Yes, that's right, Rayman Legends for the Wii U has finished development.  Completely.  It is just sitting there waiting to be pressed and shipped.  But Ubisoft has decided not to ship it until the PS3 and Xbox360 versions are ready in the fall, six months after the Wii U version finished.  Seriously, this is a game I would like to buy, but Ubisoft just won't take my money for it!  Well they will, in the form of a pre-order, but they won't ship it to me.

Imagine being the poor dev who worked 12 to 16 hour days for six months to try and make the ship date only to find out the ship date moved six months into the future.  They could've worked 6 to 8 hour days for a year instead of 12 to 16 hours for six months and still made their ship date.
Prayin' for a 20!
