Just got back from the Best Buy in Aurora/Naperville, IL and they already have Bayonetta out on the shelf for both 360 and PS3. On the BB site, it still lists it as a preorder, as does gamestop and amazon etc, so I guess this can be exciting for anyone psyched to get this game.

It was most likely an inventory/shelving error where they weren't supposed to put it out until next week, but it worked out for me. Anyway, hope this helps some of you other CAGs. ENJOY!

Not sure how this is a deal. I mean I appreciate you letting us know but this isnt a sale or a deal, its just a game on the shelf a week early.

I checked my BB store shelves today. No Bayonetta :( Ended up with the last copy of GH:Smash Hits though, so not a total loss, AND I got back 8 bucks from the pricing adjustment with True Blood last week :D

Not really a deal but thanks for the heads up. I would've been happy if you were to post a 50% discount coupon for this game, hahaa.

If I saw the PS3 version on the shelf I would take a shit on it. Seriously, its fucking embarrassing that shoddy ports like this are still coming out.

wait, I thought it was given the most attention on the PS3? that's what Kotaku and IGN always made it seem like..so the X360 is the superior version?

edit, and eff it OP, just b/c this isn't a deal and it's been posted before, its good looking out for people who want to get the game day one.

IGN has said in their review that the Xbox 360 version is vastly superior due to watered down textures in the PS3

Would this be the 1830 Towne Centre Drive,North Aurora, IL 60542 Best Buy? ...I'd love to play the game early, but I don't think I'm up for driving that far to play a game a few days early. I'd love to find an early copy in the O'Hare area.

360 was the lead platform for Bayonetta, not the PS3. PS3 is a port.

And a not great one, from the reviews I've seen.

ahh, thanks everyone for the input, I may have to check this out (credit burning a hole in my pocket)...but with Dante's Inferno and GoW III about to hit, I feel this may be one hack-n-slash too many for now!

Dante's Inferno is more of a hack and slash than Bayonetta. I dunno, I felt the DI demo was slow and boring. The upgrade system is pretty cool but combat is so slow and boring for me. GoW 3 demo was amazing and so was Bayonetta.

:lol::lol::lol::lol:

Played the demo and not for me. Don't forget that the 360 version is WAY BETTER than the PS3 version.

"Buyers beware, however: the 360 version is vastly superior to the PS3 version on a technical level, so PS3 owners fortunate enough to own a 360 should absolutely avoid the PS3 copy."

Thanks for posting, Jobberwock (people here can be grumbly PITAs). I may hit a BB today to see if I can pick it up.

And that will make them wish they had a 360 (that's my Microsoft conspiracy theory... haha!)

I'd paypal someone my daughter for a hot Eastern Massachusetts tip on where to get this four days early.

Why Sega street dated this until after Christmas and when most people have time off is a warcrime.

from ign.

"Unfortunately, the PS3 port of Bayonetta is a very disappointing piece of software. I love Bayonetta -- just look at my review of the 360 version for proof. But Bayonetta on the PS3 is a whole different beast.

The PS3 version has a lot of problems, primary among them being the excessive slowdown and loading. During certain scenes of high action, Bayonetta can slow down dramatically, enough to affect the gameplay experience. I can usually tolerate that sort of issue to an extent, but the loading problems are simply unacceptable."


regardless, i'm still getting it!

I just picked this up in Lynchburg, VA. It was on the shelf last week but I wasn't going to pay full price. I ended up receiving an extra copy of NSMB as a gift last night that I went ahead and took in to exchange today.

Yeah I thought the game was actually released because it was on mine about a week or so ago. Good reviews so far I'll probably pick it up in a few months.
