Borderlands PS3 Patch Fixes Major Friends List Problem
While entertaining, Borderlands has its fair share of problems. However, Gearbox said immediately after the game released that they were aware of some of the PS3 issues and planned to address them.
They've done just that with a patch that is now available for the PS3 version. One of the biggest problems revolved around the Friends list on the PSN and with this new invisible update, we shouldn't have to worry now; it has been fixed "with no need to fiddle with anything." Gearbox still says they will continue to "support all platforms as issues crop up" and that support will undoubtedly include some downloadable content, which is on the way. They've already announced that the first batch should drop later this year, but above all else, PS3 owners want to have the same experience 360 owners have, which can sometimes be difficult (depending on the developer). For the record, Arnold had other issues with the game that don't center on the Friends list problem, so this fix-it patch doesn't magically bump up the overall score by half a point or something. I will be doing a second opinion review of sorts some time this week, simply due to the amount of controversy surrounding Borderlands (it seems to be everywhere around the Internet).
But anyway, at least this patch came out early enough so if you haven't picked up the game just yet, you have less reason to worry if you want it for your PS3.
