Bayonetta Swaggers onto the PlayStation Network Next Week

Push Square: "She may not be on the same plane as Sabrina the Teenage Witch, but Bayonetta is still pretty bad ass – and she’s strutting onto the PlayStation Network next week, SEGA has confirmed. The first title in Hideki Kamiya’s critically acclaimed series will launch as a digital download on 29th January in North America and 30th January in Europe. It will set you back just £11.99/$14.99." (Bayonetta, PS3)

Really? It's been on XBL for a long time.

Not sure why that matters.
IAMERROR  +   573d ago
I was just surprised that is all...

I wonder why Sega's official FB posted different prices
"BAYONETTA will be available for download on PSN in the U.S. on January 29th for $19.99 and in Europe on January 30th for £14.99!"

That's odd, those weren't the prices quoted in the press release.
Merrill  +   573d ago
14.99 in pounds in equal-ish to 19.99 in American dollars.

I bought it for 2.99 with a coupon at Toys R Us. I think I got ripped off.

This would be sweet if this was Playstation+ new game!

It will never be a PSN + game. The incidences when a game goes PSN+ (that isn't owned by Sony) is used to generate support for the next game. Considering the next game is Nintendo exclusive this will never be a PSN+ game

Awesome! We'll soon be getting Red Dead Redemption 2, inFamous 3, a sequel to Deus Ex HR, Portal 3 and much much more.

But not really.

nugnugs  +   573d ago
Poor controls? I am quite literaly speechless as far as your comment goes.
"Load of crap"???
I respect your right to have an opinion so I'm just going to put it down to you being mental. Or more likely a troll.

Although Bayonetta was alright its a game you would want to buy on Xbox360 instead of PS3. It just ran better on that system, so hopefully Sega fixed these issues and are not just putting it on PSN just to have it there cause you would just be buying a crappy port AGAIN!!!

and then P*game got it sh1t together
and made vanquish and MGS:R look and play better on ps3
hazardman  +   573d ago
Ok but were not talking about those games I'm talking about bayonetta and if you disagree your just a fanboy, when this game 1st released it was fucking awful on PS3. The slowdown and screen tear was fucking ridiculous. To top it off my comment was not negative in anyway towards PS3 but about the game itself. Either way I could careless how it plays on PS3 I already had my fun with it.
Ezz2013  +   573d ago
i didn't disagree
all i said they goth their sh1t together with ps3
so no more lazy ports from them
that's all
and yes bayonetta sucks on ps3

It was SEGA's fault for the bad port.

"Since Platinum had developed Bayonetta for Xbox 360, they off-loaded the PS3 porting duties to the game’s publisher, Sega, which gave the job to one of its in-house studios. The shoddy results, it seems, have left an impression, and taught the studio an important lesson."

This should be on ALL 70million+ PS3 HDD's, or PS3 game collection shelf, as it is one of the best hack'n'slasher, adventure, beat'em'ups EVER MADE........EVER. Everybody should own this game, the developers deserve the success for creating such excellence, & GAMERS OWE it to them selves to play this game, from one end to the other.
I hope a deluxe Sigma-esque version of the Wii-U bound pt.2 hits PS3 & 360, & if not, then take it straight to PS Orbis & Durango.

When DMC4 arrived & was a backtracking, snorefest, coma-inducing, piece of hippo excrement, Bayonetta took DMC's matle with ease.....it had the freaky weird character, just like DMC, although female, & it had the moves,....oh, does Bayonetta have the moves.
Just awesome.

A new version would be crazy, if Sony & MS got an enhanced, streamlined, polished version of both Bayonetta & Bayonetta 2 for there new incoming home consoles. It would be going home with my new lauch PS4 without a shadow of doubt.

i played it on 360, and other than the combat i couldnt tolerant the horrible voice acting, horrible (more like lack of story), horrible battle music, and the god awful characters.

the combat alone wasnt enough for me to finish this game, and i was probably 2-3 away from it.

to those that love this game thats more than cool i just dont like this game.
MestreRothN4G  +   573d ago
Too bad it is almost unplayable on PS3. Sorry, fanboys, I'm a PS3 gamer as well, but that's the awful truth.
Silly gameAr  +   573d ago
I played it on PS3, and it's far from unplayable. lol @ the "sorry, fanboys" part of your comment though.
MestreRothN4G  +   573d ago
I tried on PS3 as well, but the performance ruined the game, IMO.
barrypotter  +   573d ago
you pay £40s on day one release only to be frustrated with it. videos for it looked great.only to find out was not playable at times.very poor release from sega. the game lost it's value so fast
