Platinum Games is one of the few hardcore gaming developers left.. hopefully they continue to get lots of sales and praise. Can't wait for more Bayonetta info or anything new from the devs.
Care to elaborate on what makes a dev hardcore?

Special Edition that removes all the stupid vehicle sections and QTE's, while adding a lot more awesome combat?

I'm sorry, but no, the port is not fine at all. It shouldn't even have been released in that state. This isn't obsessing over the detail in water or some missing special effects, the PS3 port runs significantly worse to the point where it effects gameplay frequently (and although it's relatively minor compared to that, the washed-out look does not help the game at all). Maybe it's not as clear on Easy, but if you're going for 100% completion you'll see how bad it is (although I don't know how you could have missed some of its worse moments even at that level).
Yeah I did go for 100% completion (PS3 died half way through infinite climax) and I see none of these so-called gameplay affecting problems. It ran fine, maybe not as well as the 360 version, but minor detail loss and loading times don't affect the game that badly.

I can't imagine any sort of new playable Bayonetta material (DLC, spinoff, downloadable minigame, sequel) possibly being bad, so let's hope it's anything like that and not an art book or something.

Kinect-based P.N.03 inspired Bayonetta Sequel.

Believe.
Now that I think about it, it would be totally bad-ass if Vanessa Schneider was a playable character in Vanquish. Too bad it won't happen.

no here's what would REALLY rule and won't happen: if every enemy in Vanquish actually had a fully developed melee moveset that they would only really use if you play as Bayonetta (and, of course, the ability to play as Bayonetta) so Vanquish would simultaneously be (functionally speaking) Resident Evil 4-2 and Bayonetta 2

If Capcom didn't own the rights to Vanessa, I think the chances of that happening would be pretty high.

Who is the proprietary of the IP? Sega or Plantium?

I'm sure I read there would be no DLC for Bayonetta (it's said somewhere in the interview in the SE guide) which is why I'm so delightfully excited.

Yeah, Kamiya said that because he hates the concept of dlc apparently and because they stuffed the game with so much add-on content from the get go already. But it's also like SEGA's only really successful game recently (?) :) Especially when it comes to critical acclaim.

This is great news! Even if the news ends up being lame I am happy Bayonetta is still getting new content. It is my GOTY for this year so far.

I'm surprised how many people are clamoring for a PC version.

I am, too! Loved the game and would like to see it be prettier. A special edition with some added content of some sort on PS3, 360, and PC would be amazing. Besides, it's too soon for a sequel anyway.

I'd rather have both on PC.

And it won't happen.
As long as the PC is basically all but a joke in Japan, and commonly viewed as a "Pirate's Paradise" every where else, that's likely going to be the reason why a smaller developer like P* likely won't have many (if any...) PC ports. Such a thing is just a money sink for them and their publisher.

Any way, it will be interesting to see what else they could stand to do. Besides the "Cutie J" idea, I could definitely see Kamiya's "Umbra Fighter" come to life.
