Nintendo owners feel snubbed by Rayman Origins yet again thanks to a bizarre pre-order bonus campaign.
Pre-order bonuses don't surprise anyone these days. Even console-specific retailer-exclusive pre-order add-ons are somewhat commonplace. But, there's something quite odd about Rayman Legends.
Pre-ordering the game at GameStop will entitle you to get a console-specific bonus costume for use in the game. For example, for Xbox 360, you'll get to see Rayman dressed in a Splinter Cell-themed costume (above). And on PlayStation 3, you'll get Rayman dressed in an Assassin's Creed 4-themed costume. However, on Wii U, you'll get Barbara dressed in an Assassin's Creed 3: Liberation costume--a game that's a Vita exclusive.
Perhaps Ubisoft is secretly hinting at a Wii U port of the Vita game (unlikely). However, it seems like Nintendo fans are none too happy about getting exclusive DLC for a game that they can't play on their console--and they've been none too happy about Ubisoft's support for what once used to be a Wii U exclusive.
Hey Wii U fans, enjoy this Vita skin!
Haha, I can't believe people are upset about what DLC they get from preordering. People who are butt hurt need to stfu. ...
I purchased my gathering dust Wii U for Rayman Legends! This choice doesn't offend me because it's silly DLC, but remind...
