    Every time I see an article about this game it ALWAYS has an additional qualifier for WiiU. Lol ubi you are just reminding people how you screwed WiiU owners with your “But WiiU gets this little bonus YAY! Hear that WiiU owners? It’s not exclusive anymore but atleast you get this lame cheap freebie, YAY!!”

      Well since they already delayed the game and all, this is better then nothing I guess

      I would say that the “screwing” part is the huge delay for an already finished game. Having a $350 system gathering dust is way more offensive than other people being able to enjoy the game too.

        Well you have a point too, but my whole point was, Ubi you screwed WiiU fans, stop trying to make up for it with really teeny tiny bonuses. They aren’t ******** making me like you more. :)

  • Sweet, gotta download this later.
