Bought Crysis Maximum Edition on Amazon.com, but keys won't activate on Origin

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Title pretty much says it all, just bought the Crysis Maximum Edition pack from Amazon.com ($2.49 lulz), but all 3 keys (Crysis, Crysis Warhead and Crysis Wars), won't activate on Origin.

Created a new thread since I couldn't find the "Amazon EA Deals" thread or whatever it's called, so sorry about that.

Help would be much appreciated.

Have a nice day.

I have heard a lot about things about amazon digital downloads. It blows. Obviously you chat or call them and yell at them. If they keep saying its nothing wrong on their side then you keep yelling until they fix it. Works for me biggrin.gif Or say you will backcharge them which will only hurt their company.

I believe it will only activate on steam, unless they sold you a copy where it can't be activated on anything other then download directly from amazon.

If you bought a physical copy you don't need origin.

I bought a physical copy of the maximum edition a few years back, and no it will not activate on Origin. I tried to do it after I bought it, even talked to EA support, but it's one of the few games that will not activate on Origin, and there's nothing you can do about it.

It's not amazon's fault, or Crytek's. It's EA not allowing it to be activated. I can't remember the exact reason the rep gave me, but it was some BS about the codes on the maximum edition.

Anyway, activating it will be a no go for you, sorry to say.

Thanks for all the replies fellas.

Yeah, I talked to an EA rep using Origin, and he told me that, once I have played all 3 games, that they will add them to my Origin account.
