Edge Online with a feature on Platinum Games

Edge Online has a lengthy feature on Platinum Games' history and future:

Platinum’s debut game was MadWorld, a 2009 Wii exclusive that combined an unforgettable black-and-white visual style with over the top ultraviolence. It received an Edge six, falling at the low end of the scale, with an overall Metacritic score of 81. Sales were poor, too, serving as a stark warning to other third parties thinking about the Wii. MadWorld tanked.

An interesting look at a company that isn't afraid to take risks.

Bayonetta 2 Wii U Exclusive and what it means

Joe Juba, writing over at

(F)or me, the biggest news regarding the Wii U today was the announcement that Bayonetta 2 would be exclusive to Nintendo’s console. I know Bayonetta isn’t as big as other names coming to Wii U, like Mass Effect, Assassin’s Creed, or Call of Duty, but the key difference is the exclusivity... Bayonetta is a hardcore gamer’s game with a cult following, and its sequel will draw a certain crowd. All Nintendo needs is a few must-play exclusives like that, and gamers won’t mind shelling out for a new console, because it demonstrates that the Wii U can provide things that the PS3 and 360 can’t.
