I've always wondered why they were the same price when the season pass INCLUDES the rally dlc. Buy the season pass if you are going to buy anything. Includes a bunch of cars for 1000 club challenges.
Game On.

I bought the Rally DLC before the 1000 club was released. I bought the season pass later.

And it wasn't for "unknown reasons" - it was official announced that they would close the sales of the content, pure and simple.

Just be aware this may not work. I bought a delisted game through them once and it just gave me $15 credit to my account

That depends if the code was originally meant for credit or the content. Knowing GS right, this might just be credit that they print out. I would call and make sure. Credit is non-refundable, so be alert.

This is a very valid point, I can say I DID buy the Season Pass on Gamestop just right now and it did redeem for the Season Pass and not Xbox Credit, while this might not be the case every single time but for anyone in the future who sees this and will be wondering if it worked for some it did work for me!

Best of luck to those trying to grab this and hopefully everyone who buys it gets the code and not credit!

After you bought the DLC, were you able to access the Rally races?

1000 club is free but season pass includes a lot of cars, needed for the 1000 club.

I know 1000 club is free. But i didn't download it before delisted. Therefore, i haven't 1000 club purchase/download history.

So, i need to know whether included in season pass. If not included in season pass and in-game marketplace opened, can i download this?

If not so, Is there any other way to download this?

I think 1000 club is one of the few downloads which are not locked in any way so if you get the files from someone, I think it would work. When I go to xbox.com and search for 1000 club it turns up, but when "purchasing" it I get a 404 page. It might be in the ingame store, but I can not verify - neither as I can't verify if the 1000 club files is included in the pass.

To my knowledge the season pass does not include the 1000 club. It has been removed from the store and there is no way to obtain it unless you purchased it while it was still on the marketplace.
Game On.

1000 club is not included in Season Pass. You need to play it in a xbox with it.

We believe it doesn't need a license though, just like Hexic HD/any free content really, so your more comfortable option (to play in your xbox) is copying it from another person.

It shoudn't be that hard, try to create a thread about it and offer to send the person a memory unit or something and pay the shipping back to you. I would gladly send it to you if I was in the same continent.

Thank you all. It's time to find out whether my friends have with dlc.

I appreciate Tatl360's offer, but we live on another continent. X(

hehe the best is try to find someone in your region.

If you can't find a person with the content, feel free to tell me. We can arrange something. Priority Mail is not that expensive and I have Memory Units laying around. n_n

I have done this before. I've sent even consoles (brazilian versions) to other countries and I'm happy to have friends all over the world. Someday you can even help me with an auction that doesn't send outside USA for example.

It's a digital file, that content can be emailed. Problem comes to when taking it from the console and to a console - you need a transfer cable to do that.

I can send the file (whenever I have my consoles again, not sure when it will happen) but in the meantime, if you want to do this, invest in a transfer cable.

It's not that easy. A formatted Xbox 360 Memory Unit when inserted in a computer doesn't show the files. It shows dummy files up to the size of the Memory Unit.
I don't feel comfortable in using third party unofficial software to extract the files.
The other user would also need to do the same to put the file in the unit for the console to read.

1000 club should also be like 300 MB in size if I remember correctly.

I stick with the old school postal office method. n_n
It's like copying and going phisically to another person's house anyway.

*If there's a community who maintains all the free content ever available in Xbox Live for people to share I'm totally not aware of. ;)

I do think it's that easy if not even easier. It might be moveable on USB sticks, some games are - and then again some are even playable directly from the USB stick. Since this is content for a bigger game I am unsure how it works.

As said, I'll gladly check then when I can. It wont be too soon though.

Correct. They work. I have memory units dedicated to XBLA games, to videos, to some DLC...
Also the content can be in any attached (to the console) memory unit. Forza or whatever game will search and use the content no matter in which "storage device" it is at the moment you launch the game.
This is also true for the gamertag file, for the avatar items, videos, profile pictures, dashboard themes and save files.

But from this to attach in an email a 300 MB file... You clearly know something that I don't. n_n'
Please share your knowledge.

I'll let you know of my findings when I get to it - currently, all my consoles are packed and tucked into a storage space, while I am stuck on a matress with my laptop and my wii u - on my moms floor. Life's great. wink
