The original story is below.

President of Gearbox Software Randy Pitchford announced on Twitter that the PlayStation Vita version of Borderlands 2 will get its cross-save functionality added via a PlayStation 3 patch this Tuesday, May 20.

One of the most exciting features in the PS Vita version of Borderlands 2 is cross-save compatibility with the PlayStation 3, which allows you to continue playing the same save file on both devices.

If you bought the $200 Borderlands 2 PS Vita Slim bundle just for that reason, you’re probably a little upset that it isn’t working yet, and you’re not alone. Several fans took to Gearbox’s forums and Twitter to ask about the missing feature. On Wednesday, May 14, Pitchford said that he was told the PS3 update will happen on Friday, but that it was totally out of Gearbox’s hands. Then, on Friday, he said he was told it will come on Tuesday. “The news felt more reliable/credible today than last time, [for what it’s worth],” he said.

Borderlands 2 for PS Vita is a collaborative effort between 2K, Sony, and Iron Galaxy Studios, the independent developer behind fighting game Divekick. It retains much of what players know and love about its console and PC versions, but only supports two-player online multiplayer.

Gearbox is also currently co-developing Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel with 2K Australia, as well as two unannounced new franchises for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
