PS3 Redeem codes dont work from Prestige Black Ops :(

10 Replies 4,381 Views Created 11-11-2010

Hi,

I had bought the the prestige edition of MW Black Ops from Amazon, I Live in Australia and as i was told game is region free coded.

 

So with the game i get 2 promotion codes

1 Avatar, 1 Zombie Maps

 

I have entered both codes correctly all uppercase as in the display etc message when i press enter

"The code you entered may not be correct or may no longer be valid. Please check your entries.

 

Well entries are correct and my only thought is that like itunes some codes are based per country you live in. but at least in itunes it states wrong region.

 

Is this the case? whom can i get to check this issue? do i need to contact activision or on here is fine?

Seems like noone cares...:Help:

 

I actually rang the Sony PSN on fri and he stated its region coded the codes given out, so the game isnt region coded but the bonuses within are. Kinda sucks so to be nice im just giving my codes away to some frinds on the motorbike forum im on as its 90% US residents, as the codes are no good for us Aussies :(

i'd happily have them :) But that's totally up to you, yes it sounds cheeky but if you dont need them then i might as well ask.

Hey I believe I know what the problem your dealing with is. Unfortunately I cannot help with out the code because certain codes happen to glitch the server. My friend works for sony and he said that they have been getting alot of complaints due to this bug. I can however send him the code and he can refine and reactivate the code. If you would like send it to me on psn trips_420_pratt and I will be happy to help.

In regard to my original post/thread on here i had it sorted. It was region coded. I bought the game in USA and thus needed a USA address/DNS server.

So on the net there is a hack for getting a DNS server number (those not in the know your DNS number states what part of the world your in, thus there are threads on the net to pay like $5 a month, free trials etc of whatever DNS number you need for whatever part of the world etc also great for getting Netflix on your ps3) So with this placed within i was able to redeem my code as when the PSN did its check of what part of the world im in the DNS number was placed for a USA address, thus it all worked.

 

But for all out there Netflix is great and its cheap like $5-8 a month unlimited movies, i use wireless router to my PS3 and had no issues with it crashing etc.

 

So to all of those out there, if you buy a USA game then redemmiong codes remember what game came from part of the world, so when updates happen you dont muck it all up etc. I place stickers on my USA games as a great way to remember.

 

good luck everyone else
