Hi everyone! I'm a gamer in the US, I'm really excited for Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag, but I have just one question about the collector's edition.
In Europe, the Skull Edition and Buccaneer Edition is available for all consoles(WiiU, PS4, XB1, XB360, PS3) and PC, but when the Collector's Edition was announced in the US, it was announced for all systems EXCEPT the Wii U. Why? If you're making it for all the consoles in Europe, why not the US? I was especially wanting to get a special edition on the Wii U. Also, I thought that Ubisoft was supposed to support the Wii U, so it intrigues me that past gen consoles would get the CE but not the Wii U. Does anyone have any information?

It probably wouldn't sell enough.

What controversy? Your plight does not make this situation controversial.

Read a dictionary.

@posters 2 and 3 Yeah that's what the Ubisoft rep told me. But it still doesn't explain Europe. Maybe they appreciate the Wii U more there? Personally, I've seen a lot of people play Wii U, maybe they're not all from the US.

@poster 4 The definition of controversy is "disagreement, typically when prolonged, public and heated. It passes the mandatory requirement and most of the secondary requirements, so it is indeed controversy. Check your dictionary, and check your privilege.

It was never a thing, it failed even before it had a chance take off :/

I feel sorry for the Wii U as if it's a person.

The only "controversial" edition Ubisoft would put out is if it was PETA approved. But, as far as Nintendo goes they shouldn't be getting AC IV until Ubisoft release's the whole series to the WII / WII U. Don't know why they didn't get together with Nintendo for it. I wouldn't call it a controversy though.

Console wars are not allowed on the Forums so I suggest you stop.

You could always buy one off ebay or wherever that doesn't have a game, then buy a wii u version of AC4 and put it in the box. :)

As far as I know, you're the only person heated about this, and your thread is the only acknowledgement I've seen. Don't attempt to shoot my own advice back at me, because there's a chance I've already done it.

@Post 16 Good idea, especially since it'd be stupid to go to Europe for one. Also, my brother might get it on XB1, so I could still buy it on Wii U and share the contents. I still want an answer as to why I cant get a Wii U CE in America from the start.

I'm not trying to start a console war, I just want an answer as to why my preferred console isn't getting a CE in my country.
