Ninja Gaiden Sigma Devs 'Made The PS3 Smoke'

Speaking to GameInformer , Yosuke Hayashi, the director of Team Ninja's Ninja Gaiden Sigma, claims that he was able to make his batch of PlayStation 3 devkits "smoke."

He explains:

"We've made a couple of devkits smoke, but we haven't had any actually blow up yet.[laughs] As far as using the hardware to its fullest... initially we didn't think that we were going to be able to do as much as we have been able to, which is something good about the PS3, because we weren't necessarily limited to what it says on paper.

As an example,we had originally planned to only include self-shadowing during the cutscenes, but once we actually started coding, we found that we were able to have cutscenes in real time, fully implemented throughout the entire game and while you're in the middle of the action."

He also had a lot to say to people who were complaining about the Sony PS3 being too hard to develop for:

"I think all those developers who are saying, "We don't want to do a PS3 game," or "It's really difficult to do it," should shut up and make their games. If you have time to complain about it, then you should be spending your time working on getting the most from the hardware."

I like how he thinks. He takes his game, and actually uses his resources to truly make a great re-vamped next-gen game. He lets the game speak for itself. I believe he once said that releasing a game with such a small user base would be risky only if you didn't have confidence in your game. I think all of their hard work will pay off in the end because PS3 gamers won't see it as a port, but as a dedicated remake for those who may not have enjoyed it before, but now we get 60fps, self-shadowin.
360 fans should be glad to have them workin on NG2, they will make it shine.

Are reasons why NG2 is definetly going Multi-Platform. It just makes sense. They see how much raw power they can get out of the PS3 without nearing any limitations. They are going to want NG2 to outshine Sigma. They will have to do it on the PS3.

is gonna turn out..........

If Ninja Gaiden turns out to be everything that was said and shows everything that was said the PS3 can do. All the negative news of the systems limitations would be erased. This will apply to half-assed ports be Ubisoft or EA and they will be called on it.

Now, I'm not flaming here, but NG for Xbox STILL looks hot, and better than some games on PS3,Wii,360.

I can't wait to get my grubby hands on this little gem!
