    MW3, BF3 used games for PC - is it ok to buy used? Can the keys be re-used to reactivate for online gaming or even single user gaming?

    Not really. If anything forcing people to use Origin has lost BF3 sales (sadly since Origin isn't terrible and BF3 is very good). Buying PC games used is always risky, since CD Key's basically mean the person could just copy the install disk and CD Key, and sell you the case to get what they paid for the game back while still being able to play it. The only time I would buy PC Games is if they were New In Box and still sealed.
