Gearbox: We'd Love To See Borderlands 2 On The Vita
Who wants cross-platform play between PS3 and Vita versions of Borderlands 2?
Well, the good news is that Gearbox Software CEO Randy Pitchford is definitely behind the idea. In speaking to Eurogamer, he said he'd "love" to see someone - an outside studio - create a handheld iteration that could correspond with the PS3 version of Borderlands 2.
"One of the things I wish Sony would do is get behind Borderlands, because I'd love to see a Vita version of the game. I want to be able to have the character I'm working on with my PS3, and then when I'm on the road with my Vita I can just keep developing that same character because it exists on the cloud somewhere."
As for why Gearbox can't do it themselves, the answer is simple: They're just far too busy with the console versions of the game in question. Pitchford did say "there are a lot of talented developers" who could take the team's code, source and content and make a top-notch Borderlands 2 for the Vita. Who's up for it out there?
Cross-platform play is one of the biggest selling points for Sony's nifty new portable, and to have such a hotly anticipated sequel take advantage of that feature...would be cool.
