Gearbox Bringing Borderlands 2 to PSP Vita in 2014

One of the highlights NVIDIA has talked about while promoting its SHIELD portable gaming device is being able to stream a game like Borderlands 2 from your PC to wherever you are in your house. Well, it seems as though that wasn’t meant to be the only way to enjoy the game mobile, as Gearbox has just announced a version set for a 2014 launch for Sony’s PSP Vita. I didn’t see that coming.

Apparently, Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford has named-dropped the Vita in the past, and with Sony’s collaboration with the company, this version is becoming a reality. Heading up the porting process is Iron Galaxy Studios, makers of the well-received Divekick, released just this week on the PS3, Vita, and PC (via Steam).

It’s hard to say exactly what the Vita version is going to look like when it gets here, but given the graphical horsepower of the device, the result should look pretty good. Like the PC version, you’ll be able to team up with up to three friends for some co-op action, and we can only hope that all of the DLC available on the PC will be available for this Vita version as well.

And out of nowhere, now I kind of want a Vita.

      You -can- play co-op, but I assume you mean co-op against someone on the PC. I don’t see that happening, but it’d be pretty epic.
