Ubisoft Explain Why Rayman Legends is Exclusive to Wii U

Ubsoft have explained why they decided to make Rayman Legends a Wii U exclusive. Many people have wondered why the game isn’t available on the Xbox 360 or PS3 seeing as the Xbox SmartGlass and Vita could have been used in place of the Wii U GamePad. Well, in an interview with Nintendo Power, level designer Chris McEntee explained that the the game is only available on Wii U because it comes with all the tools required to play it.

“Technically we could to it with SmartGlass [for the 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.”

McEntee and Ubisoft clearly feel passionately that the player should have the whole experience of the game and not just some of it because they don’t have the peripherals needed to play it. McEntee went on to say:

“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.”

What do you all think? Are you happy Rayman Legends is an exclusive title for the Wii U or are you cynical like me in thinking it’ll find its way onto the other consoles eventually anyway? Let us know your thoughts!
