I placed an order at 12:05 am (11:05 pm Texas time which is their hq). The LE was still listed with the pre-order bonus, but I didn't receive the dlc email from them just the confirm. Also wonder if I will get a LE since it's no longer on the site

Alright people rumor control time, here are the facts: 360/PS3 are ringing up with the codes from Best Buy no problem and do need to be packaged with F10. PC, however, is not printing the code on the receipt nor emailing a confirmation email. The email should be instant if you pick up either console version, so that rules out any issue with delays. The codes are also system specific, so there's no point in having BB print out a code for PS3 to use on PC because it won't work.

Turns out BB did package mine correctly this morning, so the fault lies at corporate and it's entirely possible they LIED to PC pre-orders about receiving any DLC. At this point, I can't confirm this but it is my gut feeling. That's all I have at this time.

Thank you for posting this! I actually went through this entire process while still on hold with Best Buy support. Relatively quick and painless and I was able to activate it straight from xbox.com.

damn finally got my codes via EA chat. Rage ended. Dude that I was chatting with said, there's no more code. I had 2 orders, and he was only able to give me 1 code. I didn't want to twist his arms because he helped me with one. So i ended chat. maybe someone can confirm this? Esp. the guy that's still in queue.

Wait is this stuff in the limited edition the online pass or dlc or both? The guy Im selling it to doesn't care as long as he still has the online pass, I'll use the other stuff if it gets me the DLC to ebay.

Glad you got one. Already got mine listed and might still buy another just because they're going for almost $30.

Its one code, the online pass and DLC are tied to it.

It's the online pass and dlc, but the you don't get the karkand dlc yet. You're just entitled to it when it's released.

I have not opened mine yet but if you only see one code in there and you bought the Limited Edition then it is a combined Karkand LE and Online Pass.

Your lucky WV Matsui as I was in a queue before your post about it being 16 minutes and this Kumar guy started the chat and did not type anything so now I have to wait in another queue for 40 minutes this time. I refuse to drive back to Best Buy today and now I am even more pissed since I am going to be wasting over an hour just trying to contact support. Hopefully I get Jose or at least some semi competent CS rep this time.

I was waiting about 10 minutes before that rep even typed his hello then he just stopped responding as I patiently waited another 10 minutes or so for any signs of life. So if you work in India at a CS Rep Center for EA and your buddies last name is Kumar, I think he may have died at his keyboard.

They never emailed that one as it was inside the package. My local Best Buy still have copies with it on the shelves.

Chelsy told me that my code should be on my receipt.... Ugh. After convincing her it wasn't she made me take a picture, tells me to copy it into the chat box, and that locks up the chat box and it force closes. GRRRR
