I was blocked by hoggys2much, too. That Nintendo-hating troll gets on my nerves.

And now, he's (at least temporarily) gone.

"Now he's gone, now he's gone.
Like a steam locomotive running down the track,
He's gone, he's gone
And nothing's gonna bring him back.
He's gone."
-He's Gone, by the Grateful Dead

This is terrible for the future of Bayonetta as a franchise, it'll never be on Xbox or PS consoles again because when this game inevitably sells poorly Sega's just going to write it off as "no one is interested in Bayonetta anymore".

No smart person would buy a Wii U just for one game.

Except, Sega already decided that nobody was interested in Bayonetta and dropped it, which is why Ninty's calling the shots; apparently, XBox and PS consoles suck at selling non-exclusive games that don't play like CoD. But hey, you enjoy making up reasons for your allegiance to your underpowered PC-in-a-box; I'll enjoy Bayonetta 2 and my other niche games.

That's highly disingenuous. Sega would've been able to fund the game for several platforms by themselves but Nintendo opportunistically swooped in and stole it for their annual attempt at "bringing hardcore gamers back" which never works for them. They do this every single time they launch a new system: they find themselves hounded by their previous system's "kiddy" image and want to win back the hardcore gamers, so they spend money to acquire a few mature exclusives, which inevitably fail to find their audience on their piece of shit system, and then Nintendo gives up and go back to making toothless games for grandmas and 5 year olds, leaving the core gamers to rot. It happened on the Gamecube, it happened again on the Wii and it's happening again now.

And there's a ton of non-exclusive games on these systems that don't play like COD that sell extremely well. Haven't you ever played Assassin's Creed? Bioshock? Dishonored? Mass Effect? You don't have a clue what you're talking about, and as far as I can see, you're just one of those Nintendo fanboys that treats it as if COD and Mario are the only two games that exist. There is a middle ground you know.

I also find it laughable that you call the other systems underpowered when your system of choice for the last 6 years has been running on hardware barely more powerful than an abacus. And it's even more funny now that Nintendo's set themselves up to be the underpowered one yet again going into the next generation, once MS and Sony release their powerhouses that'll blast it out of the water.

Except that isn't what happened. SEGA is broke, so they dropped Bayonetta so they could focus on their "core" franchises (read: Sonic). Platinum started shopping around their prototype and lo and behold, Nintendo picked it up. as such, it's reasonable to assume that there would be no Bayonetta 2 without Nintendo.

And there's a ton of non-exclusive games on these systems that don't play like COD that sell extremely well. Haven't you ever played Assassin's Creed? Bioshock? Dishonored? Mass Effect?

There is a middle ground you know.

There really isn't as much as you think. Take Resident Evil; after CODE: Veronica, Capcom wasn't going to fund anymore, until Ninty stepped in, worked out an exclusivity contract, and (presumably) funded REmake, Zero, and 4. Capcom makes it multi-plat again but realizes that XBots aren't going to pay for survival horror, and we got 5, ORC, and 6.

I also find it laughable that you call the other systems underpowered when your system of choice for the last 6 years has been running on hardware barely more powerful than an abacus.

No, my system of choice has been a PC that will make the next three generations of XBox/PS look horribly out-dated, so I have plenty of room to mock you for your underpowered PC-in-a-box.

Nintendo's set themselves up to be the underpowered one yet again going into the next generation, once MS and Sony release their powerhouses that'll blast it out of the water.

Probably not. You may not realize this, but Microsoft and Sony are more worried about profits than the integrity of their fanbase, and are probably noticing how their last consoles (and the Vita) were horribly outsold while costing them hundreds for every unit sold. So while there's no doubt that they'll be more powerful than the U, the difference most likely won't bedramatic.
