This thread is like a bizarre comedy skit where everyone is surprised by the obvious.

I look forward to this game getting a Metacritic user review score of, like, 3/10 even as all the critics give it 10/10. Just because it proves my point with which side is the more obnoxious one.

Please stop, you're breaking my heart and it's not even Valentine's Day!

You're right, it's trivial, it's so trivial that there's no point in belittling people over their rights as consumers to spend - or not spend - their money as they see fit. I really felt like rewarding Ubisoft for their support of the Wii by buying this game and they get cold feet at just about the last possible minute. So now instead of having my money they can kiss my butt. Now I know my butt tastes like cherry ice cream, but most companies would take the money...

I am surprised people call this delay "Last Minute" The most "Last Minute" delay I have ever seen was for a PS3 title called Haze. My friend was looking forward to it so badly, 10 hours before stores would open on it's "launch day" the company came out and said it would be delayed 4 months. My friend was really upset but come 4 months later when he got his hands on it. He played it for 2 hours and never touched it again, I guess it wasn't as good as he thought it would have been.

Nintendo will release a Micro-Console as a companion device to the NX and next Handheld Console.

Hmmm, that ain't a half bad idea for a play; Ubisoft, Rayman, and the series of overdramatized events.

I used to travel the stars, then I discovered Earth, and these incredibly addicting things called 'Video Games.'

Tragicomedy indeed.

Yep. The lead of the team standing with a protest banner does change things, no? I don't see how Ubisoft could quietly ignore that.

Good for Ancel for not wanting his projects to fail again because of when they're released.

It'll be funny when the game doesn't sell at all thanks to being released the same month as GTA V (this will happen btw, remember Blur? No? Exactly)

Advertising or not, it's still a big risk. Yes, you save money, but at what cost? They have the perfect window of opportunity to release it with little to no competition, and they still choose to delay it anyway.

This may be be the greatest marketing campaign in video game history. Minimum advertising dollars spent but everybody who is remotely interested in video games now knows who Rayman is. Legends is going to smash the 2 million mark set by Origins.

How horribly cynical if true, but it would demonstrate that Wii U owners are more committed to traditional games from third parties than Wii owners were. That could be marketing data worth a public flogging!

He's on to something actually. PR is well aware of the truism that all publicity is good publicity.

What better way to sell to PS3/ Xbox fanboys than piss off the Nintendo ones?

The question is: at what point is it too late for Ubisoft to change their minds? I don't know how long it takes to press discs and all that, but given it was only a few weeks from publication when they dropped the bomb, if this is a last-minute decision wouldn't that mean that media was already printed and packaged? How long before a game ships is it actually in boxes and ready for delivery to the shops?
