Rayman Legends

'Fans' FURIOUS over Rayman Legends PS3/360 news

Ubisoft Facebook page under rage-fueled siege

The news that Rayman Legends would no longer be exclusive to Wii U was certainly a blow to Nintendo, no matter how happy it might have made PS3 and Xbox 360 fans. While Nintendo's keeping a poker face about the situation, however, its "fans" are not so stoic.

The game's multiplatform status and new September release date have brought blind fury to Ubisoft's Facebook page. Self-styled fans blame the delay on the PS3/360 release (Edit: Ubisoft apparently admits this, which frankly IS bloody silly of them), and are so angry at having to wait to play Rayman Legends, they'd rather never play it at all -- which sounds like a rather Pyrrhic tactic to me.

The publisher is weathering a storm of utter venom right now, as gamers take the delay to be a personal insult by a publisher trying to upset them on purpose.

As always, Destructoid did some real JARNALIZM to bring you the choicest cuts. You can rest assured, rationality and reason are running themes in the comments.

"with this decision you spit the whole Nintendo fanbase in the face. again! I'm just saying." - Remo Meier

"You really don't care about your customers or your brands....Really... Let's play another Assassin's Creed !!!!!1!!!!1!!" - Marco D'Onofrio

"Also I cant speak for everyone but with so many 3rd Party Devs fucking up these days you were the final straw for me Ubisoft. Thanks to you I no longer will be supporting ANY 3rd Party Dev on ANY system, dont care if its a PC game, Wii U game, PS4 game, or 720 game. You have killed off ANY support I give to ANY 3rd Party Devs. Im sticking with Nintendo's 1st Party and 2nd Party devs for the entire 8th gen." - Rey Hardy

"This is no different then when Crapcom low blowed everyone by cancelling Megaman Legends 3 for 3DS. I would be happier if the game was cancelled all together then this bullshit. You guys got greedy and lost what once made you good. You need to go bankrupt and start your company over again to get back your glory." - Rey Hardy, again.

"What the hell Ubisoft? Promising one of the greatest platforming series of all time as a Wii U exclusive only to turn on us LESS THAN THREE WEEKS BEFORE ITS LAUNCH. You lost a ton of potential customers with this asinine business move." - Nick Martini

"I just want to let you know that I will no longer be purchasing Legends." - Austin McLaughlin

"‎8====D die ubisoft, die" - Ahmad Sleiman Romero.

"WANT TO KNOW WHAT IS FUNNY? AT LEAST YOU WERE GOING TO GET A WHOLE LOT OF WII U OWNERS TO BUY YOUR GAME FOR SURE. AT LEAST YOU COULD HAVE RESTED FOR SURE THAT RGHT NOW RAYMAN COULD HAVE SOLD A GOOD AMOUNT OF COPIES. BUT GUESS WHAT, IT WILL PROBBABLY WON'T HAPPEN ANYMORE. WANT TO KNOW WHY? YOU LACK IN BUSINESS SKILLS. NOW YOU ARE GOING TO FUCKNG COMPETE WITH ZELDA, GTV AND OTHER AWESOME GAMES. IF YOU DON'T REVERSE THIS DECISIO AND AT LEAST HONOR THE WII U OWNERS EARLY COPIES, FUCK YOUR GAME AND I HOPE YOU DONT SELL SHIT!!!" - Steafh Ray Alvarez.

"boycotting ALL YOUR PRODUCTS" - Ahm Ed.

"There's a difference in a consumer being entitled, or a consumer being lied to. None of us are bothered with the game being released on multiple consoles, whats frustrating is the wiius delay. You have a serious integrity issue here and as such lost me as a customer for this product and all others." - Koop Hampsten.

"Ubisoft if you really cared about the fans. 1: You should release the Wii U version right now and release the xbox and ps version later, theres no point in launching all at the same time. 2: You should keep your words of saying that it was a Wii U exclusive, because now you guys are loosing credibility. 3: With this announcement, im no longer getting this game, because i feel cheated and betrayed by you guys, that only looked like a "make more money move". 4: You Ubisoft totaly lost one costumer, now i wont buy any of your courrent and future games, why?, because you lied to us, you lied to your fanbase, goodbye ubisoft." - Pk Starstorm Omega.

"Well Ubisoft, I think I'll take my pre-order off now. Not really angry because it's coming on other systems, but Nintendo hypes your game up through Nintendo Directs and even allows you to put a demo on the eShop. Nintendo trusted you... And you literally betrayed them. I might get the game used, I'm not sure. Not really in the mood of supporting you after this." - DigitalgreenTea Dgt.

"Here is a story about how Ubisoft treats their fans.

Fan:"Aww man I love Rayman Origins! Can't wait for the sequel!"

Ubi:"The sequel is coming soon! But it's a WiiU exclusive!"

Fan:" WTF!? Why?"

Ubi:" Because f**k you, that's why."

Fan:"Okay... guess I'll just go buy a WiiU then"

-Few months later-

Fan:"I bought a WiiU! I can finally play Rayman Legend in 3 weeks! can't wait! woohooo!"

Ubi:"..Nope, we're gonna make it multi-platform and also delay the game to September, so we won't upset our fans."

Fan:" WTF!? How about all the true fans who bought WiiU just because you said it was a WiiU exclusive!?? Why the hell would you do something like this?? I don't care if it is a multi-platform game or not, Just release the game on WiiU already!"

Ubi:"Well.. Just like I said.. because f**K you that's why! hahaha!" - Shunan Soap Xu.

"I hope everyone who has posted today has made Ubisoft come to their senses... Still disgusted and Shocked and mainly I feel cheated , lied and stabbed .." - James Mckenzie.

"Ubisoft you money hungry imbeciles, how the hell can you announce the game one year earlier as an exclusive and then next year release it for multi platform. I myself havent bought the WiiU but you have backstabbed the the whole Nintendo fanbase. I think its really pathetic, why have three consoles out when no exclusivity from you publisher being released. By the way when is ZombiU coming to ps/xbox 360 ???" - Adam Socha.

"God! I just want to punch one of you Ubisoft pricks in the face! Why the hell do you hate Wii U owners so much? You making ZombiU multiplatform too now? Why didn't you bring Far Cry 3 over to Wii U if this is your logic?" - Seth Hauschild.

"Well Ubisoft.. How does it feel fucking the Nintendo fanbase over by delaying a game that was set to be exclusive to Wii U? We get a lot of flame from Nintendo Haters, Now you making this shit worse... Fuck you Ubisoft." - Angel Luis Mercado.

"You screwed over all the people that bought a wii U for rayman legends. I wanted to buy it, i bought a wii U for it. Now i'm not buying it. I'll pick up lego city instead." - Jordan Powderley.

"BOYCOTT OF RAYMAN LEGENDS !! WHY SHIFT UNTIL SEPTEMBER FOR WII U ? TEMPORARY EXCLUSIVELY ON WII U IT WAS POSSIBLE. THE GAME IS FINISH. I CANCEL MY RESERVATION" - Arnaud Bastard.

Lacking recording/social features aside (I actually do love that aspect of the PS4), I've been really enjoying my Xbone. Sunset Overdrive is like Saints Row meets Tony Hawk and lovingly self-aware.

Just tried to explain the word BEAT to an ESL student. Reference.com has 58 variations of the definition. At the least, they can finally understand that Michael Jackson was not asking people to fight each other.

So I have enough coins to get a new character in Heroes of the Storm. I like big portly characters like the Butcher or Stitches, but I did enjoy my free week of Tychus. Crowd thoughts?
