It's attached to your Origin account, and I'm pretty sure it's against T&C's to sell your Origin account.  If they find out the account will be banned.  That's what happens for Steam anyway.

The key will be redeemed against your account, even though you can uninstall the game your account still owns it

At least that's how I understand it to work... I don't think you can trade the key so you can't trade/sell the game once you've redeemed it to your account

You purchased a license to access the game, so its not yours to sell.  It is frustrating tho, but Steam is the same.

Only way around this sort of situation (back in my WoW days when I gave up), was to sell an item and they got a "bonus" WoW account ;) So I sold a video card for $200... card was only worth $50.... but they got a "free" lvl 60+ WoW account with it.

Friends don't let friends use Origin :(

But yeah, once you redeem the key it's yours - can't resell it.

Ive found Origin has been fine....  I'd prefer Steam, but a few games Ive purchased online have been Origin only... and theyve been giving away some classic games lately :)

You can always send a support ticket back to Origin, sometimes you get a CSR who is willing to push for you to get what you want or one that will give you a good "NO"




I'm going to noob myself past judgement
