Of course we all know by now about the controversial decision by Ubisoft to delay the finished Wii U version of Rayman Legends so it can appear in September next to PS3/360 versions that were announced. This spurred on fan outrage, which led to petitions, thousands of angry posts on Ubisoft's Facebook page, and more.
It appears that Rayman creator Michel Ancel is not happy with the delay either. Images sent to Eurogamer show Ancel and team posing with a sign that says ""Sortez nous Rayman. Soutient a Ubi Montpellier.", which Eurogamer translates to "Release Rayman. Support Ubisoft Montpelier."
The support for an immediate release of the game by the creator of Rayman itself, a high profile Ubisoft developer, will surely not go unnoticed. How will Ubisoft respond?
ZombiU actually sold decent. I know VGChartz isn't the most accurate source, but according to it, it's the third best selling game on the system behind Nintendo Land and New Super Mario Bros. U with 150,000 units moved (330,000 worldwide). Assassin's Creed III is ninth overall with 70,000 units moved (120,000 worldwide). Given the install base, those aren't bad numbers at all.
I'm thinking you're right, but I was hoping something would have come from this. If this is Microsoft's fault, so help me my next home computer purchase will be an iMac (which it probably will be anyway to appease the wife).
Yeah, it's very generic, so who knows. But that's what the GameStop leaks usually look like, I thought. That or a picture of a very generic looking computer screen with game names and highly questionable release dates.
It'd help. Rainbow Six could be awesome the the gamepad, but I haven't really seen much on Patriot since it was first shown and the way that series has been going I don't have high hopes. Watch Dogs could be cool.
With Ubisoft's stance on exclusives no longer happening and, apparently, caring about what fans want it would show that it wasn't just some poorly thought out move for Rayman but part of something bigger.
@VickiL I know, but I guess my point is that tons of people know exactly what these things look like now, so it's easy enough to fake. And a photoshop can usually be spotted, but in this case it wouldn't even have to be photoshop. Someone could just make up that piece of paper and take a picture of it.
We'll see what happens. Certainly it would be a good thing to get these two games on Wii U. Watch Dogs especially has a lot of hype behind it, Wii U could use something like that.
