Here is an HD video of the opening level of Ninja Gaiden Sigma. (SD embedded)
This really isn't meant as a PS3 flame, which is how it will be interpreted unfortunately, but to me it looks like a slightly more polished black (in this video). I can see all the new stuff they are doing, but it really is a testament to the original game as to how amazing the graphics were. This title, even without the updates, could stand toe-to-toe with a lot of the stuff I've seen this generation.
In summary, the PS3 is very powerful, I'm NOT saying it isn't. I am not making a comparison to the 360. I'm saying that _to me_ in _this video_ it looks a lot like black, which was an _amazing_ looking game.
Let's see if that disclaimer does anything to stop me from being flamed.
lol...I'm guessing you havent watched the side by side comparison. Watch it in HD as well dude...
This is far superior to the xbox version. No jaggies. 10 times as many pollygons. 1080p 60fps. Real-time self shadowing (hasn't been done before, not even in Gears of War). This game would look just as good as on the 360...and well when it gets ported over. So look again.
(your disclaimer was noted, but just wanted to prove you wron...that your memories of the original game are slightly rose-tinted)
it does look alot better than the xbox version, but i honestly think it should look better. it looks the same but with a little polish, and more colors.
ok i wont convince you. But watch it in HD. I'm only defending the game itself, not the platform it's on.
But there are some things in this game that have never been done before in any next-gen game. Honestly everyone at IGN and gamespot have been so impressed with it, saying it's one of the best looking games they've seen. So I guess seeing it in SD doesn't show it off.
id say that if you havent played the original ..enjoy, if you have played it.....uhmm..enjoy!..lol
Are actually looking forward to this, because alot of PS3 owners were PS2 owners and they have never had the chance to play it.
But from that video...does it suffer from a possible camera problem??
It's the same type camera angle they used in the original game. I am actually playing through the game again right now and it's really not that big a deal but there have been one or two times when it has frustrated me.
As for the video it looks amazing, it almost makes me want to buy a PS3 but alas I am a broke college student at the moment lol
...get me hyped-up for Ninja Gaiden II on the 360. I'm expecting the graphics to blow the ones in this video completely away (Think Gears of War)
Looks ok but not what I was expecting, I was thinking something more along the lines of the giant leap the resident evil remake did on gc.
This still looks ok though and it's probably work in progress. My only concern was the framerate but that's probably just the camera they used to record it.
is that the PS3 is 3 times stronger than the xbox360 an the graphics you see there can only be done with the power of cell.NG 2 will not look at good as sigma. an trying to compare an xbox 1 game to a PS3 game is crazy!! if the PS3 is 3 time stronger than the 360 you can only imaging how much more powerful it is than the xbox1.xbots can only dream.
but on a much serious note, of course this game looks better than the xbox1 game but it doesn't WOW for a PS3 game.
maybe I have low standards. But it wows the sh*t out of me...and watching 1up episodes and gamespot it wowed the sh*t out of them.
I refrain from defending this game and the devs any longer. But this game has pulled out things that have not been done on any next-gen game so far. Real time self-shadowing. No jaggies. and 60fps 1080p.
I must have very low standards...
Maybe you'll think it's great when it appears on the 360 (as it most definately will)
from where did you get this "3 times stronger than the 360" information? cause the last i heard the ps3 is 2 teraflops and the 360 1 teraflop making the ps3 at most twice as "strong" not 3 times. If you want proof that NG2 will look better than this on the 360 just look at oblivion and dont go by the obviously fixed comparisons out there where they adjust the brightness so that it looks darker on the 360. oblivion runs better on the ps3 but it still looks better on the 360. Oh yeah and if you want more proof just wait for virtua fighter to come out ,i bet it will look better than the ps3 version.
Anyhow, I'll say again I guess.
I've already played this 3 years ago.
This is exactly the same thing as the Xbox version except with more vegetation. The gameplay, physics, movement, level design, everything is identical. The only difference I see is Ryu can do a back handspring and he has two swords now. Everything else is identical. Well the black birds are new too. Whoopdy-do. But yeah, they just slapped High Definition on it and added more vegetation.
The point is, I guarantee if you get this game for your PS3 and I came over to your house to play it (having never played the PS3 version), I could pick it up and instantly kick ass and know where everything is located and what to do. You know why? I’ve already played it.
Come on Team Ninja. How long can drag this game out (1st one, Black, Sigma, it's all the same)? It's old now. Bring on Ninja Gaiden 2!
yup its exactly the same, except for the 3 new levels, and playing the chick in the tight outfit, and the 60fps, and the 1080p, but other than that, its exactly the same.
think its great if it come to the 360 because for 1, I already had NG on the xbox 1. it was a great game, looked beautiful for its time but it was just entirely too hard!! so because of that I couldn't enjoy the game.but to say that its doing something that's never been done 60 fps at 1080p. well it was Sony not MS that was claiming that all there games would run at that level. I don't think your standards are low, your standards are fanboish!! your just like the rest because since this game isn't on the 360 you wanna act like you have something to brag about!!before you guys knew that AC,fatal inertia,DMC4 were coming to the 360 they were all awsome.now you don't care about them games. all you care about is games that's only on the PS3, so to me that's makes you a fan boy. I like all games regardless of the system. I wanna play RFOM but just not enough to buy a PS3 at its current price!!
answer me this !! did the PS3 live up to the HYPE, did it live up to everything that was promised, an do you honestly believe that the PS3 is leaps an bounds better than the 360!!
as far as this NG sigma goes, I don't think it looks better than HS or RFOM so to keep trying to hype this game up you my friend need to stop!!
No! I'm a fanboy about games dude. If this was on the 360, as I know it well be trust me...it's on its way , probably bundled in with Ninja Gaiden 2...I would still be just as impressed. You know I think I'll go by the opinions of the people who have actually played this version, and not someone who has just seen an SD video of it.
You have the wrong guy here...because I am still super excited about Assassins Creed. DMC was never really my thing, more excited about this. This will look good no matter waht platform it's on...and watching the guys at IGN and 1up get so excited about how good it looks was great and I trust them over you any day.
The rest of the sh*t you type is not for me to answer. I don't have a ps3 yet.
To bluprint: There are some games that have doen 60fps 1080p...and that's Ridge Racer 7 and Virtua Tennis 3.
But there has been no action game that has done it. Also there has been no game that has done real-time self-shadowing. From what I can see Temco have really got down and dirty with the ps3. I will continue to hype it up, as screenshots and HD footage looks incredible. If it was on the 360 then I would feel the same. The only person that is talking it down due to fanboyism is you g.
I'll reserve the judgement for people who have actually seen it and played it running on a 1080p HDTV at 60fps. Has it been done before? I can't think of a game that has done that this gen. But you shouldn't put down this game because of the hype Sony was getting last year, you should appreciate the developers for completely revamping this game and basically creating a new experience for PS3 owners who more than likely didn't play the XBOX version.
And it will be successful will lead to the annoucement of Ninja Gaiden 2 going multi. Trust me people. Its coming. Team Ninja are not stupid. They want to make money not to mention be able to tweak the hell out of Ninja Gaiden 2 with the PS3 like they are doing with Sigma. Appearently from what I have seen and heard their devs are in love with the PS3 architecture. All thats left now is the annoucement and added bonus would be
PS3 version to run @1080P, Constant 60FPS, Real time self shadowing and ability to partial install on HDD to eliminate load times. Yupp that about sounds like the PS3 version.
multiplat it wouldnt bother me 1 bit!! im not one of those guys thats going to start an online petition if it did.but deepbrown I've been on this sit long enough to see that you try an act neutral but in actuality your a sony fanboy!! the bad part about it is you don't even have a PS3 as you said!!im a Ms supporter an I have an xbox360.seems like you try an tell people how it feels to be rich but but aint got any money yourself!!
well... did you ever play NG on the original xbox!! I did plus I had it hooked up on a HD-TV through component running at 720p. an all i'm saying is this games looks good on the PS3 but not to the degree that you guys are trying to make it out!! if you notice everybody that has played the original game says the same thing( it looks good but nothing mind blowing for a PS3 game)but you sony boys are acting like its the single best looking game period!! to me (MHO) its nothing more than a polished up xbox1 game!! a little more color an little more detail an that's about it. not saying that's a bad thing at all because the game was awesome to begin with!! do you think that there's a bigger jump between resident evil to resident 0 remake on the gamecube, or NG 1 from xbxo1 an NG sigma on PS3!!
Dude. I have a preference but I wont bad mouth. I can't get excited about games I'm never going to be able to get. I get excited about games and that's it. The only reason you're down talking it is because it's only announced for the ps3.
The guys at 1up and IGN have played the original and they say exactly the opposite to you...and the reason is, is because they don't feel hurt and aren't fanboys. So really I'll say it again I'll trust them. Rather than all this dejected "woop-dee-doo".
Fact is when this game gets released it will be hailed as the best looking action game on the market. Stop belittling Team Ninja's efforts.
g: I'm very impressed with Bioshock and Mass Effect...what I'm saying is I can't get overly excited about them, because I wont be able to own them. I can't afford to buy two consoles myself (£700 total) sorry. I will most likely play them at anothers. But I have to stop myself from getting excited over them, otherwise I'll be disappointed. So basically I research the games I will definately be able to play and spend my hard earned cash on. Also games are expensive over here (£40-£50) so I have to pick and choose. So that's my excuse. Sorry for not being rich.
im not trying to belittle anybody efforts because make no mistake about ,Tecmo is one of the best developers out there, especially in the graphics department. but as you said (Fact is when this game gets released it will be hailed as the best looking ACTION game on the market)so your saying that this game looks better than HS or stranglehold or what about even dark sector. I don't think so.an you say the only reason I down talk it is because its only announced for the PS3!! how wrong can you be, im not down talking the game,I just dont think its gonna be the beat all end all game your trying to make it out to be!!
also you cant get excited over games you'll NEVER be able to get!! an I wanna ask WHY? is it because you'll NEVER buy a 360. if that's so, an you have no intention of getting a 360 then there's no need for your comments on the 360 anymore in the future because we now know you would always be biased towards the 360. I'm gonna be buying a Ps3 probably before this year is out.an there's alot about the PS3 that interest me. but I can say if it was not 600 it would have been on my stand by now!! so whats your excuses on not getting a 360!!
I'm a huge NG fan, having finished both the original and Black on very hard, and almost Master Ninja. And NG is coming to the ps3.
Now, it has repeatedly been said before and the developper's always said it, this will be a port of the original game to the ps3, with more improvements. They never mentionned it will be an entirely new game. So if people were waiting for a "new game", then they are wrong.
Just as NG:Black was a great improvement over the original NG (and the replayability was clearly worth it), Sigma will be a major improvement over Black: graphics, animations, Rachel, etc....
The ps3 version looks mindblowing, and that was what I was waiting for. If you people expected to see something completely major and drastic, then it wouldn't be called NG: Sigma but NG2. The port of Resident Evil from PS1 to GC is NOT a good argument because the graphics on PS1 were lame to begin with.
Even though I haven't played Sigma (who did?), watching from the video, I make the assumption that the graphics of Sigma are as good and better than any of the next gen titles, and as good as Gears of War (YES, I finished Gears of War from beginning to end, so please don't use the fanboy argument).
to say NG sigma looks better than GEARS is only a matter of opinion your opinion. an at the same time you guys seem not to realize that im not saying the game looks bad!! that's not what I'm saying at all. but check this out!! if NG sigma looks better than gears an gears look better than ANYTHING the PS3 has, its a shame that it took an OLD XBOX GAME to make the PS3 shine.would you agree!!you did say NG looks better than gears!!
lol that's beyong loopy. But nice one. I like it. If you can keep pulling out those tricks you'll be on your way to the circus soon g.
This ps3 version looks only about 2 to 2.5 times better than original xbox1 version with added details like new shrubs. But now imagine how NG2 will look like on the xbox360 a system that has 12 to 15 times the power of xbox1
game quality, visual quality ratio != raw power 360/ raw power box1
where they hell u comes up this 2.5/14 times better? what is the reference of comparsion? what is your standard of performance/quality ? what is the specification of 1x better ?
you got nothing to make your comment has any meaning.. = =
