If you've been holding your breath in anticipation of the release of Borderlands 2 on the PlayStation Vita, we're glad to inform you that the popular shooter has now been given a firm release date. That's right, you can now safely start scrounging together some loot to purchase the title on 28th May in Europe. But first, you should probably see a doctor, because we're pretty sure that not breathing for so long will have done you some serious and irreparable damage.
This comes soon after the news that the port will only support two players in its multiplayer mode, as opposed to the console version's four. What's more, the Japanese giant recently announced a rather handsome bundle for the North American market that will include both the game and a slim model Vita. That's actually out now. Still, if you just want to know whether the series' distinctive visuals hold up on the handheld's screen, take a look through here.
Will you be giving this conversion a shot, or have you already poured hours of your life into the console version? Are you concerned that the shooter may lose precision when played with the Vita's analogue sticks? Loot-'n'-shoot in the comments section below.

I was reading some impressions from people who bought the bundle and apparently this is a pretty good port. I was quite surprised...
I cannot understand why the release date is so late to be honest...
@danny2kd SCEE, innit...
@get2sammyb well in theory it has been out in America 3 days, then the official release date is the 15th I think, then in the eu ours is it the end of the month. It's like they're trying to milk it for some reason
Surprised also, I was kind of expecting quite a few glitches and patches in the first couple of months. Pretty smooth huh
Okay it isn't a crap port, its a late striped down one. I'll think about buying it seeing as Amazon have it on the cheap.
I bought the Borderlands 2 Vita Slim Bundle and have been playing it ALOT! Its an absolutely amazing port of the game, Im actually really shocked how well it is on the vita, because it looks so close to the ps3 version.
@hydeks you rubbing it in lol
After hearing some known YouTube reviews on the PS Vita version, I might as well pick this one up on the 13th next week! The reviews said it is pretty close to its console brethren.
