OK, here it is. Please follow the rules and format as I indicated with Star Wars Republic Commando. The idea is to allow the members to ask Ubi Soft questions pertaining to their upcoming game RS: Lockdown.
Make sure word your questions so they can't be answered with just a yes or now, no sarcastic comments, and your grammar counts towards submission.
Each member can submit up to two questions. I'll pick from what I have and submi those questions. Just because you put two in won't mean I'll take both, but I migh depending on the questions I get.

Do not let the opportunity pass up to ask a direct question to a game developer. You want your voice heard, here's the chance. Like in the other games I do like this, I'll include your name age and location if you follow the format I provided.

Please note that once this is done, like always, it takes awhile for the interview to get responded too. Generally companies will wait until before the game is released before responding and sending it back. However they only like to receive the interviews around a certain timeframe.
Here's your chance to participate and do my job for a change.

Are there any plans to package the original Rainbow Six 3 and the expansion discs together at a special packaged price, like a box set packaged with a bonus disc or a t-shirt, for those who want to get into the series but would rather buy all the games at once rather than buying 3 seperate games?

1) Have you added any more options in terms of server hosting (i.e. assigning adminstrators, banning any weapon of your choosing, vote kick players on/off, etc.)?

2) There were many issues in terms of lean-glitching and in terms of the netcode. Have both been improved? If so, is the netcode gonna make a game as lag free as 90% of my Halo 2 games?

My favorite game type in the previous Rainbow Xbox titles was Cooperative play. Playing with 3 buds on live and going through missions was always a blast. Will this return, and if so, will you make any noticable improvements to satisfy the co-op fans like myself?

Also, props to Flood, Totten, and triple l usion for the killer questions

If Co-op ain't there; screw the game. :p

Lonnie, agre 16 from Ohio asks:
How much military/swat research has gone into Rainbow Six 4, if any?

Will Rainbow Six 4's story incorperate anything that is currently going on in Real-World affairs?

From the screenshots, all the huds look somewhat obstructing, will there be an option to turn the goggle effect and information on and off?

In the trailer I saw I noticed that when the gun was being aimed with iron sights, the reticule/crosshair was still there, defeating the purpose of iron sights. Will this be changed before the release ? Will there be an option to turn the reticule completely off
to utilize the iron sight feature ?

How does the weapon buying sytem work?

Will guns be customizeable ie. scopes, supressors,lights, red dots etc. ...?

Can we expect download content of previous maps and new ones ?

I wanted to let you guys know that Ubi Soft has just amazed me by sending me back the Lock Down interview answered.
Look for it on the main page in a few days. I just don't understand why they blew off Flood's question. They just left it blank.
