TimeSkipLuffy1061d ago

probably is still selling enough on PS3/XBOX360 to justify going multiplat...

IanVanCheese1061d ago

Yeah both the 360 and PS3 versions are only a few spots behind.

Theyellowflash301061d ago (Edited 1061d ago )

A few is three, Rayman debuted at 14 on Wii U, 18 on Xbox 360 and 20th on PS3.

Maybe the Xbox 360 version is just a touch over a "few" spots behind, the PS3 version is well behind the Wii U version

PeaSFor1061d ago (Edited 1061d ago )

thing is, some peoples will simply keep their money for GTAV on ps3/360 and money for next-gen consoles, while wiiu only owner have pretty much only Rayman.

Theyellowflash301061d ago

@PeaSFor

Wii U owners only have Rayman Legends?

- Pikmin 3
- The Wonderful 101
- Splinter Cell
- Sonic Lost World
- The Legend of Zelda The Wind Waker HD
- Wii Party U
- Mario and Sonic Sochi
- Super Mario 3D World
- Donkey Kong Country
- Watch Dogs
- AC4
- Batman Arkham City
- Wii Fit U
- Disney Infinity

Nintendo fans plenty to spend their money on this for Wii U. Stop damage controlling.

Shadowsteal1061d ago (Edited 1061d ago )

Let's fix that list The yellow flash

- Pikmin 3 old IP
- The Wonderful 101 new IP
- Sonic Lost World on 3ds
- The Legend of Zelda The Wind Waker HD old IP
- Wii Party U old IP
- Mario and Sonic Sochi old IP
- Super Mario 3D World old IP
- Donkey Kong Country old IP
- Wii Fit U old IP

That took 2 years to produce

When in 4 months the PS4 or Xbox One will have a similar line-up in 4 months (Launch Window)

Killzone:Shadowfall old IP but new trilogy
Battlefield 4(listing because Wii U won't have it)
Knack New IP
DriveClub New IP
Infamous:Second Son Same IP but brand new story
The Order: 1886 New IP
ResoGun New IP

and if you want you can add
Warframe
Planetside 2
Blacklight: Retribution
Warthunder

All that within 4 months not 2 years.

ABizzel11061d ago

Well it's good they went multiplatform.

14, 18, and 20 should add up to a decent amount of sales.

MNGamer-N1060d ago

@ shadowsteal

I love how you call is "Same IP" instead of "Old IP" in your list lol

Reeze1060d ago

@Shadowsteal

Even though most of them are old IPs, people still want to buy them. That's like saying, "Call of Duty is an old IP, so I'm not going to buy it."

Your argument makes no sense. People will buy a game if they want it, not if it's new.

@Shadowsteal

Pikmin has 3 games.
yet Killzone and Infamous have more.

ChickenOfTheCaveMan1060d ago

When you list Mario and Sonic Sochi as system selling title, you're in trouble.

Of course WiiU doesn't just have Rayman, but it doesn't have much whereas X360 and PS3 have a truckload of new releases every now and then, and Rayman is one of them.

Kalebninja1060d ago

@shadowsteal ur justifying infamous and killzone being old ip's because oh they have new stories... every game has a new story and battlefield is also on xbone while all the wii u titles u listed are exclusive so there should only be 4 games on your list if thats ur argument and i know a lot of ppl say knack is gnna suck so that leaves 3 games worth mentioning

LOL_WUT1060d ago

This isn't surprising as the Wii U had the better version ;)

falcon971060d ago (Edited 1060d ago )

The point is there is way less than 1 million wiiu consoles in the uk and wiiu games like this and saga's all star racing plus a few more sell better on wiiu than the sub HD twins that's the big story here,attach rate is the best a console has ever seen PERIOD,Sega's all star racing on wiiu outsold both 360 and ps3 combined....look it up its a trend...

pixelsword1060d ago

Grab those straws where you can.

lol

bullymangLer1060d ago

(Shadow steal)

lol all of the Nintendo games you listed = OLD ip's with NEW GAME-PLAY < game CHANGING gameplay.

and all your NEW sony ip's = SAME game-play

sucks huh

It's only selling better on Wii U because it's the most complete of all versions and Wii U gamers have nothing else to play. Especially after hearing that Splinter Cell: Blacklist Wii U is missing a texture pack.

Summons751061d ago

Splinter Cell is fine on WiiU, looks just as good as my brother's xbox version. Also Pikmin 3, AC3, Mario, ZombiU, Darksiders 2, Scribblenaughts, Earthbound, Ducktales, blops 2, Wario Game n Ware, Nintendo Land plus other lesser things is nothing to play? Sorry for you loss sir. Have fun buying a Ps4 in a couple years when the library has built up because no one can ever have 100+ games at launch ever.....(fun fact: ps4 has less launch games than wiiu and most are digital idies)

(Note: got a ps4 fully paid off and excited for it...the no games argument is an absolutely stupid argument which people are going to use for the xbone and ps4 for the first year when most games are going to be multi-gen games.)

Theyellowflash301061d ago

Or its selling better on Wii U because Nintendo gamers like Platformers more. DERP Damage control

wheresmymonkey1061d ago

it doesn't have the texture pack because its in it as standard.

mcstorm1061d ago

@Shadowsteal I have to disagree the WiiU has a very good list of games to play. A lot of them are on the 360 and PS3 to but none of them are console sellers and this is why the 3rd party developers like EA have made a fuss about low sales of there games on the WiiU.

The one thing that was lacking on the WiiU is 1st party or excusive games but with Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101 already out and we have DK, Mario 3D, Zelda HD, Mario Kart and Super Smash bros out before the 1st quarter of next year as well as a lot of the big 3rd party games like the new cod and batman the Wiiu sales will pickup come the end of this year beginning of next.

SnotyTheRocket1061d ago

It's funny cause the Wii U version has a better FPS, and almost no screen tearing.

Shadowsteal1061d ago (Edited 1061d ago )

@Summons75

I have a Wii U. I'll post a picture if you don't believe me.

1. Splinter Cell is not* fine on Wii U, there are notable texture issues because a texture pack couldn't be installed on the Wii U.
2. Pikmin 3 looks fun, I heard it's short I'll pick it up when cheaper.
3. Super Mario Bros. U was terrible it's more of the same and I can play Super Mario Bros. 2 on my 3ds much more fun. $60 for a Mario rehash? please.
4.Earthbound really in this day and age? Ducktales is not exclusive. Scribblenauts is also on 3ds.
5. Darksiders 2, AC3, and Black Ops 2 were on 360 and PS3 before the Wii U version.
6. Wario and Game is terrible, the ds version is better.

I didn't lose anything actually I played most of these titles already, or counterparts of these titles. Am i truly missing out if I don't play Super Mario Bros. U? My 3ds has much more notable titles and exclusive titles than the Wii U.

PS4 Launch Here's where you can suck an egg. PS4 launch is full of titles that weren't available anywhere else. The reason why Wii U had a bigger launch was because several titles were ports.

Killzone: Shadowfall
Knack
DriveClub
AC4
Watchdogs
BF4
COD:Ghosts
to name a few.

and we're getting Infamous: Second Son and The Order:1886 in the launch window meanign within 3-4 months.

Unlike Wii U owners who had to wait nearly a year to get their hands on Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101, and the no longer exclusive Rayman: Legends.

Face it, you're the most delusional fanboy ever. The PS3 and Xbox360 have more value than the Wii U. And Wii U not getting Gta5 is losing out, not me losing out on Mario's 100th sequel.

Shadowsteal1061d ago (Edited 1061d ago )

@Mcstorm

The Wii U has an AMAZING line-up if the Xbox360 and PS3 didn't exist. But since I've played all those titles on PS3 already like ME3, AC3, Darksiders 2 etc. the Wii U has an extremely PALTRY line-up.

The only thing that has me interested for my Wii U is Pikmin 3 and Wonderful 101. I hold no value for Super Mario. Bros U, I'll get it when it's dirt cheap just to collect it.

But on PS4 within 4 months I'll get my hands on
Killzone: Shadowfall
Knack
DriveClub
Infamous:Second Son
The Order:1886
Resogun
and more

That's going to take 4 months to happen

It took the Wii U nearly a whole year just to get Pikmin 3 and Wonderful 101, and that Zelda REMAKE.

Realplaya1061d ago

@ Shadow your way off base here the other versions are only missing the Murphy interaction although they can press b. Splinter Cell could have sold more but once the news came out that the Wii U was once again getting the shaft on an update and then there are parts missing. It's something that doesn't sir well with gamers.

admiralvic1060d ago

@ Shadow

It's cool that you hate the Wii U and all, but don't expect like there is some sort of grand logic to why it's selling the best. It's selling the best because Wii U gamers have had that demo for months, played the challenge app for months, was designed with the Wii U in mind, to prove Ubisoft should have released it way back when for them and platformers tend to do well on Nintendo consoles (go figure).

Also I have no clue why you're listing the PS4 games like they have some sort of deep meaning.

Killzone: Shadowfall - exclusive
Knack - exclusive
DriveClub - exclusive
AC4 - multi
Watchdogs - multi
BF4 - multi
COD:Ghosts - multi
to name a few.

You're really comparing 3 exclusives at launch (Wii U launched with Super Mario Bros. U, Zombi U and NintendoLand, which featured the same old, new, new line up) as if they're guaranteed to be awesome. I am going to level with you and say I dislike racing games, so I know nothing about DriveClub besides it's a Plus game. Knack looks fun, but impressions seem to be mixed and doesn't strike me as a strong system seller. Most people seem uninterested in the title, which will probably result in it being a Plus game. Killzone will most likely be solid, but that's about it. In either case, there are a lot of people posting how much they dislike the launch line up, since most of the "big hitters" could be had on last gen consoles.

_QQ_1060d ago

yes because Wiiu owners who have the money to purchase the system at launch totally have no PC,or other consoles,they totally have nothing else to play.

reploidmega1060d ago

There's already a report out there that Ubi is looking to patch that.

falcon971060d ago (Edited 1060d ago )

Look ive seen numerous video comparisons of pc/wiiu and wiiu is almost identical,wiiu has less detailed textures but better lighting and water that's the story,and the wiiu version could of looked alot better if it wasnt a port...

Compare COD Ghosts Wiiu/ps4/xbox1 versions when their out the door,i honestly think Treyarch's wiiu version will out do xbox1 and ps4 due to treyarch working soley on wiiu version...

LonDonE1060d ago (Edited 1060d ago )

@wheresmymonkey
EXACTLY!! agreed

@Shadowsteal
why these fan boys keep spreading lies is beyond me! the texture pack is already included in the wii u disk, it runs of the disk by default, the wii u has limited storage and so does not allow installs of data!

The PS3 and 360 on the other hand can have the texture pack installed! maybe this is why the wii u version on average takes longer to load!

Go to lens of truth and you will see that the wii u textures of splinter cell black list actually look better then the competition!
no way it doesn't include the texture pack!!
if it didn't they textures would look substantially worse but they dont in fact they look better look at the picture comparisons!

The wii u version is also the only native hd version, which means its the only native 720p rendered console version of the game, the ps3 and 360 versions render at a sub hd resolution, and so obviously since the wii u versions 720p native and then up-scales to 1080p obviously it is using the hd texture pack!

Use your common sense, it is also the only console version which runs fully vsync, the wii u version does not tear one bit, while the 360 and ps3 versions have a 20% tear rate of frames!
the frame rate is mostly 30fps and dips occasionally just like the 360 version! on average the frame rate is near enough 30fps just like the 360 and ps3 version!

A ll this info is min the lens of truth analysis! digital foundry where talking shit, they are clearly biased, the wii u version of splinter cell is the definitive console version, lens of truth gave the wii u version the nod, digital foundry clearly were talking shit! Throw in awesome game pad implementation and off screen play and the wii u easily wins the splinter cell face off!
too much microsoft add revenue! LMAO

how is that proof that wii u is a more superior console than ps4 and xb1, consoles that's yet to be released? I seriously want to know how you consider that to be proof.

Not hating on wii u or anything, but that statement is so far beyond stupid.

vishmarx1061d ago

sarcasm ,is it may seem is a little too hard to convey over the internet...

wanieldiik1061d ago

oh sorry about that pal. Guess I didn't catch it at first. My bad

Plagasx1061d ago

Lol, the next gen consoles aren't even out yet and it already beats the Wii U in nearly all areas.

Zichu1061d ago (Edited 1061d ago )

Maybe because people who own a 360 and PS3 had within two weeks:

Lost Planet 3
Killer Is Dead
Saints Row IV
Splinter Cell Blacklist

I know VGChartz isn't 100% accurate, but Rayman Legends wasn't even in the top 50 of the preorders on neither platform. Saints Row was on top, then SC: Blacklist...

EDIT: Sorry, missed out FFXIV... How could I miss that. It shows the games that are being released on that week on VGChartz, which is surrounded by a big yellow box...

admiralvic1060d ago

Please. Pokemon Rumble U had about as much impact on people buying Rayman Legends as Lost Planet 3 (maybe Killer is Dead too. Those games don't tend to sell well). Also the upcoming PS4 / BF 4 / GTA V / etc are probably what is to blame. Most people only have a budget of so much and rather not squander cash on titles they don't care about or expect to drop.

falcon971060d ago (Edited 1060d ago )

What this proves is WiiU might be selling slow but the gamers that have bought it are obviously not shy to buy games,and could be to do with MiiVerse and its amazing advertising...don't forget i've bought 3 games because of MiiVerse and peoples comments and they held true each time so MiiVerse is the best place for true game opinions...

Oh i'm yet to buy Pikimin3 or Rayman but will buy both next week...

When Nintendo show X off next time i bet the whole gaming public will go mad i have the feeling that game will look incredible,something tells me Moonlith want to show off with that game,4 players co-op in those graphics look at 1min 22 mark wow is all i will say and its the only game that looks Nextgen in every dimension in my eyes...

hatzwontfit1060d ago

All those games are wack accept splinter cell. Wat are you tryna prove?

monkey6021061d ago

I cant wait to get rayman on my ps3 but look at the recent line up of games on the 360 and ps3 and then factor in that people are waiting for the gta5 launch in a fortnight and join me in responding to the title with "well no duh"
