Ubisoft: Rayman Legends exclusive because gamepad is bundled with console

#1StickMen1090Posted 10/7/2012 10:19:55 PM
According to Ubisoft’s Chris McEntee, bringing Rayman Legends to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 is possible. However, because Wii U is packaged with a Wii U GamePad, which features a 6.2 inch touchscreen, the upcoming platformer is a Wii U exclusive; if the game was coming to PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360, to get an experience similar to Wii U, consumers would have to purchase a PlayStation Vita or a touchscreen device that’s compatible with the Xbox SmartGlass application.

“Well, technically we could to it with SmartGlass [for Xbox 360] and with the Vita being linked to the PlayStation 3. The possibility could be there, but we chose to really focus on Wii U specifically because it has a special toolset, and because everyone that buys it gets what they need to play the game.”

“We don’t want to have the player dependent on other technology that they have to purchase to make sure they can play the full experience. Here you buy the Wii U system, you buy the game, and you can experience all of the content without extras. And we didn’t want to give somebody half of the experience just for the sake of getting it out on another console. We want the player to get everything that we have to offer them from this game.”

Ah well, their loss.
I understand the reasoning about don't want to leave customers with just half experience.
But really they are missing out on loads of the customers. Namely the fans on PS3/360 that has no wish to get a Wii U.

As far as I remember, didn't Origins sell worse on Wii compared to PS3 & 360...?

I can see their point. I also have to wonder if Nintendo didn't help fund the game, the first one wasn't a massive success after all...

You don't know, maybe Nintendo funded the game to get exclusivity. Ubisoft won't make more money if a game is exclusive to one console.

I think the first one was very cheap to make and they ported it to every system out their.

PS+ has paid it's self for me. So from here on out I will refer to any new games as free.

Can't you use a Pro Controller to play the game?

It's okay, Nintendo can keep it, it looks really bad compared to Origins

Well, perhaps Sony will offer PS3/Vita bundles in the future.

But for now, it looks like it'll stay permanently exclusive.

And if it was on the PS4/720 they'd be in the same boat. I don't see why Nintendo getting exclusives is treated like this terrible thing when fans of those consoles wouldn't give 2 poops if the situation was reversed and the Wii U didn't get the game.
