No code on the back of my manuel for online franchise !!!!!!!!!! WTF!!!!!!!

So i go on xbox live and see the servers open August 14th, ok thats alright i can wait. I go in the online franchise and see that u need to redeem the code on the bak of the manuel to use it, ok wateva will only take me a minute or 2. So i open my case and get the book out and turn it around and nothing..... NOTHING!!!!!!

So im thinking only in the States do u guys get the codes cause im in Australia and i can tell i aint got nuttin.

guess i gotta pay 800 points........

DAMN YOU EA!!!!!!!!!

Madden 10 is a good game though :)

Yeah i have the game in Australia too,
Its advertised at the back so its def included.

Current theories are that you cant access it until the servers are turned off aussie time tommorow morning i believe we shall see

I now take that back i dont think we have a 16 pin code!

mmmm something is wrong eh!

It is advertised at the back so we will get it one way or another

There is a 12 digit code on the back of my manual, and a 13 digit code on the second last page, which is same as the 12 digit code beside the last digit.

I'm Australian too.

That makes me feel better. I was worried it was a US only thing. That would be stupid but youd never know. There would be no way id pay and give ea that extra money.

#8cnadaPosted 8/12/2009 8:22:10 AM
Its worrying though !!

Cos there isnt a 16 character code to be found anywhere

Hmm, maybe this offer is only valid in the US or Canada? Maybe the rest of the world has to pay 800 MS points?

Also, EB better let me return this and not think I used the code. As I said the only thing that looked like a code was 12-13 digits. I also bought the game in shrink wrap and unopened, so I didn't lose any leaflets or anything with the code.
