Yeah but when you see Sega doesn't wanna fund Bayonetta 2 and rather pay for another shitty Sonic game that almost no one even want or care, you realize they aren't always good risk takers.
In fact, the Bayonetta case is a good point for the thread
They took the risk in Bayo1 and it didn't pay out. Bayo2 wasn't a risk for Nintendo it was a calculated loss on the game to increase game count and diversity on WiiU.
