I can see blatant clones being a huge problem as people undercut the original creator and all talk gets lost in a sea of text.

Ubi has had years of watching other companies try to do online platforms and sales. They don't exist in a bubble. If they think they are in a bubble, they're doing it all wrong. Their users are not complete idiots who have only used uPlay. The fact you need a companion app in iOS or Android is proof of that.

Quite a few feminists (I won't name names winkwinknudgenudge) hate Bayonetta even though her lead designer is a woman and Bayonetta is Mari Shimazaki's female power fantasy. Good job, feminists. You really have your finger on the pulse of women gamers.

Women sometimes disagree with each other, you know. They don't have a hive mind that compels them to have one single view on pop culture.

Yeah, that's basically what I wrote. This is a difference of opinion between a creator and some critics.

My opinion:

In this case those feminists are trying to un-empower a strong female figure made by and for women and just reduce her to wank material, which seems counter to what the feminist movement is based on. They don't have a hive mind, but they do have common goals. Reducing Bayonetta to just a male sexual fantasy seems unproductive, but I don't know their long term plan.
