Borderlands 2 On PS Vita Finally Adds Cross-Save Feature With PS3

May 19, 2014 - By Jan Rainey

In what many expected to be a feature from the May 6th launch, Gearbox Software have finally announced cross-save functionality between the PS3 and PS Vita versions of Borderlands 2.

This means that if you progress through the game on the handheld device, you can carry on from that save on the PS3 platform.

Known as a loot and shoot, the Vita version of Borderlands 2 was a joint creation of Sony, 2K, and Iron Galaxy studios. It features much of the same content as the PC and console versions, but the online multiplayer mode is restricted to just two players.

Though there are some gameplay issues with the port, such as occasional framerate problems and a bit of an aiming lag when lots of characters are on the screen at once, aiming with Vita’s gyroscope itself is a worthwhile effect.

DLC packs include the Psycho and Mechromancer classes, Mr. Torgues Campaign of Carnage, Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate’s Booty, as well as the Ultimate Vault Hunter’s Upgrade.

The title is available on multiple systems: The PC and Mac, PlayStation 3 and Vita, and the Xbox 360.

It hasn’t all been fun gaming however on the Xbox version. Players operating prohibited modified consoles were able to use a trainer program that allowed them to permanently kill other online players. What’s more is the code infected all who had played against the offenders previously, meaning it spread like a virus and caused even innocent people to get banned.
