Yes, but it wasn't until retailers marked it as a bombed title, meaning no ps360 gamer wanted to buy it at full price. So the core people who bought it around lauch are really small anyways. The bulk of them were just chancers, who probably won't buy Bayonetta 2 at full price on any console anyways.
Great ratings does not guarantees good sells, and high shipped units doesn't necessary means making any profit.

Real disappointed since i only have an Xbox 360, and honestly (probably just me) can't see myself to buy a whole new console just to play a game.

Even if it's Bayonetta

Well, if you liked Xenoblade, Monolithsoft seems to be cooking up something there too. That said, even with this announcement I won't get day one. Probably down the line at one point though.

Well, it is always wise to wait for the second batch if you can. I don't think there was ever a console anywhere that had issue-free hardware on release.

Nintendo is actually usually pretty good. There's a reason their hardware is said to be made of Nintendium. Never had an issue with, them onsole wise. Handhelds not so much. AT least DS, gameboy was borderline indestructable, that was litterally bomb proof.

Say, anyone tried anything apart from Platinum besides Bayonetta ? Might be one of the reason why they choose to side jump ship here.

I played Vanquish and that was pure awesome plan to pick up anarchy also. This is good news for platinum anyway, hope Vanquish 2 gets made.

Vanquish gets great reviews, but for some reason it didn't get the attention of people. Price dropped relatively quickly for it.

Max Anarchy kinda flopped in Japan because it's so multiplayer-centric.

The Gamecube technically had issues reading discs after 2-3 years, but then again even that was easy to fix by recalibrating the lens.

Platinum Games was never locked on any platform unlike other developers. Their initial title was MadWorld which was on the Wii, followed by Infinite Space on the DS before going multiplatform with Bayonetta, Vanquish, Arnarchy Reign & Metal Gear Rising Revengeance.

Never tried MadWorld but Infinite Space was pretty damn good sci fi RPG. Vanquish is pretty good and fun as well for their first foray into action shooter, definitely worth trying.

Bayonetta 2 is on Wii U mostly because of the Sega - Nintendo deal, Sega still owns the franchise. I believe Platinum is also contracted by Nintendo for The Wonderful 101 for the Wii U.

I don't think Platinum jumped ship, it's more of a business decision when it comes to their choice of platform

What you're sexist against her Lolipops too? Those were her healing items man. Geez man you're phobia against Bayonetta knows no bounds.

Personally I think Bayonetta looks like a Dyke with her random short hair but who cares it's just hair besides I have a feeling there's a reason behind the look and the source is the earrings, but Joan with long hair just looks weird. Gameplay wise looks just like the original sweet sweet gameplay of the prequel and that makes me happy.

the fact that it's WiiU exclusive does not
I just hope that other companies that didn't want to fund and saw potential to this game would fawn over Bayonetta 2

hating stripper pop's is better than calling a woman a dyke because of MEDIUM short hair. I happen to think it looks better than that idiotic tower of hair she had in 1. Agree on Joan with long hair tho. >_> just doesn't suit her, I liked her old hair.

I didn't see her hair reaching her shoulders. Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't shoulder length hair concerned medium while above the shoulders but fair enough to reach the neck considered short?

Bah!! Again who cares at least we can both agree that Joan's looks weird with long hair all of sudden. Either way as I mentioned before story wise there appears to be a reason behind the hair swap, so I'm willing to be open minded about it, and besides there will obviously be extra costumes of their original look for players who just can't get over their looks anyway.
