Most computer and console game makers will issue a code with the game which will enable you to play. This is done in order to make sure players are using a legitimate copy of the game and not a stolen or pirated copy. It is standard procedure that the game will ask you to input this code at some point of the game so that you can continue to play.
- Codes are designed so that once they have been used they are of little use again.
- Having a game without a code does not always happen due to piracy or theft.
- There is no real incentive for someone to give away their unused code, as this means they will not be able to play.
