If you bought DC Universe Online
on PS3 and decided not to commit to it for the usual MMO lifespan of forever
, you won't be able to recoup your losses by trading it in. At least, you shouldn't
trade it in, even if you find a store who will accept it, or you risk being a super-jerk. Sony Online Entertainment confirmed to Lazygamer
that the serial key included with retail copies of the game is a one-time-use thing, and each disc only includes access for one account. That means that the first person to use a copy of DCUO
is the only
person who can use that copy.
This kind of restriction isn't exactly new to consoles, with trade-ins of every iteration of Phantasy Star Online
refused by retailers due to the unique codes tied to each disc. But it's not common -- mostly because MMO-type games on consoles are so uncommon.
