PostSubject: how to register a pre-owned copy    Sun Dec 28, 2014 7:11 am

I can get a copy of the sims 4 for free but it has already been registered to a user who has since gone back to the sims 3 and wants to give me their copy. Just wondering if anyone knows how I can register a pre-owned copy if not I will just wait a bit for another sale Smile

I am not sure but I think you would have to sign in as that person's username and use that account to play and share your creations.


I had a friend that was given TS3 from a friend that didn't want it and that is what she had to do.

I believe BG is correct.  You would have to use their account to play via Origin. It is darn near impossible to reach the Help Center right now. But you could try asking them for advise. In the meantime if you find a new /unregistered copy for cheap go for it!

Well I got in touch with the help center but EA are sticking to their EUA and DRM policies where the purchaser does not actually own the game but rather "rents" its use. They wont transfer the registration from my brothers account to mine, all they offered to do is merge the accounts which would mean only one of use could use the account at a time so no help there lol. I am disappointed I have sent a lot of money EA's way so has my brother and I expected a little more customer service. I could use my brothers account but that isn't something I wont to do as a builder and that leaves my brother with an 80 dollar game he has no interest in and me questioning if i am going to bother with #4 at all. I feel a little riled at the moment Sad
