    Just to be clear: the exclusive bonus content of the Survival Pack is in addition to the bonus content of the Sights and Sounds Pack.

    @2 Agree with you 100%

    Boxart is ok, but not brilliant. Not that it matters a lot though.
    Next year will be awesome! Also there may well be co-op (completely awesome!) in the game as when asked, it was not denied.

    Wow, that box art does NOTHING to sell the game. Sure, it’s pretty art, but totally boring.

    Firstly I do agree with you, BUT you guys (I hope realise) its a business move, ND gain a tidy sum for giving them exclusivity for content. Borderlands Randy Pitchford explained it perfectly in an interview once, they gain money like this to use for future DLC and content.

    So even if it dont look like it now it, this could very well became longevity to the game.

    What’s the problem, scattered pre-order DLC around various retailers? No problemo, get the GOTY edition. Less money more stuff! xD
