more realistic boob physics?


Not just for more realistic boob physics but for the most realistic boob physics ever known to man! I can see his next game now. "Boob Jigglies: The New Breed." The game would focus around breasts under heavy duress like when fighting big breasted ninjas, skiing downhill while being chased by an avalanche, being caught in a catastrophic earthquake, or sky diving while being chased by a anthropomorphic bobble-head with a need for some motoroboatin!

I can see the possibilities now!

Itagaki should just go on to make porn. But then again I think he'd be depressed to find out that no real girls can match his imagination.

he had to have made a LOT more than 100k. 100k is close to second year programmer. Almost all leads at major studios get over 300k. He was in the upper end of leads being not only a lead designer, but also having done a bunch of successful titles as a lead. I would expect him to have made ~600k, and imo that is probably too little.

That sounds way off to me. A second year programmer earning $100k? Not on your life.

That said, as an important dev with a good history with the company, he might well earn 300k / year. But he's not a rockstar or something, he just makes games. Devs, programmers, musicians - the people who actually go to making the games we enjoy - earn the smallest salaries, as a rule, because they're replaceable. The real earner in this story is likely to be Yasuda, and other members of the board. He can actually say whatever he likes to his employees, as i'm sure his personal salary dwarfs Itagaki's, and as more of a typical salaryman he has total job security.

Anyway, sad as this is, there is one upside to the story; no more terrible DOA games. I bet the only member of the team they kept from DOA2 was the guy responsible for boobie physics. He's doing a pretty good job though.
"Backwards compatibility, as you know from PlayStation One and PlayStation 2, is a core value of what we believe we should offer. And access to the library of content people have created, bought for themselves, and accumulated over the years is necessary to create a format. PlayStation is a format meaning that it transcends many devices -- PSOne, PS2, and now PS3" - Phil Harrison, Sony, December 2006.

after 2 years you should be well on your way to being a lead programmer, and the average income for them is around 85k. I base off that.

he's one of the closest things the industry has to a rockstar. I'm sure being a high level executive the guy more than likely made more than itagaki. That being said, Itagaki is one of the most well known game developers, there's no way he didn't make a ludicrous amount of money.

Dead or Alive 5 and Ninja Gaiden 3 will continue without him. Sorry. :/ I liked Dead or Alive 2. This possibly means no more Dead or Alive Beach Volleyball extreme 3.

He is a big name in gaming, Team Ninja is possibly the only thing that Tecmo had going for them. Team Ninja is still there but the spokes person isn't. The sad part is, Japan is all about the image. We will see if him leaving will effect sales for games. Not that Ninja Gaiden ever does good in Japan lol.
