In all honesty I think LoS 2 is a pretty good game and nowhere near as bad as the gaming press would lead one to believe.

My favourite 3d Castlevania game is still Lament of Innocence on the PS2, with a few tweaks it could have been a 3D SotN IMHO.

So what does that mean for people like me who already have rayman on the Vita and who were intending to purchase legends for the Wii U? Can I get the legends content as dlc for the original version? Even so I still prefer a Wii U version 5 levels isn't the biggest deal even if in principal this whole situation stinks.

@Yamagushi There's nothing wrong with used games. The majority of games made are poor products, that offer little value for money. It's no mystery why the used market exists. There are alot of people who trade their games for new ones after beating them in 6 hours. The industry shouldn't cry when products don't meet ridiculous sales expectations or that people trade them for new ones. Innovate, adapt to the times, make better products or fail. We are paying the price for their failures and are being told it's our fault.

The Wii U is not a Dreamcast. Sega didnt have the money to push the system and scrapped it and reinvented itself in order to save the business. Nintendo is an incredibly healthy cash rich company, they will be fine and even if the Wii U sells in Gamecube numbers theyll still be profitable and maybe even more so with the digitalmmarket place they have established now. Lets not forget Microsoft has really dropped the ball with the xbox one, which is a good thing for Nintendo. People maybe likely to oick up a ps4 with wii U as a secondary system. Im turning my back on xbox after a 10 year love affair with their restrictive online drm, lesser focus on gaming and weaker than ps4 hardware. Ps4 + wii u for me this gen and the money i dont spend on M$ will go elsewhere.

Looking forward to the game. I couldn't care less for sonic's friends just take full advantage of the wii u's unique features and make it more along the lines of sonic generations and colours and less like shadow the hedgehog.

@QuickSilver88 Agree about your point regarding diminishing returns. Ill be able to build a pc with better specs than ps4/nextbox without going for top of the line hardware. I'll wager my present gaming pc has the capability to outdo them. It comes down to games at the end of the day. i'll get my 3rd party fix on other consoles and pc and Ill use wii u for its exclusive and unique games. The fact that wii u can handle ports of late 360/ps3 hardware out of the gate is a positive not a negative when you compare those games to launch titles on ps3/360. The "slow" wii u interface is also less laggy than my 360 dashboard which seems to only run smooth offline and with an empty hard disk. ok now ive gone on too much of a tangent. haha

It's still early days, if things are still the same in a few years time then we can declare the system a flop. People seem to have short memories of what other console launches were like. I dont think Nintendo is competeting in the same market as sony and m$ and truthfully I think the hardware is perfectly fine for Ni tendo style franchises. Losing EA is a big deal as far as business gos, but not the end of the worldm- especially for people purchasing the wii u for its exclusives such as myself anyway. Nintendo just needs to push the system with marketing, refine its online strategy and get some exclusive games. They dont need to beat ps4 and xbox sales, they just need to establish.a healthy market presence and cater to the systems audience and it will be fine and more than profitable. All this doom and gloom nonsense gets old fast.

Its a good little system one just needs to take it for what it is. It wont be for everyone and thats fine. Get. little tired of people who have never played it before bashing on it.
