Don’t mince those words, Randy Pitchford, Gearbox super-honcho. Want to know what Borderlands version to get if you want it looking at its best? PC. It “destroys” the 360 and PS3 versions visually.

“The PC version destroys all the console versions in terms of the image fidelity – assuming you have the hardware for it,” he told RPS.

So we all buy the PC version, right Randy? Not so fast, kiddlewinks.

“It’s tough. It’s very tough, I’ll tell ya,” Pitchford added. “On one level I do like sitting on my couch with the surround sound and the wireless controller, on the other level I mean you will not get a better-looking image than in the PC version of the game.

“And when you’re playing a first-person shooter, the mouse and keyboard interface is still the best way to go. It’s a tough thing.”

The RPG-shooter hybrid’s out on October 23.
