In a move that doesn't surprise me, 2K Games and Gearbox Software have announced a Borderlands Game of the Year Edition.  It will be released on PC ($50) in addition to PS3 and 360 ($60).  What do you think will be included in the GOTY Edition?  You're right!  It will include the following:

  • Borderlands original game
  • The Zombie Island of Dr. Ned expansion
  • Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot expansion
  • The Secret Armory of General Knoxx expansion
  • Claptrap’s New Robot Revolution expansion

GOTY Editions can be a good value for gamers that missed the title's original release.  I know I haven't played Borderlands (or any of its expansions) so this is a good opportunity to experience it all.  The official release date is October 12.
