Bayonetta Scores 100%, PS3 Port “Inferior” to Xbox 360


Bayonetta has been awarded full marks (40/40) by top gaming rag Famitsu, but only for the Xbox 360 original. Even Famitsu feels obliged to point out the bungled nature of Sega’s PS3 port, giving it a piffling 38/40.

The reviewers point out how “unfortunate” it is that the PS3 version enjoys noticeably less gorgeous visuals than the Xbox 360 version.

Good as it may be, many are doubting whether an exagerrated 100% score is really appropriate.

Pointedly, whilst overseas games media heaped praise upon recently released PS3 flagship title Uncharted 2 as being a paragon of gaming virtue, Famitsu only saw fit to award it 37 points, less than the defective port of Bayonetta, for a title many acclaim as a gaming milestone.

The significant difference of course being that Uncharted 2’s Japanese release was very low key as the title is not expected to sell well in the Japanese market, whereas Platinum has expended a considerable amount on advertising Bayonetta with Famitsu (below you can see the top of their enormous preview article on and others…


The superior Xbox 360 version of Bayonetta is available now, as is the loser PS3 version.

    If you played both demos you know just how hard PS3-only gamers are getting fucked up the ass. Anyway the game isn't 40/40 material, but it is awesome. Famitsu is simply a bullshit publication.

    yeah PS3-only gamers are getting ripped off, damn SEGA...but since i own both consoles i guess i have no choice but to try it out on the 360..

    Well, obviously you're a genius because you know the difference between grammar and spelling. This is clearly the defining point of a genius, but let's not get ruffled over details.

    See, I can be a smartass too.

    So what? It doesn't change the fact that Bayonetta was made for newfags, with the whole "One handed mode" thing.

    It shows games and gamers are declining as a whole.

    Anyway, back to playing Uncharted 2 on my PS3, which is better than any 360 game ever made, even the first game had better graphics than any 360 game.

    Yea too bad a bunch of pictures released for 360 games are bullshots to the extreme - Gears and Forza 3 comes to mind. It's sad 360 gamers believe in those bullshots and when they're actually playing the game, they think it's actually that good, but sadly stills of actual in-game graphics are piss poor. Forza 3 is just slightly better than Forza 2, but F2's lighting is superior. And Gears 2 looks just like Gears 1, and absolutely no where near as good a quality as the bullshots. Even uncharted 1 looks leaps and bounds better than Gears 1. Piss poor 360.

    what the f are u talkin about uncharted 2 showed on previews it had good graphics and actually delivered, what has better graphics then uncharted 2 on the 360, no where and the console was released 1 full year later...

    ps3 does have potential and it is showing them, with the games.

    famitsu is a joke, its all about money

    want a perfect score? pay for one

    I played both bayonetta demos and thought the game was fucking atrocious, just the basic gameplay foundation is wrong, its just not fun at all.

    Sooner famitsu goes bust the better. Whats sad is people take those cunts reviews seriously.

    The one great thing MS has over Sony is a more liberal censorship policy towards it's 360 games than Sony and it's PS3 censorship policy which SUCKS.Even Nintendo has eased up ALOT on censorship compared to Sony.

    Sorry guys, as nice as Uncharted 2 is to look at and even play briefly, it's a pretty boring game and hohum property.I'll take Resistance/RS(even with all their imperfections) and even Uncharted 1 over Uncharted 2 anyday.

    Save for the embarrassing Very Easy Automatic crap, this does look like an outstandingly good 3D action title, there's almost no reason to question the score.

    There is, however, every reason to question Uncharted 2's. And what's up with SoulCalibur, Vagrant Story, Wind Waker, Nintendogs, FFXII, MGS4 and DQIX also getting perfect scores? All those games had important shortcomings: SC was too button-mashing friendly, VS's weapon creation feature was just too excruciatingly boring, WW could have used more dungeons, Nintendogs is a fucking joke of a non-game, XII plays itself about 80% of the time and is boring as all hell, MGS4 was admitedly quite a good movie (lulz), and there's just no way DQIX is better than VIII, not to mention the fact that it's the ugliest AND latest one of the list.

    One letter a a lot of text! You save one letter here then maybe you go somewhere else, you save another letter. Then you have one word. Then you take your word, you go to the Twitter website, you write something else!

    If you use "ne" "u" "ur" and other abbreviations, you'll automatically be seen as a troll or an idiot on the internet.

    It's as simple as that.

    Only newfags type so slow they need to use abbreviations. I type near fifty words a minute. So changing a three letter word to a two letter word is not at all necessary.

    I think 'ne' and 'any' are similar speeds to type, just because it's less letters, it doesn't necessitate time saved.

    She really doesn't look all that much like Sarah Palin. Just the "up-do" a bit, being white, and the glasses. By that basis there are any number of "glasses girls" that would fit the bill, it just so happens that Sarah Palin is high profile.

    Don't mind the anon with the hidden conservative itch between the legs.

    That's been a problem ever since she came to the national stage back in '08. It's still rankles the libertards' ego when this very successful lady with a sterling political record and pretty looks actually did what a good politician should always do. Weeding out the crime and corruption within the diseased halls of government as well as having a wonderful family with many kids.

    Don't forget that she was one hot young lady back in the day who knows how to hunt!

    I just thought the character looked like a skanky whore going for the "librarian" cosplay fetish.

    But no, she has a combo where she shoots guns with her feet. I'm sure there are people out there who think that's awesome, but eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehhhhh.......
