Been playing Fifa for the last few years, and loved Fifa 10 espically.

So ordered the latest installment from Lovefilm, went to play online and now you need a code to play online!? Whats that all about?!

Another way of fleecing fans...

its to ruin the second hand market. Dont buy EA games!

It was bad enough them shutting down fifa servers within 2 years of release, but the online code scam deals me out of ever buying an EA game again!

never heard of anybody doing this! sounds like an absolute con! and unfair, surely if they sell x amount of games then their servers can handle this. Sounds like a ploy to get money and ruining game rental as well as second hand!

You get a 7 day free trial, thats what I'm using at the minute.

If anybody has a spare one I would like one too (after roryk83 of course) :)

how would anyone have a spare one? It would ruin their own copy.

Also.... Another EA con......

FIFA11 is advertised as 3+ and an Xbox live game. What they dont tell you is to play online, kids cant, unless they are at least 14.

It also means you cant take the game and play online round someones house, loan it, or use it yourself on the new machine you bought cos your old one died.

TBF MS sorted it out. EA are the problem.

I ended up with 2 free 6 months codes, which was used to create an adult account in a family pack. (Cost me £30 to do)... but the copied over their own accounts and ended up with 4 xbox live accounts lasting 26 months each! X)

Soooooooo..... If you want a free Xbox live code valid for 6 months............

Create an under 14 year old account with a month trial............ try to play your FIFA 11 game..... (which you cant because the EA servers will block you)...... ring up MS...... Complain that you cant play the game....... and they give you a free 6 months code which you can add to your own account instead.

Simples...:D

As csiman says,it's a EA thing,but i never had a problem with it for about 4 years playing tigerwoods online.
Stops people downloading the game for free then just playing online.
