Uncharted 2 had everything on the disc but they had left one item out, the Sidekick Shin pack. Since a lot of items buried on discs are 100KB unlock codes(Unless they are full blown expansions, like Mass Effect 3, Skyrim, Two Worlds II, Call of Duty maps)
Uncharted 2 GOTY came with a voucher for the DLC, at least mine did, don't know if they changed it later on... Anyway, I've got another question concerning the DLC: Is all DLC multiplayer only? If I'm not into multiplayer, is this edition of UC3 worth it or am I better off buying the standard edition?
My package for UC2: GotY Edition was also the same as Rodrigo's. The first GotY editions that came out, at least within the first five months, did not have the DLC on-disc, but they probably changed that after they started making the dual pack.
The same happened with Borderlands: GotY Edition. People were complaining that the DLC came from vouchers, so Gearbox Software changed that many months later.
But another question (perhaps to clarify Trey's): Even though the DLC is on-disc, does it have to be installed BEFORE running the game, or is it already built into the gameplay without the need to install it on the hard drive (side installations)?
It was already on the disc updated to 1.14 I believe. If you go online you will have to update to 1.15. None of the DLC needs to be downloaded though to answer your question. Though if you have an internet connection you will have the option to download the newest patch 1.15. I hope that answers your question. It is great to have the DLC stuff on the disc and not have to download it. Too bad the offline Co-op is still messed up as far as saving the second characters stats. Oh well you can't get everything I guess.
The code is only for online. DLC is on the disc. Try reading prior replies before posting. Thanks! DLC is on the disc so if you want to play multiplayer/co-op offline you can without any code or online connection at all.
