Ubisoft to release another Rayman Legends Wii U demo

Postby boxdude10 » 11 Feb 2013, 12:57

I'm sorry but a demo isn't good enough. The game is finished. We know that. Ubisoft didn't delay Assassin's Creed 3 so that it could be released on Wii U so why the hell are they waiting so long to release this?? It's unacceptable :x

Ubisoft to release another Rayman Legends Wii U demo

Postby franksello » 11 Feb 2013, 13:05

I doubt the people who have had this game preordered, or even those who bought the Wii U early for this title are going to be satisfied with another demo. The game is ready! The reason for the delay is purely financial, and has the potential to backfire badly on ubisoft. With the lack of new Wii U games out at the minute Rayman could have really made an impact, but releasing multi platform in September with games like GTA5 out and the countdown to Christmas and possible new consoles from Sony and Microsoft for people to wait for.... Could see Rayman sink into mediocrity, bad move Ubisoft, I think you ve lost a lot of fans.

I'm not a big Rayman fan, but even I'm disgusted. Delaying a completed product is not on.

Yep, another demo is just insulting. If Ubisoft really "listened to fans" they'd be able to tell that what Wii U owners want isn't to be drip-fed a few more levels of a game that they won't let you have. You just have to look on Miiverse...

I'd be interested to know what Nintendo think of this. They seemed to be really supportive of Ubisoft – making a Zombi U bundle for the Wii U and making Rayman Legends available on in-store demo units. Ubisoft's decision seems like a real smack in the face after all that.

If anyones interested , i found out that Microsoft has a clause where if a game is going to launch multi platform that, the game must be released at the same time or before its rivals on the xbox 360. Meaning that if Ubisoft launched the game on the WiiU, MS would have said no to the game coming to the 360. Total crud eh?

if i am correct the ps4 is coming out in november so releasing rayman legends 2 months before the new playstation comes out is pointless so they are most likely going to put it back another 2 months for the release of the ps4 wont they

Ubisoft to release another Rayman Legends demo for Wii U?

Image

Ubisoft can keep their demo's. If they had listened to the vox populi, they'd realise that they've made a stupid mistake and should instead release the full game ahead of the PS3/360 port. Keeping a game back when it's virtually finished just to release it on the other systems is a bit cheap, and that's irrespective of market penetration.

I've said it before, so I'll say it again, I may pick it up once it's in the bargain bin.

Yeah there isnt really anything they can do for wii u owners I dont think to make up for their decision. Its awful. Why they would delay it to make it available for all consoles when it was supposed to be a launch game for us anyway is appaling. I will be getting the game still because this doesnt change the fact it looks awesome, but I think they will lose alot of respect for this.

An exclusive demo doesn't make the situation any better, but at least Ubisoft tried to make it up to us.

people keep signing petitions because the men in suits want money so the more people who sign the petitions the more likely they are going to release it in march because they realise how many people actually want and how many people will buy this game

You do realise exponentially more people will buy this game now because its coming out on 360 and PS3, yeah? I'll tell you right now with confidence both of those versions will outsell the Wii-U one, petition or no petition.

At least we've got another demo, it's not the end of the world. I love Rayman as much as the next 3,000 Ubisoft fanboys, but at least the game's coming out. I'm so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so angry at Ubi, but my sanity's till intact. You seem to be able to wait for Animal Crossing New leaf, Luigi's mansion 2 and Aliens colonial marines, (It was announced 12 years ago. Still waiting.) but not this. Be happy you've got something rather than being the spoiled brats you are. Respect the developers, please. There's not point crying over spilt milk, as they say.

Allow me to pick you up on this. We respect the developers, but we do not take kindly to the executive decision to delay the game when it is, for all intents and purposes, finished and ready for release. Contrary to crying over spilt milk, if we believe what was said regarding the developers themselves stating that the Wii U version is complete, then you should aim this at Ubisoft's executive committee, not to the people who are both extremely annoyed and maligned at Ubisoft's baffling decision to delay a complete game until September.

I'm afraid another demo doesn't make up for this (at least in my opinion).

Edit:

That's because both the 360 and the PS3 have a greater total market share compared to the Wii U. Surely that's common knowledge. However, the main point isn't that the game is going multiplatform, it's solely that it's being delayed unnecessarily. If the game is finished, it makes more sense to release it now rather than wait until September and release it concurrently with the 360 and PS3 versions. The game itself was tailored for the Wii U to begin with. If the game is indeed ready for release, where's the reason for keeping it back until September? That's the only reason why people are petitioning.
