Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software, has commented on the fact that the developer is charging for the upcoming level-cap increase releasing for “Borderlands 2” next week. The DLC which will increase the game’s current level-cap from 50 to 61 will cost $4.99 on the Playstation Network and 400 Microsoft Points via Xbox Live. Pitchford reassures fans that the $5 price for this DLC isn’t arbitrary and is a result of thousands of hours the team took developing the level-cap increase alongside a third playthrough of the game. Randy Pitchford stated, "It's just $5 for 1000's of hours of work in design, engineering and balancing. If it is not worth it to you, it is elective."
