SmartGlass not 'popular' or 'responsive' enough for Rayman Legends

However, with the move to multi-platform development, wouldn't it be possible to recreate the same multi-screen gameplay on Xbox 360 with SmartGlass? Series creator Michel Ancel told us no. "It's not as responsive as we need to," Ancel explained, adding: "it's not very popular today." (Michel Ancel, Wii U, Xbox 360)

What happened to the 17 million downloads MS was saying SmartGlass has?

I downloaded it. But it said I needed to do something else so I was like forget it.

Than never tried it again

Give the wii u some time, no doubt Mario Kart will show the importance of Nintendo betting heavy on 2nd screen functionality.

Only game I see this second screen gameplay being a little successful is with bf4 commander.

But really, it's a bust....at what point can we say WiiU is a failure? Do we just keep saying "wait until game x - you'll see!"

Fallout would be interesting w the small screen being the pipboy.

Off screen play is an amazing feature no matter how many people are discounting it.

Rayman and Nintendoland have used the second screen the best so far. And as far as repeating the wait for games line. I think we need to wait until holiday 2014 before declaring it a failure. They have a lot of first party coming out soon.

The responsiveness is why they have WiFi Direct in the Xbox One for this very purpose.

smartglass has infinite devices it has to work on. The Wii-u has one device (screen).

Not popular enough? Neither is the Wii-u it seems..... bada bing!!! jokes people, jokes.

im kinda disappointed about this. i was really hoping MS would have tablet experience for rayman. it would have been easier for my gf to play with me...she has failed so many times with rayman origins
