Rayman Legends – No Longer A Wii U Exclusive,... And Some Thoughts On The Matter

The Game Fanatics' Jake Valentine gives his take on the recent delay of the Wii U version of Ubisoft's Rayman Legends. (Industry, Next-Gen, PS3, Rayman Legends, Ubisoft, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I think the dumbest move from Ubisoft was to annouce the game as a Wii U exclusive in the first place. I mean, everybody enjoyed Origins which was multiplat but the game wasn't a commercial success at all. Anyway, I'm glad PS3/360 owners will be able to play Legends, which looks amazing.

Basically this. It's great 360/PS3 owners can play it.

It's dumb that a fished game is shelved for several months.

Seems like they used the fact that the Wii U was coming out to project their game as a cool game and exclusive and then at the last minute hold off for the other consoles.
In business you want everyone to be able to buy your product.
They saw the user base for the wii U was not to their liking.
"Um we are not going to make any money on this system! lets release it multiplatform!"
I am not going to hate them for this decision.

Sadly around the time this game comes out I will not have the time to even look at it because there will be too many other things to play.

Aside from the delay, I couldn't really care less. I am still getting this for my Wii U, and now at least the PS3 and 360 owners will get to play this game as well. A game of this caliber deserves a larger audience than the Wii U will have, so I am happy that more gamers get to play the game.

It will be interesting, however, to see what happens to the PS3 and 360 versions since the Wii U version is the lead platform this time around with the game being ported over to the other systems. I wonder what differences we will see between the versions in terms of graphics and framerates...

I mean that is what people were saying all through the gloating gamers were doing that there is no way Ubisoft would miss out on the money they would get from 360 and PS3 versions.Rayman Origins was already a weak selling game.Did people really think they would risk it on a new system alone when it barely sold on 4 or 5 ones? I mean I liked Rayman Origins and plan to buy this one too but I am not sure what is the big shock that they decided to put it on other systems besides the Wii U. I am sure the people doing Bayonetta 2 would have preferred to put it on other systems too if it wasn't tied to Nintendo. They are missing out on money from the 360, PS3 and PC versions where the fans are.

Capcom did the same thing with devil may cry wen sony showed off the ps3 trailers before the ps3 launch just to find out later it was going to the 360. This is when i knew that 3rd party exclusives were basically not a given in this next generation of gaming & other games have followed suit with, bioshock, ninja gaiden, tekken, virtual fighter, mass effect & so on & so on & is when sony/nintendo/ms had to showcase with new exclusive ip's to seperate themselves from the pack & why u need to own their system.
