OP do you have any interest in adding the PS2 ganes that had a 2nd release that added bonus gameplay as well or do you want to keep it current gen. Also the PS2/Xbox games would not have paid DLC since many games did not offer DLC that way during that generation.

I recently got the Batman Arkham City GOTY for the 360. Here's what I found out with it:

- Standard version saves are recognized by the GOTY disc.
- GOTY version does not recognize DLC downloaded from the marketplace
- Standard version does not recognize DLC installed from the GOTY disc 2

Also, I picked up a copy of Portal 2 for the 360 that has a Platinum Hits sticker and a notice that it includes the Peer Review DLC. While this sounds as if it is included on the disc, it actually isn't, and there is an insert in the case directing you to download the DLC from the marketplace.

You also might want to add the Platinum Hits version of Left 4 Dead for the 360, which includes the Survival DLC (which was free), but none of the other, paid DLC. (Although, I just realized that Valve might've handled this like they did Portal 2, and not actually included it on the disc.)

This thread is a great idea, and could save me lots of money with info on upcoming GOTY's too...I bought Arkham City and LBP2 then just days later heard there were GOTY's coming soon (yeah, impulse buying during Gamefly sales will do that)

I actually want to pick up a GOTY copy of mass effect 1. I have the regular one and have beat it 9 times start to finish. But since i'll be replaying them all before 3 it would be nice to have the DLC.

I cant find it for less than about 20 bucks new though. Some Best Buys have it on clearance for 7.50, but not mine. And its not avalible online at BBY anymore =( Im also wondering why the hell there was no ME2 GOTY edition. ANyone think they will ever come out with one? Im kinda boned because i wanted Liara as my main love interest across all 3 games for my main character, and Lair of the Shadow Broker is a very important plot oriented piece of story involving her. Also the only way you play with her I think.

Honestly its BS when a company makes important story related gameplay DLC only *sigh*

Peer Review DLC is free for everyone.

Edit: The reason why Mass Effect 1 had a GOTY edition and Mass Effect 2 for the PC/XBox 360 still do not is because of EA. Newegg has a copy of Platinum Hits Mass Effect 1 for $14.99 :shipfree:

I just picked up Gran Turismo 5 XL and here is the DLC it comes with:

Car pack 2
Racing car pack
Racing gear pack
Paint pack
Course pack

It also has the Spec 2.0 update on the disc so you don't have to download it.

ODST was iffy but I added it because it included all Halo 3 DLC. SFIVAE and UMvC3 definitely should be there because it's the more "complete" versions of both games, IMO.


well AE I guess is fine as that can be bought as DLC (not sure how it appears on profiles and how saves and achievements/trophies work). UMvC3 however is a "new" game.


and if we're getting overly specific in terms of "cosmetic" differences like retailer specific (added text/cion on cover and different upc etc) or reprints.

Tales of Vesperia got 2 reprints. Both reprints are likely the same. They are in eco cases unlike the first print.

many AAA games have quotes etc on newer prints: MW2 has some mention about being the best selling game (I think there's one with dlc ad too), Skyrim has some 10/10 review etc.

Also I don't recall what game, but I had new copies of a game and the case was slightly different. One had the greenish slip covering (noticable when insert is removed) and another was clear. Also the inside of the case had a protruding piece on the inner spine (seen in many dvd cases). Both did not have any recycle like cut out patterns (aka eco).

Just a note, it does not include the "Arrival" DLC. I believe it includes everything else though.

ME1 PH does not include Pinnacle Station, and I believe Bring Down the Sky is only 80 MSP so you could pick it up for free using Bing points if finding a PH copy is a hassle.

Limited Edition includes: 3 Additional Cars - the Nissan Silvia spec.R Aero (S15), Alfa Romeo Giulietta QV, and Lamborghini Murcielago LP640. 40 Additional Career Events - Race in Single-Type events with all racers in the same car, battle in classic and modern versions of the same car in Old vs. New events, and engage in Manufacturer Showdowns with racers behind the wheel of different car makes and models.

On 360 I know that the DLC from GOTY will work with a vanilla version once it is installed, so I would assume it would work the same on PS3 as well.

[quote name='EarthBoundX5']Fair enough, and of course there is a bunch, thats why I figured it'd be easier just to add the PC versions of console ones you already have up. Start simple.

And ya, for SOME games it ends up boiling down to entering a code; but not at all for all. Regardless, like I said, many like to have boxed copies; I for one skipped on the New Vegas DLC sale during the Steam Summer Sale, just because I knew I'd end up buying them retail when I found them for the right price.[/QUOTE]

Okay. I'll try starting out with PC games that also have console versions when Iget the chance.

[quote name='thunder_gamer']There are at least 4 different versions of Arkham Asylum GotY that I have personally seen, at least for PS3 that I know of.

First one is the very original with the 3D Lenticular cover. Though have checked both PS3 and 360 version, the 360 version have much better effect, if you happen to have both versions, check it out. It has 2 pair of glasses included.

Second one is the Greatest Hits version with red label but clear case.
Updated info: Upon looking at some pictures from eBay, this version does not seem to come with any glasses.

Third one is the current Greatest Hits version with red label and red case and comes with 1 pair of glasses.

Fourth one is pretty much the same with the third one, but without any glasses included.

If I am wrong with any information, please correct me.:)[/QUOTE]

Okay. I just added a note that there are versions with varying case art/inclusion of 3D glasses.

Yeah, I have been waiting FOREVER for a 360 Mass Effect 2 GOTY so I can finally play it. Sometimes I kick myself for not buying the DLC when it was on sale a few years back because I thought they would actually be smart enough to release a GOTY edition close to Mass Effect 3's release.

[quote name='troy2007']Should note that (according to Amazon, anyway...and I'm counting on them being right) Arkham City GOTY includes Harley Quinn's Revenge. Love this thread...I see it being incredibly helpful.[/QUOTE]

I'm not much of a fighting game connoisseur, but I didn't think of UMvC3 as a different game from Mv3, just an updated version with all the different changes/balances. Also, I'm not gonna get so detailed to list all the different packaging art. This thread is supposed to be general overview of what games come with which DLC.

Hmm... those seem to be First-Run Limited Editions, not GOTY editions of the games. I'm not sure if I should add those in considering those were limited to first run, and should therefore be out of the market. And considering it's EA, they are all most likely codes only.

I mostly wanted to have games that were re-released with additional content, but if enough people want to, I'll add those in and note that it's just for First Run copies.

If it's for the 360, you can just borrow your friend's copy and install the DLC from the second disk. Then you can play with your vanilla copy. For the PS3, I don't really know if you can do that.

The thread doesn't seem to be that narrowly focused as there's several titles in the OP that don't come with all their DLC. This thread seems more focused on helping people find the closest thing to a "definitive collection" for a given title that is available at retail.

The thing is that there's several titles in the OP that don't come with all their DLC. This thread seems more focused on helping people find the closest thing to a "definitive collection" for a given title that is available at retail.


Exactly. Although preferable to have a definitive collection, as I said in the OP, I list games that come packaged with DLC. This way, people know which DLC to get, or not to get, depending on whether or not they get a certain edition of a game. Enhanced ports may not belong here, but I am starting to lean towards listing Limited First Run Editions, even though many of them would be out of print after a couple months. Anybody else wanna speak up on what else I should add to the op?
