    The 3 Months and the 6 Months Game Time Codes for Ultima Online are now available in EA's Origin store.

    This gives you the chance to pay with EA Cash Cards along other payment options (credit cards, ClickandBuy and PayPal). Please note that additional payment options specific to your locations may be available in your regions.

    Check it out.

    Finally...

    Edit: oh dear. This page is loading in the Finnish language. It's assuming because I come from a Finnish IP, that I can read Finnish. And I can't see a link to change the language...

    site's unintelligible atm...

    About time they start getting the Origin stuff straightened out. Now end the game codes website and have all of that available through Origin or through the account management.

    - Good to hear!

    (I don't intend to use it.. but it is a great option for many that I'm sure will utilize it.. just another brick in the wall making UO more user friendly for more to enjoy it)

    Google Translate

    From there maybe you can read enough to see how to change the language - or at least get enough info to make the purchase you need.

    Wow its... it's not translating a single word of it.

    The URL I get redirected to when I click the link in the OP is: store.origin.com/store/eaemea/fi_FI/home/ThemeID.850300/ccRef.en_US . That is the one I put into the translate page. Putting the original url in makes it tell me that it's already in english. I presume google gets the english one by default and I get this wonderful Finnish language redirect.


    aw man.

    From the description it says to enter the code under account management. Does this mean codes will be given again now?

    Clicked and was redirected to the asian (Taiwan) Origin site coz I'm living here. Didn't see any gametime code but only one UO product which was Stygian Abyss Expansion Pack + 30 Days Game Time for NT$890 (aprox US$29.665), so I'm guessing the gametime code is only limited to certain regions. o.0

    That is correct. You'll note in the post it says:

    Please note that additional payment options specific to your locations may (not) be available in your regions.

    *The word *NOT* isn't there but I think that was an unintentional error :)

    I get the UO:SA account upgrade, 3 and 6 month gametime, High Seas Booster and UO:SA New Account code.

    Not much but it's a great start. I would have liked to see the grand bizarre pack in there as well but maybe that'll come later :)

    Yeah I know, I was kinda hoping they'd have them on 'my region' too. Seems like every other region(Japan & US?) gets them but us... Oh well..So much for hoping..:sad3:

    Unless I'm mistaken, they don't seem to be available in the UK, but then EA UK hasn't had anything for UO in years - expansions are bought from uogamecodes.com.

    I've had them come up Petra. £24.99 for 3 months and £37.99 for 6 months. Makes the 6 month option seem very reasonable. Also got the standard High Seas Booster, SA Upgrade and SA new Account options.

    Here

    This sounds and looks very good for us europeans! :)

    Also the prices (comparing $ and EUR) are very good, if you remember the older prices!

    Now, please add the 1 Month GTC option also!

    I'm glad at the news, seems to be progress at last - although I'm still holding back until I hear for sure that people who buy the codes from the Origin site can apply them without problems to their accounts.

    Perhaps you have a friend or family member in the region who can purchase and apply it to your accounts? Then you can reimburst them the funds once its done.

    It shows for me as 3 mo - $39.99 US and 6mo - $59.99 US.

    Are they charging any additional tax(es) on this? If so it's more expensive to buy the 3 mo game time than to pay month to month for me ($13.64 after some phantom tax began being applied).

    Also, FYI, there is a $10 off code/promotion on the site, but it does not apply to gametime. You have to spend a minimum of $30 on games (older than 30 days) to achieve it .

    This is killing me. It's not even a case of something not being offered in my region. I can't even see what's there.

    It's strange for an international company to force a Finnish language localization with no means to step back to English. Finnish language in particular is obscure in terms of international presence and not everyone who lives here understands it. In fact this country has 2 languages, the other one being Swedish.

    It's only the very local companies that do their sites as Finnish language only. The internationals tend to allow you to switch to English. For example - MySpace.com, the page loads as Finnish language localization but at the bottom right there is a tiny link which says "Suomi". Suomi means Finnish Language in Finnish, and this is the link to switch the language. I can click that and switch to English and the site remembers it for a while.

    Google is also like this. It initially loaded in a Finnish language localization, and then I was able to tell it to switch to English, and it's held onto that preference ever since.

    I don't even see how to give origin store this feedback. I cannot read the site well enough to find a feedback link.
