A lot of people seem to be forgetting something – Bungie's made a PlayStation game before.
I thought Rockstar did the port to the ps2.
You're right. Rockstar Toronto did the PS2 port.
Yeah, Rockstar did port it and if I recall properly, they bought rights to Oni some years ago. Also, Oni is one of my all-time favourites with perfect fighting system(incredibly technical which rewarded clever play, not button mashing) so that means article failed twice. @below:I don't listen to reviews. I talked with people who have enough brain to think for themselves and they loved the game. Environments were a bit bland, but combat system was perfect and storyline(if you actually followed it) was better than most games have today.
Oni was the most boring bland one dimensional pseudo anime third person fighter i've ever played.. all reviews will say the same
If you're getting into game journalism do some research before you write an article, so unprofessional..
I agree so unprofessional so write an article Bungie never actually worked on the PS2 version Rockstar ported it..
1. Write retarded article 2. Try annoy fanboys by posting false uneducated information 3. ???? 4. Profit
I guess I was one of the few that really enjoyed this niche game on PS2. It also came out on PC, but coming much later to PC gaming I was never able to get the sound to work. :P
why o why Rockstar?? i bet that this game sold a couple of copies just because of having Rockstar on the cover
LOL another article on N4G where they i.e the site hasn't done their homework. What ever happened to journalistic integrity?
I guess you have to consider the source. I have never heard of this site, case and point.
They can just ask Sony/NaughtyDog/Insomniac for help :)
Not only are they wrong, but they contend that developing on PS2 and PS3 are tantamount to the same thing. Ask Free Radical (now Crytek UK) if PS2 experience equates to PS3 success.
wether they worked for ps before or not....IT WAS FOR PS2...NOT PS3 think its safe to say there has been new talent, new hardware, spftware, and technology so that they can make a better game than the one the poor excuse for journalist used.
It would be relavent if it was actually Bungie who made the PS2 version of Oni, they only made the PC title, Rockstar Toronto did the PS2 port. Regardless, your port will only go as far as the game, I haven't played Oni so it's not a knock against the game, just the logic some people use like in this article.
Yes. And it sucked. It was not good. Made in the PS2's early days. Unlike Halo, wasn't in conceptual development for *years*
Apparently, a lot of people also seem to forget that Bungie never developed that game for PS2.
I remember Brute Force lol.
Bungie can make an excellent game on any platform they choose. They are a top notch developer. anyone who says otherwise is a fanboy idiot.
so many bungie article, not even IW leaving or FFXIII going multiplat had so many articles
Bungie.net describes Oni as "Bungie's first console project". The PS2 version was not a port, it was developed alongside the PC and Mac versions. Just because some of the technical stuff was outsourced to Rockstar Toronto doesn't mean Bungie didn't make a game for the PS2. But, y'know, if you want to split hairs, Bungie has a very active forum for you to bring it up on…
From a game design and writing perspective, this may be true. But from a development perspective, this just isn't true. Rockstar developed the PS2 port and even published the PS2 port. No matter what Bungie says, there's no way you can change these facts.
