I think this is how publishers/developers will tackle 2nd hand games going forward. I know these DLC's will only be available for Pre Orders but in the very neat future i can see "exclusive" online content and multiplayer only being activated for the first gametag/account that uses it.

Originally set to be published by Activision, the game formerly known as True Crime: Hong Kong was dropped in 2011, and bought by publisher Square Enix, which renamed the title Sleeping Dogs. An open-world crime game set in Hong Kong, the game's full voice acting cast is composed of actors from Asian and American movies and television shows.
Sleeping Dogs will go on sale across Australia and New Zealand on August 16 this year for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
This stuff should just come with the game for everybody. I really hate this sales tactic. It always acts as more of a deterrent for me.
This game will be better than GTA 5 in my opinion because this has so much stuff it has awesome highly detailed and action packed gun fights, martial arts, free roam, it's slow motion gameplay is amazing and the graphics actually look better than GTA 5 so in my opinion this is definately GOTY (Game Of The Year) for me already
I don't think so man, while this game looks good, we still know very little about gta 5, I think this game will only be better then gta5, if gta5 turns out to be another gta4, with no content outside the missions whatsoever. Thats what I hate about it, it's a great game but just seriously lacks side content.
well im just saying if R* decide to actually come out of their hole and say something about the game then it might change my opinion but until then im sticking with this game
