Randy Pitchford claims they once discussed selling Borderlands 2 golden keys for real money

Any “Borderlands 2” fan knows that Gearbox Software regularly hands out SHiFT Codes for golden keys inside the popular co-op shooter. According to a comment by Randy Pitchford, the Gearbox Software President revealed that the developer has discussed the idea of selling golden keys for real money in the past. Pitchford is clearly against the idea of monetizing loot inside “Borderlands 2” as he stated, “I’m not sure I’m ready to cross that line.”

The story is too old to be commented.

You know what I'd love for them to discuss? How about the major frame rate issue plaguing most Nividia players? If my laptop ran this game at a solid 60fps for the entirety of the main game, the dlcs and patches shouldn't ever cause it to hit below 10fps. That's just stupid.

I just don't think Randy, and Co, should be trusted with any sum of money.

I'm shocked Sega haven't asked them.."Where'd the cash go?"

They have..but behind close doors

And I imagine that idea would've been met with a big "f**k you Randy" from gamers...

I'm surprised that they sold the game for real money with all the bugs it has.

oh shush, its a very fun game. im tired of all the gearbox hate because of A:CM. that crappy game doesnt suddenly make borderlands 2 awefull

shysun1900d ago

It's one of the best games I've played in years!

Huh? Nothing unusual, and nothing game breaking. I don't know what you are getting on with, but I'm guessing it's the gearbox hate train because A:CM sucked.

MilkMan1900d ago

yeah, it seems like it was designed for that. Glad they didn't do it.
