    I won't be playing this for a couple years. I want to play this on PC, and I'm not going through the epic game store. What a shame.

  2. StarGeeek

    Elle you’re a brilliant interviewer it’s refreshing to see someone let their love & excitement for the game shine through!

  3. Thomas Milne

    Poor Elle. That guy is so ugly and not charming at all and his arms are so weak and spindly.

  4. ShionShinigami

    He's a cool dude!!!

    There's not "one billion" guns it's marketing bullshit.
    There's just slightly different variations the same guns then they include that as a "different gun", ie: one has a scope the other one doesn't, or one has slightly more ammo in the mag than the other one but they're still the same guns. Procedural generation is nothing special .

    Vive le Québec jvous aime Gear box 🙂

    The Borderlands lore evolved to a point where we now have arguments in the style of Android vs iOS about weapon manufacturers. I'm a Jakobs, my friend is a Tediore. He says my Jakobs are like a hot dog with only ketchup in it and I say his Tediore are wasteful and frustrating. I mean Tediore, really?!?! 😉

    But will alien guns finally make a return?

  9. gunit2080

    Here for Borderlands, stayed for Elle.

  10. Amigo500

    Looks like one of THE games of this console generation. Was that a skeletion dinosaur? Throws wallet at screen

  11. TheJCghost

    He should have said «pardon my french»

  12. Stitch

    Great interviewer and interviewee!

  13. Dillon Tomyn

    I miss Holly

    The 1 billion guns thing always gets me, it's just if their are billions of different guns and different ways they randomize then surely a random gun has the chance to be better than a rare boss drop but instead bosses are spammed for the same few guns time and time again.

  15. Deetsitmeister

    Is Elle excited about every game she talks about? Seems a bit convenient…

    And if you listen closely everything she speaks about is pretty vague, like she doesn't know a thing about the Borderlands franchise. Anybody who's played would know we've only been on one planet, the main planet, Pandora.

    A British accent and a French accent. The name of the channel should be changed to PlayStation Accent.

  17. Music Matters

    usually I don't watch PlayStation access but my god Elle is beautiful, so gorgeous.

  18. Rampage Razi

    I wonder if they'll release skyrim on borderlands 3

  19. iimzadi

    Elle has a great interview style.

  20. Sean michel

    I love guns

  21. legion

    Too bad they turned into SJW's

  22. Pacroid

    I can honestly say that I never wished that I could travel to other planets in the Borderland games. I have nothing against it in the new game. But it certainly wasn't something that even crossed my mine. So it certainly not a selling point for me, its just a nice feature that I could take or leave.

  23. se7en

    No 4 player splitscreen, the first disappointment I've experienced with this game.

  24. William Santana

    At the end I would’ve said “you like guns? We got guns.”

  25. Black Mango

    A billion guns but only 30 spaces in the vault

  26. Black Mango

    A billion guns but only 30 spaces in the vault

  27. dennis werth

    Flirt less ask more? ;D

  28. Tru Gaming

    Whatever you do people dont take a screenshot. The goon sqaud will be at your door. I will wait for the ultimate deluxe codex version thank you. Will not support a company that uses thug tactics because they got their feelings hurt.

  29. Kody

    Should I buy this game ? I've never played borderlands but I've played destiny 1 and 2 a bunch and I like the genre

  30. Tru Gaming

    I heard that 2k colluded with Russia to put all these guns in the game and the Dems want background checks for any character in the game before they can use any gun. If anyone replies to this…please whisper, no all caps. It might like, trigger me and stuff. Oh gosh, I need my safe space…and a nap.

  31. SeanTheOriginal

    Here's a hint: they didn't.

  32. DevilGearHill

    I remember how this works:
    — Make about 5-6 types of ammo;
    — Make a shitton of samey-looking funnily-shaped guns/rifles/bazookas/whatnot;
    — Make them shoot those previously mentioned ammo types with different ammo required per shot/damage dealt per shot/clip sizes and other randomly generated essentially samey characteristics;
    — Claim to have made a billion guns;

  33. Nathan Williamson

    I like how he apologizes about his French accent to an Englishwoman. That rivalry died long ago, or I hope it has. :')

  34. EP3mentalist

    1 billion guns. 9 worth having

  35. Meme Dream Machine

    If I say I don't care about Borderlands 3 will they send a goon squad to my house?

  36. Mallow

    Tl:dw, modular weapon parts. It's been that way from the start.

  37. Whooves

    This is epic

    Oh wait..

  38. Param Sekhon


  39. Elon Pate

    God??? damnet I want my psycho back…… ?????????????????

  40. Wildfire

    What's the point telling is a game has a billion weapons.

    It's the same thing as no mans sky telling us it has billions of planets… it's a hollow brag because none of us will ever see all of it or even close.

  41. Kig Jesus Eser

    wait, they actually made a billion guns? I thought Danbull just made up that lyrics

  42. RaifSeverence

    Before watching vid: they didn’t make 1 billion guns. They made about 200 and made different variations of said gun. (Having a one version of a gun shoot fire and another version shoot Ice doesn’t count as having two separate guns, but two different ammo types.)
