I did not see that one coming, great news
guitarded77  +   239d ago
2K showing the love. Maybe Bioshock will come to Vita after all.

@Heavy

Greg Miller has been saying it for a while now.

@xHeavYx

It has actually been rumored for a while.
black0o  +   239d ago
no one saw it coming
KingKevo  +   239d ago
@xHeavYx: You sum it up pretty well. I was having one of these rare 'OMG REALLY?!' moments.

After all people might argue that it's just a port, but imho this is great news and it makes perfect sense to me, because the game really fits the Vita with drop in drop out MP and short missions/battles.

These are the kinds of releases that the Vita needs for it revival to happen.
legionsoup  +   239d ago
WOW...speechless...
JoGam  +   239d ago
speechless? My mouth fell off my face on to the floor.
CRAIG667  +   239d ago
Damn, gonna have to buy me a vita now, the wife's gonna kill me!
GdaTyler  +   239d ago
Lol, let her kill you. You will not regret your purchase, I sure as hell did not. I have a massive backlog of games and I still have games like Gravity Rush and others to get.
dredgewalker  +   239d ago
But how will he play if he's dead? Better yet he should buy a Vita and fake his death so his wife won't kill him. Also by faking his death maybe he can get some insurance money to buy more games :)
zippycup  +   238d ago
im going to have to buy another one my daughter plays gravity rush on mine and when i told her B2 was coming out for vita she told me i would never see the vita again

shes 10 and she loves borderlands hehe

when i got tiny tina dlc we finished it in a weekend
dendenmooshi  +   239d ago
This was such an overlooked piece of great news.
cgoodno  +   239d ago
I might actually use my PS Vita now. Borderlands 2 on the go? Definitely worth it and something we sorely need for portable gaming.
miyamoto  +   238d ago
definitely agree!
SonyPS4  +   239d ago
I agree...IF ported properly. If it's some experimental port like the Jak Collection I am going to avoid it.
sobotz  +   239d ago
Yay more ports
Williamson  +   239d ago
Yeah I know! Great to be able to play an amazing game like borderlands 2 on the go with the vita.
jujubee88  +   239d ago
Why so bitter @sobotz? It's just a great game coming to a platform that is made for playing FPS like BD2.

Maybe you need to buy a VITA and check it out. The audience totally dig that announcement. And people here are totally digging the announcement.

Hope you have a change of heart. It would be a shame if you missed out on playing this game on VITA while the rest of us have fun. ^_^
mandf  +   239d ago
port or not. it's still a major game added to the vitas library of games. ports aren't bad beacause it expands a games user base and profits. downplaying something is childish.
Xof  +   239d ago
*shrug*

Not sure I agree. I don't think the number of people who would buy Borderlands 2 on the Vita is all that big, considering most people who would care to play BL2 already have... on PS3, 360 or PC.

Look at the WiiU for (many) similar cases of older games getting ports. There, at least, you can assume that a good portion of sales were from gamers who only had a Wii, and never had the chance to play Mass Effect 3 (ulgh) or Assassin's Creed 3, or Arkham City, or what have. But now? Just how many Vita gamers game ONLY on the Vita?

The Vita needs actual Vita games. Not ports of PS3 or PC games.

The reason we're seeing a port of BL2 rather than a new BL game for the Vita is because the Vita is a struggling console, and ports are infinitely cheaper to produce. So, rather than being a positive sign for the Vita, the fact that all we're getting is another port (that the fanboys are celebrating, of course) is really just another sign that Vita owners should be concerned about the future.

Leave this place of excitement, you have no place here!

Shows that Vita's getting games, go play your Xbox.

Enemy  +   239d ago
More games = a bad thing now? They've already announced 2 new IPs for Vita.
admiralvic  +   239d ago
It's not a bad things, just that some people would rather see more Vita exclusives / sequels. I can't say I blame them, since I got my fill on the PS3, but still a solid choice.
Protagonist  +   239d ago
@sobotz

Leave N4G.
HammadTheBeast  +   239d ago
LOL

Why are you so mad bro? TGS ahead. MS another no-show.
Master-H  +   239d ago
@juju i'm afraid sobotz can't buy a vita and enjoy this game, after all where will he charge the Vita, in his cave he doesn't have power sockets, he only goes to town for like half an hour to use a Cafe net and bless us with some of his helpful comments, ah the hard life of a N4G troll.
miyamoto  +   238d ago
a little jelly for your 3DS?
ShugaCane  +   239d ago
Mindblown. Perfect combo with the price cut. Go on Sony !!
Killzoner99  +   239d ago
I think everyone's mindblew on this announcement. Who saw this coming? Sony is full of surprises .
Relientk77  +   239d ago
This is awesome, what a great game to bring to PS Vita
Timesplitter14  +   239d ago
I'm impressed
Snookies12  +   239d ago
That's freaking awesome!
showtimefolks  +   239d ago

I already have the game on the PS3 but this is fantastic news.

Anyways I'm not that surprised because Gearbox was talking about bringing the game to the Vita a while back.

4logpc  +   239d ago
Really don't care.

I don't want the vita to be a port machine.
Kingthrash360  +   239d ago
such a negative guy...well enjoy tearaway, kz merc, batman blacklight, ect.
4logpc  +   239d ago
I didn't say anything about any of those titles.

I just find it odd to port a year old game to a system very few have bought.
Protagonist  +   239d ago
Then go buy the mentioned new IP´s for the Vita! and let others enjoy Borderlands 2 on the PS Vita.

I did not get it before, but now I might.

What is the problem?
Kingthrash360  +   239d ago
fez= bl2 ......my vita is speechless.
akaFullMetal  +   239d ago
AWESOME, can't wait, beat it again and have fun with my friends.
CaptainPunch  +   239d ago
Yes, one of my favorite games of 2012 on the go. Can't wait!
Rivitur  +   239d ago
Never would have guessed but hopefully it is a good port and not a crappy port with content cut out because of limitations.
bothebo  +   239d ago
What a joke of a conference for the Vita, for people who already own Vita owners we only got one game, WHICH I'VE ALREADY PLAYED. We had more indie shit shoved down our throat, I'm so close to selling everything I have ever bought from Sony. I could not be more disappointed.
Protagonist  +   239d ago
Please sell it and stop posting on PS Vita articles.
bothebo  +   239d ago
That's funny because all you've done on this page is troll other people. Let me help you bend over for Sony some more.
dcj0524  +   239d ago
I never played borderlands 2. Only the original. Now I get to play it on the go. Why are you dissapointed.
spok22  +   239d ago
Completely agree. But hopefully these announcements, the price cut and borderlands 2, will encourage more people to purchase a vita and help bring back the excitement along with more support from (non-indie) devs.

You'll have to wait till TGS on that one.

The game i bought my vita for!
PersonaCat  +   239d ago
I like how he mentioned it like it was no big deal Haha. I am very hyped to play this on the go

No thanks, I already bought it for the PC and im not paying it again for it. Im sick of ports.
MonChiChi  +   239d ago
Ps3 and PC version here and soon to be an owner of the vita version.
erikthegman  +   239d ago
Will get borderlands 2 if there's ad hoc and not just online. Catch a riiiiiide :D
sherimae2413  +   239d ago
now i can finally play this great game ^_^
radecGaming  +   239d ago
Ho Lee Sh*T! WOW!
Caveat_emptor89  +   239d ago
Awesome! I've heard so many good things about bl2 for someone who missed out on this game last year I will definitely be getting it for my vita!
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   239d ago
Pretty solid for Vita owners.
xYakuzaz  +   239d ago
Really? It was crap, just more Ports and indies, Borderlands is the only decent thing shown...
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   239d ago
well gotta take what u can get really.
fsfsxii  +   239d ago
You people are frikkin pathetic.
You bitch about no games, while the vita has games, its just most of them are niche. Complain about AAA titles, you get a port and you still complain. The fact that you can play that game on a handheld is amazing. So please, people, get your facts right and stop moaning.
yeahokchief  +   239d ago
THis is awesome. i will buy it for vita
MonChiChi  +   239d ago
This is the love the vita has been waiting for! more big titles!!
J@D  +   239d ago
My Mechromancer is ready... hopefully PS3 character are cross-over between Ps3<<=>>Vita. But that will be kinda impossible since it would break the game to a certain point especially for trophies purpose on the Vita version.

Great news either way.
Tetsujin  +   238d ago
I checked the article, there's no mention of Mecromancer or Psycho, so I'm unsure if they will be available out the gate; I hope so however I'll wait for confirmation before going further.
vickers500  +   239d ago
Hopefully they make the game saves cross-compatible so I can bring all my characters from my ps3 version to the vita version.
