Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software, revealed yesterday that the developer had thought about the possibility of cross-platform online play for “Borderlands 2” when he responded to a question posed to him via Twitter. Unfortunately Microsoft and Sony wouldn’t support the idea, leaving the dream of Xbox 360 players grouping with Playstation 3 owners to never become a reality.

If Gearbox Software’s hope for cross-platform play hadn’t been blocked by the first party companies, fans would have been able to group with one another in “Borderlands 2” regardless of which platform they were playing on.

Borderlands 2” is now available on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. Since its release, it has shipped over 5 million copies. Fans can also now download the game’s fifth playable character class or pick up the title’s first campaign DLC, Captain Scarlett and her Pirates Booty. This is the first of four primary add-ons that will release over the course of the next year.
