Ubisoft Screws Everybody Over 2013-02-09 22:35:29 Reply

Ubisoft has recently screwed over it's fans, Nintendo, the developers that make their games, and even itself in one cunning move by delaying Rayman Legends until September and porting it to the Xbox360 and PS3. Even though the Wii U version is already done, it won't be released until then because Microsoft apparently has a Whiny Little Bitch policy that states that they have the right to refuse any game onto their platform if it has already appeared on another. If you are a Wii U owner or just a kind soul you should sign this to return the Wii U version to its original release date. You can also watch people attack Ubisoft on its facebook page.

I can see where they're coming from when you look at it from a business perspective but if I was a big Rayman fan, I would be pretty annoyed too.

No, it's pretty bad business move too. They've decided to exchange capitalizing on the drought of games for the Wii U right now and are now pushing for September to compete with GTA V, Pokemon X and Y, Wind Waker HD, Mario Kart etc. Before everybody with a Wii U was gonna get the game, now it'll be in the back of everybody's minds.

I can see where you're coming from but they'd likely make a bigger profit on three consoles than two ultimately. Another factor is that this is drawing more attention to the game than had they just released it silently. Time will tell how it pans out.

Platformers aren't that big of a market on the PS3 and the Xbox360 compared to the market for them on the Wii U so I don't see how they'd make that much more. Also all of this attention is extremely negative, people keep speaking of boycotting, pirating, and buying Ubisoft's games second hand so they don't get money because of this.

Ubisoft won't fix Assassins creed 3 multiplayer on the Wii U. This move comes as no surprise seeing how they stopped supporting Wii U very quickly.

I read all those whining comments in Ubisoft's Facebook. Every post features at least three people crying about Rayman. Get over it is my opinion. No need for such an attack.

It's not just the game, it's the fact that they completely disregarded us and now they are ignoring us.

And that's exactly what they should keep doing if you keep acting like kids. I agree with the petition thing but spamming won't really help. You only create a bad image for a company that doesn't deserve it(at least not at that extent.I felt the need to add this in case someone wants to start complaining about Splinter Cell etc). I also agree with all this anger and think it's normal, but I wouldn't approve actions like that. If you want to be taken seriously,be serious.

Yeah, but it's not like it's delayed because it needs polishing. It's already done.

I don't even own a WiiU so it doesn't bother me too much. Nevertheless I signed it.

Now can somebody tell me why it takes over half a year to port a game over to another console?

I dont own a wii U and I loved rayman origins. I was disappointed when I found out it was wii U exclusive and the only reason for that was because it wanted to work with a gimmick. Now that the game is being released on PS3 I can finally play it. So im happy, I can wait if in the end it means I can play it. You can bitch all you want.

Well, it's not really a gimmick, the game is based around it and it's very fun. The only reason I was mad about the loss of exclusivity was because I think the Wii U is a very good console and I want other people to get it so it can succeed. I'm not mad about that anymore, and I'm happy more people get to play it but the Wii U version is done, and I'm mad that they're still delaying it.

All this whining about Rayman is highly amusing. They didn't "fuck their fans over" they simply delayed a game as they didn't want to be with Nintendo anymore. Then suddenly the fans all begin whining and taking it as some direct assault. Oh how sweetly amusing. It is almost as if no Rayman fans have ever had a game delayed before.
