EA wants us all to play the guessing game!

1 min read


Here’s a funny one.

A whole bunch of Red Alert 3 manuals had some printing issues that cause the 20th digit or letter to not be printed in the games security key. So EA has taken the incredible approach of asking an owner to guess.

They replied to his query by recommending that he “enter your existing code, and try guessing the last character”. Cool, that means that he could land up having to punch the code in around 36 times as it could be anything from A – Z and then 0 – 9.

Sounds like a fun mission, does it unlock any special vehicles? Then again, at least Red Alert came with it’s code (Poke, poke, Microsoft).
