Sincerest thanks to all of you who’ve supported Bayonetta over the last ten years. Today is a momentous occasion for me, and it’s all because of your tremendous love.

Bayonetta was my very first title here at PlatinumGames, and I went into it with a lofty goal – to make the best action game I possibly could. I poured my all into the game with that feeling firmly in mind.

Now, ten years later, as I look back on those development days, I see peaks and valleys, good times and bad. But our staff pulled together through it all and, working as one, I think we managed to pull off something truly miraculous.

To everyone who’s been involved with the Bayonetta series, and to all of the Bayonetta fans who’ve helped us get here: Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I hope you’ll follow Bayonetta’s adventures, and continue to love and support her for years to come.

Wow, can't believe it's been 10 years since the original Bayonetta came out. Time sure flies fast, SW. Which got me thinking.. what were you playing 10 years ago? Below are a list of critically acclaimed games from 2009. I remember getting Uncharted 2 when it came out. It's a classic! Modern Warfare 2 and Killzone 2 as well. Killzone 2 will forever be one of the most underappreciated games in SW history lol. I think you can say similar things for LittleBigPlanet. As for Bayonetta, I don't remember if I played it at launch. I remember the PS3 version being inferior to the Xbox version. I eventually played it when Bayonetta 2 came. And now I look forward to the third game so much. Well anyway. Your thoughts, SW? Fan of the series? Couldn't care less? And what games were you playing 10 years ago?

..Oh and Demon Souls! Kicked my ass but eventually I beat it :)

In 2009 I was cought by surprise just how good Left 4 Dead 2 turned out. Such an amazing game that was produced just in a year's time. It added so much to the L4D formula and absolutely enjoyed finishing each level in Expert mode with some really dedicated people, who I still have on my steam friends list to this day.

That's another good one. I remember PS3 getting snubbed on that game. It was another reason why the 360 was such a great shooter console.

I had just gotten my PS3 slim not long after it came out. So I was probably playing the 1st game I got for PS3, which was Battlefield: Bad Company 1. Interestingly, I also got the Bayonetta PS3 port a few weeks after release (despite it's issues). But apparently that must have been in November 2019 since today is the 10 year anniversary of Bayonetta.

I remember at this time I was also wrapping up my 100% run of Metroid Prime for Gamecube, but a glitch in the stats had me forever stuck at like 99.8%.

Bayonetta released in North America in early 2010, it would make more sense to show games that released from that point onward because it was a pretty packed window from that point on. Many games pushed away from holiday release window at the time out of fears of having to go up against COD. Ironically, early 2010 was three straight months packed with big releases.

Anyhow, might be easier for me to say what I didn't play back then. I kept up with a lot. Played Bayonetta at release, as well as many others.

I was way into Rock Band back then. Think I also had Mirror's Edge and Soul Calibur 4. Bayonetta was great though, even the janky PS3 port. I couldn't get into God of War 3 after experiencing Bayonetta.

I wasn’t. I took a sabbatical from 2007-2009 and picked up playing in the early part of 2010. But I did get to kick it off with Halo 3 and UC2. I also recall Demon’s Souls, Mirror’s Edge, and Castle Crashers.

I played tons of that list, but Street Fight 4 was easily my favorite. Uncharted 2, Demon's Souls, Fallout, Little Big Planet, GTA 4 and story DLC and Assassin's Creed 2 were all great games.

Can't remember playing that many games in 2009. I had a ps3 and 360 back then so likely had played whatever console games were out that year.

I know for sure I was playing beta and later on the full version of Aion. It was an online game I had been following for around a year before that.
