    EA To Fans With Invalid Online Passes: “Get Another”

    So Battlefield 3 is using an online pass system. If you didn’t see it coming, a game focused primarily on multi-player, used games taking up unpaid server space and EA using this trick to feed some money off of the used market, then you can at least be attributed to being somewhat more innocent than the rest of us.
    However, among a slew of other problems Battlefield 3 has had at launch, one of these problems that the mainstream media seems to strangely be letting EA get away with, their reputations unmarred, is that often, the online passes included with new copies of Battlefield 3 simply don’t work. At all.
    The same thing happened with Driver: San Francisco and Ubisoft had taken the online pass system away (or to be precise, made it entirely free ) and let the gamers off the money leash.
    EA refuses, however, and have insisted that if players want to get online, they must go to their retailers to receive another. That’s all. This leaves many having to shell out an arbitrary ten bucks to get to the main event without any form of compensation.
    But at least they sympathize.
    “We are aware of the invalid code issue and we apologize for the inconvenience.”
    ''Get another''....
    We are aware of the invalid code issue and we apologize for the inconvenience.
    I Hope this kind of bullshit with other companies, at least they could have done what Ubisoft did, make the mp totallly free. What do you think ? :stare:

    You will lose nothing trying this, call wherever you buy the game, if you keep the receipt there might be the chance they supply you with a correct pass.

    They obviously screwed up bad with the online pass system. Since it was hard to test out before release, they should have each person fax in a copy of their receipt for a free online pass code instead of going back to the retailer which might not have any copies of the game...

    The issue is understandable, the solution is stupid. They need to have a better solution to the problem.

    So, instead of trying to actually solve the problem, they want people to spend an extra $10? That's absurd.........

    Did they ask you for your receipt? If so, then I'm holding onto mine.

    I haven't been pleased with EA the past year. At the start of this generation they had made a considerable improvement, but now they've become as bad as in the past.

    Wow they're really screwing over their fan base now. First they promise everyone Battlefield 1943 and fail to follow through with it. Then they say they'll make it up by giving the PS3 people the DLC early even though the PS3 was already getting it early.

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand another reason why I don't like EA and their Online Pass bullshit.

    Remind me never to get Battlefield 3 used, or any used game from EA as a matter of fact.

    Oh well next year when the next battlefield comes out people will be lining up to buy that one as well and then they will be on forum boards bitching about how much it sucks.

    I cannot wait for Nov. 9 and 12th to hear all the COD and Skyrim bitching.
