We’re celebrating Dyad launch week here at PlayStation.Blog, so we welcome the game’s creator Shawn McGrath into Sid‘s vacant, but still warm chair. Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford talks Borderlands 2 in an interview, and details the improvements that PS3 owners will notice in the sequel. And I catch up with Kadeem Hardison, who at San Diego Comic-Con was unveiled to join Ellen Page as a character in BEYOND: Two Souls. He was in A Different World!

As you’ve come to expect, we’ll reveal next week’s PSN new releases, share PlayStation user tips, and answer your player queries. Anybody got a Dark Knight Rises ticket you’re not using?

    I don’t normally listen but I saw Borderlands 2 so I’m in.

    Can you tell me if Borderlands 2 will be released on PSN at launch and if so if it will include access to the premier club?
    I own the first on PSN and like the idea of adding this to my digital library but won’t give up being able to play this day one if it’s not coming so I want to know so i can preorder it if not. Thanks

      Yep, anyone whose letter or tip (or mystery theme winner) we read gets a code for that week. We send them out via e-mail as soon as we get a chance!

    I was really hoping for an update about Borderlands 2 for PSVita after Randy Pitchford’s comment earlier this month saying he’d like to see it happen.

    @jeffsmither https://blog.us.playstation.com/2012/07/08/the-drop-week-of-july-9th-2012-new-releases/
    They mention here that because it’s a PAL game it’s never coming out in the US store.

      Don’t worry, we hadn’t even seen it yet, just talked about going to see it and such, nothing remotely spoilery. I’m pretty crazily anti-spoiler, so anything that’s ever too close will get beeped.

    The more I listen to this show, the more I realize Sid and I couldn’t possibly have more different tastes in movies, lol.

    Like always great episode, really enjoyed the interviews. I must say I’m really glad I listened, because I was on the fence about getting Dyad, but I trusted in the beards (Nick and Shawn) and picked it up. I’m really enjoying the game so far and I’ll admit it does get pretty challenging, but never frustrating to where you want to throw your controller or break something or the likes. It’s actually kinda like gambling (not that I gamble) in the sense that you either do really bad and have to try again, or get really close and want to try it one more time. To anyone who is considering whether they should get this game, I strongly recommend it.

    And I’m pretty proud of myself
    Level 4 (game): 81 place out of 3164 (right now) on the global leaderboards :)

    I personally can’t wait for borderlands 2, the first was so much fun unfortunately I didn’t have many people to play it with. I hope i’m able to play the second game with someone :)
