I Need a bit of advice here.
I bought a second hand copy of the Sims 4 from one of Amazon sellers, and the code does not work.
After contacting Origin with the problem, nothing has been sorted, I was told to contact Amazon, which I did, but they were puzzled as to how Origin would think they had "spare codes" and, frankly, so was I.
The code does not work because it has already been registered, or entered by the person who originally bought the game, so...EA? I also bought a second hand car and it works...all we had to do was for the old owner to fill a form and for me to fill another form, now the car is registered to me. Could not EA had thought about this and make it simple to transfer the game between owners? There is going to be a lot of disappointed second hand buyers.. Amazon has a few for sale, I told them about this code business, surely they might have known but the person I spoke to there didn't.
The code could simply be replaced for a new one by EA, why not? Why send me to Amazon? (just to pass the buck I assume...)
Last, I now have to send the game back to seller, I am not happy nor will the seller be. I have told Origin that I will not buy a new copy, and that it will be their loss because having the Sims 4 would mean buying things from the store, EP's and whatever else they sell but I guess they are making it difficult for me to spend my money, how nice of them!
Anyone else had this problem or have all of you bought a new game?
