How Bayonetta 2 will have enough used copies for anyone that want to buy Used.

I’ve seen a decent amount of comments on this site regarding the availability of used copies of Bayonetta 2. I hate to tell you all the truth, but there WILL BE USED Bayonetta 2 simply because there WILL BE people who will sell it after playing it, or don’t like it.

There is no recent major releases that you CANNOT find a used copy of the game (some even appear like 2 days after release date on Gamestop shelves) unless your name is Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk2 (NA version), or some VERY VERY niche game. If you believe there will be NO USED copies of Bayonetta 2, then what you are essentially saying is:

1. Bayonetta 2 will only be bought by hardcore fans of Bayonetta 2
2. Bayonetta 2 have no mass appeal on the Wii U and is not going to sell well, and
3. That you believe there are A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT WILL FOLLOW THE “ADVICE” on this site…

When Bayonetta 2 gets bought by a Wii U owner, there really is no doubt that there will be used copies.

The kinds of people that will really buy Bayonetta 2 used:

A. Someone who followed the “advice” on this site;
B. A curious window shopper that may pick up Bayonetta 2 used for cheap (I mean like $20),
C. Someone tight on cash but likes Bayonetta 2

And unless you think there are a lot of A, B, and C type of people, the supply of Bayonetta 2 will outstrip the demand. If indeed the demand for used outstrips the used supply, then I am very happy that what I had in mind was accomplished.

What I wanted, through this blog is for people to buy as many used copies of Bayonetta 2 copies as possible, as not to create new sales. Creating a equilibrium of sort between the supply and demand.

Do you really think I am naive, that the internet (and Bayonetta “fans”) will follow what I say here en masse? Of course not, but I just want to raise the possibility of an alternative for anyone that feels ‘burned’ by PG’s decision to think about buying it used and now new.

There really is no answer to “where will the used Bayonetta 2 come from if everyone buy used?” It just happens. It’s magic.

Why I think Bayonetta 2 for Wii U Exclusive is bad for me.

This is a post from a reply I made to some comments. I’d like to post it here so that everyone is clear on my stance with Nintendo.

Nintendo getting B2 as an exclusive is bad for me because it does not fit the bill of what I looked for in a console based on its last iteration known as Wii. What I looked for in a console is:

1. Lots of jRPG (Unlocalized is fine too since I can understand JP). I.e. Hyperdimension Neptunia, Atlier Series, All the Agarest Senki, NamcoBandai Tales (Vesperia, Graces F, Xillia), Final Fantasy, Star Ocean, Valkyria Chronicles, Disgaea, etc.
2. Lots of Japanese action/fighting games (like Dynasty Warriors/Samurai/Orochi Warriors, BlazeBlue, etc.)
3. Being import friendly. (PS3 Games being the most import friendly without a question).

And PS3 being able to have other old PS/PS2 classic, which holds a vast amount of jRPG as well is a huge perk. Brave Fencer Musashi was awesome!

For someone who preferred a console with the above criteria, I don’t know how any other way but to say Nintendo having B2 as an exclusive is just bad for me. Having to have an extra console $400+ to play one game is a debatable investment. Obviously, I am using Wii as a “baseline” comparison to the Wii U, but if I am looking at all the so far announced games, there is not a single jRPG announced, KT announced warriors series, but they are remakes, and Ninja Gaiden which will be Multi-platform. Do you see me going in length talking about those KT titles? No. Because they are multi-platform.

The tl;dr version: Wii U isn’t my ideal console because I like lots of jRPG, Japanese Action/Fighting games (which Bayonetta 2 falls into), and I love to import games. If the Wii U improve in all of these area, I’d more than likely be in love with it. But so far, the line-up isn’t very promising, which makes the sole reason of getting a Wii U is for Bayonetta 2. And for others like me, the Wii U is not a very sound investment.

Contempt for used game/console?

Here is a question for all the lovely readers.

What would be your reaction if I wrote “I’ll buy WiiU used and Bayonetta 2 used”, instead of “I’ll buy Wii U used and Bayonetta 2 used because I don’t want to support them.”

Would you even came here, or would this site be even noticed if it’s a site that says I will be buying the Wii U used and Bayonetta 2 used?

Are all the lovely comments made here all because of a reasoning attached to my choice of buying the console and game used, or all of you just have a genuine distaste of people buying used consoles and games?

Would love to hear from you all. And if nobody comments on this, I’d assume that all of you agreed to the above reasoning which would make an interesting topic of discussion for another time and place. A simple Yes/No would suffice. You are more than welcomed to write your thoughts too~
