I wonder if they'll make a Ninja Gaiden Sigma 3 with all the Wii content for the PS3/360 one day.

I'd probably buy it then. Playing as Kasumi is nice, but there is no way I'm buying a WiiU just for that.

That's alright, Sigma 3 will be out for the PS3 & 360 soon enough.

I believe it was Nintendo who funded the development of 'Razor's Edge'. Which would seem to be that it'll stay exclusive to the Wii U, unless if Tecmo pays Nintendo to have it ported? But yes, I'd love Razor's Edge on PS3/Xbox 360, too. :(

I bought it when it was $39.99 as my Lamestop only had 1 copy left... This game is pure trash to anyone who enjoyed the previous NG games... my statue/figures sword was broken (common problem) as well as missing the craptastic "Online Code" (common problem). I only bought it because I owned both the NG Sigma Collector's Editions and felt like I needed to complete the trifecta... Buyer beware! :P

the regular edition is $16 on amazon...I think that's still asking too much. Personally, I'm not on the NG train as many others are. I felt there were serious gameplay flaws in both NG1 and 2 that people looked past because they were viewing the series with rose tinted glasses.

Demon's Souls / Dark Souls is a hard game...they don't deny it and I agree, it's artfully done. NG, on the other hand, is infuriating. It's not hard, it's cheap. It's Capcom fighting game end-boss cheap.

Ninja Gaiden 1 was not cheap at all, Demon/Dark souls are a different kind of difficult, with tactics and patience. NG1 is about reflexes, speed, and reaction. If you get the skills for it, it's a very rewarding game.

NG2 on the other hand is incredibly cheap, 50% skill and 50% luck with some of the unpredictable attacks you receive and enemy types. It's like they thought of ideas for "challenges", and implemented them without a second thought. It felt very rushed.

I do agree with your comment. NG1 and NG2 were created by a very capable producer and his team. The issues in NG2 was because Itagaki had some serious problems with the company he worked with at the time of NG2's development. With stress, low morale, and impending resignation, it's surprising NG2 turned out the way it is. Seriously, if I'm being treated like that in my company and know I'm going to resign, I won't even do anything until that day. ;) Remember, he resigned the day his game was released, so he actually timed his resignation so that his final project at Tecmo was finished and out of the gate. That is dedication! He could have left the company earlier and let Hayashi take over NG2 (the thought of that just makes me cringe). If he didn't have beef with Tecmo, NG2 would turned out just as perfect as NG1 and we wouldn't have that trashy game known as NG3 now. Itagaki likes to design his game based on the hardware most capable of realizing his goals, not multiplatform just to make few more bucks. It makes perfect sense because each hardware has its pluses and minuses. To make a game for both systems, design would have to be altered to meet that goal. IMO, his philosophies are proper for developers and for the fans, but I'm sure Tecmo didn't like them for financial reasons. He probably wasn't very liked by upper management people even though he was the one who saved the company from going belly up a decade or two ago.

I picked it up today for $20 after Gamestop credit I had left over.

I figure it can't be that bad for the price.

I may bite it for $20-ish just for the extra. The game itself not worth $10 on my book. I picked up $10 from Microsoft. I think i paid little too much for this game! :)

Got one, thanks for the heads up. Idk if they are going fast, but when I bought mine, the cashier said that they had 4 of them sitting in there forever, and that two other people bought one, and I was the third. Right as I was buying it, another gamestop called them wondering if they had any left in stock. So I don't know if it's my area, or if $30 was just the sweetspot for people to start buying them, so if your store only has a few left, now might be the time.

I might grab it if my local GS has it, I like figurines(I know it might be broken) and I've never been great at the NG games, so finishing one might be kinda nice haha.

I really hated the game. Really, REALLY hated this game. I'm tempted to get it just for the statue though. I really like statues(don't have the space for them tho lol). GS near my house has low stock and 1 of 2 GS near my workplace has it listed as just in stock. I don't know if I should get one now or wait for it to drop just a bit lower. I could always check it out tomorrow after I get off work.

That day is 4/2/13.

Hopefully, it won't be a $60 title. I already paid $60 for the beta version so MSRP should not be more than $40. The vanilla Ninja Gaiden on the original xbox was $50, then NGB (updated title) was retailed at $30. Hope Tecmo follows that tradition.

Have you ever played NG Sigma 2? It has an online co-op feature added back in that's pretty much similar to Sigma 2's.

Just a heads up Ninja Gaiden 3 Razors Edge is coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 on April 2nd. So you might wanna wait for that version.
