There is seriously no good PR coming out of this. Do they really think this is going to be a good idea in either the short-term or the long-term?

Jobesy1323d ago

There is some good PR. The game is getting more attention now and I'm starting to feel bad for the devs. So much hard work put into getting a game finished only to have it delayed. I hope they don't find themselves out of work for speaking out though.

Ubisoft will never show the door to Ancel. He's the genuis behind Rayman and Beyond Good & Evil.

ShinMaster1323d ago

They should protest Microsoft's policy instead.

Ubi wont release the game on wiiu then release it again on other plateforms, they wont put efforts in marketing the same game two times only for butthurted peoples, its a buisness, not a fan cock stroking service.

@ mma

They released origins at 5 different times in the past year, so why is twice unheard of?

the shadowy money hungry people behind this decision should be shamed. if ubisoft cared about all this they would fulfil thier purpose of giving the game to Wii U owners. Disgraceful if ubisoft dont do this.

hano1323d ago

On the contrary...this is great PR.

Plus, there's no such thing as bad publicity.

Anyway, if the game is not released soon, I don't think many will buy it on the WiiU.

Baka-akaB1323d ago

It is a grea idea for them to display their discontent . It ensure some of the most annoyed people wont be boycotting the game and the wii u version , and thus punishing a dev team that wasnt at fault .

ElectricKaibutsu1322d ago

This is pretty crazy. People say Ubisoft made the right business decision, but good decisions don't receive backlash like this. Good decisions end with customers buying a product they want and the company making money. As of right now Ubisoft is zero for two.

Also I don't think good business decisions get petitions that are signed by (as of right now) nearly 10,000 people: https://www.change.org/peti...

The game being released on 360 and PS3 is a good thing, but regardless of what console you own or prefer, Wii U owners were promised that they'd have this (pretty much completed) game by the 26th of this month and what's happening is not fair to them or the developers who worked their asses of to have the game ready by this time, plain and simple.

jakmckratos1323d ago

Lol they were promised another demo this month..as if that tides people over for 7 months. Ubisoft made an awful decision. I don't have Wii U..I don't want one and I dont even think Id get Rayman Origins anyway but this SUCKS for fans and the Devs who've been working since before last E3 overtime who want to spend time with their children and families or otherwise get some deserved R&R.

Nevers0ft1323d ago

If Ubisoft sticks to their guns and releases the Wii U version alongside the 360 and PS3 versions, effectively letting the title gather dust on a shelf for seven months then I won't be buying the game on principal irrespective of how good it is.

LOOK_AT_THIS_I1323d ago

Agreed. It sucks that these guys are actually sticking their asses out there in support of us who were anticipating the game. The publisher is making a big mistake and unfortunately these same guys who are somewhat fighting for us are going to be the ones who suffer. I'll say again ill pick this up used from gamefly or will ebay it. Shame cause this is one of the few titles I was looking forward to this spring.

Munnkyman1323d ago

It really sux for them. To put so much time into creating something and just taking it alway t
Hurts
