@bnuyen Based on my time with it, yeah, B2 is a fantastic game. Maybe even the best title of 2014 thus far (my personalty favorite game of the year is TLOU:R, but it's not really fair to count that :p), but nothing is perfect to everyone. There are 100's of genres that appeal to 100's of different types of people.

I'd also agree that Bayonetta 2 is gorgeous but because of its art direction, not its graphics. Graphics means stuff like resolution, anti-aliasing, textures and texture filtering, polygon counts, particle engines, shaders etc. In that respect, B2 is fairly average. That doesn't mean it looks average, thanks to the aforementioned art direction it looks great, but if you praise it for things it doesn't deserve to be praised for, you're taking away credit from the artists who worked their asses off to make B2 look as good as it does on hardware as limited as the WiiU's.

We all have preference and biases. You mustn't criticize people for having different ones to you. It makes you look like someone who lets theirs manipulate them.

@Zekkyou hope you have played it. cause this game is un real man the Graphics are gorgeous, Bayonetta2 is literally the best game the gaming industry has put out this year. Thanks Nintendo for always giving us the best Quality games. shame on you Sony and Microsoft ...Yall missed it!!!! XD and to all the haters, the game is out and its sublime Perfection at its best and no one can deny it. I repeat IF YOU SAY ANYTHING against this game is purely because you just have not played it or just have bad taste. Game Spot calls it perfect and it gave it a 10/10 review so did edge magazine and I agree man thank you Nintendo! and if Nintendo is going to start releasing awesome quality third party like this than I CANT WAIT FOR DEVILS THIRD only on WiiU baby Jass ^_~

@bnuyen I'd say there is quite a long list of titles with better graphics than B2, even if we confine the list to only titles releasing from now until the end of the year :p Its art direction is great (a tad hit and miss, but the same can be said of most games), but on a graphics levels it's pretty damn ugly. Its only redeeming factor is the frame rate, but even that leaves a lot to be desired in stability.

Half agree on gameplay though. It's too early to name any one game the best, but based on my time with B2 it will certainly be hard to trump in that respect.

Perfection at its finest ...according to Game Spot and Edge Magazine and I agree ...I feel bad for all f those who dont have this game. This the Game of the Year no doubt in my mind ...far better in graphics and game play than anything that's come out on any console this year.

Gammalad (on 20 October 2014)
I am expecting about 70k total US Pre-orders, which means the first week sales could be about 200k
Pillow (on 09 October 2014)
Expecting good legs. Could reach 1M before Jan 2016.
ExplodingBlock (on 06 October 2014)

FarleyMcFirefly (on 02 October 2014)
So stoked for this!!!
KLAMarine (on 29 September 2014)
I honestly don't care how many it sells. I just hope it sells enough whether that be 100k or one million.
bnuyen@outlook.com (on 05 September 2014)
omg she looks sick on the peach, daisy, and so foxy on the star fox out fits augh!!! that direct when by quick quick man ...sexy sexy cant wait to get this bitch.
bnuyen@outlook.com (on 04 September 2014)
100k pre orders already just in the US alone and we still got 2 more months cant wait for this game!! :D
bnuyen@outlook.com (on 04 September 2014)
pre oderd ^_^ ...I dont see no problem in this game selling well over a million its an awesome game. Lol the ps4 and xbox fans even had to be told to stop asking for a bayonetta 2 for the ps4 or xbox1 by the Platinum Games CEO cause it will never happen.
there is even Bayonetta movie I watch it its awesome. for people like me who played the first game its a must no questions asked.
but even for those who did not even played the first one its also good cause it also includes the first game so you get two games for one.
its a great game and all the trolls in the comment section wish they could play it and all the bayonetta fans like me cant wait to get it.

fleischr (on 22 August 2014)
#OperationPlatinum aims to make this a million seller!
ExplodingBlock (on 22 August 2014)

ExplodingBlock (on 07 August 2014)
Will it do 40k pre order when it launches?
gcube2000 (on 04 August 2014)
This game will break a million easily with the hype it has in America and Japan.
drake_tolu (on 15 July 2014)
The first Bayonetta for XBOX 360 in the USA have had less of 35.000 pre order the week of coming... and the 2, have more of 36.000 pre order, when the game will coming between 4 month...
qwertyDANIELqwerty (on 01 July 2014)
Great Pre-order numbers for only being U.S. pre-orders, when there is even more hype in Japan.
Hibern81 (on 27 June 2014)
I thought there would be a bigger bump after they announced that a download code for the original Bayonetta was going to be included with part 2. Oh well. It got me to pre-order.
NintendoSupporter (on 07 April 2014)
@drake_tolu IKR!
drake_tolu (on 03 April 2014)
30.000 pre order.
And the game not have a date...
and there's still people who say that will be a flop?
Bh...
chidori-chan2 (on 02 April 2014)
As for Bayonetta 2, pains me to say, but I have a BAD feeling that it's going to bomb hard. SADLY...................
NintendoSupporter (on 01 April 2014)
Cool, joined the preorder charts.
drake_tolu (on 21 March 2014)
@Fleischr The Game Have almost 30.000 pre order!!!
fleischr (on 19 February 2014)
What are the pre-orders at now?
drake_tolu (on 12 February 2014)
My beautiful witch
Pillow (on 14 December 2013)
This is the second most pre-ordered game on Wii U in the US atm, with 23k. And we don't even have a launch date yet. Only beaten by DKCR, which is 10$ cheaper + releases in 2 months. + it's beating Mario Kart 8 which is supposed to be released way before (in spring vs possibly Fall)
I think it will sell better than most expects. Just stick a pre-order bonus with it and call it a day.
tbone51 (on 16 July 2013)
i hope this game breaks a million! Day 1 for me!
DietSoap (on 04 March 2013)
3 million, going to crush the 360/PS3 sales of the first!
think-man (on 10 December 2012)
700K LTD im guessing.
swii26 (on 30 November 2012)
Can't wait for this title!!
Red4ADevil (on 16 September 2012)
Ironicaly enough it doesn't exist (for Wii U) under "Tag Game" when making a thread.
Darth Naner (on 14 September 2012)
It's published by Nintendo, not Platinum Games. And it's not "also on" PS3 and 360. :)
