Borderlands 2 Could Be Ported to PS Vita With Sony's Help, Says Randy Pitchford
Gearbox would like to see Borderlands 2 on the Vita, but it could only happen with Sony's help.
Gearbox has long since hinted at the possibility of the release of Borderlands 2 on Sony’s PlayStation Vita.
Speaking in a new interview with IGN, Randy Pitchford said today that he plans to meet with Sony to discuss the possibility of a port for the handheld device. The port, he said, would require some assistance on Sony’s end, and that the ball is in their court.
“We can’t do it ourselves,” said Pitchford of porting Borderlands 2 to the Vita. "If some other studio was capable and could be trusted by us, and by a publishing partner, and by Sony, and someone wanted to invest in making that happen? I think Sony should step up and make that happen."
“I don’t think it would cost a lot, relatively speaking. And I know there’s a lot of talented people that have learned how to use the Vita that could do a great job at that. If that machine started to align itself, I wouldn’t be the holdup—I would actually be an enabler.”
Pitchford expressed his excitement at the possibility of being able to play Borderlands 2 across platforms, calling it his “dream scenario” to be able to play the game on both his PS3 and his Vita.
“Imagine if you could be playing the game on your PS3 and then I have to go on a roadtrip or I have to go to work or something, and when I take my Vita with me, I have my save—I have access to the same cloud save and can continue my character. Can you imagine how amazing that would be?”
