    Help?

    Wasn't too sure about posting this here but I figured I would.

    I went to EBgames today and asked for a copy of Battlefield 3 for the Xbox 360. I got the limited edition for $80 & got home to notice all the codes didn't work. Not the guns, not the maps, not the online pass and now I can't play online. I went back and they pointed out that it was a pre-owned copy and the codes have a 50% chance to work depending if the previous owner used them or not, I never even asked for a pre-owned copy and now I can't return the game because I'm lacking my receipt, all I've got on it now is the single player.

    What I'm asking is does anybody have a spare code or any idea how I can bypass/get a free pass code? I just don't think it's fair to sell me a pre-owned copy of limited edition when I didn't ask for a pre-owned copy and I can't use any of the limited edition content.

    Thank you in advance.

    Well if the product was advertised as new and EBgames sold it as new, explain the situation to them and demand a replacement. Your story doesn't make sense hwoever in my opinion:

    1: Limited Edition is no longer sold. If this is the way they identified it as a 'pre-owned' game, then ignore #2
    2: How would they know it is a pre-owned game?
    3: $80 is extremely expensive for a pre-owned game. You can easily buy it for half the price completely new.
    4: Just doesn't make sense.. how could you have bought a copy not seeing it was preowned.

    If you end up being stuck with the invalid code, and EBGames is shitty enough to not give you a replacement or refund, i'll help you out more. It was a bit stupid of you to throw away the receipt (look in the trash?), but if all else fails, dispute the payment with your credit card company if you paid with a credit card. Let me know if any of this works ^^.
