I like how I have options to play Bayonetta. I have it on 360 (bc with XBO), WiiU and now PS4. I have most bases covered. Just need switch version.

All you need to know is it’s only 1440p on the enhanced consoles so it’s a pretty disappointing release for the premium user

Thought it was 4K? Watched video, apparently not. There is no reason why the systems should have the same res, disappointing. It looks good but I could tell it looked a bit more jagged than my other 4K titles

It’s advertised as 4K and the Xbox store listing and box has the “4K Ultra HD” logo, which is reserved only for native 4K games, games with dynamic resolution up to 4K, or games that use reconstruction to achieve 4K.

But nope. Bayonetta and Vanquish are neither of those. They’re just a straight 1440p on Pro and X. Such a wasted opportunity for such beloved games.

@darkwatchman tweet or contact Sega, hopefully with enough awareness they'll issue a patch, a bit annoyed I paid 40$ for something that does look better the original, but not nearly as good as I had hoped.

Not native 4k. So glad I didnt purchase these again. I'll just stick with my fantastic xbox 360 BC versions

Darkwatchman45d ago (Edited 45d ago )

Yes, this release is disappointing but Bayonetta is 4 times its 360 resolution and more so with vanquish which ran below 720p.

As for Vanquish framerate, the back compat version is capped at 30fps, but it’s 60 FPS in this remaster with the X holding the locked 60.

So you can say all you want about how you’ll stick to the old versions, but this new release is still better than any previous console iterations

I dont really care much for Vanquish but Bayonetta. The xbox 360 version was great and its 60fps on bc

gamer780445d ago

im holding off playing any more of it and see if they'll announce a patch or anything.

Darkwatchman44d ago (Edited 44d ago )

I just beat it and turns out the 3D model viewer is native 4K or at least it looks like it so I guess that’s how they got away with putting “4K Ultra HD” on the box 🤣🤣🤣

Darkwatchman45d ago

Yes Bayonetta is is 60fps through back compat already, but it’s still only rendering at 720p compared to 1440p, which while a disappointing resolution is STILL 4 TIMES the pixel count.

DF said some of the fonts are 4k, woohoo! lol
