I hope he show some stuff and gives us some info at E3.

I wouldn't be concerned with less powerful console either.

(ITR) below: he aslo said he's not focused on the past yet Sigma's coming out so if NG2 comes out for PS3 it's going to be led by his right hand man/and his team again porting it to the PS3 like BLACK.

I half expect a Wii game coming soon from Team Ninja since they are already working on the DS game of NG.

Ninja Gaiden 2 on PS3, if any developer could truly unlock the power of the PS3 it would be Itagaki-san and Team Ninja! Wow, just WOW. :0>

@ below: Come-on buddy, don't sh!t on my dreams. You never know it just might happen. =P

Itagaki: I wouldn't say return because I've never left. It's only what's visible to you, because we've been developing Team Ninja's core title for the 360 for quite a while now. That's something I've mentioned previously that I've been committed to for over a year. People tend to forget that I'm committed to the 360 so I'll say it again here: we are currently developing a title and we are committed to the 360 as our key gaming platform.

to bad it wont happen.

Wasn't clear enough in what he said lets not jump the gun here. It will be years down the road if it does ever come to the PS3, Sigma and NG2 would be competing against eachother. lol

You dissagree? Read what #2 said then read this quote what #2 said doesnt make any sense.

He may decide to port NG2 to the PS3 later on; all he said is he's focused on the 360 and the PS3 and not the other less powerful console for future instalments of their series. TI speaks in riddles to throw people off so he doesn't trap himself in case he changed his mind this is a good thing for PS3 owners.

(Xi) below: Who said the PS3 was less powerful?.

Xi3663d ago

nor do I think it's more powerful. I think the ps3 and 360 are equal, only really good developers are going to show any difference between the two.

Rybnik3663d ago

Pog. I'm not flaming, but comments like this seem to indicate that the new iterations of both DOA and NG may appear on PS3 sooner than most think:

"Our biggest strength is working on these powerful home systems, so that's always going to be the main path we're going to be taking."

I agree that the main games will prolly appear first on 360 only, but this is showing a slightly more multiplatform attitide than he has in the past...

Xi3663d ago

If anything I can see a new title make it's way onto the ps3... or wii.

"People tend to forget that I'm committed to the 360 so I'll say it again here: we are currently developing a title and we are committed to the 360 as our key gaming platform."

And there you have it.

Itagaki: I think it's an excellent game. Back in the days of Halo 1, when you exited the ship, landed on Halo, looked up at the environment and heard the epic music and saw the Banshees flying overhead--that crosses cultural boundaries. That's a beauty that I think anybody should be able to see. Whether you like the game or not is up to personal taste, but anyone who didn't think that was impressive is pretty insensitive to good games.

Not only did this guy bring one of the very best games ever to the Xbox , his opinion of games is also first class.Actually my opinion of people not liking Halo is that they are not mearly insensitive but ignorant and moronic.

PlayStation3603663d ago (Edited 3663d ago )

that halo is an excellent game. Gameplay is top notch, and online play is very well done. But saying "anyone who doesn't like it is ignorant and moronic" is very immature and hypocritical.

I'm sure there are games out there you don't like, not because they are crappy games, but it may be a style of gameplay you do not prefer. Now is it right that YOU are ignorant and a moron for not admiring said games?

It's good that you have your opinions, and it's even better that you say what you feel. But insulting people who do not love your type of games is not right dude. Now I have my legendary edition of halo 3 reserved, and I'm gonna enjoy my halo game. But it ain't cool coming out with "if you don't like this, your stupid!" BS bro. Just had to get that outta my chest bro, no disrespect. Game on my gaming brothers!!
