Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 PS3 vs Xbox 360: Night & Day?



Another comparison of Tecmo’s oppai physics simulator Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 reveals what many are hailing as the apparent complete graphical superiority of the PS3 version to the Xbox 360 version, already scrutinised in some detail previously.

The game itself is due October.

Possibly the Greek lettering was omitted for good reason from the Xbox 360 version’s title…

    Please remember that the 360 version of the game was also made by the Team Ninja that was refused wages and bonuses that they were promised by the management. They also had to rush the game cause MGS is a collection of douchebags that want a game to meet IT'S deadline.
    Oh and both the 360 and PS3 suck because their respective manufacturers are full of shit.
    MS steals from the consumer, Sony steals from the developers.

    Now that was a harsh statement, but I agree with you Anon.

    Just to avoid confusion, "MGS" stands for "Microsoft Game Studios" here.

    Guys, Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 is a over one year port. It's OBVIOUS that Koei Tecmo made some improvement on the graphical side of the game, isn'it? Otherwise, it would have been a fucking shitty port. :P

    Omg guys you wouldn't believe what happened to me!

    I was always jealous of people who got into betas early ..but then came my chance! I bought xbax console yay!

    So then i was beta testing the xbax version (the one with multiple dvd swapping feature and censored oppai)

    some minutes passed when i began to get tired of swapping dvd's just to load the next area, then suddenly! xbax went into rrod mode oh-shi! (hidden feature) then blew up next to my curtains and caught fire!

    btw i'm posting from heaven cos i died in fire.

    Better or worse, I'm not paying full price ($59.99) for a remake! I already played it on 360. I'll maybe buy it for the PS3 when its $20 dollars.

    Damn as soon as Xbox360 fans find out what the difference is between their system and the PS3 they start coming up all kinds of excuses. Seriously face the fact that you are in the 90s baby, your still using DVDs. Everyone else is moving onto the HD era. They still can't figure out why their graphics resolution is so small: DVD 9GB, Bluray 60GB. No rocket science or college education required. You can put up to 10x the content and MORE if you double layer the bluray.

    fuck ryu, ryu is boring and gay and also has a penis

    ayane should be the main character in ninja gaiden

    also, during the game she should be raped and sodomized by evil ninja's for our pleasure, far more interesting then tit bouncing.

    Implement these changes and NG will be over 9000 times better

    Without the gore, the 360 version is still the better version. There's just something so satisfying about cutting the enemies to pieces and watching the blood spray everywhere. That feeling is completely missing from the ps3 version.

    The PS3 version has blood, there's just less of it. Go find another stupid excuse to hate on a console. Either way I don't care since I won't be getting this game.

    I hate to point this out because it will make me look like a total xbro fanboi.

    The PS3 version had a lot more development time with a finished game with months of nothing to do but polish it.

    Much like how Resident Evil 2 looked far superior on N64 then PS1.

    Some say DOA 2 hardcore looked better on PS2 then DOA2 on Dreamcast, which is true except for jaggys and resolution. However what they fail to note is DOA2 hardcore WAS released for Dreamcast in Japan where the DC version was clearly superior to the PS2. The difference? almost a year of polishing an already great game.

    Can't see how that'd make you look like a fanboy in the eyes of non-retarded human beings, tingle. You are stating facts and logically tying 'em up.

    If I had an example of a PlayStation 3 game that got a Xbox 360 port later on after the PS3 version's release, I'd point out the exact same thing.

    Maybe we'll have to wait for Cross Edge Dash, but that one already looked like a PS2 game running at high definition on the PS3.

    Surely that Xbox360 is capable and should have the same graphic as PS3 and even better.
    It's obvious that tecmo seems doesn't give a shit about xbox360 like: "You know what? we want PS3 to be superior to xbox360, so I'm sorry microsoft."
    Can't you see what Namco Bandai have promoted PS3 with their new and better Tales of Vesperia? Who would prefer to get better graphics over having more contents?

    PS3 apparently since they get better graphics and more content just for being patient and not buying the first thing shoved down their throat.

    You would realize this if you weren't a mindless consumer that can't see that one console is not better than the other. Both consoles have their advantages and disadvantages. If you were a real gamer you would appreciate both consoles but instead you are just a pathetic fanboy who can't stop and think for a minute what is most beneficial to the market.

    Have fun sucking Bill Gates' dick which is coincidentally the smartest thing to come out of your mouth.

    Being a real gamer doesn't mean you would appreciate everything. That is just a matter of opinion.
    To me, I like ps3 more than xbox but not because of the quality, it is the games that appeal me.
    There are no other games I would want to play on xbox since most of them are multiplatform like fallout 3.
    Fanboy or not, we are all here to discuss how we feel after all. =]

    team ninja started working on both versions of the game at the same freggin time. they even split up the dev. teams and pulled some help from their euro studio for the ps3 you can see they spent more time on the sony version because the sdk was more versatile and easier to work with. i have a nice pc rig, an xbox, wii, and a ps3. they all have their pros and cons. but honestly i enjoy the consistancy of consoles over p.c. with effin computers you have to constantly UPGRADE them which costs ALOT more money than buying a new console every 5-8 years(said with the understanding that the console wont shit out on you every 8-12 months{XBOX360}). technically pcs have more opportunities to be more powerful(costs lots of$$$$$$) but out of the current consoles i would have to go with the ps3 then the wii then the 360. by the way halo is wayyyyyyy wayyyy over-rated. and all you faggy fanboys are faggidy fag fag freakin flamer assed fanboys. why cant we all just join together and say that video games are the greatest instead of bitchin like a cow on the rag... my console is better than yours fuckin chumps grow th fuck up bitch ass complainers

    But what happens to the franchise? I'd heard the director of Ninja Gaiden was in trouble and the developer tanked or something.
    That would mean no more DOA or ninja gaiden for either system for a long time.
    Say it ain't so.

    its obvious the ps3 version had to be better, the 360 version is much older, the only thing i didnt like on the ps3 version, is the lack of gore, why did they take it out?

    You guys seriously wana compare two pictures of Xbox360 to many pictures from the PS3? don't make me laugh guys, the whole subject is to make PS3 look cooler, this site only shows one side, which is PS3, PS3 fanboys AND Xbox360 fanboys are stupid, I have both systems, I enjoy Xbox360 more than PS3 I admit, but that doesn't make PS3 a bad console, I like both of them, though Xbox360 has more games that I like.. Gears of war,Halo and such.

    Guys, it is clearly a win for the Station. BUT! It is a 1 year difference and I'd say the graphics on the 360 were under-achieving at the time (not because of the console, but of the developers)

    360 is superior? I dont see it.

    From those screens the 360 has better graphics processing from long distances where lots of detail is not needed or used but close up the details suck compared to the ps3 screens.

    The 360 streets look flat and bland while the ps3 streets use normal mapping and have more detail to them.

    Also the 360 renders the water horribly while the ps3 does an excellent job.

    Again, PS3 screens are on the BOTTOM and 360 are on TOP.

    Based on these screens anyone that says the 360 is better then the ps3 needs to get some fucking glasses and look again at the ground details in the second set of screen shots.

    Both images suck
    all the 360 pics look flat
    and the ps3 looks like someone had a fricken field day with the normal maps

    so they both look horrible
    anyone that says one looks better is a fan boy
    and anyone that complains that one sucks worse owns the system and wishes they had the other

    let's see.

    the programmer fails hard in bump mapping with XBOX and fails harder with unnecessary glare in PS3.

    now, where's teh PC version?

    Eh, based on those shots, I think both versions are about equal for different reasons. The 360 shot looks more realistic, whereas the PS3 shot looks more technically impressive.

    More important factors would be load times and framerate/slowdown/tearing.
