Black Ops 3 Nuketown code redeem not working

Not everyone is having the best Black Ops 3 launch experience so far. After reported problems of a persistent BO3 server error code preventing some from playing, we can now see that some gamers are saying that their Black Ops 3 Nuketown code is not working.

If you haven’t come to terms with the reality yet, the Nuketown code in UK was only available to those that pre-ordered from GAME UK.

In other words, you can’t play Nuketown by ordering from Amazon UK, Tesco, Asda or other places – GAME UK only sadly.

In the US this is different as you could gain access to Nuketown by simply pre-ordering the game, regardless of location putting further emphasis on the shady tactics deployed by Activision and GAME in the UK.


Now with that said and done, those who actually do have a Nuketown code do not want to run into problems trying to redeem it on the PlayStation Store.

We have seen some early feedback with this exact issue with one saying that the Black Ops 3 “Nuketown Personalisation Pack code is invalid”.

There’s some confirmation on this above via Twitter and also again on Activision’s official forums here with the same problem.

As far as we’re aware, there has been no response from Activision yet on what could be causing the issue.

Are you having any problems redeeming Nuketown codes on the PlayStation Store today after buying Black Ops 3? Give us your experience below.
