Tecmo, in a press release, announced that its first PlayStation 3 title Ninja Gaiden Sigma has a total of more or less 500,000 copies in circulation worldwide which is impressive for a game that has only been out for a couple of months.
Bringing the classic to the PlayStation 3, Ninja Gaiden Sigma is a more "complete version" of the Xbox Team Ninja title, with new moves, actions, and weapons for Hayabusa. Also, a lot of changes other changes have been implemented by Tecmo in this next-gen iteration, such as improved graphics, enemy AI, as well as the addition of a new playable character, Rachel.
The title gets its third release in Ninja Gaiden Sigma exclusively for the PlayStation 3. Sigma is essentially a fusion of the original game and Black, offering up some of Black's additions like the Mission mode, while going back to beyond the original difficulty level.
As Ryu Hayabusa you are out to seek revenge after your clan is massacred by the Vigor Empire. You play with only your wits, your deadly sword, and your ninja values. Slice down opponents in the Vigor Empire as you attempt to beat the Holy Emperor and reclaim the magic sword "Ryuken".
Coming September 6th, 2007 prepare to expand your gameplay with the collective "Survival Mode" exclusive content pack.

‹------------- cool game. played the demo. just couldn't bring myself to grab that one. I think that they could've done more in my opinion. Not trying to hate (like they were doing on HS), i'm just saying, i remember how the head guy over there kept talking about how powerful the ps3 was... but all we get is another rehashed title, not hardly demonstrating the ps3's real power at all, really. But a good title nonetheless, much success Team Ninja on a good start! Hope we see some more of their growth with the ps3 real soon.

PLayed and liked the demo, but haven't got to buy the game yet. Maybe for the fact I HATE BLOCKING. If I spend as much time blocking as attacking, I'm pretty well guaranteed not to like the game. That's one of the reasons I love God of War so much. Heavenly Swords auto-block is really nice.

Yip...I too am a proud owner of the collector's edition for this game. It was sweet when I played it on the xbox...and even sweeter now on the PS3. =)
