Does the VIP pass included in new copies still work?

20 posts in this topic

If I'm not wrong when I boosted it managed to get the VIP pass from a new game/sealed game to work. It was just a few months ago, so it should still work, even if the date says that it already expired.

it worked for me - i found a new copy on ebay, the guy i bought it from said it was new even though it wasnt in its original shrink wrap. I decided to take a punt on it and thankfully the code was there and worked. Hopefully you can get lucky in finding a working vip pass.

I had the opposite happen. I had a sealed copy sitting in my backlog for the longest time. Finally opened it this year only to find the VIP code doesn’t work when I enter it. Not sure what I’m doing different to you guys but it didn’t work for me

 

EDIT: For some reason the code worked for me after trying it again. I think it must have been fixed in the store. Can confirm sealed copy code works atm

i bought a sealed copy a few months ago. according to the slip the code was expired in 31/03/2016 but i tried it anyway and it worked! so there is hope. I would imagine most sealed copies should still work. Just be careful as on ebay I noticed from feedback on a few sellers that are selling this game that they are resealing games to sell so just make sure the seller is trusted.

From what I've been told from a friend that works at Sony bend, their codes last 10 years after release before the code is no longer valid, regardless of expiration date on the paper

I've done that a few times for old PS, Nintendo codes and Xbox games that said the DLC codes or whatever expired ages ago and they still work. Think they say that in case the DLC or whatever is ever taken down just in case.

That would be awesome if it's true :) ... i didn't want to test it though, earlier this year i thought about buying LittleBigPlanet 2 Extras Edition but hearing the dlc code expired at 1st Jan 2017 i cancelled the deal 😅

I've used codes years after the paper has expired so I think you'll be fine

I have the digital copy with VIP pass, and I can get online with my digital copy, but cannot download the dlcs since they are delisted.  I have already logged most trophies (except challenges), completed all online trophies on main game, and I am ready to do the dlc stuff.  So I bought the complete edition disc (used) so I could use my VIP Pass I already have used with my digital copy.  After numerous tries, and deleting game data and all that, the digital VIP Pass that came free with PS+ does not work with my complete edition disc.  My only theory is that since I have "used" my VIP Pass with the digital version, I need another VIP Pass that's not used yet in order to work with the complete edition.  If anyone has gotten this to work please let me know the steps you performed, and I can test with mine.

 

So I will be in pursuit of a sealed copy.  Right now ebay only has normal version, not complete edition, for sale as a sealed copy with VIP Pass.  Will this work, or do I have to wait for a sealed copy of the completed edition ?

Wait... What!?

I’d all but given up on the online trophies for this game, as I have the Complete Edition, but no online pass (bought second hand).

 

I may now have to see if I can get hold of a sealed version!

thats odd that it wouldnt work with your disk copy? I bought the complete edition (unsealed with code used) and then a sealed copy of the normal edition and that worked fine for me. hopefully it works for you.

My issue I found out yesterday was region issue.  I'm using complete edition USA version, but my digital version and VIP Pass are Australia, so I will purchase Australia complete edition disc, and I should be OK.  If not, having someone share their VIP PASS who is in USA is the other option.  Any takers ?

I couldn't use my pass from the Complete Edition either. It was a sealed game. However the game was a Plus offer on November 2016 and the pass was offered, but finding the VIP Pass is a pain as the name is completely dumb (how wonderful the store is for people who have lots of things in the transfer list...), and it doesn't even mention DIRT in the name or description so it will not be easy to find.

Some people reported at the time not having received the VIP pass.

 

 

The 10 year rule even if it's true it doesn't always apply. I have sealed games with expired codes that did not work, and second hand games I bought in which the codes would, both being expired. However there are more expired codes that work than the ones that don't.

Anyone who is still sceptical I tried a VIP code from a preowned Dirt 3 from Eb Games and she works fine.

Also if anyone on here who has 100%'d/plat the game and also has Dirt 3 'complete edition' can they un-install and re-install their game off the disc, I'm struggling to get it done because it crashes at 58%. I want to see if it's just me having problems.

Odd, maybe your disc is scratched or your blu-ray drive is dying? 

 

I remember having similar problems while installing Dirt Showdown. 

 

As for Dirt 3, I have digital and complete edition, but never run into problems when installing / uninstalling the game (I even run the Complete Edition disc on the ps3 with the digital game installed and had no problems at all).

Installed the complete edition on 2 PS3s and had no issues, I think the problem may be with your disc
