Randy Pitchford has issued a response on Jan. 26 regarding a fan complaint about the hacked items that is plaguing the recently-released multiplatform title, “Borderlands 2.” The president of Gearbox Software revealed through Twitter that hacking is “not an easy problem to solve” in the Mac, PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 video game. You can check out some screens from the open-world cooperative role-playing game in the slideshow at the top of this article and Randy Pitchford’s comments below (courtesy of the DuvalMagic Twitter):
Not an easy problem to solve - it's been a war of attrition in the software industry as long as there has been software.
When the subject of massively multiplayer online games being able to combat hacking came up, Randy Pitchford added the following statement:
Requires data on servers, meaning on-line only, monthly fees and lots of latency given game's pace and core loop. Not viable for us.
Randy Pitchford and the rest of his team at Gearbox Software were responsible for handling the development of “Borderlands 2.” Although several patches were released for the open-world cooperative role-playing game already, a few issues such as the aforementioned hacked items still exist.
2K Games released “Borderlands 2” for the PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 systems in North America on Sept. 18, 2012. A Mac version also came out later in the same year on Nov. 20. You can purchase the title in the following link: “Borderlands 2”
