    just bought this game the other day, and im not that keen on it.
    The shop said they cant take it back after its been opened because once its been activated it cant be used again on another pc.
    Is this true and will i be able to ge rid or will i have to cut my losses ?

    thanks

    There is no reason why you can sell it. However 2nd hand pc games dont fetch much due the serial key activation process.

    Also make sure you uninstall the game before you sell it so as the person who buys it will get their 5 full activation slots.

    You basically get five slots at installing this game. If you dont uninstall and say delete the game file it will leave you with only 4 slots. They do this a form of protection so that you dont install it on many machines and only pay for one copy. There has been a big uproar about this form of protection. At first they only gave us 3 slots but due to public pressure it has been upped to 5.

    The guys at 2K have said that this whole activation mess will be removed at some point in the near future. They only put it in at the beginning due to the expected piracy, which is always at its highest when a new game launches.
