Borderlands - Totally Not The Flop Michael Pachter Said It Would Be.

" He was wrong. Gearbox's new IP sold at an alarming rate, faring incredibly on the XBOX 360, and still rather well as part of a congested PS3 line-up. In fact, Gearbox are claiming Borderlands to be the fastest selling new IP of the year, an accolade we won't argue with. Basing it on just NPD data, only Prototype comes close, but that had an extra 11 days on sale before the report was compiled, so we should imagine the accolade will go to Borderlands.

That's significant for Gearbox, as it means they'll certainly be able to pitch a sequel for the game at some point in the near future.
