I don't get why they did not give the WiiU the game in February and then release it on the other consoles later on in the year.

I was looking forward to getting this game but I may now give it a miss as come October ill more than likely have another new console.

Becuase it would weaken the sales of the game if they had to split the marketing budget.

Not strictly true... They could've been selling it via the eShop since February with virtually no marketing needed. I agree retail needs an advertising kick but on eShop it would've been front-and-centre anyway.

That would still weaken sales across all platforms.
The Wii U for obvious reasons (no marketing)...
PS3 and 360 because we would have seen full reviews 6 months prior to the august release. The hype would have died down, late ports never get as much attention a brand new titles.

Optimum sales= simultaneous release+marketing push across all systems.

This game could have done wonders for the Wii U, I don't really like it. Now I'm conflicted as to which console to buy it on, the Wii U version will probably be better due to the Gamepad, but the Xbox 360 version will have Achievements, so now it's not even certain that I'll get it on Wii U.

wii u will have achievements just look at the multiplayer thats coming today FREE lots of achievements included in that! remember Nintendo have left it down to the developers to put achievements in their games and do not insist on it being included on all as it is with ps360

I would prefer a system wide system, I'm holding out hope that they implement one, that is what is keeping me from buying more third party games on the Wii U. I would have bought and replayed quite a few games like Mass Effect 3, Assassins Creed 3 and some others if Nintendo had some sort of system.

Often times I'll play through a game a few times, but prefer to get something for it each time, so I'll play through it on Xbox 360, then PS3 for Achievements and Trophies, if Nintendo had a system, I'd gladly do the same with the Wii U.

I did say I thought the Wii U version would be the better game overall, but it sucks that when I had it pre-ordered for Wii U, the developer kind of screwed people over.

PC tag? Did I miss something or it's a mistake?

well origins is on pc so I expect it to come out for pc too. Unless they pull a rockstar and release it 6 months after.

This doesn't affect me since I'm not a big fan but it really annoys me that those who are looking forward to playing Rayman Legends have to wait close to a year just because some twats in marketing decided it'd be more profitable as a multiplat.
