You don't have Vanquish????? Get that game now!!!!!!!
PlatinumGames makes great games, but they don't sell as many copies as they should - Vanquish hasn't broken one million sales.
Would the maker of MadWorld and Bayonetta be better off sticking to and establishing one IP?
"They are an excellent studio. They're one of the best in Japan - we certainly saw that with Bayonetta," Sega West CEO Mike Hayes told Eurogamer.
"And even though Vanquish didn't achieve the commercial success that we hoped, it got a great Metacritic. Even MadWorld, which was as bizarre as you like, had a Metacritic of 81 per cent. An exceptionally good studio.
"The nice thing about working with PlatinumGames," he added, "is that you can dip into their pool of creativity and see what they come up with next. And that's like gaming used to be. To have the freedom to have a partner like that is good. We tend not to put the suits and restrictions on them and 'you now must do this'. It's like, 'What have you got next then guys?' And if we think there's a commercial opportunity then we want to partner with them."
Gary Dunn, senior vice president of production at Sega, offered: "They are more than one team. There are different teams inside PlatinumGames and they have different DNA, and you expect to see different excellence out of them."
More than one team - a Bayonetta 2 team?
"I've got no comment on that," said Hayes.
