1. They need to be sure there are at least 10 millions Wii U owner
2. They need to be sure among all those Wii U owner, there are at least 10 millions people who want to buy Bayonetta 2(or fan of Bayonetta).
3. They need to be sure among people who want to buy Bayonetta 2, there are at least 10 millions people who ACTUALLY buy Bayonetta 2.
If someone post "I don't care", they actually care VERY much.
If they DON'T care, they WON'T bother posting.

So how was Bayonetta? I remember playing a demo and wasnt overly impressed, if im not mistaken the game didnt sell all that well, somewhere around 1 million across all consoles? how could a game that sold so little be looked upon as a system seller now?
Best technical action game of the generation, along with Ninja Gaiden 2 (depending on your preference). Generally, most DMC fans consider Bayonetta superior to any DMC game and a logical evolution of DMC-style combat.

trenken posted...There are some big time AAA franchises that dont sell 10 million. I think Metroid Prime 3 didnt even make it to 2 mil worldwide, and you somehow think a franchise that so few people know or care about can make it to 10? Its not possible. Its not possible for it to sell half that.
Per game. Im not talking about the entire franchise. The Halo games sell around 8 mil now.

The game will fail as much as the 1st one did. There was a reason it never received a sequel until now you know, and that's because it wasn't popular.

10 million? Yeah right. In order for that to be even close to possible, Wii U would have to have sold more than 10 million by the time it's released, and then almost everyone in the world who owns one would have to buy a copy of this game. Needless to say, that's a far-fetched scenario.
I'll consider this game a success if it sells even 1/5th of what you're predicting.

DarkAdonis123 posted...>Says Bayonetta 2 will sell 10 million
Even still what indications aren there that Bayonetta can sell those numbers. Final Fantasy can't put up those numbers anymore. Final Fantasy, Metal Gear Solid, Halo, and many other "hugely popular" series can't put up those kind of numbers but you think Bayonetta will? On a system with a miniscule install base no less?
To put things in perspective lets look at Call of Duty 2. It was THE huge hit at the 360 launch. It established the brand in such a big way that down the road a bit every CoD that comes out is getting around 20 million sales. Call of Duty 2 sold about 2 million copies in its first two years out. Why so few? It was a launch game!

Welllll....if fans were actually fans and not just Sony/Microsoft fans that only like it when it's on "their" system, then it could sell close to 2 million easy.
Buy a WiiU and play it
Forget it and stop whining. Every console has good exclusives.
Reminds me of the whining babies on the MH3U board always making topics like "wah wah I don't want to buy a console for one gamez!!1" Do you really want to admit that Bayonetta fans are as bad as hardcore MH fans? I hope not, because that's a low for humanity.

Why hasn't anyone counteracted this yet?
That means absolutely nothing. Bayonetta had advertising like crazy, and it couldn't even break 2 million across two consoles that sold 100 million combined.
Less than 2% of HD console owners bought Bayonetta new.
The Wii U will barely sell 10 million this year, so I'd be surprised if it broke 500k.
