Rayman Legends A Wii U Exclusive No Longer, Going Multiplatform
Exclusivity has proven to be a tough thing to hang on to, hasn't it? Kinda sad.
Mere days after learning that Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor's Edge was no longer a Wii U exclusive, we find that Nintendo has lost another one: Rayman Legends.
Ubisoft has confirmed that the anticipated title will be coming to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. On a sour note for Wii U owners, they have to wait for the game, too- All three versions appear set to launch in September; originally, the Wii U version was going to release on February 26. Said EMEA chief marketing and sales officer Geoffroy Sardin:
"We heard from many Xbox & Playstation owners and Rayman fans who told us they really wanted to play Rayman Legends on their current system. We decided to give the fans what they wanted while at the same time broadening the audience exposed to this innovative and memorable game."
Well, hey, we like it when as many gamers as possible have access to fun games. There's nothing wrong with that. But personally, I find that exclusive software is one of the more entertaining parts of the industry, especially as exclusive offerings can be head-and-shoulders above multiplatform games.
