The lights are on
One-time Wii U exclusive Rayman Legends was delayed yesterday to reportedly make the game a multi-console release. Some fans didn’t like the decision, and Ubisoft announced via its Facebook page that Wii U owners will receive an exclusive demo.
No date is set for when the demo will hit, but many of the comments on the post are from upset gamers, with many of them unhappy with receiving a new demo.
Earlier today an anonymous developer wrote on a Spanish-language forum that the team was working overtime in order to make the February release before being told of the seven-month delay.
Game Informer editor Kyle Hilliard also expressed his disappointment with the delay, commenting that it will hurt the console’s health.
Giving a exclusive demo of an already finished game and then telling the fans to wait 7 months because f*** you that's why is like rubbing salt on a wound.
This is nothing but ***
Well, they tried.
Kind of like putting a band-aid on a decapitation.
Thats business folks. I fear for many of you if you ever get into certain industries.
It's presently the main reason I'd even want a Wii U. The gamepad features worked fantastically and the game itself seemed to really suit the Wii U. Now, something lilke LEGO City would make sense as a multi-platform... but not Rayman: Legends. I suspect they're just going to have an AI control the gamepad guy.
Oh wow, this game was one of the reasons for me getting the Wii U. Good work Ubisoft, now I have to wait for something else good to be on the console before I get one. Hurry up pikmin 3!
This delay will hurt Rayman's health as well, especially since Ubisoft is somehow dumb enough to want to release the full multi-platform game just in time for it to be crushed to death by Grand Theft Auto and all other incoming fall releases.
I'm happy. I love Rayman but am not ready to buy a Wii U quite yet
make it 10 dollars for the wii u...
To hell with that. Don't shove me down, piss on my face and tell me that it's rain. Do they really think this will get them back into people's good graces? What a joke.
Wow Ubisoft, that's a great trade-off, an exclusive demo!!!
*dripping sarcasm all over the page*
Nope, this doesn't help at all. We don't want another demo. We got one. THAT was supposed to be our exclusive demo.
The only way their going to fix this, is to give us our game as they promised. I really don't care if they want to do a multi-plat release. That's cool. You don't punish the gamers for your last minute decision, though. Not to mention, announcing extra platforms for an exclusive that isn't even out yet, isn't cool. The Wii U could have really used the boost, even if only for a couple months. It's similar to the guys behind Mirror of Fate announcing they want to do an HD version. That's awesome! You don't go and say that before the game is even out yet. Both your game and it's exclusive content just get slapped in the face when you do that.
This had better be the best longest,hardcore, content filled demo I've ever played or what's the point. Your done with the WiiU version so what's the point of holding on to it? Your just ruining this for Wiiu Owners.
