Platinum games are usually good games, but they never sell that well. Bayonetta is probably their biggest seller at 2.1m with MGS: Rising next at 1.9m, everything else has struggled to crack 1m. However they also make bad games. Last year for instance they gave us Turtles and StarFox both of which were bad and both of which bombed.
As for the scuttlebutt about Platinum being screwed over, I can't stand people posting tweets about how they know something that suggests such and such. Either say what you know or don't say anything. On a topic like this which is quite contentious the last thing we need are vague rumours.
Personally whilst I thought Scalebound sounded good it never really looked good when shown and the demos this year were especially ropey.
