I wasn't sure if that meant all content was behind the code or that some was on the disc and some on XBox Live. I got mixed results when researching the issue. One person said they used the code after expiration and it still worked. Some people said they got two discs in the box and it had all the content and others said they got one disc in the box and it didn't have all the content.
So here's the breakdown:
I put in the code today, 24 April 2013, and it is indeed INVALID on Xbox Live. I have a paid Gold membership (compared to a free Silver membership) and it still didn't work.
The box contains two discs. Those who got one disc may have purchased the original game. This is the Game of the Year Edition, with the ugly red and white cover. Upon installing and starting up disc one, the game searched for me and advised me that I have Catwoman content waiting for me and to please insert the second disc to install the Catwoman Bundle Pack.
All I had to do to enable this was start the game with Disc 2 in the drive instead of Disc 1. Up came a screen offering me to install:
-Catwoman Bundle Pack
-Batman Inc. Batsuit Skin
-Challenge Map Pack
-The Arkham Bundle
-Harley Quinn's Revenge
I could install individually or select "Install All" button.
So a careful reading of the box and examination of the options seems to show that the only thing the expired Xbox Live download code was used for was the animated movie "Batman: Year One." You do NOT get that for free when you buy this game because the code expired March 31, 2013.
I hope that helps anyone out there who was wondering, as I was, what the expired code meant.
OK, what does it make this version superior over the regular one? Batman: Arkham City (GOTY) comes with 2 discs. Disc 1 is the regular version of this fantastic game, and Disc 2 allows you to install all of the DLC (Catwoman Pack, Robin Bundle Pack, Nightwing Bundle Pack, Arkham City Skins Pack, and Challenge Map Pack. Also includes Harley Quinn's Revenge new bonus content which features more than two hours of additional content, new environments, collectables, storylines and enemies) on your hard drive. You can download Batman: Year One movie with a voucher code. In other words, all of DLC are on Disc 2 that you install on your hard drive, except for the movie (voucher code).
So, if you already have the regular version and a nice friend borrows you Disc 2, you will have all of the downloadable content. On the other hand, if you have never played this game... What are you waiting for? Go for your copy now.

Thankyou for reading and have a great time playing this game
Arkham City is, in every way, a great follow up and worthy successor to the kick-ass Arkham Asylum. There are some notable differences but, if you liked the previous installment, I can't for the life of me imagine why you wouldn't like this one.
The driving force behind this game, as the last, is the story. And boy-oh-boy, is it a doozy. We open with Bruce Wayne protesting the opening and operation of Arkham City: a super-prison that covers several city blocks and holds ALL of the crooks and criminals and crazies in Gotham. Hugo Strange, a psychiatrist in charge of running Arkham City and our main villain, chucks Bruce Wayne in jail, because courts and due-process are not a thing in Gotham, apparently. Once inside, Bruce becomes Batman, does some sluething and winds up face to face with the Joker (no surprise there). But the Joker's quite ill, it turns out! Poisoned by his overdose of Titan at the close of Arkham Asylum! And his plan to cure himself is... well, awful, and exactly the type of thing you'd expect the Joker to come up with. Batman then proceeds to fly among rooftops and punch people in the neck until all the problems are solved... well, mostly... actually, not really at all. This is a dark game, even by Batman standards: it's not morbid or emo, but the stakes are very high and you could argue that the Dark Knight isn't handling the situation too well. Too much is stacked against him and we have to wonder if he'll come out all right. It's a pretty gripping tale that takes some unexpected twists. It's a sprawling story as well, that covers a lot of ground and introduces an vast array of Batman villains (some obligatory, some really unexpected) but in a smart, clever sort of way.Read more ›

Even though this game is five years old, I still have a special place in my heart for it.
This is the standard all other superhero games should be held to.
