Ninja Gaiden Sigma & Virtua Tennis on US PSN Today

Without warning, like the shadowy figures known only through whispers in the night, Ninja Gaiden Sigma has made its presence known on the PlayStation Store. The demo will be available today in the US, one day prior to its Japanese release, alongside a demo for Virtua Tennis.

Also coming out today are trailers for Gauntlet II, The Wheelman, John Woo's Stranglehold and The Godfather. The full version of Ninja Gaiden Sigma is set for a June release (on disc).

It is the 27th in Japan, which happens to be the 26 in the states, so by paper it is 1 day gap. (Ninja Gaiden Sigma, PS3, Virtua Tennis 3)

I didn't want to approve this story
until I confirmed that the demos were actually available online.

Sadly, I went to the store, to discover that they're not. Hopefully any time soon, though...


Just thought I'd share an unrelated, but positive sidenote:

What HAS been just released, is the new Folding@Home update, version (1.1).

After visiting the store, I re-entered the Folding program, and was immediately prompted to download the new update. A recently-related story was talking about improved calculating abilities. What an UNDERSTATEMENT that was!!!...

After the update, my PS3 is now crunching numbers at a staggering .035 seconds per frame - compared to a pre-V.1.1 processing time of .07 spf...That's an incredible 100% improvement. It's estimating a requirement of a measly four hours for completing a total unit comprised of a half-million frames. In comparison, my PC is currently crunching at 54 seconds per frame (over 1,500 times slower!!!)

Sorry, but my enthusiasm forced me to share that unrelated tidbit of good news.

That sounds great...
mine will be on Sunday night anyway, but double the processing should be matched with some increased attention.

Are the American & Canadian stores the same? Just out of curiossity?
I know the currency difference, but they offer the same stuff right!
Torch  +   3136d ago
I'm pretty sure it is
And just having now looked at my credit card statement, I can also confirm that Canadians can rest assurred that the prices listed on their PSN network are indeed in Canadian funds (I'm showing a charge of CN$6.34 for my MKII purchase back on the 14th.)

...Unlike some OTHER companies <ahem!>NINTENDO</ahem !>, who like to display and charge in our American neighbours' currency...INCLUDING THE FEDERAL/PROVINCIAL TAXES!!!...AARGH!!!!!

Mortal Kombat 2?
What did you think of Mortal Kombat 2? I haven't gotten that one yet!

@Firewire: Re: Mortak Kombat II
Wha?...you mean you didn't know?

It's been out since...well, at least the 14th of April. If you're a fan, you may want to pick it up, mostly because of the online play (although it could use some refinement, such as some sort of communication feature - can't help but feeling really bad and rude when leaving an opponent without giving notice, even though it gives me no choice).

But for six bucks, you definitely can't go wrong if you've ever liked or played the game...I know that I've already gotten my money's worth...

Uh, although my gameplay may express otherwise. ;)

I suck at MK2
But it's still worth downloading. Seriously, there must be people who still play and practice. Everytime I play online, some guys is busting out some sort of fatality on me.

Can anybody tell me why Sony time and again sticks it to Europe.
Com´on Europe bought as many PS3´s in the first month as were sold in the US in 4.
