nice interview. however, after the interview with Itagaki, i have a funny hunch that there's some discord in the House of Team Ninja: almost like one developer wants to stick strictly with one console, while the other developer wants to broaden the franchise to other markets. i'm more for the latter approach, as it will be beneficial to all gamers.

TheXgamerLive6405d ago

that good at all. Definately more like a port, so I don't care to get it on the XBOX 360. I'd rather not see it come my way in it's present form.

zypher6405d ago

so, you don't want an already great game, with vastly improved graphics, new enemy types and enemy AI, new bosses, a completely new playable character, plus additional moves for the original protagonist to come your way? okay. i think this has more to do with you being a bit upset that the series is finally coming to a non-XBox system, and less to do with it supposing to be a "port".

me myself: i've already beaten it on the original XBox (or rather on the 360 via backwards compatibility). but with the new additions such as new moves, new enemies, new playable characters etc. (including motion-sensing control) i think it'll warrent another purchase, just as long as it's sub-$50.

TheXgamerLive6404d ago

I haven't played a demo yet, so I could be wrong. But I don't think so.
Improved is as in very little, so it's just not worth buying.
Maybe the next title in the series if there is one, and one that's designed to fully utilize next gen. hardware.

Its not the sequel!!! For NJ 2 EVERYTHING will be new.At the end of the day, NGS is just Ninja Gaiden Black with better graphics and an extra playable character. At least Ninja Gaiden Black was $20. But I digress. Its still Ninja Gaiden and it will be great (even though its not being made by Itagaki himself - he's now starting on NJ 2 on the 360). Plus, since its the first, you know your already getting a great game.

eques judicii6405d ago

All your stuff may or maynot be correct... but still, it is a port of the same game but with some different features..

much like mgs 2: substance on the xbox??? didn't that game suck??

some franchises need to stay on one console and under one developer. Nothing in sigma appeals to me.

DJ6405d ago

I'll definitely give this game a shot, especially since the Xbox guys gave it so much angry/joyous praise. I keep hearing "it's awesome..but it's so hard..and i couldn't beat it, but it was so awesome!" etc, heh.

TheXgamerLive6404d ago (Edited 6404d ago )

I remember a time in the game I was fighting a sort of guardian samarai warrior on horse back and his magical minnions kept disappearing and re appearing where ever I would move, It was tough as hell to beat but I finally did it. I was proud, lol.

The underwater missions were also very hard but fun also. He has some great moves and the cities were huge for a last gen, title.

Yes, the game is fun, you should buy it and have fun playing it, I just was saying earlier that it only looks a bit dressed up to me, not a true next gen, title, but still fun:))

They need to make a true sequel to Ninja Gaiden 2, that was the most satisfying combat I've experienced in a hack n slash game.

micdagoat191575d ago

been playing 1&2 on and off since they were released. I usually will play until I get frustrated then take another year off lol. Nver tried 3 or the 4th one even though they are in my backlog.

Domestupidname1575d ago

I tried to go back to Sigma but good god those controls are just insufferable. Couldn't do it.

Is PS Now fairly consistent with a good internet connection? Do the games offer trophy support?

SamPao3297d ago (Edited 3297d ago )

yes and yes. Go read on forums, you only hear good things once your connection is good enough. (and you don't need a very fast one)
Trophy support is there.

did you even watch the vid?
on 20 seconds they tell you about trophy support :P

JoGam3297d ago (Edited 3297d ago )

They need to bring Socom II

NeonEnigma3297d ago

No, i was mainly concerned with hearing a users opinion of the service so i just commented. But I will be giving this a try tonight

morganfell3297d ago

Yes it works and works very well. Trophy Support is there as well as cloud saves for any game progression.

bouzebbal3297d ago

Doesn anyone know if PS Now supports 3D gaming?
U3 and Stardust were good in 3D.

morganfell3296d ago (Edited 3296d ago )


As of January, no 3D support. Now is not set up to properly detect your 3D display and manual choice is off since 3D requires a massive amount of bandwidth. Frame packing doesn't work well of bandwidth that currently supports smooth play in standard mode.

I would think it could be done without a hit but they would have to substantially increase the intial cache size during the game launch on the resident system (PS4, PS3, Vita, PS TV, or Sony TV) that is running Now.

S2Killinit3297d ago

yeah. I have never tried it with a fighting game yet. But the games I've tried worked just fine. Never tried multiplayer either though. I didn't eve know you could also play multiplayer games on PS NOW.

Scatpants3297d ago

It works great on my vita. My internet connection is fairly good, but not the best.

Bobby Kotex3297d ago

When I beta tested it, I had a crappy DSL connection and it worked flawlessly.

Skate-AK3297d ago

I have 18mb/s download and it worked pretty well for me. The game I played was a simple hunting one though.

NeonEnigma3297d ago

Thanks everybody for feedback, i was pretty intent on believing that streaming a game to my ps4 would work like crap, but after streaming shadow of the colossus to my ps4 im actually pretty excited about it. Its definately going to help me knock out some of my backlog!

I love ps now, think about 100 + ps3 games streamed right away to your tv. Don't have to wait for gamefly, don't need to get up and go to the store. Instantly streamed to you from an internet connection. Think about it. gamefly two disc plan runs you 22.00 a month for two disc and sometimes you have to wait. 2-4 days for a game. $44.00 for 3 months gets you unlimited access to ps3 games and soon ps2 and ps1. If you are an mmo player you pay 15.00 a month just to play that one game. i think the value is perfect. Even when psn goes down. Think about mmo's when they go down or go down for maintenance you still pay 15.00 a month for that one game. Not trying to fanboy here but ps now will be a good investment. Think about it you don't have to hook up your old console just to play a game.
