Rayman Legends Revelation – Great For Most Gamers, Terrible For Wii U Owners

"Ubisoft have now decided to release the title on the PS3 and Xbox360, with the Wii U version – previously set for sale later this month – now delayed considerably to coincide with the launch on those other platforms.

"For most gamers, this news has come as an absolute delight. However, the news has understandably gone down less well with Wii U owners." (Culture, PS3, Rayman Legends, Wii U, Xbox 360)

lol..first off its nothing for wiiu owners...we are getting a great games and the best versions...so haters should be happy they are getting rayman instead of writing silly articles...

I'm just disappointed that it has been pushed back so far. They may lose my sale because of that. Who knows what I'll be saving/spending my money on come September? I could be saving for a new console or buying some games that I would prefer over Rayman.

Agree, plus Mario, Mario Kart, and Zelda are also coming out during the last half of the year. Which do people want more, a brand new 3D mario game or a Rayman game?

They could have released it now, while there is very little competition

OMg! Did you guys know that Call od Duty Black OPs 2 is coming out or is it out- it looks freaking amazing- That guy looks real! Like a real actor, but he has to be graphics because who would dress a n actor so lame to advertise a game?

Anyway,

It stinks but it makes sense financially. It does not make as much sense as I would hope, given the fact that the WiiU's launch is not a flop it's just not as good as the Wii launch.

Unfortunately,
this is the way of the future according to UBIsoft in other interviews. There will be no exclusives- because of the price of making games on the new systems and PC. Ubisoft is trying to make money everywhere they can in preparation for the Next Gen graphics push.

But I am sure that these events will help push the FALSE-narrative that developers are losing faith in WiiU.

When you see places like THQ go down, you want to make the most money you can and making for all 3 systems is a great choice and all gamers will get to enjoy it, it's win/win.

You don't get the most money by releasing your game next to GTA 5 and next to first party Nintendo titles if you are releasing it on a Nintendo console, which they are.

The game was supposed to come out in a couple weeks. It is probably finished, so they should have just released it, then started working on a port.

It's not the loss of exclusivity that's the problem, it's the delay of the Wii U version.
DivineAssault  +   528d ago
im actually am on your side about that.. It is BS that wii u owners are stuck waiting 7 months because of this but thats because of microsofts contracts.. They wont allow the game on their system unless its released simultaneously.. They do the same to sony by not allowing more content or improved engines if they are to release the game on xbox as well.. Its effed up & i wanna sell my wii u now because i have nothing to play for a very VERY long time. Bayo 2 or X wont be out for god knows how long so i have no need for it now

I think it might do badly now. Just because of everything that should be coming out around that time frame. Nintendos side Mario Zelda maybe X, and the new ps4 and Xbox should be coming out. That's a lot competition and a lot of money going towards those thing rayman would be put on the back burner

Wow... It's a great thing that more gamers will get to experience this now, but, damn, was a delay really needed? If they intend to release this for $60, they can shove their game up their greedy ***.

Isn't that the standard US game pricing?
PygmelionHunter  +   528d ago
Yes, it is, it's just that, had the game followed its previous release schedule, the price would have gone down a lot by September... Not to mention how much of a BS move this is to people who were eagerly waiting for this game.

so i recently picked up donkey kong country returns for wii and i'm playing it on the wii u. i love it, its a very fun and challenge game. i'd recommend it to anyone who wants a great platformer to play.

i played the demo rayman orgins on ps3 and for legends on wii u. and it wasn't a game i planned on getting.

But for what it’s worth, it can be had new for around 29.99 and I find the platforming way better than rayman.
