@LOL WUT

You could be right but had Rayman launched only on Wii U in February then it would have sold even more than it did on Wii U because there was a software drought and they wouldn't have had a PR nightmare on their hands. I imagine Ubisoft took a loss on the 360/PS3/PS Vita versions.

Rayman def would have benefited from releasing in feburary during the wiiu drought period. i guess ubisoft decided releasing so close to GTAV was a good idea.

shame because legends was a great game.

Splinter cell tanked on Wii u because it dosent even have offline coop and the online is non functionable, ubi still hasnt patched it. No spies vs mercs and the online coop levels aren't even playable because of the broken online. Its ubisofts fault. Ninty fans r not gonna pay full price for half a game.

Indeed. No one ever goes into the details when talking about why something on the Wii U don't do well.

They just blame the Wii U.

I wanted to buy it just for the spies verses merc but I just can't support a buggy game.

Also wiiu owners have another console already, that is part of being hardcore, its owning what you want because you love the games. It is a sad mistake to think wiiu owners are that much different than other console owners.

The game is awesome and I did buy it for Wii u day one, but if I knew the online experience was that messed up I would've passed on it. I wanted a online coop game to play with my friend but it dose t even connect

I think this would have sold far better had it released on Wii U in February as there was nothing out then and then if it was ported to the others later that would have been fine. Instead Ubisoft had to deal with the negativity of Wii U owners who had to wait 7 months for no reason. It's a great game and would have been very welcome months ago for sure! In any case I love it and can't stop playing!!

I do think in this case the blame is not to be pointed at anyone but Ubisoft. They did not need to delay it at all. More content could have been added to the Wii U version when the other versions released in September. Everyone would have been happier.
