As we announced yesterday, Ubisoft held an irc community chat last night and while there was not much new being said the only REAL interesting part was the fact that Ubisoft Producer Domitille Doat revealed 'Splinter Cell : Pandora Tomorrow' has been approved by Microsoft, meaning it went gold.

In an interview with Israel-based Globes, M-Systems' President and CEO, Dov Moran, confirmed that the Xbox 2 won't have a hard disc drive. When asked about its technology development agreement with Microsoft Corporation, Mr Moran said: ”It’s a cooperation agreement. The potential isn’t clear, but it’s in the billions of dollars. Microsoft has taken the hard disk out of its Xbox. The only thing left will be a CD; that’s all. At some point, when users want to save their e-mail messages, copy music, or anything like that, the only storage they’ll have is what we give them. It’s worth hundreds of millions to the company, spread over a few years, and we’ll be the main supplier for it; and I hope the sole supplier (thanks TeamXbox</).
