I bought the game on ps3 (GOTY) and it says it has bonus content on the disc, that bonus is the add ons already on it.
Gearbox Software's stylized postapocalyptic shooter compiling all four add-on packs later this year for $60 on 360, PS3 and $50 on PC.
Gearbox Software earned critical acclaim and commercial success for the stylized shooter Borderlands upon its launch for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC last October. To capitalize on that success, Gearbox has supported the game all year long with substantive downloadable add-ons, including The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned, Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot, The Secret Armory of General Knoxx, and the recently announced Claptrap's New Robot Revolution.
With the game's one-year anniversary rapidly approaching, 2K Games and Gearbox announced today that they would be collecting all four add-ons into a single Game of the Year edition. Set for release on October 12, the Borderlands Game of the Year Edition includes all four aforementioned packs for $59.99 on the Xbox 360 and PS3 and $49.99 on the PC, in addition to the original campaign. A "comprehensive" Borderlands map will also be included with the package.
Notably, the expansion packs are not included on the game's disc. Instead, the add-on content can be redeemed by way of download tokens included with the package.
The Borderlands GOTY Edition will be preceded by the game's fourth add-on, Claptrap's New Robot Revolution. Due for release in September, the content thrusts players into a civil war between the Hyperion Corporation and the Claptraps, led by the elusive Ninja Assassin. The Robot Revolution downloadable content adds new missions and enemies--including Claptrap-ified monsters--to shoot and loot, as well as new boss battles.
As with Borderlands' other add-ons, Claptrap's New Robot Revolution can be purchased individually through each system's respective online service for $10 (800 Microsoft points).
I liked the game and bought it new, but I can't deny it had some real faults that make me hesitant to buy this. Most of the locations were dull, there was barely any variety in enemies, the customization was nothing compared to what the developers hyped up, and it seems Gearbox tried to tack on a weak story only after releasing the retail game. Anyone on the fence should wait for this to go down in price. It's fun and can be replayable with different characters, but it gets repetitive quickly, and is horrible if you're playing alone.
Redeemed for download. That is really freaking stupid. WHy don't i just go and buy them then? You would save money that way.
@strikezone311 He was asking when the new expansion is coming out, which is some time this month. On a related note, does anyone know if the UK release is the same date or not?
Urgh, I want this so badly but I already have the standalone edition and General Knoxx so it seems like a waste rebuying it :( Oh well, it should be awesome (and worth it).
@GoldFusi0n come on man, you read the comments but not the actual page? the game comes out october 12. even says it on this page, ABOVE the comments section, man people are SO lazy
oh my god! i watched a video on youtube with randy pitchford saying that a new FREE patch is coming out with a new level cap! 69!!!! bwahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!! god i love these guys, *sigh* but you level 70 guys are still h0m0
so when exactly is this new add on coming out i see it says in September but im hearing from people on live that its getting pushed back to October some time?
I knew it was a good idea to wait :D I don't have access to DLC normally, so I was worried I would have to miss the supposedly awesome extra content.
I think this is a great game. Some may say its a boring game that doesn't deserve GOTY but if you had played with a friend and weapon whored as i did or hell even a full 4 person campaign, you'd have had more fun. Me and my friend easily put 100+ hours into it. And yes it does have multiple playthroughs, getting progressively harder. please correct me if im wrong but 3 playthroughs was the limit. PT 1, PT 2, and PT...2.5 hah.
I know I am definitely going to buy this, my brother has this game and I have wanted to get it from him for a while now but this will be well worth the money for all that content.
I wish it came with the add-ons on the disk. I don't have internet so the codes are useless. Oh well...
The game is awesome, I just haven't had time to finish it. You have to use some strategy or else you'll die quickly. I already bought Borderlands Double Add-On Pack that includes "The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned & Mad Moxxi?s Underdome Riot". So I won't even bother with this GOTY addition. ************************************************************ Skullcandy I just bought this game for $10 on Steam. I can tell you now, that's what it's worth. $60 is a waste of your hard earned paycheck. Great game...for $10. ------------------------------------------------------------------- I actually only paid $25 for mine and $14 for the expansions. No where near $60 and I get achievements and play with my friends on XBox Live. I don't even think this game would run on my PC. I'm having a hard time getting Starcraft 2 to run on my PC.
This seems like a good deal, but it's kind of disappointing to me that it just includes download tokens for the DLC. Part of the appeal for me of editions like this is to have the DLC on the disc.
And THIS is another reason why I am avoiding buying games on launch day. I would rather wait for the GOTY edition to get all of the crap that should have been included in the first place.
if you do not own the game- this is a pretty good deal i think.. i just got the game and dlc's a few months ago.. 30 for the game and 30 for the dlcs 60 bucks total so far.. i will get dlc4.. if you wait a lil while- the goty will cost less and you will have a true value of a game.. the game has a few glitches. like getting quests stuck in your game from playing in others games.. if you forget where you was playing- or if that host never brings up his game again- you are stuck with quests you will never clear and crap showing on your hud.. but i think just the main game alone has more play time than fo3 and stalker soc and maybe bioshock together- or dam close.. its a nice long game- value imo.. then add the dlcs. borderlands is as long a game as any 3 or 4 games put together.. imo you cant beat that.. im sick of short games over in 1 eve of play- might even cost ya 60 bucks today and buggy to boot- while being milked for more cash before they ever even fix the buggy game.. borderlands is fun imo.. i cant say its my favorite game- but its 1 of them..
@starwarsnut7591 Uncharted wasn't a co-op campaign, and L4D2 got boring once you beat it, there is technically no way to beat Borderlands. And messing around is so much more fun on Borderlands then L4D.
I'll probably get this. I've been meaning to get Borderlands for a while, anyway, and this probably works out cheaper.
I love this game, I'm only missing a few achievements from the last two DLC's... I hope to get them finished once Claptrap launches.
@MKID232 xbox live has numerous deals and offers that if you do spend a lengthy amount on subscription costs, then you are not paying the full amount. They have an offer right now for $3.33 a month for 12 months. How is that making a major dent in your wallet?
I just bought this game for $10 on Steam. I can tell you now, that's what it's worth. $60 is a waste of your hard earned paycheck. Great game...for $10.
I hate these game of the year editions because they do nothing but screw over and skip out on the best fans of the games that buy them at launch.
For whoever has not played this game... PLEASE do yourself a big favor and pick up this new edition. I easily spent over 100 hours on the game and its incredible DLC (lookin' at you, General Knoxx). Too many memorable moments to count on three hands. It's like someone decided to "re-shoot" Fallout 3 (which I also love ) through the imagination of Quentin Tarantino. Sure, it still has RPG elements, but the game doesn't beat you over the head with it and the FPS-ness of it stands on its own merits.
These late year editions, or even re releases are great because I never got a chance to play these (like Dragon Age Origins).
I need to rent this game to see if I will like it or not. If it is a shooter where you collect stuff then it sounds like fun...if you have to do rpg stuff like fallout then I will pass, but I want to like this game.
Good deal if you dont already own the game or any expansions. Game really is awesome and addicting. Lucky for me though I got the game on sale, and got the first two expansions for free, and got The Secret Armory for 400msp when it was DOTW. I'll just download the new expansion and still have spent less money.
Bah I just bought Borderlands for $20... oh well, I don't think its a game I really NEED the DLC for, but it would have been nice to play it all... All I would have had to have done is wait a little longer. I did the same thing with Fallout 3, i need to learn patience on these DLC filled games! Well hopefully DRAGON AGE does a GOTY edition too, i haven't bought that yet!
GOTY doesn't necessarily mean Game of the Year but more like it sold a lot and in this case I believe it sold more than what everyone expected. Surpassing to see this considering Borderlands was a sleeper hit. I've enjoyed every DLC they've made, excluding Moxxi, and am glad they can bundle all the great experiences for newcomers.
this game has really grown on me was not interested at all when it first came out but over time i saw my friends play it and i must say it's very good might buy it if i have some spare cash...
GOTY that means only one thing poor year.....story was bad and same for gameplay shooting over and over same bandits the only thing that made me play was the weapon system
Bought this is like June but sort of lost interst at around level 20-ish. I wish I waited to buy it until now though so at least I would have the *full* game to go to when I feel like revisiting it.
A great game that has been taking up my free time since it came out. Will have to get the new DLC once Steam gets it. Even if it will cost me $90 dollars total by the time they are done with this one.
