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 .
