Borderlands DLC

12 posts in this topic

I've been toying with the idea of getting the DLC trophies after completing the main game.
Going to give a Second Playthrough a shot to try & platinum the main game too! 

I did decide to try the DLC but when I went to purchase them I couldn't, after doing some digging I realised it was due to Sony closing the PSN Store for all PS3 content.
Does anyone know any way of getting access to the DLC that still works, whether it's maybe a Redeemable code etc? 

These are the times I hate my older self for not playing these games & just sticking to the same old same old that I used to play.

There is a physical GOTY edition that has all the DLCs included. You have to watch which version you buy as the first releases had codes for the DLC, while the later ones had the DLCs on disc. The cover states whether you'll be getting a voucher or not, so it shouldn't be too hard to avoid it.


Spot on, I'll maybe keep an eye for that then, much cheaper than buying the DLC from the PSN store if it was still active anyway.

The DLCs should still be in the PSN store on the PS3 though. Can you not find them?

A word of caution though for the vanilla game, the in-game store has never worked properly and only ever has 1 of the 4 DLCs in it (Zombie Island if I remember right) so you have to use the full store to get the other 3.

My copy of the GOTY edition had the DLCs as bubbles on the XMB, and you installed them from those.

I can see them but not buy them. Sony has removed the ability to make purchases for PS3 content, October last year that happened I think

You can still buy PS3 stuff directly from the PS Store itself on the PS3 but it's buggy and takes some fiddling around to get it working.

You can still buy things from the PS3 store, but you have to use PSN credit now. You can't buy things on the PS3 or Vita stores using a debit/credit card or PayPal anymore. You can still add funds using those methods, but you'll have to do it using the web store, or I believe it can be done using a PS4 or PS5.

Ah ok, thanks for the info! 
I'll see if I can do that today, if not I'll just find a GOTY version with the DLC on disk

I've been on the PS3 store & the content is there as I said before, GOTY as well but not matter which I click on there is no place to purchase.
I've added funds to my account but still not able to make the purchase. I can buy the Dr Ned stuff by doing it in game, but there is no option for the other DLC.

Looks like GOTY with the stuff on disk is the only way to go sadly.

So, Borderlands GOTY disk with DLC included has arrived, my new issue is that the DLC won't install.

I install it, then when it goes back to the PS Menu, It doesn't show as installed, I need to do the whole install process again, and again, no luck.
Anyone else had this issue with the GOTY disk? 

EDIT;
Sorted that actually, PS3 menu doesn't register them as installed but when you are in the actual game it's recognised as installed.
New issue is that my character from the existing game is now not getting picked up by the GOTY edition. 
Forever having issues with this game! 😅
Why didn't I just play it new ffs!
