Interview with the director of Ninja Gaiden Sigma. Includes detials on characters, levels, and graphics.
I thought it was interesting that Yohsuke Hayashi thinks 720p is the best resolution to use in terms of balancing graphics and performance. I hadn't thought about it like that. Regardless, I'm looking forward to this game.
from a 3rd party developer that isn't dissing a system. It's a breath of fresh air. The screens do look a lot better then the TGS shots. Should be a good game.
I played this game to the teeth on the XBOX! Best action game ever! Better than DMC! Better than God of War! And better than Prince of Persia!!! Enjoy it Sony boys!!! But I bet you once Ninja Gaiden 2 comes exclusive to the 360, you guys will be buying one ;)
No DMC 3 is better by far!
Better than DMC3, GoW and PoP???? Are you on drugs or something?
Ninja Gaiden Black: 93.9% God of War: 93.2% Devil May Cry: 92.2% Devil May Cry 2: 72.3% Devil May Cry 3: 87.8% Prince of Persia: 91.6% Prince of Persia 2: 86.3% Prince of Persia 3: 85. 3% Ninja Gaiden takes it by an inch!!! God of War is a good game! DMC went downhill after part 1. Prince of Persia is also a good game! Stop being such a fanboy you sony duds! Everybody knows that Ninja Gaiden is the best action game thier is.
Is one of the most action packed fun games i have ever played, however Ninja Gaiden was really great, but not as action packed as DMc 3, not by a long shot!
Ninja Gaiden received better ratings. Its the only good action game on the original XBOX!!!! FANATIC!!!. Dont compare it to God of War, its the best the genre has to offer. Also DMC and DMC3 are better games overall. Onimusha 3 and Dawn of Dreams are better games. I have all these games and NG is amazing, the only thing that kept me from enjoying it better was its extremely high dificulty. Sometimes it really tired my hands. As far as the PS3 version Im still wanting something that make me buying it AGAIN. FANATICS...
A very good read.
Yohsuke Hayashi was straight to the point with his answers. He also has a great sense of humor. One part I loved about the interview was when 1up asked, "Is there any concern that by the time the game ships that Sony still won't have sold enough units to make this a financially worthwhile venture?" His response to that was "A lot of developers use the excuse, "Oh, well the hardware doesn't have enough units out there so we're not going to develop for it." In our case we think, "Obviously someone has it." So we think you should make a game good enough to get everyone who owns that hardware to buy it. That's the ideal goal, right?" I feel all game makers should have that type of attitude about us the gamers.
This game is looking really really nice! I had the game for xbox and must say those pics alone would make me purchase the game all over again! Action wise this game in my opinion tore up DMC3 and GOW, but story wise it could not compete but still offered a decent one! So is this multimapping going to be the new buzz word for PS3 and maybe 360 kind of like Normal mapping was for xbox in games like Riddick and Doom3? Sounds interesting though and makes you wonder that maybe if done right even if the PS3 cant perform better than 360 graphically then this trick might actually make it's game look on par or even better than alot of 360 titles! Hopefully this game will sell some systems but for a game to look this good and only be 35% complete is just really damn impressive! By the time this is released the PS3 should be a little cheaper if not alot and I may just get one for this game and Heavenly Sword alone! Also Ninja Gaiden 2 for 360 probably won't even be announced until after this game is released on PS3 or after DOA5 which was announced not to long ago for 360! Anyways i'm just glad to be a gamer and will support both Sony and MS because they have both made excellent console's that will keep me stuck to my tv for along time! It's sucks that some people deny a great game on either console when they know dam well it's looking hot! I will never support the Wii because I think it's bad news for us Hardcore Gamers and don't really care if any of you guy's disagree with me!
If you own a PS3, you owe it to yourself to get this game. I'll echo what everyone else has said in that the XBox version was a great gaming experience. Now THIS is a reason to get a PS3!
Even to this day, i still love to play NGB on my 360. in my opion, one of the best if not the Best action game ever made.I would put Ninja Gaiden Black graphics up against any of sonys and 360 launch titles . this game has been my standerd for next gen games since day one. if it don't look better that NGB for the xbox, i will not support it! its truly amazing what team ninja was able to do with NGB on the regular xbox, and it even looks better on the 360,countiues to blow me away evey time i play. i just Know this new ver. for sonys ps3 is gonna take it to a hole new level. new hardware, more storage capacity...my exeptations are very high, same goes for NG2 for 360!!!!! no excuses. these two games will be amongst the best games ever made! can't wait
Remember guys its not the real deal with sigma. The Master Ninja himself is not making this game,Tomonobu Itagaki developed the first ninja gaiden this is one of his subordinates asking him if he could make the game for ps3 which he did and it seems good , but remember its not the real developer making this game .:) Hopefully it lives up to the ninja gaiden name at least and for a while I never knew ryu was hayabusa in doa haha took me a while to figure out that one lol , Hopefully as well its as hard as gaiden was and not watered down.Plus I like how you say gaiden was the only good action game on xbox, )always fighting about something or other lol(
They choose PS3 becuase it gives the more poerfull of game for them. ^^"
fanboy shut up. you have no idea why they put Ninja Gaiden 1.2 on the PS3. Most likely because they want to get more fans for the series.
I really enjoyed NG on XBOX. It's great that it is not a simple port. I guess the modells, textures and animations will be exactly the same on NG2 / 360 for some characters because now they are HD-quality and designing always costs money.
