      I have this on its way. Can't wait, love how the PS3/360 ranks,weapons ect are carried over. I'm almost done with borderlands but will enjoy the DLC. Never played the other game so that will be something I'm looking forward to.

      Borderlands to me is one of the best games ever made. One that's fresh and exciting no matter where you are. One that can be picked up and put down and picked up again, it never makes you say God I wish this would end like battlefield hardline.

      Only gears of war 2 has left me with such enjoyment.

      Oh god - how many hours did I put into Borderlands 2… it is (was) so, soooo good, and then the DLC.. amazing.

      I think if this had BL1 on it as well as the other two, I'd get it as it would be pretty definitive, but why the omission of 1?

      It's the handsome jack collection, jack was the main man in borderlands 2 and the pre-sequel. They could of added all three but I think they wanted to just upgrade the current games to cash in. Missing the first game won't put many off. If it feeds them money to make another game then I'm all for it.

      Mine arrived this morning so can't wait to play it.

      I think Randy Pitchford (President of the original developers Gearbox Software) mentioned on the Major Nelson Podcast (it's an Xbox podcast but I guess it might still apply here) they were able to port the engine for Pre Sequal and Borderlands 2 as they are very close but Borderlands 1 would have required more work and was out of scope. But he did mention they would like to add it eventually if sales are good and people want it (sounds like DLC).

      Yeah it's never a good idea to work out how much time you've put into a game, always makes me question myself, ha. Think I'll have to play through these, I've not yet played any of the Borderlands games, but they sound great by the sound of things.

      I want this but i will wait for a price drop, not in any rush after finishing both on the X360 and borderlands 2 on ps3.

      I'm thinking out getting this but I'm unsure if I should wait for it to show up on sale.

      The review mentioned frame rate issues, anyone know if these have been fixed or reduced with a patch/update?
