Tecmo just sent out a media alert confirming that Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 is heading exclusively to the PlayStation 3 this fall.
i don't what to say. I love ninja gaiden sigma, but damn there are so many hot games comin out this year.
lmao, love your Joker Hope picture.
start saving your money for this fall. you know PS owners are going broke this fall season.
to all the people who cried " bu bu bu....Microsoft is the publisher...it owns the rights to NGII and it will never come to the PS3" Hahaha. I own all the ninja Gaidens-Black, Sigma, NGII, and will probably grab this as well if there is enough fresh content. NGII was a great game, but it felt a bit rushed. Collecting skulls for no rewards but just an achievement? I chalk it up to the falling out that Itakagi had with TECMO. Hopefully they add some more polish this time around. And take that worthless flame phoenix ninpo out.
I hope this game doesn't bomb like Sigma 1.
lol Tecmo really phucked over Itagaki and his Xbox fans. Oh well ...
Its no surprise NG II was plagued with development problems, the fact that Itagaki publicly attacked his company days before the games release is a prime example. If given the time perhaps Itagaki's original dream could be realized? I picked up NG II for $40 it was well worth it asides from its issues, good to see PS3 owners can also experience it.
This will probably be my game of the year to be honest. I can't wait to get it because I will have a reason to also get a Dual Shock 3. I think I may actually snap the controller in half this time. In sigma I got close on many occasions. TGSI
If you played NG Sigma then you know it was far far superior to NG or NG Black. NG Sigma 2 will be the superior version of NG 2 as well.
Sigma bombed????? NGΣ sold 400,000. That's very good for a game that had already been released 2 times.
"lol Tecmo really phucked over Itagaki and his Xbox fans. Oh well ... " Kigmal, if you're a 360 only owner, I can see the issue. Sucks, but its something many PS3 only GTA and Fallout fans have to deal with as well.
but it doesn't hurt to have Ninja Gaiden in the ps3 catalog.
this is the same guy that said Uncharted was a B game, without explaining. He is just sad since the 360 is not getting good games and has nothing to do but troll in N4G. Nice try but fails
I only played through NG2 twice so I'm torn on whether to purchase NGS2. If the graphics, frame rate and camera are improved I want to buy the definitive version. Also, I'm starting to wonder if PS3 will become the new home of Ninja Gaiden and its sequels. @ Morgan- Sigma is the best version of Ninja Gaiden 1 although it was missing something the Xbox versions had: Ninja Gaiden 1-3 from the NES. Outside of the HD graphics, explain how Sigma was "far far better?" I'm beginning to think you talk out your butt and use your toes to type.
Ninja Gaiden without Igatki or what ever his name is, I wonder if this will be a enhanced version of NG2 or completley new game?
"If the graphics, frame rate and camera are improved" The graphics SHOULD be improved as well as a solid frame rate. NG:S ran flawlessly in 60fps at 720p. Not so sure about the camera though. It's amazing how NGII had some frame rate dips at only 585p, as well as how Idiotgaki kept clamoring how he likes to work with "more powerful" hardware.
You know they made money off of NG:Sigma if they are willing to make a Sequel from scratch all over again. OR they could have used NGS as an excuse to get to know the ps3 better by remaking a game already done on the 360 and the original xbox. They had a finished product to look at and compare to just in case they made any mistakes. lol i got disagrees because i said there are too many good games coming out this year. So the disagrees are telling me that there aren't a lot of good games coming out this year HAH what a bunch of idiots
Although I prefer my 360 (chief reason is the controller), this is welcome news. I'm always up for more NG content no matter if it is on the PS3 or the Xbox 360. To those complaining about NG2 on the 360's framerate issues, as far as I know NG2 was developed on an aging game engine. I heard it was ported straight from the original Xbox. This coupled with Itagaki's departure, it is a miracle the game is still so much fun! NG2 for 360 is my game of the year for 2008!!!
one more can't hurt. :p
I have both PC and PS3. I always would say "I can play every game I want, because most XBox games are on PC, and then I got PS3 games too. The only thing I'm really missing is Ninja Gaiden 2." Now what am I missing? Gears 2? LOL.
personally I think NG2 was really underated in the reviews, I'm still playing it in between games 'cause its a bit hard and I like to take my time, ps3 only owners who haven't played it should definitely pick it up this fall, its a great game. JOY
I'll say this again,If sigma 2 runs and looks better than the rrodbox ver. then it would be safe to say Yosuke Hayashi>>>king flop himself;Tomonobu Itagaki.I mean the 360 is a cake walk to work with compared to the ps3 right?
Sarcasm, have you noticed how Itagaki has shifted his tune somewhat since getting the boot? People can whine all they want but this version will be the definitive version on the definitive hardware.
Sigma was released when the PS3 only had an install base of about 8 million and sold nearly a half million copies. Ninja Gaiden 2 was released when the 360 had an install base of 20 million and sold one million. If you simply take that into acount, I would say that Sigma sold well. If anything, Ninja Gaiden 2 failed to live up to the hype and should have sold at least two or three million...
it's confirm for US to this fall? or just Japan with an incoming release date for US?
yes its coming to the US this fall. the offcial US PS magazine has an exclusive interview with them on the next issue.
Yep, the fall release window is for all regions (Japan, North America, and Europe).
^ Thanks for the heads up pwnsauce. That's a great news ^^
I hope they try and improve the camera. I liked playing this game on my buddy's 360 so I'm glad it's getting ported over. I wonder if they'll add new levels too..
well from what we heard right now, its not a port. its supposively being built from the ground up for the PS3, just like Sigma. one of the biggest complaints of this game wasnt just only the frame rate issues, but the camera. Im pretty sure that they are on it. Heres hoping they add some sort of Home support, like unlockables, an arcade machine like the RE5 arcade machine in the home space, and of course a Tecmo/NG homespace itself. BTW, Tecmo is listed as one of the 3rd party devs that are supporting Home, so lets what they are going to do with it in the future.
Indeed Pwn... perhaps now is the time to put the old NG NES/SNES editions into a Home arcade area?
I shall purchase it, and nuzzle it next to my Sigma and DMC4. Then Bayonetta and God of War 3 can join them. It'll be one big kickass action game orgy.
and broke! i will have to decide what not to buy for me to get all these ridiculous great games (with an "s" at the end, as in more than one ) :)
"It'll be one big kickass action game orgy. " Orgy? First thing that comes to mind is the girl from Bayonetta, Rachel from NG:S, and the other big boobed blond girl from NG2. :)
the first thing that comes to mind is a train heading straight Beyonetta
Its Official i am buying a PS3 with Ninja Gaiden Sigma & Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2. Now its all about a price drop. Come on Sony i know you want to lower the price. Come on this xmas. $250 please? Do you want my money ? Do it. You can't? :(
PS3 wins again. Next one Mass Effect or Gears. Then there will be only Halo missing, but it's very old now.
dude how old are you?
for sure. Gears perhaps not. Halo?. don't care at all.
I don't know about ME. I know it's EA and they paid a sh**load to acquire Bioware. But Microsoft has some extra money since Capcom denied, in Japan, the RE5 timed exclusivity deal, ending any chance the 360 had at seeing a huge sales spike in 2009...
Hopefully they fix the problems that plague the xbox360 version.
they did a great job with first sigma and look top notch in 1080p, so I think this one will be better than the 360 version as well......bring it on
i plan to pick this up if it has enough extra content. i couldnt help but to buy ng2 on 360 on sale for 10 dollars at bestbuy this one week.
Never played the first one, maybe I should start
I bought NG 2 on 360 and loved it, sigma 2 with updated graphics and fixed bugs would be great
ive never been to big into ng, but i might try the sequel since ive tried the first one but only got half way.
friends x360 and i must say personally its not worth the time. The gameplay is its only saving grace. Sad really. NG2 and Too Human were the two top game i wanted from the x360 and both really suck in the end. NG2 look very much like sigma on PS3 only a little bit shinier and the story as well is hopeless. I don't know what happened. I was expecting alot more from team ninja after NG on xbox.
Honestly, at this point after beating NGS (in 2007) and NG2, I don't expect any relevant story. The gameplay is where it's at. I said it before but I'll say it again, if they manage to have a deeper story for the NG series on top of the visceral gameplay, then it would be an instant A+ game. It's like God of War, it's arguable that the gameplay might not even be the best compared to NG, but it's the story that keeps people pulled in. Where else will you get to jump on Greek gods and slice them up? So I might at least rent NG:S2 and hopefully see some improvements.
You must have gotten your ass handed to you by the ninjas lolz, it's ok, lots of people get served by the ninjas of Ninja Gaiden 2, fortunately I am not one of those people. :)
Improve it. Also...rewrite the storyline. Make it good!
All the xbox fans screamed never for the ps3...and when the reviews came in some ps3 owners screamed we dont want it any way....but it will be a good gae
360 Fans - It's the best action game EVER! God of War sucks! PS3 Fans - God of War is the best action game EVER! Ninja Gaiden sucks! Actual gamers - Ninja Gaiden 2 was good...but not fantastic. Devil May Cry is the best action game. :)
actual gamers would give props to all three franchises but quickly say that DMC4 was a disappointment.. :) NGS2 i'm looking forward to that one for sure.
Personal Opinion: God of War Story is the best. NG gameplay is the most fun and challenging. DMC has a nice mixture of gameplay and story, but the recent iteration DMC4 wasn't that great.
was AWESOME. Bought it, played it, and beat it. One of the best action games on the PS3 so you can bet your belt-buckle I'm gonna get this one.....
Most important if the PS3 version has the fixed camera. As for graphics, I don't think it would be as much improvement on Sigma 2 compared to Black and Sigma 1. Black was made for the last gen SD Xbox and Sigma 1 was made for HD PS3. NGII is already made for the current HD on X360.
Great news..Sony bring Yukuza 3 and White Knight over here now!!
That would be nice.
I want WKC and I am good. Well, Infamous is my next buy.
This is absolutely the year of PS3 awesomeness !
i'm a huge fan i have ng2 on x360 but i'll be sure to get this when it comes out. the only problem is that sigma was a bit too easy and not nearly as refined as ninja gaiden black. it seems team ninja lack direction without itigaki, but they have enough talent to make this a great game
Xplay voted Sigma (PS3) the number one game for the HARDcore gamer. It beat ghost n goblins.
I just hope they fix the probs from the 360 version.
ngs2, uncharted2, codmw2, gow3 maybe, i'll have to buy at least those 4 already. Wonder if anything else good is yet to be announced.
how about mafia 2? that look pretty good and is supposed to come out at the end of this year. although i wouldnt count on it.
I'm def. buying all the games you just listed although I think god of war 3 will be pushed back til March, 2010 but I'm also Positive Heavy Rain and Bioshock 2 will be heavy hitters ... I honestly think Heavy Rain is going do shock the hell out of people when it releases the only 2 games that I want more than Heavy Rain is God of war 3 and Uncharted 2 .. Sony's line up is incredible this year! I mean look Exclusive: Killzone 2, Uncharted 2, Heavy Rain, God of War 3(maybe), Infamous, Ratchet and Clank future 2(maybe), and now Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Third Party: Call of Dudy MW2, bioshock 2, Street Fighter 4, Fight Night rd. 4, UFC undisputed, Resident Evil 5, Fear 2, now if thats not a great year I don't know what is
i thought ninja gaiden was xbox exclusive? anyway more games for ps3 so aint complaining either way. man ps3 has a $hit load of exclusives this year. if sony make the right moves they can have an explosive year. anyway xbox owners dont worry you still have the soulja boy exclusive game. lol.
Think I will buy it :)
