As Borderlands 2 has been released on multiple platforms, would it be possible for me to play Borderlands 2 on PC with a friend that is playing on a PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 or is it only possible to play with people on the same platform?

The short answer is NO, for now.

According to the Gearbox community manager:

Cross-platform multiplayer is something we'd really like to support, but is also something that historically been pretty tricky to implement across all platforms. It's something we're continuing to look into, both for Borderlands 2 and our works beyond, and hopefully something we'll be able to do in the future.


  • While it would be possible for PS3 and PC users to play with one another, with the seperation of XBOX Live, I don't see it happening.

    @Ramhound There's more history of PC and Xbox 360 cross-platform multiplayer than there is of PC and PS3. Windows PCs and Xbox 360 are both Microsoft platforms and I can at least name one title that supported this feature, Shadowrun. Commented Nov 9, 2012 at 4:49
  • @SionSheevok if you can only name 1 game that support cross-platform play between PC and 360, then it's exactly the same amount of history as there is for cross-platform play between PC and PS3 (Portal 2) - one game each.

    Correct, but at this point, my comment is nearly a year old. The point was that Microsoft owns both platforms and there already existed a history of Microsoft supporting Xbox Live/Windows for Games Live. It's been done on both platforms now, but to think PC/PS3 is easier or more likely than PC/Xbox is questionable. Commented May 23, 2013 at 1:03
