Borderlands 2 Vita cross-saves won't work till next week

Having trouble getting Borderlands 2 Vita's cross-save ability to work? There's a reason for that.

Those of you who picked up the Borderlands 2 PlayStation Vita bundle are definitely in for a treat, as you can download the game and all of its downloadable content days before the game's official release. However, there's something that'll be missing from your loot sessions until May 13th.

The development team behind the portable version of the game promised that it would feature cross-compatibility with saves from the PlayStation 3 edition. However, that feature hasn't gone live just yet.

A number of users took to the official Gearbox Software forums (via Game Informer) to address the matter. Since that time, a company representative has responded, stating that a patch will be available for the game on Tuesday, May 13, its first official day of release. At that time, the feature will be live, and players will be able to carry over their progress on the PS Vita, and vice-versa.

So don't worry, fellow looters, it's not too far off. And it's certainly not Handsome Jack's doing…

      Does anyone actually find the Vita thumb sticks easy to use? I can't imagine playing a FPS game with them.

        From the demo I tried, the controls weren't that bad, honestly.

        I have no trouble with it. Platformers and even FPS games play great.

        Should not be used for fighters, though. Easier to pull off combos on the d-pad which is not ideal, either.

      So I wont be able to use the dlc I got from the vita version on ps3 or is there a patch for that next week too? Because if not, whats the point of it coming with all the dlc and you try to cross save your dlc characters only to find out you can't? Why would you buy dlc you already got for free?
