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.

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.
andrewer  +   351d ago
@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.
darthv72  +   351d ago
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....
mikeslemonade  +   351d ago
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.

Gaming101  +   351d ago
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.
Sevir  +   351d ago
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.
Azuske  +   351d ago
@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.

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.

DragonKnight  +   351d ago
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.

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.
Mr_Writer85  +   351d ago
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.

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!

According to the article Twitter fans, I haven't seen anymore of the complaints since the original announcement.

@LOL_WUT

Hope the best for them as well, but I just don't see it doing anything on Wii U. It's just not a game for Nintendo's target audience, and with less than 5 million consoles sold, compared to the PS360 who both have over 60 million each at the time, and the game still only did 2 million, I just can't see it. 200k at most, so hopefully they had a low budget.
TwilightBites  +   351d ago
It's totally a game for nintendo's audience, its unique, fantastical, and over the top. Bayonetta herself is sexual, yea, buthardcore nintendo fans would eat up the bayonetta experience, unlike the ps3,xb360 audience did. I think it appeals way more to someone into smash bros than it does to someone into battlefield/GTA/forza/madden. ust a thought.

No PlayStation is the console for hack and slash games. Pretty much every hack and slash sells better on PlayStation, and one of Sony's top selling franchise is a hack and slash (god of war). Bayonetta has nothing in common with Smash bro.

I mean don't act like Nintendo are your saviours...yeah they funded it while others wouldn't but come on it's not like they did it from the goodness of their hearts. They needed third party software, they saw you guys needed funding, they swooped in and funded it, it's just good business that's all...however I still can't believe for a second though that after a FANTASTIC relationship with Konami with MGS Rising with great reviews and even sales that Konami wouldn't at least consider publishing the game for them...and I said at least consider.

I'm not saying that, don't see why your twisting things to something you want to see for the sake of an argument

I just find it funny how the only companies mentioned by then who said no are Microsoft and Sony. What about third party publishers...I haven't heard them talk about any of them...as I've said I find it hard to believe they didn't ask Konami even though they were working with them for ages on Rising. Did Konami not even consider it.

Why ask only two big companies like Sony/MS who are most likely to say no.

Wouldn't looking for a third party publisher net you and them more money in the end.

"Don't act like Nintendo is the only company that does anything for the sake of business."

I'm not calling them for that, again your looking for something which isn't there.

I'm just sick of PG thinking Nintendo are their saviours and even gamers when really they've given no evidence that they asked many people to publish it, again, they've only ever mentioned MS and Sony.

It's not really about the system for me....it's mostly about the controller. I don't think I could play with the Wii U Pad...even the Pro controller feels off to me...if the game supports B2 anyway.

I don't even think it has anything to do with fans disliking Nintendo. It has more to do with the fact that they're allowing Nintendo to fund this game exclusively, when there are 2+ million Bayonetta fans on PS360, and yet their best selling game on the Wii (that's a gory hack and slash like Bayonetta) was MadWorld and only sold 700k copies on a system with an install base of 100M.

What is Bayonetta 2 going to on the Wii U with a console that has a only 5% of the install base. Those 2+ million Bayonetta fans on PS360 aren't going to buy a Wii U just to play Bayonetta, so it just didn't make sense to get Nintendo to fund the game (even if they funded the entire project) and make it exclusive to Wii U, when you already have around 2 million potential sales for the PS360 or PS4 / XBO.

No, not "Allowing".
Everyone else but Nintendo declined to help the game become a reality due to the sales of the first game being low.
Then Nintendo swooped in and paid for every nickle and dime of its development and publishing, and in return, it is 100% a Nintendo game.

It's been said before, but it bears repeating:

It's with Nintendo because Nintendo saved the sequel from becoming vaporware.

That's the truth of it.

I think they are just happy they can make the game. I don't think they are upset that a game that normally wouldn't have seen the light of day can now exist even if it sees low sales. It is not like they had the pick of the litter or anything, and I'm sure they realize that going Nintendo only won't provide the best sales since they have games like wonderful 101 and madworld that already show this. I wish more devs would make games without caring too much about sales and more companies would give games like this life. But alas this is not a perfect world.
Neonridr  +   351d ago
@ABizzel1 - the Wii did not have an install base of 100 million when Mad World came out, probably more like half of that.

Secondly, we don't even have a release date for Bayo2. So in like 6-12 months the install base could be increased by a few million. Mario Kart is releasing in the spring. Don't forget how many consoles that game will move. The Wii version sold over 30 million copies.
ABizzel1  +   351d ago
@Wonderfulmonkeyman

Nintendo backed Bayonetta 2, because they wanted to get the core gamer back since they lost them with the Wii, we don't know who was willing to fund the game in any form, but we do know Nintendo is funding the game completely which in my eyes means Platinum took the complete buyout for funding, over any partial funding they may have been offered. There's no way in the world you can tell me that Kojima, Capcom, or any other interested party weren't willing to put up the money to at least partially pay to get a 50-50 deal on Bayonetta 2 after seeing it sell 2 million copies (aka $120 million) across the PS360.

They went with the easy option, of compete funding and now you have to sell a game to a fanbase of practically 0, unless your previous fans buy a Wii U. And to a console with a low install which proved countless times isn't the place for Rated M gory games.

@Neonridr

The Wii had 73 million consoles sold when MadWorld launched. The Wii sold most of it's consoles within the first 4 years, before it had a drastic drop in the 5th and 6th years, so no it didn't have an install base of 100 million at the time, but even then that means MadWorld had a 0.1% attach rate.

There's no debating that gory hack and slash isn't for the Nintendo audience.

@truechainz

I agree, I don't think they realized, just how upset people would be. I'm getting the impression that all they want to do is make games. But they're saying they couldn't get the funding and Nintendo provided, but look at what happened to MadWorld. I mean it just doesn't make sense to put this type of game on a Nintendo Platform.

The Wonderful 101, I get it (but look at those sales 10k, even Pikmin 3 is struggling at 60k). Viewtiful Joe, I get it. Okami, I get it. Metal Gear Revengance, I get it off name brand alone.

Bayonetta & MadWorld, I just don't get it, and obviously Nintendo fans didn't either when it came to MadWorld and with an even lower install base than when MadWorld released (73m vs less than 5m now) I don't see Bayonetta doing any better for them.

They're great developers, but they need to be bought out by someone who can conduct great business, and get them where they should be.

It's a shame Platinum didn't get enough sales of Bayonetta to justify a multiplatform sequel, but I give Nintendo credit for helping Platinum make the game. I can understand how it would get frustrating to constantly see people asking for a game on their system and knowing that it can't happen, although I would like to think I'd be flattered by the interest for my game.
ABizzel1  +   351d ago
I don't see how they didn't get enough sales. It sold almost 2 million copies, and that's excluding digital sales and sales well after it's release.

It seems like Japanese studios have a serious problem with budgeting their games and understanding real-life sales expectations.

On top of that moving exclusively to the Wii U isn't going to help them when the console has less than 5 million sales WW. That means 50% of Wii U owners need to buy the game to match the PS360 sales.

Thankfully I'm covered, since I have a Wii U, but it's still a smack in the face to the PS360 owners especially the PS3 owner who bought the inferior port of the game which still produced the majority of it's sales.

As a developer your heart shouldn't let you do something like that knowing it's not right. I understand it's a business, but it's ALWAYS bad business to piss off your fans especially when they control your income and the success of your product.

That's like a musician saying F@#$ my fans. Your career is pretty much dead, besides sponsorship (in this case Nintendo). However, gamers are fortunately more forgiving then casual listeners of music (so best of luck Platinum).
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   351d ago
You say it's a smack in the face, but I don't feel "smacked" at all.

I didn't allow my pride to get in the way of me getting a PS3 for games like Bayonetta.
Instead of making boycot threats or arguing about it online, I sucked it up, saved up, and got one of the systems the game was developed for.

I did the smart thing, and became a multiplatform gamer, instead of spending my hours online crying about not having Bay 1 and other fantastic games come to the Wii.

I have happily picked up a Wii U for precisely the same reason; games like Bayonetta, X, Smash and The Wonderful 101 amongst many others.

Eventually, I'll have a PS4 as well.

IMO, all the people complaining that it's not on their console of preference, should just save up and go multiplatform.

If they can't justify it or if their pride won't allow it, then I guess the sequel doesn't really matter as much to those "fans" as they claim it does, and their cries of "unfair" should be discarded.

Oh, and IMO, Bay 1 deserved more sales than it got. I dunno why PS360 fans bought so few copies...
I'm replaying it right now, actually. Still just as good as always.

"As a developer your heart shouldn't let you do something like that knowing it's not right. I understand it's a business, but it's ALWAYS bad business to piss off your fans especially when they control your income and the success of your product."

The problem that I have with this sentiment, and you aren't the only one to have it, is that the game would not have been made if Nintendo hadn't stepped in. I don't understand how you can feel like you've been slapped in the face by the exclusivity deal because it's the only way the game was going to get made. Nintendo is literally helping fund the creation of the game, I don't begrudge them one bit for wanting to keep it on their platform.

As for the cost of developing a game, it's an industry wide problem - not just Japanese studios. First party studios have somewhat of a security blanket that most third party developers don't. Plus, the cost to produce and market a AAA game has bloated to the point that it's very difficult to make a healthy, sustainable problem. Hopefully, the ease of development for this cycle is much more manageable and even better development tools are created so it takes a lot less effort to make a great looking game. If it continues to take a lot of time and resources to make AAA quality visuals, then the industry will face a serious problem. But I'm getting off topic here...

Almost selling 2 million on multiple platforms is not good.
ABizzel1  +   351d ago
@Wonderfulmonkeyman

It's great to be able to own all consoles, but in the real world everyone can't afford multiple consoles especially in the beginning of the console generation where most consoles are still full price and $300 - $500.

And in the real world it's hard to justify buying a console for 1 or 2 games, especially considering the Wii U still lack many features that gamers would expect to have after moving on from the PS3 and 360.

Bayonetta sold over 1 million copies on PS3, and almost 1 million on 360. The problem is the PS3 versions was a completely inferior port with framerate drops, muddy graphics, screen tearing, and longer load times which the 360 version didn't have, because the PS3 version was a port made by Sega while Platinum made the game on 360.

That's a slap in the face to your fans, 2 million people bought this game on their console of choice, and more than likely they're upgrading to the successor of their console, and now you're telling them nope if you want to play it buy a Wii U.

It's just a ignorant business mindset, if someone offers you a free deal (Nintendo), but at the cost of alienating the majority of your entire fanbase (Platinum), then that's a deal you should pass on, and look for someone else. Or at least give your fans an explanation on why there was no one else winning to pick or even partially fund the game (as a matter of fact fans start asking Konami / Kojima, Capcom, etc... if Platinum came to them).
ABizzel1  +   351d ago
@McScroggz

Where did I say I feel like I've been slapped in the face? I've said countless times I have a Wii U, my comment was how the other 2 million gamers must feel who can't, don't, or won't get a Wii U just to play Bayonetta.

Yes Nintendo paid for, and for Nintendo it should be exclusive. But for Platinum that was a stupid thing to do, towards your 2 million fans. If you can't see that then I don't know what else to say to you. They have no Bayonetta fanbase on a Nintendo platform, because the game never released on Wii (although they said it's possible), so why release the sequel to a game only multiplatform gamers could have played, on a console that has an install base of less than 5 million, to an audience who for the most part doesn't enjoy gory games, that only bought 700k copies of the last gory action game you made on Wii which had a 100 million install base, and expect fans to be happy about this. NO. If it's that big of a deal for fans then go find out who Platinum games pitched it to and see why the deals were declined.

@vakarian75

Selling 1 million copies of a game is above average for plenty of studios, and a profit for most of their games. Platnium was only going to release Bayonetta on the 360, so what kind of sales did they expect in the first place? Then Sega made a bad port for the PS3 and it still ended up being the best selling version, so again what kind of sales did you expect. Being realistic with your potential sales is something the Japanese (Tomb Raider, and other games) and many other developers seem to struggle with, because they're caught up in what they've made rather than what the market buys. Looking at the sales of similar hack and slash games show the genre show that these games on average sell 1 million copies per console (at least on PS3 and 360). So off the top as a developer and publisher you should be expecting the same sells for your game if it's on par with those other games like Devil May Cry, Ninja Gaiden, etc... and budget your balance to $30 million at most since your game is likely to bring in $120 million back in sales (aka 4 times the budget). If you're not thinking like that then that's your fault and you need to hire a financial executive for your team to handle budget and sales expectations.

Selling 2 million of anything at $60 market value should be a success. H#!! even PS3 exclusives that didn't break 500k were still considered a success, because they know how to monitor their budget for the expected sales.

Depends on the deal between Nintendo and Sega. Nintendo put a lot of money into the development of this game and I doubt they would let it slip that easy without sealing some kind of deal.

Also, Sega doesn't care about the series. They were going to let it die, so I doubt they would spend more money porting something that wasn't going to sell well. If I remember correctly, the first game didn't do so well.
BISHOP-BRASIL  +   351d ago
It sold more than 2 million, way better than half the crap Sega released this last gen.
Tontus  +   351d ago
What people are forgetting when mentioning that Bayonetta sold 2 million on PS3 + 360 is that 50%+ of those sales were at bargain bin prices. It may have sold a decent amount of copies but it took too long at a price too low for Sega to make much or any profit from the game.

However, Sega should have taken the risk of making Bayonetta 2 on PS3 + 360 (and/or even PS4 + X1) since the fan-base was already established and with 2 million copies sold and however many people buying the game pre-owned it had everything going for it to be a success.

They would've had a few million potential customers but they gave up on the series and Nintendo is giving it a second chance but it will fail miserably on the Wii U thus killing the series forever all because Sega wouldn't take a risk.

It might have more to do with people not wanting to get a console that's not going to be supported.
Honestly, the Wii U is a nice system, but there is no third party support or when there is a third party game, it's gimped in some way and if both the PS4 and X1 keep selling like they are, third parties won't even glance at the Wii U.
R00bot  +   351d ago
If you want the game to come to other systems then you're taking some of it's exclusive support and making it an even harder sell. Every time a good exclusive comes around to a Nintendo console the fans on other consoles try to ruin its exclusivity (see Rayman Legends), and hurt the console's sales.
AHall88  +   351d ago
@R00bot
The problem with Bayonetta is that it was never an exclusive to anyone before, it was multi-platform, bi-platform?, and the sequel all of a sudden is an exclusive to a platform it was never on before.
So it's very understandable that a large percentage of the series' fans don't want to get a platform they have no interest in, outside that one single game.
wonderfulmonkeyman  +   351d ago
Then get both a Wii U AND a PS4 or X1.
It might not be getting games like The Witcher 3, but by the same token, the others aren't getting Bay 2, Sonic Lost World, The Wonderful 101, and others coming in the future as well.

It won't sell. The install base on the Wii U is tiny and all people really want is more Nintendo games. Even then it's hard for those to sell too.

Why aree you talking about the Wii?

Super Mario 3D World has already sold over 700K copies worldwide in only a few weeks. It will continue to sell well on Wii U just as the other games I've mentioned. Mario Kart 8 will sell the same way in 2014 once it's released.

Bayonetta 2 could sell well on Wii U as it's being pushed by Nintendo and won't have many similar games to compete against. We'll see what kind of push Nintendo gives it in 2014. Some PS3/360 fans of Bayonetta 1 may buy it too especially those who are also Nintendo fans.

Part of the hype around this coming to Wii U is that Nintendo is moving in a different direction by releasing it. That's what gamers want from them and it's a departure from the usual Mario, Donkey Kong, Zelda etc. We'll see how it sells but it's in a category pretty much without competition on the Wii U - at least from a 1st party perspective.
Not a fan of this franchise, but they can't honestly expect the game to sell well. This was a bad decision on both Nintendo's and Platinum Game's part. If they think that bayonetta fans will buy a wii u for the sake of this game they're sorely mistaken.

The Wii outsold the competition last gen, & Wii-U was rushed into the market to clean up on early sales fast, before the competition came knocking....I don't think Nintendo would have had a hard time convincing Platinum to go exclusive...It's not likely Nintendo have funded development of the game, as Nintendo would never do that, BUT, they may pay for publishing rights, as well as paying for marketing.

I think Platinum made a huge mistake, as they have really limited there sales.....Bayonetta was PS3 & Xbox, & many of those consumers will buy either PS4 or XBone, & will not buy a Wii-U just for Bayonetta 2.
I honestly would prefer Platinum to do a totally new IP, as Bayonetta was awesome, kind of similar to playing the 1st Devil May Cry on PS2...But, like with DMC, the sequels just didn't seem as great, & they became those stale type games that you though, I've been there & done all this, & it was bigger & better & fresher the 1st time. Hope I'm wrong, as it's ONE of the only games I'm looking out for on my Wii-U.

Lol. Ubisoft screwed up with that idea if you ask me. Not only did they lose many potential sales over that whole Rayman Legends delay bullshit, but they lost consumer trust as well, mine included.
But I bet that's okay, right?
And I guess it's funny that the Wii U version still outsold BOTH Ps3 and 360 versions of the game.
And lel. Just cause you don't like/want the game, doesn't mean many others dont otherwise I wouldn't see all these Sony or Microsoft players crying about pirting Bayonetta 2. Seems like more than a 'few'whiners to me.

I mean come on.I don't see why people get so enraged about Bayonetta.Everyone who says they hate it or say it is no big deal gets attacked especially now it is on the Wii U.I personally with out any type of fanboyism DO NOT like that game.It sold two million across two consoles and the PC and people are still trying to say that it did well.That isn't even a million units for each console.And now when ever people say that they don't care people believe that you are lying or doing it because you hate Nintendo.

News flash.Why does everyone think suddenly the second one will be more popular when most people barely even bothered with the first one? If Sony suddenly got the rights to make Okami 2 for instance I would never expect it to do any better despite it being a very good game.People whined forever about MGS4 and no one jumped to put the fanboys in their place or said they were tired of the whining.Suddenly now it is such a big deal because Nintendo has Bayonetta and everyone is being rude and impolite and EVERYONE HATES NINTENDO.I am really embarrassed for people who are whining for the new one.There are tons of things I want to see sequels for and people are whining about something that wasn't even able to match DMC in popularity because they told you you can't have it? I bet if it was in reverse and PlayStation people were getting it only and we were boasting about it Nintendo people would be telling us how it didn't matter and how they don't need Bayonetta.

But all gamers are the same.They just love to hold things over you and pretend they are so insulted and indigent while they are really squirming with glee to see you beg and plead and as soon as you do it back to them they want to cry about how you are picking on them.And ask for Platinum games have some balls for goodness sake.Who cares if people are begging? Just ignore them just like many other companies has done to the endless begging gamers do.Take a cue for the MGS crew

MGS4 is going to come out on the Xbox One. You heard it here first. If it doesn't, then ummm, it will definitely for sure 100% gauranteed come out on the Xbox One Two.

People really love to hate nintendo, and worse, anyone who supports nintendo. As rude as you people are, you cant even be mad when a developer gets annoyed and gives you a taste of your own medicine.

And the crying continues.Nintendo people crying about exclusivity it almost as annoying as the people crying for Bayonetta 2.It's the same thing when people said that Rayman couldn't be for Nintendo alone and they cried a river.Always in tears about everyone hating Nintendo.Poor dears.

I don't blame this guy for getting pissed. The game would NOT exist without Nintendo's funding. It was a "scratch my back, I'll scratch yours" situation. It doesn't mean they forgot their fans. Platinum just have to play by Nintendo's rules. If you want to beg anyone beg Nintendo to sell the publishing rights to another company.

Shut up and buy a Wii U if you want the game. Real gamers don't limit themselves to one console. Ya I'm a Ninty fan boy but I own all consoles . Don't complain
