    Platinum Games Creative Director Kellams Tired of people begging for Bayonetta 2 ports

    Platinum Games Creative Director Is Fed Up With Bayonetta 2 Port Begging | My Nintendo News


    Platinum Games creative director JP Kellams has revealed on Twitter that he is fed up with Microsoft and Sony gamers requesting that Bayonetta 2 be ported to the Xbox and the PlayStation. Kellams says that anything he posts on the Bayonetta 2 Facebook page turns into requests to port the Wii U exclusive to the Xbox and the PlayStation. Here’s what he had to say on Twitter.

    “I hate posting anything Bayonetta 2 on our Facebook. Not because I hate Bayonetta 2, but because I hate the pedantic port-begging.”

    “It’s been over a year since we announced. We heard you. We get it. We are just happy that we get to make Bayonetta 2 for the patient fans.”

    Didn't he say something about it not even being his decision? That it was Nintendo that's funding the development?

    nintendo 100% funded the project (similar to how microsoft funded Dead rising 3.)


    aka no port unless nintendo gives the go-ahead.

    though to be honest i wouldn't be suprised if nintendo bought platinum games at some point. both companies love each other (nintendo is giving them ton of freedom, PG wants to make nintendo games for them, etc.)

    More of a reason for me to buy a Wii U (Among other reasons, such as Wonderful 101, Wind Waker HD, etc). Though I would be a bit upset if they just went completely over to Nintendo.

    Can anyone blame the guy? It's already been said multiple times all over the internet that it isn't up to Platinum Games whether Bayonetta 2 is ported or not, but to Nintendo; therefore, it's a colossal waste of time to bother someone from Platinum Games and beg him to port it.

    Worst part is how many copies is Bayonetta 2 even going to sell due to it being a Wii U exclusive and how the TW101 fell short on sales.

    Exactly. Publishing exclusively on Wii U is dooming the title to both obscurity and failure. It doesn't meet the core demographic for Nintendo gamers and the Wii U hasn't shipped enough units for the game to succeed.

    How's that exclusivity deal looking now Platinum?

    Considering both of the actual next gen systems have already sold more than the Wii U has (in the UK at least, I'm not positive about over here) I think Platinum are going to be trying their damnedest to get their games on the systems that actually support third parties. There is no reason for Platinum to stay exclusive to Nintendo (unless they decide to fund all their games and Platinum doesn't care about profit) and it will ultimately be a bad decision for their company.

    Put it on the 3DS too, it'll sell some copies then.

    Platinum Games have had some fantastic titles in Vanquish, MG Rising and Bayonetta, it's a shame only Nintendo dared show faith in them for Bayonetta 2, no doubt it'll be awesome but not on many GOTY lists in 2014 because sod all people will have played it. ( In the grand scheme of things )

    If it's worth publishing, it's worth publishing on all platforms. Anything less will result in a HUGE loss for Nintendo and Platinum. I suppose it's easier to spend someone else's dime and not give a shit about the result.

    The game doesn't even have a release date... Nintendo had the chance to show it on VGX but didn't. How far is Platinum to even completing the game now? I bet we won't see a single trailer till E3 2014. Sad but whatever.

    Yeap, but for some reason no one but Nientiendo wanted to invest in the game; thus, the result will be small sales for the game and a likely loss for Nientendo, while Platinum loses nothing and gives no craps.

    Sony could have possibly funded it, if it weren't for Platinum sucking at developing for the PS3 and pretty much forcing Sony to patch a broken game that they made. There is no wonder why it didn't get funded by anyone.

    Thanks to Bladia for the amazing Sig and Avy.
