    These features could have been implement with the PS3/Vita too. I suppose this is the least they could give to Wii-U owners for the delay…

    @OlderGamer same here. I wasn’t happy when I learnt about the delay but never intended on boycotting it. And I love my WiiU despite its lack of good games so… Well, that’ll be one more ! ;)

    Except Cyber, that will likly never happen. Devs have to consider the % of PS3 owners that own a Vita as well as a PS3 vs the fact that everyone who owns a WiiU has the gamepad. If you want WiiU style controls, buy a WiiU. And really the gamepad is one of the biggest strengths of the system. It makes for a fantastic and unique way of playing most games.

    ^ Yeah, I’m sure the tablet-controller can deliver some great experiences. But still, the devs have already created this extra content, would it be so hard (or expensive) to give this gameplay to PS3/Vita owners. Maybe SONY could give some $$$ to promote the idea…

    Yeah, I agree with what you are saying. It wouldn’t seem to hard to do to.

    Personally speaking, I’ll buy a PS Vita one day or another, not right away. Maybe when there’ll be a new redesigned model and when the memory cards will be cheaper. I still have to play Rayman Origins and I think I’ll be buying it for the Vita. If Ubishoft made these features available for the PS3/Vita I would be buying Rayman Legends too. Maybe I’m just the minority…
