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.
Didn't he say the same thing to people asking about her in Smash Bros.? This guy seems like a bundle of joy lol.
Great, great people skills.
in relation to the title...it would have been funny if the pic was him flipping the bird instead of thumbs up.
@darthv72 Trust me when I tell you I looked for one lol.
This seems to be a very common response from him...
"Hey, we would like to play your game, too" "F*ck off!!" Real nice response.
Guy: "So is Bayonetta 2 still exclusive to Wii U?" Kamiya: "F#@K OFF!!!" Guy: "So you're saying it's possible?"
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.
"If some shmuck knocked on your door everyday asking if you take a crap on a golden toilet" Perfect analogy. /s
That made no sense, PopRocks
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
"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"
When the game does a lot better than all these Nintendo haters think, then u can **** off x2.
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.
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.
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.
@Fanboyssuck27 It's a joke...chill your bean
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.
"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.
@ 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.
@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.
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.
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.
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
You betting your life on a stupid matter like this? Dont take it personal, but do you even still have a life?
@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.
