Bioshock Infinite gets delayed until March 26th

Originally, Bioshock Infinite was set to release October 16th of 2012. Unfortunately for fans, it was not ready for E3 and launch was delayed until February 26th, 2013. Now however, it appears gamers will be disappointed by a 2nd delay. This delay is meant to add more benefit to the game in the long run, according to Rod Fergusson, who recently departed from Epic Games Studios to join the Irrational Games staff.

A suggestion to the staff from Rod about delaying the game 3-4 weeks was heeded, and will now undergo a rigorous polishing effort to have it ready for March, Ken Levine announced at a press conference.
“When Rod Fergusson came on board we looked at the game. He was there for about a month and he said, ‘look, I’ve been looking at the schedule and looking at the game and frankly you could really benefit from another three or four more weeks for polish and bug fixing.’
“We talked about it. I knew I’d probably get beat up in the press a little bit about it. But at the end of the day, if it’s going to make a better game we’re going to do it.
“So the new date is March 26. That’s my bad news.”
So fans, what impact do you think this might have on the game's launch? Hurt sales? Help sales? How will it affect your purchase?
