I don't know how much the rest of you know about Japanese culture (I'm an expert), but honor and shame are huge parts of it. It's not like it is in America where you can become successful by being an asshole. If you screw someone over in Japan, you bring shame to yourself, and the only way to get rid of that shame is repentance.
What this means is the japanese public, after hearing about this, is not going to want to purchase Bayonetta 2 for WiiU, nor will they purchase any of Sega's games. This is HUGE. You can laugh all you want, but Sega has alienated an entire market with this move.
Sega, publicly apologize and cancel Bayonetta for WiiU or you can kiss your business goodbye.
Well I'll be damned. Exclusives like this is all I have been waiting to see. As it actually gives me a reason to buy a Wii U. If this keeps up, then I will most definitely buy one. A most encouraging early sign indeed.
Disappointing, and I don't even own one of the competing platforms or care that much about the game.
I was simply hoping to see this "moneyhatting for exclusives" for everything that isn't first party as a thing of the past, in this next console generation coming.
