    Ubisoft has confidence (and really, who shouldn't? If you honestly believe Nintendo is in serious trouble, the WiiU will fail and Nintendo will go software only, slap yourself in the face with a fish dick) that the WiiU will turn itself around.

    A week after a Senior Engineer for EA Sports (lol) has tweeted (and deleted) that the WiiU is crap and Nintendo is "Walking Dead", Ubisoft has stated:

    And you know what, they're right. You can't complain about a lack of fan base for a console, when you're not giving the fans any reason to flock to the system to buy your game. While Ubisoft does dumb things (Like treat Patrice Beardo like shit), they are really giving the WiiU some great top of the line content. So it's hard to hate them, and Capcom is slowly doing it too.

    I expect this interview to never be posted on Kotaku

    Goodness, no. Only one of those things is true. The other two are just plain silly.

    capcom is supporting, ubisoft is supporting, platinum games is supporting even sega and square are supporting the wii u, EA are probably the only ones that are like "lol nintendo is doomed" which is sad because we did get good games from EA on the past on nintendo consoles

    And what if Ubisoft said "We're not developing for the WiiU"?
    "So? Assassin's Creed III sucked on the WiiU, and Rayman is a worse platformer than Mario." - Nintendo fans

    THIS thread is a clear example of doublethinking (See George Orwell's 1984). What makes Ubisoft more improtant than EA, software-centric or financially? I would argue it's the other way around, yet Nintendo fans are so quick to dismiss EA as worthless for the WiiU.

    So speaking of Capcom, didn't they say that they have unrevealed Wii U projects in the works?

    Jesus, because EA didn't care for the WiiU from the get go. They released half assed ports, none of their upcoming games are coming for it, and they made terrible decisions (ie mass effect). Ubisoft actually developed something new for the WiiU (ZombiU) and is bringing out their big games for it. Also, Assassin's Creed 3 was shit to begin with anyways. I played it on the PS3, I can't believe Ubisoft released that mess.

    Ubisoft also has a better range of games reaching across different genres that all feel unique and fun. EA has the sports games that haven't changed since 2006, Dead Space which turned into a Gears-esque type game, Battlefield, and... what?

    They actually said the opposite and have Rayman Legends and Assassin's Creed IV: Pirate's Booty coming for it.

    But hey it's good to know we're ready to jump down the throats if we need to.

    EDIT: Also holy fuck using George Orwell's novel on dystopic, totalitarian society to discuss the gaming industry is absolutely hilarious. OH NO MY GAMES THIS IS EQUIVALENT TO OPPRESSIVE GOVERNMENT GUYS.

    You guys better hope that Assassin's Creed and Watch Dogs doesn't sell like shit on the Wii U because if it does, that's the end of this Ubisoft support.

    I find it funny that we care so much of Ubisoft's third party support, when nearly all wii u arguments have cried about it only needing its first party titles.
    I find it funny that people who say FUCK EA I DON'T PLAY THEIR GAMES, aren't spewing the same thing about these Ubisoft games.
    Eat some starbursts Gbatemp, you're becoming a roaring contradiction.

    Ubisoft produces a pile of shit. But if you dig through this pile of shit you can find gold grains. EA on the other hand produces hot air.

    Explain to me how Mass Effect is a terrible decision? Unless you're talking about them porting it to the Wii U in which case... eh? It'd be stupid to buy the game on any console where you can't play the previous two honestly.

    Also explain how Dead Space is anything like Gears of War because like the only difference they share is shooting things in the third person. Gameplay is different, tone is different, story is different.

    I think the terrible decision was ME3 for WiiU and ME Trilogy for all other consoles, same price. At least IMO.

    I'm honestly extremely confused as to why EA is making such strange and grandiose claims about why the WiiU is bad. If I recall correctly, didn't they recently say that the WiiU struggled to run a port of the Frostbite 2 engine, and that they weren't even going to bother trying anything with Frostbite 3 because of it?

    I don't know the specifics, obviously, but that just seems like they didn't try very hard at all. My understanding is that the WiiU is similar to the PS3 and Xbox 360 in terms of power, and Frostbite 2 ran on those devices just fine. And aren't they getting Frostbite 3 games later this year? Very strange.

    I could understand it if EA were taking the same route as a number of other developers and saying that they weren't going to look into anything on the WiiU until it got more market penetration, but saying that it's uselessly underpowered? Odd.

    No the double think analogy actually fits perfectly well to describe peoples see sawing, bi-polar, reactionary posting here lately, I have used it myself multiple times even.

    Now:

    WE ARE AT WAR WITH EASTASIA ELECTRONIC ARTS, WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN AT WAR WITH EASTASIA ELECTRONIC ARTS, EAURASIA UBISOFT IS OUR ALLY, THEY HAVE ALWAYS BEEN OUR ALLY!

    A couple of months ago when Rayman on the Wii U was delayed:

    WE ARE AT WAR WITH EAURASIA UBISOFT, WE HAVE ALWAYS BEEN AT WAR WITH EAURASIA UBISOFT etc

    Remember that? If I recall correctly ShadowSoldier was one of the most vocal people telling Ubi to go fuck themselves constantly to the point where his posts were getting deleted. Now watch him hold Ubi up on a pedestal because they said something positive about his precious Wii U.

    So yep, it is classic delusional doublethink straight out of 1984.

    To be fair, it would have been extremely expensive to port over the trilogy - they'd have to do a port job for 3 games rather than just one. They would've been better off not porting the game at all, but there you go.

    Also, yay, yet another "Persec-U-tion!" thread. Whoopee.

    The most ironic thing is that ShadowSoldier was the one that was that made the thread Absolutely bashing Ubisoft about the Rayman Delay, and is now making this thread~


    Side note, Everything Ubisoft is making, is also coming to current gen consoles and Next gen consoles. So for people thinking this is incentive to pick up a wii u... It's not ._.

    Wait a minute! Ubisoft are the good guys now? I remember a lot of of bitching, people proclaiming they would boycott the gaem, fatwas against Microsoft... Now Ubisoft are the good guys? So if EA are worse than Hitler does this make Ubisoft 1937-1945 era Joesph Stalin?
