WARNING: Don't buy used GOTY!

Unless you want to end up paying more for an older game than you would brand new, do not buy a used copy of Borderlands GOTY. The dlc comes on a one time use only code, so you will only get a basic copy of the game, which means you still have to buy the dlc, and you just paid more for a used copy.

I rarely buy used games and this is why. I'd rather pay more and get more, than get screwed.

I thought it had been like that since release, I guess I lucked out buying it used awhile back then.

My copy has the content on a second disc, as Burnout said. I bought it off Amazon a couple weeks ago. All I did is insert the disc and install the content PC-style, then switch back to the game disc.

First printing run had single use codes and the second used a disc format like Fallout 3's GOTY.

yea after getting screwed i bought it new and got 2 discs. Im guessing the copy i got used was a first edition. But i got a refund for the used copy and spent 4 dollars extra for the new copy. Still way better then buying it all online.

I was actually able to return it from the store I originally bought it from, and bought it new at Best Buy for $30. I paid $20 for the copy without dlc. It would have ended costing $60 if I kept the other disc.

Personally I thought this was a pretty obvious thing to have in mind when buying a pre-owned game that comes with codes and whatnot...

If I worked at the shop you brought it from I'd tell you the code would of probably already been used, or if you wanted a refund after I'd warned you. I wouldn't give it to you.

This is why you don't buy pre-owned games that come with codes or MP access stuff. It'll already of been used and you'll just have to buy it off the marketplace.
