I would like to sell my copy of Battlefield 2, but I cant remember if the CD Key was used to create my login account. I would not like to sell the game to someone if they will not be able to create an account and log in with the same CD Key. Does anyone know how this works?

    TC or Mod should really change the title. I thought TC was trying to sell his game on this website. – Doug Aug 18 '10 at 0:22
  • @Doug done and done. – Ritwik Bose Aug 18 '10 at 1:08
  • I'm curious as to why you are selling it. I checked on Amazon and it is selling new for $8. The complete collection can be had new for $11. Do you have someone suckered into paying $20 for it? If so, buy it off of Amazon and resell a new copy. – Corv1nus Aug 18 '10 at 14:26
  • @Corv1nus. A few reasons. It is sitting on my shelf and gathering dust, it will never get played again, because I dont even own a windows PC anymore (and not interested in WINE / Virtual machine gaming). Even if it goes for US$8 its better than US$0 and having to eventually throw it away. Also, I am selling it on eBay, so apart from contributing to a cause (online market) I get a reputation point, as well as an extra $2 or so for the handling charges. Plus I am supporting the Battlefield community / franchise. So there are a lot of factors to consider :) – Nippysaurus Aug 19 '10 at 0:14

I believe you CAN resell the game (since I've seen it used in stores -- pc) but the buyer has to pay a $20 reactivation fee unless you transfer your entire EA account to them.

Please note that you CANNOT sell Steam games and apparently it is against the EA t&c to transfer your EA account, so you can only sell it if you bought it somewhere other than Steam (probably in box form) and you can find out exactly how to get the reactivation working. I'm fairly certain it exists, but I don't know how to do it, so I would encourage someone who does know to post an answer.

  • I was unable to find any information too, just more people saying it does exists. – alexanderpas Aug 19 '10 at 9:05

I think anyone can register an EA account and you only need the CD-key to play BF2, i.e., the CD-key isn't associated with your EA account.
