internet connection

*Supported Video Cards at Time of Release:

* NVIDIA GeForce 7800 / 7900 / 8 / 9 / GTX series
* ATI RADEON X1800 / X1900 / HD 2000 / HD 3000 / HD 4000 / HD 5000 series
* Laptop versions of these cards may work but are NOT supported. These chipsets are the only ones that will run this game.

Note: A permanent high speed internet connection and creation of a Ubisoft account are required to play this video game at all times and to unlock exclusive content. Such content may only be unlocked one single time with a unique key. You must be at least 13 to create a Ubisoft account.

What’s unfortunate is Ubisoft’s digital rights management system, which kicks users out of their games if their Internet connection drops. Ouch.

On a better note, a demo for the title hit Xbox Live today.
