Okay to buy used?.....GTA 4: Episodes from Liberty City (Gay Tony and Lost Damned)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Is it okay to buy GTA 4 Episodes from Liberty City used? This is the expansion pack that has 2 games on it: Ballad of Gay Tony and Lost and the Damn.

(Technically its not an expansion pack because it doesn't require the original GTA 4 but whatever).

I'm really only concerned about the single player campaigns, I read used versions can't be played online in multiplayer but that's unimportant to me b/c I don't intend on playing multi-player at all.

But my real concern is if I buy the game used (on disc) will I be available to update the game to fix whatever bugs were there in the initial release?

It should be fine, if everything is on a disk and you have the serials. You can update no problem.

No, if the key was used means the previous owner activated it via Games for Windows LIVE, and you won't be able to activate it yourself on your GFWL account.

Therefor I'd say no, you'll have to buy an unused version.

I agree with kcuestag, Plus, the game is pretty cheap as it is (new). If you want it, your better off just getting it new for activation code reasons.
