With the first-person frolics of Gearbox Software’s uber-popular shoot-‘n’-loot escapade Borderlands 2 set to expand to the PlayStation Vita this month, fresh information about the pocketable port is beginning to fire its way online. However, not all of this intel is good, as one such previously unknown tidbit that’s just emerged on the PlayStation Blog is that the re-release will be limited to just two players.

While the original PlayStation 3 version proudly flaunted its support for four heavily armed soldiers, it seems that Iron Galaxy has been unable to add that bullet point to the box of the handheld edition. The abovementioned publication points out that while the team strived to include the full co-op mode, it made the decision to focus on providing “the best two-player-only co-op experience possible”.

It’s a shame, but the inclusion of cross-save means that you’ll probably be using this version to grind-on-the-go, before transferring your progress back to the PS3 to get the full co-op experience. Have you been positively put off this port by the paltry player count? Were you planning to skip it anyway? Parade your favourite purple loot in the comments section below.
