Platinum Games creative director JP Kellams has revealed on Twitter that he is fed up with Microsoft and Sony gamers requesting that Bayonetta 2 be ported to the Xbox and the PlayStation.
What's wrong with that? It should be a compliment. They like your game.
True, though it might get annoying when the answer is clearly Nintendo is funding the game (publishing it and all)
The gamers will come together and win.. Boycott Bayonetta 2 so when they make Bayonetta 3 they will package B2 with B3 for X1 and PS4.
It sucks being fan of a game series in today's games industry. Even when I get my WiiU I'm skipping this game.
@mikeslemonade If that's how you win count me out. Gamers are the worst...boycot a game so it release on your preferred console...you must be tripping.
@mikeslemonade Boycott? That makes no sense at all, as they won't even be able to buy it. Boycott Bayonetta 2 would be like Wii U gamers boycotting it...If you are a Xbox One gamer only for example it's not like you can boycott Killzone or something, that makes no sense.
Well if you want B3 to made for the WiiU then go buy B2 for the WiiU. B3 with current gen technology would be better than B3 with last gen technology. So if you stunt the potential of last-gen's best hack-slash game, then keep buying it on the WiiU. From early reports Nintendo won't make enough money from this and then Platinum games will go 3rd party multiplat again for their next game. I'm guessimg B2 is gonna only sell 80k for the first week and then won't reach 500,000 units in its lifetime. Considering that would be a 1:10 attach ratio for the Wii U right now.
Here is the thing. With low WiiU sales, B2 will sell like sh!t on it. So let it fail, XBox One and PS4 owners will make other games succeed in sales.
The easy answer to say to those who are begging is....get a wii-u. Problem solved. its not that hard to see there will be games you just cant play any other way than by buying the platform its for. Put away the petty differences of platform loyalty and stick to what we are really loyal to. the games themselves.
@lemonade That is literally the dumbest thing I've read today. Bayo 2 WOULD NOT EXIST if Nintendo hadn't put up the money for it. No one wanted to fund a sequel so what makes you think boycotting Bayo 2 would get a ps4/Xone version or a Bayo 3 on ANYTHING? smh....
Platinum's Inaba is a money hat. Money talks.. Bayonetta 2 will sell like crap. Even hardcore Nintendo fans won't buy it because it's not a "Nintendo game". It fits perfectly in the PlayStation universe with the X1 zealots also double dipping on it. You know what else Nintendo will do.. they will ruin the game. Bayonetta 1 was the best hack/slash game last generation and Nintendo will put some restrictive crap on it and then make it crap.
If Bayonetta 2 is boycotted, then there will be no Bayonetta 3.
then may he accept the future flop like MadWorld was, he probably will be happy to see his game being ignored i guess?
@iamsuperman: There's a sweet irony there for the developer. Wonder if he's annoyed that all his fans are on ps and xbox?
Platinum Games employees are still pricks that can't just ignore a couple of posts on Twitter and some gamers are still ignorant to the fact that Nintendo is funding the game. What's the news here?
You don't need to boycott Bayonetta 2, it isn't first party Nintendo, and it's on Nintedo's console, so its sales will not be stellar. They will be forced to port to next gen to make up for losses.
Boycotting this game isn't a bad idea, after all Nintendo doesn't own the IP, Sega does, so it's feasible and sane, but if they do I don't think anyone will benefit, Sega wasn't even going to do a second game in the franchise since the first one didn't perform as well as they wanted. I doubt it'll get a sequel if we boycotted it... Best to support the game in it's current state and hope they bring the franchise on the PS4 and Xbox One later. Obviously it's clear that fans want it, it would be nuts to not answer the call of fans who got into the franchise WELL AFTER the game launched.
@mikeslemonade Just tried talking to this guy... It's pointless. For someone that helped make such an amazing game the "gamers voice" aspect doesn't exist to this guy. Don't bother tweeting him either. He is the one losing money for nobody else buying the game on other consoles. I'll be happy just playing the first one. They lost my money. To everyone else: Boycott it! They obviously don't want your money. One voice speaks for the entire team and when idiots like this decide to voice out how they feel about people requesting a port. Normally companies would be happy people like their game but obviously this isn't the case for them. Who cares if there is no B3? Not many will be able to play B2 because we won't buy a Wii U for one game.
@ mikeslemonade by the time Bayo 3 comes out a gamer would probably have a wiiu by then.
Bayonetta was rubbish and nobody bought it. That's why they never did a sequel until somebody paid for it. I don't know why anybody outside of cosplayers would be interested and if you are you should be diehard enough to just go get a wiiu.
@ Gaming101 Clearly you have no idea how game design works. Platinum got their money from Nintendo. All money earned goes to Nintendo. Nobody is paying for a PS4 and XBO port because Nintendo won't put it on a rival platform and Sega can't afford it. Konami clearly didn't want Bayonetta 2 or they would have published it along with Rising. If MS and Sony wanted it they would have done what Nintendo is doing. Take it out on those guys. They aren't paying for this fantasy of your's to come true. Platinum couldn't care less as they have their money.
I don't know why you are all arguing about this. This game is on the Wii U. Platinum Games are going to find out the hard way where the money is at this gen, and it's not on the Wii U. Bayonetta 2 is going to sell less than the first game and Platinum Games won't make a Bayonetta 3. That's all that's going to happen. Why should anyone support them anyway? They're lazy devs. They didn't make a proper Playstation 3 port of the first game and instead handed it off to Sega, who ruined it. Rising is a mediocre game, and Bayonetta is exclusive to probably the worst console for its genre to be exclusive to. Clearly these people have no idea what they're doing, and it will be on them when they lose so much money. You don't have to boycott the game if you don't have and don't plan on getting a Wii U anyway.
if the game doesn't sell well on the wii-u. than I guess he only has himself to blame since he is so 'fed-up' with gamers asking otherwise.
I know a lot of people disagree with me but Bayonetta was on my Top5 Most Hated games last gen so I couldn't care less :D I own a WiiU but I will never buy that POS
The Wii U really needs this game as an exclusive for it's success. If it were to loose it...
more hating on a console they do not own. how surprising. if you want the game buy wiiU. more exclusives is coming out and all yall say is that its gonna eventually come to next gen and i dont care its crap anyway. yall tout exclusives so much but have a problem when sony dont have excess to a game. give credit when credits do.
Is Nintendo funding Bayonetta 2?
Thanks got the answer.
They are the publishers so they have to be other wise Nintendo have managed to swindle a very good deal. The money doesn't have to be for the game development (but with Platinum Games not being small I doubt that) but for things like advertisement
Bayonetta Sigma 2 for X1 and PS4
Didn't Microsoft fund Bioware though for Mass Effect ...just think.....in this industry stranger things have happened. EDIT: Couldn't a third party publisher or Sony/MS buy the rights from Nintendo then....it would take years to see it on other platforms but it's not "impossible"....righ t?
EA bought the Mass Effect 1 console rights from MS and then they created a ps3 version
No its not impossible but theyll have to ask both Nintendo and Sega so if either one of them say no you wont see it on another console.
The rights for Mass Effect were bought by another company. Unless the same happens here, which I doubt because Bayonetta is not a game that sells, it's not happening.
Nintendo maybe publishing the game but they don't own diddly squat. They 0 say it what happens to the IP. They maybe able to stop a vanilla version appearing on any other console but unless they have a contract saying that there can be no other versions (unlikley as they have no claim on the IP) there is very little standing in the way of a 1.5 version appearing. However I don't think PG will do anyway as not enough people bought the first. But when you put a decent version on one console which fan base is known to favour FPS. And release an awful version on the console who's fan base are known to favour action games like this. Then why would those who would like this game buy it if it's so poorly made its unplayable.
^ Publishing rights can still be a huge barrier on getting the game on another system and I doubt Ninty would even entertain any publishing buy outs.
Maybe he feels its a slight to the Wii U? He could just tell those fans to buy one.
Exactly. Gamers should just give him a big middle finger. Now he's going to get rewarded with millions and millions of sales on the Wii U. /rant
Honestly, the game is going to sell next to no copies, so perhaps he's feeling grumpy about that. In a world where Super Mario 3d world is having such low sales, I'd personally be flattered and happy that so many people want to play my game, especially when stuck on such a hard-selling platform.
And when the game sells like crap... They will want to port it to other systems and won't be able to. Forgive me if I don't think this game is going to move systems, hell by the time it comes out the WiiU will be out sold by bothe PS4 and XB1(provided they can produce enough consoles)
I thought they had already both outsold the Wii U didn't they?
@kneon - sales for the PS4 are just over 2 million, Xbox One are around 2 million. Wii U is closer to 4.5-5 million at this point.
I guess the article I read must have meant that the ps4 outsold the Wii U for this year rather than lifetime sales.
You know how excessive a certain bunch of gamers can be, platinum games know its not getting ported and are clearly tired of the question. So act like grown ups and drop it already.
I find it amazing nintendo got a 3rd party exclusive.
Dragon Quest 10,Monster Hunter,Zombi U and Sonic all say hello!!
They may like it, but they didn't *BUY* the first one. Which is why Nintendo paid to make it when Sega didn't want to.
Yeah, this guy is just self-fellating. "Oh, ALL these people just BEGGING me to give them my game...stop!!!" What an egotistical prat. Reminds me of Mango on SNL... "Can you catch a falling star without burning your hand? Can you put the sky in your mouth? Can you say to an earthquake..'hey hold still for a second'? No! Such is Mango!" Apparently, such is Mr. Kellams with his also-ran video game. Douche. Sorry guy, most of us didn't know who you were before today or that you were making a sequel to a semi-obscure, semi-successful God of War knock-off. Then he gets sand up in his VJ about negative comments, when his own Tweet was so negative and childish...
smh.. They better hope wiiU sells more. If this game can't survive on ps3 and 360 imagine wiiU. lol
The only people that can "boycott" this game are wii u owners, so buy a wii u?
So salty here People here feel so differently when it's Sony that paid off a developer to make a game exclusive http://n4g.com/news/1409902...
More people should have purchased Bayonetta 1 when it came out for the X360 and PS3. It didn't sell until it hit bargain bin.
Imagine you drew a nice picture, a very nice picture indeed, then someone wanted you to paint it, someone wanted it in charcoal, a blind man wanted it in braille. Gee, sure is flattering that all these people continuously demand something you don't want to, or cant do.
Many times He already stated that Bayonetta 2 will forever be a WIIU exclusive. Stop acting like children and get over it. be grateful the game is even being made thanks to Nintendo.
Why should I be grateful that they're making a game I want for a console I'll never own?
lol i don't think Lopez thought that comment out before posting it. why would a ps/xb gamer be grateful they won't be able to play B2?
because if Bayo2 does well you may very well see bayo 3 on multiple systems. And it means now you have the chance to play it if you really want to vs the game not even existing, @first1nfantry, i don't tnink you thought your comment through before posting.
You're the same kind of dude that will talk shit to a nintendo fan who gets mad because games don"t launch on the wiiu. Too bad you'll miss out on this game and several dozen onther triple A titles because you're so against the wii u. Have fun with Bias: the Game.
Buy this same logic why can you be mad about a game thats founded by a companies console that you don't own?what your gonna boycott something you don't even have the device to play on?
Bayonetta 2 wouldn't exist without Nintendo. So be grateful that they funded it and cut the fanboy stuff out. I am fortunate enough to own all 3 gen 8 consoles and a PC. I have access to all system exclusives.
That is why I have PS3/4 and Wii U. There are Games I want on both systems. It is not like Bayonetta 2 is or will be the only great game for Wii U. There are like 7 GREAT games I own and play on Wii U. The past 6 weeks I have played Wii U an awful lot. Can't wait for some more great PS4 games, but I could care less if Bayonetta2 comes to the system or not. Nintendo funded Bayonetta for "core" gamers yet so many of you, still just crap all over Nintendo. Even when Nintendo does something good.
Whaaa, I bought a PS4 but I wanna play Halo! WAAAA, WAAAA! I got a Xbox but I like God of War! WAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!! Why aren't those Marios games on my PS3!?! WAAAAaaaaaaaa!
The game wouldn't EXIST without Nintendo. They funded the damn thing.
Be grateful you have the chance to play a sequel. However it's your choice to ignore the opportunity by not buying a Wii U. Nobody is forcing you not to have a second console. But those who don't go for it could miss out on a fantastic game. Meanwhile Wii U owners will enjoy a game that could sell well on a system that won't have tons of similar games to compete against it!
Then that's your problem, you'll have to deal with deep seeded hatred for a company that saved a franchise that would have been dead otherwise.
Thats the whole point...you buy a console to get games you want. If you want the game your supposed to buy the console.Gamers like you today are whats screwing up the industry and thats why there are barely any exclusives anymore.You all pout and complain if a game isnt multiplatform. Exclusives help sell consoles and if your going to act like a child and think being spitefull to yourself by denying yourself the game, because its on Nintendo, is the mature thing to do then enjoy not playing a series you like. Fans like you will whine about how Nintendo doesnt cater to you, how they make games for kids,or all they have is Mario..but when they go out of their way to bring you a game you like thats "mature" such as this,or bring something new to the table like Wonderful 101, your no where to be found! So now Nintendo is in a no win situation.If they bring you mature games your into or new games,gamers like you wont buy them because they are on Nintendo.Then when they make Mario,Zelda & Pokemon the complaint is they make the same stuff and its for kids! Honestly a lot of gamers are so jaded today that your actually ruining what made gaming fun to begin with! You dont see fans complaining about Dead Rising 3 as an Xbox One exclusive do you??
@bessy67 - who's to blame there then? If you don't want to purchase a console, then you don't deserve to gripe about the exclusives that you won't be getting. If you own an Xbox One, would you sit here griping that you don't get to play Uncharted, God of War, The Last of Us or any other exclusive Playstation game? I didn't think so..
The silliness is enjoyable, the defenders are squabbling at the same level as the boycotters, who may actually be succeeding in some form or another... XD
Spend 300 on a console i dont want? yea right
I'd be much happier if Bayo2 was never happening on any console rather than it happening on a console that lacks in certain departments.
The story here is what a tool this guy is. Most people don't give a sh*t about Bayonetta. I didn't even know a sequel was being made. Also, it isn't being made thanks to Nintendo, it's being made thanks to the fact that gamers like you will pay for it.
