If it’s anything like its predecessor, you’re probably going to want to play Borderlands 2 time and time again. As such, it makes sense to have the game safely stored on your hard drive – which is perhaps why developer Gearbox has decided to sell the title day-and-date on PSN.

Those of you in North America or Europe will be able to snap up the title on 18th September and 21st September respectively directly from the PlayStation Store. The game will set you back $59.99/£49.99, which is perhaps a little bit more than in the shops. You’ll still get access to all of the pre-order bonuses, however, including the mysterious Golden Key.

If you’re in Europe, you can pre-order the title from the PlayStation Store right now. Pre-orders on the PSN are pretty neat, because they’re supported by the pre-load feature. This essentially allows you to download a game in its entirety ahead of launch, meaning you can start playing the minute release day rolls around. Pretty nifty, huh?
