If you have to delay a game, that video is a perfect example of how to spin it at least a little bit in your favour. 

Posted by Binny

It's not April 1st yet?

Posted by CaLe

I think he knew about the delay and this was just a fake video to make it seem like he really thought it was coming out in May. If you look closely at his eyes when he finds out the news and listen carefully to the tone of his voice, you can work out that he knew already. THIS VIDEO IS FAKE FAKE FAKE and he's BAD ACTOR I HATE HIM.

My favorite part is where the team tries to use humor to make people laugh and forget about the announcement's true motive: "Fuck the consumer"!

I don't know if you're joking or just dumb. Funny how that seems to happen so much on the internet.

Agreed. I was pretty angry about the DUke delay, but so long as even Pitchford can admit that it's ridiculous and unfair, I can accept it.

Very funny.  Randy seems like a great guy.

 I hope that you are kidding.

... So what's all this talk about Duke actually coming out? I have my doubts again.

Wut? I'm pretty sure Gearbox is just as upset about the delay. If they wanted to "Fuck the consumer" they would have never picked up DNF to begin with.

I wonder if they delayed it on purpose?

Posted by Daftasabat

marketing ploy?

Posted by Mr_Skeleton

This would have been funny if it wasn't so sad.

Posted by UnsolvedParadox

Haha, cheers Randy!

" Push it back to July 4th. Can't think of a better day for Duke's arrival than the most American day of any day. "
I second this.  
 
Also, they should just announce a sequel to DNF Square Enix style before the game comes out and never release that game just for shits and giggles.

Duke never comes early. This whole video was beautiful.

We get it first!

Yeah, everyone knows that. That's not the point. The very existence of this video was to let us know about the delay. He wouldn't have been recording a video in the first place if there wasn't a delay.

This is the best marketing campaign EVER! XD

Posted by ajamafalous

Duke never premature ejaculates.

Posted by SaturdayNightSpecials

Yeah, that was sort of clever. 
 
I hope no one is stupid enough to think they didn't anticipate this, though. They had this all planned out in case they needed to delay the game, and they're just going through the motions because they know everyone has one last chuckle left in them for that joke, and they're going to take advantage of it.

Posted by patrick5152003

why would this game even come out since crysis 2 is out?

Posted by ICE_Trey

I fudging called it.

Posted by MustardDragon

....seriously?....

Posted by kagekage

Damn you Randy Pitchford... You escape this time...

Posted by Toxin066

Best delay ever? Best delay ever.

Posted by RazielCuts

That was the only way they could of handled it. 

Posted by mewarmo990

I don't even care that he hammed the whole reaction. "DUKE NEVER COMES EARLY" made it all worth it.
 
Though, makes me wonder if they actually delayed it on purpose, as a PR stunt.

Posted by Demon_Sandwich

wasnt it brad or vinny who said they should delay the game just for the lolz on the bombcast. thanks gearbox for the lolz and the duke.  i can wait. i needed the delay. Portal 2 and MK come a week or two earlier

Posted by Crixaliz

April 1st they announce that they will make the original release date

brilliant!
Posted by re4ctor

Hah, that was great.  
 
Honestly, at this point, I've waited 15 years, I can wait another 6 weeks. I'd rather have it polished than buggy.

Posted by Ender_Obitus

Is it odd to anyone else that we keep calling it DNF (Did not finish?)

Posted by bybeach

I take it back. Gave the video a chance, and it's funny enough. Guys on TNT today were saying they firmly believe it's not marketing, so cool. 
 
Last guy to know...get in line Mr. Pitchford!
Posted by natetodamax

Now THAT'S how you delay a game.

Ha, I bet no one saw this coming. 

Posted by TooWalrus

It sucks that it's been delayed again, but the phrase "Duke never comes early" was worth it.

Posted by selbie

Duke must have the worst blueballs ever if it's been over 12 years since he last came.

Posted by Twiggy199

They called it on the giant bombcast a few weeks ago, they should've put a bet on it. 
 
Lol at the delay!
