Borderlands GOTY edition used dlc codes already used.

I just bought a pre-owned borderlands game of the year edition game and wanted it pretty much just for the dlc. So i traded in my original borderlands and got the GOTY edition, but when i tried to enter the dlc codes on this website(xbox.com obviously) it said they were already used. so i just want to know if this happened to anybody, how can i fix it, and do i have to get a refund or someting? (if gamestop let's me)

Yea, its annoying as hell, but from a business perspective, understandable. Doesn't make it suck any less. Shoulda been more knowledgeable with my purchase. Still, figure it might be worth a shot trying to salvage the damage.

Take it back, they should either refund you or exchange it for you. Only buy the GOTY edition brand new if it contains some sort of code.

I just got the same game used today.  And the fact is that it shouldn't matter if it's used.  I paid about $15 more for the game of the year edition so I could get the DLC.  Since I can't get the DLC I shouldn't have to pay more.  The price is higher because of it.  Now I didn't know when I bought it it was going to be codes I thought they'd be discs but I still feel ripped off

That's the retail's and your fault partially. A little bit of research would have gone a long way to help you here. If you pay more for a GOTY edition of the game and has a code, you need to buy it brand new to guarantee a working code.


If you buy it second hand, it is very very very likely that the previous owner has already used the code, so it won'ft work for you. Then you have two choices, either return it and buy a brand new copy or buy the DLC from the marketplace.


More and more game developers are doing this and the online pass (which you only get free with a brand new copy and you won't obviosuly with a preowned copy) so you will need to be aware when making future purchases.

he gave you the exact same advice i gave you

you stated yourself that you purchased preowned therefore you were never under the assumption it was new

he even confirmed what i said

if you want the codes you must buy NEW

 

when purchasing a game used from gamestop it is CLEARLY labeled

and you admited that you purchased used

ok i know what used means. and when i buy a game that says on the case it comes with something i expect it to be there. no matter if it's used or new, especially when my brother bought a used game with dlc that did actually work. YOU WERE OF NO HELP AT ALL. but.... im still gonna try to get my money back because youre an idiot. ive returned many used games and gotten a full refund. in case you havent noticed, used games don't come wrapped. within 7 days you can get your money back.

not sure how i haven't helped you

but anyways

as stated if you want unused codes you have to buy new

used most likely you'll be buying games forever till you get an unused code

better to buy new for dlc codes

 

there is no answer to get codes for on used games

you can buy unused dlc codes on  certain sites never on a used game

it was a used copy and there was no seal. gamestop policy is that you can return a used game in 7 days for a refund, but you can't exchange or return dlc codes. well my dlc codes didn't have the usual dlc card wwhere u have to peal the thing off to look at it. it was just there staring at me. it even looked like someone already use the darn thing because it was all bent and just didn't look new. i think gamestop was trying to *** me over.

no they come with a store sticker which if broken they will never accept a return unless proven defective and yes its written on their store policy and the corporate site they will infact pop it into a console and test it

if you purchased many used games how is it that you do not know that DLC codes are one time use?  isn't that common sense?

this is how USED markets vs NEW markets work

new

so the gamestop buys the certain popular game  for lets say 50bucks and they get 100units so thats 5000 that is divided between publisher distibuter and developer etc etc with full dlc codes

then sell for 59bucks for 9bucks profit per game

now USED is a completely different story

a gamestop purchases a game from joe down the street for 5-10bucks (20 on popular games on specials)

so they turn around for 40-49dollars  because they are popular

so the store make 100% profit of 20bucks-29 bucks

so then the clerk makes commission  so of course they will push the higher profit game
