While Xbox 360 owners have been able to experience next-gen Splinter Cell for a few months now, PlayStation 3 owners will be able to get their hands on Sam Fisher's latest adventure in March 2007. Ubisoft has announced that the Splinter Cell Double Agent will be released worldwide in time for the March European launch of the PlayStation 3.

It won't be a straight port either. As well as new multiplayer maps and skins, the PlayStation 3 game will take advantage of the system's Sixaxis controller - although how it's going to be used hasn't been revealed.

"Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Double Agent is already a best-seller and has set a new standard for the Splinter Cell series," said Yves Guillemot, CEO at Ubisoft. "I am sure that Double Agent will prove to be a must-have title for PlayStation 3 system."

Look for more on the game leading up to its March 2007 release.
