    I buy most of my games used. That they need profit from sales? Say you buy the game at a pawn shop. The game was bought at a gamestop, best buy, walmart, etc. It's not like they stole the copy and didn't pay anything.

    They still make money, but they lost a shit load of possible profit because of used games. Also it's not like the passes are super priced.

    Not surprising because right now you need an online pass for mostly all the big titles.
    Anyway, i'm buying this game but not for the multiplayer because i'm sure it will suck ass.

    60$ + 10$ = 70$
    BF3 + Online Pass = Total BF3
    -----------------------------
    70$ + 30$ = 100$
    Total BF3 + Taxes in local market = New Total Price

    BFBC2 had a VIP pass so this was to be expected.

    Not surprised EA is incorporating the online pass so why would they leave it out of BF3, one of there biggest releases this year.

    The only problem I see, is that, for exemple, a game is 40$ new, but used it must be around 25-30$ + 10$ for the online pass, it will be the same price as a new game :/
    EA maybe don't understand that some players can't pay new games, and for sure they'll loose a lot of custommers if they keep that thing :/
    It's pretty sad how to see that the big companys like EA just wants to make money :/
    Here, on Spain, there's a 20,5% (6,000,000) of unenployed people, for sure they can't afford new games, and of course they don't think on them, just on their money :/

    Actually they won't lose customers. Companies don't earn a dime from used games sales.

    Games are expensive but it's what we love so we have to pay for our enjoyment.

    for people who don't like the online pass, there is a easy way to stop the developers using the online pass, think about it if everyone on a major gaming site does not buy battlefield 3 then they will get way less profits..... if you don't buy the game then they make no money so then they will have 2 listen 2 you the problem is getting everyone to actually not buy the game for a day or two which is impossible, if only it was

    What i noticed with gamefly, especially BFBC2, i elected to "keep" it and they sent me the used game with the original boxed codes as if i got it NEW.

    Maybe thats a way to cheat it?...idk, just sayin
