BattleField 2 Bad company 2 DL Vip code?

So I downloaded BF2 Bad company 2 Off xbox live and it keeps asking me to enter my vip code. Was I supposed to get a VIP code when I dled it from Xbox live or not?

The VIP code is the online play code required by the game developer to play online. These are only given out when you buy the disc game brand new. Buying it used or a digital format, you need to purchase this separately. Sorry for the inconvenience.

This is really disappointing.  The digital download on xbox live is the same price as in the store, $39.99. There's no reason why we shouldn't be entitled to the same benefits. I resent the fact that I've been thrown into the same bucket as someone who borrowed the disc from a friend or bought it used.

I'm really sorry you feel that you are being discriminated against or relegated to a "used game customer". In our defense though, I do see that it is clearly stated in the description of the game that the VIP access is not included in the purchase of this game. I confirmed that this was on both the US and UK versions of the game. 

From the game description:

(Online Interactions Not Rated by the ESRB) VIP Access is not included with Games on Demand purchase. Download the manual for this game by locating the game on http://marketplace.xbox.com and selecting “See Game Manual". Battlefield: Bad Company™ 2 brings the award-winning Battlefield gameplay to the forefront of Xbox 360 console with best-in-class vehicular combat and unexpected "Battlefield moments." New vehicles like the ATV and a transport helicopter allow for all-new multiplayer tactics on the Battlefield.
