    BY June 2013. As in, "no later than, but probably before." The last of the four add-ons will be available BY June of next year. The other three will (presumably) be released before that.

    The first one is scheduled for four weeks or so from today, if I'm remembering right.

    I will wait for the GOTY version, cause the game overhere (Australia) will be around $90-$100 anyway and then theres the $40 for the season pass NO THANKS. The GOTY version will probably be $50, so waiting 18 months aint so bad, besides theres plenty of others games to play.

    I here ya Blue n Gold. Australian retail prices are ridiculous. You should check out this online store www.ozgameshop.com - they have awesome prices. They are based in UK I believe but the site will show Australian dollars. They have 12 months Xbox Live Gold membership for only $45 just as an example :)

    Yep it does. This is just if you buy it used... although I don't know where you would possibly be able to get it used considering it just came out in the US and Canada today.

    If you'd like evidence, I picked up the game this morning and the pass that came in the box is sitting next to me at the moment.

    Borderlands 2 dlc in four weeks is not one of the four mentioned in the season pass. It's for those that preordered the game or bought it new i think.

    Yeah m8 i use gameshop often, but im still never gonna buy a season pass for DLC. Buying the season pass may save you a couple of dollars, but considering you dont know what your gonna get why would anyone bother?
