Not to be unexpected
I think a lot of people saw this coming from a fair way away.

OMG!yes!don't forget guys that on the ps3 the game will run very very fine.smooth framerate better colors better rendering and without camera gliches like the previous NG Sigma on ps3. only on the xbox360 was possible a worse version.

Now this is what I like to see, maybe Capcom should take a leaf out of their book RE 5 vs mode anyone?
Firstkn1ghT  +   2523d ago
Wow, only about a year and half later. Too funny.
Fozzy25  +   2523d ago
Looks like damage control has started early. By the time the game comes out it will be slightly more than a year, with completely improved visuals, gameplay and added content. Sounds like a good trade off, especially when PS3 owners have got Killzone 2 and Infamous to hold them off until then. This just shows though, third party exclusives are nearly impossible to hold on to, unless they own the IP.

Like Bioshock and Lost planet and Oblivion? Every PS3 owner knows that what ever has been on the 360 and comes out a year later on the PS3 get terrible sales. There is no longer any HYPE behind the game and the nature of consumers is always buying the newest gizmo's and gadgets that are available...This game will be received with luke warm sales and will probably get the same reviews as NG2.

Why do Xbox 360 fanboys care about sales?
Publishers know this, they simply screwed Microsoft and its fanboys, and now PS3 fans get this game. The better version of the game, actually. So while you played a game that was gonna be on other platform, PS3 owners were playing games that were definitely not going to appear on your platform.

Stop crying
Man_of_the_year  +   2521d ago
Wow you guys just don't get it do ya.

Sales are very important to a developler and the end user (us being the gamers). To create a game a dev has to have a certain amount of resources available to them to create a game. A dev then plans on selling "X" amount of games to hit the break even point and receive hopfully some gains.

If a game doesn't sell well on a console, then they are at a loss and if they are a smaller dev compnay will either go bankrupt and close the doors of their company or are bought up by a larger company at a low price.

Sales of a game = money in Devs pockets = more games they will develope for that console = Larger library of games for that console = greater console sales = potentially larger install base...rinse and repeat.

This is why sales are VERY important if you want a dev to continue to make games you like for the console of your choice.

This news has made my day, absolutely adored NG:S on the PS3, was one of the first titles I got on the system and due to PS3's rather slow start the game kept me entertained for ages. Through all difficulty levels (now that I'm a bit of a trophy whore, I just wish it had trophies) NG2 up till now has been one of the games that made me think about buying a 360. Hell, late last year when I had a little extra cash I nearly did but held off in the end.

I can't wait for this, keep the gameplay smooth and as close to NG:S and I'll be a very happy man.

As I said in my post above, I'd prefer for a different playable character to Ayane as I'm really not a fan of DoA (yes I know Ryu is in DoA) but I'd much rather see Rachael playable again, contrary to a lot of people, I thought she was a great character in Sigma.
Skyreno  +   2523d ago
SWEET!!!!!!!!!!! Plus i hope they add something for playstation "HOME"
swinesucker  +   2523d ago
now that the rockstar is gone they can make a game worth playing LOL

Sigma was equal if not better than 2 from all these reviews

I still haven't gotten around to it

soon I suppose

maybe they could put in trophies with sigma while they develop the sequel

doubt it but it's just another reason to buy it

""New giant boss battles not in the 360 version""
Lol but didn't Itagaki say that the 360 is the most powerful console?

Good stuff ... Day One buy. I was going to buy the 360 version. It was fun but you knew it wasn't native 720p. It was Graphically underwhelming. I hope Team Ninja gives this game some polish ... please!
Magic_The_Celt  +   2523d ago

Oh man Xbots got nothing these days, all they do is fail

especialy after the flop of halo wars, didnt sell as much as microsoft hoped, didnt come near to the review score microsoft hoped

Just like with most "exclusives" on the 360

happened to lost planet, happened to bioshock

the circumstances made it impossible to come to the PS3 at the time but it came to the Playstation eventualy

and oh look, just like with the amazing Bioshock, with IMPROVED GAMEPLAY AND GRAPHICS


All other exclusives are either too few or on PC anyway
n to the b  +   2522d ago
yup, waiting a year+ for 360 leftovers is WHERE IT'S AT!
be_wrong  +   2523d ago
wow and they said it was exclusive :P geez the only thing that's really left for the so called exclusive in 360 are halo and errr halo :P (gears, mass effect, fable will be coming out on pc kiddies :D)
cyrus228  +   2523d ago
isnt mass effect coming to ps3 also like bioshock did???

i think gears and halo are 360's only exclusives, and fable, i guess u can call them MS exclusives since they come out on PC also but u dont need a 360 to play them heh
paracardium  +   2523d ago
I'm not surprised
There is a trend here if anyone else has noticed.The 360 may get it first but the ps3 always get the better version even if we have to be a little patient.C$C.Eternal Sonata,Bioshock with the challenge rooms, just keeps getting better and better.
LTC  +   2523d ago
I wouldnt bother with this
The 360 version only recieved 81 on Meta so it flopped basically like most other 360 games.
dustgavin  +   2523d ago
That is only 1 point lower than Halo Wars. Sounds like this is worth a rental.
DNAgent  +   2523d ago
I was planning on renting Ninja Gaiden 2 for the 360 soon but now that the PS3 is getting it then I will just wait for the PS3 version. I'm sure there will be extras as well as better graphics (just like they did for the first game).
gnothe1  +   2523d ago
dont get to happy yet boys, MS has the publishing rights to this game in the states, so it may never see the day in the U.S,
d0nT wOrrY  +   2523d ago
it's a new game
it's sigma, with upgrades:-

- It will be an upgraded version of Ninja Gaiden 2 (not a direct port)
- Set to release in autumn 2009
- Producer and director: Yosuke Hayashi (From Sigma)
- Development: Team Ninja

New features in the PS3 version:
- New weapon - spiked hammer "Genma"
- New giant boss battles not in the 360 version
- New playable character - female ninja Ayane

not a stupid port, if what you said is true. then "it's may NEVER see the day" in any region, (correct me if im wrong.
Sevir04  +   2522d ago
SORRY Gnothe!!! but MS simply published the IP owned by tecmo
It the contract Saiod Ninja Gaiden 2 is exclusive to Xbox360 then a simple Name change or addition could easily get around that barrier. and it seems to have hear, as NG:Sigma 2 is set for release on PS3 autumn 2009? NG:sigma 2 is Not Ninja Gaiden 2.. So get over it. ^^ but dont worry. I've got you a few boxes of cleanex right here, Take as many as you need... :)
SpartanGR  +   2523d ago
IMHO Getting a game like NG2 after a year of its original release it's not something to brag about. I feel like someone is feeding me with the leftovers.BTW I'll be playing God of War III and Uncharted 2 at that time.
OOG  +   2523d ago
man you fanboys on this site make me sick..... the same people who talk bad about Ninja Gaiden games when they are on the 360.... now praise and celebrate the game....

heres a lil tip for yourselves..... GFY

And here´s an article from kotaku
"This fall, Ninja Gaiden Σ 2 is coming to Sony's PLAYSTATION 3. The game is a PS3 remake of the "Only on Xbox 360" title Ninja Gaiden II. The game will have PSN support as well as new content.
Like the original title, Ninja Gaiden Σ 2 is being developed by Tecmo's Team Ninja. However, Ninja Gaiden II was designed by former Team Ninja lead ninja Tomonobu Itagaki, who has since left the company. Itagaki was known for his preference for developing titles for Microsoft's game consoles. That, and drinking booze.
Yosuke Hayashi, director of the first Ninja Gaiden Σ, will once again take the reins for this Sigma remake sequel. As with Ninja Gaiden Σ, NG Σ 2 is a remake of an Itagaki designed game.
When asked about the first NG Σ title, Itagaki did not seem impressed in the least, saying, "All you need to do is play Ninja Gaiden II and then try and play Sigma afterwards and you'll see why. Despite the fact that it's on a 'next-generation' console there's no evolution whatsoever. That was made not by me, but one of my sub-ordinates who basically tried to copy the success of Ninja Gaiden."
In Ninja Gaiden Σ, it was possible to play as voluptuous character Rachel for some of the missions. In Ninja Gaiden Σ it will be possible to play Dead or Alive's Ninjutsu expert Ayane as well as Ninja Gaiden's Ryu Hayabusa — which makes sense as Hayabusa and Ayane are friends."

cyrus228  +   2523d ago
idiots lol
duh ninja gaiden sigma 2 is ninja gaiden 2. they just said boss not available in 360 version which means its NG2 obviously. besides if u look at the scan sonya is in it

ok im glad ps3 owners get this but i feel decieved, i got my 360 for this game since i was convinced MS publishing it wud mean it wud never come to p3. and im willing to just pass this game off but then i saw u can play as in shock lol i cant wait now. ayane has always been my fav in DOA series so playing with her shud be awesome, i will wait for the game to get cheap tho lol.

and is it me or 360 keeps losing its exclusives? i say more than ps3 lol. least they have exclusive DLC and bunch of

Same here man. I'm pretty pissed off as I was going to buy a PS3 to play Sigma until I heard that NG2 will be the last NG game and it will only be on 360.

Either way, I hope this means we see NG3 in the future.
Bazookajoe_83  +   2523d ago
Lets hope they fix some issues ninja gaiden 2 had
camera angles and bugfixes would be greatly appreciated.
FF7numbaone  +   2523d ago
uh huh.. bout time my console starts getting some of the other consoles exclusives.
titntin  +   2523d ago
I think some of vitriolic posts on here are missing the point.

NG2 was flawed gem. Anyone who plays fighters of this nature must agree, it has the best combat system of any such game, a trully deep and rewarding combat mechanic. Valid critisms were levelled at the camera, the story and the graphics engine, but the underlying game mechanics were to notch.

The thought of having such refined combat mechanic, with a new engine and possibly some of the annoyances removed, is surely exciting for any game fan of this genre? I played it on my 360, but that doesn't mean I'm not excited by the possibility of a better remix on my PS3.
Maybe all the flaws will be removed and the title can truly lay claim to being the best of its breed.
