Shiggy said Pikmin was delayed to make it perfect. I read where he thought it was great... But wanted it to be better than great. I guess we'll see.

I agree about the VC.... No reason it's not out now.

The should have lead with the Virtual Console and at the very least they should have pushed to get Pikmin 3 out by March. The Wii U is very cool, and I like what it has to offer as far as hardware goes, but I need games. Gimme some games Nintendo!

I don't think they're protesting Nintendo... They're protesting they're own company for delaying the WiiU version.

At least that's what I got from it.

Nah, these guys are saying there's NO reason for the WiiU version to be delayed as it's totally finished. I say good on them!

UbiSoft is delaying Rayman Legends after they decided to make it for 360 and PS3. The WiiU version is already gold, but they're holding it back to release it on all platforms in September simultaneously.

Nintendo has no part in this.

You'd think with the lack of games on the Wii U that Ubisoft would hurry up and release Rayman Legends to capitalize on that.

Yeah, which is dumb. Just release the game now on the WiiU then the other versions in September. Not like it's going to sell good in September anyway since GTAV is hitting that same month.

Exactly. Rayman Legends isn't this giant Xbox/PS3 title. Release the Wii U now, it'll sell pretty good since there aren't really any alternatives and then let Xbox and PS3 happen when they happen.

It's not a competitive game. Makes no sense to delay it on any platform when it's ready to go. I doubt we'd see many XBox / PS protesters if it were released for wii U on time.

Anyway, what are you guys expecting from tomorrow's Nintendo Direct?

Seems like Nintendo forgot they released a new console. I get it, the 3DS is rad, but what about this brand new next gen console? It sure could use some games Nintendo.

I guess announcements that won't matter until six months or more from now don't translate into immediate sales.

I didn't care for NSMBU so I probably won't bother unless it's free.

They don't want to create a new IP, make marginal profits, but then turn it into a successful franchise. They just want every game to sell like CoD. Honestly, the industry could use another crash.
To add on that, how do they expect CoD/ACIII/multiplatform game to perform on a brand new system with an already established base on two consoles that have been around for years.

It's stupid for Rayman to be delayed for multiplatform release because this would be the perfect time to get their game out and gain sales. When this now comes out in September, the game's sales are going to be eaten up by the likes of GTA and the next FPS sequel. They are literally going to be hurting themselves with this stupid move.

If you read about any information on the games being ported, all of them were handed to much smaller studios with even less people working on them and polishing the games for Wii U. In this generation, games were developed on XB360 and ported over to PS3 and now that's happening with Wii U.

Launch games usually suck, and yes that's including games that weren't meant to be on the system in the first place. The next gen systems (Wii U, PS4, and XB720) are all GPU focused instead of CPU focused like this gen was, it's no wonder why those ported games have a hard time on Wii U.

The only port that shows a lot of promise is NFSMW, and that's because it looks like the people working on it actually care about doing a good job.

Nintendo did state that this Direct would be 3DS focused.
