Perfect Bayonetta Famitsu score reserved for 360 version

Wednesday, 21st October 2009 07:07 GMT By Patrick Garratt


As you can see from this ScrawlFX shot of the review section in the latest Famitsu, talk of Platinum’s Bayonetta receiving a perfect 40/40 in the mag was true. For the 360 version.

The PS3 game got a shameful 38/40. This will make the purest’s head explode. Does this mean Bayonetta has 39/40 overall? Or should the two versions be seen as separate entities?

You decide. Or just play the game and enjoy yourself. Whatever.

    Weird. Since when did Famitsu start handing out scores on a ‘per platform’ basis?

    They only ever do it when there’s a substantial difference in quality between versions.

    Perhaps it’s just me, but a two-point difference is scores doesn’t exactly sound like a ‘substantial difference in quality’. :-D

    Maybe they were paid more for the 360 review? ;)

    @substantial enough to warrant a different score, duh. It’s still the same great game obviously!

    It’d be interesting to get a translation of the reviews to see why they liked it so much, and why they felt the PS3 version needed a lower score.

    The PS3 version is noticeably inferior on a technical level.

    who the fuck does 40 out of 40 lmao. and really a perfect score for a DMC/bulletwitch game. yeaaa I think its push time yet again to see if 360 can at least get a pulse from being dead in Japan.

    I expect that the fact it wasn’t developed by Platinum games makes a massive difference.

    I don’t know what you’re talking about… see those faces on the left of the page? They’re all four reviewers, each giving their own score.

    Like in this one:
