Forums - Nintendo Discussion - If Lego City sells well...

Do you think Ubisoft may rue their decision to put back the release date of Rayman?? With not much out on Wii U at present, Lego City has become one of the consoles most desirable titles, and with a lack of competition i have a feeling it may pull out some decent numbers. Ubisoft had a chance to also take advantage of this situation but decided to hold out for several months and realease with the multiplats. Could this backfire on them after the backlash they received or will the bigger Wii U install base see them right when it is eventually released?

I think they'll rue that decision anyway, or at least the decision to release Rayman Legends at a time when it is going to be buried beyond belief.

Their decision is poor anyway. Launching alongside GTA and Zelda? Mistake.

This more than anything else.

Rayman Origins didn't sell much on Wii which has a massive installed base (didn't do big numbers on any system) for no reason to think it'd have done great on WiiU.   It did have a chance to gain a following on WiiU but I can't fault Ubisoft.  Without question they'll sell more going multi-plat.   WiiU's soft sales just made that an easy decision.

Irony is this was the one game that was playable on WiiU's in stores to showcase the gamepad.



 

Depends on what selling well means. In the Wii U's current climate, I'd consider selling well to be 120,000 units in the first month. I think it would have to do better than well to impress Ubisoft.

I believe in honesty, civility, generosity, practicality, and impartiality.

Going multiplatform was indeed a wise decision but to delay the WiiU version was a big mistake. They would have been alone with tons of people desperate to find a new game for their Wii U.

Of course it's going to backfire on them. The world and his wife are going to boycott the Wii U SKU and the game is being released amongst a shedload of high profile titles such as Wind Waker HD, GTA V, FIFA 14, Assassin's Creed IV, CoD and Pokemon and on top of that people are going to be saving up to buy the PS4 and 720. This really isn't going to end well lol.

Rayman was the only big game in february, hell it was since the launch......nothing more to say....it hurts too much

Bought it and love it.  If you own a Wii U and don't have this game, do yourself a favor and buy it.  Every Wii U owner should have this game. 



Stop hating and start playing.
