I read this 1 or 2 days ago, and was shocked, disappointed and mad at the same time. My second most anticipated Wii U game, and after Mario Bros U's release my most anticipated Wii U game, has been delayed and removed to September. And it really is just because they suddenly decided to release the game on Xbox360 and PS3 as well. The big joke is that, a far as I know, they could already give Wii U owners Rayman Legends on it's previously planned release date, but instead wait until September so they can launch all 3 versions at the same time. I've lost a bit of respect for Ubisoft because of that decision, but worse, I've lost my anticipation for Rayman Legends almost totally. No doubt it will be a great platformer, and one that will show off the graphical possibilities of the Wii U as well as the Wii U gamepad's features, but having to wait so much more longer now really makes me quite upset, and until than, I'll be focusing way more on Nintendo's first party titles anyways, that they will show off during E3 and hopefully release still this year.
What a luck that I have started finding joy with Wii hacks, mainly New Super Mario Bros Wii hacks, so it's not like I will start to be bored because I don't have any new games to play until Dark Moon.
It's a bit of a kick in the teeth for all those WiiU owners but at least you will get it eventually.
Its a crappy situation all around, ubisoft thinks they are being smart with this decision but its going to hurt far more than its going to help. I think part of it is that they didnt want to create marketing for the game twice, so in essence this is all about the money in every concevable way. Sad that they are doing this to the fans, but even more sad that the devs hardwork will probably take a huge hit due to all the bad PR they now have as well as the mountain of games coming out around that time anyway.
A lot of people were pissed about the delay and the porting to other consoles. Myself included, unfortunately. Ubisoft chickened out of its confidence in the Wii U, and the system itself has already taken a lot of hits. They didn't need this.
Yeah your feelings basically are the same as nearly everyone. I don't have a problem being multiplatform but if the WiiU version is ready, why sideline it just for a simultanious release? Especially now that the game will have to go up against GTAV. Way to go Ubisoft. Rayman Legends for the WiiU could've been a great seller for March but you had to go and pull this crap.
