Borderlands was released earlier this week to highly favorable reviews on both the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 home consoles. While the game has been receiving praise across most sites, the most common complaint regards the game’s co-op mode. The complaint, which is exclusive to the PS3 version of the game, is related to the game’s friends list feature in conjunction with online cooperative play.
In addition to slow load times, inviting friends to play cooperatively yields highly negative results. This comes as a real bummer to those who had their heart set on unleashing pain and suffering in the world of Pandora alongside their buddies. Luckily, the folks over at Gearbox have announced that they are aware of the bug, and that a patch is imminent.
Gearbox software engineer Scott Velasquez posted the following on the site’s official forums: “We’ve identified the problem and are working on a fix.” This should come as a relief to gamers playing Borderlands on the PS3, as the aforementioned fix will remedy the online co-op glitch and offer the same online features as the Xbox 360 version.
It’s a shame that PS3 owners weren’t able to get the same online experience with Borderlands as Xbox 360 owners from the get-go, but at least Gearbox is working on the problem. In addition to fixing the problem, Gearbox employees are also looking to see if the problem plagues international copies of the game.
It should be noted that while most Borderlands players are experiencing this problem with the PS3 version of the game, there have also been small groups of gamers that haven’t had such a problem. In any case, those who are suffering the ill effects of the co-op glitch in Borderlands need not fret much longer.
