  • Borderlands “Superbowl” ad is pretty, uh, unusual

    Borderlands developer Gearbox considered taking out a Superbowl commercial, apparently.

    Kind of a bummer that Bayonetta Platinum trophy is on my PSN profile and now Bayonetta 2 won’t be sitting there. Well, I guess third party sites like PlayFire come to rescue here.
    That said, I wonder how many games for Wii U I will get overall. As soon as PS4 launches I’ll be moving to Sony side for multiplatform titles again.

    #33 2 years ago
  34. Cangriman

    @29 Demon’s Souls case is different because Sony do own the DS Ip, but Nintendo doesn’t own the Ip of Bayonetta. Now since Nintendo is publishing the title I think there is a good chance it won’t be on another console.

    I think Nintendo did it really well, it secure it in Japan with Mario, Pikmin, Monster Hunter, and Dragon Quest X. I’m expecting good sale because all these title are killer app. Europe and US with Mario, ZombieU, and now Bayonneta 2. Still not enough for now but we will have to see if there are more surprises.

    Nintendo’s publishing Ninja Gaiden 3 for Wii U, but that doesn’t mean it was exclusive…

    I think is safe to say, that nintendo will be publishing a lot of hardcore games, in order to bring them to the WiiU, therefore they can avoid the Wii situation all over again, i think they took the right approach, hope they will do the same with the majority of multiplatform games, i mean the major and important ones to the avid / core audience.

    #38 2 years ago
  39. Malmer

    Guess the game will come out at late 2013 the earliest. Maybe even 2014. And then there are next-gen consoles available.

    #39 2 years ago
  40. NeoSquall

    Thinking about that, maybe the game could be published on the next gen consoles in a similar way that CD Projekt RED intended to distribute the 360 version of The Witcher 2 trough THQ instead of Namco Bandai.

    Of course PG must have put this possibility clearly in the publishing contract with Nintendo to avoid facing a lawsuit they couldn’t possibly win.

    Holy mother of fuck. Ok, now Wii I has 2 must have exclusives (First being Rayman Origins).

    @53, the gameplay is much better (although harder) than God of War, the story and voice acting on the other hand were repugnant.

    I would play another Bayonetta game provided the gameplay was as good, but I wouldn’t buy an entire new system for it. It’s a step in the right direction for the Wii-U though, it’s a stroke in the “maybe” column, but they will need more than 1 game like this (assuming it’s a genuine exclusive and not a pathetic 2 month timed exclusive or something along those lines) to convince me the money is not better spent on a new GPU for my PC.

    I didnt like the demo at all, I was expecting it to be more like GoW. But I grew to like it when I finally played the full game. Had some amazing bosses, never seen anything quite like them before. Having said that I havent finished it yet, must go back to that one, might need to start it again I will have forgotten how to play.

    #58 2 years ago
  59. Clupula

    Bayonetta and God of War are very different playstyles in the same genre. Bayonetta can be compared more to Devil May Cry, as far as gameplay goes. If you like the Devil May Cry games, you’ll probably learn to really enjoy Bayonetta. If you don’t and prefer the God of War-type games, may I suggest Dante’s Inferno and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.

    @33 The SNES had a shitload of third party exclusives

    Seems a nice coup for Nintendo getting Bayonetta 2 but still not enough for me to get a Wii U, not at the price they are asking for it

    I’ll just wait a year or less for it to be released on the PS3 or 360.

    Read the headline. Its published by Nintendo. You won’t be seeing it on any of those systems.

    ^ Published doesnt mean much, they dont own the IP. A “Bayonetta 2: Under Title” on another console is far from impossible.

    #86 2 years ago
  87. Phoenixblight

    Nintendo is not the type of publisher that let their games go on other consoles. Platinum could indeed make another Bayonetta but you won’t see this version on other consoles, that’s my point.

    Its not “their” game though, because they dont own the IP.

    It is their game. Nintendo funds the production of the game it becomes their game. All the assets that are made under Nintendo’s banner it becomes theirs. Much similar to the original Mass Effect for the Xbox.

    If there is a game that you really want, isn’t that the very definition and reason behind buying a system in the first place? Are you guys that bullheadly fanboys that you would look a good system and good games in mouth and turn away because of the logo on the box?

    Thats funny. And a little bit sad.

    I can see waiting for more good games. But I have a saying, more of a rule really. And that sying is: “It only takes one.” That is one amazing game that i want to play to justify the system. Could be Halo(thats why I bought Xbox one), it could be SSX(thats why I bought a PS2), could be Warhawk(bought my PS3 because of it), whatever it is. But if you see one solid must have game, and you leave it sitting on the shelf because your not able to get over yourself and brand loyalty, then I dare say your not a real gamer.

    I can fully understand budgets and having to make a value based purchase, where instead of one game, you need ten or twenty, because you can only buy one system. But I don’t think that is the case for some of us.

    Or Ninja Gaiden.

  92. Phoenixblight


    Good try Tecmo is the publisher who funded the production. Nintendo is the one that is publishing a game that has already released and they are trying to fix improve so it works with the Wii U.

    #92 2 years ago
  93. absolutezero

    I was actually meaning Ninja Gaiden 1 and 2 which were published by Microsoft. Ninja Gaiden 2 in particular.

    #93 2 years ago
  94. Phoenixblight


    “The Sigma team’s solution to these problems is quite ingenious. It simply rebuilt the whole game completely from scratch with its own engine, “remixing” Ninja Gaiden 2 to play more to the strengths of the PS3 hardware. It’s a situation only seen before a handful of times in previous cross-platform projects (Oblivion and Enemy Territory: Quake Wars spring to mind).”

    Also Microsoft and Tecmo were publishing it.

    #94 2 years ago
  95. absolutezero

    It did exactly what someone else mentioned earlier on in this thread.

    It took a game published and funded by a platform holder and released it on a rival console with a subtitle.

    I don’t see where the confusion is here.

    #95 2 years ago
  96. Phoenixblight


    Read the quote I provided. Team Ninja made SIgma 2 from scratch; engine, assets and all to fit with the PS3. Its not the same game. It looks the same but Team Ninja put in as much effort as they did to make the same game on a different system. Most studios would just go make another game altogether. Platinum Studios can do that but that is up to them to completely remake the game so it is multiplatform.

  97. Custard Ganet

    This never would have sold massive numbers on 360 or PS3 anyway,Its not a massive deal that would matter to the average gamer i guess,not like nabbing an exclusive GTA or COD title.Still a smart move by Nintendo,really excited to see more of this.
