Wow, this really kinda puts things into perspective huh? Shows the kind of crap devs have to go through due to crappy business decisions by a bunch of guys in suits and ties.

animegamingnerd2448d ago

those guy's in suits are ruining this industry

Gamer19822448d ago

Games i suits are ruining the industry by bringing great games to more gamers? Yeah great logic there mate..

animegamingnerd2448d ago

@gamer1982 then who makes decisions like this as well as on disc DLC fund cheap cash in's like money tie in's and rush games to make a deadline

Doesn't this happen to all titles that go multiplat after bring exclusive like FF13.

On Ubisofts part, it was shitty to make this move, but this could possibly be due to not enough WiiU's being out there on the market to possibly cover costs of production by getting enough sales.

A slight delay to get more people playing the game is not as shitty a decision as firing people for the game not selling well. It's a tough decision, but someone has to make it.

It's not often you see devs speak out against the publishers themselves, particularly when they're still working with them.

A lot of times it seems that people on forums never separate the two. Developers though generally try as much as they can to make the best game possible. It's a shame the game is getting some hate now because of this decision.

This was all about money.

Ubisoft doesn't like WiiU sales, and fans were clamoring for Rayman for current consoles. This is one of the reasons why games are beginning to suck: They treat developers like SH*T!

3 million sold at the end of december is bad ??? i dont think so.

Gamer19822448d ago

It was though for a new a console in this modern age where gaming is now a form of media to rival any other form of media. Nearly every household has a console. As for this all about money, yeah money was initially behind it but the gamers are the ones who win so who cares other than the WiiU fanboys crying out as this was there only decent game until the second half of 2013?

MasterCornholio2448d ago

But a combined install base of over 140 million consoles is even better which is why Ubisoft is releasing it on both the PS3 and the 360. As for the delay the XBOX is at fault here due to Microsofts policys on the release dates.

Nintendo needs to quit having Ubisoft on their system launches. 3DS ,and now WIIU.

Aceman182448d ago

sometimes we as gamers have the right to be upset with developers when they are acting arrogant and whatnot, but in this case i knew i couldn't be upset with the development team because this decision could only be made by the higher ups.

my glad that more people can play this game, but it really sucks how the execs are holding back an already finished game from those who want to play it now.

That blurb puts all worldwide English teachers on suicide watch.

The source material isn't in English, this was a rough translation.
