What Bayonetta 2 Exclusivity Means to Nintendo

Jeff from Holygrenade dissects the surprising news, and how Nintendo's shiny new exclusive impacts the Wii U's first chances at success. (Bayonetta 2, Industry, Nintendo, Wii U)

It means awesomeness.

Seriously so many trolls on Wii u articles lately.

if you don't care about the system then why bother commenting in the first place?
HammadTheBeast  +   1049d ago
I can say that about every article.

It also means...
I might have to get a wiiu as long as they have a few more good exclusives.

It symbolizes something good about nintendo that they are going hardcore. Bayonetta it self is not a system seller though.

What does the last of us and god of war mean for sony? same crap.

IT was a bad move from PlatinumGames.....but also a good move for Nintendo.

Kudos for Nintendo.

Middle finger for PlatinumGames.


this actually happened with RE back in the day. Nintendo stole RE, Sony and Microsoft stole RE5 and 6 from Nintendo. Geez, why can't they just finish these series for every console they go on?

Index finger AND middle finger for Bayonetta :)

I am very happy to see the critically acclaimed Bayonetta franchise make its way exclusively to the Nintendo Wii U entertainment system. Day one purchase for the next iteration of this fine, and exciting franchise wherever videogames are sold. We the Nintendo Elite supporter may even witness Bayonetta enlist as a future Smash Bros character if Nintendo decides to bless us with such an honor. Things are looking more positive for the Nintendo brand name by the day.

Rated E For Everyone

Yea i am too excited since i will be pre ordering my Wii U soon.
LX-General-Kaos  +   1049d ago
That is great news. I hope you enjoy your Nintendo Wii U entertainment system just as much as past Nintendo platform offerings.
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1049d ago
Hopefully, more than the GameCube.

might wanna do it soon heard from a GS manager the delux edition may be cut off at the end of day today. Just sayin.

I'm tired of this troll account. It was funny at first, but it's just annoying now.

I see you spreading positive Nintendo news all the time as well. Your support is much appreciated.
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1049d ago
Lol. I spread positive Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft news. Gaming is awesome and I'd like to keep it around forever.

I still think you're insane.

I am excited for this! I loved the first game.

It doesn't mean anything for the WiiU. I'm really not sure why people are thinking this is some blockbuster coup from Nintendo. Bayonetta sold less than 2 million copies on the PS360 combined with a 100 million console audience. What makes anyone think that this is the game that tips people over the edge into buying a WiiU?

3rd party games have historically done poorly on Nintendo consoles since the N64. Games like No More Heroes and Madworld did pretty poorly on the Wii. The WiiU will sell a bazillion units and it's not because it has Bayonetta 2.
GameTavern  +   1049d ago
It won't be a system seller, and it doesn't have to be. Nintendo handles that well on their own.

What it does is deepen the line-up of games for the console. It appeals to people who wouldn't traditionally buy a Nintendo system. So while I don't think it would sell the game to many, it does start to get wandering eyes curious about games like this.
smashcrashbash  +   1049d ago
Exactly what I have been saying to a million disagrees.People keep droning on as if it means something but it doesn't. Bayonetta didn't even sell as much as Devil May Cry did. It was multiplat and it barely sold two million copies. It's not a big deal but people are stomping their feet and flag waving and b***h as if they just won the lottery or something. If Sega hadn't tossed Bayonetta 2 aside it would never have been exclusive.All they are doing with this is lessening the amount of people that will play it.No one is going to jump to buy the Wii U for Bayonetta 2, not even the few fans it has.
aquamala  +   1049d ago
people are excited for this game, who cares that it's not going to sell like a CoD?
Lucretia  +   1049d ago
everyone who didnt own a ps3 or 360 (nintendo fanboys)

looks like if u want bayonetta 2 to make sense ur gonna have to go buy a ps3/360 since u missed the first one, lmao, they wont even buy the 2nd one, they just want it for bragging rights
dark-hollow  +   1049d ago
Damned if they do, damned if they don't.

first off people cried at how they got bored from Nintendo exclusives, so Nintendo brings for the first time some major third party games to their consoles, but then people complain that they don't want "ports" that exist on other consoles.

so now Nintendo boldly fund bayonetta 2 for those who want "mature" games, but even then they complain about how they "stole" their game!!!!

No matter what Nintendo does, it can't please that kind of zealot, eltist gamers.
wishingW3L  +   1049d ago
well this is more like 2nd party since Nintendo are publishing it. And the hate comes from the fact that Bayonetta was a multiplatform tittle, if this were a new IP no one would be complaining.

Is this so hard to understand?

it means they get high fives for days
fossilfern  +   1049d ago
I cannot wait! I will cry tears of joy when I get this game!
abzdine  +   1049d ago
does that mean they will be getting the first one in 1080p ? then i can maybe play it cause i want to vomit when i play it on PS3.
PygmelionHunter  +   1049d ago
I know, I didn't pay much attention to the original Bayonetta by the time it came out, but now with all these news and stuff, it sound like something I would enjoy playing, then somebody mentions just how horrible the PS3 port was, so I go to LoT to see the comparison and, oh my god, how could they f*** that game up so badly on the PS3?

Now I'm scared of playing the PS3 version, so I'd rather just sit down and watch a playthrough on Youtube or something, anything but having to play that crappy port...
PirateThom  +   1049d ago
The PS3 version watched patched, with the help of Sony. That LoT was pre-patch. Not sure how much better it is though.
PygmelionHunter  +   1049d ago
You're right! Thanks for the heads up! I may pick it up then before the second one comes.

it means nothing
but the game will sell less than pt1
Blastoise  +   1049d ago
Its a good business move by nintendo. But I dont think its as big a deal as everyone is making it out to be. Its not GTAV.
Lucretia  +   1049d ago
i'd rather crap like dynasty warriors be a system seller 4 me than gta5 lol. eff that game, hasnt been fun since gta2 or san andreas
Roper316  +   1049d ago
" what does the timed exclusivity mean to Nintendo? "

There I fixed it, they are like MS and left out the word timed before stating exclusive. Anyone remember RE4? EXCLUSIVE TO GAMECUBE! 6 months later is was on the PS2.

I would bet that this is only a timed exclusive.
GameTavern  +   1049d ago
Nintendo didn't publish Resident Evil 4.
ohbaby  +   1049d ago
In denial much
MySwordIsHeavenly  +   1049d ago
That just means I'll probably never play it.
StreetsofRage  +   1049d ago
Does 1 game make a difference?
IT SURE DOES! Looks like I'm buying me my first Nintendo since Ulta 64.
HeavenlySnipes  +   1049d ago
I don't get the fuss. It's like having Darksiders 2 being exclusive. A good game but not a system seller. Not buying a WiiU just because it has Bayonetta 2 lol
BlueandRed  +   1049d ago
I might buy one, but not for Bayonetta 2.
LoaMcLoa  +   1049d ago
We haven't really seen anything from the game so who knows.. Might be Wii U's Resident Evil 4!
IQUITN4G  +   1049d ago
Darksiders is fine and all and for a lot of people it's infinitely more appealing than Bayonetta, but nobody can seriously claim it superior where combat is concerned unless they haven't play Bayonetta enough to realise this
GameOn  +   1049d ago
is anything superior to Bayo combat? Im pretty sure the answer is no.

I came close to mastering it and it's just so EPIC?
IQUITN4G  +   1049d ago
Yeah it's one of those special games that just keeps giving. Even after finishing all difficulties you're still just getting warmed up to what you can achieve with the dynamic combat, and of course this depth goes unnoticed for the most by gamers quick to disagree that Bayonetta is apparently rather rubbish in this sense. Ah well

Just read about this today...also made a decision I will be getting a WiiU, I'm excited for this game Zelda in true HD and the abundance of Jrpgs I think this console will get...

I enjoyed Bayonetta...

It means instead of not having the game at all, at least its on a Nintendo console. They basically bailed the game out because nobody else wanted to. Even though it sold what would be considered pretty well, it seems new IP's need to sell in the 5 million range to effectively be considered a success.

I'm excited, I have the first game on Xbox 360 and was looking forward to the second one, now I'll get to play it as an exclusive for my Wii U. Huge core title for the Nintendo crowd. Proves Nintendo is going after every type of gamer this time around.
Dead_by_Dawn  +   1049d ago
Nintendo will sell consoles with or without bayonetta 2. In fact the game might even sell less. The first game roughly sold, just over 2 million copies on two consoles and now its on one. I'm not trying to hate btw. I'm glad to see nintendo bring more hardcore games. Where in this gen, they had very few worth mentioning
OneAboveAll  +   1049d ago
lol the first game and this one looks like trash made for weeaboos so i can't help but laugh at the butthurt. Who cares? Play a game that doesn't look so damn stupid.

Come at me haters.
ohbaby  +   1049d ago
Exclusive because the game was scrapped and nintendo revived it means it will not be timed. It will stay on nintendy. Man alot of you are in denial over a game. Just buy a wii u. I i i is it timed exclusive Lol
kevinsheeks  +   1049d ago
In the normal world people would thank Nintendo for saving bayonetta and not letting it get threw away at least we have the option of playing it

Sega didn't plan to do anything with the series they dropped it Nintendo paid to bring it back

A real gamer should be happy that it's getting made i don't know what you guys are -.-
DwightOwen  +   1049d ago
They're called "fanboys". They suffer from IBaS (Ignorant Broke-ass Syndrome), the only cure being getting a real job so that they can afford to buy more than one console. Sad really.
kevinsheeks  +   1048d ago
Bubs for IBaS :))
