I can believe that, at least watch dogs...I think I can forgive Ubisoft for legends if they give us these games (and we get them at the same time as everyone and they arent' shovel ports)

Depending on how the development is done for Watch Dogs on WiiU we might get a nice example of the power the hardware has compared to X360 and PS3. I wouldn't count on it since, I mean: its Ubisoft.

Considering they showcased Watch Dogs with the PC version, then the Wii U is the next best thing.

... Of course, Ubisoft's CEOs are all kinds of stupid, so I'm not expecting it to even release with the other versions [I don't believe for a second it's actually coming to the PS360 - but will be a quick port amongst the PS4 and X-Box 8's respective launches, since every launch has some ports and all].

That might have been the trade-off. And those look very much like the system sheets used by Gamestop -- so I doubt titles would be added without some knowledge.

That being said, neither EB Games Canada or Gamestop show those games on their website for WiiU. That is the date shown for Rainbow Six and Watchdogs on the PS3 and 360 for EBGames -- but it is written 31/12/2013 on the website. (Gamestop in the US does not list a date for Rainbow Six and does not have a formal entry for Watchdogs).

Yeah... I'll believe it when I see it. How can you expect good third party support at this point?

Well considering that the list says printed out on Feb 9th, and Rayman was just delayed last week, maybe they just didn't change it yet. I could see these being true, but didn't we see Splinter Cell listed for the Wii U? Why wouldn't that still be on the list, or maybe Ubisoft took it off retailers lists, because it was leaked too soon. Who knows only time will tell. Maybe there announcements for E3!

"A grain of salt", indeed! Both are tentative dates and hell, they still have Rayman listed in February! :-D

especially considering the recent news that need for speed: most wanted will be a port of the pc version i can't beleive how ubi would make the decision to just make an inferior port when the wiiu is the most viable system to port to

Wait, if that's true, does this mean we owe Ubisoft a apology?

I'd say so...if they release them all at the same time. Then I will e-mail Ubisoft an apology on behalf of all of Gonintendo...

Sorry guys, the list was fabricated. A Gamestop employee at gaf confirmed that the serial numbers dont match.

I would be overjoyed if true. I really hope there is a confirmation in the future and it will make extensive use of the GamePad.

It's the least Ubisoft can do now, since they claim that "they don't want to leave other console's owners disappointed", and in my opinion it COULD serve as an apology. However, it doesn't change the fact that releasing Rayman Legends in September is a really dumb move that will result in its not selling well (and the only two ways to fix it are: release the Wii U version earlier - which, apparently, they're not too keen on and there's all that Microsoft policy deal - or push the game even further back - which, needless to say, they will only do if they want to earn ALL of their fans' disapproval).

There goes the apology we would have made.

don't the SKU for Wii U games start with 24?
If so this is a fake.

My local EB Games still has a placeholder box for Metro Last Light on the shelves...

@Scrubelicious
Are SKU numbers the same world wide? If not, it could explain why.
