These days, all the kids are playing M rated games while the adults are lining up for Pokemon. Which game is a kid's game now?

I don't see what is so idiotic about this. The Wii U hasn't sold as well as they had hoped and as a result, Ubisoft don't see how Rayman can sell enough copies on the Wii U to turn a profit. The only thing they can do is make it a multiplatform release to compensate for that.

Its actually good business sense in a situation like this.

Honestly, pretty pissed. The game is finished. On NeoGAF a quote from one of the developers was posted. He said he and his team have been working overtime and weekends for six months to make sure it hit their February release date. He's pissed about the delay, we're pissed about the delay. Everyone's pissed about the delay.

There will be other games out by September. This suddenly is no longer a must buy.

As a non-Wii U owner, I'm glad that I'll be able to play the sequel to my favourite platformer this gen without having to shell out big money for a new console. But, from a business perspective, Rayman is not going to be a franchise any longer if Ubisoft keeps this up.

What is this, the 7th time it's been delayed? (hyperbole) Not only has it been a while since the game was unveiled, but by the time it comes out nobody will be that interested. It'll be known as "That Walmart Demo" and that'll be it.
PM (on GFaqs) me if you add me (I won't bite)
