Was it not sealed? Where'd you get it from?

bought it off ebay so no, not sealed

disc doesn't say GOTY on it, but you should have a cardboard insert with a code on it to download additional maps
iff it's 2nd hand, the code may have already been used

It should say GOTY edition on the disk

definitely this one, he already has modern warfare 2 . he specifically wanted the game of the year but said second hand was ok, now i dont see any difference if all it gives extra is a code

The code is for the multiplayer maps.

Without the code the game is the same as the normal edition.

You can download the maps from xbox live but at a cost.

yes, but the code gives you extra maps in the online multiplayer, otherwise you have to pay for them

ah right, i feel ripped off now as could have paid a lot less for the normal edition. just assumed it was like fallout 3 where you get extra quests or something....

Thats ebay for you.

Request a refund if they stated it was game of the year editon and didnt mention the codes had been used.

Its quite a bit of difference, I picked up COD 4 from the for sale/trade section on here for £11. I bet you paid lot more than that.

Ask for a refund.

i purchased 2 wednesday from gamestation both goty and sealed
it says nothing on the disc and it has no code either

so really should just have bought the normal one then

thing is i already paid for extra maps so i didnt question it as i didnt need code
i was looking and they had normal game second hand £19.99
and new goty for £22.99 so just thought for extra £3 i would have new

Makes no difference you are still going to have to pay for the maps if (hubby wants them) as they no longer are available for free via redemption as they stopped giving away codes to redeem ages ago . Terrible scam if you paid more for game of year edition but they got away with it.

Edit having just checked again it seems to be resolved and they have more tokens now.

guess i should have researched before i bought, aaahhh feel so mad now

The code can only be used once so I guess the seller probably used it already.

I may have an unused code from my GOTY at home if you do not get one off this guy (I will check and confirm later) you can have it if I find it.
