I’m Not Mad, I’m Just Disappointed About Rayman Legends

GameInformer, Kyle Hilliard- "On the one hand, I am happy to see Rayman Legends coming to other consoles. I had the privilege of checking out the game at E3 last year and writing an extended hands-on preview of the game for a recent issue of the magazine. Rayman Legends is one of the games I am most excited to play this year, and I am happy that the available audience that will get to play it has effectively tripled. I am rooting for the Wii U, and this is a blow to the system’s health, but in the long run, I want more people to be able to play the games that I think will be great, rather than claim supreme exclusivity.

On the other hand, however, I am not happy that the finished game is going to stew for seven months while it gets ported."

I didn't realize it was a 7 month delay. That is terrible. They should of released it on Wii U and then released it for other systems when the port gets finished. Why do this? This is the crap Square did when they ported the Xbox version of FFXIII. Also, 7 months? So it will launch on Wii U and also on the PS4? That will make the Wii U version look double worse as it's getting released on a potential system that will be possibly 5 times as powerful. Ubi did this wrong. Wii U now. I love Rayman Origins. I have no problem waiting. Not fair to Wii U owners at all.

I think it involves Microsofts policy about them being able to deny a game being made/released (forget the exact wording) if there is no simutaneous release.

This line explains it all.

"Titles for Xbox 360 must ship at least simultaneously with other video game platform, and must have at least feature and content parity on-disc with the other video game platform versions in all regions where the title is available," it reads.

"If these conditions are not met, Microsoft reserves the right to not allow the content to be released on Xbox 360."

thats pretty bogus too.. Im sure this gen wouldve had MUCH more content on PS3 had that policy not been in place.. "protecting inferior tech" is what sony said if im not mistaken.. I hope next gen, publishers say eff em if they try that crap.. & tho i prefer PS3 over wii u, i still wouldve liked to see this game release on time.. Thats the one game that made me want to buy the thing.. Now i have to wait forever to get something i want for it.. I might sell it to be honest.. @ least for a year or 2 & more good exclusives i want are released

Ha! Smart asses that's why they sell they think like a boss.

I know, it's absolutely ridiculous. A lot of people are assuming that Wii U owners are just unreasonably angry that the game is not going to be exclusive, but really people are just pissed that they're going to have to wait another half a year to get a game that was originally in the "launch window," because Ubisoft lied their asses off.

I mean, I own all three systems and I'M a little pissed off...

Why not give it a Digital release on the WiiU?

In that way, it will only be available to the fans and the Hardcore.

That will lessen their shipping cost and they won't have to advertise for it Twice.

When they release it for all Systems then they can ship it out in Box form for WiiU as well.

They could use the Digital sells to fund the TV advertising.

by the time the game launches on PS3 and 360, it would feel like an "old" game, which is understandable. i guess that justifies a simultaneous launch, even if it sucks for the wii U owners.

the stupid thing was announce the game as a wii U exclusive in the first place, especially when you know that Rayman Origins came on all platforms imaginable.

im glad its coming to my platform of choice anyway, cant wait for it. Origins was beast!

I have other games to finish. I think I will be fine waiting life could be worse.

anyone disapointed with rayman legends delay, or its cross platformitty, is really just showing their true colors as a fan-boy/girl

Luthiens11863d ago

Stupid comment ^^ the backlash is due too a finished game that is now delayed seven months to please m$.

Temporary1863d ago

If you JUST finished purchasing a system and one of the games you were looking most forward to was 2 weeks from release, then they pushed it back 7 months just so it could get a multiconsole release...youd be mad too.

It shows how much they hare about their fanbase.

admiralvic1863d ago

What does this have to do with being a fanboy / girl?

I am quite certain NO ONE is angry about the cross platform news, but they're angry about how they handled the game / situation. Even plenty of people that don't own / won't support Nintendo agree that they should have at least released the finished Wii U version first.

BullyMangler1863d ago

what is the rush?
we should have our own projects. not be angry over a push back.
