Platinum Games is enough to make the Wii U worth the buy.

It's all about from which angle you percieve the Wii U.
From a Wii angle a wii U might seem like an upgrade
from a PS3 & 360 angle it might not be seen as an upgrade hence why a "sidegrade"
And think about all the people that are mad about Rayman, threathening about Boycotting Ubisoft and all that.
Wouldn't the situation at least be simular amongst the platinum games fans if Nintendo bought them?

Not at all, it's entirely different. Almost no one cares about Rayman going multiplatform, they are mad because the fully finished game was delayed for more than half a year for the sake of going multiplatform.

Meanwhile, if Nintendo buys Platinum... these folks can still get Metal Gear Rising on the 360/PS3. And then for the next generation console they'll just have to buy a Wii U to get Platinum's games. In the end it's all about the games. Graphics these days are great for any new console. The Wii U is perfect for offering traditional games, as well as offering new ways to play games.

Aside from graphics, what would the other consoles be able to do with Bayonetta that the Wii U won't? Because really, they sure as hell aren't going to be using motion stuff or whatever. Even as far as the Gamepad goes, I think there will be minor gamepad integration in the game. Off-screen play is almost a given. Aside from that probably menu browsing or perhaps some mini-game stages (like the motorcycle stage in the 1st game).

Wii U = next generation

Platinum games = 3rd party = games can be anywhere

All they have to do is to buy the Wii U as a next-generation system if they want games from Platinum. Why should they care about PS4 or Xbox 3 if there's no Platinum games on them? And they honestly can't expect Platinum to keep making games for the Xbox 360 & PS4 until the dawn of time sets in.


Are you seriously suggesting no one would buy the PS4 and 720, just because there would be no P* games on them?

Its a little different. Nintendo wouldn't be forcing an already finished product a week from release back or off other consoles completely. They'd probably let Platinum finish all 3rd party promised games, and then they'd exclusively make for Nintendo.

The situation you are referring to is more akin to something like, Dark Souls 2 is a week from release on PS3/360, and Nintendo buys atlus, and then the game only comes to Wii U.

But thats the thing that makes it different. Bayonetta 2 wasn't about to be released on PS3/360 in a few days then Platinum canceled it and made it Wii U exclusive.

No, I'm saying that fans of a 3rd party franchise that has no loyalty to anyone whatsoever, should just buy the console where those games go. I'm talking about Bayonetta/Platinum fans here.
