[PRICING ERROR] Borderlands 2 Season Pass PC - £7.99 Steam

69
Found 1st Sep 2012
Error with pricing because its supposed to be around 20 quid i think.

Grab it while ye can. If it gives you an error about owning the game just do a gift transaction and throw it in your inventory for the time being and redeem it when the time comes




DESCRIPTION OF DLC:

Gearbox Software has ambitious plans for Borderlands 2's post-launch downloadable content. They intend to release four sizable DLC packs for the game. Players will have the option to buy all of these add-ons at a reduced rate.

Each DLC pack is described as a "content campaign." Players can expect several hours of gameplay, new characters, and new locations in each. All four of the campaigns should be available to gamers by June 2013, roughly a period of nine months.

These add-ons will retail for $9.99 apiece on the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. The Borderlands 2 Season Pass, which grants you access to all the DLC as they're released, will cost a mere $29.99. That's a nice discount provided that you were planning to get all of the game's DLC anyway.

GAMESPY REVIEW - goo.gl/cChO6

Releasing between September 2012 and June 2013, the packs will cost $9.99 (£6.30) on PC and PS3 and 800 Microsoft Points (£6.80 / $10) on the Xbox 360.

The DLC can also be purchased as part of a discounted Season Pass, which can be picked up for $29.99 (£18.90) on PS3 and PC, and 2400 Microsoft Points (£20 / $30) on Xbox 360.

European PC and PSN prices are still to be confirmed.

Bought thanks!
Won't let me buy it as it don't have Borderlands 2 on Steam (Have pre-ordered with Game).

Can I buy as a gift and then gift it back to myself once the game is out?

Yep that's what I have done just bought it as a gift
Thanks
Thanks, it's now in my Steam inventory, with an option to "Add to my game library", which I'll do once the game is out
Cheers dude. Bought pass for a mate too. Heat added
ordered, thanks
Do Steam typically honour price errors?

I can only ever remember one, it was during a sale where Terraria was 75% off instead of 50%. They honoured that.
Should do. Once it's bought, it's bought. I remember Dead Island going really cheap in one of the sales by accident and people managing to pick it up. Went back up to normal price about 15 minutes later

I know they can wipe things from your inventory, but I don't think they will, if anything they'd refund you.
Damn, trying to buy it from Norway but the price is in euros, and is more!

"By clicking "Purchase" you agree that Valve provides you immediate access to this digital content and that therefore any possibility of a withdrawal from this purchase ends – the purchase is final."
Thanks OP!
Nice find

Hot added thanks
If there any info that suggests this price isnt actually intentional?

Not 100% on that one, but the intended price for US is $29.99 so why would there be such a vast difference for people elsewhere?

Not to mention £8 for 4 supposedly beefy DLC packs seems a bit too great

They're meant to be $10 each or the season pass for $30 - so it's unlikely that the £7.99 price is correct.
how can you say it's a pricing error when a) it's £7.99 on both the Steam website and also on the Steam app and b) it does clearly state, to quote

"Can’t get enough Borderlands 2? Grab the Borderlands 2 Season Pass and get access to four downloadable content packs for Borderlands 2 at one discounted price:"
Wow, very nice deal OP, I presume they will be £7.99 each and someone has mistakenly labeled the bundle as that price.

The whole idea behind buying a season pass is that you're getting better value than if you were to buy each DLC pack seperately, hence why they describe it as "at one discounted price".

Also, as Asura and I have already said this is most likely a pricing error. Although I'd love to be proven wrong if it means the game companies are finally wanting to give us some great deals.
I cant purchase it!!

Add it to your inventory instead purchase for myself
They've announced the US Steam/PSN price as $29.99, and the worldwide Xbox price of 2400 MSP ($30/£20)

So this is definitely a pricing error. People should do a quick Google search before saying it's not a misprice
Also the DLC for the original game was approx £7 for a single DLC pack. This is definitely a misprice. When they (2K and Gearbox) announced it they said it'd cost £19.99 on steam.

Thank you OP this is an amazing price. Now to punch all my friends I'm playing with to grab it.

"Releasing between September 2012 and June 2013." I bet it's an experiment to see if people will pay for stuff they won't get for 9 months.
Thanks, bought as a gift.
In Games--> Manage gifts I can now add it to my library once I activate the game (I HOPE)!!!
I am trying to buy it and I'm getting errors. Not the one when I was trying to buy it for myself.

"There seems to have been an error initializing or updating your transaction. Please wait a minute and try again or contact support for assistance."

That is when I try to add to my inventory to gift later.

*Edit*
This was not cause by steam invalidating this price, it was caused by my end, you can still buy it for this price.

Lots of game do this already. Gears of War, Max Payne, LA Noire all have season passes.

Same with Battlefield premium too
Damn, I've only got 47p left in the bank.

I hope I can deposit some money before they correct the error.

I know, but not 9 months in advance. LA Noire's dlc was only 1 to 2 months.
Purchased,
Even though I will get the first DLC free its still a bargain for the other 3 (kinda like 3 for the price of 1)
Bought it, this and pre-ordering the game cheap means I got the game and all the DLC for a smidge over £30
bought one to trade, thanks
Anyone know were to get a cheap version of the game itself for steam?
