Do any of these discounts tempt you into a Ubi download this week?

2 days late posting this eh? lol

Anyways, I picked up Rayman 3D yesterday since i had planned to buy the portable version of Rayman 2. That and $14.99 was a good deal for that game too.



King47 said:

I'm thinking of picking up black flag, is it any good? I haven't played any AC games before.



Artwark said:

Yo Ubisoft, what about the original Rayman game you ported on the 3DS? Why not a price drop for that one?



Dark-Link73 said:

@King47 I personally love it, and if you link your Uplay account to, and try to do all the mini challenges, you'll get even more skins, weapons, and way more hours of gameplay from trying to accomplish all the challenges and special badges.



Dark-Link73 said:

Think of getting Rayman Origins but I DLed the demo and Rayman is too small maybe on the fact that the game was originally designed to be played on a TV vs a portable screen.

I'm also going to get Splinter Cell 3D.



GooRoo said:

Really want Rayman Legends at that price but I also want a physical copy. I'll probably hold out until Best Buy puts it on sale and I can stack my 20% off Gamer's Club Unlocked membership on it.



6ch6ris6 said:

still more expansive than used copys. guess i dont have to care about this not being in europe then



SecondServing said:

I bought Rayman Legends at launch. Glad to support quality 3rd party stuff. I recommend everyone else does.



AJSjedi said:

Will assassins creed unity or watch dogs be part of the sale? OH THATS RIGHT those are skipping wiiu, well SKREWU Ubisoft



0utburst said:

Probably because the wii u can't handle the graphics. It's skipping the 360 and ps3 too. I'd be mad at ubi if they'll skip wii u and make it for pS3 orr 360.

Not getting any of those if it comes to Europe as I prefer physical copies of those games I want on the list.



Spoony_Tech said:

Nope, Rayman is still not deep enough for me and can't quite figure out why Zombie U is still so expensive??! Will wait for both to hit 20$ before i take the plunge! I've got plenty to play till then!



PinkSpider said:

Why do these prices not seem as good as the Europe prices
ZombiU was £7.99 in the UK



kingston589 said:

Wow none of these are good deals. Almost all of them can be picked up physical way cheaper.



SchamMan89 said:

I'll wait until ACIV is 20 bucks, then I'll download it. It didn't take ACIII long to get there...



dadajo said:

The only thing I am interested in here is cloudberry kingdom since I already got Legends and my local video game stores have games like ZombiU for $20 plus it is a physical copy.



Offspring said:

I would grap a couple of these on my Wii U but I'm only 79 points from getting another $5 from the delux promotion which ends this month and I don't have an external storage device.




freaksloan said:

Just paid $19 for Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag on Amazon, $7.99 for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars 3D on Ebay and $18 for ZombiU on Amazon.
Sorry, I don't do digital unless there is no other options. Makes no sense to pay more for less.



TrueWiiMaster said:

Most of these sale prices should be the regular prices by now. I'd get Ghost Recon and Rayman 3D if they were on sale for $10 or less, but I could get both as hard copies for cheaper than these sale prices (the same goes for almost every game on the list, but those are the two I want and don't have). I'll probably just pick up Cloudberry Kingdom.



booopn said:

I've seen physical copies of these games new for cheaper. I think Ubisoft is on board with cheaper pricing, judging by their retail pricing but Nintendo should really get its act together and realize there are competitors like Steam that are way more price competitive in the digital space.



AJSjedi said:

I respectfully disagree with you about wiiu not being able to handle the graphics. Wiiu gets so much flak about not being "powerful" enough yet all the games I have played graphics have been awesome. Personally I care much more about gameplay though



AJSjedi said:

They said the same thing about aliens colonial marines, I think anyone who really thinks watch dogs will ever arrive on wiiu is being naive. Which is a shame, I was really looking forward to it on wiiu. IF I ever get a PS4, that will be the game to justify my purchase, bit I would much prefer it on wiiu



dumedum said:

@BieberBlows what do you mean, the deluxe promotion is not ending this month at all.

Rayman Legends is cheaper with the sale than on Amazon.
Also, keep in mind Digital4LYFE versions are superior with better framerate performance



dumedum said:

@AJSjedi the game is definitely coming to Wii U. There is a whole studio dedicating to it and giving it the final touches. There is no risk that Watch Dogs will skip Wii U. Colonial Marines was a disaster so of course they cancelled the Wii U version.



nyallj said:

Picked up Rayman Legends and ZombiU last night. Better deals for me than buying physical and shipping to my country. Getting ACIV on Amazon though, currently $24.99. Another $12 shipping to my country and I'm saving. (Saving about $4, but that's like a lunch money here )
Got Pure Chess and Dr. Luigi last night too. Can't decide between Gianni Sisters and Unepic. Any help?



2Sang said:

I'm tempted to pick up rayman origins, but I think I'll wait for it to go even lower in a year or 2.



james_squared said:

I'll definitely pick up Rayman Legends. I hope I remember to do that when I get home sometime later today...hopefully...maybe. I should really get back to work.



AJSjedi said:

Well I won't be surprised when the article pops up here and other video game sites that says "watch dogs wiiu cancelled"
Think about it, neither of the new assassins creed games are coming to wiiu, even the ps3/360 version. Watch dogs is due out in about six weeks on every other console. Do you remember a recent article that said a 2014 watch dogs wiiu was "a possibility" do you really think months later Ubisoft will release a game on wiiu that has been out for a long time on all other systems? Why so they can cry "oh look how bad it sold on wiiu!"

I know ubi was the biggest 3rd party supporter of wiiu for a long time but that ship has sailed



nf_2 said:

I didn't realize that AC4 was $25 on amazon, thanks guys. Looks like I'll be doing that instead of downloading.



BinaryFragger said:

Picked up Rayman 3D, which is a fun port of the Dreamcast version of Rayman 2.
Already own Rayman Origins (Wii) and Rayman Legends (Vita), both phenomenal games.



rmeyer said:

Cloudberry kingdom get that if you don't already have it great party game



faint said:

@AJSjedi that was different the game was canned because it was almost universally hated on other consoles. It was also sega. Different company.



AJSjedi said:

No I get that, I was just saying that the wiiu one was advertised as the definitive version that was coming later than the other versions and look how that turned out. Yeah it got horrible reviews and I know that didn't help, but I suspect if watch dogs gets bad reviews the same thing will happen like it did to aliens. Off topic, how is that major jerkface randy pitchford not in jail for what he did? Scamming for years while funneling money into BORINGlands when it was supposed to go towards aliens?



DiscoGentleman said:

Damn! I just bought Rayman Legends for $40 when it first dropped last month. Welp. I guess you win some, you lose some.



Kyloctopus said:

I'm interested in Rayman Origins. It may not be a good port, but at least it's cheap.



kill4game said:

Rayman Orgins or Rayman 3d. Which is better. (i only played the original long ago)



hcfwesker said:

My funds is maxed out on eShop, and still have 3 $50 eshop cards that are just waiting to be put on my account I bought during their sale. I'll nab Clooudberry Kingdom at that price, and Rayman Legends as well.

I really wish since they combined eShop accounts between WiiU and 3DS they'd let you have a more max amount than $200.

And, lol, AC4 for over $40 digitally, when it's been $25 on amazon for the past several weeks.



psyfig said:

For those of u guys who said it's only "digital copies" or "why pay more for less(than a physical copy)"... do know that the physical copy does not come with Club Nintendo Points, but the digital one does. And honestly it's cheaper digitally than physical for me here where I stay. So something to think about there before easily firing comments.



Olmectron said:

@jkvasn Yeah, Steam rules on digital sales; however, these are great steps for a company like Nintendo on the digital market (I know each developer choose its sales).

Oh, and AC IV is still $60 on Steam. It was $45 on last Holiday Sales.



Amrulez said:

I find some of these prices a complete joke and have to laugh how out of touch these companies can be at times. You can buy the disc version of Zombie U for under 25 bucks brand new pretty much anywhere yet here they have it on-sale at half price for 30 bucks LMAO. Pure comedy..good game IMO but please...



bizcuthammer said:

Already own physical copies of ZombiU and Rayman Legends on Wii U, which are the only 2 games on that list that I care about, so no thanks.



Genesaur said:

I think it's pretty funny how - at least for Black Flag and Rayman Legends, the only two on this list I expect to buy - it's cheaper to get a hard copy.



kyuubikid213 said:

I'll get one of these, Ubisoft. Probably one of the 3DS games since I don't have a hard drive for Wii U downloads.

In return, I expect continued support and no more jerking us around.



kwandar said:

Have they disconnected the Network ID from the hardware yet? Isn't it about time to give us real network IDs so that when our hardware explodes we can replace it without losing all our software purchases, Nintendo?

Seriously, I'd pick up another Wii U if the same account applied. As it is, I feel ripped off by E-shop pricing, and the disks work in multiple machines.



kwandar said:

@GooRoo The way the Nintendo ID works, I can't say I blame you for wanting a physical copy - unfortunately.

I thought Nintendo were going to fix this .... years later, nothing!



MeWario said:

@King47 I freaken love it! First game in the series I've ever played and it is brilliant!!! Sailing the seas, looking for treasure and swashbuckling through huge cities is so addictive. I couldn't recommend it more highly.



Laxeybobby said:

If this is repeated in UK then once converted from $ to £ then all of these are cheaper in disk form from online retailers. So I will just purchase the disc version. At least you have a trade in value when your finished with them unlike the downloaded version.



fluggy said:

I had a look yesterday n was totally gobsmacked!!! Some Launch games on eShop were still full price. Why? Darksiders 2 price has came right down at retail!!!! Why is it still £40 in eShop!! Its 16 months old!!!!!



kingston589 said:

@Uberchu your talking about the tom clancy games right? For 3ds? Yeah i went to big lots and all their games were 75 percent off including those tom clancy games.
Sorry i wrote on my post that it was best buy, i meant big lots woops.



Whopper744 said:

Seems cheaper to get them from eBay or something honestly. Digital prices for these games were a little crazy anyway.



TreesenHauser said:

I wish I had some money to spend, I'd love to get Assassin's Creed IV or Rayman Legends. Or both.



TwilightAngel said:

well i downloaded cloud berry kingdom the rest well i can get them cheaper elsewhere. I think this ubisoft saying get these games now, cause your not getting anymore from us this year.



not-just-yeti said:

18? I only count 17. [After checking out the original] …Oh, The Smurfs 2 — I can see why you might want to ignore that one.



Pod said:

I'm not going to buy any retail size games digitally. it's already ridiculous how much space some of the Wii U games I have take up. Nintendo was right to impose restrictions on game sizes on the Wii.
People will stop caring if they aren't being asked to care.

/grumpy old man



dumedum said:

@AJSjedi look if they wanted to cancel they would have said so. Why lose sales for those who will wait. It's coming for better or worse but it's 100 percent coming. There are enough games not coming no need to invent other stuff. That's just wrong.



Uberchu said:

@kingston589 oh ok. I havent been there in 2 or 3 years.

Also NSMB2 for 3DS is like $20 at BJ's but online it says its sold out, might have to go snag a copy from them. lol

EDIT:Just checked their website only saw 2 3DS things, and one was cubic Ninja for $1, might be worth it at that amazingly low price!
