A PlayStation Vita port of the ever popular Borderlands 2 has been promised for quite some time now. However no footage has been shown as to how the game would preform on the Sony handheld. Check out this first look at how Borderlands 2 will stack-up on the PSVita.

While the gameplay looks like what gamers expect from the powerful Sony handheld, there do seem to be some graphical compromises. The loading screens seem to be a bit longer and enemy bodies don't stick around to be raided as they explode in a bloody poof when killed.

Check out the video above for more commentary on the port which is expected to release later this year.
