same thing pretty much, ps3 has ps move if your interested but i believe the PS3 version is also in 1080p just like the xbox version


Thanks for responding. The last NG game I played was NGB on the xbox and I really enjoyed it. I'm looking at the IGN review right now and they are saying that it's awful. I will read a few more reviews before deciding.

I just checked out your review and I was like WTF no decaps?!?!? Also, I keep hearing about a robotic dinosaur? If I buy it now, it will go in the backlog anyway so I will probably wait a few months and pick it up for $10. Thanks for the review!

buying a copy of NG for each platform AND brave, then trading brave and 1 copy back in immediately will make one copy of NG3 around $10 after tax, if you include the $10 cert that will be mailed to you.

Too bad this game is awful. It's the only one that Tomonobu Itagaki didn't work on. All the others were great.

Real Talk, is this game worth it or not if you really aren't into this series? I'm just looking for a fun game, but the demo did suck really bad. How much is the game related the the demo, and will I get a bang for my buck, for 20 dollars?

Will be heading in later today to pm the copies NG3, reality Fighters & Little Deviants that I bought sat. + $70. After I pm wipeout that'll complete the 12 total pm's from that receipt. Still will have 52 more days if there's a lower price though.

I'm just curious, but you're using the same original receipt for all your PMs correct? Do you get new receipts for each time you PM? Just wondering what all the paperwork for these PMs you are doing looks like - and lets say you do a PM, then later it drops again, another receipt I'm guessing? - I'm just envisioning a moving box full of receipts of which I would never be able to find anything when I needed it...

The benefit of everything being linked to your RZ account means you don't have to keep any receipt you could just print it off @ the customer kiosk in-store.
I keep my receipt in the event I need to pm/return/rebuy but I generally pm most of the items I buy on day 1. Once you do a pm you get a receipt for the adjustment of that item, if it goes on sale again you'd the need the adjusted price receipt(which can still be found by original receipts #'s) 10 items pm = 10 single item receipts. But after the 45 or 60 days you can recycle the receipt.

Pro-tip: write on the back of the receipt what's purchased @ what price then log then into a notebook(I also use notepad on my phone for things I know will go lower. I check CAG & do some web surfing everyday for all the items looking for a cheaper price. Usually takes 15 minutes but knowing what's gonna be on sale in advance means I just log what has to be matched on what day.

Lots of hate for NG3. I absolutely LOVED NG1 and NG2, and I was super disappointed with the NG3 demo and all of the reviews. But for $20, I can't really go wrong... (can I?)

Also, is this an in-store price as well? Or do I have to buy online?

Ahh, I never noticed you could print your receipts off the RZ site. I've actually never done a price match at BB, but I think its because I haven't bought many games unless they were on sale or had already dropped in price. Just so that I'm clear - PM after the fact will not affect your original purchases RZ points will it? Or is this a case where it will sometimes/won't sometimes?

Hmm... I'm wondering if Ninja Gaiden 3 would be a worthy buy for me or not. I had to watch my brother play 1 and 2 because they were way too difficult for me but 3 sounds like it's more straightforward and easy. :joystick:

Both, if it doesn't say online only all BB.com price can be pm'd in-store.

You may receive the reg. points depending on how it takes for you to get the pm but later those points will be deducted...example
you buy a $60 game & get 120 points if you pm the game 2 weeks later to $40 the RZ site should show the $20 deduction on that transaction if it doesn't the 2nd receipt with the pm will reflect a negative RZ points balance & when it posts it'll deduct the RZ points that you got on the 1st receipt. So you end up with 80 RZ points when it's all said & done.

Ahh, gotcha. Makes sense. Didn't know they would take away points from you, but, I'd rather have the $20 off over the 40 points obviously. I'm gonna have to start paying more attention to these PM possibilities and getting games sooner (since I usually wait til they drop in MSRP.) But with the $20 preorder promos and $10 in store pick up deals, I think I'm going to start getting some practice on PMs - surely most of the ones BB is offering that deal on will have a sale price within the 60 days...

I think it shows how spoiled I am now that $20 no longer pushes me into instant buy mode. Solid deal, but I'll wait until $10 or less.

I'd like to know this as well. From what I've read on GameFAQs, the answer is no, and the versions that did include the demo, some of the codes didn't even work.

AFAIK it's only the initial release copies, but I'm not sure if they have any kind of marking on the box saying if it has it or not. The game didn't sell well at all at launch, so you're chances of getting it may be higher than you think.

This. Well, partially....

$20 is a bit hard to swallow, but with a $10 coupon from the in-store pick-up deal, I don't mind biting for $10.


what's this deal?

It came out three months ago and it's never been lower.


This is a decent deal since it is the lowest I've seen it as well. I think it's good if you plan on playing it now. I still want to play 1 & 2 and $20 doesn't seem like a price we won't see from BB or another retailer down the line, esp considering how badly I see people talking about it. Even the developer said they messed up and made a "Japanese Hamburger for the West" lol. Now if it was BB's crazy $10 or $11.99 deals they do sometimes, then I'd be all over it myself.

I'm really tempted to get it at $10, but I just can't get over how terrible I've heard that it is.

For those wondering, apparently the PS3 version is better due to the 360's "horrendous screen tearing".

I bought the CE day one and both my online pass and the DOA5 demo didn't work. They were able to send me an online pass but never a DOA5 demo code. Just a fair warning to you guys who never played this, it is a terrible game. No strategy needed just button mashing and a strong thumb.

I was on the fence for $20 but would've probably picked it up for the DOA5 demo. Well, I just Googled for more info about it, and the demo was exclusive to Gamestop and Amazon unless you buy the Collector's Edition.

The interesting thing is that there are three versions of the demo: Gamestop's version has two characters, Amazon's has a different two, and the Collector Edition's has all four.

Not sure if this game got terrible reviews because its a terrible Ninja Gaiden game, or a terrible game

With my backlog of AAA games, not worth the risk yet
