I am so disappointed in this game. I expected something like Fallout 3 but perhaps more lighthearted. But this game is a joke. The quests are the simplest, stupidest quests I've seen in a very long time and the backstory is almost invisible. And the gameplay mechanics are so simple. I have finished the Firestone missions but I simply find no motivation to continue.

Just downloaded this for free with my PS+ subscription.
So far I'm loving the game. Gameplay is great and I'm loving the humor.

Just got the GOTY edition. What an amazing game! Cant stop playing coz the game is so exciting. Coop with friends is great.

So many random adjustments this past week for the PS3. No wonder I couldnt find this game haha.
drakesfortune (on 13 March 2011)
1.1 mil! This must have been adjusted up?

5 weeks for 1 million

Holy shit I love this game. Recently bought from the PSN and game shared it with a couple of close friends. Might be one of my fav co-op games by the time this gen ends. We'll see.

This game can shit on Killzone 2!
jbrist (on 16 April 2010)
Well it seems to have great legs anyway, we'll see how it goes over the next year, and with a pricecut or two, it should pass the 1m mark easily.
grimygunz (on 16 April 2010)
great game but after i got the platnum sent it back to gamefly. might buy it when price comes down and i if the dlc get a sale.

@ jester2358
Perhaps Uncharted 2 hurt the opening of Borderlands. But it should have had better legs if PS3 owners really had interest in it.

Anyhow, this is still a $60 game. It'll hit a million after price cuts. Its just too damn good to be ignored.
jester2358 (on 15 March 2010)
this game will struggle to reach a million. uncharted killed this game in the face. sad its great fun.
guyincognito (on 13 February 2010)
Great game, word of mouth will hopefully push it higher.
yusuke93_ita (on 11 February 2010)
great game overall
Hidalgo (on 23 January 2010)
Uncharted 2 kidnapped many units from Borderlands.

Still, it's a masterpiece for those who look for co-op experiences. Moreover, it's a FPS. What else can you ask for? xD

@ squeeky
Not a good excuse for the overall slow sales so far. The 360 has a bigger shooter fan base and that's why it sold better.

These sales aren't half bad though. It'll sell over a million down the road.
squeeky (on 14 January 2010)
For those that wonder why sales are less than the 360, this game came out the same week as Uncharted 2. Regardless, pick it up now, it is really good (especially with friends).
MarshmallowMan (on 10 January 2010)
Have the online bugs with the PS3 version been sorted out?

dobby985 (on 01 January 2010)
It did sell well.
Uruler (on 28 December 2009)
why didn't the Ps3 version sell well??
blueknight (on 26 December 2009)
just got this game it is an awesome game the sales will pick up
SubiyaCryolite (on 23 December 2009)
The 360 version sold 1.1mil, PS3 sold 400k, so the PC should be at 400 to 500k level since the game is reported to have sold 2mil combined. Not bad.
Boneitis (on 22 December 2009)
@ Statix
I'm sure the PC has a hardcore market just as big if not bigger than consoles. It just doesn't reflect in sales thanks to piracy.

On top of that there is a huge market of people that dabble in everything else PC gaming offers.
Statix (on 19 December 2009)
@Boneitis: When you say PC is the biggest userbase of gamers, are you talking about just the true hardcore gamers that buy new games every month (like the average console gamer)? Or are you including WoW addicts and people that play web/flash games and solitaire? I mean, there is a difference.

@terislb
same >:(
dobby985 (on 19 December 2009)
I love this game!
THATGUY (on 16 December 2009)
arrived 2day, cant play it till christmas
terislb (on 10 December 2009)
the ending made me go >:(

@ Ravage27
Nobody said gaming was a top priority of PC users. But its safe to say PCs are the biggest gaming userbase for obvious reasons.

If you play the latest games you definitely want Windows 7. Hence, games help sell their OS.

By the way, your 2 year old laptop running L4D isn't very impressive. L4D has low requirements compared to most modern games. I run it on a 6 year old computer with an AGP video card. Plays fine there as well.
Munkeh111 (on 30 November 2009)
Is this game worth it ignoring MP? It is very cheap at the moment
THATGUY (on 30 November 2009)
this game isnt selling well atall on the ps3, it already 17.99 at play.com. im gunna buy it once i get some money, proberly after christmas.
Ravage27 (on 28 November 2009)
@Boneitis
ppl buy Windows for work/school purposes, games are often at the bottom of their priority list. Most games like ME1 and L4D runs perfectly on my 2 yr old laptop which is required for my education
Ghazi4 (on 23 November 2009)
add me so we can play this game together PSN ID: Majali4
Boneitis (on 19 November 2009)
@ XxXProphecyXxX
Regardless, I can't play them on the PS3. Gives me less of a reason to purchase a gaming computer.

Also, MS obviously wants great games on Windows. Those game sell their OS. Sony needs to keep their games exclusive in hopes people buy a PS3.
XxXProphecyXxX (on 19 November 2009)
lol @ the exclusives you guys named....I guess you ignored the rules made officialy about calling games exclusive when its also on PC...but w/e helps you sleep at night I guess.
donsterydo2 (on 18 November 2009)
The gap between the two version is just weird, I would understand it if it was 1.5:1 or 2:1 but 3:1 is just strange.

yusuke93_ita: UN2 is not the case, it's only one ex game. On X360 we had ODST, Forza 3, Gay Tony and L4D2 is around the corner.

Boneitis (on 16 November 2009)
@ yusuke93_ita
Uncharted 2 sold well, but not exactly outstanding.

For whatever reason this game didn't appeal to PS3 fans. Its doing even worse than Tekken 6 on the Xbox 360.
yusuke93_ita (on 15 November 2009)
Nothing to compete with? Uncharted 2?
blue7x7 (on 13 November 2009)
They should have just made it exclusive for the xbox 360 it would have probably sold more on the 360 like that. Horrible start for the ps3 version and it hardly has anything to compete with. The 360 version had ballad of gay tony, Forza 3, Halo ODST.
Boneitis (on 11 November 2009)
@ sjhillsa
And Left 4 Dead, Fable, Crackdown...

But who's counting?
sjhillsa (on 11 November 2009)
you forgot, Mass Effect, Splinter Cell Conviction, Alan Wake etc.. but whatever.
Abberon (on 10 November 2009)
lol @ ArticGabe.

The 360 has hardly any exclusives. Gears of War, Halo and Forza. There you go. I listed them all.
Boneitis (on 09 November 2009)
@ drakesfortune
ODST came out at the end of September. So it hasn't been that long.

Regardless, Uncharted 2 is not the reason Borderlands has poor sales on the PS3. Plain and simple.
ArcticGabe (on 08 November 2009)
lol @ Prophecy

There are as many good exclusives on 360 if not more. Go check metacritics yourself.
Agreatsplit (on 07 November 2009)
the 360 version had to contend with op2 forza 3 and odst so the u2 thing is bull
drakesfortune (on 07 November 2009)
Boneitis, Uncharted 2 is a shooter. But, point taken, I think Uncharted 2 is in a class head and shoulders above ODST, even if sale don't show it. I own both consoles and love them both BTW. I do think that Uncharted and Ratchet being released at the SAME time is a bigger deal. ODST was released a couple months earlier, and that makes a difference.
Boneitis (on 06 November 2009)
@ drakesfortune
If logic like that was true every 360 game would have bombed courtesy of ODST.

Clearly 360 owners enjoy shooters more. Many people came to the 360 for Halo and they continue to buy shooters.
XxXProphecyXxX (on 06 November 2009)
lol @ artic gabe

wats wrong got no good exclusives to play?
MetalGearSolid_4ever (on 06 November 2009)
@Arctic Gabe

How would that result in more sales ?
ArcticGabe (on 05 November 2009)
Wow this has flopped on PS3! Should've made as a 360 exclusive with more contents = more sales on 360
FootballFan (on 02 November 2009)
will have good legz
drakesfortune (on 02 November 2009)
Yep, Uncharted killed this game on PS3
MAFKKA (on 01 November 2009)
In EU it didn't really have a shot. Released within the same time frame as Fifa 10, Uncharted 2 and on the same day as PES 2010. It did a total of 100k on both 360 and PS3.
squeeky (on 31 October 2009)
I agree, low sales because of Uncharted. 360 had nothing else the week this was released.
BanTiger (on 30 October 2009)
Uncharted 2 is killing this game sale
pchyczewski (on 30 October 2009)
Love this game!!!
geddesmond2 (on 30 October 2009)
with demons soul and uncharted 2 released recently. All the games I planned to get have been pushed aside. Now I don't think I'll pick this game up until next year sometime
Bagaren85 (on 30 October 2009)
That was low compared to 360v. Legs hopefully.
THATGUY (on 30 October 2009)
if u like fallout would you like this??
metalgearmatt (on 30 October 2009)
I think third parties are going to start asking Sony to stop making so many kickass games a year.
8Nawt753 (on 29 October 2009)
Wow! I expected better, even I bought it.
Munkeh111 (on 29 October 2009)
That's a bit of a flop! Less than 1/3 the 360! That is awful
sjhillsa (on 26 October 2009)
Theo's convince me :) It didn't take much haha! Ordered it today.
Theo (on 26 October 2009)
I think I'll pick this up. It's got coop, fps, rpg and loot. And it's got a ton of people talking about how great it is.
Fame_Mcswagg (on 04 October 2009)
I think its all first person
zenioux (on 22 September 2009)
Will there be a Third Person perspective?
Fame_Mcswagg (on 02 September 2009)
there is no VATS its more like a fps rpg
sjhillsa (on 29 August 2009)
I don't think so, its' not Fallout 3. There was some footage of the gameplay and there was no V.A.T.S to be seen.
chris1_16 (on 12 April 2009)
After looking at the last screen shot, will this game copy the V.A.T.S system?
