CVG: A sequel with Nintendo is better than none at all, argues Nick Cowen
Nintendo gave the game a chance. Do people not see that? Nintendo also wants the Wii U to sell and they know they will get a few people with this. Microsoft and Sony do it all the time. Uncharted 4 on the PS4 will sell consoles, just as the next Halo or Gears will sell new Xbox's. Nintendo just wanted one of those as well.
Your missing the point, your right in what you say, but... Gears = MS Uncharted = Sony Bayonetta = Sony and MS Bayonetta 2 = Nintendo? Thats why gamers are upset, there going to have to buy a new console to play there beloved game Its like if the sequel to Deus Ex HR released ONLY on the Wii U, id be one of those gamers (not that itll happen, just an example)
I personally not sure why Nintendo went for the franchise because there was a reason why Sega dropped it and it was because it didn't sell well. Maybe Nintendo can do something about this but we will see
SoulCalibur= DreamCast SoulCaliber2= Nintendo,Sony,Microsoft SoulCaliber3= Sony? it's happened before and gamers didn't get upset about it.
@StraightedgeSES, Soul Calibur was on Playstation 1 as well. So Soul Calibur 1 through to 5 have all been on Sony platforms.
@prophet112 you are right my mistake.
I think you are confusing soul calibur with soul edge. True there has been a "soul" game on PS platforms but soul calibur in particular was a DC launch title that was later released for xbla. As for sould calibur 2. spawn felt out of place as did heihachi. yet both were interesting guest stars to their respected platforms. Link (to me) felt like he belonged in the game. Then we get SC4 with vader and yoda. yeah talk about out of placebut some how still effective.
ninty wants to get the hardcore gamer back on board. This game was about to get scrapped, nintendo saved it. whats there to say? and besides, maybe this game, sooner or later will lose it exclusivity status at some point, and it maybe will appear on next-gen consoles. In fact, i have reason to believe that this is timed, and it will make an appearance on PS4/720, so i rather just wait and see..
God of war will be more epic again.
I think its great. I for one am so sick of people beating Nintendo up! For at least the next year or so Nintendo will have the BEST system Period! Activision says Wii U is awesome Sega says the same and their games will look better on Wii U, Assassins Creed 3 1080p PS3 can't pull that off (and it sells for $249.00) Perhaps this time Instead of Nintendo waiting for a Port On Wii, Xbox, and PS3 owners will have to wait for PS4/720 Or settle for a lesser version of this game than what will be on Wii U Nintendo Like it or not is stepping up. I really doubt PS4 and 720 are going to be the graphical leap Like PS3 was to PS2 and Xbox360 was to Xbox....
even sony said that they wont try for the huge leap between ps4 to ps3 as they did for ps2 to ps3
I think whats pretty funny is people dont ask........or realize...... for those Wii only owners, u know, the guys who never had a ps3 or 360............ they have to buy a ps3 or 360 to play the first game and know wtf is going on. sooooo in essence Platinum is screwing both. though knowing nintendo die hards they would skip part 1 and just play part 2 haha.
You wished for more hardcore third party games you couldn't get anywhere else. You got exactly what you wanted.
They can be angry all they want. If they have no plan to buy a Wii U well they just miss out that would make anybody angry really if they loved the first. Smart move by Nintendo though picking it up. Its like Crapcom done with Monster Hunter to all those Playstation Fans. For years it was released on Playstation devices then it just went poof or never released outside of Japan. grumble grumble grumble
Well, I am going to buy a Wii U but I'm not going to buy Bayonetta 2 on the Wii U because I value Trophies and Achievements.
If it's truly a Wii U game you won't need to worry about that value, as it won't gain trophies/achievements..since it's only a WiiU game. Also, speaking of that..Are WiiU titles getting a for of TRPH/ACHVS? I would love it if they did just because Nintendo did Trophies on SMASH better than ever. I would love it to see the ability to collect trophies that you could see on your WiiCheivements! Channel or something like that.
Isn't the Wii U supposed to have Accomplishments?
If it had not been for Nintendo, Bayonetta 2 would never se the day of light. People should be happy that it is actualy coming and be happy for peope who are gonna buy the Wii U or/and buy a Wii U themself one day. People can be such asses sometimes.
Another author that is fanning the flames, stop writing articles about this and let those that are disappointed heal and move on. I think authors that fan flames are hating on those that are disappointed. Catch my drift, let it lie.
Considering the internet goes this crazy with what is a niche (though very good) title, think what would happen if a big franchise suddenly turned up as an exclusive on a Nintendo console... cough - Resi 4 - cough
Spoiled ignorant Brats they are. At least their game IS coming out.... selfish. If a new earthbound/mother game was released on PS4 you think the fans would be complaining this much ? No they would just be happy they get to play another Mother game. Ungrateful dumb people.
i see it both ways they should calm down because its getting made, and was going to be cancelled, and they should be pissed because some dont want a wii u and dont want to buy a whole system they may never use only for one game. i could care less because i will get a wii u in 2 years if there are ore games, bt had beyond good and evil 2 been announced i may have gotten it this year
