online pass that comes with Sims 3 for xbox 360

★★★ Newbie

Hello ,

 I am trying to figure out why my daughter can not get online. I purchase the Sims 3 game (xbox360). It came with a "ACTIVATE YOUR ONLINE PASS" plus the 166 digit code. I entered it in and it took but the screen or connect with online people never showed. I followed the steps.

 

1)  press the xbox symbol on the controller

2) navigate to market place

3) select "redeem code" enter code and enjoy...

                                 but like I said I don't see other people online nor do I see a access to click the tab for online.

 

Is there another add-on or is that is how its going to view? 

Also I see that you can purchase a online pass for 800 points is that the same pass that came with the game?

 

thank you and have a blessed day,

Lisa Marie

The Online Pass was discontinued, you should be able to either play your game without or you should be able to download the Online Pass for free from the Xbox LIVE Marketplace.

I know this is quite some time in the future, but I just did this and I can't access the exchange either.

@GAMINGGRACIE2007  I think your talking about an XBOX Live prepaid card.  I think you need to have an XBOX Live gold account (you need this to do just about anything). This is a 5 part - 5 character code you need to activate the gold account. Once entered the clock starts ticking for the amount of time indicated on the card for your XBOX account.

I just bought the game yesterday, downloaded the Online Pass from the Xbox Live Marketplace (it's free to download), but I can't see anything in The Exchange. Seeing that your reply is from three and a half years ago, the help.ea.com page you left the link for is gone.

 

Anyone knows why is The Exchange unavailable? I just hope EA didn't discontinue it for consoles. PC version of The Exchange seems to work fine, judging from its page.This is assuming that PC and consoles don't use the same servers, as I'm sure the PC version of the game is slightly different.

 

Thanks in advance!
