Forums - Gaming Discussion - Bayonetta 2 vs Final Fantasy XV announcement reactions show some double standards.

Ok, I just noticed something. When bayonetta 2 was announced as a wii u exclusive, there was an immense backslash from fans. the main argument was "Now I must buy a wii u if I want to play this game that should be on my platform".

when final fantasy XV was confirmed for ps4 and xone, no ps3 version, nothing really happened. I'm sure some were dissapointed but I don't recall any visible backslash from ps3 owners.

now let's compare. Bayo 2 was never announced for ps360, it was always wii u only as soon as the first news were released for it. And people complained about having to buy a next gen system in order to play a next gen exclusive (the basic reason to buy a new system). Final fantasy XV was announced in 2007 as PS3 EXCLUSIVE and 6 years later it was said that it won't release on ps3 at all, only ps4 and xone confirmed. Yet you don't see ps3 owners complain about having to buy a ps4/xone in order to play a game that WAS ACTUALLY SUPPOSED TO BE ON PS3.

So all I can conclude is that when something benefits nintendo, it will always be received with hate. if the same kind of thing benefits sony/ms, there's little to no hate at all.

Or most people who have a PS3 are planning on getting a PS4, so they aren't missing out on anything.

That and the op os misrepresenting the argument for bayonetta 2. or ya know, they arent the same people and the op is misrepresenting the meaning of double standard

i don't think the 50 millions plus people are going to ditch their 3 years old PS3 for another one more expensive for just a few games.



Nintendo stole Bayonetta and Monster Hunter, and Microsoft stole GTA and Metal Gear Solid, but Sony simply "brought Final Fantasy to the definitive platform".

Still waiting for them Metroid games :/

That was cruel.  You shouldn't break the OP in the second comment, it's just inconsiderate.

On a side note, I love how "a few die-hard fans complaining online" turns into  "immense backslash".  I'm sorry, but only a relatively few people care about Bayonetta.  The exaggeration of that response is the only thing "immense" about it.



Maybe it's because Bayonetta 2 will be an awesome game and people have low faith for Final Fantasy XV?

 

Edit: Edit, just in case:

even if the entirity of ps3 owners had the intention to upgrade, most of them do it after 3 years of the console release. that's a lot of people waiting far longer than they should, to play a game that should be on the previous system.

Because Bayo 2 and some other games are the only games coming for Wii U...EVER. Production of games stops after Bayo 2.
