Nintendo Fans Overwhelm uPlay Miiverse Community With Rayman Anger

Svend Joscelyne: ''So Rayman Legends on Wii U has been delayed, so that it can launch simultaneously with the newly-announced PS3 and Xbox 360 versions. Whatever you may think of that, spare a thought for these poor souls on Nintendo's Miiverse.

A group of (naturally) Nintendo fans have decided to use Ubisoft's Uplay Miiverse Community to express their utter disgust at the seven month delay. Snapshots of some of the best ones have spread online - ranging from some rather inventive (if questionable) drawings to simply re-naming the company "Ubi-Shat".'' ; (Miiverse, Rayman Legends, Wii U)

Ubisoft did the exact same with Assassins Creed 1 on the PS3, so there is no need for Wii U owners to act so surprised.

They're a 3rd party publisher with strong links to both Sony (exclusive DLC's) & Microsoft (Splinter Cell series), so it makes sense for them to simultaneously release Rayman Legends on the 2 extra consoles that have an 140+ million install base.

(Some of those pictures were pretty funny though!)

Peoples issue with this is 100% about the delay and 0% about it coming to the PS3/360.

I don't know who disagreed with lilbroRx but he's right. OK, maybe 99% about the delay. I'm sure there's a couple crazy fanboys who just straight up hate PS3 and 360, but they don't speak for the whole.

i'd be expecting zombie u going to xbl and psn probably in a few months. i dont understand the same behaviour by nintendo and people expecting a different result. nintendo wii was a mistake that capitalized mostly on the fact that the ps3 and the xbox cost 2 to 3 times more in most regions.

the wii u hardware is weak so its dead by the time next gen systems ar out and will only have to rely on first party titles. also nintendo wont have as many first party titles being released like in the past because we are in the hd era or they are in the hd era where it takes a bit longer to develop games in hd than in sd.

a lot of people are waiting for the big nintendo exclusives but those people have a wii u already. wii u is literally over because i constantly see games being cancelled and games that were recently exclusives are going multiplatform.

So Nintendoods have too much to draw nonsense, why, Wii U no games?

Unfortunately the dev's don't call the shots, the suits in the boardroom do.

Star Wars Battlefront 3 (according to the former co-founder of Free Radical: Steve Ellis) was 99% complete & was in bug testing, before it was canned by corporate due to publishing/ marketing costs.

Look on the brightside, at least Rayman has a launch window & whilst 6 months late, it is still definitely coming!

Dylila: it won't. MS won't allow the game to release on the console after it has already released on another console platform. It either releases simultaneously or it doesn't at all, and that's why this happened. This has happened with PSN releases before.

Anyone still think any kind of MS dominance is good for the industry?

I will log in to U play after work (Im at work shhhh) tonight and let them know how I feel! Oh and you bet I will also voice my opinion with my wallet and just skip this title on all platforms! Maybe buy a used one when its $10.

Note to self:
#Don't say anything foolish in Miiverse because it might get published in a article, or recorded on video.#

i know it's cool lol

at least we can rightfully trash talk and the suits can see it first hand now.

That's how Nintendo said in their direct cast that they kept hearing about X & Y

Already the second article of the day about the same exact thing.

I own all the consoles right now, so it going to others didn't bother me, but as a Wii U owner it bothers me because there is no reason not to release the Wii U version as planned. Ninja Gaiden Razors Edge was released first on Wii U, then it was ported and will be released on Xbox 360/PS3 later this year, so why cant they do that with this game?

The Wii U's launch was pretty fair, but the games have been slow in coming since that time, a lot of Wii U owners would have bought the game, now it gets lost in the next gen shuffle later this year.

That summed up many people's feelings perfectly. Well said.
FamilyGuy  +   537d ago
No one is even going to be thinking about this game in that release windows time frame. With next gen systems on the horizon it'll get overlooked and undersold, what a waste of every bodies time as well as being a delayed paycheck from sales they could be making now.

They definitely should release in now but MS has always enforced this strict rule of "release OUR version at the same time, FIRST or you can't release it on our system."

Last image was good XD Seriously Ubisoft, just release the game for the wii u folks since its all done!

Gamers really need to calm the F down. it's a game and people should want others to enjoy good games.

When did Rayman have such a following in the first place? excusives for a new machine makes no business sense unless the graphical and technical gap is massive. I have the wii u and love it and i also have the ps3/360 and enjoy them but right now they have the bigger install base. Had Nintendo made the wii powerful in the first place they would not be in such a position as they sold sh1t loads and are global leaders. Wii u has only just come out and will take time to build momentum. Poor marketing and too much focus on the controller is taking away from have brilliant the system is.

PS I love Mii Verse and should be implemented across the board so companies get first hand reactions and not internet trolled
delboy  +   537d ago
I love miiverse.
DivineAssault  +   537d ago
i would be super pissed off too if i were a rabid nintendo fan.. 7 month delay is a effin long time.. Then, all the people who bought wii u just for rayman this month are left to dry for a very long time until something good comes out exclusively.. I honestly want to sell my wii u now.. I have absolutely NO reason to own it this early anymore.. I want bayo 2 but who knows? that might go multiplat too like NG razors edge did.. Published by nintendo or ME 1 did, published by MS.. PS consoles get all that is great from AAA 3rd party so i will always back them without doubt.. I had my doubts about buying PU
