Gearbox's Pitchford: Borderlands 2 comparable to Diablo 3

Gearbox boss Randy Pitchford is claiming that Borderlands 2 compares favorably to Diablo III, sharing the latter's classes, complexity, loot drops and action.

According to Pitchford, he's a Mage in Diablo III but is "definitely going to also play as a Barbarian". He wants to "chop dudes up with melee weapons instead of casting fireballs." (Borderlands 2, Diablo III, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

A Diablo styled FPS game is genius, I'm sure developers actually have thought of it but said. "Naww, that'll never sale."

Don't even compare them. Borderlands 2 will be 50X better then Diablo 3.

agreed, I have high hopes for B2...so let's not compare it to that POS Diablo 3.

Drawing parallels between Borderlands 2 and Diablo III made me throw up in my mouth just a tiny bit.

Diablo 3 wasn't that good, Borderlands 2 would beat it 10 out of 10 times.

"Pitchford went on to broadly hint that the Mechromancer wasn't the last downloadable class, either, and that even more DLC will be coming to Borderlands 2 than there was in the original."

Wait, WHAT?! Pitchford, you awesome bastard!!
