The PlayStation 3 version of Borderlands is a bit broken, according to early reports from owners of that game. The game's cooperative multiplayer mode won't recognise other Borderlands players on the PS3's friends list, an issue Gearbox is already addressing.
In addition to problems with the PSN friends list, Borderlands is reported by users to have issues finding public games, with waits of 30 minutes or more for a list of available games. Since we feel that Borderlands' biggest strength is its co-op mode, that's two serious problems.
Fortunately, Gearbox software engineer Scott "vatoloco" Velasquez writes on the official Borderlands forums, "We've identified the problem and are working on a fix."
"Believe it or not, the friends feature was heavily tested by Gearbox and 2K," Velasquez writes. "However, this particular issue we found could have never manifested itself in our or 2K's test environments."
"We'll find out very soon if the issue exists for the PS3 International versions of the Borderlands. If it does, we'll hopefully have a fix implemented before it affects those customers," he says. "We are doing everything we can to get this problem addressed as quickly as possible."
Velasquez addresses the timing of that fix later in the thread, saying "The only thing I can say is that we're exploring all options of getting the fix out ASAP!"
Thanks to Mike for the heads up.
