GF: "If what we're hearing out of the European retail community is to be believed, it looks like the loss of Itagaki from Team Ninja has opened the doors for the Dead or Alive series to "broaden" it's horizons."
All I got to say is, "I love boobs."
lol. I doubt it though. Xbox360,PS3 is more likely.
I'm pretty sure DOA5 will be on PS3, considering the new Team Ninja with Yosuke Hayashi in charge has expressed their interest in the PS3 (NGS 1&2).
shake the boobs like in NG Sigma?
I've been waiting years for this, bring it on!
That will be awesome, fist day purchase lol
Well it's kind of a no duh now that Itagaki (the PS Nazi) is gone. Ninja Gaiden 2 was never coming to the PS3 according to him, and it didn't just come it came out much better. Tecmo is starting to make exclusive games for the PS3 as well (Quantum). So why keep Dead or Alive on the 360 when you can also have it on the PS3 (where fighting games tend to sell the most), and get double the profit. DOA 4 sold over slightly over 1 million copies on the 360. Put 5 on the PS3 as well and boom you have 2.5 million copies which makes Tecmo happy.
Much respect for Tecmo , NG2 was amazing on PS3!! This game was definitely a 9 and the DOA series always had the upper punch (haha) when it came to boobies and game play and amazing environments!
Personally I would not care which console the game comes to as long as it happens. It been such a long time since DOA 4 I was starting to think they may have given up on the franchise. It would have been nice if they had made the game a PS3 exclusive because we could see what they could do if they just pushed the PS3 but obviously that won't be happening if the game is on 360 as well. With the game being on both consoles I don't see it having that much of a graphical leap as it should.
game is only worth looking at. good graphics and nice assets, or should i say boobets, is the only thing good about DOA. it's more of a button smasher than anything else.
didnt see this coming. I too beleieve it will be teh multi platz
360 owners HOPE it will be multiplat seems a new trend is coming.. And MS are no longer so eager to put their hand in their pockets as they used to as they still havn't seen that money come back yet.
Because I want the "SIGMA" version! The 360 can have their Lady Spartan, but they better put NARIKO as a guest character fro the PS3!
Please be more DOA2 hardcore and less DOA4. PLEASE. I hated how the series changed. I liked it more when it was a simple, fun party game.
LOL Yeah right. DOA has been one of the most competitive fighting games ever, besides the the masterpiece that is the Street Fighter series of course.
DOA ?? i think you're confused ... you meant Virtua fighter as most competitive fighter even on par with Street .. Or maybe tekken ? But DOA never got close to them
This was going to happen again, it happened on the ps2.
Itagaki is gone maybe the series can go back to its roots and not in to the game that makes you look like a perv if you choose a female character.
Itagaki made Team Ninja pervy? You do realize Sigma 2 had some characters redone to look more attractive (Ayane IIRC), new characters introduced with big boobs, a new control option implemented that allows you to jiggle boobs with your controller, and a viral ad campaign that involved fake boobs being plastered on a wall right? 1 person didn't make Team Ninja that way, they were like that way without him!
With Itagaki gone wouldn't any issues with Sony be gone as well? Sounds like he was the only who had problems with them. just have to wonder if its going to be the typical 360 build which will lead to problems on the PS3, or a PS3 to 360 port which might be less problematic. Look to Burnout for example.
knowing the Team Ninja Standard, they will make their games on the Real most powerful system first, then port to the weaker consoles.
The Dead or Alive series was always multiplatform (good times with DOA 2 on the Dreamcast!) until the Xbox was released where it began to go "exclusive". Dead or Alive 5 was first announced in conceptual form in 2006 for the 360 IIRC, a PS3 port wouldn't be completely out of the question.
"lol. I doubt it though. Xbox360,PS3 is more likely." what are you talking about? (taken from article) "It looks like retailers are already being made aware through distribution channels that DoA 5, the long anticipated sequel to Dead or Alive 4 on the Xbox 360 is indeed in the works as a multi-platform title. Details are still sketchy at this point (no specific platforms named), but we can assume that the 360 and PS3 are the prime candidates for the popular fighter to land on."
dead or alive series started with ps1 and saturn... and only made its way to xbox as dead or alive 3. so now, seeing how stvpid itagaki was, it has to return to the playstation brand where it really belongs. tecmo days (and team ninja) with itagaki on it is a sad moment for the company. now they know that partnering with microsoft was their biggest mistake.
It was always a bad idea with a trash of a console, Team Ninja developing for 360 wasn't a good idea in the first place when itagaki was the boss he new that was the biggest mistake of his career, but he stood his ground when he sided with Microshit itagaki really believe in honor.
So... I guess Ninja Gaiden never happened. Crywolf, you are an annoying stupid fanboy. DOA 4 was a fantastic game and saying anything different is a lie. He probably chose to develop on the Xbox 360 only because he doesn't like people like you.
Finally! The return of DOA series to the Sony family. We welcome DOA back in our Sony PS family. Stupid Itagaki is gone! Hahahha
Will DVD9 gimp fighting games again?
yes. Boobs in 720p isnt as good as Boobs in Real 1080p, which is only possibly on the PS3, but it will not happen, since the 360 will drag it down.
Maybe sixaxis boobs will find it's way into DOA5 like in Sigma2
I own with li feng and bayman.
If it does come it'll most likely be both 360 and PS3.
Frig' yeah! I missed it since the last one was on PS2 (I personally rate it higher then Tekken when it comes to fighting games).
I think it's better for all DoA fans that they build it up again without a 360 fanboy at the helm. What really gets me is all of the occupants at the kiddy table seem to think that XBox owns the goddamn series, not once remembering that it started on the Sega Saturn and in the Arcades. DoA is one of the rare few series that has had it's finger in just about every goddamn pie that's been put out on a window. It's a game that should be enjoyed by everyone, but ffs I could care less what console it's on, I just want them to get it right.
after reading this article it just hit me. There hasnt been a single DoA game in a console other than Microsoft's since the PS2's launch in 2000 with DoA2: Hardcore. What the **** unbelivable.
...I could go for some Dead Or Alive. I know other people that could too. I still have DOA2 Hardcore, what a fun fighter!
Good thing Itagaki is gone. It's the best thing that ever happened to Tecmo.
Looking forward to this. Man the fighting genre this gen just keeps getting better and better.
This rumor will more than likely turn out to be fact. But I still think it will be on the 360 as well.
PS3 has proved to be the only console that is fully capable of "bounce" physics x3
See how getting rid of Itagaki has open doors now for PS3 owners? Dude was hating on the PS3 and even admitted it in a indirect way, so I'm glad he is no longer there, if you noticed both Ninja Gaiden games had more added for the PS3 version, and the sad thing is that both are better than Itagaki's installments on the 360. Definitely looking forward to see DOA on the PS3 and what will they do to optimize it.
come on man, of course both NG games came out with more content on the PS3.IT WAS RELEASED A YEAR LATER!!they have to do something to get people to buy a year old game, thats a no brainer, plus they also have time to sort out any problems in the first game(which is a plus) but dont sit here an try an make it seem as if the PS3 gets more content because Itagaki isnt involved.
Hell Yes!...ok im gonna expand on that, since Itagaki left i pretty much gave up on the DOA franchise ever again seing the light of day, but hearing theres a possible 5th installment well to put im simply, im freeking exited! Ayane and Kasumi FTW!
confirmed sixaxis boob jiggling . I'm a phyco when i'm crazy!
It's about time it returned to one of its original homes.
im amazed ppl go GaGa for boobs when they see them every day of their life ( Except for winter ). Anyway my favorite fighting sim was Bloody Roar n street fighter
The title is misleading, if Dead or Alive 5 is in development, it's most likely a muti-platform title (PS3, Xbox 360). I've always enjoyed the Dead or Alive series, and I was really hoping we would get a Dead or Alive 5 some day, so I'm happy with this rumor. Hopefully it's true.
DOA 4 is the one and only game that makes me miss having a 360. As you can see in my profile, I had gotten EVERY Achievement in that game. I used to travel to tournaments and everything. Some of the top fighters in the world have felt the unorthodox sting of my various Quan martial artists. I have been waiting, anticipating, and expecting this to happen for a LONG time. I'm just one announcement away from the most anticipated sequel I have ever requested. Just make sure that Brad Wong, Helena, Lei Fang, Master Genfu, Eliott, Christie, Kokoro, and Ayane are in the game and all will be well.
Tekken and Soul calibur drppped the ball. SF is a 2D fighter. DOA 4 was the only good 3D fighting game this gen. They should make it a PS3 exclusive and use its full potential.
The game will look better if just on PS3. NG Sigma 2 looked so much better cause of disk space for Blu Ray and ps3s power.
Do you really think Tecmo would make it Ps3 only. I don't think they'll abandon the 360. What they could do is make DOA 3&4 for the Ps3 since sony owners didn't get a chance to play them.
PS3 fans have the chance to jerk off too the cgi boobs since they can get pus*y in real life ask your fearless droid leader saaking.
"PS3 fans have the chance to jerk off too the cgi boobs since they can get pus*y in real life ask your fearless droid leader saaking." Funny that since most 360 users are imature teenagers who probably still havnt hit puberty ;-D!!!!! Which reminds me of someone hmmmmmmmm OH YEAH ! YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and ofcoruse the rest of you xbots on here ;-D!!!
how old are you seriously im guessing 8
@gnothe1 "come on man, of course both NG games came out with more content on the PS3.IT WAS RELEASED A YEAR LATER!!they have to do something to get people to buy a year old game, thats a no brainer, plus they also have time to sort out any problems in the first game(which is a plus) but dont sit here an try an make it seem as if the PS3 gets more content because Itagaki isnt involved." Dude...tell me you are not serious....there are a few games that was ported over the PS3 where not a damn thing was done but some minor touch-ups and no added content, no updated visuals, no extra levels.....and also, please read on Itagaki's take on how he feels about the PS3, if he was still there, the PS3 version of the first installment probably would have never seen the light of day, he even said himself he was pissed that they released the first one on the PS3 w/o his consent or acknowledgment and he tried to block it...so yes, I am sitting here and telling YOU and everyone else that now that he is gone, they have more free reign to do what they want even more and also now you probably don't have to deal with games that came out for the 360 a WHOLE YEAR AFTER for it to come to the PS3. Also, if Itagaki didn't have such a influence, then how come other iterations of DOA never made it to PS3...I'll tell you why, because he never had intentions of making it for PS3, he had a strong influence over at Team Ninja and it was obvious, why do you think that now after he left even when there where rumors about tension with him and Team Ninja now all of sudden you are starting to see things come out of the wood works for the PS3 from them? Do the math....
