Tom Clancy makes it a triple on Xbox

US gamers to get cheap-as-chips Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six 3 bundle, but it won't be infiltrating the UK

Those lucky US Xbox owners might not be able to decide who to elect as their president, but they certainly know a good deal when they see it.

And Splinter Cell, Ghost Recon and Rainbow Six 3 for $39.99 is indeed a good deal, even if all three games are starting to show Sam Fisher-esque tufts of grey hair.

The three-DVD Xbox bundle is due to hit US shelves before the end of the month. It would obviously be a great Christmas present, a cracking opportunity to catch up on some seminal Xbox titles, or just a cheap way to pass some quality gaming hours.

But, unfortunately, it doesn't look like us deprived UK and European gamers will get the chance. We asked Ubisoft if the Tom Clancy bundle would be storming UK stores and they told us that there were no plans to bring it to these shores. Boo!

Ah well. At least we have a head of state that we can all agree on... don't we?
