Well, for one... It isn't a video it's 4 pages of writing.

Anyways, He talks about console power, fighter jets, he says something about drinking and his hobbies, and He apologizes for not announcing anything in June.

And some stuff about Western game developers being much stronger because of the much more powerful consoles and Japanese developers not being as strong as they were with the games now as they were long ago and more metaphors about Jet fighters and Pilots.

i thought it was interesting because Itagaki was drunk.


I also thought it was funny how he said Okami didn't interest him and Ninja Gaiden never really interested the creator of Okami.

Um....Western devs aren't better because of the stronger consoles, both Eastern and Western devs use both systems, while Western do favor the 360 and Eastern favor the PS3. Actually, statistically, the PS3 is the more powerful machine, so there you go. Its the development process differences, eastern small developer teams with stale gameplay conventions and western developers with mainstream conventions and some innovation here and there. I mean, in general, we haven't seen too much innovation this year, so not even that.

And, Itagaki is a better speaker when he is drunk. For sure.

I thought it was more intersting that he handed the Ookami developer his own ass on a platter, as he never played NG, while TI tried Ookami and then commented on it. Point, Itagaki.

Really....




nothing?



That made sense, I'm sure of it.



And arch, nothing substantial bout Tecmo, lawsuits, NG2, or anything we really care about, just a drunk TI making alot of metaphors, and making more sesne than normal, and repeating himself a few times. Very Happy

WTF:lol:

What did he drink?

*Reinaction*


Q:So Itagaki what do you think the future of Team Ninja will be?

A: I think the main problem is there are no fighter jets and they have more power to create consoles due to no Fighter jets.

Q: Do you think Xbox360 is better then the ps3?

A: Look, power is one thing that the americans have over us. Seriously, look at their fighter jets.

Q: What do you think your team stands for?

A: We are like chopsticks. We just break apart and do stuff you know? Also, that being said Fighter jets decide a big portion of our chop sticks.

Q: Are you on something?

A: I believe that fighter jets play big role in that.

Q:...

A: Fighter jets?



^Like that much?
