Tecmo is Pissed Your Calling Ninja Gaiden Sigma A Port !

Tecmo are upset that you all think the upcoming Ninja Gaiden Sigma on PS3 is "just a port". Like, inconsolable. "It's not just a port!" their PR guy said.

n their defence, they're citing 3 new chapters, all-new textures, models, enemies and animations, 60 FPS and the ability to load the entire game onto your HDD to get it loading faster. Oh, and Rachel..

In other words a PORT. That doesn't mean it has to be bad or anything though.

I think they feel when you say port it means the game with the original engine has been moved over with improvements, which it hasn't. It would be like calling Tomb Raider Anniversary a port of Tomb Raider 1. Actually I think that is a perfect comparison. 1 generation ahead and a remake...Ninja Gaiden Sigma to Ninja Gaiden is like Tomb Raider Anniversary is to Tomb Raider 1. Let's think of it like that n then we're all happy.

As regards to loading the whole game on the HD - you must need the disc as well, otherwise you could just rent the game and copy it...

Ninja Gaiden Sigma has the same exact storyline and levels as Ninja Gaiden?

And the fact that Anniversary has the exact same story and levels as Tomb Raider 1!? you even know anything about that game? It is a remake of Tomb Raider 1 - levels and everything, but just a ps2 look on it.

I dunno GaMr I think it's just information. I don't think he realised that Tomb Raider Anniversary was a remake of Tomb Raider 1 - with the huge T-rex and everything! It's funny they've made everything in the remake 50% bigger (waterfalls, t-rex) because on testing the game everybody was like "that's quite small, i remember it being much bigger than that". They're doing everything they couldn't do in the original game like opening up the sky and adding more complex puzzles, I can't wait for either of these remakes.

Also we have to remember most of the world hasn't seen Ninja Gaiden - especially in Japan, so when they see this game I think it'll be a system seller.

3) In programming, to port (verb) is to move an application program from an operating system environment in which it was developed to another operating system environment so it can be run there. Porting implies some work, but not nearly as much as redeveloping the program in the new environment.
