Do these people realise that Nintendo owns the rights to Bayonetta 2?
Whinging to Platinum CAN'T make a difference, as they don't have the power to decide to port it to other systems. It's not difficult.
If you care that much just buy a Wii U, and get W101 whilst you're at it; it's a great game that deserves to be played.
You either own the IP or you don't. You don't just "own the rights" to one particular title in a series. And just because Nintendo published and funded the game doesn't mean that it will remain exclusive. Look at Mass Effect 1. MS published and funded that game, but it ended up on PS3 because the IP switched to a new publisher. MS didn't own anything with ME. Gears could end up on a PS console as well, if Epic Games strikes a deal with a different publisher, and they could retroactively place the whole Gears series on a PS console if they saw it as profitable (probably not). Same could happen with Bayonetta 2.
That being said, at this moment in time, this game is being published and funded by Nintendo, so right now, people need to just stfu and get a WiiU if they want it so bad. To ask them to port it isn't simply a matter of coding the game for PS and Xbox. They have to get a different publisher who will OK multiplatform development, have a financial plan, etc. etc. that goes into game development. It may be simple to port it, but so much more goes into something like that. Only reason ME appeared on PS is because EA straight up bought BioWare. To want Bayonetta 2 to appear on PS and Xbox is to either ask Platinum Games to get bought out (which happens, but isn't cool to wish upon independent developers, unless they want it) by a company that does multiplatform games across the board or for them to jump through the hoops of getting a different publisher after the game has already been mad. Either way, I don't think the gains would outweigh the cost in either situation.
So, TL;DR get a WiiU is you want this game right now
Bayonetta 2 will NEVER be on any platform than the WiiU, it will NEVER be ported. No matter who owns the Bayonetta IP, the Bayonetta 2 game will ALWAYS belong to Nintendo.
"buying a license gives you the ability to make "something" with that intellectual property.
and what you do with that license is yours and yours alone,because you already paid the creator of the IP for the license.
There's no way an agreement where someone puts money on the project and someone else take control over it can exist.
The game is basically a nintendo game,developed by platinum using a license from sega.
Nintendo pays and have control over the game
platinum develops and receive money from nintendo for that
sega permits the utilisation of the bayonetta franchise and receive money for that (and maybe a share of the profits)
An IP is just a shell,sega owns the shell but not the game inside of it,because they didn't put money on said content..or are you suggesting that nintendo is paying for a game and then it will give it for free to sega to port on other consoles?it doesn't make any sense "
