    No idea why they don't bring it to the Wii U. It's on the Vita, so power shouldn't be a reason, and it's not like the Wii has a lot of FPS RPG's.

    Seems like Nintendo pretty much gave up on the console if they are digging everything up for the NX.

    Definitely don't see nothing wrong here.

    But why? Everybody who wants the collection will have already played the games to death elsewhere assuming they would never come to a Nintendo console. I mean, Borderlands 2 was on the PS3, PS4, 360, One, Vita, and PC while the Pre-Sequel was on PS3, PS4, 360, One, and PC.

    Regardless, a picture like that would be so easy to fake, it's ridiculous. I wouldn't put much faith in this being legitimate.

    Not much faith in this... but I hope so, it will give me an excuse to finally get around to playing it.

    Seems 100% legit. Totally could not be made by anyone with a google mail account and 3 minutes of photoshop

    So they have an excuse to say their games don't sell on Nintendo consoles and ditch it? :P

    By this point, after so many Steam sales and seeing the game available for cheap second hand for the 360/PS3, it feels like Gearbox wants to sell the Borderlands game AGAIN for full price this time on a new Nintendo console.

    I used to think it would be exciting to see PS3/360 games being ported to the Wii U until I realised that NOBODY would go out to buy a new console to replay old games that are already available on cheaper consoles. Games like these are just a way to pad out a library for a new console until it finally finds its stride.

    Hasn't anyone ever heard of a multiplat? Every console has them when it comes out.

    Why waste your time doing shit like that?

    Also things are lined up a bit too carefully to make it seem shopped.

    Looks like a screenshot of someone's Outlook if you ask me.
    Watch some intern get let go in the next few days.

    My bet is Gearbox wants to sell the game at full price again, as Harsky stated.

    Why waste time trolling random people on the internet? For shits and giggles, of course. There's more than enough people who would do something like that. Also there's no need to photoshop, you can craft an email, send it to yourself and screenshot it.

    I'm sure the NX will have a much better luck in success for having a new IP rather than ports of old multiplatform games especially the famous ones... unless of course if it's FFVII. haha j/k

    Good point. But you would still need to somehow ensure that @gearbox is there.
    And they are greedy enough to do shit like that.
    This is the company that illegally funneled money from Duke and Aliens into Borderlands.

    I think I heard a rumour that the wiiu will be getting straight ports of madden 07, simpsons hit and run, shadow the hedgehog and finding nemo: the video game.

    Personally I can't wait, I'll finally have the chance to play these games for the first time!
