I have absolutely no problem with ubisoft porting rayman over to xbox/ps3, but to do it so close to launch is what makes me a bit upset...

Why not just do it as a timed-exclusive? Tecmo is porting over Ninja Gaiden: Razor's Edge to the 360 and PS3, but they didn't hold the Wii U version and wait to release all simultaneously. And Tecmo is a smaller company than Ubisoft so them having to pay for marketing twice on the game would effect them more than it would Ubisoft. Apparently they aren't phased by such details.

What makes this even more stupid is that there really isn't anything coming out out this month that would be a threat to it. Now you release the game in September to go against Grand Theft Auto 5?????

The delay makes no sense to me either. We are not alone

Because of the Price Is Right losing horn comment. You sir are getting a bubble vote.

They might be smaller but I actually question if Tecmo Koei is making more money than Ubisoft. Could be possible.

Just plain stupid can't believe the decision to make WiiU owners wait they have the superior version so why not give it to them now and let 360 ect wait as they wern't even expecting the game to be released on their consoles so it's easy just make them wait and give WiiU owners their game.

Hmmm, wasn't that "innovative" message leaving ZombieU feature he mentioned also in Demon Souls?
