An unexpected surprise, made my day.

Nothing really too big, but it made my day. I have never played the Borderlands series. So I went on Ebay and bought a copy for like $8.00, the regular edition was advertised in the auction.

Then this came in the mail today



The discs are mint, the case is mint, and the poster is included.

You definitely scored, especially since it's the one that has the DLC on a disc and not codes for downloading them.

Nice one! That's a great game and the DLC are pretty decent too (though underdome riot can be a pain). I personally prefer that to the sequel.

Nice! i try to buy from private sellers on Ebay if i can, you usually get nice surprises. i bought the borderlands 2 collectors edition from a private seller, just the other day and when i opened it, the guy had also sent Fable 2 for free and a hand written note of thanks for buying. i love little stuff like that

EDIT: also, forgot to say, Borderlands is awesome

Yeah, Gearbox realized the code thing was a mistake, so they re-issued the GOTY with a second disc with the DLC included.

So be careful if you buy it used to make sure which one you're getting because 99% of the time the codes will have been redeemed.

Well what a fortunate luck, as a less than 10$ prize for a complete console version of the game it's not that bad. I remember having a blast with that game, enjoy it.

Also I've never ordered retailed games from the mail before.

Your very lucky my friend! I got the DLC by installing the disc when I borrowed the game from my friend. Saves me paying all that money.

Also just to share: I remember back in 2010 one time buying the Borderlands Expansion pack disk (Zombie Island & Madd Moxxi pack) from some store then afterwards I installed it to my console then the next day I traded it back for another game as a refund, without even paying extra money back. Which proved the point that the cashier was an old stereotypical woman who tought of the disk as a game instead of an expansion pack, it was a glorious day and a hilarious fact indeed.

Bah, it's just horrible and boring to do alone.

The drops are bad, too, but hey, achievements for an Invasion/Horde/Firefight mode.

Agreed. Moxxi was kinda fun with friends. But by the time we got around to it, we were pretty done with the game and just moved on.

^^I do have to agree that Mad Moxxi's DLC pack was one of the worst DLC expansions I ever played. Why?

Good deal man, I still have yet to play Borderlands but I do own it, no idea when I'll get around to it though. Only ever heard good things about it though so sure you'll enjoy it!

Similar thing happened to me when I bought Lego Batman a while back. Paid £4.99 for it and when it arrived it was the version that came packaged with a game called Pure. The latter of which is funnily enough yet another game in my backlog.

You did get lucky.

Now you gotta wait and see if the seller figured out what he did and asks for the game back

Wow, that's a bargain. At that sort of price I might have to look around for a copy. Never played Borderlands. Might be worth a go.

You're both missing a treat. one of the best games on the 360, IMO.

Even at £14.99, it's a bargain;

Nice, it's marvellous when people does things like this. I got a little figurine of Chris Redfield, when I bought RE5 from a private retailer a few years back.

When browsing in GAME a few months ago there was a section at the back of the store which was for games without cases. I saw GTAIV on the PC with no case for £4.99. I had been thinking of getting it for a while as I had the PS3 and of course the Xbox360 versions and this would have completed my collection.

Imagine my surprise when I got home and opened the case to find that it was the complete GTAIV which means it also contained the two expansion packs with it as well !
I was well chuffed !

On a side note - I wasn't aware that there were two versions of the Borderlands GOTY edition doing the rounds. When I eventually pick this up I'll try to be careful and get the 2 disk version as I'm running out of room on my HDD. I've played the vanilla version of B'lands, but not of the expansions (yet).
