Online code for PS3 games

5 Replies 4,813 Views Created 30-10-2011

I was just wondering...if I buy preowned games, how do I know whether there's some activation code in order to go online that I'll need and which has already been used by the previous owner?

 

Thanks for your help :smileyhappy:

Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

£7.99 per game that requires a online pass if it has been used!

Re: Online code for PS3 games

Not all games have them, it was mostly ea but now other devs are doing them.
You can find out online if it has a code or not, if it's a whim purchase you could ask someone in the shop if it's game or wherever they would probably know.

Assume that if it has a code then buying it pre-owed will mean it has been used. For a lot of games it was only for the online bits anyway but some are locking out single player bits now ~(rage and arkham city have)

If in doubt, buy new as most games drop in price quickly anyway.
