I've got a couple questions about all of this as well. I pre-ordered PS3 CE from SE a few months ago. I got a confirmation email shorthly thereafter with my 18 digit code, along with instructions on registering my game, i.e. the link that only recently went active. In the email, it stated that I would receive another email when I could register for EA and all that jazz. I also recently received an email confirming that my order had shipped. My questions are:
1. All of the people who have successfully registered, did you receive the email telling you to register, prior to entering your code.
2. For those of you who did not receive emails, were you able to successfully enter the code and access PSN for EA?
Thanks & apologies if this isn't clear.
I registered my preorder code yesterday and did not receive any confirmation until my e-mail came at 11 AM today. The web site just sat there so I did it twice hoping it worked... thankfully it did. I registered after receiving my e-mail.
My friend registered his preorder code over the phone with me moments ago and they gave him his PlayStation code immediately on the web site, with a note saying he would also get an e-mail. He registered immediately.
We were both able to redeem the codes successfully thanks to Shadowedge's instructions. THANK YOU!
I am downloading the new client in the background to be on the safe side, plus how cool would it be to to have 3 FFXIV installs ;) but I won't need it. The Open Beta client was able to handle everything.
Also we both bought from GameStop and the Moogle Cap and Cait Sith Doll items were listed next to the service account.
Now for my question:
I noticed when associating the new service account that it showed only 1 of my 2 character's names (different worlds), and it was not my primary. I am a little worried that they might restrict me to only 1 world and wipe my advanced character... my buddy didn't have any of his characters' names displayed and he had 2 on different worlds as well.
I plan on going with the 40 character / 8 world package but as per the user agreement mumbo jumbo we get 30 days free just for buying the game. So does that automatically put me into the package I don't want? Edited, Aug 22nd 2013 11:18pm by ErikHighwind
