Borderlands on Steam & Preorder Strangeness

Gearbox's Mikey Neumann tweets: "Today is OFFICIAL BORDERLANDS PRE ORDER DAY. Twitter me a screen of you buying the game and I'll play BLs with you and give you loot." This was posted by Kotaku, at which point it seems they, as they put it, may have called a bluff, but he subsequently tweeted that he seems to be following through on this, saying: "To everyone flooding in from Kotaku. I'm writing down XBL's PSN's and whatnot for when the game comes out." Finally, he also tweets about an "official Steam announcement," which is actually an unofficial Destructoid article saying the game will be released via Steam, also getting word from Gearbox's Steve Gibson that the PC edition of Borderlands will include the ability to export jpgs of your weapons, will have full mouse support for menus, and the best graphics out of the game's target systems.

Really looking forward to this one.

On the DRM front, could go either way as 2K Games (owned by Take-Two) is publishing it. The "shareholder shackle" is ridiculous and frustrates their honest customers. It's sad when I have to log into a digital distribution platform and then log into GFWL just to play a game. I'm sure there's a third layer of BS coming down the pipe eventually, on top of in-game advertising.

You know selling dlc before you patch the client doesn't impress upon me the need to support your shit. -massdev
