Borderlands 2: Return to Pandora on Blu-ray and PSN Tomorrow

Chris Faylor's Avatar Posted by Community Manager, Gearbox Software

Hey Vault Hunters, the wait is nearly over! You’ve seen all the gameplay videos, you’ve read all the previews, you’ve possibly even played our demo at PAX, now it’s time for you to finally get your hands on Borderlands 2 for PlayStation 3 when it hits store shelves everywhere and PlayStation Network in North America Tuesday, September 18th! The development team at Gearbox Software has worked tirelessly over the last few years to make this game live up to the mantra “bigger, better, and more badass,” and we’re all so excited for you to experience the shooting and looting mayhem for yourself.

Borderlands 2 has 870 bazillion guns! According to our team’s math wiz, that’s approximately 800 bazillion more guns than the 17,750,000 that the Guinness Book of World Records said was in the first game!

From everyone at Gearbox Software and 2K Games, we’d like to thank you for your support, enthusiasm and encouragement while we developed this game. It’s been a wild ride and this Tuesday the mayhem begins — bring some friends!

Follow Gearbox and 2K Games on Twitter, and check out Borderlands 2 on Facebook.

If I bought this on PSN will I receive the pre-order DLC? Would be great to know NOW since if I did then I would go for the PSN copy instead.

    Since it’s technically buying it on day 1, not pre-ordering, you won’t receive the pre-order bonus.

I second #1’s question. We need to know now if we want to get it. You have been very quiet on the matter, as myself and many other people have asked for weeks now. Please let us know.

Otherwise I am so excited for tomorrow!!! :)

I will third the initial question posed. That is the deciding factor right now on how I get the game, but I seriously doubt we’ll get the preorder bonuses, since we couldn’t preorder.

Kchow23 said:

September 17th, 10:13 am

@5 It would be a nice perk to have even though we wouldn’t be pre-ordering since we would be buying it on PSN and we won’t be able to resell it or lend it to a friend.

I’ve seen lots of videos focusing on coop play. Will I have fun playing it alone #foreveralone?

Beattie_theBeast said:

@1 and 2

I highly doubt your getting bonuses because did the pre order the game or are you just buying? Just saying that I think I doubt you guys would get the bonus stuff.

Borderland is a good game Looking forward to borderlands 2 ;-)

Why did you guys NOT give NA members the option to preorder the game on psn but did give the european psn members? That makes absolutely no sense to me.
I bet you will still charge $60 for it too, despite it being digital and not coming with preorder Premiere Club content.
I hate saying this, since i love the first borderlands and think the developers are probably great people, but this is just being greedy.

Kchow23 said:

September 17th, 10:22 am

@8 Yes, I understand that but they should be rewarding users that buy games over PSN and if anything they should’ve allowed us to pre-order it monts ago. However, what is the point of buying it on PSN if you don’t get the same bonuses? If they added the pre-order bonus then it would give us more reason to buy it on PSN.

any chance of move support,

Ryumoau said:

September 17th, 10:28 am

@12 i’m honestly starting to think Sony America is just stupid. They have been screwing us over with the content we get with Plus, not giving us a 25% discount on renewing the subscription if we even had a desire to, now they can’t even convince Gearbox to give us the preorder bonus for the psn version. :/

ResistanceGTA said:

September 17th, 10:31 am

I think a response would be great, but, I’ve noted a severe lack of responses to anything anymore, unless its pointless comments. Let’s see if this would get a response.

This game is going to be the greatest game ever to exist ever.. ever.

Kchow23 said:

September 17th, 10:33 am

I mean it’s not hard to look over at the LBP post and see that they are giving both pre-order bonuses to users that buy the PSN copy during that week. Why is it so hard to do it for Borderlands as well?

LlamaD said:

September 17th, 10:34 am

If you all would do your research online about pre-orders for Borderlands 2, you would already know that you won’t be able to get any pre-order bonuses for those people who buy it through PSN.

Funny, this video is supposed to show the game on the PS3 yet it’s on the xbox.

Kchow23 said:

September 17th, 10:53 am

@20 Oh no! PS Blog crew assemble and fix the video!

Ryumoau said:

@7 forever alone? lol

I am checking my mailbox hourly for the free copy you gave me at PAX Prime 2011!

Peregrinatio said:

September 17th, 11:19 am

I have to say, Sony North America, your colleagues in Europe make you look really bad. I can’t believe that we weren’t able to preorder with bonuses.

I have to say that there are very few conclusions that I can come to as to why this didn’t happen. Someone along the chain is either 1) lazy, 2) greedy, or 3) incompetent.

Richlando said:

September 17th, 11:28 am

The Preload imo is the bonus. Downloaded the game 3 days ago and I can’t see why a 63kb file couldn’t be included for those buying the game on PSN in SCEA land. If its not included in the d/l for NA its a shame but the blame always comes down to $$..always.

Ryumoau said:

September 17th, 11:42 am

@ 24 and 25
i totally agree. It wouldn’t be so bad if they actually reduced the freaking price for the digital version.

Link01 said:

September 17th, 11:47 am

So… I know it’s been asked again and again. But is there going to be a discount on the PSN version? Hell, I’ll use up my HDD space and bandwidth in a heart beat to download/buy the PSN version… if it’s discounted for me having to use my HDD space and bandwidth……

Heatseeker125 said:

September 17th, 11:49 am

They don’t care because they know you will buy the PSN version anyway. Send them a message and don’t buy the PSN version. Buy the retail version. This is just going to keep happening over and over until you guys do something about it.

KrisButtar said:

September 17th, 11:57 am

@29, i know eh, i never buy them on the PSN until they are at a discount price.

Nithorias said:

September 17th, 11:57 am

I cannot believe that Sony America didn’t gave us the chance to pre-order the game for the bonuses, and I’m pretty sure that the digital version will cost $60 anyway >.< very disappointed with you Sony!

NHDrumline17 said:

September 17th, 11:58 am

So just clarification, there is NO PREMIER ACCESS for DIGITAL purchasers of Borderlands 2. SCEA, you just lost a sale for dropping the ball.

ResistanceGTA said:

September 17th, 11:59 am

Kristine, let’s not use a technicality here.. cause we can pop over to the littlebigplanet article and see how week 1 equals preorder bonuses of sorts. Technicalities are just a cop-out. Just tell us that retailers had an agreement for preorders here in the states, and that’s what happened…

    September 17th, 12:04 pm

    Since I don’t actually know what happened, only that the pre-order bonus isn’t included, I can’t tell you much more than that. :(

Kchow23 said:

September 17th, 12:12 pm

@Kristine Thanks for answering even though that I don’t like the answer at all, but it isn’t your fault. Hopefully its better next time around, but I am sticking to my retailer copy.

Kchow23 said:

September 17th, 12:18 pm

@36 At that point it would be even cheaper at retail than it would be on PS Plus or PSN.

It is interesting that EU got the ability to pre-order digitally, including Premier Club bonus content and even the ability to pre-download the game. I’m curious if that was a developer decision, or a PSN decision. Doesn’t matter to is much, I’m buying on disc, but still I long for total gaming equality across all regions.

MrPatrick16 said:

September 17th, 12:34 pm

@27 Nascar 2011?..SLICKT is that you?
On this debate about digital, i think its cool that its an easy convenient way of getting the game and i don’t care much for having anything special but, what i disagree with is the price. You don’t get a disc, a case, can”t resell it when done with it, and don’t get a booklet inside so why is it $60? I’m probably gonna get this digitally someday but i have always felt that digital games should always be $10 dollars cheaper than actually having a physical copy. Either way, for all you guys that get this game as soon as it comes out, do enjoy it because Borderlands was pretty awesome and a change up to what is mostly flooding the games department.

acelightning15 said:

September 17th, 12:36 pm

please please please at least put the premier club up as dlc bonus content for a small fee. then digital buyers would have the option to purchase it for a small amount.

Well, at least the Euro guys got to pre-order Borderlands 2 and get the bonus for doing so. I am getting tired of PSN North America dropping the ball all the time like this. Or maybe it is supposed to be a big F U to North America. People were asking about this for weeks on these very blogs and now you decide to show up to the party a day late and a few dollars over priced.


September 17th, 1:02 pm

I dont understand why everyone is upset that they are not letting pre orders be made on psn i mean if you wanted it that bad just go to gamestop and pre order it im sure they have a reason why they didnt give us psn pre order at least it is coming out on psn the first day insted of months and months after the release

cant wait until tomorrow…………… going to be one of the best games ever!!!!!!!

ResistanceGTA said:

September 17th, 1:09 pm

Thank you for the response Kristine. I know they keep you in the dark, it’s not your fault.

Alas, I will keep my preorder active since we won’t get the freebies.

Elvick_ said:

September 17th, 1:10 pm

EU owns NA in costumer service. Not just Sony either. Namco Bandai, Square Enix, most branches in EU are better imo.

My main account is US but i pre-ordered the game through my alt UK account how hard is that ?!
You people need to use your brain sometime though its just common sense

ResistanceGTA said:

September 17th, 1:57 pm

We removed the trailer.. cause its for the 360?

Kchow23 said:

September 17th, 2:01 pm

@50 Seems like so, makes sense considering that this is a PlayStation website.

Skrawney said:

September 17th, 2:49 pm

Yay for BL2, lol @psn for another xbox video. Jeebus, give it up on the nascar all ready. You had it right by calling it nadcar btw.

I can’t wait to pick up my preordered copy after work tomorrow on my way home. :)

cobolatrix said:

September 17th, 3:11 pm

Well, it is sad that SCEA didn’t gave us the chance to preorder the game just because 2K just gave the Preorder bonuses to Gamestop and Wallmart.

CrusaderForever said:

September 17th, 3:12 pm

Not sure why anyone that want’s Borderlands 2 would buy it of the PSN with no pre-order bonuses? Don’t get me wrong my whole Vita collection is digital with only 2GB available on my 32GB. But with bonuses like this it’s tough to buy digital:

Gearbox Gold Gun Pack – A package of unique Gearbox Golden Guns to help you start your journey on Pandora!
Golden Key – Unlock a rare item in the mysterious Sanctuary Loot Chest.
Vault Hunter’s Relic – Play solo or team up with friends and boost your gear-hunting fortune with the Vault Hunter’s Relic.
New Character Class – Receive a free download of the all-new Mechromancer character class as soon as she’s available
