dunno why they wouldn't just develop the ps3 and 360 versions simultaneously. and if this is true, it probably means that ng2 is a ways off. :/

Nooooooooooooooo. PS3 can keep that Sigma shit if it means that NG2 comes sooner. Raaarrgh.

I've always thought this forum had an odd policy, in that you have to give the mods permission to lock your useless threads. If you forget to add that "Lock if Old" line in there, then it's impossible for a mod to lock your thread! They just can't do it. They're powerless to lock your thread, even if you're the 15th person to post the new VGCats comic. It just has to stay open...forever!

Main staff of Team Ninja is working on NG2. NGS is a side project.

Maybe I'm in the minority but I don't have any ****ing clue what the point of this game is. How many times can you go to the well? Just make NG2 already (or if they are as stated above, make something else as a "side project")

i dunno how many times theyre gonna remake it either but i guess it could help them nail the ng2 formula that much better being on a new platform and whatnot

Tecmo sure is intent on whoring out this game for all it's worth, aren't they.

I don't know who I'm kidding...I'll probably buy it AGAIN, but oh well. Could've picked a worse game to squeeze.

The point? To collect a fat check while also testing the market for NG on Playstation platforms. Can it sell well when going against Heavenly Sword, Devil May Cry, etc.? If it can it opens new doors for Tecmo/Team Ninja in regards to the franchise's sales potential. If it sells well they can go cross platform with NG2 and try for GTA level sales, if not there's really no point heavily investing in NG2 on PS3 when the console is already oversaturated with quaity action games, many of which have established brand loyalty (DMC, God of War).

“Ninja Gaiden sigma” not for Xbox 360 03.10.2006


Now it is official: The Actiontitel Ninja Gaiden sigma, which was announced for the first time on the Tokyo of this year Game show by Tecmo, remains PS3-Exklusiv. The Famitsu Xbox 360 reports. During the new development it is to only act around a revised and improved version of “Ninja Gaiden”, which appeared at that time for the Xbox.

Tomonobu Itagaki of Tecmo wants to put the development focus in the future in addition, further on the Xbox 360.

Wait what the hell guys? We're talking about a story which was originally in German, translated to Japanese, and then we're translating that into English? The Xboxfront article [this Japanese site is reporting on] is pretty explicit that Sigma is not coming out on 360.
 
#36
I imagine NG2 will be released late 2008.
NG:S could be put on 360 as a filler in 2007 but I kind of think it's unlikely to see NG:S on 360.

Perhaps not in this thread but check the NGS TGS thread. There's like 20 of em crying over this game. I just dont get it. What sane person buys the same game 3 times over.

It's that good. I'm getting it again...er...again. A bit already used to it with Metal Gear Solid, another series I adore.
