problem with Destiny: Taken King on PS4

Recently sold this game secondhand to someone and they have come back and said 'the disk that you sent me does not have the complete taken king on it. when i activate the game i can't do anything as it says that the code does not work, therefore you have sent me a non functional game.'

I have explained that as it's secondhand, any bonus content will already have been used but he's still saying he can't actually play the game without a valid code!?

Not really a gamer myself so grateful if someone that has this game, or knows what the guy is on about, can advise. Cheers.

bs. the game is fully playable without the code. he's just trying to have you over as he probably didn't realise it didn't come with a code.

The taken king disc has vanilla destiny. All l expansions come as dlc.

Most listing on eBay mention that the dlc has already been redeemed.

They've just come back to me and said 'I see your point but you can save the game onto the ps4 so that it will still work on a new account, i will try again to see if it works but you are supposed to have a active code' - whatever all that means!?

​What he said...

Tell him the dlc code has been used. Its a used copy.

​unless you stated that it came with codes, you've done nothing wrong. anyone buying should know if it's not brand new, it won't come with codes.

if you sold it as the taken king then I find that a bit shady. he has only got destiny and it should of been sold as that. the taken king portion is dlc so I can understand he feels cheated thinking that was what he was getting. did you sell it at basic destiny price?

But there are loads of sellers on Amazon/Ebay selling used copies of this game. So are you saying that nobody can sell used as the 'destiny king' part will never work without a valid code?

The code is for the Taken King, the disk has Destiny on it. The way I see it if you used the code then you only sold Destiny without the Taken King expansion. If your listing was for Destiny then that's fine but if it was Destiny Taken King then he has a point imo

easiest thing to do is accept the return.
