@leedlelikeaboss  if the game was bought 2nd hand/used or borrowed  the code/s will be tied to the original persons account and are non transferable nor can they be reregistered to another account

thats pretty stupid. because me and my brother want to play it at the same time but he is playing it on the other computer and i want to play it on mine but i cant because i need to log in to the account its on but i cant because then it would kick him off, they should make it like they have on steam and have a family sharing option to where you can link 2 accounts and then play the other persons game on your own account that they shared with you

 

origin needs to let us do that because im not going to buy the same game twice, just so i can play it on a different computer than my brother, that's bullcrap

i don't so simply because upon installing they'll be asked for the code, which the code is  tied to your account no one else can use them

I went to the site and all it gives me is to read the words off the back of the game menu/pamphlet it gives you. My problem with that is if I don't have the serial code I wont have the pamphlet??Thumbs down
