Bayonetta just released in Japan and it's time to see if the PlayStation 3 version is really as broken as previous reports were making it out to be.
Crappy port, Fck you Sega and Platinum Games. Sorry but you are not getting my money.
a big thank you to sega for bringing back 2008 memories when developers didnt know how to handle the ps3, maybe u should stick with sonic or smthing, but when u decide to make a quality game, get better programmers, dont make a huge part of ur audience abondon ur game just coz u were lazy to port it
"but when u decide to make a quality game" It seems you have yet to play VC
i thought you fanboys LOVED sega for making Valkyria chronicles and yakuza 3? and how is Platinum games at fault here? they are strapped for cash, and developing for both ps3+360 would have been financial suicide. developing for the ps3 would have taken more money and time to get the hang of the architecture. so they went the SAFE route financially. also the game isn't that difference aside from some framerate hiccups. you can gloat about playing it with the Dualshock or something.
it is really sad to see some developers still miss the ps3 potential ???? is it too hard or are they too lazy to do a good port? with nutty dog solid work i am guessing the latter
Crappy port is crappy port. That's fact. But is the game any good? That's another story/topic. The same goes for Valkyria Chronicles.I only spoke of the "BAD PORT". Do not make up your own assumptions. I only complained about the port aspect. I do have my standards/principles. If they are not met then there's no buy for me. It's just as simple as that. By the way I do actually own Valkyria Chronicles and Virtua Fighter 5. Again "do not assume and stay on the topic" Edit: I said stay on the frigging topic, and now you are bringing in the score. Just because a reviewer gave it a 38/40, doesn't mean all reviewers we do the same besides review=opinion. Back to the port. Here the thing if I show you a black paper, and ask you which color is it? are you going to say white? No, you can't because it's obvious. Therefore CRAPPY PORT=CRAPPY PORT But reviews are not the same what might be fun to you might not be to others. Man, I'm tired.....
I think you guys should chill out, I think Sega just assigned the wrong team to port over Bayonetta from the Xbox360 bulid. Remember guys, Games with xbox360 as lead platform usually comes out bad on the PS3, while games with PS3 lead platform usually comes out good for both platforms which has been well expressed by Developers. And This is Sega were talking about. I dunno about you but Valkyria Chronicles was one of best games I played last year. And I can't wait for whenever they bring their DreamCast games on PSN along with Yakuza 3&4. Well, I'll wait til it releases here in the states to see if they fixed any of the issues present in the PS3 version before I even think of buying it.
Crappy port? Didn't the damn game get a 38/40? Or is this b1tching for the sake of b1tching?
It's not the fact of whether it's playable or not. It doesn't even have to do with the review score. It's all about the things the game suffered from through the port. hello? game sequences, graphics, and the total blame they put on SEGA as if they are in no part responsible for the ps3 version of the game. That is what is broken. The representation. And that is INFURIATING.
Don't waste your time, if is not a shooter, he doesn't know about other games or genres /jk http://www.rpgamer.com/game... http://www.gotps3.ru/files/...
I wanted this game but if they didn't care enough to make it as good as the 360 version, fuk em. I'll be play something else!
Crap port End of the story. Sega Already admited that its their Fault for this. stop the damage control.
im not contributing my money for this no matter what. its ridiculous that were in the end of 2009 and these idiots still dont get it, mainly Sega, of all game devs..
I agree with you, but it's not SEGA's fault as much as its Platinum Games. SEGA was the publisher, PG was the developer. Instead them working on both consoles, they literally worked on the 360 and give all assets to SEGA to do the PS3 port. I can't speak for anybody else, but that's not even laziness, that is being retarded. If there was financial issues it making the PS3 version, they could've easy made it a 360 exclusive. But they didn't, because they want to make as much money as possible seeing how Bayonetta is a new IP. Now I'm not going to front, I enjoy the the demo (PS3), but it's not enough for me to buy the game.
How can Sega screw this up. I thought Sega was good with ps3 games. Especially since they have some good games made by them like the Yakuza series and valkyria chronicles ?
when a game leads on the 360, things go beserk for the PS3 version of a game. its been said time after time again, if you want to make a multi-platform game, you either go PS3 lead, or built it from the ground up for each platform.
Doesn't prevent them for stupid ports like sonic unleashed ( laggy at times and hard to control on the pS3 ) let's hope that the 2D HD sonic one will be perfect on that part
The ps3 version is inferior im getting the 360 version
That is the truth right there... can you say.. damage control..
It's this or Darksiders in Jan (and Army of Two, woot!). I'll see if they make any tweaks come Jan, but I'll end up getting both eventually.
I'll probably check out the title, seeing as how Sega did a pretty good port.
"Wow, most of the people here didn't even read the article." Welcome to N4G.
platinum games had some weird code and sega couldnt port it right? i dont know..but after seeing the 1up video looks like it was just crap, but i dont get it VF5 look absoultely amazing for its time, now this? the demo is better than this game...geez
It's not broken its just that the 360 is just better than the PS3 version. And it should not be that big of a difference.
It's a quote =) Dno what the big hubub was about. @ above: People read the article please? Not just the title?
damage control is damage control
It's not Sega it's the crappy game developer. Whatever this game never deserved to be a "buy" anyway. I'm renting this just so I have the ability to say how much this game is overated.
it's like DMC4 but with a camera that isn't locked a majority of the time, played the demo long ago. fun game. it's a done deal, i already got my copy reserved.
I like this game only because it look better on Teh 360z !! Salez ftw
ahhhh it's good having multiple accounts :)
psh i aint gettin no game in this genre other than god of war III. i wont have to worry bout any of this. gow3 wil jus b jaw droppin so its all good for me =D
I just imported it today. Should have it in a week or so. The Japanese PS3 version is region free and all English except the printed manual. A friend of mine who lives in Japan is playing it right now! He loves it! So I ain't worried. I own both systems...just don't feel my 360 anymore. It's probably the lack of titles I want this past year. My fav genre is action/adventure....so I'll be getting GOW3 Ultimate edition, Darksiders, Dante's Inferno...all day 1's! When the new Castlevania? That this year?
Hope they fix some of the issues. There were a few issues in the demo when I was playing it. I still enjoyed the demo regardless.
Ah, it's good to be a dual-console owner.
Let me check...nope don't care...still not getting this game.
to see what's up with this game, too many awesome January games to play anyways!
Sorry, that comparison video awhile back revealed how TRULY bad the port really was. It's solid by standards but as a port, it failed completely. Loved to try out this game but I'll only get it for the 360 (if I ever get one).
if you want platinum to make games on the ps3, please purchase Bayonetta. Eventually, they will consider developing the games themselves.
Please buy the game dammit!
Stop treating gamers as fools, we all know PS3 version is crappy port
won't buy game of Platinum Games forever.
Why I should care or be in shock.A DMC clone with little to none of that elusive originality that breeds good games.Again,I care why? we are shocked and dismayed for what reason? It will be praised yet secretly avoided by a certain community.....
It hurts to admit it, but it is a DMC clone, the demo was crazy fun though (PS3). But I think I will pass on this one.
MattyF always does damage control or PS3 cheerleading.
As opposed to your unique blend of damage control spinning, so whats the difference?
You people need to stop whinning abit and look at the bright side. Ok I get it. No one wants a bad port or even a slightly intferior port on PS3. But if you only have PS3 or even if you dont have the 2 version side by side, then you will never know the difference, It still plays well and looks good enough, complaining that someone lese has it better wont solve anything I dont care that someone else has a bigger steak than me, as long as mine is big enough to fill me.
lol,it wont run as good as 360,so does that mean its 30 fps lol. whod wonna play a nerd girl with glasses anyway,just playn.
uhh so much hate, and almost everybody didn't even play demo. I think demo is good enought to buy game. You are whinning over few textures etc where game is actually good :) stop complaining and why so much hate toward sega ? It's not their fault that they aren't original developer of the game. if you thought that sega will do better or even equal as original team you have something wrong with you mind...
WTF with this People, if it`s DMC clone, who`s the one that make DMC, ISN`T Kamiya by him self ?? after he screwed by Capcom, and he can`t take DMC, I`m not blame him for doing this game, this`s what he wont.
developers loss of sales....if I were to buy it it would be for the 360, but this game releases around MAG, so many will not even care about this game...including me
the videos don't lie. the ps3 port was passed off and doesn't look as good. end of story.
FIFA 10 IS A TON BETTER ON THE PS3, BUT N4G DOESN'T SEEM TO HAVE A STORY ON THAT. I won't go as far as calling foul play, just saying that there is a little biased info on here at times. We all have our favorite, but in the end, PS3 fans (like myself) can't deny that Halo is a successful series, and Halo 1 and 3 were excellent! Now, about this Bayonetta garbage! I hear this all the time, and it JUNK...the multiplats run the same for both PS3 and 360. There is this "lag" crap, and I know for a fact (As I have played it) that Gears of War 2 has INSANE online lag and it's also filled with tons of glitches. Futhermore, I have played Call of Duty 4 on both systems, and there was NO lag on tHE PS3 AND amazingly...the game played the same. (WOW...imagine that!!) If the PS3, or 360 for that matter, have issues..the solution is simple. LOOK AT THE SYSTEMS SPECS BEFORE PORTING! Not to hate on Xbox 360, but the PS3 is has better construction, therefore more time SHOULD BE placed on their side of a multiplat game. It doesn't always happen (EXCEPT in Fifa 10 case), so you may find a glitch/lag or two....but, IT'S NO BIG DEAL.
In regards to the article, I don't want excuses. I want answers.
