Why Didn't You Buy Bayonetta?

Kenneth of writes: "If you frequent my articles then you know there is hardly a bigger fan of Platinum Games’ action masterpiece Bayonetta on the face of this earth. The game received glowing critical reception when it released back in January of 2010, but unfortunately the commercial reception wasn’t as positive – the developer has admitted that the title sold far less than expected.

Nowadays you can pick up a new copy of Bayonetta for $20, and if you haven’t played this game yet then that’s exactly what you need to do and fast."

I wanted to get it and was tempted at full price, but the PS3 version was horrible compared to the 360. I just felt I deserved more as a customer who is willing to pay full price for a game.

Well it's $20 on PSN now so you really have no excuse. I played it with the patch and it was fine for me. Nothing was broken or anything game breaking. It's a great game. Honestly the best action game this genre.

i think most people aint buy it because it was a lousy port good game.. but a lousy port..

EDIT..i guess some people didnt know

I bought it and got the Penny Arcade shirt...

PS3 and Xbox 360 fans didn't buy Bayonetta because it's not a shooter or racing game. Lets be honest here. The highest selling games on both of those systems are shooters. Action games don't sell on there.

PS3 Highest selling games - Battlefield, COD, Uncharted, Gran Turismo

Xbox 360 highest selling games - Battlefield, COD, Halo, Forza,

And this makes me so sad. I'm not buying a Wii U for a sequel to my favorite game ever. =( Pity its not multiplatform, I love the guys at Platinum.

'Lets be honest here. The highest selling games on both of those systems are shooters'

And the Wii's best selling 'games' was Wii Sports & Wii Fit. 'Let's be honest here',

Nintendo fans ignored games like MadWorld & Red Steel 2 (270,000 sold) in favor of tat.

That sucks it's gonna be great, just like the first one

Theyellowflash301587d ago

Sorry but Mad Word and Red Steel were no where near as good as Bayonetta. Monster Huner Tri and No More Heroes were pretty good, therefor better sales

I am just glad there will be a sequel at all. Hopefully they make enough money off of this deal with Nintendo that they can bring Bayonetta 3 to multiple platforms.

Great, I'll be enjoying Bayonetta 2 on the Wii U! The Wonderful 101 as well.

BeZdaBest1587d ago (Edited 1587d ago )

NYC_Gamer1587d ago (Edited 1587d ago )

i guess Assassins Creed and Batman: Arkham City/Asylum are shooters?

What do you have to say to jony's comment below? I mean, the Wii's best selling games are Wii Sports and Wii Fit. Action games don't sell there, either.

Why did you not list the highest selling games on the Wii like you did for the other two?

How did action games sell on the PS3 and 360? Wanna bet more action games sold better on the two HD consoles than on the Wii? Wanna bet there were MORE action games on them than the Wii?

I mean, how did God of War do? Or did you forget that?

Interesting. Or a pretty pathetic attempt. Either one.

On topic, I didn't buy it at first because of the shoddy port job. By the time I had a break in my gaming calendar, it was like ten bucks used, so I picked it up. Enjoyed it like I knew I would.

kenshiro1001587d ago

Or maybe because it just wasn't their cup of tea? I respect the fact that some people just weren't interested in the game.

I just didn't think it looked interesting. Some witch with crazy hair. Yeah, I'll pass.

Salooh1587d ago

What about MGR ?. It's one of my top 10 games i played..

ApolloTheBoss1587d ago

Your loss. That game was pretty damn awesome.

Ace_Pheonix1587d ago

I understand that it was probably pretty good, and I have a very open mind and like most things I try, but alas there is only so much time in the world yet so many games. Can't play them all.

ApolloTheBoss1587d ago (Edited 1587d ago )

@Ace That is understandable. Just don't judge a book by it's cover. You never know what will surprise you.
