Rayman Legends sold more copies on Wii U than on any other format last week.
probably is still selling enough on PS3/XBOX360 to justify going multiplat...
Yeah both the 360 and PS3 versions are only a few spots behind.
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
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.
@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.
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.
Well it's good they went multiplatform. 14, 18, and 20 should add up to a decent amount of sales.
@ shadowsteal I love how you call is "Same IP" instead of "Old IP" in your list lol
@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.
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.
@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
This isn't surprising as the Wii U had the better version ;)
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...
Grab those straws where you can. lol
(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.
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.)
Or its selling better on Wii U because Nintendo gamers like Platformers more. DERP Damage control
it doesn't have the texture pack because its in it as standard.
@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.
It's funny cause the Wii U version has a better FPS, and almost no screen tearing.
@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.
@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.
@ 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.
@ 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.
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.
There's already a report out there that Ubi is looking to patch that.
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...
@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
I'm waiting for the vita edition
Wii u>>ps3 360 ps4 xb1 pc psvita 3d best gaming platform THIS IS PROOF
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.
sarcasm ,is it may seem is a little too hard to convey over the internet...
oh sorry about that pal. Guess I didn't catch it at first. My bad
Lol, the next gen consoles aren't even out yet and it already beats the Wii U in nearly all areas.
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...
FF14 arr too
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.
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... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
All those games are wack accept splinter cell. Wat are you tryna prove?
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"
What about the VITA ?
THATS BECAUSE THERES BUGGER ALL ELSE TO PLAY ON WIIU!
The Wii U is doing just fine. Don't listen to all the analysts or whatever
WOW that could be the truth.
good news for the wiiU now ninti bring me my project X!
This game should have been released for the wii u months ago.
Eh, just don't blame Nintendo. It was Ubisoft's decision. And a bad one at that.
No argument there.
im personally waiting on the Vita version since it looks like a perfect fit for a handheld pick up and play game :)
Well, it depends if you want to go for the world record. I can not see myself beating some of those records on the bus or train on the way to work. This is just for the demo version, too, with levels that are only available for 1 day or 1 week. To think that people were able to get such good scores in a single day is just incredible. Imagine what they could do with the endless amount of time they get with the full release.
well i tend play my vita round my house more than i do around town so that wouldnt be an issue. also i couldnt give a shit about world records lol. i only care about having a laugh with it :)
Don't forget that the Vita version has 30 less levels. I was all set to buy it till I learned this. Now I am waiting for bargain bin.
.....wait what?!?! has that been officially stated? im not saying youre a liar or anything but it just doesnt make sense in my mind to why they would hold back on 30 levels for what seems no apparent reason. a link would be great mate :)
http://www.gamesreviews.com... http://www.youtube.com/watc... - 1:31 There are reports of there being "over" 120 stages -> http://www.vg247.com/2013/0... So it seems some combination of levels / content is not present. Probably beyond the invasion stages mentioned, since they have 3 lums each and 85 are missing, which leaves a remainder. Though going off the video it seems to be AT THE VERY LEAST 30.
well that is disappointing :( well thankyou for the information. I will use it when considering what platform greatly
Well it was meant for WiiU in the first place so its understandable.
getting the vita version.
Don't forget that the Vita version has 30 less levels. I was all set to buy it till I learned this. Now I am waiting for bargain bin...
The Gamepad is what instigate me to buy the Wii U and i am enjoying it quite well. PS4, mine by july 2014. X dogBone .... NEVER As for Rayman, No doubt !!! Fil Anne ? SHUT Up!!!
why are you even mentioning ps4 and xbox one? this game isnt on either.
I bought Origins on Steam and I'll buy this on Steam eventually
Would've sold far more if it was released earlier on the Wii U.
Definitely. This is why rayman origins sold bad... they released it in the competitive fall season. If you have 60 bucks to spend would you buy gta or rayman legends? "Well all my friends are getting gta, i want to play with them!"
Been saying this forever. The game has far too much competition across all platforms right now. Who knows what the numbers are right now, all I can tell you is the Wii U version at least would have sold much better had it released back in February.
It's good that it is selling on any console. Rayman Origins and Rayman Legends are some of the best platforming you can play. It deserves the support. Hope it keeps selling and selling.
Why is this even news and presented like somekind of victory for Wii U? The fact was it was exclusive for Wii U and had like 6 months extra worth of preorders before it went multiplatform, so of course first week sales should be more on Wii U. Wii U is for Nintendo games not multiplatform games.
Oh please man, shut your trap. funny how you completely ignore the wiiu's tiny install base compared to the ps360. oh um der wiiu had six months more of preorders dur :B yea and the HD twins had 6 years to grow an install base funny how you will find nothing but excuses for the other consoles but not for wiiu when it comes to selling watered down ports answer is simple, wiiu /nintendo gamers like platformers more
Shut my trap then you ask a question, confusion much. All I really know is the Wii U version exclusivity was a big deal and it was up for preorder for a time before it was announced as multiplatform, probably because third party sales are sucking on Wii U and its losing third party support by the day. LAst thing I know on this subject matter is my daughters birthday is on 9/15 and she has been asking for this game, she loved Origins. So next week I will be picking it up for her on the 360.
