SAN FRANCISCO — OCTOBER 13, 2006 — Today Ubisoft, one of the world’s largest video game publishers, announced that the Xbox Live Vision ® camera can be used in conjunction with Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Vegas for the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas is the fifth iteration of the multimillion-selling tactical shooter franchise and will be available on store shelves in November.


Once online, players of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Vegas will be able to push the customization by putting his or her own face on the character using Xbox Live Vision. In just two simple steps, a head-on photo and a profile photo taken with Xbox Live Vision, gamers can create a custom, virtual “head” for the character that looks exactly like the actual gamer. Once the custom head is completed, players can further customize their online character by choosing weapons, clothing, camouflage and body armor.
