Okay, so, most new Sony games require you to enter a code in order to play online. It's to combat used game sales. The code should be at the back of the manual or something.

If the code isn't there or if it has been used already, you'll have to go to the PS Store and buy an online code from there (one time) or get a new copy, which then comes with a whole new code.

im using an rented game from a blockbuster. that means theres no code. or its already been used.

i guess ill have to buy a new code for the uncharted 3. once i buy the new game theres no money back or anything. right?

That's right. If you're going to buy the game new then I wouldn't bother with buying a code.

Buy game = Buy code (or don't if copy is new)

Don't buy under any other circumstance.

is there any way to get through it? i dont mean like hacking the system or anything... more like. can i play with friends i have attached to my PS list without needing to by the code.

seems like i'll have to wait till monday to either buy the game or the code.

If you want your PSN banned, then sure there's a way of hacking through it.

I'd rather you just stay on single player until you pick it up later.

thats the thing... i dont wanna hack my way into it. i just wonder if i can invite friends into playing with me without having to buy the code.

if i am allowed to play with friends from my list. then i wont have to wait. but ask for ppl to join me and play.

You can't play online without a code. Not all games are like this, by the way.

But no code equals no online niceness. ;_;
