Borderlands 2 on the PS Vita? Gearbox's Randy Pitchford Wants Someone to Make it Happen

Wouldn't it be nice to continue your PlayStation 3 playthrough of Borderlands 2 on your PlayStation Vita whenever you are away from home? Gearbox president Randy Pitchford thinks so, but the only problem is the studio is too busy working on the PC, PS3, and 360 versions of the game. Pitchford would like an outside developer to make Borderlands 2 for the PS Vita and for Sony to get behind the franchise in general. He loves the cloud connectivity offered by the PS3 and PS Vita and hopes Sony can be given the proper push to make a Vita version of the upcoming shooter a reality. Pitchford says the idea is possible from a technological standpoint, just it needs the support to become a reality. He calls on gamers to get Sony interested in the idea because, while Gearbox is busy, Pitchford knows other developers could have an easy time making a PS Vita port of Borderlands 2. It would certainly be a welcome option for PS3/Vita gamers if it does happen.

Even though I will be getting the PC version of BL2, this is still pretty cool if it happens, if for no other reason than possibly influencing other developers to do the same for their future games. I think Cross-Play is definitely one of the most appealing features for current PS3 owners dabbling with the idea of picking up a Vita, so if more games offer that opportunity, it can be a big boon to Sony.
