Online code for PS3 games

5 Replies 5,238 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 :)

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?

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.
