I’ve seen on several gaming site’s comment section regarding attach rate of Bayonetta 2 on WiiU, and touted it as a great number.
This is laughable if they actually did some home work and research and math.
According to Siliconera which tracks Media Create sales, when Bayonetta 1 was released in Japan, there was approximately, 3.73 Miilion PS3 units sold in Japan (1). And Since Xbox 360’s lifetime total was overtaken by WiiU several months back already (2), we can assume, X360 probably have around similar number as WiiU’s current number.
Let’s break it down then.
PS3 Bayo 1 Release Number: 135,242 ; PS3 Unit Number: 3.73 Million
X360 Bayo 1 Release Number: 64,325 ; X360 Unit Nubmer: ~ 1.8 Million (estimate)
WiiU Bayo 2 Release Number: 38,828 ; WiiU Unit Number: 1,930,287 (3)
It doesn’t take a math genius to see WiiU Bayo 2 even has less attach rate than the original. Attach rate can be calculated by Release Number / Unit Numb.
Thanks to PG’s hasty Business decision, we might never see Bayo 3.
