    Battlefield 3 Online Pass

    I know this is quite out of topic.

    I downloaded a Battlefield 3 online pass code from PSN, which is 9.99 dollars. And so I paid and downloaded it. After downloading it, I proceeded in the game and went to multiplayer. and then a message popped out "Online pass check failed...." Please help me in this problem. Is there a code given when I downloaded the pass code?

    Try and rest your game. Fifa 11 did it to me all the time and I just turn it off then back on and was fine

    I did it many times. And also, I downloaded the online code many times. But when I re-entered in the game, it still doesnt work. Is there a pass code given in the downloaded add-on?

    Ummm strange. If you havent got the code in front of you to retype I'm not sure really. If you downloaded it which is usually 100kb of memory it should be quick and easy to install.

    Bf3 (battlefield 3) ps3 Mutiplayer not working?

    I put in my redeem code on my PlayStation Store and on the BF3 store. I called EA they gave me four other codes. One of them finally worked and downloaded.
    I found this elsewhere so maybe contact EA and see if they give you more codes or can help

    Hopefully what marccap says will resolve the issue. Are you 100% positive the game and online pass are from the same region?

    The game was bought in Japan but it is pure English. And then, since the code within the game is from Japan, I decided to download in the PSN. My account is US.

    You have a Japan region game and you downloaded the code on an American account? If so, thats the problem. DLC is region locked and games are not. The online pass is considered DLC. You need a Japan account to download the code and then you will be able to play it on your American account.

    this is your problem. that game you bought is japan region and the online pass you bought is for US region. they don't work together. game and dlc have to be same region. even though the game is all English it's japan region. so you either have to get a US copy of the game to go with your dlc or get on the japan store and buy the online pass from there. good luck

    If I bought it on the Japan PSN store, I will make another PSN? Will the code be saved on the PS3 console and the trophies can be sync in the US account?

    yes you have to make another psn id that's anchored in japan to get that store but it will save the pass to the console and you'll be able to play online on your us acct and still earn and sync trophies
