Ubisoft launches Rayman Raving Rabbids(TM) Hall of Fame feature on raymanzone.com

SAN FRANCISCO – December 5, 2006 – Today Ubisoft, one of the world's largest video game publishers announced the launch of the Rayman Raving Rabbids(TM) Hall of Fame. Accessible through the official website, Raymanzone (www.raymanzone.com), this new interactive web-based feature consists of various leader boards based on the players' performances. All game scores can be found classified on a worldwide, national basis, for all mini-games (over 120 challenges), or per platform... This is where you'll see if you can hold the world record for total distance you can throw a cow…seriously!

How does it work?

Any time you play a party game in the Score Attack mode, you receive an Internet Code. This code can be entered on www.raymanzone.com (ubi.com account is mandatory) to take part in the hall of fame. Of course, you can always improve your score and submit new Internet Codes. Each Internet Code is unique, as it is based on your actual performance in the game.

Extra features

Players will be able to compare their global ranking or latest scores with other players across the planet and forward them over to their friends. They will also be able to check out their friends' scores and decide if they want to beat them all!

For more information about Rayman Raving Rabbids(TM), please visit www.raymanzone.com.

Lame. How hard would it be Ubisoft, how hard would it be?

I think the blame can be placed on Nintendo's shoulders, honestly - no online games are planned until early next year, and only Elebits has WiiConnect24 features. They just didn't make online features a priority at launch. Plus the system doesn't have built in leaderboards like Xbox Live.

The WiiC24 kits, from what I understand, weren't even sent by Nintendo until far too late in the development cycle for any 3rd party game to go online (no first party games even made it).

Aside from Nintendo being way too late in shipping 3rd parties both Wii dev kits and online kits, they've done a decent job aiding 3rd parties in developing software for the Wii.

Does this work for the PS2 version, too? That might explain why it can't be done over Wii online.
