    Remind me never to get Battlefield 3 used, or any used game from EA as a matter of fact.
    It's just $10.. buy it off the PS Store easy as that.

    Why should anyone pay 70 dollars for a new game that goes for 60. In which the online pass should work in the first place. Its like flushing 10 dollars down the toilet because you don't need it. 10 dollars goes a long way in the real life.

    Agree and Disagree.....

    I would buy a game used for $20 and than buy the pass for $10 making it $30, which is half the price of buying it new. If the pass comes with a new game and it doesn't work a person shouldn't have to cough another $10 if they promised a online pass with your brand new copy of the game. Thats just wrong...

    i dont think the people posting in this thread know what the hell they are talking about,ea doesnt expect people to purchase another online code if they bought the game new,if you buy the game and the pass doesnt work go to where you purchased the game and get a code that works.

    You may not have to but you still using gas money to pay for a new code to go back to the store. Just depending how far you live to your local game store. Its would almost cost me the same amount going back to the store than buying an online pass.

    Amazed this wasn't an Activision move, but an EA one. Guess old habits die hard, eh?

    So the reason they want you to go to the retailer is so that the store can verify you have legitimately bought a new copy of the game, and not just bought it pre-owned. The thing is people, you are not out of pocket unless you threw the receipt (bit stupid).

    I see no problem with this process. I will ask this though.. How do you propose they do it differently?

    EA. Fuck off and die.

    Good servers cost money. I was never kicked out of a match in BC2 or BF3... unlike Black Ops

    True, the main difference is that BF3 uses actual servers whereas Black Ops or Killzone 3 uses someones system as the Host. I personally like the idea of using dedicated servers as there is no "host migration" issues because of.. well.. any number of reasons why someone internet connection would be slow enough to cause that to happen. For that I can understand, if not necessarily agree, why they charge $10 to go online if you rent or buy the game used. However, to the main point of the OP, if they screwed up the online pass, having to pay for another is just ludicrous.

    That's what I thought reading the topic at first. It turns out they simply want you to contact the retailer for the correct code. Kind of misleading title.

    Maybe EA have a ready supply of codes provided to retailers for these kind of problems.

    Yeah I heard people just had to call Gamestop and they'd supply a new one. Just have to have a receipt, sort of an inconvenience but shit happens. Than again this would never happen if the online pass didn't exist. But it does, oh well.

    i believe thats the case,when i went back to gamestop to tell them the problem with my code the cashier gave me one no questions asked,i didnt see him open up a game to get one,so im sure they have extras.I dont buy used games so i dont know if those extra codes are for this problem or if gamestop also sell online passes.

    Over here (Netherlands) things like this are ruled out by law. The store would have to compensate you by giving a useable code.
