Wasn`t this supposed to be 1080P?

yeh i think so.... *thinks.....*
Lord Anubis  +   3182d ago
it wasn't, it is.

I'm assuming they played the game on 720p or its a typo.

the demo runs at 1080i
sonarus  +   3182d ago
Am pretty sure my demo ran at 720p

Demo runs at 1080p
I clicked the info button on the remote of my 37" Westinghouse 1080p monitor. It showed it running at 1080p.

1080p on my
1080p set also.

Athlon -
I think the Westys run everything at 1080p, don't they? I've been following the Westy 37" for a long time now, and AFAIK it upscales everything to its native 1080p.

A bit off topic but all this does is make me wonder about the next version of NG. If it's multi or not. I am a bit jealous that the PS3 gets this...I'm still not sure if I will buy it yet. It would be really odd though if Sony payed to get this game made and the next one was still exclusive to Xbox.

Ninja Gaiden 2
is supposed to be 360 exclusive. Itagaki doesn't do ports. Thats why Sigma got a complete graphics overhaul, more bosses, etc..He's all about quality ...........It doesn't matter all the drones in this post only care about the resolution. You know what's funny I bet they didn't even know what 1080p was before the PS3 hype machine.....By the way drones if you increase the resolution you will cut the frame rate every time. By the way do you think the human eye can even easily detect the difference? Do you know the difference between a 1080 interlaced signal, and one in progressive scan. This post is about the game not the reslution....If your vision isn't good enough you can't even see in 1080p. Do you know the optimal distance to sit away from the television so the retina and lense in your eye can refract the light for optimum 1080p viewing....Better yet I recommend a sundial so you can calibrate actual sunlight coming through your window...............Sony has poisoned your mind...

you can be sure ng2 will be on the ps3 also. 1080p 30fps is better than 720p 60 fps, if the 30 fps are constant!
techie  +   3182d ago
that's why it's 1080p at 60fps. As is DMC4

I'm not that excited about NGS. It's like they tried to remake the first Devil May Cry...and failed.

Ninja Gaiden will NEVER be Devil May Cry.
Double-Edged  +   3182d ago
I just played Devil May cry 3.
It's so J-pop....

dont compare it to Ninja Gaiden... He's the SUPER NINJA
Bloodmask  +   3182d ago
you are an idiot
Sigma will be the best action game on the PS3 period. NGBlack was my favorite XBOX game. The only reason why you are saying that is bc it was released on xbox 1st. There are plenty of reasons why it is better.

Enemies that actually fight back, and block that aren't just combo multipliers
No cheesy voice acting
Interesting, and useful moves and weapons that actually chage gameplay Not just for flash......all the handguns in Devil were pretty much useless
A game designed for hardcare gamers with a difficulty level that most will complain about
Don't get me wrong I own all the devil may cries but it will never surpass the quality graphics, gameplay, and hardcore difficulty of any ninja gaiden made on xbox or after.
.......That is a fact, ask anyone who has played it on XBOX, or anyone who plays Sigma
.......Move on troll

Am definetly getting this. The difficulty impresses me i havnt had a good single player challenge. I never played this for the xbox but the demo was pretty cool. No good games are droppin except for the darkness and am not so sure the whole concept works that well for a first person shooter if i hear good stuff when it drops i'll probably get that too
Double-Edged  +   3182d ago
PS3 owners should get this.

I approve!!
IBLEEDBLU  +   3181d ago
NG will do great
loved the demo...loving the two sword action & like the spear.

and i think its release date is start of july so it will keep PS3 gamers happy until the true AAA titles hit the stores

i will pick this up 4 sure

Who the hell do you think you are accusing people of being drones just because they note the resolution of the game? That's a pretty asinine remark to make while assuming that people with 1080p sets don't have a clue about the tech behind it. Name me any other device on the market that outputs 1080p signal around the launch of the PS3. On of the biggest points about this game was the developer pushing 1080p at 60fps. Don't tell me it's not about the game. Frames per second as well as visual presentation helps make up the gameplay. Don't mean to get defensive but was just an unnecessary first post.
