Are Tecmo and Team Ninja Alienating PS360 Gamers with Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge?

DualShockers Writes:"Longtime Ninja Gaiden series fans did not keep quiet about their disappointment with Ninja Gaiden 3. The overwhelmingly negative response to the game from fans and critics alike has amounted to a figurative spanking, which has been delivered firmly to the developer’s backside.

However, instead of devising some way to alleviate the disappointment of the thousands of players who invested in the Xbox 360 and or PS3 versions of the game, the devs have decided to reserve many vital additions and adjustments for the Wii U exclusive version of the game, known as Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge."

It still looks awful in my personal opinion. I do miss the days of Ninja Gaiden Zigma.

I said it for Bayonetta 2 and I'll say it again. If a game on Wii U looks good, maybe you should just consider buying a Wii U.

mttrackmaster382210d ago

This isn't the same. It isn't a sequel, it's a non-shitty version of a game many ps3/360 gamers shelled out $60 for. Basically, they were beta-testers.

linkratos2210d ago

I agree that it's different than Bayo2, but is it really the same game? I mean if the gameplay and other stuff is so different, can it really be called the same game? Sometimes games just turn out shitty.

If it is possible to patch, they should do that. However, everything I've heard says game is drastically changed, can something like this even be patched?

mysterious_warrior2210d ago

Agreed 110%. Although I'm glad I did buy it. But thats whats wrong with developers today

ronin4life2210d ago (Edited 2210d ago )

Supposedly, the dev team was shocked at the negative reaction, so the wiiu version received an overhaul((this may have also influenced doa 5, which before hand was being touted by the producer to be going in a more "realistic" direction with the female cast)

Also keep in mind; Nintendo is publishing and aiding in development. Many of the changes and fixes are likely Nintendo advised and or funded, such as free cod.

camel_toad2210d ago

Yep it was AWFUL. Might give the wii u version a chance through gamefly but no way am I giving Tecmo my money after the "beta test".

lilbroRx2210d ago

Actually, this is the same as Nintendo is publishing both games.

That more or less makes the games, case "version" in this case, a 2nd party Nintendo titles. They didn't just up out of nowhere say "HEY LETS RELEASE NINJA GAIDEN ONLY FOR NINTENDO!!!!" Nintendo is helping them foot the bill for development just like Bayonetta 2. That is why its not on the PS3 and 360.

Its funny that for years Nintendo customers got the short end of the stick but no major outlets ever complained in Nintendo's favor. Now, "1" single games becomes " Tecmo Alientating PS360" gamers. 1 game.

This is terrible journalism at its finest.

Thanks to Fatal Frame, Nintendo and tecmo have a good relationship. Now its being spun into a bad thing by bitter fanboys.

DeadlyFire2209d ago

PS3/X360 gamers will get a patch no doubt in 2013 or so with DLC to reflect the WiiU content as well. Just wait for it. Greed will hit their mind soon and they will realize those platforms.

I laughed when I saw your disagrees. Fanboyism is truly disgusting this generation. That said, you're right. Instead of thinking, "Maybe I should buy the better console," like a normal human being, people get angry about feeling shunned.

Vandamme212210d ago

I hope they make a sigma version

herbs2210d ago

I would not be suprised if Team Ninja becomes a Nintendo exclusive developer after this whole debacle, this improved version will never come to the other consoles because it is published by Nintendo. People should always read reviews or play the demo before they blindly spend there hard earned cash though, if you bought this game and where disappointed its kind of your own fault. I am personally happy this is coming back onto a Nintendo platform because it originally began on the Nes. It's funny because the original Nes Ninja Gaiden 3 didn't live up to its predecessors either, hopefully this version makes up for that lol.

d0nni32210d ago

I suppose it isn't much different to the Sigma versions the ps3 got i wouldn't call it alienating as much as leaving the ps3/360 versions in an awful state, i think those versions are best left alone and take the lessons they've learnt and apply themselves to the next iteration

FlameHawk2210d ago (Edited 2210d ago )

That is so f***ed up. They leave PS360 owners with the broken version. I hate when developers/publishers do this. They are never seeing my money again.

HellzAssassin2210d ago

Agreed, it's pathetic. And us (Ps3/360) owners were the ones that were complaining about how pitiful the game was in comparison to the other NG's in regards to content and sheer quality. It aggravates the living hell out of me because NG and DMC are my two top favourite videogame franchises and both are unfortunately going downhill. I truly hope TN takes all the complaints into consideration and creates a "Sigma" version for the 360/PS3... PLEASE?? ^_^

mysterious_warrior2210d ago

I want to know what sane person are disagreeing with FlameHawk and HellzAssassin.
