Well, you had to assume that some sacrifices would have to be made.
As Sony confirmed over at the PlayStation Blog , the upcoming PlayStation Vita iteration of Borderlands 2 will only support two players during co-op adventuring.
It seems the developers wanted to include four-player co-op but the decision was made late to scrap the idea:
"We checked in with the SCEA Third Party Production team, who confirmed that while they strived to include four-player co-op in the game, they made a decision late in their development cycle to focus on providing the best two-player-only co-op experience possible. As a result, the maximum co-operative player count for Borderlands 2 on PS Vita is capped at two."
Still, there are plenty of benefits to the Vita version: Saves are cross-compatible with the PS3 version of the game, no fewer than six DLC packs are coming packaged with the portable installment, and that online multiplayer – available to all – should still be quite riveting. Borderlands 2 is a helluva great game, after all.
The Borderlands 2 Vita bundle launches in just a few days, on May 6 .
