Even C-3PO would be happy with this shiny box art.
I don't understand why the original borderlands isn't included.
Maybe they want to "Remaster" it with better textures/framerate and release it separately?
My guess by the title is that this is handsome jack collection and he wasn't on the first. We will probably se a borderlands collection down the road.
Because Borderlands 1 had barely any story. The Handsome Collection is about Handsome Jack's story and he was not in the first game.
let's be honest here, Borderlands doesn't garner most of it's acclaim for their stories to begin with. So that isn't a reason for it not to be included.
It doesn't matter if it doesn't get acclaim for the story. It's called the Handsome Collection because of who's story it is. Regardless of how deep or shallow it is. Just as simple as that. Maybe BL will release as a stand-alone digital game.
Economics. It was already economical to up the resolution and textures for a PS4/XBO port for the last two games. Borderlands being a much older game (possibly running on an older platform/engine that doesn't upgrade well to the PS4/XBO) just didn't justify spending the resources to port the game. I still plan on getting this myself as the only experience I have had with Borderlands is Borderlands 2 on my Vita, which is awkward for me to play because of the weird controller arrangements they had to do to get it running on the Vita. This will give me a chance to play Borderlands 2 (and the PreSequel) with a proper controller.
i still have faith that skyrim will make its way to new gen ..
