Who is going to be picking up this title ? Just saw the video review of it and it looks amazing as to what is beyond the demo. It received a 9.3 rating @ IGN, which I believe makes it the current highest rated PS3 game. Good stuff, I played through the demo at least 6 times and couldn't get enough of it. Releases today!

I must have played the demo over 50 times.....I'm not exaggerating either.:o

I have a quiz this week so I'll probably hold out for now. Definitely picking it up sooner or later though.

I actually saw a commercial on TV for it last night. Hopefully Sony marketing are getting their acts together.

Just picked it up :). If you want BB has a printable 10% off coupon here:

There is a misprint on the coupon it is suppose to say excludes new release DVD and Video game software but it says Video game Hardware. So the cashier gave me the 10% :)

Edit: If you choose to install it takes about 10 minutes to do it and eats about 3.3GB of HD space.

I have played the original Ninja Gaiden on the XBOX, BLACK, and now this. I can wholeheartedly say that Ninja Gaiden Sigma is the best way to experience Ninja Gaiden - one of the best, hardest games ever made and a definitive example to a modern classic.

Ninja Gaiden Black on the Xbox was brutal in the difficulty department. Hopefully the game was tamed down for the PS3. I know alot of people that walked away from Ninja Gaiden because of this.

On normal it was perfect. Didn't actually find it all that hard. Never tried the higher difficulty.

I never actually played NG:Black, I did play the normal NG, but the Sigma is about the same difficulty as I remember the regular NG was. I don't think it is impossible (well so far) and I am on chapter 8.

Oh god that's one of the reasons I get the game. I can always rely on this game to kick my ass so much harder than any other. I actually feel like I've accomplished something when I kill a boss. Hell I feel like I've accomplished something when I perfectly tear through 3 enemies.

Ninja Gaiden was a tough game. Fortunately, I went back to work last night to see that we were having a 50% off sale so I got NG for XBOX for around $4.50. Maybe this time around I can actually beat it.

so is it as difficult as the xbox version? Thats the main reason, I stopped playing after the tutorial level.

I am on chapter 14 now and I think the difficulty is about the same, but in some areas I thought the xbox (original NG not Black version) was harder. I might think this way now because when I played the original NG I was using the crappy original Xbox controller (the gigantic one) and I was never really happy with it's button response. I had a hard time doing some of the moves and the counters that I can do now almost at will.

If you can't play the demo version to the end on normal, I'd say you're probably going to stop playing the game since it gets harder than that later. I'd say right now the difficulty is somewhere between hard and very hard on the demo because of the toughness of some of the enemies and their tactics.

For everyone who thinks it's too hard, why don't you try playing on Ninja Dog Difficulty?

Hehe . . . NG is a challenge for sure. I think you just gotta get warmed up and play for a long period of time in order to achieve anything.

Yea it takes some time to get your feel for the game. I remember when I first started playing the demo...I kept doing the same moves over and over. Eventually I learned how to mix it up but I'm still far from where I want to be. My defense needs to improve.

Ninja dog difficulty? I don't remember seeing anything other difficulty besides normal, hard, very hard, and master ninja.

It's not a selectable option. You have to get your ass handed to you enough and the game will automatically ask you if you would like to try playing on Ninja Dog Difficulty.
