Hating On Platinum Games Over Bayonetta 2′s WiiU Exclusivity? You’re An Idiot

With some fans taking heated aim at developer Platinum Games over the news that Bayonetta 2 will be released exclusively for the WiiU, Mark Butler argues that such hateful attacks are not just ludicrous generally – but completely nonsensical in this case. (Bayonetta 2, Culture, Nintendo, PlatinumGames, Wii U)

I didnt hate on konami for MGS4 being exclusive to PS3. I ended up getting a PS3 and the game and love it. Im getting a wii-u regardless of this game.

Its not the first time a game has been canceled and bumped up to the next platform. I think soul calibur was such a game in development for PS1 but then it got bumped up to the DC as a launch title.

dont recall people being up in arms over that.

First off Bayonetta didn't sale 1 million units on PS360 combined, it sold nearly 1 million units on each console (PS3 a bit more, 360 a bit less). The Game released in Japan in October 2009 and Worldwide January 2010, and by February 2010 the game had already sold over 1,000,000 units. More than two years later and the game should have pushed closer to the 2 million mark (currently sits a 1.88M on vgchartz).

That being said those people have every right to be upset, but as you said at the fact of it being exclusive to the Wii U, not at Platinum (MS nor Sony stepped in unless they weren't given a chance), or Nintendo who saved a great game.

Sending death threats to the developer does nothing to help your cause, and it's just plain ignorant. They have the right to be upset, angry, and even pissed, but sending death threats is taking it to far.

After the initial shock of finding out Bayonetta 2 is exclusive to Wii U and being published by Nintendo, I found it really funny. Bayonetta fans have been waiting for an announcement of Bayonetta 2, then it happens, and it's exclusive to a new console. I don't remember that ever happening before, I just thought it was funny as hell. I don't see Bayonetta 2 as a system seller, but if Nintendo gets enough Bayonetta 2 type exclusives, they could culminate into selling some systems. I pre-orered my Wii U because of Nintendo exclusives like Zelda and Metroid, but I won't be upset with more Bayonettas and other similar exclusives.

Nintendo is also publishing Ninja Gaiden 3. Does that mean the FBI will raid my house and take my PS3 copy of the game?

Mass Effect was published by Microsoft on the Xbox and EA on the PC.

I would not be surprised at all to see an "extended" version of Bayonetta releasing with the next gen Xbox and Playstation.

PS: I still think the game is overrated.

this is just stupid. we don't hate on sony or microsoft for having exclusive games. get over it.
Septic  +   1245d ago
Wait, let me get this straight
People are hating on the Wii U exclusivity even though it was Nintendo that basically rescued the franchise?

I don't get it....would people prefer that the game never came out at all as opposed to being released albeit exclusive to a console?

Some people need to stop and think before spilling their corn flakes.

Funny how bayonetta is suddenly getting attention.
It's like people just want to find stupid reasons to hate on Nintendo!? I don't like them, but come on!! You haters are just being stupid now.
It's an exclusive, so if you like the first game, it only means that you should buy a wiiu. End of story.

nah i don't hate on nintendo for saving this franchise good for them.

personally i hated the game when i played it on 360 to me its extremely overrated with the worst story, characters, battle music. the combat although good was just a button masher imo.

this being exclusive to wii u wouldn't make me spend 350 just for this one game. i plan on buying the system 6mths to a year from launch when i see a good amount of games i want to play. not just ports of old games i already beat.
Hisiru  +   1244d ago
This time nintendo is INVESTING MONEY in the production of the game. I am sorry to say you that but the game was announced as an exclusive, the team already confirmed Nintendo will help them make the franchise even better.

You won't see this game on another platform, it's a deep collaboration between Nintendo and Platinum Games. Deal with it and stop making excuses.

It's funny that people is always saying "I have no reason to buy a WiiU" and when they get more reasons they give more excuses.

I don't like it because I see Nintendo Censor-Nerfing Bayonetta and Platinum Games.
Bayonetta has a lots of asses flopping around gratuitously on screen, and I don't believe for a second that Nintendo is going to be able to handle this on their KID & FAMILIY friendly console(s).

I mean, Nintendo couldn't even handle THE BINDING OF ISAAC.

I hate censorship, and this has always been Nintendo's M.O.
For this reason, Bayonetta does not belong on the Wii U.
STK026  +   1245d ago
No more heroes, MadWorld and House of the Dead Overkill were violent games on the Wii and Nintendo did not try to censor them in any way.

You say Nintendo has been censoring games forever, yet, I can't remember them censoring a game. Even BMX XXX was released uncensored on the Gamecube while it was censored on the PS2.
NatureOfLogic  +   1245d ago
ZombiU? will be one of the most brutal games when it comes out. Do some research then tell me that Nintendo won't make these type of games.

@STK026....In Bayonetta's case, I'm talking about the Nudity.
Do you believe Nintendo is going to try to cover her more up?

I think they will.
STK026  +   1245d ago
Maybe they will censor nudity, but I think it's too soon to assume they will. Like I said, they did allow an uncensored version of BMX XXX on the gamecube while Sony asked Acclaim to censor it on the PS2. Of course, that was years ago, have standards changed at Nintendo? Maybe, but I for one have yet to see it.

If you look at the Wii, I don't think Nintendo went to developers and publishers and told them how to develop their games; the publishers simply assumed that kid-friendly was more fitted and went with it. When I think of Nintendo, I think of a console maker who makes a console for everyone. The games developed at Nintendo and it's 2nd party studios range from family-friendly to hardcore games. It's mostly the third party publishers who have gone out of their way to make sure the Wii, and even the DS/3DS look like theyw ere made only for kids.

Have you not seen the exclusive Ayane mission in Ninja gaiden for the wii-u that nintendo is publishing and Nintendo are not censoring anything of it.

Your comparing Nintendo in the early 90s when seeing a woman get hit in medias such as games and cartoons as a really bad thing.
Ben_Grimm  +   1245d ago

Nudity? Bayonetta had nudity? I really don't remember that game having nudity in it. It's not like she was walking around fully exposed with t*ts and b**h hanging out. She was always covered by her hair.

Besides if Nintendo can let House of the Dead have a character that gleefully walks into his own monsterous mother's vagina then I'm sure they can allow for some nipple shots.
ninjabake  +   1245d ago
Nintendo is also publishing Ninja Gaiden 3 and it will be the most violent version of the game...on a Nintendo console(that only does kid and family friendly games, right?) Published by Nintendo no less LOL

Just because you want to follow a stigma that YOU want to believe, doesn't mean that is truly the case. Bayonetta is a solid game that is right where it belongs

Ninja Gaiden III on Wii U put BACK dismemberment when the 360/PS3 versions don't.

Lol I remember House of the Dead Overkill and I'm surprised by the amount of swearing in that game that I forbid my daughter from ever playing it. So I'm not gonna be surprised of Nintendo doesn't censor Bayonetta 2. It seems that Nintendo wants to expand their range of consumers.

It's exclusive. Nintendo is publishing the game. So we're all screwed if we dont pick up the game. I'm just going to wait and see how much the IP will suffef from this stupid move.
STK026  +   1245d ago
The IP can't "suffer" more than it already has. SEGA decided not to publish a Bayonetta 2. Nintendo decided to pick it up. Don't want to buy a Wii-U? Fine, don't, but don't come here saying we would've had a Bayonetta 3 had it not been for Nintendo. Without Nintendo, not only would there not be a Bayonetta 3, you wouldn't even have a 2.

geddesmond  +   1244d ago
The only people that think this deal is alright are the Nintendo fans. What some people don't get is if they want to continue playing a franchise they love then they are forced to buy a consol they don't want!!!

Imagine Nintendo sold the rights to Mario and Sony bought those rights and future Mario games were on the PS3, how many Nintendo fans that love Mario would be angry at a move like that especially since most Nintendo fanboys hate Sony.

I personally don't give a crap about Bayonetta. I bought it for the PS3, lived through the horrible loading times everytime you picked up an item and barely finished the game. Its too girly for my liking but people need to use logic here.

Also the statement Platinum games released about this is hilarious. The way they make it sound is they are expecting the Wii U to sell like the Wii lol. One of the reasons the Wii sold so much was because of the cheap price but Wii U doesn't have that going for them lol.

Yeah to make the game available to more people they ditch 2 consols that have over 100 mil sold between them in favour for a consol that will have 10 mil units sold first year at most lol. I love the stupid marketing people these publishers higher these days lol.

So am i the only one that realizes that before they announced the game, everybody was talking about how the Wiiu aint got no good game or games that interest them. Now that there is a game that clearly people want to play, they say FUCK IT BRING IT TO MY CONSOLE OR ELSE. SEGA cancelled the game and nintendo bought it, if u guys really have a problem u should have let your favorite publisher, or even SEGA to bring back the game, is it Nintendo's fault that the see this game and is FUNDING IT. Now would the same arguments be hapening if SONY bought the exclusive right to the game. Not on N4G. Sorry for grammar, leave replys if one disagrees
geddesmond  +   1244d ago
Lol that ain't my reason for not wanting a Wii U. My reason is I don't want to waste good money on a consol that will be left behind when PS4 and Xbox 720 release with double the power lol. Sega announced they canceled the game after all the hate as an excuse, don't be so naive, Bayonnetta 2 development has been hinted at a few years now lol.

How are people actually surprized that people are mad...I mean really. Yes some people might be a little immature about it but can you really blame them if they liked the game so much

People keep saying "Oh it wouldn't exsist without Nintendo" yeah well Bayonetta as a franchise wouldn't of exsisted with the 360/PS3 fanbase

It just bugs me that the majority of Nintendo console only users most likely didn't give a crap about Bayonetta, dismissed it like so many other third party titles because it never came to the Wii but now because the sequel is an exclusive it's like "YAY...AMAZING FRANCHISE, SO EXCITED"....

I mean it's like if Square Enix made Kingdom Hearts 3 a Wii U exclusive...would that be fair when the fanbase is the PS3 majority and they are the ones that got it where it is today.

For me it's not about what console it's on...I'll buy a Wii U in the far future and will play it eventually but it's just a slap to the face to the real Bayonetta fans, the ones who actually played and finished the first game.
chadboban  +   1245d ago
Sorry but PS2,DS,3DS and PSP got Kingdom Hearts to where it is today. There hasn't been a single one for PS3 as yet.

And to the "real Bayonetta fans". This game wouldn't even be coming out if Nintendo didn't save it. I'd rather Bayonetta 2 on Wii U than no Bayonetta 2 at all.

Still, fanboys will be fanboys.
stragomccloud  +   1245d ago
Actually, I think you'll find that most Nintendo gamers are pretty well rounded. Fanboys exist, yes. However, it is somewhat of a rarity compared to the other consoles. I love Nintendo, but of course I also own an xbox 360 and a PS3. The first Bayonetta was awesome, I have it for the 360, and now that the new one is coming out on the Wii U, which I've just pre ordered, I'm really happy about that. I think that my point is, that people need to follow the games, not the systems. If a game a lot of people like or will probably like go to a system, they should try to also invest in that system. I know that that sometimes seems like a lot to ask. However, we have an expensive hobby, and it comes with the territory.

That said. I don't think I need to convince you, and for the record I agree with you. It does kind of seem, like a slap in the face to the fans. Though, at least it's not as bad as when Squaresoft jumped ship to Sony. That was insane!!!
r21  +   1245d ago
If SE ever made KH3 and made it a freaking wii u exclusive, I'd probably go to SE and start slapping each employee. If it ever should be a console exclusive, it must be on PS. I mean KH started on the PS2 anyways so it should end(?) on a PS product. That or it goes multiplatform to every console available.

There was literally going to be no Bayonetta 2 until Nintendo went in and decided to publish the game. Why hate on anyone for that? I'm happy Nintendo had the faith to put up their own money to get the game out at all.

1.88 mill on VG across both system is still too low for real profit, and the first months sales were terrible, most of those were bargain bin sales.

I doubt they profited from the game, if they did, they'd put it on PS3 and 360.

Pppl shouldnt hate. I understand that ppl enjoyed the first, but imo its not one of those games that you have to have (ala Zelda, Uncharted, or Gears). There is a reason it wasnt picked up by the other big two between two systems it barely sold two million so to them its not a big loss and not a system seller at all.

In anycase i hope it turns out to be a good game for the wii u.

baldulf  +   1245d ago
It's not hate, but sadness at seeing how bad Platinum Games chooses its publishing partners.

The first Bayonetta was already a niche game on the 360/PS3. It's not going to sell even half of it on the Wii U.

Well, people complained about Nintendo Wii not having enough great games and it's obvious they won't be making the same mistake this time by this move. I'm not saying, fans should be upset but I'd rather Platinum move to Nintendo then tiptoe on the shake platform known as Sega.

Bayonetta and Vanquish virtually didnt get any real advertisement from their last publisher, I mean even on the Sega website you would see only info on Sonic, Total War Shogun or Jet Set Radio. When you look up any Platinum title you would only see their CD box and that's it compared to the videos and page decorations of others.

It's obvious that future was looking bleak for them and even though my dreams of a Sonic game made by PG+ is dashed,I say it's a smart move........

Firstly, lol at 3 accounts on this page being 1 person (classy stuff).

Secondly (and more importantly), let's see how this pans out. If the game is a vast improvement on the first (in was current hardware can't provide (not just touchscreen)) then I'll be happy. If not you know Platinum was just going through the motions for a (Nintendo based) paycheck.

Gamers today make me sad.

There's too much "core" crap to digest. A game is a game, and a console is a console. Get over it, children. Yes, I did call you children, because most of you are big man-babies. Grown men crying over a console and a game. PS3 & Xbox this, Wii U that. Pathetic. And you all wonder why gamers are looked down upon.

Nintendo brought the game back from the dead, you should be happy it's going to be released at all. But no, you're all crying it's now an exclusive to the Wii U. You all say it was released on the PS3 and Xbox so therefore the sequel deserves to be released on them as well. However, the same happened with Final Fantasy VII. Those were Nintendo games, but then Square jumped over to Sony. You're not complaining about this, oh no.

And I've read that people will purchase a Wii U when Bayonetta 2 is released, so don't pretend nobody is going to buy one to play the game, because, apparently, many people will be.

Will I be buying a Wii U? Sure, just not at launch. I'll be buying one because I enjoy video games, I am NOT bound to one system like most people. If I see games I like on another system, then I'll buy that console to play them. Simple. Why would I limit myself, honestly? There's no purpose to limiting oneself.

Lastly, people are seriously saying they're never going to play a game made by Platinum Games again? People sure do get uppity about a VIDEO GAME, don't they? It's funny... in a sad, sad way. Have fun missing out on their games.
PooEgg  +   1245d ago
Good points. Personally I think it is okay to be disappointed, and it is even okay for people to prefer one system over the other. Their is a way to state something that is respectful to others while still getting your point across, it is only the gamers who rely on angry and aggressive words to make their point that bothers me, because it makes all gamers look bad.
ash_divine  +   1245d ago
I'm pretty indifferent to all of this, but I have to agree with the article.

It seems like Platinum didn't really have a choice in the matter.

Truth is, Nintendo was probably like : "Wii-U exclusive or GTFO."

And I mean, it's not like they could say no.(it's was that or no game at all.)
koehler83  +   1245d ago
I think it's perfect.

Bayonetta was a subversive indictment of its core audience, the basement-dwelling pixel jerkers. Nothing but shallow, borderline misogynistic pandering set to porn music. Really pushing the boundaries of what's acceptable in games and seeing just how feverishly the BDPJs would eat it up. And man, they ate it up.

Now they're seeing if they can push it even further by making the BDPJs buy entirely new hardware for their next hit.

I can't wait to see the results.

YoungPlex  +   1245d ago
People are always going to be upset when a game that was multiplat goes exclusive. I honestly think that its great for both Platinum and Nintendo.

Nintendo wise, it shows that they mean business by revitalizing a franchise that was on the verge of death. Publishing this titles backs up what they said earlier about getting the core audience back!

Platinum wise, it leave them to exclusively develop on one console and possibly get help from Nintendo. This leaves more time to develop and tweak for one specific console instead of wasting time porting to another. I honestly think that expanding their relationships with third-party companies could bring back the core audience, after they get over the the first initial shock of loosing their beloved franchises to Nintendo.

I honestly feel that the game will evolve into something great on Nintendo, and hope to see more exclusive on the Wii U. They are off to a surprisingly great start and I'm almost convinced I'll get one; question is when...

shame that if this game was exclusive for PS3 or XBox 360 there was no sh*itstorm... But now when Nintendo steps into the HD era and claims an exclusive title everybody is raging.... It's not that it hasn't happend before on the PS3 or Xbox 360...

But this thing is just childisch, come on

I think there would very much be a shitstorm if it were exclusive to Xbox or PS3. I think you're diluting yourself by claiming otherwise.

Actually more so if it was and XBox exclusive. We all know how PS fanboys act when a game of interest is available on everybody except Sony's consoles. Better yet when a marquee PS exclusive goes multiplatform. *cough* Final Fantasy *cough*

Got a good point there. If it was on the PS3 or Xbox, no Nintendo only fanboy would be raging.
