Just to clarify:
- I'm all out of codes. Thanks again to everyone who wrote in. I'm going to try and wrangle some more out of EA.
The demo is not available for download until June 5th, I believe. There was some confusion that it was ready now. The demo may be available for download now (thanks TimeDoctor). I haven't tried yet and don't have the instructions or anything - so try clicking around until something sounds like a machine gun.
Yeah, they are definitely live, I just finished the download. For PSN users:
- Go to Account Managent,
- Go to Transaction Management
- Go to enter promotion code
I don't have XBL, so I'm not sure what the path is there.
- Update: Neomorph notes: "The code is limited to North American XBL users only apparently." Apparently for those lot, you can try the demo now however. This might have added to my own confusion, actually.
- Update to that update: According to EA, these should be international. Neomorph, if I get a second round I'll try to work it out.
- I got more than a couple emails saying that GameStop had dropped the ball with a preorder and people didn't get a demo code when they should have. I asked EA about it and apparently there's no widespread problem with the program, so poke your local GameStop employee with a sharp stick.
- If you end up with a code by some other means (like sharp stick induced torture), please email back and let me know. There are about five times as many people who wrote in as those who actually got one, so do a brother proper and let someone else have the extra one.
Thanks again to everyone who wrote in.
