Ask and ye shall receive — sometimes. Gearbox Software have officially added PS Aim controller support to Borderlands 2 VR! When the FPS launched late last year as a PSVR exclusive the omission of the headset’s best peripheral, which is designed specifically for shooters, was glaring and strange. Thankfully that’s been remedied now. Too bad they probably won’t ever add co-op support.
The PS Aim support is included in today’s latest patch which also introduces some bug fixes and performance optimization. You can read the full patch notes right here for more details. And if there’s any doubt why Aim support was introduced, these patch notes officially label the feature as a “Community Suggestion.”

Other than standard bug fixes the other really, really great thing this patch does is fix the scope. In the base game the scope was just a little screen that popped up in low resolution with awful framerate — reportedly, the screen is now bigger with better framerate.
We haven’t gotten a chance to try out this patch for ourselves yet, but it sounds like two welcomed updates that a lot of people were asking for.
