From a tweet that Marcus received from a guy that was having problems with it asking for the reddem code over and over even though he already put it in:

"First, I simply redeemed my code from the booklet. Next, I kept clicking xbox live on the main menu then thats where that "attention" screen kept popping up with the 3 options (redeem, purchase, start trial) over abd over again. Finally, I simply exited to the dashboard, restarted my game then a message popped up saying I have Online Axxess. And boom! Everything is fine and dandy."

So, after you put in the online axxess code, you may need to restart that game for it to register.

...just so no one here (including me) freaks out, lol.

Is this code like an anti-piracy thing?

It's basically the only way you can play online without paying $10 for the privilege.

But yeah, it's only an anti-piracy (or anti-used game which THQ wrongfully equates second-hand sales to) policy measure.... since the code is printed directly on the back of the manual, and will work unless someone else already used the code.

But it's basically a free code, so besides the obvious insulting nature of it, it's not a problem since it's free if you buy a new copy anyway.

Still, for me it's the principle of the thing, and I do think this is one element where THQ needs to grow up and admit that they can't entirely pin low sales on what they think is piracy, even if it's just good and decent people that run used game shops that they are taking this out on.

The guy who contacted Marcus was an idiot. Most unlock codes only work if you restart the game!

And personally, I don't have a problem with this online code thing.
