That's good news, because the monster looked quite impressive, and if this rendered in real time with the game engine, then I don't think we'll have to worry about what kind of visuals the Wii U can pump out..

Ck1x2444d ago

I agree! If this is any indication of What Platinum Games may show off at e3 of Bayonetta 2. People are going to be really shocked at how WiiU games stack up against the PS4 & 720. Especially since people are now using photos of the GPU die to now say that it's weaker than both the PS3&360... Most of the things they are guessing at are custom designed and they have no clue what this chip is capable of, or its functions. But they still guess anyways. Next they will come out and say WiiU is just 4 GameCubes duct-taped together. Lol

bryam19822444d ago

We havent see how the graphics that ps4 and xbox720 are going to be which i believe are going to be way better than this

MmaFan-Qc2444d ago

well, we cant say that the Bayonetta 2 video was impressive, in fact it was pretty minimalist and barely showed us something.

nothing to be hyped really, if you played the first game... you know exactly what you will get.

now lets hope that the game wont bomb like MadWorld did simply because its not where the target audience is.

metroid322444d ago

Here the gpu is officially the.


simple as that there was no need for the tear down it has 32 MB Edram for both gpu and cpu,2GB RAM,it has a GPGPU,Memory intensive design,Iwata said all this ages ago,so couple this with my link and that Mayamoto's words that he believes the cpu isn't weak and seing Xenoblade and Beyonetta2 ect it's not a HD4670 ????

JP13692444d ago

Sorry, but most of that image in cloaked in shadow. Not exactly proof of power.

Ritsujun2443d ago

Don't get mad when PS3&X360 get Bayonetta 2 HD Edition few years later and PS4&X720 Bayonetta 2 VHD Edition, just like many of those 3rd party Nintendo exclusives.

corrus2443d ago

PS4 specs the real specs

System Memory: 8GB
Video Memory: 2.2 GB
CPU: 4x Dual-Core AMD64 "Bulldozer" (so, 8x cores)
GPU: AMD R10xx
Ports: 4x USB 3.0, 2x Ethernet
Drive: Blu-Ray
HDD: 160GB
Audio Output: HDMI & Optical, 2.0, 5.1 & 7.1 channels

AsimLeonheart2443d ago (Edited 2443d ago )

WTH?? That is just a one second clip of... something. We dont get to see any textures, lighting, FPS, details or animation. Why are you getting excited for this? Come on Nintendo fans, you need to try harder to prove that your console is also powerful.

TheGrimReaper2443d ago

Photos of the GPU die suggest that is around 1.5 times more powerful than the GPU of Xbox 360. People are saying this and not that it is weaker than PS3 & 360.
And as for the CPU: It's a tuned Wii CPU which itsef was a tuned GameCube CPU.
The comment "just 4 GameCubes duct-taped together" isn't that ridiculous ;)

Wii U IS more powerful than PS3&360. Anybody who is denying that has to be a fanboy imho.
BUT thinking Wii U will be as powerful as PS4/720 is a different topic. IF the rumored specs are true, Wii U will be way behind in terms of raw processing power.
Let's wait for E3 before jumping conclusions...

Im actually happy for nintendo fans....I hope this games is amazing so you guys finally get somthing to play

And if its good they will do bayonetta 3

WiiUsauce2444d ago

^ this type of comment is unheard-of on N4G, the Sony fanboy hangout site. lol

Deku-Johnny2444d ago (Edited 2444d ago )

An actual positive comment towards Nintendo and it's fans on N4G? Am I dead? *Bubble vote added*

Ritsujun2443d ago

Yup they should be glad that they're finally getting a non-casual game.
Aren't they sick of those Justin Bieber games? Oh god.

CalvinKlein2443d ago

lol that isnt positive tho. Its stealth trolling saying they "finally have something to play."

Kinda like the ps3 this year after all the casual crap released last year for it, finally some good games, not casual nintendo wanna be games. I hope that last of us is good because all this casual kiddy ps3 exclusives are killing me. If I wanted nintendo games Id have bought a wii or a wiiU.

nintendoland2443d ago

"finally get something to play." You lost it there

aceitman2444d ago

I can't believe that people are going by that 2second clip . That shows nothing just wait till real gameplay trailer is out to judge.

LOL_WUT2444d ago

I know right? They are grasping at straws. The monster at the end (which is only 2 seconds of video) is being praised? People it's not like we haven't seen this throughout this whole gen. ;)

StraightedgeSES2444d ago

Well if you took time to read the article the director of the game confirmed that it was real time.

ElectricKaibutsu2444d ago

Honestly, all I can tell is it's pretty dark. At least it's shiny(?)! I have no doubt the game will look good, but let's just wait until E3, shall we?

BullyMangler2444d ago (Edited 2444d ago )

Yep .. i got a ps3, but still want to play the 1st beyonetta . Whys it gotta fail on the ps3?, and why does not fail on 360? . . And why did the game devs say that the 1st boss will feel like the last? . Hek does dat mean? . . Nintendos pissing off a lot of peeps with all their exclusives and innovation. . . Or maybe just the fanboys and girls

The trailer was a joke. wii U is joke of 8th console generation.

SilentNegotiator2444d ago (Edited 2444d ago )

There's really nothing impressive about what little was shown being real-time.

Were there even ANY background/scenes being fully rendered? Plus, there really wasn't GAMEPLAY and gameplay uses a lot of processing power for programming.

They're really grasping at straws with a strawman-esqe argument.
The real issue: Is it impressive at all? No, hardly anything was fully rendered and there wasn't gameplay.
Strawman: Wowiez! It's real time!

WiiUsauce2443d ago

lol so many haters in the comments. Why do you guys hate Nintendo so much? You guys act as if Nintendo snuck into your room in the middle of the night and raped you for you guys to hold such a grudge over the company LOL.

Apex132443d ago

I wonder that very thing and I bet a lot of them started with Nintendo.

Personally, they dare to be different and their games are better built then the other 2 which is why I always will have their system. I will compliment it with one of the others as there is never much differences bar exclusives.

showtimefolks2443d ago

This argument about how powerful won't die till we know the specs for ps4 and next Xbox

I am happy Nintendo has finally joined rest of the world in HD era but as a fan of ps and Xbox I do believe both systems will be more powerful than wii-u.

3rd party support where is it? Why are so many 2013 games not showing up on wii-u?

We see a trailer and all of the sudden we know what wii-u is capable of? God of war has huge boss fights so hats doesn't mean much.

This may seem like a hate comment but it's not. Nintendo is great at making quality 1st party games but to be successful this time around hey are gonna need 3rd party support. But this wii-u isn't what wii was so everyone isn't going nuts and buying one.

That casual crowd has moved on to utter systems to mobile gaming but core market is here and for Nintendo to have any chance of competing with ms and Sony they gonna need to get their acts together and get 3rd party publishers on board. Easier said than done

HERE IS A FUN FACT, THE LAST SYSTEM FROM NINTENDO TO GET GREAT 3RD PARTY SUPPORT WAS SNES. Now let that sink in because SNES was a long long time ago.

Whether ts right or wrong but Nintendo's systems have a long history of being looked as kids or family friendly gaming systems. So M rated games automatically are set up to fail

herbs2443d ago (Edited 2443d ago )

I ran out of bubbles on the Wii U GPU discussion so I'm going to post this here. Digital Foundry and Eurogamer made it sound like they had the GPU specs nailed down 100% but they are infact making some assumptions and there are still some very big??? It's super lame when sites jump the gun like this just for hits on there site because they know the fanboys will eat it up.
This video sums it up eloquently...

Starfox172443d ago (Edited 2443d ago )

Everything from the level design and the sheer scope of Beyonetta 2 makes the 1st one look like a ps2 game to be honest.

deafdani2443d ago

And you say that based on... what, exactly?

Munnkyman2443d ago

Um what footage are you lookin at lol. This game will be Greta but no real footage has come yet

hopefully it looks & plays better than the 1st.. i need to see gameplay before i can say anything about this.. The wii u isnt as strong as people think

Qrphe2444d ago

"hopefully it looks better than the 1st"

You must've played it on the PS3.


As far as the video, at no moment did it look CG to me.

This guy... -_-

Everyone knows that games built from the ground up on any console always have an advantage over multiplats. This looks amazing yet he still finds a way to knock it. smdh... Anyway, pure awesomeness!

DivineAssault 2444d ago

dont matter.. Wii u isnt nx gen period.. Last of us looks amazing.. God of war looks amazing, beyond 2 souls looks amazing, etc.. Dont mean theyre nx gen games.. Sony will prolly get this game like they do the rest in due time

profgerbik2444d ago (Edited 2444d ago )

Most "fans" are blind followers of course not all of them but I guess that is where the word fan came from, just look at the Super Bowl.

There is nothing wrong with not liking the first game.

It was far from impressive and it got plenty of very mixed reviews and I can almost bet you will find more people who disliked the game versus to those who thought it was amazing.

In terms of graphical achievements Bayonetta was never anything to talk about, so I have no idea why people disagree with that but it's those same people who will be in another Nintendo thread talking about how they don't care about graphics but are always so quick to defend them.

I personally don't think the 2nd one is even really something to talk about graphically. These people must not have seen or played Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, it is made by the exact same developers and shows far more graphical prowess over Bayonetta 2 on the Wii U but I am sure just because it's not on the Wii U this will get mad disagrees.

When it's proven over and over again the Wii U is practically on the same level if not slightly below the PS3's which MGR is on.

As they say you can't talk sense into the senseless.

OmegaSlayer2443d ago

Nintendo fanboys are desperate because WiiU will probably be the last Nintendo console and 3rd party devs won't even consider making gamnes on the platform.

YoungPlex2444d ago

Whatever helps you sleep at night! Wii U is indeed a next gen console. Now if you are looking at it from a graphical point of view then that's fine, but if your looking at it as a whole then of course it is! Do you really think that anyone in their right mind wouldn't buy a game like Bayonetta 2 or X because Uncharted 40 or GOW 17 comes out on PS9!? Maybe you wont but unlike you most gamers buy games for playability not strictly for graphics. Give it up man!

TheBlackSmoke2444d ago

Actually the reason Bayonetta 2 is exclusive is because no one bought the first one. Its not a system seller.

And trying to undermine uncharted and god of war like they are not good games makes your opinion invalid. Did you know it is possible to have amazing graphics AND great gameplay...oh wait your a nintendo fan nvm..

Wii u is not next gen, just wait until ps4/nextbox come out and you come to the realisation developers arent making wii u games anymore, hell even now they are leaving it out with curent gen multiplats.

RedDeadLB2444d ago

judging from the screens the monster doesn't look all that detailed, it's just heavy on specular maps as far as I can tell. But still, I'm interested. We'll see in the future just how it turns out.

Blacklash932444d ago (Edited 2444d ago )

With the dark lighting from the environment it's impossible to tell how detailed it is. You would barely be able to see in it that scene if it weren't for the specular maps. If it isn't that detailed, it could be just becuase you won't see it it anything but dark lighting. Likewise, no way to tell.

But really, this is just a very brief moment of footage in a darkly lit level in a far from finished build. There's no way we can scutinize it to judge or get an impression of Bayonetta 2 or its graphical quality.

RedDeadLB2444d ago

That's what I said, we'll just have to wait and see how graphically impressive it is.

Considering it's just a monster in a room with nothing in it practically, during gameplay it might not look as well as everyone would hope.

But again, we'll see. When is this supposed to release anyway?

Kaiou2444d ago (Edited 2444d ago )

CG? that is a lot of aliasing for a CG , come on!!. (not that it looks bad)

stuna12444d ago

There sure is a lot of flip-flopping going on in these threads! Reminds me of a fish on the deck of a fishing boat.

There will be improvements of course, but they will be minimalistic at best! Like someone said above due to what is being shown, anything can look good if it's in a room by itself, and me playing the original Bayonetta personality, it's not like it was a graphical beast to begin with! Of course I'd expect there to be some that would disagree with me.

The preview of the game X would be more apt to get my blood pumping as far as anything I've seen on the WII U thus far.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney2444d ago (Edited 2444d ago )

Seeing that they showed wire frame I am pretty sure it was real time.

I wasn't blown away by anything but I am sure it will be good.

Now we need to find out if nintendo only gamers want the game seeing that never played it.
