Pachter: Bayonetta/Monster Hunter Fans Will Buy A Wii U Regardless of Price; Talks Wii U Success

Zelda Informer writes: Pachter seems to be really pleased with the Wii U after all the surprises Nintendo gave us yesterday, but we know PS360 Bayonetta fans were more than displeased. So what does Pachter have to say about all this?

A real analyst would say that the possibility of Bayonetta 2 going multiplat and being released on the 360/PS3 in the future is highly likely. It's most likely timed exclusivity to push the Wii-U at launch. Most people will probably hold off for a while and see what happens.

iamnsuperman2283d ago

Isn't Nintendo acting as the publisher????? They may not own the franchise but I suspect that a deal for Nintendo helping with the financial side of the game would be exclusivity. (Similar to Mass Effect 1 not being on the PS3)

NewMonday2283d ago (Edited 2283d ago )

that is why most people will hold off and see what happens.

but Nintendo only have one year before the real next gen starts.

if only they spent another 100$ on the tech and dumped the screen fad they could have won, but they insists on driving full speed into a brick wall

Hisiru2283d ago

I will have to say it again because it seems people is living in the dream world:
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.

Also, PS4 and x720 will have great exclusives as well. I suspect there will be reasons to buy every console. No need to make excuses.

im not quite sure why people are thinking its going to head to xbox or ps3, its like micosoft publishing mass effect and sony publishing mgs4, its just one of those games thatll be exclusive. people just need to get over it. buy a wii u or dont buy a wii u, but im tired of people bitching over one damn game.

stragomccloud2283d ago (Edited 2283d ago )

@new monday. I still can't believe that people disregard the Wii U as a next gen platform. I guess then we could infer that when the PS2 was out last generation, that it was in fact 2 generations behind. Because compared to the Gamecube and the Xbox, the hardware was laughable. Yet it still held its' own. I do not believe you will actually look into the architecture of Nintendo's new system to find out out just how much more powerful the thing is when compared to current gen offerings, nor will I try to explain. Needless to say, the next offerings from Microsoft/Sony will not be nearly as powerful as people are expecting when compared to Nintendo's next gen platform.

NINTENDO publishes Bayonetta 2.. no way it´s gonna end up on another console

gaffyh2283d ago

Ninja Gaiden Sigma says hi.

vallencer2283d ago (Edited 2283d ago )


Ninja gaiden sigma is also a different game. They got away with it by changing the game around and adding a bunch of new and different stuff in it.

gaffyh2283d ago

Actually, it's a remake of Ninja Gaiden 2, which was published by Microsoft.

DigitalAnalog2283d ago

Sony also published Heavy Rain. But you won't see Heavy Rain: The Beta Chronicles on the 360 in the near future now would you?

Baka-akaB2282d ago

I dunno why people keep mentioning Microsoft and NG .

Nintendo as a publisher always had a way tigher grip .

Microsoft had no qualm about letting NG and mass effect go

gaffyh2282d ago

@digitalanalog - Probably depends on whether or not Nintendo actually owns the IP. Because Sony owns Heavy Rain IP, meaning it cannot be spun-off or released on anything else, without their permission. That was not the case for Mass Effect or Ninja Gaiden obviously.

Aceman182283d ago

no i didn't like the game that much when i played it on 360, and i've never played any of the monster hunter games so i will not be buying the wii u on launch because of these two games.

i'll stick to my original plan to buy it 6mths-1yr after launch.

Getowned2283d ago

Monster Hunter is a good game but (IMO) you love it or hate it. I wont buy a console just for monster hunter. I can't believe anyone would buy a console just for the fact it has Bayonetta 2 XD!! that made me LOL

"why are you buying a WiiU"
For Bayonetta 2!!!
(!) O___O ... "uhh..."
Bayonetta OWNS!!
"ok than, have fun" O_o;! *Slowly walks away*
* waits for the real next gen console(PS4 & 720) *

stragomccloud2283d ago

At Getowned.

Very true about Monster Hunter. Though in my case, I both love and hate it. lol

Getowned2283d ago


I agree I'm the same way, what I hate about it is all the scavenger hunting, also didn't care for the controls on wii no matter how I played it(controler or with a Wii mote). I did enjoy it sometimes though, and I loved killing all the harder to kill monsters. I know Monster Hunter will sell systems and if I decide to get a Wii than I will probably get it.

XD but I don't see Bayonetta as a system seller, its kinda funny that someone would buy a system for just Bayonetta (IMO)

NewMonday2283d ago (Edited 2283d ago )

Monster Hunter is a big franchise but the WiiU game is a port available elsewhere

and i'm a Bayonetta fan but not buying it for 360$-410$

iamnsuperman2283d ago

I do not see Bayonetta being that big enough for a large majority of people to buy the system just for that game. The first one wasn't that popular and that was for multiple systems. Monster Hunter thing, on the other hand, is massive. Especially in the Asia regions

BrutallyBlunt2283d ago

I agree. I doubt Bayonetta 2 is much of a system seller.

stragomccloud2283d ago

Platinum games is one of my favorite developers. Sadly their games, while they do sell decently, never sell well enough to be very noteworthy.

gaffyh2283d ago

Yeah, this will probably sell decently in Japan, but Monster Hunter Tri is already available for PC and Xbox 360, so I don't see it as a big deal.

SonyNGP2283d ago

That's Monster Hunter Frontier. Tri (afaik) is only available on the Wii and 3DS.

gaffyh2283d ago

Ah right, got a little mixed up.

Sono4212282d ago (Edited 2282d ago )

You're always a little mixed up...

gaffyh2282d ago

@Sono - So's your face. :p

Well I knew it had been released in some form already, never really played it myself.

ronin4life2283d ago

By port you mean the 3ds one right?(assuming you are talking about the western market)

Monster hunter 3ultimate is a much fuller game than tri, and has a lot more content including weapons excluded from tri. It won't be a system seller by any means, but it is another solid reason to own a wiiu.

Jonmau52283d ago

Monster Hunter will sell some consoles but if the price was too high then obviously less consoles would be sold.

I think the price of the extra control pads is a real concern for them.

chukamachine2283d ago

If you bought the wii u for bayoncrappa for freaking crazy,lol.

Monster hunter is Japans game.

So yes that is clever.

Kenshin_BATT0USAI2283d ago

The problem is. The new monster hunter game is on WiiU AND 3DS. They kinda shot themselves in the foot here because a lot of people have a 3ds, so why would they buy the wiiu and the game when they can just buy the game for 3ds?

Baka-akaB2283d ago

Some people dont need or want a portable monster hunter . I know you kids mostly started on psp or 3ds , but it was originally a home console game :p

vallencer2283d ago

Vashlion don't take it so personally kid.

Baka-akaB2282d ago (Edited 2282d ago )

it was more a general statement , i dont know obviously about you .

But like you find odd to play monster hunter on wii U , i find it more weird to bother with the game on portable consoles (especially with the older ones like psp , that couldnt even get a decent camera , with their lack of second stick)

Kenshin_BATT0USAI2282d ago

Ahh fair enough. Personally, I prefer gaming on my pc, so I kinda get where you're coming from.

From my personal experience though, I played MH for the first time on my psp, and actually enjoyed it quite a bit. It was really fun and the controls were far from bad.

Redempteur2283d ago

"so why would they buy the wiiu and the game when they can just buy the game for 3ds? "

Because the game has cross saves and progression between 3ds and wii U ( it's confirmed as a feature ) ?

ronin4life2283d ago

It will sell well. Not spectacularly, but well.

Look up monster hunter portable 3rd and monster hunter portable 3 hd. The PS3 version sold okay(hd), but the psp one sold incredibly((released first)

Except that the tri series is just a variant of those games(an arguably better one, but still a variant), so the fact that the game has basically been released 5 times now with wiiu can't be ignored either.
