Hideki Kamiya to Those Asking About Bayonetta 2′s Wii U Exclusivity: “F*** Off”

Looking forward to Bayonetta 2? You may want to think twice before you ask Platinum Studios’, Hideki Kamiya, about its exlusivity to the Wii U.

The story is too old to be commented.
Snookies121001d ago

Didn't he say the same thing to people asking about her in Smash Bros.? This guy seems like a bundle of joy lol.

darthv721001d ago

in relation to the title...it would have been funny if the pic was him flipping the bird instead of thumbs up.

TransientDreamer1001d ago

@darthv72

Trust me when I tell you I looked for one lol.

Lord_Sloth1001d ago

This seems to be a very common response from him...

SilentNegotiator1001d ago (Edited 1001d ago )

"Hey, we would like to play your game, too"
"F*ck off!!"

Real nice response.

guitarded771001d ago

Guy: "So is Bayonetta 2 still exclusive to Wii U?"

Kamiya: "[email protected] OFF!!!"

Guy: "So you're saying it's possible?"

PopRocks3591001d ago

If some shmuck knocked on your door everyday asking if you take a crap on a golden toilet, I'd imagine you would get annoyed and tell him to "**** off" too.

SilentNegotiator1001d ago

"If some shmuck knocked on your door everyday asking if you take a crap on a golden toilet"

Perfect analogy.

/s

ShinMaster1001d ago

That made no sense, PopRocks

PopRocks3591001d ago

How about you guys use some critical thinking skills and understand that my analogy was to say people asking you the same thing over and over is irritating? In Kamiya's case, he's probably been getting it since Bayonetta 2's announcement. Simple.

SilentNegotiator1001d ago (Edited 1001d ago )

Several gamers asking if a game is coming to a system they have in the form of an easy to ignore tweet is not the same as one person knocking on your front door every day to ask you a question straight from a mad lib.

That is a stupid analogy. He had no cause to freak out the way he did.

PopRocks3591001d ago (Edited 1001d ago )

You're a gamer on the internet, right? You keep yourself well informed, yes? What is stopping people from doing a simple google search on the issue and not provoking the guy? Problem solved without annoying Kamiya and without earning one of said tweets.

Kamiya's been at this longer than the issue at hand. The only thing stupid here is people taking offense to his otherwise regular behavior. You have a problem? Don't follow his twitter. If this was about a Playstation 4 being ported to Wii U, you would be applauding Kamiya's behavior, I'm sure. The analogy is fine; your stubbornness and apparently resumed rudeness is not.

Edit: And while we're at it, correct your terminology; Kamiya did not "freak out." This is one of his normal responses to tweets of this nature. Where exactly were any of you over the past year? These tweets are pretty normal. He's responding to random people on the internet and quite clearly does not care what anyone thinks of him, least of all yourself. So don't try to make this into some sort of Phil Fish meltdown. It's not nearly on the same spectrum.

Lou-Cipher1001d ago

When nobody goes out to by a Wii U to play Bayonetta 2. That is all your previous Bayonetta 1 fans saying F#*k YOU!!!

SilentNegotiator1001d ago (Edited 1001d ago )

"You're a gamer on the internet, right? You keep yourself well informed, yes? What is stopping people from doing a simple google search on the issue and not provoking the guy?"

People want to ask the man himself. Nothing horrible about that. In fact, now that he has blown his top and that has been reported across the net, less people will probably bother asking because the search results would show this very definitive, angry twitter post.

"You have a problem? Don't follow his twitter. If this was about a Playstation 4 being ported to Wii U, you would be applauding Kamiya's behavior, I'm sure"

Another completely moronic comparison. He told people interested in his game to "f*** off" and my reaction to that doesn't have anything to do with how I would react to it getting ported. Furthermore, I didn't care for Bayonetta 1, but a lot of people are passionate about the game and simply want to play it on their system of choice.

When the game does poorly in sales BECAUSE of it being an exclusive

Kamiya - "F*** off"

Fanboyssuck271001d ago

When the game does a lot better than all these Nintendo haters think, then u can **** off x2.

truechainz1001d ago

No need to highlight the because. I know it probably won't help sales, but the original didn't do that well on 2 consoles with large install bases.

XboxFun1001d ago

Nobody else wanted it so I agree with Hideki. And from what I remember Bayonetta 1 didn't do so hot in sales so what difference does being exclusive have now?

What is wrong with gamers nowadays?

They scream for exclusives but then cry when those exclusives don't appear on their system of choice. This is why every industry head should take the internet with a grain of salt because 95% of people are just here to cry and hate.

Concertoine1001d ago (Edited 1001d ago )

This is platinum games were talking about.
The company that has never once met sales expectations.
The company that has trouble selling a game unless metal gear is in the title.
But also the company that will stop at nothing to make a creative, complex game regardless of sales, even to their detriment.
Bayonetta 2 wouldnt sell no matter what system it was on.

-Foxtrot1001d ago

@Fanboyssuck27

It's a joke...chill your bean

deafdani1001d ago

The first Bayonetta tanked, and it was available on Xbox 360 and PS3.

Then nobody wanted to publish Bayonetta 2, until Nintendo stepped up to the plate.

Not saying you aren't right, Bayonetta 2 may end up selling poorly anyway. But if it wasn't a Nintendo exclusive, it wouldn't even exist to begin with.

SilentNegotiator1001d ago

"Nobody else wanted it so I agree with Hideki. And from what I remember Bayonetta 1 didn't do so hot in sales so what difference does being exclusive have now?"

I'll try to make this easy for you; a game that did poorly on two very well selling systems will not do better on one very poorly selling system. That's the obvious difference.

tehpees31001d ago

@ SilentNegotiator

We all know the game won't perform well in sales. That is why only Nintendo want it. The reason Kamiya is annoyed is because they have repeated the answer time and again and people ignore it.

It might sell better on PS3 and 360 but Sega think its a flop. Because of that they aren't doing it. They know it will sell more there but they don't see any gain in this franchise so they dropped it and never looked back.

As far as publishers are concerned there is no loss with this franchise because it doesn't meet the financial expectations. Publishers don't care where it sells most because it didn't sell enough in the first place.

Its sadder for Platinum because they make great games and they aren't meeting their partner's expectations so they can't get future games they want out.

SilentNegotiator1001d ago (Edited 1001d ago )

@tehpees3

I'm aware that they're doing it because Nintendo funded it after underwhelming sales, but SEGA really should have realized that 1) the sequel is bound to do better because the series now has a history with very positive feedback (it would help them exponentially more if they released it to the same group of people) and 2) The Nintendo deal won't benefit them for long if the sales are even WORSE than before.

The fact this game wouldn't exist if not for Nintendo is entirely thanks to a lack of logic from SEGA.

......so anyway, the only point I was making was a response to XboxFun to tell him the obvious, OBVIOUS difference.

tehpees31001d ago

I fully agree 2 million sales for Bayonetta was great. During the PS2 era that would have been immense. The thing is Sega would have been looking at a bigger picture. They gave Platinum four chances to go places and nothing stuck to the wall. The first was Madworld which opened to poor sales so they blamed Wii. But take a look at the sequel (Anarchy Reigns) and you'll see it sold just as badly on PS3 and 360 so this clearly wasn't a demographic thing.

Bayonetta met strong sales but Vanquish also flopped. Four flops in a row meant Sega saw Platinum's games appealing to a niche audience and they pulled the plug.

As far as Sega is concerned its too risky to be building on the one brand that met very strong sales when said game still didn't meet their expectations. They believe Platinum's games appeal to a niche market and are too costly to continue. It wasn't specifically Bayonetta's flop. Vanquish is another example of a game that definitely should have done better then it did.

R00bot1001d ago

It doesn't really matter for him how the game goes, Nintendo funded it anyway.

I don't like his response but Bayonetta's exclusivity is not his fault. If Nintendo didn't fund the game then there wouldn't have been a sequel in the first place.

-Foxtrot1001d ago

The problem is some gamers and especially Kamiya are thinking Nintendo did it out of the goodness of their hearts...they didn't. They needed third party software, they saw this game needed picking up, they picked it up for that reason and to try and show people they are interested in third party software. Not because they actually wanted to support Platinum or Kamiya, if they did they would of given them a bigger budget to work with

At the end of the day it was just a business decision.

I'll bet my life on the fact Nintendo won't fund Bayonetta 3

I've said before after how good their relationship with Konami after Metal Gear Rising why didn't they ask them for help. Kamiya has talked about Sony and Microsoft but what about other publishers

Chrischi19881001d ago

You betting your life on a stupid matter like this? Dont take it personal, but do you even still have a life?

Concertoine1001d ago (Edited 1001d ago )

@foxtrot
Why else would nintendo buy a mediocre selling game? They needed 3rd party stuff, but they knew they needed unique 3rd party stuff, and bayonetta is a very niche game with a dedicated fanbase willing to follow the sequel on to wii u. You honestly thought they bought this game because it would be financially successful? Maybe profitable, hopefully so, but if they were after money they wouldve bought an exclusive assassin'd creed or another big name, not bayonetta of all games xD
And what do you mean a bigger budget?! This game looks amazing, 1090p native and 60 fps. Platinum has said working under nintendo is intimidating because they are such perfectionists.
Im betting bayonetta 3 wont come out because Platinum SAID they wouldnt make it.

triforce791001d ago

I know it will sell over a million easy mark my words those who dissagree are wrong the wiiu has 3 million sellers now with an install base of just 4/5 million so middle of next year I'm guessing with MK8,X,Project CARS,ect ect will help towards great sales...

NihonjinChick1001d ago

Foxrot, how do you know this budget wasn't big enough? Bayonetta isn't the type of game that needs millions upon millions to be thrown at it.

-Foxtrot1001d ago (Edited 1001d ago )

@Chrischi1988

lol...really? It's just a saying, you did do English at school right?

@Concertoine

"Why else would nintendo buy a mediocre selling game? They needed 3rd party stuff

You've just answered your own question

"with a dedicated fanbase willing to follow the sequel on to wii u."

I really doubt that many Bayonetta 2 fans will buy a Wii U JUST for that game. I love Bayonetta but I'm not just going to get a Wii U for it. I'd wait untill Smash Bros and Mario Kart come out or the next Zelda

"Platinum has said working under nintendo is intimidating because they are such perfectionists."

The thing about Nintendo is they are perfectionists but they wouldn't go the extra mile to make their games even better/longer. They get to the point where they've finished it and go "DONE".

"Im betting bayonetta 3 wont come out because Platinum SAID they wouldnt make it."

If it does well then they would do a sequel. Since they know it's most likely not going to sell as well, then they know Nintendo won't fund it. So that's why they probably said it because they know it won't be made but if Nintendo were so confident in them they would offer to fund it regardless of sales.

PopRocks3591001d ago

"At the end of the day it was just a business decision."

Well aren't you just the media genius of the day. Thanks for figuring it out for the rest of us. *slow clap*

No crap it was a business decision. The point is if you're going to ask anyone about it, you should probably ask Sega. Because thanks to Nintendo and Kamiya, for whatever the reason might be, that sequel is now happening and it's exclusive on Wii U. Period.

As for your statements about who is going to fund what, please tell me, do you have any insight on the stock exchange? I was thinking of making investments and I think your crystal ball may come in handy.

No he's just mad because he just realized that he has made a major Boo Boo, by making Bayonetta 2 exclusive. There is going to be a lot of Boo Boo'ing going on in the coming months!

"F*CK OFF ALL EXCLUSIVE IDIOTS"
- Hideki Kamiya

Yeah!!! How dare people on other platforms show an interest in the game and not magically know that nintendo paid for the development and nintendo is forcing it to be an exclusive!

Hmm, come to think of it having a large number of people from other platforms wanting to play the game should be very flattering.

Good thing he didn't call them idiots because he would make himself look like an idiot

... oh wait.

live2play1001d ago

"and not magically know that Nintendo paid"
...its not "magic" its all over the web, it was all over the web before and he even said it himself REPEATEDLY on his account how Nintendo is publishing... So who's the real idiot?

"Nintendo is forcing it to be exclusive"
I'm not even going to try and make you understand this part

brish1001d ago

Just because it's on the net doesn't mean every person on the net has read it. Do you understand that posting something on the net doesn't mean every person in the world has read it?

There are multiple sites on logic and reason on the net but that doesn't mean that everyone one the net applies logic and reason to the posts they write.

Do you know what fallacies you're guilty of in your post?

The man's fully justified, given that the sequel wouldn't exist without Nintendo's support and that point has been made *dozens* of times.

hankmoody1001d ago

This guy is one of the few devs who actually respond in kind to the fans on Twitter. And then what does he get for it? I saw a tweet a while back where some douche told him that he was glad they bombed Japan when they did for whatever reason. Forgot why, it may have been due to Bayo2 being a WiiU exclusive. And then people wonder why these guys get nasty after opening themselves up to the public.

He's just begging for Bayonetta 2 to flop ahwell its your fans but i see they don't get that Nintendo is supporting Bayonetta 2 :/.

Concertoine1001d ago

Right, i wont be buying the sequel to one of my favorite games because the guy who makes it gets pissed at someone asking a year old question.
...naaah i'll be getting bayonetta 2.

GTgamer1001d ago

Hey you should know that a certain amount of fans don't give a F they will not buy it out of spite and you know that.

NihonjinChick1001d ago (Edited 1001d ago )

@Gtgamer, I'm sure the people that were going to buy this game are still going to buy it. Bayonetta 2 not being multi plat won't affect them.
