Default Gold gold gold

I'm happy to announce that Borderlands 2 is gold on Xbox 360, PS3 in Europe, PS3 in North America and Windows PC!

Soon, PS3 Japan, PSN for various territories and other additional platforms will achieve Gold status.

I first posted this information on my twitter account: @DuvalMagic (https://twitter.com/DuvalMagic)

Once everything is clearly locked down and final, there will likely be an official press release or announcement with confirmation and further details.

Gold status is achieved after a candidate is submitted to the first parties for certification and after the first parties have all examined the release candidate and signed off on the code as final, conforming to their standards for performance and quality, free of flaws and suitable for manufacturing.

The next step is manufacturing (or preparing and propping the digital software to digital networks as the case may be) after which the game will be shipped to retail (or unlocked for synchronized digital release) in time for the previously announced launch date one month from today!

Today, the Gearbox team is celebrating back in Gearbox HQ in Dallas while several away team members are in Germany sharing the game at Gamescom and myself, Chris Faylor and Brent Friedman have been hitting up Japan, Asia and Australia to share the game with fans and press.

I'll be in San Antonio week after next for the Game Stop event and at PAX Prime with both Borderlands 2 and Aliens Colonial Marines before bring everything back home for the awesome weekend before the launch where we're going to host Gearbox Community Day, a Charitable Celebrity Poker Tournament and the Borderlands 2 Extravaplosion Launch Party.

If you happen to be able to get to Dallas for the events, it's going to be incredible with lots of fun and entertainment and celebration as well as exclusive information about future developments and behind-the-scenes information and access.

Details here: http://www.gearboxsoftware.com/communityday/

Cheers!

- Randy
