Age of Empires 3 -   Important note to buyers
If you are planning to buy this game on Ebay please be aware that only one online gaming account can be created per CD key (ie copy of the game)
Therefore, if you purchase a used/secondhand copy and the previous owner has already used it to create an online account, you will not be able to use that copy to play online unless the seller is prepared to hand over their account username and password.
Without this, you cannot activate the game online, you will only be able to play on your own on your PC.
My advice is to only buy a used copy on eBay if the seller will provide their ESO online gaming account details, the game is not fully functional without it.
This may also apply to other games that I am not aware of, please check before buying otherwise you could be left with a useless copy of a game.
