People like you are the reason Wii U will fail. You bought the system, but find any excuse not to buy 3rd party games for it. Not buying Rayman Legends for Wii U, just because Ubi delayed it to port to other platforms, just ensures less future 3rd party games on the system. You reap what you sow!

well said. Fanboys will rage at you for this though. You know logic is frowned upon on the internet.

As someone who gold medals Murfy's levels (and those are arguably the only levels that have touch interactions that aren't dumb and unnecessary) in the extreme challenges, let me add what seems to be an oft overlooked critique of the notion that the Wii U version is the best. We're talking about choosing to use an inferior touchpad that's more of a pain to use than a pleasure. I have a 60" HDTV but to play the definitive version, the game makes me look at the crap LCD with a resistive touchscreen and a shitty, cheap-feeling stylus.

I much preferred Origins on PS3. I bought into the hype that Legends was amazing, when in reality it's a lot less challenging and enjoyable than Origins. It must be the Johnny-come-latelies who only paid attention to Legends because it was one of the only prominent third party games for the Wii U that overinflate how good it is.

agreed id rather support this on ps4. No load times, better graphics, trophies, streaming and no tablet.

The Wii U game is already running at 1080p...and it's two-dimensional artwork...I somehow doubt it'll look better on the PS4.

Better graphics? really? they are basically the same, lol.

 

Thats cool though, play on the system you like, but this is a thread about the game being on sale for the Wii U.

I just read an article about the p4 differences yesterday, and the developers were yes talking about improved graphics and effects, and zero load times. For some reason, they seemed to think that was a REAL BIG DEAL, but IMHO a few seconds wait isn't enough to bother me.

 

I'd like to read a review first comparing PS4 to WiiU before popping for either version.

Of course. Why wouldn't they be?

I don't have a PS4, but do have a Wii U, so I am interested in the version this thread is about.  I still want to know how Gareee determined this could be found for around $8 used.  ........Anyone?

It was used at BB for $8.99, but its back up now to $34.99 or so. I should have got it when I saw it at that price instead of waffling on it.

 

I think I'll sit this out a bit and see what the comparison reviews are between the ps4 and wiiU versions. We still have super Mario wii u and super Mario 3d wii u to run through, so it would have either been put into the backlog stack, or bumped to the top anyway.

Thanks, I'm going with this deal now since it is cheaper than most used copies and my 6 year old has worn out his controller playing rayman origins.

I nabbed one. Amazon Warehouse had a similar price for a Like New, but I'm willing to pay the extra $1 (decisions!) for the peace of mind of a brand new copy.

Digital Foundry: Rayman Legends for Wii U Still The "Definitive Version" :-

Since that review said the WiiU was actually the best version, I finally popped for it over the ps4 version.

Its definitely worth the $16 with gamers unlocked.

Did you even read that? DF thinks its definitive due to the gamepad levels not the visuals. Lol! you should have come with something better than that. Now to crush you.

"The PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions of Rayman Legends look the same as the rest, except at a higher resolution"

 "These PS4 and Xbox One versions of Rayman Legends offer better graphics rendering while eliminating all loading times"

"Ubisoft has been able to display the game's textures without any compression. The results are immediately noticeable as sharper visuals allow for even more detail while highlighting the gorgeous hand-drawn style of the game."

Nice job selectively quoting IGN there.

The PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions of Rayman Legends look the same as the rest, except at a higher resolution. But I didn't feel like this made a big difference in the visual quality, because Rayman's strength is in its arts style rather than its technology. The only benefit here is reduced load times that quickly allow you to zip into a level of choice. The PS4 version has one additional feature: You can take screenshots and then pan and zoom using the Dual Shock 4's touch pad.

It's funny you're brought this issue back up 4 days after the fact. Yet you claim you keep "falling for troll bait". Lol! You put your foot in your mouth again. That's 2 times that you lost today.  :rofl:
