Sounds like a lame bs excuse to me. Especially if the WiiU version is practically done.

"We usually release all of our platforms simultaneously (aside from PC). We've made special exception sometimes in the past but it's definitely just on a case by case basis and not our standard practice."

I guess the WiiU wasn't special enough. Sad when just 8 months ago they were praising the WiiU for it's innovation and promised a firm commitment. Just a big lie now

Dont freaken support them then. If its all about the dollar then we will speak loudly! And dont get it twisted I own all systems!

Microsoft wont take on a multiplatform game if they don't get it first. That's pretty much all there is to it.

I bet the 360 version won't even sell much. I don't care about this game but it seems like the Wii U game should be released now and the others later. Dumb to hold a game up most of a year just to make other versions. This is more of a game for people who would prefer the Wii U anyway.

dennett3161264d ago

Origins on both 360 and PS3 sold less than a million copies each.
The Wii U version of Legends would most likely sell more than both combined due to the lack of games released on the Wii U right now, and the time of the year it was to be released.

In short, Ubisoft are absolute idiots of the highest calibre.

If that was the case, then why didn't Ubisoft make the game multiplatform 6 months ago? It would have saved everyone the hassle. What? It's only now that they figured out that Microsoft doesn't accept ports?

Erimgard1264d ago

Presumably Wii U sales are below what Ubisoft is hoping for, and the outrage from PS3/Xbox fans combined with that to change their minds.

@Erimgard

What outrage at PS3/360 fans? I've yet to see anyone go...oh why is on the Wii U first?

Wii U sales are pretty close. Whether it's 3 or 3.5 million by now isn't that big of a difference.

ALL CONSOLE have crappy sales the first couple of years.

It's the reason why games continued to be released on PS2/xbox and NOT 360/PS3 when those systems launched.

Same thing will happen with 360/PS3 getting games and PS4/720 won't.

Happens with every console.

But this isn't about that. It's about a game being made and then holding off for another 7 months or so. After of course delaying it from launch title in November.

Ubi trolled...They could not delay Assassins creed 3 for 3 weeks when Wii U version dropped, but they can delay a finished Wii U Rayman for 7 months...

KrisButtar1264d ago

You know that's what came to my mind to, but I would guess that the install base has to do with it as well

solboogie1263d ago

So true do you feel shafted? Did they do use dirty? It time to return the favor and hit them where it hurts their bottom line the all mighty dollar. Dont buy this game.

Stick ya game now where the sun don't shine, to many good games around that time to bother with this
