one more thing RAYMAN LEGENDS IS SSOOO DEAD!!!, I don't care if it comes out for other platforms fine, but the wii u version should have come out in feb. early march like it was supposed to on wii u, it would have sold well and could have been an early system seller, but no, activision, made the stupid decision to release them all in the fal, fine for ps3, and xbox 360, but for wii u? MARIO 3D, SONIC LOST WORLD, AND DONKEY KONG COUNTRY TROPICAL FREEZE, WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD PICK a cult game over these top notch AAA TITLES? yes, I would have chosen rayman over NSMB U, OH YEAH, BUT NOT OVER THESE 3 TITLES!!! rayman can not even touch these!! so too bad ray man, you won't sell that much on sony or microsoft, your games never have, they have always sold the most on nintendo.

now instead of having the plaform field all to your self, like you did in feb. now you are going up against the big boys, the heavy hitters for nintendo, let's see if I am a nintendo fan what am I going to spend $60 bucks on? mario? DK from retro? sonic? these 3 titles are great! I played ray man demo, mario and dk demo at best buy, and mario and dk blow away the ray man demo!!! so sorry rayman, you lose!! too bad, it's your own fault!!

Actually it was Ubisoft not activision.

"they have always sold the most on nintendo."

rayman origins sold best on ps3 and 360.
it even did pretty well on the vita considering it launched months later

they should have released the wii U version earlier though...that much i agree with...but the delay added 30 levels that you dont have to pay for as dlc
