EA on Invalid Battlefield 3 Xbox 360 Codes: “Check With the Retailer”
When Driver: San Francisco came out, some copies of the game were missing the UPlay Passport codes that enabled online play. What did Ubisoft do in response to this? They made it so you don’t need the code to play online. That’s called good customer service.
Battlefield 3 on Xbox 360 comes with a code that enables online play. For some people, that code doesn’t work. If you’re one of those people, this is what EA has to say to you:
We are aware of the invalid code issue and we apologize for the inconvenience. Since certain retailers are affected by this issue, please check with the retailer where you purchased Battlefield 3 in order to receive a replacement code.
That’s an interesting solution, I think, though it’s not the retailer who packages the game and prints the codes, right? Right? Hmmmm.
