Despite the major media unfairly singling out Bayonetta 2’s Japanese sales (despite not doing that for a multitude of PS4 games). A little fact that was purposely ignored by many is that Bayonetta 2 actually sold 7x the amount the Wonderful 101 did at launch. The Wonderful 101 debut sales were around 5,200 units. Bayonetta 2 debuted with a little under 39,000 units sold in about two days.
Lifetime to date sales in Japan for the Wonderful 101 site at around 53,000 units in Japan. Bayonetta 2 will surpass the lifetime to date sales of The Wonderful 101 soon, if it hasn’t done so already. Make sure to check out my multi-part video series where I exposed the evidence bias against Nintendo with major media sites.

I just wanted to give my quick reaction to Microsoft buying Mojang for $2.5 billion. I’m not opposed to MS buying Mojang, I just feel the price is a bit too high for a company that only has one franchise (albeit a highly successful one). I know this has massive business implications. I’m sure MS is going to start licensing toys, making movies, ect. But as a gamer, I feel Microsoft could have spent that $2.5 billion on actually making more games, getting new studios, and improving the quality of their games.
Just think of how many games $2.5 billion could fund? Congrats to MS, as I’m sure they plan to make far more than $2.5 billion on Minecraft, but as a gamer, I’m a bit disappointed. I mean….. a tiny, tiny fraction of that budget could have easily funded Blue Dragon 2 and Lost Odyssey 2 for Xbox One…..
