I can't say with certainty here, but I can't think of a single game that doesn't come with the online pass when you buy the digital version. The point of those passes was to try to make money from second hand purchases, not sell the online as DLC.

That's all. Obviously some XBLA titles can be downloaded from the 360 store which may help.

    Dirt 3 is a SCAM.
    It comes WITHOUT the VIP pass which you have to buy for extra 9,99€ to be able to play online...to play online!!!!!!!!
    There is no season pass aswell so in order to complete the game you have to spend another 20+€ for the 4 DLCs.

    Wow, I thought it was a poor deal but even worse now. I continue my boycott of Codemaster racing games, I have yet to play. Cheaper to get the complete edition.

    Its like i downloaded a "used copy" of the game since every new copy contains the VIP pass LOL

    HEY WHAT THE HELL? I bought that game last year digitally from the marketplace using my other account and it came with the VIP Pass, so now I got it from the Games With Gold from my new account and no VIP Pass? Oh well! It's a great single player game regardless. But I will contact Codemasters about it, and I suggest you doing the same.

    Phone or emailing to them. But calling them it will be direct response I guess. So the best option is calling them for more info!

    http://www.codemasters.com/contact-us/

    Please let us know here what happened and also tell them that I contacted to Microsoft and they will check it out too.


    Anyways, I reported the issue to Microsoft and they put it on urgent status it will be sureply checked. I have also sent an email to Codemasters Support so they can check it to from their end as well. There is a mistake on their end and I know it.

    Thanks - this was what I was afraid of. Easy to give away an old game and earn money on the add-ons.

    Phoenix C64 said:so basically, a lot of Dirt 3 achievements won't be obtainable unless you pay extra?Yeah.

    I will be contacting Codemasters about this, asking them to look into it.

    I created a thread here on the game's page so it would be nice to get the conversation there, it would be more helpful for those infected.

    Yeah.

    I couldn't phone them myself, because of the ridiculous charges here in my country.
