I am also going to buy a Wii U just to play Bayonetta 2. I mean, Bayonetta was the top game on my Best of 2010, so why wouldn't I? Nintendo made a smart move by picking it up. It reaches a core niche market that they've been missing for a while. As long as they give Platinum free reign over it, then there's no reason for me to NOT buy a Wii U for that game alone.

It's just like with PS3. I've always said that I would buy a PS3 ONLY if Dark Cloud 3 ever came out. It's the sole thing that would make me buy it.

The Pach has spoken, again...

“I’m not a fan of the console [lol]. Essentially I look at the GamePad and the television, the two screens, and I see a DS that’s disaggregated. It’s very similar to playing a DS game. The difference is, with the DS your line of sight is on both screens. It’s easy to toggle back and forth. With the GamePad on the Wii U you have to look back and forth, and that’s not natural.
“I understand the console is going to be way more powerful than the DS. It’s entirely possible you’ll get great experiences that are console-like but take advantage of the touch screen. But I think most developers look at the GamePad as either a gimmick or very DS like, and they don’t want to incorporate the touchscreen features because the games aren’t any better for them.”
“Nintendo will pioneer, they’ll do a far better job than anybody of exploiting the console and the control scheme, and I think others will learn from them,” he added. “I’m afraid we’re going to have a repeat of the Wii cycle from the publishers’ perspective and the developers’ perspective, where very few people will support it. Then if it’s successful they’ll come in, and they’ll fail. When they fail, they’ll go away again. The reason I think they’ll fail is, I can’t think of a third-party publisher that did well on the DS. I mean, Scribblenauts, so there are a handful games and you can count them. Nobody did very well on the DS, and I don’t think anybody’s going to do very well on the Wii U.”

Pachter doesn't play games, we know this.
