What I don't get about Bayonetta 2 not being on the 360 or PS3..

..is if the first game didn't sell well enough on the 2 consoles that have MILLIONS more units in homes - why would Nintendo bother trying to secure this game?

It's not just a rumor, I heard it on Gamefaqs.

Why does Nintendo do a lot of the things they do? I think it's perhaps to show that they can get a known and somewhat 'mature' title on the console.

The first game did sell very well from what I remember, Sega just didn't want to put up the amount of money it'd take to make a worthy sequel. Nintendo was smart to snatch it up, now they have an exclusive game that appeals to the hardcore gamer.

It didn't sell well. Even today, it still hasn't made profit.

Bayonetta 2 is pretty much doomed anyway. Games like it have never sold well on Wii, so why is WiiU an exception all of the sudden? Especially since the WiiU hasn't sold that well.

If it didn't sell well enough on two consoles what's to say that if Nintendo, which has a very loyal fanbase in the first place, couldn't make quota on one console?

Nintendo wants a foothold in Japan. Given that the Bayonetta had good reviews but undersold due to having only one working version that was available on a platform that the Japanese market was too xenophobic for, this was a perfect opportunity for Nintendo to snatch a share of the PS3 userbase. It also helps that Sega had been rather incompetent when it comes to publishing console games.

but it doesnt really appeal to a hardcore gamer cause depsite the huge user base it didnt sell enough on PS3 and 360. Bayonetta 2 is not gonna be a system mover.
