Oh, now this is rich.
So apparently there's a movement by supposedly hardcore Bayonetta fans to boycott the game and only buy it used. Though as the article linked above notes at the end, in order to do that, they'd still have to buy a Wii U to play it.
Man, boycotts are weird.
I seriously hope that is just a whole bunch of people really not thinking things through, because if it is intentional it could quite possibly be one of the most disgusting things gamers have done. I'm just going to say it right now: anyone who actually follows through with that idea is worse than scum. I've got nothing against people who want to boycott the game based on this decision - if someone wants to stand up and say "I disagree with this game being exclusively on the Wii-U, and therefore I will not be playing it", I may not agree with them, but I'll at least respect their decision.
However, this whole notion of "I'm going to buy the game used just to teach the developers a lesson" is sickening. As it has already been pointed out, such an act requires a purchase of a Wii-U meaning they've already given Nintendo their money, and it means they obviously wanted the game badly enough to purchase the new console in the first place. It is just punishing the developers who are probably just happy someone actually agreed to publish a sequel to the game in the first place.
On top of that, it's just so half-assed. It's wanting to have their cake, and eat it as well. They can't go without playing the game, but they still feel so outraged they try to find underhanded ways such as this so they don't have to make any sacrifices. If people want to boycott something, they should have the guts to actually boycott it. And the really annoying part: if this actually happens, and enough people buy it used to cause the game undersell so a sequel won't get green lit, all those "fans" will start bitching how Nintendo is screwing them over by not giving them a third Bayonetta game.
It is really hard to convince myself this industry is worth taking seriously sometimes. Time after time, more and more crap like this emerges and I just do not see an end in sight. It is really getting depressing.
