Why wasn't Bayonetta 2 Xbox One exclusive?

Original Bayonetta on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 together only sold like 1.3-1.4 million copies and when we combine Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 fanbase then we get like 150 million users and Bayonetta was released in Q4 2009 so in 4 years basically it only sold 1.3-1.4 million copies so attach rate was actually not even 1 percent.

Bayonetta on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 was not profitable and Vanquish flopped on both of these platforms and in combined sales it only sold 0.9 million copies from its release in 2010 so sales of this game and Bayonetta on both Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 point out that both of these games flopped and thus it actually casts a shadow of a doubt about Xbox and Playstation fanbase being hardcore.

Madworld is another game from Platinum games that was released as Wii exclusive and it sold 0.7 million copies though Wii was much weaker console with limitations so it was cheaper to develop games for, even though game was not successful I think it was profitable since with each new generation and the leap the game production is two to four times higher.

Games that are from East and are not westernized have better attach rate on Nintendo's console than on Microsoft's or Sony's and only cause of possibly low sales of Bayonetta 2 on Wii U would be small instal base and not the audience.

You are not a core gamer if restricted to handhelds/consoles from one company thus limiting amount of games, further by genre's and graphical style of the game.

Dont Worry! I have it under good authority that M$ has secured a handful of future exclusives.

CoD: MW Returns
CoD: BLoPS3
CoD: Halo United
CoD x GoW crossover
CoD: Dogs
CoD: Dogs 2
CoD: WoW2
CoD: Re-make


These exciting games will all be released in 2014 with exciting dlc season passes each. I'm glad M$ is looking out for their consumers by getting only the BEST games out there! Make sure you preorder each title day 1 and purchase the season pass. These devs work hard to make sure they provide only the best unique experience possible on Xbone.

*net and Kinect requirement at all times


You good sir have won the internet!

Xbox fanbase is more hardcore than Playstation who play graphical showcase games with terrible gamplay like Killzone, Uncharted, Infamous, which is why Bayonettta and Vanquish should be Xbox One exclusive.

Well, it doesnt matter. nintendo has it.

There is more hype around bayo 2 so I expect it to break the one million mark in life time sales, which is quite a feat since the fan base is on other platforms.

And tc, your anger is music to my ears. It is hilarious that you refuse to but a Wii u as if touching it will burn your skin. Lol.
