The Japanesse site Bloomberg states that more then 400,000 copies of Ninja Gaiden Sigma for PS3 have be sold. Here is a Google translation.
i cant get crap from the translation though.
For PS3 sale of software “NINJA GAIDEN ##” worldwide was favorable. In the country June, in Europe and America sale was started in July, you say that 450,000 book was already sold.
who says ?
when do the npd numbers come out ?
thanks jam9. do you have the link ?
ANOTHER LOSER DISAGREES FOR NO REASON.
too many losers.
is it too stores or from stores too people ?
Tecmo said so in the interphase achievement expectation (not sure this term is correct or not. It's something Tecmo announced to the stakes holders in the middle of year how they achieved the sales plan of the year).
So, I guess it's not the number how many copies are sold to customers but to shops.
I mean besides blu-ray movies, a 3 year old (last gen) game with no online features will do for the lemmings.
btw...lemmings, I got some fat from a porterhouse steak, I ate only 3 days ago, would you like that as well?
Laughing @ You Pathetic Lemmings
@2.3: "At the moment I am playing Resistance new maps , Oblivion , Super stardust HD , Rainbow six and Ninja gaiden"
I played those games, with the exception of RFOM, as far back as 16 months ago. (oblivion 3/06 - 360) Grats! on just playing them now lemming. (seriously, want that steak trash?).
p.s. I have a laptop next to my 360, so its np for me to pause the game, hit refresh, then reply.
Games I am currently playing, Shadowrun, Overlord, and Darkness.
@2.2 Nice try to get personal information out of me, unfortunately I'm not dumb enough to take the bait, lemming. Lets just say I'm secure enough in the knowledge of who I am, and what I have. I thank god every day for everything I have, and do not feel the need or desire to brag about the things god has blessed me with.
@2.4: Judging from your avatar, it seem to me YOUR the one with skeletons in your basement.
@2.5: WOW? REALLY? Come to think of it, even Space Invaders had a leaderboard in 1978. Welcome to next gen gaming, lemming!!!
@2.7: Believe what you want.
And if they have a 360 all they have is another generic FPS. So what are you trying 2 say?
Do you even own ANY system? I seriously doubt it. I also seriously doubt that you have any friends, relationships, a job, ... basically I doubt you have a life. So here is what you do, start working out because you just sound like an absolutely pathetic couch potato, get a new word, because any girl will smack you silly after you've said lemmings 3 times in under a minute, and move on, because with all the negativity you give Sony it sounds like you're a disgruntled employee who got fired for company stealing.
Dude, you again with the "Lemmings" GROW THE HELL UP!!
"I mean besides blu-ray movies, a 3 year old (last gen) game with no online features will do for the lemmings."
- At the moment I am playing Resistance new maps , Oblivion , Super stardust HD , Rainbow six and Ninja gaiden
"no online features"
- Score Boards (world wide)
So what else do you have to play? oh wait you don't even own a console cause you live on here trying to grow hair on your chest, anyways have fun flaming Cyber going to play a game....
Move out of your parents basement and get a life you retard
"a 3 year old (last gen) game with no online features will do for the lemmings"
lol. The game has online leaderboards.
Wow, people disagree with me saying the NGS has online leaderboards. Amazing.
And yeah mister cyberthing, space invaders had leaderboards. Were they online ? I don't think so. But if you bash such functions for a single player game, you might as well bash those functions for the 360 ya know.
How can you sound religious and be such a jackass in the same comment?
Maybe you should ask yourself "What Would Jesus Post?"
You dare mention God as part of your rant!
Tell me, which God would you be referring to???
...Yeah, I'm sure that God is really, really proud of your condescension, trolling, bashing, negativity, and anal retention towards others, as nothing more than a desperate means to cover your own loneliness and insecurities.
You think that appreciation is enough to satisfy yourself?
If you are living in your parents basement, have no friends, relationships, jobs or otherwise then how do you stand yourself not being a part of society and leeching off of your own parents?
Instead of appreciation maybe you should ask for forgivness and not only from god but to your parents as well for not doing anything with all of the gifts they have given you?
Appreciation is great but being a good person is a lot more than words uttered in prayer its action.
If I have offended you by misinterpretting your current conditiion then I apologize but if I am partially right about your living conditions and social status then think about who you are and what you are doing.
cyberb!tch still complaining about all things PS3 huh. poor kid cant afford a PS3 so all he can do is b!tch. i wonder how many times he asks his GOD to give him a PS3 even if has to go out and steal one. MS fans like this that should be looked down upon by other MS fans,instead of applauding what this kid does, same thing goes for certain PS3 fans......so when this site gets out of the beta stage, will there be mods for the site?
ive heard you state before that you've been a gamer for around 2 decades. DOES ANYBODY BELIEVE YOU ARE ANYWHERE NEAR 30 YEARS OF AGE (earth years) IF you are you need to cut off your internet connection because it now has you caught in its web of false living. be careful, Net Need is REAL and i think you have it. Either that or sony really did build an efficient factory where the room you stayed in use to be. sentinels are robots so i guess you aint even trying to hide that so kool
"For PS3 sale of software “NINJA GAIDEN ##” worldwide was favorable. In the country June, in Europe and America sale was started in July, you say that 450,000 book " instead of units it is books , how reliable than the numbers ????????????
Its the google translator that translates words the numbers will remain the same.
And other places have reported similar numbers in sales as well.
Actually, a lot of game sales news come from Bloomberg and they are accurate. I also believe than Google translation doens't change the numbers.
Back to topic, great news. Cant wait to play this game.
Then again the PS3 fans have been, can you say starving for new games, even though this is a remake.
So stop the Folding, BD watching, Resistance/Motorstorm replaying and go out and purchase this game.
Yes I know more games on the way...On another note, READ ALI G's comment? WTF..
you chime in on what games we're playing. Because despite what you're writing...there are a hell of a lot of games that I play all week long on my PS3, plus all of the extra goodies that the bulletproof machine allows me to do for free. Veiled self-agrandizement and condescending remarks only make you look a slight bit confused and desperate. And I for one know that, that's not you kewlkat.....you're too good for that, so Grow up and stop throwing the i.e.d.'s out the back window. All three systems are coming along and this genration couldn't be getting off to a better start. I am a Super Satisfied PlayStation owner and have been since '94, and played Ninja Gaiden on my nes since '88, so to talk "down" to Sony players is somewhat laughable when this game has been around this long as if Microsoft invented it or something.
The XBox version was excellent, but so is Sigma in it's own right and subtle differences, so to say, "I played that already" is (by so many fanboys) just showing a level of insecurity which doesn't need to be revealed. SNE needs this game to move off the shelves and I'm glad it is. Devs need to see that the sleepy PlayStation Nation is still out there and alive, waiting for the NEXT....
This shows that if you build it (correctly ahem..Bethesda, Ubisoft).. they will come. I'm sure NG2 will blow all of our socks off too so we'll just have to wait for it.
Hmmm now R6V or the Darkness which should I play now...., or maybe MLB '07 The Show?
Aww hell..it's beautiful outside...I'll probably head down to float the river for a while and gawk @ some TEXAS hotties. C u all later =]
Is it true that everything is bigger in Texas, I hope so cause I like me the big chicks :/
but looking at the trends, with games that have been most talked about and have sold well, I'm not going to dabble in what one likes over the other the past 7+ months the PS3 has been on the market.
Yes you can only speak for yourself. But the numbers do not lie. If every PS3 games was online, we could have a better picture of what
games have been played on a daily bases besides by going with the numbers.
For one thing all I have seen is
Gamers Folding, watching mad HD movies, and playing like 2 great games.Of course I see other trends , like guys like you owing 5 PS3's and gazillion software, but I wouldn't classify you as the the average casual gamer, would we?
IMO, you might think other games are great but come on, who you fooling how many great titles?
Plus we consistantly hear the PS3 has needed more games, not just from Sony themselves, but from Gamers that have had the PS3, as well as those who are waiting to buy one. While you can speak for yourself since you have a gazillion games and HD movies, for which you love them all and think they are all great, I beg to differ.
It's OK to justify yourself for being early adopter, since you have the means of such luxury, Sh!t even I know Sony needs more good titles. No need to get all defensive, I know you enjoy your PS3, just I know a lot that haven't done much and waiting for titles. there..there, it's that simple.
kewlkat. We're still cool and I would hope that this wouldn't change the situation that much. All I'm saying is it's not good to generalize because believe it or not kewl, some people are just having fun playing on the PS3. Unless you're watchig all PS3 owners 24/7 around the world how would you know what "we" are all playing? NGS is awesome yes, but I can easily throw in the Darkness or R6V or Oblivion and those games work for me and are GREAT on the PS3 and the 360. I just really didn't see the need to talk "down" to PS3 fans when there are planty of us playing PS3 games out right now that you don't hear about kewl. I think the games are (multiplat.) coming along better and that they're starting to come alive on the PS3 when the devs put in a little sweat equity. ~ That was my point. =]
btw - I did not push disagree with either time.
Tecmo is gonna love the PS3 =D
ps: Chapter 3 currently in Ninja Gaiden Sigma.
Getting my copy next week. Should hold me off till august when the steady stream of games start.
When you are starving you will eat anything. remeber those guys who got stranded on a cold mountain. They ended up eating thier dead friends. What choice do Phony fans have. Either buy Sigma on leave thier black box in cold storage.
Ya but if i get bored I play games on my PC because I know it wont die on me unlike some other piece of hardware I know. Not to mention if it gets bad enough for the other fans who don't have a gaming PC then they can enjoy their backwards compatibility that the xbox so fortunately lacks for most titles except for a small handful.
Game shortage is a legitimate part of a console's life. Let Sony fans enjoy it just like you enjoyed your X360 beginnings. When you're waiting for something, you're likely to appreciate it more when it comes, so it has its own kind of beauty.
We're not "Phony" fans, but I'll agree we are "starving" for games like you said. The thing is though, we know of the games that are coming out, but we just have to wait for them. This is kind of like when it took MS about a year to release one of it's best titles Gears of War.
When I say phony it is aimed at Sony for not being upfront.
I have nothing against PS3 fan. I hope to be onew but SOny is not making easy
If anyone didnt get this game..its awesome..it be worth the money!! so pick it up...
sounds like alot of xboxs are jumping ships the,ve seen the light not red ones that is
wow knew it would do good but not that good.
so sad that part 2 will be a 360 exsclusive
Not sad, just good business sence.
"so sad that part 2 will be a 360 exsclusive"
And where are you getting your information? That's just a rumor, Tecmo hasn't said what system NG2 is going to be on.
Ok, quick question. How do I get disagrees for pointing out the truth that Tecmo has not announced which systems NG2 is going to be on. For all we know, it could be PS3 exclusive, 360 exclusive, or multi platform. If you find one confirmation from a reliable source that NG2 is going to be 360 exclusive, then I will shut up. But as I said above, all I was doing was pointing out the truth. Please do not click disagree because someone is pointing out the truth that may be inconvenient to you. Disagreeing means that you do not agree with someone's opinion, not with facts.
If you still want to believe that NG2 is for 360 only, read the note on this page:
It is only listed as 360, because the original was on Xbox 1. The note reads:
NOTE: This game has not been confirmed for release on Xbox 360, and has also not been confirmed or denied for planning on another system. Please check back for official info.
you spelled "sence" wrong. is sense and yeah i agree with the op post
The article says that original NG on Xbox sold near 1,500,000 and thats a platform Japanese avoid. If NGS does better than that on PS3, Tecmo may indeed be persuaded to consider more PS3 games.
If they do see the PS3 as a more standard platform then maybe NG2 will be multi platform. Not saying it's gonna happen but a guy can dream can't he?
Edit: So I can't dream? I never said it was nor said it wasn't. If your gonna disagree explain yourself instead of being a child.
Tahts a different story
If these numbers are correct, and sales tend to be getting better, then hopefully we hear Team Ninja speak of another Ninja Gaiden coming to PS3.
I'm gonna purchase this game as soon as I move home again. Atm I'm playing my PS3 on a 28" SDTV with TV speakers :(
Got a 32" LCD with 5.1 at home.
I wonder if Blu-ray sales will take a dip now that PS3 actually has a game worth playing? We'll see.
This is good news for Sony, looks like the PS3 has a hit on its hands. However, it should be noted that the sales would likely have been double had it been released on the 360. Just look at "the Darkness" released on the same day for both systems:
How many companies are going to continue to release PS3 exclusives when they can sell double on the 360?
that's pretty sad xbox is out a year longer and has 8mill more sold
You xbox fans keep calling it a remake but less then 1/4 of playstion owners owned the orginal xbox and even less bought that game...so to playstion owners its a brand new game...because i know people who did even know about black...and got it for the ps3..so u might as well count it as a new game its like counting a shemue 1 remake as a remake how many people auctally played the first one...
This is big news for sony fans. And will open the eyes to developers everywhere who thinks that their exclusives will flop.
It doesn't even seem those sales are good at least I would think.
I'd say 450,000 is a great number, considering the game hasn't even been out a week yet.
I had Ninja Gaiden for Xbox, and STILL bought Sigma. This is a great game that should not be passed up.
I bought my PS3 on a whim after owning my 360 for over a year, and I am greatly impressed at the quality of the system. There are things I like about the 360 (Live, dashboard, controller) and there are things I like about the PS3 (More stable, reliable, better built). I don't understand blindly following one company because your little minds can't comprehend (or are afraid) that there are other (often better) things out there.
I for one are gonna buy this game ASAP. The benefits are:
1) I get to enjoy an amazing gaming
2) I get to help the sales of this game - the more this game sells, the more likely it'll open developers eyes and get them to consider PS3 exclusives. So if you guys want Tecmo to put NG2 on the PS3 and perhaps make more exclusives,we'd better buy it ASAP.
3) Get pre-occupied till August - when a flow of AAA titles comes.
So PS3 owners - Buy this game for the sake of more exclusives :)
(this also applies to other PS3 games)
there's little doubt that they'll bring over even more franchises to appease their customers. This is great news, and I can't imagine why the following people are trying to turn this into even more anti-Sony fodder:
Ya those are the usual flamers that appear in any positive Sony article. They such big fanboys that it kinda makes me sick sometimes. But I hear towels work wonders for fevers. :) See any1 can flame I just did it because they are starting to get on my nerves.
Edit: yes nice_cuppa you are not a culprit my bad.
sort your life out mate.
i said if its true then ok......great.
the translation was crap.
in no way did i put negativity on Sony or ps3 or this game.
if the numbers are true there quite good.
well done tecmo.
thanks for the apology hippy.
Itagaki says NG2 is for the 360. He claims working one platform makes a game better than if a project was split in two to work on others and this is true. Hopefully the sales of Ninja Gaiden will help change this.
Disagree with me all you want, but this is the number they sold to the stores, not through to the customers.
That's not to say they won't sell them to customers, I'm sure they will, it's a great game and deserves the sales, but there wasn't 450,000 first day/week sales of this game, as Tecmo's estimate for worldwide lifetime sales of this game is 500,000, which is a bit low imo, I hope it's higher.
I guess we'll see for sure in another two weeks, NPD is out the 19th (which includes sales through today). Don't be surprised when you see a different number there than here...
Who Says Xbox 1 games don't Sell any more. Who said that the shelve life was 4 years?
Best Game on Ps3 right now is a Xbox game.
This is not a good sign. How many will people who enjoyed and love this game will cross over once part 2 drop?
What is wrong with you?If its on the PS3 its nto and xbox game
I will be completely honest and say that the only thing I got out of that japanese article was that Ninja Gaiden and 450,000.
Did anyone else understand it at all?
" but also this day becomes with further rise" What?
"The same company preceding day period is announced according to the correction of interphase achievement expectation of of December of 07 "
If this makes you laugh like it did me please click the green plus so I may critique it even more thank you.
Cyber sentinal and darkEquitus need to get a life instead of tryna flame another system. What i don't understand is why they would waste sooo much time trashing a games console when they could be playing those 'great' Xbox 360 games that we keep hearing so much about from them. Maybe they're bored and have nothing else to do - which probly means those great games they keep talking about aren't so great after all considering that they have nothing else to do but wage a non-existant 'war' with people who have a different games console. Or it could be that they are sooo cheesed out by their Xbox 360 being of the 25 million that are defects, that they have to vent out thier frustration that they have with microsoft onto the people that chose wisely and didn't cheap-out on a Unreliable 360 but instead purchased a more expensive, and therefore a more reliable and future-proofed console which has a bevvy of features INCLUDED (look up that word in the Dictionary, cz you Xbots have to by add-ons to actually have a COMPLETE console, and then rant and rave about the PS3 costing sooo much. Xbox with the equivalent stuff that the PS3 has costs more - fact). I Also think that you Xbots are jealous of Pople that have a console with a less than 1% failure rate, because you have a cheap piece of $hit which has around about a 25% failure rate.
If you guys don't wanna say anything productive that has anything to do with the News, then just stay in your Xbox forum insted of tryna cause meaningless agro for others.

1. I am not an xbox fan, I am a gaming fan. I have own every console since the NES days. I have been playin MP PC games since the days of doom.
I have a choice whether to play any of my console (yes every sony console bar ps3)But what about you. Why reyou on here. Is it youhave so much time because you have nothing to play. As I said, I have the money for a PS£ and will buy one when it is worth while. I rather have the money sitting in the bank until then. And yes, one of my 360s dies, so what I waited a weekand in the meantime I re-jogged my schedule and idulged in a little psp. PC and wii fun.
See, it is all about the games.
Yes you have a 1% failure because 99% of the time your console is in cold storage as there is nothing yet to play on it.
I am still waiting for Sony to announce the beggining of the next gen
You go on like M$ are the first comapny to hae a problem. I had to send 3 sony battries back before they blew up. And don't let me start on their Sony Smart phones.
am defendin ps3 too toss me some bubbles. 450,000 seems a bit extreme though. Killer if true am lovin ma copy
Well I'm not going to crash on the XBox 360 but its going to be obvious that Ninja Gaiden 2 is coming to PS3 probably going to be Ninja Gaiden 2 Sigma.
if those numbers are true, Ninja Gaiden 2 may just be gracing Sony's big black console at some point in the future (maybe not day and date with 360 version, but certainly 6 months to a year later).
i'm glad the game is doing well. it's great.
Lets all hope!:)
Damn thats good for a PS3 game!I'll pick it up next week.(playing R6V and Darkness right now) PSN:Shysun
Edit:It's the best game out right now...PS3/360/PC whatever!
is Vegas any good??? I was thinking about getting it, but does it set itself apart from the other 500 FPS Swat/WW1-2 games??
but my roommate *LOVES Vegas.
from what i've played, it's definitely a must have if you're a PS3 owner and want another shooter besides Resistance.
This would convince team ninja to make Ninja Gaiden 2 Epsilon for ps3 after Ninga Gaiden 2 dark grey is released for xbox 360... :P
Although i would be happy with just the Ninja gaiden 2 making an apperarance.
