We’re celebrating Dyad launch week here at PlayStation.Blog, so we welcome the game’s creator Shawn McGrath into Sid‘s vacant, but still warm chair. Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford talks Borderlands 2 in an interview, and details the improvements that PS3 owners will notice in the sequel. And I catch up with Kadeem Hardison, who at San Diego Comic-Con was unveiled to join Ellen Page as a character in BEYOND: Two Souls. He was in A Different World!

As you’ve come to expect, we’ll reveal next week’s PSN new releases, share PlayStation user tips, and answer your player queries. Anybody got a Dark Knight Rises ticket you’re not using?

    • Can someone please list the start time of the Borderlands 2 talk/interview?

      -Thanks

    • I don’t normally listen but I saw Borderlands 2 so I’m in.

      Can you tell me if Borderlands 2 will be released on PSN at launch and if so if it will include access to the premier club?
      I own the first on PSN and like the idea of adding this to my digital library but won’t give up being able to play this day one if it’s not coming so I want to know so i can preorder it if not. Thanks

    • Oh I didn’t know you were on the Podcast Jeff you and your wife make all the mini’s right? I’ll give it a listen then BEYOND

    • No you guys are not unbearable to listen to lol :-)

    • My favorite podcast plus Borderlands 2! Perfect winning combo!

    • When will there be an update for youtube on vita Jeff? I would like to be able to see someone’s channel, a subscribe button, and an automatic refresh on comments.

    • Not unbearable to listen to at all.. well, maybe if I hear the words “Farm Fresh” one more time.. j/k j/k ;)

    • Dwayne Wayne and his forever cool flip-up glasses tell me to listen to this one. Also I hope you guys are fulfilling Pitchford’s wishes (and our own) to get Borderlands 2 on the Vita.

    • @9 dragon_night

      that kingdom hearts collection should have chain of memories and birth by sleep too

    • Have a safe “trip” in Dyad Sid, lol. Come back soon! =)

    • I’m confused about the letters and the tip of the week… Does everyone mentioned on the Podcast gets a Dyad code? How and when do they get the code? thanks!

      • Yep, anyone whose letter or tip (or mystery theme winner) we read gets a code for that week. We send them out via e-mail as soon as we get a chance!

    • great podcast i have a question is there any future psn vita games sale? also any news on frobisher says release date?

    • we need more creappy eyes. half of the pics are not huge and creappy

    • I was really hoping for an update about Borderlands 2 for PSVita after Randy Pitchford’s comment earlier this month saying he’d like to see it happen.

    • that sid gif is funny as hell lol

    • Any word on Micky mina for PS1 that was suppose to come out 2 weeks ago on psn?

    • “It’s at about 17:00.”

      Thank You

    • Great show. Not sure if this is the best place to request it but can we get Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops working on Vita please?

    • @jeffsmither https://blog.playstation.com/2012/07/08/the-drop-week-of-july-9th-2012-new-releases/
      They mention here that because it’s a PAL game it’s never coming out in the US store.

    • We would be in “a different world’ if Metal Gear Solid Portable Ops worked on the Vita! PLEASE someone get that game working. DWAYNE WAYNE 4 Life…nevermind!

    • Oh and great blogcast as always! Was distracted by those glasses…

    • Stuff We Talked About: The Dark Knight Rises. ……. Ok ill pass on this podcast until next week when I see it lol you guys went crazy with Prometheus and i dont wanna hear it with batman lol

      • Don’t worry, we hadn’t even seen it yet, just talked about going to see it and such, nothing remotely spoilery. I’m pretty crazily anti-spoiler, so anything that’s ever too close will get beeped.

    • Borderlands on the VITA <3 Make it happen! it's a system seller !

    • The more I listen to this show, the more I realize Sid and I couldn’t possibly have more different tastes in movies, lol.

    • Like always great episode, really enjoyed the interviews. I must say I’m really glad I listened, because I was on the fence about getting Dyad, but I trusted in the beards (Nick and Shawn) and picked it up. I’m really enjoying the game so far and I’ll admit it does get pretty challenging, but never frustrating to where you want to throw your controller or break something or the likes. It’s actually kinda like gambling (not that I gamble) in the sense that you either do really bad and have to try again, or get really close and want to try it one more time. To anyone who is considering whether they should get this game, I strongly recommend it.

      And I’m pretty proud of myself
      Level 4 (game): 81 place out of 3164 (right now) on the global leaderboards :)

    • I personally can’t wait for borderlands 2, the first was so much fun unfortunately I didn’t have many people to play it with. I hope i’m able to play the second game with someone :)

    • Listening, and I really respect Shawn now. Great attitude.
