Borderlands Co-op Broken on PS3

Day one purchasers of Borderlands on PS3 were faced with an unpleasant surprise on Tuesday: the game's co-op mode is completely borked.

Update:

Update 2:
Fix’d! From the Gearbox Software Community:

Gearbox has worked very quickly with its partners to identify and resolve the issue users have been reporting with the PS3 version of Borderlands relating to friends lists on PSN

We are very pleased to report that using PSN friends lists with the game should now work properly for all PS3 customers. The fix has been released invisibly and should work automatically for all PSN users on the PS3 platform. No special action is required by PS3 customers to apply the fix – just play the game and you’ll find that everything works fine now. We thank you all for your patience and for making us aware of the issue!

like gay of war 2 Broken Co-op LOL.

Pennywise2444d ago

Except borderlands problem will be fixed.

nycredude2444d ago

This is bs. It is the same on 360. Gearbox arent't the best developers.

themyk2444d ago

lol.

whats wrong with it? good thing it's not the only good game to be released in six months on the ps3. so i'll wait till they fix it. and keep playing u2.

it does suck though.

I watched a friend play it on Xbox 360 and there was no issues.

Saaking2443d ago

This is not a PSN problem it's gearbox's lousy dev work.

The 360 didn't have the same issues? That's pretty stupid. Either learn how to do your job or don't multiplat.

Poor developers who won't shoot for excellence are the biggest pricks out there. They just want to snatch your hard earned money. Don't be a sucker fish. :/

HardcoreGamer2444d ago

this game is core coop play fun. for them not to get this right makes no sense why the would make a ps3 version in the first place.? as it will do them more hurt than good.

I WAS INTERESTED AND STILL AM but they need to get a patch sorted or something so we can fix them asap.

i want a coop rpg fix as soon as possible but still waiting on monster hunter.

give thema few days it may be something on their end that they forgot to do

hakis862444d ago

I don't care too much about.. but they BETTER NOT MESS UP AVP on any platform! Can't wait for that game..
(same dev, right? hehe)

Jamescagney2444d ago

Rebellion are doing AVP, it's still uncertain whether Gearboxs Aliens game will actually happen. I think a lot depends on Rebellions effort.

nycredude2444d ago

Can anyone who bought the Ps3 version confirm this? I don't trust this douche site since it was the one who summed up Uncharted as a QTE game.

Nihilism2444d ago

I think Gearbox should have spent a few more weeks testing, instead of bad mouthing other more successful devs.

JsonHenry2444d ago

I bought it for the 360, but I also want to get it on my PS3 so I can play with a few friends that only own a PS3. Hopefully this is fixed by the time I pick it up on the PS3.

leyego2444d ago

100% true.

happens to me, happens to my friend, happens to everyone i no who bought the game. its an EPIC FAIL on gear boxes part. co-op game that can't do co-op.

Mixmoff2444d ago (Edited 2444d ago )

Actually we disputed the QTE article and called Uncharted 2 "perfect".

So yeah, I'm sure we're making this up to show bias.

@disagree... Read the article in question.

Sadly. Me and my two roomies all got the game, we couldnt even get a LAN game going at first-- one roomie could see us we could not see him on our friends listing in game. My game appeared to freeze up once when i was attempting to access the online listings of games.

Hope they fix it soon-- if you like leveling, loot, adventure, its a fun fun game, reminds me kinda of a mix between Fallout 3 and WoW and Resistance 2.

add me on psn: sirsmokesalot69

-edit for updates i would go to the borderlands technical forums-- last night they were saying they were "looking into it" and maybe now they have figured it out. Lots of PO'ed players, as you can imagine. I was mostly dissapointed, its hard to get that upset with Demons Souls and UC2 on deck.

nycredude2444d ago

@Mixmoff

Sorry about the mix up... Honest mistake.

@bunbun777 and leyego

Thanks for the heads up. This is a bummer but I hope they fix it soon. Hey Bun i am going to add you.

@all who care

My PSN: NYCREDUDE add me if you want.

WildArmed2444d ago

Thats just sad.
I guess its a good reason for me to pick up NGS2 instead of Borderlands then.
Will pick this up after Brutal Legend.. dont want any chances of that not being patched

Darkstorn2444d ago

The problem was enough for GameSpot to give the PS3 version an 8.0 while the 360 got an 8.5. Time to compare Metacritic scores! (hopefully they'll fix it before the weekend).

djfullshred2444d ago

zlatko - after reading the article, the developer stated they throughly tested this in their test environment, but unfortunately found an issue that could not be reproduced in their test lab.

You really think they are not doing their jobs? Almost every piece of complicated software needs updates after being released. Labs constantly need to be updated to match the real world, but usually this is not known to be needed until after a real world problem is uncovered. It is the nature of the technology business.

otherZinc2444d ago

I knew this would happen when Killzone 2 omitted co-op through the campaign, same with Infinity Ward, the graphics would suffer if they did have co-op through the campaign. All I received was ton of hate, now you have proof.

I'm not talking about co-op side missions to trick the public, Liars like Infinity Ward saying: "adding co-op through the campaign would compromise the single player story"? *******T! Infinity Ward no one knows the characters in your friggin story from MW1, so stfu!

No campaign co-op is an excuse to hide the fact that operating with un-unified RAM on the PS3 is a friggin problem: Say it Developers!

You dont see Halo 3 with that problem, the RAM is unified, a dev needs to create multiple scenarios for each co-op character, that's a problem for SONY's PS3!

Proof, where are the co-op campaigns on the PS3?

Real Gambler2443d ago

Don't even need to install a patch... I would say quick and easy fix!

"Gearbox's Steve Gibson sends along word that the dev has already fixed the problem. "We are very pleased to report that using PSN friends lists with the game should now work properly for all PS3 customers. The fix has been released invisibly and should work automatically for all PSN users on the PS3 platform. No special action is required by PS3 customers to apply the fix - just play the game and you'll find that everything works fine now.

That's a shame I was looking forward to getting this on friday!
Oh well I spose it will save me some money.

Rockstar2444d ago

I bought this game yesterday in hopes of playing co-op tonight with friends...

What about the LAN party option, does it work?

bunbun7772444d ago

We got our LAN to work last night --3 players in house. Should be working for everyone I hope.

Rockstar2443d ago

have some bubbles.

Also, was playing this game single player earlier today and I noticed a friend was also playing. I decided to invite him into my game and it went off without a hitch.

Maybe this problem is for some and not others?

koehler832444d ago

Glad I won't be putting this in my PS3 until Christmas or later. I'm sure it will be worked out by then.
