The PS Vita has been on sale in the United States and across Europe for almost 7 months now, and I feel it’s still lacking a great selection of titles. I’m a huge fan of first-person shooters, and as things stand, the only game available in that genre is Resistance: Burning Skies, which is… okay — if you don’t like online multiplayer gaming.
But of course, Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified is coming in November, and there may also be another big-name FPS game on the way, in the form of Borderlands 2.
The title is coming to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC later this month, and there’s a chance that later on, it will also come to the PS Vita. Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford has revealed that he is set to meet with Sony to discuss the matter soon. But there is a catch.
“We can’t do it ourselves,” Pitchford told IGN. “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.”
It certainly seems Gearbox and Sony are thinking about bringing Borderlands 2 to the PS Vita, then. The sooner the two companies find a studio that can make that happen, the better, in my opinion.
If it does happen, Pitchford hinted at the possibility of being able to save your Borderlands 2 progress in the cloud, so that you can sync the game between PlayStation 3 and PS Vita.
