A few days before the Tokyo Games Show, Tecmo and Microsoft unveil the first images of Ninja Gaiden 2, for the moment still a Xbox 360 exclusive. Graphically, Sigma doesn't seem too threatened.
I'm a big fan of the Ninja Gaiden series. Ninja Gaiden Black is easily the greatest action game ever made. I kinda hope they keep the same diffaculty as the first one. I like a good challenge. I played Ninja Gaiden Sigma and you can tell that they dumbed it down a bit. I can see the that this game still has it's bloody goodness! Can't wait.
Hell yeah! Ninja Gaiden!
EDIT: What the hell? Who's the morons who are randomly disagreeing with everyone?
Other than the water jumping being automatic (which sucked) how else did they dumb down sigma?
gratest action game ever made.
the graphic basicly the best ever in any platform, they do not use dark environment to cover up for .... texture ect ect
NINJA GAIDEN for lifand they say " what games did the xbox360 got in 2008,. it got nothin " nothin my a@@
i take this game over anygame in any system anytime
not to be a fanboy or anything, but evil-angel, i think you say that to every game.
lol who said this game is coming in 2008?
Looks like Ninja Gaiden Sigma for the PS3..I have a great feeling that NG2 will make it to the PS3 as well..I will predict this game releasing around the end of 2008 or early 2009..which is far far away..
was hoping for better graphics because you know the gameline and storyline will be top notch
Maybe your inner self likes the ps3/ps2 controller more lol
And the funny thing is that these are not the final graphics. It still has a lot of polishing to go through. WOw!!!!
The city looks nice and the gauntlets look cool. Hope they have video of this in action during the conferences.
looks pretty good
wolverine claws look awesome!
Jeez, you could probably cut off a guy's pecker with all of the slicing and dicing going on in those pics.
AWESOME. Uber Gory. NG FTW! Seriously, there are HOT.
hope it gets to be a 360 exclusive, sony got there ninja giaden (a remake lol) now 360 need one . =) Maybe sony gets a remake of NinjaGaiden 2 ,5 years later.=)
I'm sure MS will do anything in their power to keep this game exclusive.
Ninja Gaiden Sigma already came out for the ps3 so i know for sure NG2 have a big chance comin too..and didnt team ninja said they be workin with the ps3 and bringin more games..and is microsoft publishin ng2?
but maybe 2 years later. That way people are all done with NGSigma on PS3, Xbox 360 people don't complain, and both consoles advantages get taken care of.
these images look great , this news has made my day.
I love the last shot how the blood hits the floor with the downward stroke and then splashes back up again.
Already looks as good as Sigma, and this game is early in development. Can't wait til its finished. If they even think about messing with the difficulty, it would be a travesty.
if this game doesn't come to the ps3 ,well its over ,THIS GAME IS THE REASON I HAVE THE ELITE 360BABY .OMFG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!A MAZING.TECMO you guys are GODSZ FASHO
I seriously doubt that it would be "over" if the ps3 doesn't get this. Ps2 didn't get the original and I think it somehow managed to survive.
Either way though, 360 or ps3, this is a day one purchase for me, can't wait.
It will boost sales of the 360, yes even in Japan, guaranteed. But knocking out the PS3, definitely false. Too many games to look forward to. As you said, the PS2 stood toe to toe with Ninja Gaiden (as well as 2 Halo games) and still survived. Anyways, like both of ya'll, and many gamers here, first day purchase for me and my 360.
Off topic: Ok Computer by Radiohead, awesome album.
dude, your such a tit, what difference does it make, ps3 or not, you suggestting that your only interested in games if they are exclusive? its c0cks like you that are bring sites like this down...
its ninja gaiden mate, not anything special, it was exclusive to the xbox 1 and well look how well that did! with the success SIGMA has had on the ps3 i would of thought this will gefo go multiplatform unless M$ step in with their wallet...
doesnt make any difference to me as i got both consoles, maybe you should do the same and try cut out your imature childish behavour... someone should of told your mum crack damages her unborn babys brain, judging by you tho im sure this has become all to clear to her.... poor lady...
i hope it,s coming to the ps3 too.
make the story-line revolve around DOA characters. Of course that is just asking for too much. It looks great, but looks almost identical to its counterparts.(Just finished Ninja Gaiden Sigma a few weeks ago)
There must be a helluv-a-lot going on on screen and hopefully the AI is up to scratch too. Sigma to me was just a bit too old too late. I enjoyed the original better. Prefered the reflections on the wooden floors to the PS3 lighting system. I wouldn't mind if this came out on PS3 too but hopefully the same time or not much later. If it came out earlier I would be peeved!?!
The real Ninja Gaiden made by the true master !
i am sure at some point the PS3 will get "Ninja Gaiden 2-sigma black blade of the night dragon " but prob 4 years later, by wich time the 360 will be on NG3.
still, good fun for both sides ! no one should miss this monster of a game !
it looks like SIGMA. NG stories/gameplay s1cks thats why I just rent them for 2days only..
Yes the NG story lines do suck. I thought Ninja Gaiden on NES had a better story. The gameplay though I have to say is above average. I'm still a bigger fan of the DMC series, mostley because of the story.
Give it to me, give it to me now i tell you! Hope it comes out comes out for both systems, as the guy above me said, no one should miss out on great games. My future library WILL contain this game, together with similar ones like GOW3 (WHEN?!!?), DMC4, HS etc, grrrrrrrreat.
But i read an artical awhile back, where the producer of the game implied that it would never go to the PS3, due to the fact that they might use two of the 360's cores for the AI (they supposidly arnt focusing on graphics as much), and that they wouldn'nt be able to get that level of intelligence on the PS3. Iesh sorry i just mean it to be informative not to flame.
@Demo, dude dont be like that, i never said that, thats not my opinion, i said thats what i read. I used words like Supposidly! and i own a PS3. But irrespective i still read it.
for ur information AI, can be handled by cell as effecient as any other processor. the cell is a number cruncher BEAST. ask homefolding!!!! poor illiterate 360 guys, have no idea what r they talking about.
2 diffrent teams within UBISOFT stated the same thing about PS3 can not handle the A.1 as we as 360 :
The PS3 is superior when it comes to number crunching but AI isn't about number crunching, it's about complex branching IF-statements and I have also read somwhere that the PS3 have difficulty predicting decision branches or something like that. I am a programmer but not a games programmer so this is not based on personal experience but articles I have read.
Articles on PS3 Cell Processor (search for "branch prediction")
http://eric_rollins.home.mi... http://games.indiatimes.com... quote from above source: "The PS3’s processor has impressive streaming floating-point power that is of limited use for games"
"if's" are indeed numbers, it's a 1 or 0 (yes or no). No calculations are done with if statements, just a dicision is made.
the ps3 is more powerful, so yes the AI can be more powerful than the 360. and "if's" ARE numbers, the language just isn't written like that.
can i get a link so i can read for myself.
The PS3 is weaker than the XBOX 360 when it comes to AI - the PS3 architecture does not (and cannot) handle the out-of-order code that is what AI is all about. The advantage the PS3 has is in physics. So if you wanted to make destructible environments than the PS3 is probably going to be better (which is why Crysis is more likely to be ported to the PS3 - IMO). If you want intelligent enemies, the XBOX 360 is going to be better. Having said that, you can do a lot with scripts that give the appearance of intelligence so a lot of this can be obscured and the average person would not know the difference.
And the reality is that your typical computer is much better at AI type code because it has hardware designed to address out of order instruction (MS and Sony stripped that functionality out to reduce cost). So neither are great at it but the XBOX 360 is better.
cool looking good! Lets stop with the 360 and PS3 peeing match for a sec and look at the glory of the screens of a much anticipated game ^^
lol alright flame away... but we should just talk about how cool the game is and not how 360 does this and ps3 does that seeing that the post is screens for a GAME.
Nice screens and gore. And battle with the Spider Ninja clan and their boss.
Graphics look like NGS, which is great, because it's hard to improve on that. The only drawback I'm seeing is that Ryu's suit still look like plastic.
Actually, all the DOA and NG characters have this plastic doll looking feeling. Maybe Team Ninja designed it on purpose...
wow, so nice and Gory. blood effect looks awesome. if its 360 exclusive it be a good start in Japaneses market. thx for screens.
Do the shots look good? Hell yes they look amazing but they are not worlds better than sigma (other than the awesome gore). Considering Itagaki said this game would shame all other games when shown I am a little let down but I guess that is my fault for buying into the hype. The game will surely be a AAA title but I was hoping my eyes would melt when I saw the graphics like they did the first time I saw ninja gaiden 1.
The story says "Graphically, Sigma has nothing to be ashamed of for now.". You changed it to "Graphically, Sigma doesn't seem too threatened."
Are you feeling threatened that Ninja Gaiden II will b**tchslap Sigma graphically? You definately should, but stop twisting your stories.
Sigma wasn't a huge leap in graphics like I thought it would have been, especially those darn cgi scenes...wtf? This, looks amazing and still have time to go. Im a die hard ninja gaiden fan and this will definitely be another AAA game!
Looks like Itagaki saved his energy for this game instead of working on Sigma.
I think the graphics look amazing so far. I don't care how the graphics compare to Sigma in the end or if it stays exclusive to 360. As long as the game play kicks @ss like the original Xbox title I will pick it up on day one like last time. This game was the reason I bought an Xbox in the first place.
I did not buy the Black version but I did receive the updates for the original via Xbox Live. Does anyone suggest picking up the Black version or Sigma for PS3?
....how much blood?this looks awesome, cutting people into pieces never looked like so much fun. I cant wait for this.
.....the Tokyo game show start? This show 'should' be full of new game announcements....i hope Microsoft announce some new games for 2008. I really want to see more on Alan Wake too. Sorry that was off topic....this game looks great.
it starts on the 20th of this month bro. September 20-23. First 2 days only for business folks, the last 2 days are open to the public. And ditto on Microsoft announcing some new games. However I'm really looking forward to Fable 2. Loved the first one.
now let`s guess...
NG2 on X360 will be in:
[email protected] [email protected] [email protected] [email protected]
if in [email protected]
p.s. and after THIS, developers should stop creating games? =))
Itagaki: Ninja Gaiden 2 will make other developers lose their motivation...
was only 720p native resolution
it wasnt lol :)
"sigma in PS3
was only 720p native resolution"
Wrongo buddy. 1080p, full self shadowing, 60fps.
That doesn't detract from this game though. It looks great. I hope it comes over.
It was 720p and upscaled to 1080p by rsx
extract from " http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
Speaking of which, Ninja Gaiden Sigma's 1080p support is somewhat odd. There's a touch more lag and more v-sync issues than 720p, but it's clear from the scaling artifacts that it's not a 1920x1080 game
dint look all that great for a PS3 game id be surprised if it couldn't handle 60fps. It looks like a slightly cleaner version of the Xbox version and the textures have nothing on Gears of War.
though screens are nice... =)
it should be a great game, but I EXPECTED MORE. =)
5 years old and still looking exactly the same.... pretty dissapointed i gotta say, i like the added gore tho! hopefully they change the control system a bit so allow for more skillful combos rather than button bashing or simply holding down one button for about 5 seconds!
If they prove the combat system in the second part, i may buy this game. its good game i try the remake on PS3 but being killed every second is boring. untill now i did not finish the game. combat system is not good and how to save levels is ass hole way.
Now confirm this game for 08 please.
Also, I hope there is an option for all that blood so the mothers around the country dont go nuts.
day one purchase but i hope they bring it to the ps3 later.
wanna play it with the Sixaxis ;-)
Sixaxis. Have you played a game where the sixaxis did anyhting but annoy?
warhawk, ngs,heavenly sword nba 2k7 and resistance but yes there are some games with tacked on m control.
These shots look good enough to crave for it to come to the ps3. Either way it looks like its coming along nicely and should do very well even if its only on 360
Sigh.. I was expecting more.
you see Ryu has a new mask.LOL
Zomg I can't w8 for this since I got Sigma.
