This review is coming from someone who owned the original Assassins creed vita white bundle. I ended up selling my original Vita a while ago, but was recently looking into buying a Vita in 2017. So I decided to order this bundle and was able to get it NEW. It arrives quickly so that's another plus. And on top of that, I ordered a 64gb memory card for this system because I'm looking to do mostly digital, as that is the best way to go now, considering the fact that a lot of the games are decently priced on PSN now. I enjoyed playing my original Vita and I'm sure I'll be enjoying this version of it for years to come. As far as Borderlands 2 goes, the code worked just fine, even though it was expired it apparently was set for a later expiration date during 2018.
