Bargain Roundup: Aussie Bayonetta 2 deals (what little there is)

Get set for disappointment! No, not with Bayonetta 2 itself at all but with the amount of deals around for the game. There’s next to nothing, mainly because the department stores aren’t at war with each other. It is MA15+ rated game on a Nintendo console after all.

It’s so bad that Target isn’t even stocking the game at all, Big W doesn’t have it list yet and K-Mart… well they’re more interested in selling $3 toasters that 10 year olds made in a foreign country.

So here they, your Bayonetta 2 bargains.

Note: All Aussie copies of the game come with the original Bayonetta on another disc.

    Nintendo have done an absolutely appalling job in marketing this game. For a game that has received almost unanimous acclaim from critics, you’d think that Nintendo would have tried just a little harder. The latest Big W catalogue makes no mention of the game, though it does include the new DIsney title for 3DS as well as the new Just Dance game.

    Under ordinary circumstances, the combo pack would have been made available for $59 or so at launch, but even at $69, I feel that it’s a steal considering the inclusion of the first game (which most Nintendo gamers probably haven’t had a chance to play).

    Sigh. While I suspected this would be the case, I was hoping for some more store coverage. ANY new retail Wii U game is most welcome on store shelves, especially an exclusive title that has all the critics nerdgasming so much.

    That said, it’s good to see it being pushed on the eShop, with the Direct and the demo. Here’s hoping (optimistically) that it gets some good sales figures!

    I preordered mine from EB for the bonus carrots and just incase stores don’t stock enough copies. I don’t think many department stores will even get 1 copy so it’s either EB or JB but I will definitely try to price match JB. It’s gotten over a 90 on metacritic already and comes with a free game, but this is the launch it’s getting? Quite sad if you ask me, but I think everyone who wanted this game already is fine paying $70/80 for it instead of the $60 Big W or Target should’ve been selling it for.

    You guys aren’t genuinely surprised that Nintendo hasn’t been heavily marketing this game are you?
    The hyper sexualised lead doesn’t exactly fit Nintendo’s family friendly image. The target demographic already know about the game, and those who really loved the first one will buy a Wii U to play it. Those who don’t or won’t get on board will complain on twitter again, providing Nintendo with plenty of free publicity.
    I loved the first game (enough to get the titular character tattooed on my arm) and thought the sexual nature of the game was so overt and comically over the top, that you couldn’t possibly take it seriously.
    But plenty of people did, and it was heavily criticised for objectifying women, being sexist, misogynistic etc…
    All you need is one article with Bayonetta and “rape culture” in the title along with a few selective screenshots, and you have yourself an angry mob of zealots with pitchforks at the ready.
    Nintendo doesn’t need *that* kind of publicity.

    Do we know for sure NZ/Aus copies come with Bayonetta 1 on a separate disc?

    Just asking because if Nintendo Aus tried to pull some cheap crap and give us a download code instead I’d just import from UK – so was just wondering if it had been confirmed. Cheers.

    Being bundled with the original, this is a bargain no matter which way you look at it.

    Is the original Bayonetta game in a separate case like in Europe or within the one case like USA?

    They didn’t have a copy …

    plus the website webpage is removed ….

    Yeah the game is hard to find. I was planning on grabbing it at JB but couldn’t and managed to find the last copy at Big W which was behind the counter ($68). Anyone who wants a physical copy of the Australian release should probably grab it asap.

    I got mine for $68 at Big W.
    Didn’t expect the two games to be in complete separate cases, which is a real bonus.

    I’m never been a fan of this genre of game but after reading all the reviews and the fact that the deal ($68 for the two games) made me rush out and buy it.

    Also, as a Nintendo fan, I felt like this is the kind of thing I should be supporting on a Nintendo console. I really hope it sells well.
