Randy Pitchford told the public today, at the indie games festival "Rezzed" today, that he’d really love for a cloud-connected, Vita-version of Borderlands 2 that could work with the PlayStation 3 version of the game, but that the developer is a bit too busy right now to make it happen.
“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.
Technologically, that’s possible.”
Pitchford then asked fans to reach out and try get Sony to making it happen:
“Perhaps some of you folks can convince Sony to start that. We’re too busy to develop it ourselves. But I know there are a lot of talented developers who could take our code, our source and our content and perhaps create something like that.
That would be exciting to me.”
So, you heard him! Reach out to Sony! Personally, we think that a portable Borderlands would be fantastic. It would open the gates to the Vita and boost sales, and it would certainly get a lot more people interested. It's win/win for Sony and Gearbox. C'mon Sony, do it!
