Randy Pitchford: More people are playing Borderlands 2 "even than when we launched the game"

It's no secret that Borderlands 2 is still very popular despite being an entire year old. In video game years, that's usually old enough to be drawing a pension and settling down at the Old Games Home. However, Gearbox's CEO has this week claimed that the title bucks that trend to the point where more people are playing now than ever before. (Borderlands 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I wasn't particularly interested in BD 2, but now it's coming out for vita I'm going to get it, haha

There's probably more people on Borderlands 2 because they all traded in Aliens for it lol

I would put money on him saying they do!

In fact I would imagine his response would probably be "More people are currently playing ACM than COD & BF3 combined".

If his lips are moving, you know what they say.

In the words of my favorite game tyrant... "Assuming direct control"

Harbinger was awesome in ME2, I don't know why he was hardly even in ME3. It doesn't make much sense because he was one of the main villains of ME2.

...(spoiler alert)because he died in the end of the game(ME2).
porkChop  +   751d ago
No he didn't -_- he said "releasing control". That body wasn't Harbinger.

Not surprising given the huge sales this game has gotten in the past week.

More utter bollox spoken from the king of bullshit himself!

Well done sir, I tip my imaginary hat to you!

Yeah you milk that of a game for all it's worth Mr.R "Douche" Pitchford because it's all you've got to hype up as literally EVERYTHING else you guys touch or make is utter shit. Of course MORE people are going to buy it when you drastically slash the price as ANY game would...big deal. I guess a price drop becomes necessary to recoup some of their losses after screwing gamers with Duke and ACM and.... shit, I could go on all day listing all the sub par garbage these guys shove out to market. Im utterly baffled that people still support these 'one trick pony' idiots. I am excited to see just how badly they butcher "homeworld" now that they have the license. (shudder)
I still wont, now or ever, give you one red penny you dickhole and I'd love to see you on a park bench together with Sergei Titov, both with your 40s in crumpled brown bags, crap in you pants, picking butts and bumming change. I can't stand this smug unscrupulous twat. Gamers so readily forget, and for whatever reason, continue to support assholes like this. Make a stand for once in your lives and just stop.

They cant do anything more"a new IP??"that actually appeal gamers so the best they have is milking this game to death with dlc...its obvious that Gearbox has a dev team is crap,they had the luck of making one IP that gamers actually took notice BL and thats it.They are more in the business of ruin gaming IPS than building them!

Sure! They will do something new when they come across someone else's art/ ideas that they can quietly rip off and not give credit where credit is due. BL was ripped off DIRECTLY from a jap anime. These fuck-tards are worthless hacks who couldnt come up with a novel idea by themselves even if their lives depended on it. I'd love to see them sink hard. It's infuriating to see them dupe consumers out of their hard earned cash over and over and over again.
Pitchford is the epitome of a piece of shit.
