Updated from original story – PS3 Cross save fix is now expected on Tuesday.
After telling us last week to expect the fix to allow PS3 Borderlands 2 owners to transfer their save to the Vita version, Randy Pitchfork posted the following on Twitter.

We will keep you posted with any news if this changes again.
With many gamers eager to use the much touted PS3/PS Vita cross save function, it was quite disappointing to see that it wasn’t ready for the launch if the Vita version of the game.
Responding to the questions aimed at him on Twitter, Gearbox President Randy Pitchford tweeted the following:
Questions re: BL2 vita/ps3 x-save? I’m told PS3 update will happen Friday. Fingers crossed – it’s totally out of our hands.

With a lot of people also asking about compatibility between the two versions, seeing as the Vita version is missing some of the DLC – including the level raising pack, Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2 – I asked Gio Corsi about it.
He told me:
“If you have PS3 DLC items that aren’t part of Vita package, they won’t be useable in the Vita version. However you won’t lose those items and they will be waiting for you when you return to PS3. Vita level capped at 61 (via DLC), so if you come over from a PS3 as a 72, you will stay a 72 but you won’t gain XP and back to PS3 as 72.”
Does that allay any fears you had about transferring your PS3 save?
