Not quite a commercial distaster
When Rayman Origins failed to even break into the UK software top-forty following its launch in November last year, many suspected the worst for the gorgeous Michel Ancel developed platformer. But contrary to perception, the title has actually been profitable for publisher Ubisoft, and it believes that it will...
Just call it the comeback king; despite looking down and out when it launched on PlayStation 3 last year, Ubisoft Montpellier's cracking Rayman Origins has broken into the UK multiformat top-ten for the first time since its release
No doubt propelled by a slew of retailer discounts, the pretty platformer managed to climb ahead of Bethesda's RAGE to finish up in ninth on this week's best-selling..
Sony's lifted the lid on the PlayStation Vita's gigantic launch line-up for North America
Director of hardware marketing, John Koller, described the unprecedented 25 game strong launch line-up as the "biggest and best" any platform has ever released alongside. Even if Koller is paid to say these things, it's hard to disagree. Day one titles from the platform holder include Uncharted:..
Unsurprisingly, Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 has maintained its position aloft the UK sales charts

Never gonna happen?
With limited resources and poor sales, Beyond Good & Evil 2 has always looked like a difficult project for publisher Ubisoft to justify.

How much "French-ness" can you tolerate this morning? If your threshold is low, then we recommend returning to this trailer when it's more tolerable
Because this Rayman Origins trailer is ultimately very exciting, you just have to fight through all the "French-ness" to get to the exciting part. Seriously though, the game looks ace.
It's been years since we played Rayman
The original PlayStation title is one of our favourite platformers of all time, but Ubisoft's been keen to neglect the limbless protagonist in recent years. Thankfully, Rayman Origins sees the uber-french hero back at the forefront, and the game looks genuinely amazing to boot. Boasting a silky smooth art-style and some great co-operative mechanics, Rayman..
Ubisoft's limbless hero Rayman is about to get his first starring role in years, and fans in Europe will be able to celebrate the arrival of the uber-French protagonist by splashing out on a specially prepared Collector's Edition for Rayman Origins
The premium package bundles a 50-page artbook, original soundtrack and whimsical diorama-esque packaging. In short, it all looks like the business. The..
It's curious isn't it: you long for a good co-operative platformer and two come along at once
We've only just finished championing Sony and Insomniac's four-player opus Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, and now we're moving directly onto Rayman Origins. Ubisoft's delightfully French platformer series was iconic on the original PlayStation, but has...
We're not sure a game could possibly be more French than Rayman Origins
While the game's GamesCom trailer is surprisingly devoid of gameplay, the latest snippet — presumably taken from a cut-scene or intro movie — does focus on the game's humour, as Rayman and company concoct a surprisingly catchy melody in their sleep. The game's nothing if not charming. Check out the new trailer after the..

We recently got word that ex-PSN title Rayman Orgins had been upgraded to a full retail release
Now Amazon's revealed the game's place-holder boxart. And it's amazing. The online retailer is touting a release date of November 15th for the throwback platformer. We don't think there's any way such an unusual game will release slap-bang in the middle...
Rayman Origins made a huge splash when it was debuted as a PlayStation Network title at last year's E3, but since the game's promising announcement, Ubisoft has kept the Michael Ancel-developed platformer shrouded in mystery
Until today that is. According to GameInformer magazine [ via NeoGAF ], Origins is no longer a downloadable title and instead a full retail release. It will launch on..
