Rayman Legends has lost its Wii U exclusivity. Ubisoft has confirmed that the game will be also be released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Well, that's great, more people get to play this fantastic looking game. Please try to keep the fanboy comments to a minimum guys and try to act like grownups. That goes for PS, Nintendo and Xbox fanboys. Sucks that all versions have been delayed until September though. Releasing it in February may have pushed me to get a Wii U sooner.
Like I said the Wii U was designed to capitalize on the multi-platform games for the PS3 and 360 given its hardware specs and its capabilities. Which is good because it means more longevity, and more multi-platform games are sure to come this year and the next for PS3 & 360. Resident Evil: Revelations Ninja Gaiden: Razor's Edge Rayman Legends what else? Anyways Nintendo really needs to launch their premier exclusive games fast enough to waste 2013.
I don't care that a game goes multi-platform, but what bugs the hell out of me is when they say it's "EXCLUSIVE", but it's timed exclusive. I feel like they're a bunch of damned liars when that happens... and I can't stand a liar.
That's a terrible business plan. Why buy a Wii U just to get a slightly better version of a game you could get for one of the consoles you probably already own. The investment doesn't seem justified at this point.Hopefully they drop a shit load of stuff post E3
non of these "timed exclusive" games interest me.
It's not even times exclusive anymore. Ask versions release in September
to other platforms but those other platforms wont have the tablet interface like the wii-u version will use. Its great when more can enjoy a good game but the changes made to accommodate can be something to take into consideration when picking the version to get. At least for those who have multiple systems to buy it on. If you only have one and its coming out and you want to get it...its all good.
I always thought it was multiplatform since the game's existence was leaked.
At the end of the day Third party publishers are gonna look at the huge install bases of PS360. This is the second time in a row. Nintendo will have an extremely hard time convincing third party publishers to keep their games exclusive. Hate to say it but, another exclusive bites the dust on Nintendo.
Another September title eh, it may just end up as a launch title after all.
"Like I said the Wii U was designed to capitalize on the multi-platform games for the PS3 and 360 given its hardware specs and its capabilities" Yes, looking at the ps3 with its specialized hardware and six-axis, it's clear that developers want to spend special attention on one of the multiplat versions to take advantage. /s
More and more TIMED exclusives on Nintendo and Microsoft consoles/handheldconsoles. LMSAO. Totally Expected
Agreed. Everyone deserves a little piece of the cake. Sucks that it's been delayed, tough. Unfortunately, the fanboys are sure to come to this kind of posts like a swarm of bees. Nintendo fanboys will be "noooo, it was an exclusive" Sony and Xbox fanboys will be "yes, told you so" Oh well...
*looks at the lower comments* Yep looks like it's happening already. I'm just glad more people get to play this game. However others are glad not because they get to play a great game, but because Nintendo lost an exclusive and it makes them more happy than anything. They're glad for the wrong reasons. And of course the others would be upset because they no longer have an exclusive despite the fact that they still get to play the game anyway. Gamers these days (especially on this site) just make me shake my head at their immature behavior due to brand loyalty.
I think Ubisoft should've held of this announcement until after they sold the Wii U version just my opinion. Anyhow this is great news to Rayman fans.
No, Nintendo fans don't react in that manner. The general consensus that I've seen from all of them regarding this news is that they don't give a flying duck about it going to the PS3 or 360 at all. The only thing that aggravates them is that the release date got pushed back from a few weeks to 7 months.
Oh yeah!! I love Rayman Origins, its in my top 10 games of the generation. I'm stoked it's coming to a console I already own. Thanx for sharing Ubisoft.
If any of your so precious ps3 exclusives was coming to the Wii U would you say the same?
hahaha, oh no, no Don. You have Jamal confused. I don't think he's a big gamer on the PS3 going by a number of his comments. You probably should have checked them out before making the assumption that he even owns a PS3.
I think Nintendo will need to make clear and make an argument to why people should buy this game on their console then get it for the PS3/360 However if this was a game people were going to get a Wii U for then they've now lost potential sales
Exactly what is happening with me. When I played the demo on the Wii U I was SOLD. Was picking it up day 1. Now with this news.....not so sure Nintendo will get the sale from me. Might pick it up for the PS3 now. I'd be pissed if I were Nintendo. If the gamepad features are cool enough to warrant a Wii U purchase then that will persuade me.
is the tablet controller and how it will be used with the game. You dont have that on 360 or ps3. does that mean the 360 or ps3 version will be any less fun??? not likely but it wont be the same. That is usually what separates one from the other
@darthv72 Cross-controller and surface features are looking at you. Not to mention Move or Kinect, with wich you can drag and move objects directly on the TV screen without a need for a tablet's screen.
Bayonetta 2 is next. Everything is going by my road map.
Hopefully I can't buy all three next gen consoles but I wouldn't want to get a Wii U JUST for Bayonetta. They could of gotten a publisher to publisher B2 for other consoles aswell, Konami has been working with them and they've said they've enjoyed working with PG so I don't see why they didn't ask them to publish B2 for all consoles. I think B2 will come to the PS4/720 in some shape or form.
It won't be done for a long time though if at all. The difference between rayman and bayonetta 2 are the publishers. Ubisoft is publishing rayman so they can kinda do what they want. Nintendo is publishing bayonetta two so PG is under whatever Nintendo says. Though their contract with Nintendo could be for a couple years i don't know. I don't care if bayonetta 2 comes to other consoles i honestly hate console exclusitivity. Except for brands done by Microsoft Sony or Nintendo. A la Halo, Mario, God of war.
Nintendo is publishing Bayonetta 2. It can only go multiplatform if the contract is written up in such a way that the rights dissappear after a certain time frame. You could see it released next gen on all consoles digitally possibly, but I doubt it. I'm pretty sure Nintendo has this one completely tied down. Rayman Legends was simply Ubisoft deciding to release it exclusively on Wii U, and then changing their minds.
Nintendo has publishing rights over Bayonetta 2. But maybe there are shortcuts around that, like Tecmo did with Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2.
Mass Effect 1 WAS published by Microsoft. You all know what happened next.
I just hope for a good online coop, origin was begging for it
good thing it's getting released on other consoles, tough i still want it on the PC. the only thing i don't understand is why saying it's exclusive if it isn't? it's almost like they act and plan this things on instinct.
I kept on saying that Rayman Legends will never stay exclusive only to get disagreed into infinity. Redemption. feels so so good.
yep, and why get it for a ps3 or 360 when i can play this on the wiiU Game-Pad. (:
