Yes, they fixed it a lengthy while ago. See a couple of Amazon PCDD threads ago. Basically Tony made them do it ;)

And yes, EA games often give you the Ltd Edt if you activate them long after release. Sometimes they even let you choose whether you want the standard or limited edition game.


Yeah, my activation of Bulletstorm PC gave me the Limited Edition. :D

I just bought Bulletstorm last night from Amazon. Entered the key (XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX) I received into Origin via 'Redeem Product Code' and it registered the game almost instantly.

Origin did ask me to pick which version to register between various language options:

1 - Japanese, English
2 - English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Polish, Russian
3 - German, English

I ended up choosing #2 and everything works fine. The only annoying thing was having to restart the game several times so Windows Live could register and update.

Ok need advice.

I have enough points on Xbox (xbox game sale this week) to buy 1 game.

Should I buy Bioshock on 360 or purchase the Bioshock/Bioshock2/Spec Ops Bundle from Amazon for 16$ after the coupon and use the 1 free game for something liek Dirt 2 or Grid

(Can Bioshock be played with an xbox controller on PC? AND can you change resolution of SPec Ops on PC because the demo didnt have 1920x1080)

I'm not sure

From what I've read you have to use gems to buy it, this is what the wiki says about gems...

"Gems Posted Image are the in-game currency required to purchase things from the Gem Store. Gems may be bought with real-world money or in-game gold and spent to get convenience items, account services, or decorative items."


You can purchase Gems in-game using Gold, so you can upgrade to digital deluxe for free. That said... I preordered the DDE and can't recommend it.

TL;DR: Guild Wars 2 is definitely worth the $30 asking price if you're interested in a new MMO that's easily played solo or in a group.


Thanks for the replies. I'll probably buy the standard game and pass on the digital upgrade for now.

Well, hell...had a goofball moment, activated wrong version (version #1).
Contacted EA support; they removed my key tied to Origin; gave me new key; activated me all up w/ right version.

Good show, EA! :D

Even with the 25% off it's not even close to be a good deal. Especially if you have the Just Cause games (and if you didn't JC2 is basically $2-3ish as it's been in so many commercial bundles).

Where'd you get MW2 for 5?
"Just a heads up: we're gonna have a superconductor turned up full blast and pointed at you for the duration of this next test. I'll be honest - we're throwing science at the wall here to see what sticks. No idea what it'll do. Probably nothing. Best-case scenario, you might get some superpowers. Worst case, some tumors, which we'll cut out. " - C. Johnson

We've identified quite a number of titles and added them as a result of CAGs saying "Tony you should carry this".

Lost Planet 2 from Capcom

I'm leaning towards the Dead Space bundle with my coupon but the only thing really, really holding me back is Origin.

Dead Space 1 & 2 from Amazon do not require Origin.

It gave me the limited edition for some reason. I have no idea what that consists of though.

a couple of multiplayer character and weapon skins

This might be a dumb question, but if I were to buy the Mechromancer for BL2 would the Mac version also work on the PC version? Reason I am asking is because the Mac version is less than 5 bucks while the PC version is 7.49

So just to confirm, the Dead Space Bundle does NOT activate on STEAM?

http://www.amazon.co...ad space bundle

I see the DRM is listed as "mixed." So that means it's Origin only, right?

From the OP

Hi CAGs,
FYI. EA Games sold by Amazon will not activate on Steam.


In general newer EA games from the last few years will activate to Origin. For older ones EA has a list of which ones will activate to Origin here: (Note: Dead Space and Dead Space 2 are listed)

https://help.ea.com/...-redemption-faq

If you have a game not on the list and you try activating it and doesn't work you can try this link:

https://activate.ea....meactivation.do

If that still doesn't work you can contact EA support and request that they manually add it to your Origin account if you provide proof of purchase but that's very YMMV and you may need to talk to several reps before you find one willing to do it.

I was told because release was post when the coupon expires, though not sure if that is really the reason.

Ugh... It worked a couple days ago. I applied it on the preview & purchase page and it worked. They must of just pulled it. Looks like I shouldn't of debated between that and GW2.

I just used up the last of my credit on the Mac version, and it activated on my Windows account just fine.

I thought you also got installer downloads. So Origin wouldn't be required?

I've narrowed mine down to the Dead Island upgrade pack. Though I'm still waiting to see what Steam offers for the weekend deal tomorrow. It may be something already on sale at Amazon and if it's cheaper I can hope for a price match.

Spoiler
I'm on Tarnished Coast which is the unofficial RP server. The community here seems a lot more pleasant and laid back than some of the other servers I've been on in the past 6 months.

TL;DR: Guild Wars 2 is definitely worth the $30 asking price if you're interested in a new MMO that's easily played solo or in a group.



Thanks for that!

Still vacillating over GW2. Kind of want it - but I was done with MMO's after stepping away from WoW years ago. And I have a huge backlog. Argh.



LOL same boat.

I don't know what to get. Thinking about bulletstorm... It's easy to activate on origin? Also, I feel I'm buying it JUST because the code discount... I don't think I'll be playing it soon, I'm hooked with Warlock and King Arthur :)



I'm not a FPS fan, but Bulletstorm was a total hoot. I think it took me 5-6 hours.
