As someone that is currently hyped as fuck for a port of Borderlands 2, it seems weird to see people crushed over a six month delay. If the games good, it'll still be good in six months.
Funnily enough, a Fall 2014 release date would help the Wii U drought in between Mario Kart and Smash. Whether it'll actually ever get released is the problem. I have no problem buying the superior (gameplay) version of it on Wii U for full price.
Edit: The quote seems to suggest it could possibly be an eShop only release? I don't know, but I do hope it does get released in some form, maybe as a Director's Cut like Deus Ex.
