Its good to see a publisher, such as Ubisoft sticking to its pre Wii U promise of supporting the Wii U, much unlike the worst company in America, EA.

Give it a week. You will then see a cancellation article.

The xbox 720 has been confirmed "always online" and the PS4...is sub par at best.


People still have jokes on the Wii U?  I am kind of disappointed at everything (games and hardware) except The Last of Us for PS3.

@LeoLex_ no it won't since the system is new, and nintendo isn't in the same financial trouble that sega was in back in the day. Let me guess...Sony fanboy?

Same here. I like how some of the third party developers actually try to use the cool part of the Wii U. I'll probably still get it on my 360 so I can play with my brother-in-law in a different state, but I may just have to check this out on the Wii U as well. It seems fun.

@kiramasaki 

So what game has Ubisoft cancelled so far? They delayed Rayman Legends, but that's still coming out. 

Yeah that's right, go crawl back to your bridge.

@alrepairs There has been no confirmation from Microsoft that their new system will require "always online".  Everything is rumors until we hear it from Microsoft themselves.

@bluefox755 @alrepairs Wait,

Did you even read my comment?  and...what?

PS4 = Sub Par - That means it's okay, not bad.

Disappointed at everything = I'm not impressed or like the Wii U at the moment.

Yes, PS4 is sub par.  If you came to my house, my PC + PS3 gamepad would win your heart over the PS4.

@LeoLex_ What facts? That if it wasn't for Nintendo there would be no home consoles? or the fact they are innovators in the gaming world, unlike Sony the imitators who just rehash the same console over and over and steal ideas from everyone else? or the fact you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about? Run along you clueless child. You're embarrassing yourself.

@LeoLex_ If it wasn't for Nintendo there would be no home consoles. And the so called "crappy consoles" you speak of have been innovating gaming for 25+ years. You reckon you're 28, then I suggest you do a little research on video gaming before making asinine comments that make you look like a moron.

@LeoLex_ Except Sega's failures had everything to do with finances. The Dreamcast failed because they were in such financial trouble from failed peripherals that they rushed it to market, pissing off retailers, and they lost a lot of trust with their fans due to how many peripherals they churned out over the years prior.

@abHS4L88 @LeoLex_  

take your head out of your a***, and your tongue out of Nintendos..the gaming worlds answer to 'minimum effort maximum satisfaction', constant stream of crappy consoles and tech, its a disgrace..go bother someone else kirby...

@LeoLex_  

May not be a fanboy, but definitely not mature, making fun of a gaming console (who does that? Not even kids do that really). 

So how many games has Ubisoft canceled for the Wii U so far? I know they've confirmed a handful of games and delayed one, but so far no cancellations.

@alrepairs He is correct in saying what he did; subpar means below average, which can mean bad. If we were to convert the word subpar into a rating, it'd be a 4.0, if we'd convert 'okay' into a rating, it'd be a 6.0, which means, you think it's kind of poor. What you're really trying to say is that it's fair, but not quite up to standards. Just saying.

Compared to what "Next Gen" should offer from previous evolution, PS4 is late to the table.


Far, late.  Sadly, it isn't Sony's fault either.  It's lack thereof in the progress of this economy as GPU and CPU hardware is still violently expensive, while visual and physic fidelity is reaching a limit, HENCE why I said a PS3 game is the biggest i'm looking forward to.

@alrepairs @bluefox755 sub par means below par, which is bad, in golf terms, par means break even.  Compared to PC, sure, I am a pc gamer too, but you never said anything about comparing console to pc, is constantly upgradeable, of course it's going to be better in terms of raw power.  But some of us like having a console hooked up to our nice big tv while we sit on the couch, and don't want to be bothered moving our pc to the living room and back again.  Some of us like more than just the games pc has to offer.  PS4 will get games that PC won't, so you're making an arbitrary comparison, and calling a console sub par which you've never even seen much less played.
