    Borderlands 2 and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel plus all DLC are being bundled up and touched up to create a new release for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One called Borderlands: The Handsome Collection which is set for release on the 27th of March.

    If you have played the Borderlands series from the start, you will be disappointed to hear that the original game that kick-started the mayhem and madness will not feature in the new compilation.
    You will however be able to transfer old saves from PS3, Xbox 360 and Playstation Vita across to the next gen versions, provided they are of the same family type.
    The Handsome collection will feature four-player split-screen in HD "experience the absolute highest performance and highest fidelity graphics for any Borderlands game ever played on a video game console."

    A 'Claptrap in a Box Edition' of the game was also announced which will only appeal to die hard Borderlands fans with $399 / £269.99 to spare. The reason for the whopping price tag is that the bundle includes a limited edition, remote controlled Claptrap robot.

    The Claptrap steward robot is controlled through a smartphone app and can move in all directions while balancing on one wheel. The Claptrap can also say lines in character and live stream video to a mobile device through his eye. The Claptrap-in-a-Box Edition is limited to only 5,000 units worldwide and is available to pre-order starting today at participating retailers.
