Microsoft Drops a Deal on Borderlands 2


Gamers who preorder Borderlands 2 from the Microsoft Store will get a $10 coupon and 1600 free Microsoft points.

So you’ve decided that you want to head back to Pandora for a second round of hot shoot-and-loot action, and the machine you want to take that ride on is the trusty Xbox 360. Having reached that point, you might want to direct your attention the Microsoft Store, where they’ve put together a pretty sweet deal for anyone who ponies up a preorder on Borderlands 2.

From now until the game launches on September 18, anyone who preorders the game from the Microsoft Store at the regular price of $59.99 will receive a coupon for $10 off your next purchase, as well as 1600 Xbox points, enough to buy two (I think) Borderlands 2 DLC releases when they come around. That’s on top of access to the Borderlands 2 “Premiere Club,” the standard preorder bonus package that includes the Gearbox Gun Pack, a key to a “Golden Sanctuary Loot Chest,” the Vault Hunter’s Relic and the Mechromancer character class that will only be available post-launch via paid DLC.

Some terms and conditions apply – limit one per customer, coupon cannot be used for the purchase of Borderlands 2, that sort of thing – but if you’re going to buy it for the 360 anyway, this looks like an awfully good way to go about it. Get all the details at
