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. (:
The real question is, why get a Wii U when I can play this on a 360/PS3 pad.
well, it sucks that it was delayed, it was nearly finished.. at least they could release on Wii U and to other platforms later.. well, just canceled my preorder.. :/ too bad..
The negativity with Nintendo's Wii U and games availability are going from bad to worse. The fact that the Wii U version is practically done and it will sit on the shelf till Sept is ridiculous. Nintendo needs to loosen that purse string and get this game released sooner... we all know that money talks... go ask Microsoft.
Go ask Sony and all delusional ps3 fanboys? I'm not trying to be mean but there's time you should realise that all those jrpgs on the ps3 were made by Sony's money.Sony spends a lot more on games in contrast to Microsoft.Stop it right now with the whole Microsoft buys games and Sony just earns them for free out of good will.
Great for gamers bad for WiiU as this is WiiUs best game for the first half of 2013 easily. I played the demo on a WiiU and it blew me away for a 2D platformer it was amazing and it almost made me walk over to the counter and buy a WiiU but obviously releasing on a new console marred with under sales has forced Ubisofts hand on this game. But like I said great for gamers as now I can pick this up on my PS3 so no need to pick that WiiU up until it finally drops in price and hopefully just in time for Smash Bros or Mario Kart as thats all non Nintendo hardcores are waiting for really..
this was to be expected and maybe they shouldn't have delayed the wii-u version if it was ready. but maybe it has something to do with their fiscal year report and it makes sense to release it once and get ads budget for one campaign for all 3 consoles instead of doing once for wii-u version than doing it again for other systems also that way they wouldn't be able to charge full price for ps3 and xbox360 version if they both came 6 months after the original release now i am only guessing on UBI knows
RAYMAN > CoD
Well ,well, now I don't have that game to get for my wiiu wich I was looking forward too since there's not anything but Lego city coming and I'm not getting that what's next pikmin3 getting pushed back too. I think I might be selling my wiiu. Nintendo I don't know how u screwed this up,big launch with games that where out on other systems already ,and a dry spell on games to come or not to come. And Nintendo fanboys back off. It's true I will have my wiiu collecting dust. So y keep it ,there is a hand full of games coming in the next 7 months and Nintendo direct gave us nothing but teaser trailers and the full trailers with tba no dates at all .they tried beating the next gen systems ,instead beat us with delays and a hand full of upcoming games. I am expressing my feelings and I'm upset with the money I spent on it,
Very good. Was hopeing for a Vita release but this very good. Hmm September possible PS4 release as well?
"Fans will be able to grab Legends for either platform in September. Unfortunately, the Wii U version has now been delayed from February 26 to September as well." Uh, oh. Shitstorm coming in 3... 2... 1... I would love to see KingofWiiU's reaction to this. He must be frothing at the mouth, lol, especially considering how many times he stated this game wasn't possible on PS3 and Xbox 360. XD
I wonder what happened to LX General Chaos who had like 6 different accounts here on N4G...
Did you not hear he was shot down when he tried to break into Nintendos HQ and kidnap Iwata so he could groom him.
Honestly I'm completely shocked, not about it going multiplat, but the SEVEN month delay. I thought the game was almost finished??
Yeah, I can't help but feel like this is a big middle finger to Wii U users who were looking forward to playing this game in less than a month... :/
It is but the problem is they release now on WiiU and later on other consoles nobody will buy a 7 month old game unless its AAA we seen it in the past. Its a sad fact.. And with a great game like this they should hold it back which is a shame really for WiiU gamers but at least all gamers get to play now :). Thats right GAMERS.
@deafdani, Gamer 1982, I agree with both of you. I blame Nintendo for this. If they're going to claim "launch window" they better make sure of that first. Also since many people assumed it was a Wii U launch title, it'll feel like an 11 month delay to them. wtf I love games going multiplat. More people being able to buy a game on their only system or their system of choice is a good thing.
Did anyone really expect Ubisoft to miss out on a combined install base of over 140 million consoles? Anyways im glad that its coming to the 360 and the PS3 even though the Wii U version will probably be the best one in terms of visuals. "Fans will be able to grab Legends for either platform in September. Unfortunately, the Wii U version has now been delayed from February 26 to September as well." They probably want the Wii Us install base to be a bit bigger which is probably why they delayed it. Also its the holiday season which is the perfect time to push a bundle with this game that is if Nintendo allows that to happen.
It's likely delayed So they only need to do one round of advertising rather than two
Sad for Nintendo but god i wanted legends and i bought origins day 1 on ps3. Also CALLED IT! when they all of a sudden announced it was gonna be wiiu exclusive, i just expected that it would be timed exclusive, but now it is multiplatform. @WiiuLee All versions will come out in September the wiiu version has also been delayed.
LMMFAO! I just argued w a troll about this too! I effin knew it! Bayonetta 2 is next! tho it may take a year or so.. Damn, nintendo just cant keep good games to themselves.. I guess ubisoft used that system as a test subject to get this game the way they wanted.. wow, i kinda feel bad about this lol.. September tho?? Thats a long time away for wii u owners who planned to get it this month.. PS3 is going out with a BANG! NG razors edge & this has made me happy & ill be broke this year from all the damn games plus a new console i have to get.. The joy Oh & wolf my boy i wasnt talking about u.. But since u feel inclined to speak, u must feel guilty of being a troll.. Go to your cave & think evil thought while u wait 7 months for this game ok.. No1 wants to hear your nonsense
Man, I will repeat my statement, in case that you didn't read it (pretty sure that's what happened): I didn't say it was impossible to happen, and in fact, I don't care if they do; more than anything, everyone should enjoy all good games. The only thing I told you is to wait for confirmations, like this article. That way you don't sound as a hater or a fanboy. Next time you wanna call someone a troll, tell me in my face. So I can prove you otherwise.
Bayonetta will never happen since it's being published by Nintendo themselves. This is great news though. Love the ps vita one a lot.
umm forgive me if im wrong but didnt nintendo publish NG razors edge too?? that only goes so far man.. Look at ME 1, published by microsoft & is on PS3 now.. Its not impossible so never say never my friend.. PS will & always does get all that is great from 3rd party eventually.. Thats why im always confident in buying PS consoles.. I know for a fact that ill be able to get everything thats released outside of 1st & 2nd party titles
@Divine They didn't publish NG in Japan which is the only place it's become multiplat. Bayonetta won't become multiplat because Nintendo published the game everywhere.
Is that supposed to tick me off? Sweet, so mature... First, I'll excuse me for felling aluded, as we had a little argument over the same thing yesterday. What, do you think I follow you every action? How would I know you were talking about someone else? Now tell me, what proofs do you have of me being a troll? What I'm doing is speaking my mind, as anyone here does. I don't feel guilty of that. And what if a group of people don't want to hear MY opinion? It's mine alone. I have the right to speak. And as with every comment, there are people that agree or disagree with their authors. You can't speak for EVERYONE as you claim. Now, enjoy you "victory" over a "troll" as me. For me, I never lost. I would have played this game anyways.
Bayonetta 2 is a differnt kettle of fish as Nintendo pumped money into development and probably have like a year or 2 exclusive deal clause on that title in return. So I doubt we will see that one.
Uh, NO Bayonetta's IP was bought by Nintendo, so there is NO WAY it will ever come to PS360. Sorry dude. Nintendo owns it.
obvious when you know ubisoft politic.
Only if beyonetta 2 had the same fate ...
I hope the same happens with Bayonetta 2, for this gen consoles or next I know I know it's published by Nintendo but I thought the same when Mass Effect was published my MS or how Ninja Gaiden 2 was published by them aswell Never say never I say
Dont forget Grand theft auto, Metal gear solid, Abe's (original xbox game) something adventure, tomb raider series started exclusive to the pc.
Dat Wii U third party situation
Hell yeah! :D
I predict now Bayonetta 2 will suffer the same fate...
Its seems it might be a domino effect. Ninja Gaiden Razor's Edge, Rayman Legends_____ insert next game here* Nintendo is doing the impossible, hell if MS couldn't get 3rd party exclusivity anymore what does Nintendo think it can accomplish? Very sad time for Nintendo and its fans.
