DC Universe Online Can Not Be Resold Once Activated

DC Universe Online Can Not Be Resold Once Activated
02/15/2011 Written by Paulmichael Contreras



DC Universe Online
released to nice reviews and even better sales. But it looks as if the only sales that will allow gamers to play the game will have to be new, unactivated copies only.

The folks over at Lazygamer had a hunch regarding using this game on a second PS3 system, and it turns out their worst fears were true. Sony Online Entertainment recently elaborated on how the game’s physical disc is tied to the user’s account:
Once the PSN key has been consumed with a disk it cannot be resold/replayed with the second user adding a sub – only the original consumer can use that acct…Disk and account are one.
You read that right, reselling this disc after activating the online key that it comes packaged with will turn the disc basically useless to anyone but the original key redeemer. This also includes other accounts on the same system, though a clarification has yet to be made regarding sub accounts on the original master PSN account.

This is disgusting IMO. Its bad enough you cant resell your title, but to force a single home to buy 2 copies is a complete disgrace. If any other industry tried this there would be uproar, why do gamers just have to take it.

We don't have to take it we as gamers can show are power in this industry by simply not buying it, so I urge gamers to use that power to send a message to game devs, publishers etc.

Even better, I would consider any purchase made without prior knowledge of this to be false advertising. This should go to court with gamers demanding their money back. Winning that would at least make it mandatory to have this information available prior to purchase. That way we could avoid any such title.

I doubt that would happen though.
