I’m starting to feel as though I should have never purchased Heavenly Sword despite how much fun I had with the title. Ninja Theory is once again letting the media know how indirectly unfair the launch of the PlayStation 3 and in turn, Heavenly Sword, was for them as an exclusive developer. To be honest, all of this crying and excuse making is getting a little old.
It seems every other week, Tameem Antoniades of Ninja Theory, is complaining about their first title into this generation of gaming. The problem with his constant complaining is that it’s often to appease the 360 fanboy crowd to show them that their past relationship with Sony was rocky, so show them what 360 gamers can do by purchasing their product.
This time around, he’s complaining to Xbox World 360 about his hard life as a studio owner:
“I personally feel much more comfortable now we’re lower profile. It’s better to be the underdog so you can surpass expectations. I think all the hype surrounding PlayStation 3 wasn’t particularly enjoyable for us, and the other reason I like to underplay things is that – despite what anybody says – on a creative project, you just never know if it’s gonna work until it all comes together right at the very end.”
Get over it already. Deliver Enslaved to the masses, hope it works out, and just move on.
