Gamers bombard Platinum Games with hate-filled messages over Bayonetta 2 on Wii U

"This kind of stuff is absolutely disgusting. Speaks oh-so well for gamers in general. Bayonetta 2 was announced as Wii U exclusive today, which sent a ton of gamers into a rage-filled fury. Bashing of Nintendo and Platinum hit hard, with some absolutely vile comments.", writes GoNintendo. (Bayonetta 2, Industry, Wii U)

Massive "Butt-Hurt Syndrome" epidemic!!
AsimLeonheart  +   1244d ago | Well said
The problem is that people do not want to pay $350 dollar and then $60 for playing Bayonetta. They want their favourite game sequel to be released on the console they have already invested in. People do not have the money to waste on a whole console for playing a single game. That is why they are feeling angry that they are being blackmailed into buying a console IF they want to play a sequel to their favourite game. It is not fanboyism, loyalty or being butt-hurt. Nobody would have been angry if the game was announced for all platforms including the WiiU.
kneon  +   1244d ago
But there is a simple solution, don't buy the Wii U and don't buy Bayonetta 2, that's what I'll be doing. It's not like there aren't plenty of other new games to play on whatever platform you have already.

Can you really blame Platinum games? From what I understand Sega wasn't interested in funding a sequel, so Nintendo stepped in and funded them. If you had a choice between no sequel or sequel for wiiu, wouldn't you take the deal?
BrutallyBlunt  +   1244d ago
The immaturity of gamers never ceases to amaze me. Games like Final Fantasy and Metal Gear started out on the Nintendo console. Bayonetta 2 will also likely be timed exclusive and may come to the new PS4 and new XBOX.

@for we are many

Remember RE4 on PS2? imagine what could have happened if REZero and REmake were ported as well :P


I really don't know why people love this game so much, it's because DMC sucks now? I don't like the "art-style" of the enemies, it's like DMC on massive drugs or something...

Thing is, Bayo2 was never going to happen because the game didn't sell well on PS360, so maybe Nintendo offered help to PG and Sega that now is reducing its business and focusing on a bunch of games anyway, win-win situation for Nintendo/Sega/PG and gamers that want to play this game.

It's either Bayo2 Wii-U or no Bayo2 at all, take your pick.

Metal Gear started on the MSX. Get your facts straight. The NES "ports" were spinoffs that has nothing to do with Kojima.

StanSmith  +   1244d ago

Right, be honest now. Would you have that same attitude, had PG said that Bayonetta 2 was releasing on PS4 and Xbox 720, thus also forcing you to buy a $350 + console to play it?

Nobody cried when they were forced to buy a PS3 to play MGS4, Killzone 2 or the following Ratchet and Clank games, or when they were forced to buy a 360 to play Halo 3 & 4, Forza 3 & 4.
Nobody cried when they were forced to buy a Wii to play Mario, Zelda etc
Nobody cried when we were forced to upgrade to PS3/360 to play sequels to all the other PS2/Xbox franchises.

The anger is simply coming from PS3/360 fanboys who more than likely didn't buy Bayonetta or would buy it's sequel. It is simply fanboyism and people being butt hurt.
darthv72  +   1244d ago
this is funny
sort of remind me of MGS4 and the 360 users complaining how that game should come out for 360. MGS2 was on xbox so the idea of a next gen version made sense until it was PS3 only.

Bayonetta was out on ps3/360 so the idea of bayonetta 2 coming made sense. Nope, its now wii-u exclusive. And for all we know it could be a timed exclusive.

People need to relax and take the wait and see approach. It may very well come out later or even a bayonetta 3 for ps4/720
NewMonday  +   1244d ago
Most 3rd part exclusives are timed, this one is the same

Just wait 6-12 months or buy a WiiU

I will wait
Ben_Grimm  +   1244d ago
How is it times exclusive when Sega dropped and canceled it and Nintendo picked it up and published it for themselves.

Why get mad at Platinum games? If anything be mad at Sony or MS for not doing what Nintendo did. This game was on the verge of extinction and Nintendo saved it.

People are mad because Nintendo picked up a game for their system as an exclusive? Serious, is this what we have to complain about these days.

Oh internet you so silly!
AsimLeonheart  +   1244d ago

Bro, the scenario you are presenting is a different one. When a new generation starts all of the franchises make the shift and people buy the new console to enjoy ALL of their favourite franchises in neg-gen iteration and not just one. The old consoles have become outdated and are being abandoned so their is no option but to move on. In the current scenario the PS360 are still current-gen with comparable hardware performance to the WiiU. All the of the franchises still exist on them with multiplatform games existing among the three consoles. Moreover, Bayonetta was never released on the Wii and suddenly making the game exclusive to the WiiU is very shocking for the fans. I will give you an example: What if the next flagship game in the Legend of Zelda series suddenly was announced for PS360 while leaving out the Nintendo console? Does'nt that sounds outrageous to you? It is the same case with Bayonetta.
StanSmith  +   1244d ago

Yes it does sound outrageous, simply because it would never happen as Nintendo owns the IP.

What's all this fud that WiiU is comparable to PS3/360? We don't even know the CPU clockspeeds, or what the exact GPU is inside the WiiU. So how can gamers be outrage over Bayonetta? Perhaps Bayonetta is a next gen game that the PS3/360 are to weak to run due to the less ram available? If PG had released this on all platforms, people would have still accused them of dumbing down the PS3/360 versions.

You see this is my point, they're damned it they did release it and they are damned if they didn't. They can't win no matter what they did. People are rushing to attack PGs without any knowledge of the reason why they made Bayonetta WiiU exclusive. There is simply no excuse for it.
Darrius Cole  +   1244d ago

Nobody cried when they were forced to buy a PS3 in order to play MGS4??????

Where have you been, there was much weeping and gnashing of teeth over MGS4 being exclusive. There was a "MGS4 to 360" rumor every month for 3 straight years. They cried to high heavens. Kojima-sama just did not hear their pleas.

For the One million-th time. If your game kills the enemy with a sword, knife, or hack-n-slash action, your game will sell more on PS3. If your games kills the enemy with a gun or military action, then your game will sell more on X360.

Bayonetta was doomed from the beginning. It was mistakenly designed as an Xbox 360 exclusive, but they didn't sell it to Microsoft as an exclusive; it was down-hill ever since.

It was hack-n-slash game, designed to appeal to people who liked Devil May Cry, that was broken and unplayable on PS3, where all the DMC fans are. On top of that, they refused to cash in on the 360 fanboyism by making it 360 exclusive. The broken, PS3 version still sold more copies than the immaculate, X360 version. Which means that over half the people who bought it got a game that was literally unplayable. Bayonetta crapped on the only market it had. I'm not surprised that Sega cancelled it, they probably saw no place to go with it.

Nintendo saved Bayonetta 2. But Bayonetta has no fans on Nintendo platforms. But maybe the Nintendo faithful will like it.

Seriously this is just annoying/amazingly pathetic. All these people putting Platinum on blast, bitching and moaning in general need to grow up. Platinum did not have a choice, Sega stopped funding so Nintendo stepped in. If it wasn't for them Bayonetta 2 would not be coming out AT ALL, this is what you morons need to understand. Wouldn't you at least want the option to play it rather than not at all? If you fanboys would just look past the brand for once and stop being so closed minded you might actually have the opportunity to enjoy this game, but sadly you won't do that, your too thick headed. So many people these days are uneducated simpletons that constantly run their mouths spewing garbage like they actually know something. I am greatly discouraged to be apart of this generation of mass stupidity. This goes for everything in general not just this Bayonetta incident.

BrutallyBlunt  +   1244d ago

The fact is Metal Gear started on another platform and was designed by Hideo Kojima in 1987, long before Sony entered into game consoles. What about Final Fantasy?

Unless Platinum announced they were going to make Bayonetta 2 long ago and promised it would continue on the same system then what's there to complain about? This strategy of getting 3rd partry publishers to offer exclusive games, whether it be timed or full exclusive games, has been going on for a long long time. It's about time Nintendo started getting serious about getting consumers interested in 3rd party content.
pixelsword  +   1245d ago
Whares ya' exclusives now?

Just kidding; that's a little unfair to people who made the game great, now will have to invest into another console. BUT all of those people who said "I don't play console loyalty, just games" will now have a chance to prove it by buying a Wii U if they loved Bayonetta.

This was 360 exclusive then ported to the PS3, so this basically screws a lot of people who want to remain loyal to the other two consoles.

Gamers piss me off sometimes. What a bunch of whiny brats. Does the sequel coming to the Wii-U somehow take away the fun you had with the first title? Play the game and enjoy it. If you want to play the second, suck it up and buy the console it's on. It's not rocket science. Played it on the 360 and PS3 and now mad because you're little cryin' head can't play the sequel. Too bloody bad. No one owes you anything. The sooner you realise that fact the sooner you can start living your life. The entitlement generation indeed. Life's gonna kick these kids so squarely in the balls one day they won't have a clue what the hell happened. And then they can take they're little "Me, me, me" attitude to the net and waste their breath crying about it because guess what? No one cares what you think you're owed.

i completely understand people being mad, this isnt just an exclusive going multiplat its a multiplat going exclusive and not even exclusive for either platforms it was originally on. Good thing i dont care about this game if it was like vanquish 2 i would be mad aswell. These people dont want to go out and spend over 400 dollars for a system for only 1 game than it would collect dust especially when they should be able to play on the one they already have

But I though bayo sold more on ps3, so that mean there are more bayo fan on ps3 no? So doesn't that mean there are higher chance that these outrage come from PS crowd? U didn'tt see the outrage that occur for GTA4, FF13, or DMC4 and that just for going multiplatform, not to mention exclusive like this case. It seems the cry baby syndrome or self entitlement mentality r more prominent on ps crowd herE, so why pointing finger at ms crowd only?
But this entitlement mentality has got to go. Nobody owe u anything. people don't go into business just to cater to your individual needs. It seems you guys forget the reason why u eve buy the console in the first place.

Reactions like this make me just hang my head in shame. To see the gaming community behave with such a level of immaturity is just disheartening. There are ways to let Platinum Games know that you want this game for PS3/360 without sounding like whiny 6 year old denied of their toys and candy. How does this sound:

"Hey Platinum, I'm happy there is gonna be a Bayonetta 2, but I own a PS3 and 360 and don't wish to purchase a Wii U right now. Is there a chance that this game would come to those platforms in the future because I'd like the option to purchase it for one of those systems. Thanks"

Now isn't that better than:


Please note that these are the same "mature" gamers who want this game to come so badly to their system. Want to prove that you are indeed mature? Then act like a damn adult.

To be fair, what's going to get media attention, a politely phrased request letter, or a bunch of passionate fans getting angry? I know which message would come across more clearly to me if I were looking at comments on my project. People are angry. The sample letter you provided looks fake as they come, because nobody angry speaks like that. "I'm happy there is going to be a Bayonetta 2..." no, they're not happy. There is a fine line between diplomacy and complete dishonesty. Why should they bother trying to sugar coat their sentiment to the point of bullshit? It's called hate-mail for a reason.

Honestly, I'm so sick of seeing people on gaming sites get on some kind of moral high-horse on basis of someone else's grammar or manners when they're making the simplest of statements. Let me ask you this, if the people in those comments are big babies who don't deserve to have their opinions acknowledged, then what do you call the people who sit around here judging others all day? Mature and dignified? Fuck off.

And the fact that you actually think these it's reasonable to threaten people over a video game is beyond me. I rather be a "mature and dignified" on my "moral high-horse" than another shitposting asshole on the internet. You tell me to fuck off, well all I have to say to you is GROW UP.

People are idiots only by doing this kind of things such as boycotting is stupid your just going to hurt the developers and lose money, think their going to be able to continue making games if the game doesn't sell.

Limiting themselves on the PS3/360? So you are saying this game will look better the MGS:GZ? Cause I doubt it.

Platinum got a publisher on a canned game, this has nothing to do with limited by hardware. It was to be expected that it would cause a division in the fans, some people can't afford to spend $300 on a system.

But alas, they needed something, cause Sega was not going to publish it, so it is much like MGR, without Plat, we would not be getting the game.

However, if the game sells well, we might see it ported to the other systems later. Much like NG with the Sigma games.

Most likely not... Apparently, Nintendo is the publisher, so we will not be seeing it on other systems. Sega chose not to publish the sequel, Nintendo stepped in. Although I suppose it is possible that we could see it come out as "Bayonetta Sigma" type of thing (as you pointed out in regard to Ninja Gaiden), it is probably not going to happen. But, who the hell knows. :)

DaThreats made a good point. Bayonetta 2 on the Wii-U may quell the "it is as powerful as PS3/360" rumors everybody is so hell bent believing despite the evidence to the contrary. The real reason why people are so upset because it is the one release game that would make people consider the Wii-U to be a contender for "next-gen".

As DaThreats mentioned, it has already a superior GPU with 1GB RAM, this is a far cry that puts this console over the edge among the PS3/360 allowing for more visual effects/cues that the current-gen console are unable to replicate in a solid 60fps.

The Nintendo Wii U entertainment system is a very deserving platform for the future of the Bayonetta establishment. With said title being exclusive, Platinum Games will be able to directly harness the next gen graphical and technical capability of the Nintendo Wii U entertainment system tablet control functions. Bayonetta now has an opportunity to be experienced in never before seen unique ways not quite possible on current gen platforms.

I am happy for Nintendo and Platinum games for this two player co-op joint effort in securing the future of the greatest hack and slash adventure franchise I have ever laid eyes on. More power to them. Exclusively on the Nintendo Wii U entertainment system.

Who really cares? Why explode over a single game that wasn't even as good as DMC3? People are making this into such a big deal. Besides the combat Bayonetta wasn't even that good a game.And no I am not saying that because I am butt hurt. I have been saying that since the first Bayonetta came out. So stop all the rage and crying.There are hundreds of games out there that are better then Bayonetta. Are you going to go on about it all the time just because Nintendo decided to publish something that was cancelled in the first place? There isn't even any guarantee that this Bayonetta will be even better then the first one and you are already crying over it? Please stop embarrassing yourselves.

You don't see me crying over Rayman because I liked the first one and it looks like it's only going to be on the Wii U. By the time the rest of the next gen systems come out we will all have our own next gen exclusives to gloat and boast about so why squabble over Bayonetta out of all things? I swear gamers cry at the drop of a hat these days.You act as if Nintendo snagged the greatest game in the universe or something with a hundred million fanbase.

I dont like Bayonetta, only played it for a handful of minutes to know it isnt my kind of game (too girlie) but on the other hand i can understand why some gamers are pissed off, i would be, if it was a game i cared about

I was going to boycott the new Hitman game because they dropped David Bateson (voice actor), i was livid man, and i made sure people knew that, maybe thats why they hired him again.....because gamers said "hay, this isnt right"

Kinda agree they make short mediocre/decent games. When Bayonetta is the best you did as company that made dmc,Okami and viewtiful joe then you aint doing it right.

People are acting like it was the best game of this gen when it bombed in sales and got overrated by reviewers.

See considering I've never played Bayonetta, I shouldn't be annoyed.

But I slightly am.

I know its harnessing "next gen" but its like: couldn't the game go on next gen PS/Xbox IF they are revealed next year too? Cause thats how they're acting.

Taking a game born on PS3/Xbox 360 and then having the sequel on a completely different platform only is... well mixed feelings :/

Platinum's choice to make Bayonetta 2 exclusive to the Wii U is nonsensical. Why would you forsake an install base of over 120 million...Maybe Sega wasn't interested in publishing it due to their financial issues at the moment?
vickers500  +   1245d ago
I read something today that said Bayonetta 2 was cancelled because of poor sales or something like that, then Nintendo swooped in and picked it up so they could publish it.

If true, then Bayonetta 2 apparently wouldn't even exist without Nintendo.
matgrowcott  +   1245d ago
There's a difference between 120 million and a potential 120 million. Bayonetta didn't sell a fantastic amount (2 million?). Decent enough, but not enough to inform the people at the Guinness World Records.

On the other hand, being published by Nintendo on a Nintendo console at the beginning of its lifespan (during which core gamers will be desperate for core experiences) is likely to garner much more interest from people. On PS3/360 it'd sell to people who loved Bayonetta and probably not many others, especially when you consider the competition (including Revengeance, Platinum's own game). On Wii U it has a much better chance of finding a new group of people, while also being readily available to the old fans who invest in the Wii U.
Reaper9937  +   1244d ago
It all depends if the hardcore crowd buys into Nintendo's new console, if not Bayonetta 2 will have pretty low sales.

Anyway I'm just glad it's being made, even though it's not on my console of choice, will pick it up for Wii U day one.
Sarcasm  +   1244d ago
Not just that, but didn't the PS3 version look and run crappy compared to the 360 version? So most people who were remotely interested got the 360 version which practically limited the install base anyway. That and the 360 is dead in Japan.

Nonetheless, they still should have released it on all 3 current gen consoles. 360/PS3/Wii U.

I personally never liked the crazy amount of cheese that game had anyway despite all the good reviews on the combat etc.
ABizzel1  +   1244d ago

Actually the PS3 versions outsold the 360 version, even being a bad port. These kind of games just sell better on PS.

Ninja Gaiden

and many others, just sell better on PS, because that's their audience.
FredEffinChopin  +   1244d ago
I think it seems to make no sense, but when the smoke clears, I doubt this will actually be a Wii-U exclusive. I'd wager that this is like many other early game announcements, where the word exclusivity is thrown around, and later on we find out that it really meant *timed* exclusivity. This will probably be on all 3 next gen platforms.
Huarle  +   1245d ago
Why are they bashing Platinum though? Don't they get that Nintendo "bought" this exclusive?

Platinum wanted to make a sequel and someone stepped up to finance it. And instead of a third party like Sega it happened to be Nintendo.
PopRocks359  +   1244d ago
Because people are uninformed morons who don't know the first thing about "doing their homework" before angrily mouthing off.

All of those angry fans shouldn't be mad at Platinum games, they should be mad at SEGA because they didn't want the series anymore. Hell look at what they did to Anarchy Reigns. If it weren't for Nintendo this game probably would have never seen the light of day.
r21  +   1245d ago
Understandable why gamers are raging. If they're going to want to play the sequel to one of their favorite hack and slash games, they're going to have to shell out $300 above to play this once multiplatform game.
matgrowcott  +   1245d ago
No, not understandable at all. They paid for a single game and, presumably, they feel they got their money's worth because they were apparently previously excited for the sequel.

If this had been announced as a 360 exclusive, or a PS3 exclusive, this wouldn't have been a problem. Hell, if it had been announced as a multi-plat game but on PS4/720, this wouldn't have been a problem. This is only a problem because the little brats complaining are "too cool" to buy a Wii U and now feel they should hold their breath until they get their own way.
kane_1371  +   1244d ago
your comment is so hateful!
Have you been crying during the entire reign of Wii?
you make no sense, if it was a PS3 exclusive Xbox side would be outrageous, if it was a Xbox exclusive ps3 side would be outrageous, the Nintendo side has no right to be outrageous over a game they never got, because their system was inferior!

and of course people wouldn't be mad if it was Multi plat on PS3, X360 or Ps4 and nextbox or pc and whatever else!
That is the whole point!!!

You are just a fanboy in rejoice which won't last for long, because WiiU is already outdated, the same scenario will be played in a couple of years.

I'm my self going to pick up a WiiU, so i'm not against Nintendo or Platinum Games nor Sega because I love them all, but I'm at the same time disappointed that I won't play it on my Playstation or Xbox or whatever other system I would rather play this on!
matgrowcott  +   1244d ago

See, this is the bloody problem. Idiots like this who read things that aren't there and get on their high horse despite knowing absolutely nothing about the other person. How is my comment at all fanboyish? It's the opposite, in fact.

Of course the Xbox side would complain if it had been announced as a PS3 exclusive and vice versa. Would they take to twitter and threaten to hurt themselves and people on the development staff over it? Some of them would, most wouldn't Most would take it as a slight annoyance at best, it's happened more than once this gen.

But you've hit the nail on the head, although given by the way you write I'm guessing you were aiming at something else.

"and of course people wouldn't be mad if it was Multi plat on PS3, X360 or Ps4 and nextbox or pc and whatever else!"

So people wouldn't be mad if it was playable only on the next-gen PlayStation/Xbox consoles? Despite the fact they'd need to pay the price of a console to get it?

So what's the difference, exactly, between that situation and this, except that you'd have to buy a Wii U instead of a PS4/720?

Who has taken anything away? They've never bought the sequel and had it taken away and nobody is stopping them from buying the sequel. It'll be fully available on a console that will be in decent supply. More than that, nothing is taken away from the original game.

At the end of the day, nobody would have a sequel if not for Nintendo and, if you choose not to buy a Wii U, you STILL won't have a sequel. So what exactly is the problem here?

Oh, right: idiots.

You sound just as hateful and babyish as those commenters in your condemnation of their behavior, in all of your comments here. Take a bow, you get the Hypocrite of the Day award.
Hicken  +   1244d ago
It's completely understandable. They paid for a single game they enjoyed, and eagerly awaited a sequel, which is entirely possible on whatever system they played the original on.

Now, if they want to play the sequel, they will have to buy a brand new system which may not have ANYTHING else they'd want to play on it. That's a far bigger difference than if it had gone exclusive on a current gen console: at least then, there are massive libraries for each of the systems that can help justify a purchase. The Wii U just won't be able to say the same thing.

It's not the same as a multiplat going exclusive, like a lot of people are wanting to say. That situation can have its own drawbacks(see FF XIII), but at least the original fanbase still gets to play the game.

A multiplat going exclusive completely shuts out the fans of one or more systems. It's natural for those fans to be upset. They're getting mad at the wrong people, though.


Sega screwed everything up. They had somebody else develop the PS3 version of the game, causing it to suck quite a bit(and even went as far as saying they weren't going to patch it at one point, if I remember correctly), and even decided to drop the sequel.

Well, there's nothing that can really be done, unless Nintendo is feeling generous, but to buy a Wii U. Still, I'm waiting to see more games that tickle my fancy.
KrebStar  +   1245d ago
I'm someone who loved Bayonetta, can't wait to play 2, and has no intention of purchasing a Wii U until at least year after launch.

That being said, I am honestly really glad to see Nintendo making an effort here to pull in good third party exclusives. Not to downplay the Wii, but I would love to see Nintendo get back in the game and give Sony and Microsoft some real competition.

(Yes, I am aware that the Wii sold like 99 cent golden hot cakes, but you know what I mean.)

Ya know hell with these fan-boys & trolls starting this hate campaign. Honestly, these are the same people that for years bi+ch and complain Nintendo has no "CORE IP's" and that Nintendo never does anything to get exclusives for their console. They complained months ago there was no reason to upgrade to Wii-U because they can get the same experiences on current gen systems. Well now, guess what? You can't get Bayonetta 2 on current gen systems!!!! Also, you cant get Rayman Legends, Zombie-U, Dragon Quest 10, Monster Hunter Tri United, Wonderful 101, Toki Tori 2 etc.

Nintendo went on a mission to get the core gamer's back by securing titles like these for "LAUNCH WINDOW". And what is the response, backlash from angry X-bots or Sony Drones. Nintendo did this for you. They are trying to win you guys back, and yet you hate them and Platinum games for making such a move. This proves there is nothing Nintendo can do to win you over. If they don't bring core games (AKA Wii)...they bi+ch,if they do bring core games(Wii-U)...they still bi+ch. Nintendo can't win and its gamer's like this that are destroying gaming as a whole. If they have the games you want guess what, BUY THE SYSTEM !!!! That's the whole point, you buy a console for the games you want. You don't complain that they have games you want. This is by far the worst fanboyism I have ever seen in gaming.

The last time Nintendo got this kind of crap is when Monster Hunter Tri jumped ship from PS3 to Wii....and I thought that was bad, but this, this is just pathetic.

ado908  +   1244d ago

I'm all for nintendo gaining hardcore fans and games but not this way. People argued that they want more fresh exclusive IP's not to steal a sequel from 2 million users who supported the first game. Economy is tough these days man and honestly not everyone can be affording a new console to play 1 sequel they enjoyed. And it's kind of a stab to the back to the people who supported the first one and gave platinumgames the recognition they need.

Nintendo needs new IP's to be winning people over to their console not sequels that have been made already on different platforms. These aren't fanboys raging about this but fans of the game and honestly I would be too if I was really hooked onto this game.

Imagine if Gears of war 4 a third party exclusive was being announced only for the PS3. Would the 360 fanboys get ticked off? Of course they will because they support epic. Or finally an announcement of Heavenly sword 2 came out and it was being released exclusively to the 360, would the PS3 fanbase get mad? Of course they will. The point I'm trying to make is Platinum games made the wrong move and they pissed off their fanbase now. Their reputation went down low because of this.

I really want the Wii U to succeed I really do I just feel like they should give us more of their "own" to be winning fans over. Give us a new experience. People are getting tired of zelda and mario. If they had released more IP's similar to the last of us or the WIi zombie U then it would make fans and other platform owners more happy to own the system.

Edit: I read that this game was cancelled by Sega a while ago. And only nintendo took the initiative the bring the game back. I disregard everything I said lol this is nice of nintendo tbh.

CaptainN ur comment was spot on. You might dislike the Wii, but hating Nintendo as a company after everything they did for the gaming industry is just a blinded, irrational fanboyism.

If u want to be mad at someone, be mad at SEGA. Nintendo wants consumers and you want the game. If you want the game THAT bad, buy the console. So far this is the only game that made me even consider getting a wiiU, so they did something right. Gaming is an business ppl. Get over it.
Acquiescence  +   1244d ago
I bought Bayonetta day one for the 360...
Limited Edition too. Hated it; honest to goodness one of the worst gaming experiences I've had this gen. The story/writing/characters were excruciating, the art direction an ugly mish-mash of different styles that didn't coalesce and gameplay that quickly became repetitive, with a emphasis on battles that drew on far too long.

The Wii U can have the sequel! It just gives me less incentive to buy the console.
dragonrage00  +   1244d ago
Everyone can have their opinins, but honestly, u dont buy a game like bayonetta expecting a great storyline and gameplay variety. U can spot all of those problems just by watching the trailers. Bayonetta is by design an hack and slash game that is the best at...well...hacking and slashing. Besides, how is an extra game less incentive to buy an console? That just doesnt make sense.
HappyWithOneBubble  +   1244d ago

If anything these idiots should blame their own xbox360 community do you remember when this game was released the superior xbox version Bayonetta was rubbed in ps3 owners faces from the media and fanboys and guess what it still sold horrible on xbox360 compared to the messy ps3 version if any community deserves to be upset a bit it's the ps3 owners who still supported their crappy port game with over a million sales even though it was obvious platinum didn't care at that time for the ps3 version. Also Sega cancelled it most likely due to unacceptable low launch sales I remember this game dropped to the bargain bin fast nobody was buying it at full price most of those sales came from when the game was $20 not $60, so now you have Microsoft who probably didn't want to fund it as an exclusive based on it's low sales on 360 and Sony has
God Of War Ascension coming so why fund at best a 1 million seller, hence Nintendo swoops in to pad it's library. Makes perfect sense to me.
