Is there a way to transfer items between my characters in Dungeon Siege 3?

I've been searching what seems high and low for any info...

  1. Can I transfer items between my characters (protagonist, companion (AI))?
  2. If not, is there a general rule to who picks up the drop?
  3. If there isn't, how can I influence who gets the drop?

Dungeon Siege 3 uses a single shared inventory.

It doesn't matter who picks up an item, it goes into the inventory. While playing single-player and in the equipping menu, press Y to switch characters. While playing two-player, each player can access their own equipping menu.

Items are equip-able by certain characters. For example, if a weapon drops, that weapon will show the portrait of a character. Only that character may equip it, but anyone may pick it up.

I think the edits got a little out of hand.. The same goes for the PS3 version of the game, correct? – Heki Jan 25 '13 at 6:47
Yes. PS3 players would press triangle to switch characters in the equipping menu. – David B Jan 25 '13 at 12:19
