The collectors edition skins? .. god damned. they should have included all the ones you can buy at the moment, but not these... i'd loved for these to stay exclusive to the actual people who payed more for it

Why can't they just wait until they release every DLC pack, and then release a GOTY edition? Or they want to release another one with every DLC? Whaaat.

You could still buy it cheaper separate if you utilized all the deals IMO or close to the price, but I guess it's nice to have it all in one place as well. Can't imagine there will be a lot of ppl left that havent played this year after release anyhow=P

@1 I'm not sure why you're suprised at this? I mean it has been done many times over for various games. You pay the extra cash to get the content at the time of release, those people with some patience wait until a deal like this occurs. These companies look to see how many suckers, including you, will buy the content right off the bet, making you feel like its exclusive, then after quite a while they'll bundle it all and see how much incremental cash from the deal.

@11 buying the collector's edition doesn't make a person a sucker -_- In fact, many people who bought the highest edition ($150) ended up tripling their purchase by reselling it (several went for $500, and a lot more broke $400).

If you buy a collector's edition and expect the in-game items to be exclusive to you forever, then yes you're fooling yourself. Same goes with pre-order bonuses. More than likely, they will eventually be released for everyone.

Aside from that, I would argue against your statement. "People with some patience" - By that, I assume you mean cheap asses who don't mind always being 1+ years behind or people who can't afford to buy a lot of games new.

You can claim that waiting for a GOTY edition makes you "not a sucker" all you want...but in reality, its the same as waiting for blu-ray to come out before you buy a dvd player, or waiting for the Xbox One to come out and finally buying a 360. You're just being cheap and behind the times (or you're broke, and I don't blame you for waiting).

The part I don't get, is how being a year or more late to the party in order to save a few dollars gives someone the impression that they're better than other people -_- Apparently broken logic works just fine for dumbasses. It's probably the same group of people who bitch about a game's community being "dead" because everyone else has already moved on to newer games by the time they make their "smart" purchase.

I'm glad I'm getting thumbs down, that just proves I'm a smart guy living in a stupid world. Why does buying a sub par game (remember all the bugs and glitches Borderlands 2 had at launch) for full price at launch make you cool or make you better than a person who pays a fraction and gets a game that works properly. As far as I'm concerned the person who waits and saves some dough and gets a game that works the way it was intended to work is the smarter person. I'm not sure how anyone can feel differently.

Also @16 you make it sound like I'm cheap for not buying a game on release day...I got enough money to buy ANY GAME AT ANY TIME, BUT I CHOOSE TO WAIT. Why? Because games almost never work properly on release and why pay $60 when I can wait and get 2 games or 3 games or even 4 or 5 games for $60. Paying full price doesn't make you makes you fucking stupid and that's all there is to it. Sure, it's a free country so do whatever you want, but don't act like you're doing something smart by paying full price.

So, if the second vault hunter upgrade is coming a month earlier than the GOTY, why can't they just bundle them? Well, I'm glad I didn't put much time into this game yet, my OCD loves GOTY editions.

@18 - I think it all depends on how badly you want to play the game and if you have any other games waiting to be played first. I picked up BL2 when they had it on-demand for $10, plus the DLC was all half off. So I have everything that is included in in GOTY edition, and I spent much less than $60.

Game of the Year edition... coming out just in time for the second wave of DLC to be released and not included on the disc starting with the one featuring TK Baha. Ach well, at least those that waited will get MOST of the dlc included for their patience. I personally got the season pass day 1, ive no regrets.

@ 18 the ultimate deal was to buy game near release for over half price, then use the free BL2 season pass available of the argentine marketplace, now lets stop mocking each other and just enjoy the remains of the lifespan of the 360. PEACE

Count on GBX to screw with GOTY editions, I mean nothing says cash grab more than releasing this, than releasing even more DLC which probably won't be included... What's the point of doing that? Oh right I've already answered my own question, CASH GRAB. BL2 was a pretty sweet game, but the way the DLC was hyped up GBX didn't deliver. Now add this to the mess of issues... I've learned my lesson for sure.

It's nice you're getting all of that DLC... but wouldn't it have made more sense to wait until ALL of the DLC is released before making a GOTY Edition? I mean, we still have another level cap on the way, as well as three Headhunter add-ons, and who knows how many DLC skin packs...

@16 I don't know where to begin, I never claimed that waiting for a GOTY edition makes you "not a sucker", but people like #1 shouldn't complain when the same content is released as part of a GOTY a year later. His choice to pay full price, others have other games to play and can stand to wait for better deals. I hate to break it to ya, but that's kind of how the economy works.

Sometimes people truly are suckers, like the supposed dipshits who paid upwards to $500 for collector's editions. I have no sympathy for them either.

Look, the point is don't bitch about content you think should remain exclusive just because you bought it at full price upon release. All I ever see on the majority of stories related to games, consoldes, release dates, etc. are people saying how much their wallet is going to get raped, or people wishing they had money between Sep-Nov, etc. So are they dumbasses too? Because they will most likely wait for a deal? Dumbass? How's that for broken logic?

Didn't they already release a mini version of this with some of the DLC? If so it wouldn't be crazy to assume that after all the DLC is out they would release a complete goty edition! It's good for people who waited and I enjoyed it when I did it but I still feel that you should get something extra if you buy the DLC when it's released. Though I suppose gearbox need to make some of that colonial marines money back somehow!!

Well it's about time! Now I don't have to surreptitiously download all the DLC on my roommates Xbox while he's a PAX and try to play it all before he gets back. It also means I don't have to continue borrowing his game.

I grabbed the GOTY version of the first game, and it was so worth it. Here's hoping that future DLC doesn't add more Achievements.

You were privileged for more then an year. What else do you want sir?

I know you are loosing the vip status, it has happened to me before also but I am okay with it. You should know, It's pretty sad for people who can't get pre-order or collector's edition stuff due to different package released worldwide, It happends to us tons of times. You are probably from a leading country that's why you don't know about such things. I always appreciate such kinds of deals

@1 There's a reason people paid more for it, they didn't wait. If you don't want to wait to buy specific pieces of the game why should everyone else lose the chance at obtaining them for good? You don't exclude people because of a stupid pre-order bonus.

It was obvious there was going to be a GOTY version, they did it with the first one as well..

I don't understand all the bitchyness though, So what, You've waited a year or so to get the "complete" version, that's your choice. I got it on release day and wouldn't have had it any other way.. The DLC has been fantastic, The amount of support this game has and still gets is amazing and they still ain't done with it.. With another level cap and 3 more mini DLC packs coming and I still reckon they will do more (moon base anyone)..

Better late to the party than not at all.

@12 I bought the first GOTY and mine came with DL codes, not a second disk.. :S I'm in Canada, I wonder did Europe get a disk with theirs? I would of totally preferred that :(

I'll grab this at some point. Probably not right away with a bunch of games I want coming out around that time.

@42 I know -some- versions of Borderlands GOTY 1 came with codes and some came with 2 disks (even in Europe - I'm in the UK) but I don't think it was exclusively territory based, maybe it was 'run' based i.e. that when they did subsequent pressings as they sold more copies they decided to put all dlc on a 2nd disk; amongst my housemates we ended up with both - 3 copies of GOTY and 2 had 2 disks, 1 had codes. I really hope that this time it's all on the 2nd disk fom the first pressing that way we only have to buy 1 copy for our household to get all the dlc (we all aready own the 'vanilla' BL2 but none of the dlc cos we were waiting for this version). I guess we'll get one copy between us next week and see what happens...

See I like waiting on certain GOTY edition cause for me it's fun havin everything out already and goin shithouse but the drawback no one to play online with cause most have moved on and if they are online there at a high level when your Dickinson around with shit guns and level 5 but hey it's what I dig,I know for most they don't like it and that's cool I did the same with...

- Batman Arkyhsm City GOTY (which I played like 5 times and I'm dyin to play more)
- Rage (again a lot of fun just no time to play)
- Battlfield 3 (yes you guessed it not much time to play but fun to play online!)
- Red Dead Redemption (great game havnt finished it but love the story)
- LA Noire GOTY is the only one I completed so damn addictive and I'm only like 3 achievments away from complete ting totally

Wish I had more time to plat but 2 jobs,social,side work,running around manhattan grrr I wanna play these dammit lol
