Electronic Arts får besök av tryckfelsnisse

Ibland händer det att nyckfelsnisse ställer till det, men för Electronic Arts gör han det riktigt ordentligt besvärligt för kunderna.

I deras supportforum till spelet Command & Conquer 3 kan man hitta följande fråga:

What can I do if my Command and Conquer Red Alert 3 install code is 19 characters instead of 20?
If you are trying to install Command and Conquer Red Alert 3 and the code is only 19 characters long, then it is missing the last letter or number. This was due to a misprint on a small number of manuals and we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.

There is currently a work around that may allow you to bypass this issue. Since you have the first 19 characters of the code already, you can basically try “guessing” the last character. To do this, simply enter your existing code, and then for the last character, try the letters A-Z, and then the numbers 0-9. You should eventually get the right combination, and be able to play the game. If this does not work, you can follow the instructions below.

In order to get a replacement code, please click the “Contact Us” link on the left side of the page to send an e-mail to our team.

If you would like you can also contact us by phone using the number found on page 28 of your manual.

Skulle EA censurera frågan så har jag tagit en skärmdump på det hela för ert nöje. Frågan och svaret hittar ni hos EA på deras supportforum.
Riktigt klantigt, men inte lika klantigt som Ubisoft och deras nocd-crack.
