Borderlands 2

The Borderlands 2 PS Vita bundle will launch in North America on May 6, Sony Computer Entertainment announced.

The bundle contains the new slim model PS Vita, a downloadable copy of Borderlands 2, and an 8 gigabyte memory card for $199.

Otherwise, if you just want Borderlands 2, the game will be available at retail a week later on May 13.

Watch a new trailer below.

    Looks good to me. I’ll be buying it.

  • TheExile285

    Seems to run fine based on this trailer but something about it looks…. stiff

  • Kickersu18

    Any Infos for the European Market?

  • 罪罰

    And for those who just want the console?

    • Elvick

      Wait for a different bundle or stand alone release of the 2000. Or buy it and sell the Borderlands 2 code to someone.

    • TheExile285

      Buy it and don’t play Borderlands 2? Its $200 with an 8GB memory card. You aren’t gonna find many deals better before Christmas season unless you buy used.

  • Karysonson

    The fps looks kinda bad to me….

      Hopefully they’ll be able trim down the loading times and texture pop-in a little more before release.

      Other than that, it sounds pretty good.

      • Elvick

        I don’t mind texture pop-in the original Borderlands had that too, though it ‘faded’ in which I doubt the Vita will do with this one. (haven’t played 2 at all so don’t know if it also did that on PS3)

        I love that we’ll be able to completely remap the controls. Brilliant move

    • MrFinalgamer

      Damn! That’s an almost complete 180 in comparison to the last preview, my hype has begun! There’s so many Vita games coming out in Spring-Summer, why couldn’t we get all of these before!? O_O

      • Elvick

        I’m struggling to afford all these Vita games. Dx

    • Sevyne

      Looking mighty fine!

  • new_tradition

    Whoa, its coming out earlier than I expected O.O

  • [Guillem ]

    I’m a little scared about the differences between the ps3 and the vita version. I’m not sure If it’s only a texture downgrade or there will be some performance cuts like less enemies per stage or something, and the lack of clear gameplay scenes make me worry much more.

    • MrFinalgamer

      Performance wise, apparently it runs at a mostly stable 30 frames, with the ocassional dip to 28, and sometimes even 32. Best comparison would be FFX HD on vita.

      Also, they did say they cut of on the enemies a tad bit. An example given was that for every 12 enemies they caught off to like 10. Not that big of a loss IMO.

  • kurbstar2

    I’m fine with playing memelands on my PC. Will probably wait for a different bundle….one that doesn’t suck

  • Kurisu Makise

    If I wanted a 2K Vita I’d probably import so I can get the colours I want but I do want BL2 for sure. Looks good enough to have some fun.
