Hi there, I am hoping someone will be able to help me here.
I am trying to help my son install ‘add-on’ content for his borderlands 2 game. But for some reason it doesn’t work.
We have two PS3 systems.
NB: The following discs were bought from a common retail gaming store found in most major shopping centers in Australia.
I first bought a retail disc that was simply called ‘Borderlands 2 add on content pack’. This featured two map packs.
Following the instructions it said to install the ‘patch’ (on the disc) and then to install the following add on content. Once done, restart the PS3 with the original disc and that is it. The game should find the content.
But it didn’t. The PS3 did however find the content and then it updated the ‘patch file’. It was, I think, a 650mb file.
I deleted it all and then re-installed it all. Still no go.
So i took it back to the store but they couldn’t help me. But instead they swapped it for the GOTY disc.
This disc had only the 4 map packs and characters plus other content. No game disc inside.
Once again I did as above and once again it did not work. I deleted my game data and then reinstalled it all but sill nothing.
I have contacted Gearbox who said that this disc has already been used and it is no longer usable. The codes have been redeemed? Yet, the disc or system never asked for codes at any time.
When starting Borderlands 2 game and going to a ‘Travel point’ you can see the new travel zones but with an asterisk next to the names. When clicking on these a message appears saying that we do not have them and need to go to the PS3 store to purchase. When going to the store it says they are not available and to check back later. (Meaning never)
So the discs were returned and now we are back to square one.
Now I won’t pretend to know anything about this stuff and it has been really frustrating but it seems getting any clear information about add-on content either on the internet, Playstation store or Game shops is really really hard.
My son would like to be able to get the level cap opened to its highest level. 71? And also to have the map packs including craig? I don’t know. Some psycho character.
So I have seen that there is a GOTY edition $40.00 Au, an Ultimate Edition $90.00 Au, a Borderlands Season Pass 2 edition $40 and an Ultimate Vault Hunter edition $8.00 (I may have got the prices skewed a little)
Obviously the Ultimate Edition is out. I already bought the game years ago. I don’t need it twice.
So how do I go about getting all the map packs and the levels opened and this psycho character?
I think that’s it. I am new to this PS3 stuff but am trying my best.
Thank you for any help that may be provided.
