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.
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)
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
@JellyJelly 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.
@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
Ninja Gaiden Sigma says hi.
@gaffyh 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.
Actually, it's a remake of Ninja Gaiden 2, which was published by Microsoft.
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?
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
@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.
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.
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) *
At Getowned. Very true about Monster Hunter. Though in my case, I both love and hate it. lol
@stragomccloud 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)
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$-410$
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
I agree. I doubt Bayonetta 2 is much of a system seller.
Platinum games is one of my favorite developers. Sadly their games, while they do sell decently, never sell well enough to be very noteworthy.
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.
That's Monster Hunter Frontier. Tri (afaik) is only available on the Wii and 3DS.
Ah right, got a little mixed up.
You're always a little mixed up...
@Sono - So's your face. :p Well I knew it had been released in some form already, never really played it myself.
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.
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.
If you bought the wii u for bayoncrappa for freaking crazy,lol. Monster hunter is Japans game. So yes that is clever.
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?
The 3ds sucks is why
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
kid...? Dude, i'm over 20.
Vashlion don't take it so personally kid.
