What do you guys really think about it? Voice your opinion, please. Do you think that Tomo is just a poseur and him leaving will have no impact on Ninja Gaiden franchise or do you think he really is a kick ass game maker and without him, Team Ninja is sure to fail?

Also, what are your predictions about Tomo's future - will he stick with M$, will he get back to Tecmo since its Archfiend - Yasuda - is no more, or will he play with Sony? Or maybe he will just retire from game developing?

Personally, I love the guy and I'm utterly convinced NG and DOA are great games because of him. I wish he would start a collaboration with Sony, to be honest. I never liked the fact that he workd with Americans. I could have understand it in the X1 days, since PS2 was a crap of a hardware. But now he really should do something for the PS3.

I don't really care, just hope he keeps making games, We'll see if it was really him that made those games great or just his team.

I don't know. I think everyone at Team Ninja contributes to make DOA and NG good. But TI seemed to be a big part of it. In the Ninja Gaiden II documentry on Xbox Live, Team Ninja talked about how great of a leader TI is and how everything is good because of him. TI is just an interesting person. His stye, how he acts, and what he says. I don't know what is in his future. He said at one time that he would not be making games forever. I think Team Ninja will be alright, but they haven't shown anything at TGS. I don't know what they are working on. And I remember that right before Itagaki quit, he said that they would announce something in late June or early July. And we haven't heard anything.

As for what Itagaki is doing, there was this rumor:

Quote:
Ninja developer joins Microsoft?

Tomonobu Itagaki, director of the Ninja Gaiden series, is also rumoured to be putting in an appearance. Pre-show whispering suggests that Microsoft may well have poached the renegade, whisky-slugging rock and roll games developer. Now that would be a coupů


But he didn't show. There is one more day of TGS but I figured it would have happend on Thurs/Friday (the business days). It would be interesting if he made a game with Hideo Kojima.

Itagaki said he wanted to make a world war 2 game, which I'm not too sure about. I think several of the other key Team Ninja members also left, considering Hayashi and the Fatal Frame dev took leadership of Team Ninja.

Hiroaki Matsui
Katsunori Ehara
Yoshifuru Okamoto

All three of these guys had a pretty major part in making the DOA and NG games. Hopefully they'll end up working with Itagaki at a new company.

Thanks for the link, Keylay.

I think he was really upset with Hayashi 'cause he copied his original NG for a console he really hates (PS3) and of course, he made the game without Itagaki. Wasn't this enough? Really, all people has to leave sometime, late or soon, and unfortunately, he decided to.

That he got mad because they wouldn't tell him the ancient chinese secret, or share their rice balls.

He didn't like it becuase some of those company are bias and greedy. Serveral are just in it for the money and treating thier customer badly.
My personal list Along with Sony are: Windows(MS), Fox network, archos, and EA. Well it should be longer but these few here annoys me to this day. But from someelse point of view EA aint that bad actually ( they just treat thier workers great, though).
