Wow, very pleasant surprise. Was honestly suspecting a cancellation given the radio silence on the port since its announcement. Whether it will be a good port remains to be seen, but the structure of BL seems perfectly suited to portable play.
As I understand, Iron Galaxy are no strangers to porting games. Although, the only port by them that I have played is Scribblenauts Remix so I cannot speak for the general quality of them. I had assumed Borderlands 2 on the Vita must've become vaporware with the lack of media.
Oh wow. This is actually coming out. I don't normally play FPS games but I'm really enjoying Killzone on Vita. If this is good maybe I will get it which would also be another sale for third parties on Vita.
Nice! My platform for BL is PC now, but if it isnt....a jet watered down version on vita, I may double dip, but yeah no screens or videos has me concerned. In fact its been silent since it was announced.
I'm enjoying lots of GREAT 3D games on Vita. It's not supposed to be a console or anything. I've seen only few handheld titles looking better on iPhones (and that's because the title wasn't ported to Vita, which I'm sure it could handle).
These days I respect a clean image more than eye candy. Likewise I prefer a high framerate with simple graphics than a low one with all the bells and whistles.
3D games on the Vita are in this sub-par middle ground between phone games and PS360 games, which themselves are increasingly looking dated because the hardware is being pushed further than it can go.
Im not knocking anyone who feels different, but after playing Dragons crown, Muramasa, Rayman, Sound shapes, Guacamelee and a bunch of others, I really feel the Vita shines when you play 2D games over 3D ones. They may not have the same level of graphical fidelity, but they look clean, they run well and feel like true handheld games, rather than console cast offs.
