You should, it's going to be an amazing console.

Did you see the sale numbers for Bayonetta? Let me give you a hint: there's a reason neither Sony or Microsoft gives a shit that it's not on their systems.
Yes, it's a huge deal. You personally might think it's not good, but critic/user review wise it's a very highly ranked game and if you are reading forums/discussions, many people are upset that it's an exclusive because they want it on other systems too. This makes Nintendo look more serious about "hardcore" games.

As for the sales, the simple fact that Nintendo is acquiring these kind of exclusive that people love and want is going to bring in more sales to the system, people who thought it was going to be just another Wii console is going to look at Zombiu, Black Ops, and indeed the now exclusive Bayonetta, and want to get it. Nintendo is known for putting out their own exclusives only when it comes to "hardcore" games, as in Zelda/Mario/Metroid (with a few exceptions to the rule), and showing off games from different dev teams that are exclusive like Bayonetta shows their future is going to be a very solid one with a lot of exclusives/support from other very high quality dev teams, with high quality games.

It's absolutely fantastic from a marketing perspective and in general as the first game was awesome (many people believe so, your opinion is your own).

Have you seen the graphics on the WII U? The fans of Bayonetta won't even have a properly rendered stripper-ninja-witch to crank it too.

But no it's not a big deal except to the very small group of fans the game has. The game's sales were horrible. It was highly reviewed ...for a game most people hated.

There are people who think Bayonetta is good. I can't imagine why but there are. There just aren't that many of them.

That is not dead which can eternal lie and withs strange aeons even death may die.

Not gonna be suckered into another Wii system. Nintendo's systems just don't attract enough of the games I like anymore.

Even buying every title and peripheral I wanted, it still sat unused except when we had people over and wanted to play something that went well with chemicals and limited attention spans, while the 360 and my PC got the bulk of the gaming time.

Everybody good, plenty of slaves for my robot colony?

Wii U graphics? You mean the one that's 50% stronger than the PS3?

Sales? It sold 1.35 million copies in the first 4-6 months, and for the first 4 months it was only released in Japan. Let me put it this way, go read forums, you will see many, many people extremely excited for this. You might not be, but so what? That is irrelevant in regards to popularity/excitement as a whole. I hate Halo, so what? Means nothing on a personal level.

Do you even remember its release? It was hyped to a crazy level and many, many people loved it and if you go read forums right now on the game being an exclusive to Wii U, you will mostly find Nintendo fans extremely happy and non-Nintendo fans upset that it's not for other consoles (cause they want the game).

You're making no sense right now and just sound like someone who isn't a fan of Nintendo.

That's what they say they'll have or what they have? Twice the processing power or twice the graphics card or ? Its just not a company I believe when they tout spec's.

I sold video games at the time it came out so yeah I remember the hype and I remember how many of those were sold back to us. Easily 60% of those sold were sold back to us within the first month.

Seems amazingly popular.

As for the graphics... I've been looking up the screenshots and play videos of the Wii U and it looks like shit. And there are people in forums all over complaining about it.

I haven't seen anybody online happy about this besides you and I frequent game forums.

Rumors of the specs have been released, and it's not just Nintendo saying it, the development teams have came out and said after working with it the system is without question stronger than both the 360 and PS3, probably up to 50% or more.

Read the comments.

All you're going to find is "this is stupid, it should be released for everoyne" (they want the game) - or "YESSS" or "I'll now be buying a Wii U".

Show me the website you see where you see nobody happy about it or wishing it was for more platforms cause they want to play it.

Graphics? Here's an unpolished, still needing to be fixed up version of ZombiU from an older build at 720p (Wii U games will run at 1080p HD).

I get it. You think Bayonetta was awesome and you can't wait to use the Wii U to masturbate to it with. I watched your video and it still looks like shit. I've seen the brand new videos and they look like shit.

At this point I am ******* tired of arguing with you.

Haha, who is arguing, Why so upset? It's a discussion, but feel free to stop if you wish.

edit - I completed the Skyrim DLC (second one), for 5 bucks or whatever it was, there was quite a bit of content. You wouldn't expect building a house to last that long but having to get all the materials, work on the houses, get everything maxed and set up takes a while. I enjoyed it.
