    With Platinum's latest two titles Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2 coming exclusively to Wii U with Nintendo even financing Bayonetta, It seems Nintendo is warming up Platinum for some sort of purchase, even just a stake in the company and make it 2nd party.

    What do you guys think, do you think Miyamoto and Kamiya the men behind Zelda and Okami being under the same roof would be a good thing?

    No, it's more expensive. It also looks better still being able to call it "third-party support" in their current position.

    I sure hope not, I hope they stay a pretty independent studio like Treasure.

    It might be a bit early to go that route. Only Platinum game I've played was MadWorld, which didn't quite live up to expectations. Nintendo can always work with them on games without owning them like they did with Silicon Knights to make Eternal Darkness.

    If the price is right, absolutely. Nintendo needs to broaden their appeal, and it would be a good first step in getting there. It's either the shortcut of snapping up some studios that lie outside their core demo or building them from scratch.

    (That said, it'll never happen.)

    Well, it was more directed to people that ask him the "Is Bayonetta in Smash Bros?" question 1000 times a day. I would tell them to fuck off too.

    Platinum Games are bad ass. Whether they're with Nintendo or not, I love them all the same.
