Buying It on console/PC is cheaper, GOTY has all the dlc, and it's the BETTER experience. Why limit yourself to the most expensive and overall worse version of this incredible game. You're not doing yourself any justice.

Don't buy this game simply because 1) It's portable and 2) You've never played BL2, or any BL for that matter. It would be unethical is this was your first Borderlands experience. Save your money people.

Of course I wouldn't be arguing this is the game was actually a good, direct port of the console/PC version. But, it's not. In fact, it's far from it.

/end rant.

There are bound to be people who only have a Vita to play on, so i don't see why not.
and i'll stay neutral on the whole bad porting you mentioned, but if you put in perspective, BL2 on the Vita is an Impressive amount of work.

You wont see this on a Phone or 3DS or any other portable console.

I agree that it is very cool seeing Borderlands on a handheld, but it's the principle.

Personally, I think Borderlands should have it's own Vita version of the game made specifically for the Vita. Porting the console version didn't work, so why not just make a Borderlands game for the Vita?

What does me watching TV have to do with anything?

I agree, watered down ports are a nono for me.

They could have just added remote play for the ps3 version and called it a day.
