The developers in Tecmo's Team Ninja
don't much care for subtlety
, not in their games and certainly not in their comments to the press. Ninja Gaiden Sigma
director, Yosuke Hayashi, is fast on his way to becoming a miniature Itagaki
, if you will) after speaking to Eurogamer
in London yesterday. When the topic of developers noting difficulty in creating games for the PlayStation 3 comes up, Hayashi suggests, "if they think it's difficult, they should get out of the ring."
Hayashi explains that in being a creator of games and in position to receive money from players, Team Ninja "shouldn't complain about the difficulty." Outspoken he may be, but the man at least implies that he'll stick to his guns as well as the PlayStation 3. "As I said, people who complain about the difficulty of creating games for PS3 should get out, right? While I'm saying that kind of thing, if I get out myself, then what I say doesn't mean anything! So, I should stay - right?"
You be the judge of that when Ninja Gaiden Sigma
gets out in a few weeks.
