Will Microsoft Offer Itagaki Exclusive Deal?

With the shocking news of Tomonobu Itagaki's resignation from Tecmo, just where will the highly revered developer produce his new games? There's been speculation for a while now of discontentment over at Tecmo, with Itagaki be-littleing some of his co-workers and pubicly commenting on his dislike of Ninja Gaiden Sigma (the PS3's remake of the Xbox original). (Ninja Gaiden 2 Sigma, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Why is xboxkings better than SDF?

If you can approve this, you can also approve this

1.This site is run by the mart.
2. Most of their articles have no merit and are just stupid. already confirmed to have 1080p support at the back of box)

By the way peejee, i saw your comment about MGS4 coming to the 360. Lol, i laugh anytime i see a 360 fanboy hate on MGS4 yet secretly wants it on the 360. I know offcourse you can't play it for fear of rape from the mart

On topic though, Maybe Msoft will maybe they won't I don't think he will struggle too hard to find a new job though.

microsoft need more inhouse game companies so probably there a match made in heaven somewhere,and microsoft have the funds to aid him so it would be good for them both i think and 360 owners.

at sonarus i totally agree xboxkings can be the 360s version of SDF if where all honest at times,and sometimes their informative to 360 owners its chalk and cheese with them but love them or hate them XBOXKINGS ARE HERE TO STAY

@ Sonarus

WTF has got to do with "Will Microsoft Offer Itagaki Exclusive Deal?"

On topic

If MS have any sense a deal should already have been worked out.
mikeslemonade  +   2810d ago
With Itagaki gone Tecmo may consider a NG2 for the PS3. Itagaki was a large influence on why there was no PS3 version of NG2.
Mr_President_  +   2810d ago
M$ should pick him up
and give him a studio. M$ needs more 1st party studios
PirateThom  +   2810d ago
Because SDF isn't a real site, it's run by 360 and Wii fanboys parodying Sony fanboys, which is really funny because some people think it's serious.
PirateThom  +   2809d ago
I should also point out, XBoxkings isn't a real site either.

Any site that is system focused and talks about other consoles only in a negative aspect is just a flame site and not news. People really need to stop posting news from there, especially the people who are obviously writing the articles. If people find your news interesting enough, they'll find it and add it, rather than you having to add it yourself as you always seem to have to do.

sonarus you'd be voted MOST OFF TOPIC on this site
I swear your in love and secretly think about Mart every second of the day.

Let it go buddy...People like that, makes others famous.

On the Topic: I have liked all the franchises this guy has worked on and I wouldn't doubt MS could give him a deal.

After all, this is about Video Games. I don't care about a developers workplace and why he/she did not get well with some others. I do not work there and don't know what goes on. I don't give a sh^t. that's their problem. I'm all about the end product.

I just care about a Dev making a great fn game and me enjoying it.

Too much Soap Opera on this site, with many "paparazzi" type Fanboys trying to make a name for themselves.

This guy can get a job anywhere he wishes to, besides Tecmo of course. Why would he limit his options? Capcom, Konami, Square enix are just some of the places this guy would easily fit into. I don't like the guy personally, I often feel he's a pompous ass but in a way he's pretty cool too but at the end of the day the guy is amazingly talented and he will have no trouble getting a job again. Be it with Microsoft or wherever. If the money was right I bet he'd even work for Sony.

Ok, maybe not Sony but anyone else is a go

If microsoft offered him his own studio, that's better than anything anyone else would be likely to give him. He could get a project lead anywhere, but running a studio gives you ultimate control in every regard.

I really hope he and Microsoft can come to a cool deal. Not only because it will bring the 360 a lot of cool exclusives, but also because, as he said before, he loves developing for the 360. So it's nog only the fact that the games will become exclusive, more that the quality is garanteed good.

cos he badmouthed his collegues in front of the whole world.

You can be good but if thats the way you treat your co workers, you know you wont last long in the organization.

Especially seeing how his "inferior" co worker managed to do 1080P Sigma while Itagaki could only do 585P rofl.

And people talk like as if he could go to MS. Why. Its not like MS is itching for a guy like him. Rofl people talk like as if MS is backing this guy up or something. He isnt some sort of idol. MS doesnt want a guy like him.

Just depressing that there are many just limited to use things with no spark of creativity or imagination just hatred-filled adolescents.
Silogon  +   2810d ago
They might not want a guy like him (disposition wise) but talent wise, he's one of the best in the business and the fact is the guy has always made some of the best looking games for the console he makes them on. They're always showcase pieces.

Like him or not he's very talented and well known in the industry. Microsoft would be lucky to snag someone like this. It might make their ill fated Rare acquisition not seem so bad, since this guy can actually preform still.
Veryangryxbot  +   2810d ago
lol you talk like as if its any company's fking glory to have a guy like him.
When it is in fact not.

lol Rare? wtf.
You realize Rares quarters are in England right? Can Itagaki even speak English. Wtf are you on about. He is a Japanese developer living in Japan. Even if English is not a problem, he isnt going to move to the States or England!

SE, Konami, Capcom? Lmao wtf. You realize this guy is the same guy who bashes developers working for these companies?

And the best? He is NOT one of the best. You dont have a clue what you are talking about.

This guy is not highly respected bro. He is a joke in the development world in Japan. A joke. The other developments treat him like an outcast. A joke. You talk like as if he is some sort of god...maybe because he works for the 360 lol.

whatever makes you sleep better at night yo. Itagaki is done for.

What are you on about? I didn't make the claim he should go to Rare. In fact, I made the claim that buying Rare was a mistake for Microsoft cause they clearly can't preform anymore and this guy can. Meaning, at least Microsoft would have someone worthy in their stable.

As for the other devs, I'm sure they'd all be more than happy to have this guy's talents at their disposal. It's a business. It's all about profit and expanding.

The title of the article itself is a flippin question.

Cool ur jets guys. If they said that microsoft did, in fact, offer him a deal, then you can be pissed. They are more than free to speculate.

I'm sure if we removed all the articles that were just opinions, a lot more would be removed from the other side of the fence (every 360 is dead article wouldn't be there. Every article saying the 360 doesn't have any games would be gone.)

Exclusive rights
That's the whole question, indeed. I hope he has the rights, but as he already stated: "...will be the last NINJA GAIDEN I will create..." So that implies that he doesn't have the rights (or the tools, as in a studio?) to do so.

Well Ninja Gaiden 2 only had the
Rights on the other console when he was still part of tecmo but since hes quits now it can be multiplatform and plus I haven't seen him made any other games besides alot of Dead or Alive games and Dead or Alive volley ball and Rumble Roses and Ninja Gaiden games there hasn't been any other game that this guy has made why would anybody want to hire a guy that keep making the same game only giving it different names

and plus I don't even think Microsoft wants a guy like him considering thats what we call a control freak

and again I don't think he was meant for gaming anyway!

oh please of course you don't agree with me PeeJee at Xboxkings you have XBox 360 written all over your face the guy probably will quit the gaming world and just do something else and besides I don't think no corporation will hire him the way hes doing

Big in Japan
Although he is a hero over there (and here), it's true what somebody said about him not speaking any English. I don't know how big the organisation in Japan is, and I don't know if MS has any studio's in Japan, but otherwise it can be hard to employ the dude. I don't think he really fits in an American businessmodel, don't think he even wants to move to Europe or the US.

Capcom, SEGA, Konami, you name it, indeed. All potential employers for this dude. But at the same time, he just might be able te become the link between the Japanese and the whole xbox series.

Do you think you can recognize him without the sunglasses btw?

I think MS will offer him his own studio where he will get full control over his next IP. He said himself that he won't be working on DOA or Ninja Gaiden anymore. He also said that he only works on the most powerful hardware, which in his opinion is the 360.

Are you guys aware that microsoft game studio is publishing NG2? Chances of this game seeing other platforms a very thin... mmm.. who knows... it would be interesting to see microsoft logo on a PS3 game... do your research... and name one game published by Microsoft, Nintendo or Sony on another platform... hell... people are still waiting for Golden Eye released on N64.. and just because it was published by nintendo it keep getting killed... though Rare made it and Nintendo does not own 007 IP... learn from that.

The only reason why he now is on Sony lovers $h!t list is because he favors the xbox 360... but him and his team are known for making quality games... period... great lost for Tecmo... and there is a possibility that Ninja Gaiden would be ruin... who's going to pick the IP EA developers?

You're right, they're publishing NG2 but Tecmo could pull some crazy clause out of their ass to make NGS2. It would essentially be NG2 with some things changed and/or added, enough to keep them from court but still time and cost effective. That said, I don't think it will happen but I wouldn't be surprised if it did.

M$ has publishing duties ONLY. They do not have the IP rights. only Tecmos does. Tecmos can add more features, slap a SIGMA title on it and can find a new publisher.

Baka-akaB  +   2809d ago
We are talking about business here ...
So Tecmo ran into heated discussion and conflicts with his itagaki about ports , but would lock itself into giving the whole ng2 ip to microsoft for all eternity ? Especially after the success of Sigma in critics ?

MS published it , and would probably get at least a year or two of exclusivity ... but i doubt they would give away the rights . especially with loopholes such as Sigma is not the same game as original gaiden

LOL.... you people obvious have no idea why companies spend money and resources publishing games... why would companies go through the burner of doing such thing if they didn't have a right...

you guys can at least explain why Golden eye is not yet on xbox live since it was made by Rare....

The fact is that the previous NG was published by Tecmo.. this time this one is published by Microsoft... why? none of us know what microsoft publishing the game means... but one can assume that it means what it means for all other games when a company publish it...

people are using non-microsoft published games like bioshock to show that games can come to the PS3... can you name microsoft published games on the PS3... or Nintendo? or even Sony?

Isn't Age of Empires and Viva Pinata on the DS? And MGS published Vampire Rain and unfortunately that's coming to the PS3. I'm sure no one cares about that game, but Artoon pulled what I said Tecmo could pull. So it's still true, MS has the publishing rights to Ninja Gaiden 2. But that doesn't necessarily stop Tecmo from making a Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 and adding or changing enough content to keep them out of court.

I'd hire him but...
If I was going to hire that idiot I'd have to extract one of the most extreme "Keep Your Mouth Shut" agreements out of him that any company has ever conceived.

Whether or not he makes good games or exactly how much he has to do with the games he's associated with is up for debate but what is clear is that this is a man who runs his mouth too much and hurts not only his image but the image of anyone he's associated with.

I really think MS would be dumb not to pay Itagaki money to work for them. I think if MS could help fund money for Itagaki's game studio would be great news for MS and the 360. Plus as great of games as the 360 has right now you can always use more and having more exclusive games is always better for your system.
Apocalypse Shadow  +   2809d ago
the only company that would hire him is microsoft.
he wants to sit back and have a team and talk about how great he is.

FACT.......before it happens......

"HE WILL NOW TALK BADLY ABOUT TECMO."as he has done to other devs,games and co workers.

it will happen.cause already happened.effect will come soon enough.

TECMO will do fine without him.the RYGAR ps2 team made and excellent action game with excellent,team ninja with the guy that made sigma will do fine.

title video

gameplay video

see?an excellent action game without team ninja.

just like Yu Suzuki leaving sega and not making VF5.AM2 did fine without him.tell me:"did they not make a VF as good as any he helped create?he taught them enough that they can get the work done without him.i miss YU.but as a great dev at sega,his knowledge will live on at AM2.

DOA will do fine.and ninja gaiden will do fine if they are continued to be made by TECMO.
