Default Beware of Borderlands GOTY - the DLCs are NOT in the disk !

Beware if you are planning to get the GOTY edition to save youself the hassle of downloading DLCs . Be aware of Borderlands GOTY Edition. It is exactly the same as Borderlands original Retail edition - the DLCs are not on the disk.

The only thing that this GOTY adds is 2 paper slips besides the game DVD and a game manual, one paper slip contains the unique DNF demo access code and the other slip contains a "token code" that will enable you to download all the 4 Borderlands DLCs from the internet and install them. The GOTY DVD doesn't include the DLCs inside it. It's just a normal Borderlands 6.09 GB DVD containing the original Borderlands game. You still have to download all the DLCs yourself from the internet. I repeat the GOTY DVD doesn't include the 4 DLCs inside it, just the original Borderlands game. Even the game is not updated to the latest 1.40 version. You have to download the update patch 1.40 and the 4 DLCs yourself manually from the internet.

Oh how do I know it ? Because my wife baught me a BL GOTY Edition and gave it to me yesterday. Cheers.

Really,really Thank you!!

I'm so sorry that GOTY wasn't what you expect it.

---------------------------------------------------------------
I myself find totally stupid that the GOTY forces you to
download the DLCs instead of including them to the dvd.
---------------------------------------------------------------

BUT I've played a lot of games and borderlands is one of the few
that makes me smile from joy!!!

(==>i'm off to amazon now!!!...)

What about the PS3 version? Do you DL them from the Play Station Store?

they are all download only, i think most people know this by now, its been well talked about.
seems those that want it on disc are pretty pissed an those that dont care cant see why people are pissed an try to argue that it doesnt matter etc etc.
you can buy dlc1,2,3 on disc in double packs here in the uk so its a bit dumb not putting at least the first 3 dlc on disc. an imo no real point to even releasing the goty, they might aswell just kept it normal BL but said you get all dlc for free now. cos thats all it is, plus the demo an map.lol.
anyway i wonder how many more people will buy it to find out the same thing.even tho it does state on the front or back u get tokens for dlc.
