Gearbox's hybrid RPG-shooter is making a portable appearance on the PlayStation Vita, Sony announced today at their GamesCom conference.
this will be awesome!!!
I did not see that one coming, great news
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.
no one saw it coming
@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.
speechless? My mouth fell off my face on to the floor.
Damn, gonna have to buy me a vita now, the wife's gonna kill me!
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.
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 :)
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
This was such an overlooked piece of great news.
I might actually use my PS Vita now. Borderlands 2 on the go? Definitely worth it and something we sorely need for portable gaming.
I agree...IF ported properly. If it's some experimental port like the Jak Collection I am going to avoid it.
Yay more ports
Yeah I know! Great to be able to play an amazing game like borderlands 2 on the go with the vita.
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. ^_^
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.
*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.
Look at the disagree lol
More games = a bad thing now? They've already announced 2 new IPs for Vita.
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.
@sobotz Leave N4G.
LOL Why are you so mad bro? TGS ahead. MS another no-show.
@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.
a little jelly for your 3DS?
Mindblown. Perfect combo with the price cut. Go on Sony !!
I think everyone's mindblew on this announcement. Who saw this coming? Sony is full of surprises .
This is awesome, what a great game to bring to PS Vita
That's freaking awesome!
and Vita price drop along with price drop for memory cards, sony for ultimate Vita win now show us bioshock for Vita lol
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. Motorola RAZR i
Really don't care. I don't want the vita to be a port machine.
such a negative guy...well enjoy tearaway, kz merc, batman blacklight, ect.
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.
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?
fez= bl2 ......my vita is speechless.
AWESOME, can't wait, beat it again and have fun with my friends.
Yes, one of my favorite games of 2012 on the go. Can't wait!
Never would have guessed but hopefully it is a good port and not a crappy port with content cut out because of limitations.
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.
Please sell it and stop posting on PS Vita articles.
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.
I never played borderlands 2. Only the original. Now I get to play it on the go. Why are you dissapointed.
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.
Expect the unexpected!!
200 dollar price tag memory card prices drop now this if they announce monster hunter vita will be flying like hot pockets out of microwave
You'll have to wait till TGS on that one.
The game i bought my vita for!
I like how he mentioned it like it was no big deal Haha. I am very hyped to play this on the go
Good thing all my friends have Vita's /s
No thanks, I already bought it for the PC and im not paying it again for it. Im sick of ports.
Ps3 and PC version here and soon to be an owner of the vita version.
Will get borderlands 2 if there's ad hoc and not just online. Catch a riiiiiide :D
now i can finally play this great game ^_^
Ho Lee Sh*T! WOW!
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!
Pretty solid for Vita owners.
Really? It was crap, just more Ports and indies, Borderlands is the only decent thing shown...
well gotta take what u can get really.
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.
THis is awesome. i will buy it for vita
This is the love the vita has been waiting for! more big titles!!
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.
