Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Anyone have got the new Test Drive Unlimited 2. Looks nice and more freedom in with driving around than in Gran Turismo 5 (which I have).

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Anyone try to Killzone 3 demo? Awesome stuff, even has co-op.

I ordered it from base.com, normal price 36£, but 31£ when shipped to Switzerland VAT-free. That's like 48 francs.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

EA Sports is evil........


Just recently installed my copy of Tiger Woods 11.

Generally its not so much about the online part, but i thought i would tackle that first to get the online trophies.

They have a new way of playing online which requires one to input the code on the back of the manual to unlock your 'online pass'. Bit stupid, but fine. I enter the code and it does not work. So i call their help center and the guy gives me various other codes to try. None of these work.

So my problem is passed up the food chain and it will be answered within 7 days.

I bought the game from play.com so that it is in english, and of course i live in Switzerland. I suspected this is what the problem is. I have lots of other games that i play online, so all they need to do is give me a Swiss or European code and i should be good to go.........

So today i get this email from them:

Hello Fellow Gamer,

Thank you for contacting Electronic Arts.

Your issue has been escalated to me and I will be happy to help with this. As a gamer myself, I definitely know how frustrating online pass issues can be. As your current location is in a Region 3 area of the world and your game appears to be a Region 2 version. You may wish to return the game to the retailer from where you purchased it and see if they have a version of this game for your Region.

Should you require further assistance about this or any Electronic Arts game in the future, please visit our web site and review our extensive Self Help Knowledge base (http://support.ea.com). Your reference number for this incident is xxxxxx-xxxxxx

Sincerely,
Samuel L.
Tier 3 Customer Support
Electronic Arts Customer Support


WTF??????????

This is just crazy. Sending the game back is simply not an option. Although im sure play.com would do this, their turn around time is sh*t. Tiger Woods 12 would be out before i get this sorted. Also i want the game in English no bloody German.


Interestingly enough when you go to play online there are 3 options:

1. Enter an online code from manual
2. Buy an online code (CHF12 roughly)
3. Get a free online 7 day pass


I think the whole idea is that 2nd hand gamers have to pay, and that renters of games get the 7 day pass.

So while i was waiting for a reply from their help center i opted for the free 7 day pass. It works fine. Therefore having a region 2 or 3 game and being in Switzerland makes bugger all difference. I have been playing online fine. I also suspect that if i bought a code that it would work fine as well.


This whole situation has really p*ssed me off.



I thought i would post on here first before i send my reply.

Any suggestions for how to word my reply? (i am trying not to type swear words in caps, although its tempting!)


cheers

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

What is EA doing with their online thing? It's an utter pain. Got dead space 2, and for some reason I have to get a seperate EA account to get some of the extra stuff, there's no option to create one in the game, only to login to an existing account (which I don't have AFAIK), and it requests you login everytime you start the game. ****ers.

Why do I need a seperate account? what's wrong with the playstation one?

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Whoa, I'm glad they didn't do this for Fifa 11, and they better not for Fifa 12.

For your problem, try creating a UK PSN account, perhaps?

Here's a tutorial for creating one for any region.

Hopefully PSN doesn't track IPs.

You won't get the online trophies linked to your account, though...

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Hi Swiss Cheddar,

I have had this problem also and been able to get around it.

I have a user ID that is US based, and an ID that is Swiss based.

If you create a User ID that is UK based the code should work.

I bought NHL here and when I entered the code under my us based account it did not work. So I created an ID with my location as Switzerland and input the code while logged in with that ID and it worked.

It also then works for all IDs on the PS3 so after your one time activation with the UK ID you can play with your regular ID and it will work online.

Yes EA sports is a pain with these codes and region locking. Since the games on PS3 are all region free, the codes should be as well....

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Such a pain.

Cheers guys, i will attempt to set up a different user later and let you know how i get on.

All this hassle to get a few poxy trophies.




On another note, i also just got a few other games:


Prince of Persia: Sands of Time - distinctly average, but easy trophies

James Bond: Blood Stone - bit wierd, also far to easy. Better graphics than the quantum of solice, but somehow not as fun gamplay. It was made buy the guys that did project gotham racing.....(weird choice) but that does mean there is driving, boats between levels. Alas its quite crap.


Pre-ordered Need For Speed 2...........should be amazing........release date is March.


I was going to pre-order the new batman, but they are not showing the artwork yet, so im holding out, but will make a pre-order soon.


I am still too scared to get Dead Space 2....


cheers
SC

It's pretty scary, but somehow, not as scary as the first one, first one was a lot more atmospheric. Still bloody good, haven't finished it yet.

Re: [General discussion of] PS3

Not sure when this will be released in Europe, but it comes out tomorrow in the U.S. It's made by Epic and EA and looks pretty fun. Epic games made Gears of War on Xbox 360, which is the funnest game I've ever played, so this should be pretty good as well. Check out the trailer.

Prototype is great fun, you do in it some things you've always wished they'd allowed you to do in games, but it gets old quick.

I bought the original Test Drive Unlimited on PS2 (without seeing any reviews first) and it was a really good racing game. Not too easy. The Hawaiian location with coastal roads made it good looking and the races were not all that easy to finish first. Races vary in length and some take a good twenty or thirty minutes and you could easily lose places just before the end of the race if you weren't careful. So you needed skill, good concentration and patience. All in all excellent, though I'm not sure how much of the old game's DNA will survive into this version.
