The producer of Wii U exclusive Bayonetta 2 has expressed his frustration with rude requests for the game to be ported to other systems.
Platinum Games' JP Kellams said he hates posting anything on the Bayonetta Facebook page as what always follows is “pedantic port-begging”.
“It's been over a year since we announced,” tweeted Kellams.
“We heard you. We get it. We are just happy that we get to make Bayonetta 2 for the patient fans.”
After numerous challenges to his attitude, Kellams clarified that it was just those who used inappropriate forums to express their anger that annoyed him.
“I don’t think it is cool to post ‘fack shit its not on ps T_T’ on cosplay pictures,” he wrote.
“It isn’t cool to that cosplayer or other fans.
“Dear sites spinning tweets: I don’t hate any gamers or passionate fans. This is what doesn’t sit right with me,” Kellams added.
“I never insulted anyone. I expressed frustration at a certain group’s behavior. I did so without vitriol.”
Kellams said the industry shouldn’t accept such aggression from the gaming community and then complain when it was mocked for being immature.
“Right now we are creating a culture that pressures us to tolerate our worst instead of appealing to better angels,” he wrote.
“I’ve never met a single one who doesn’t spend all day thinking of ways to make you have fun. None of us hate gamers. You feed our families.
“I wish some people kept this in mind when dealing with others. Of course, None of this is going to make a good newsbyte, but it’s 101% true.”
The original Bayonetta was published by Sega and released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2010. It looked like a sequel was off the cards until Nintendo agreed to publish it last year.
Bayonetta 2 is due out for Wii U sometime in 2014.
