    Full game d/l via PSN/SEN and Online pass.

    I know the online pass is here to stay and that is just something that is a standard. However I almost bought Tiger Woods 2012 for $39.99 from the PSN/SEN store, then I'd have to get the online pass for another $9.99. I just think the pass should be included, the cost would be roughly $50.00. Now you could find the game via disc used for around $19.99 and get the online pass for the $9.99. Point is that would be cheaper then the original price for just the game via PSN/SEN.

    I just was wondering how everyone else felt with this issue, should the online pass be included if you purchase the game from the PSN/SEN store? Fact is the majority of people won't pay attention to the fact that you still would need the pass and in all reality get shafted by using the store.

    Yes the pass should be included with the digital copy because your buying the game and the company gets money for that. When you buy a used game for half the price at Gamestop, buy a online pass via the SEN store, but the company only gets money from the pass . An example is Rachet and Clank: All 4 one is full price $59 on SEN store but the pass is not included.... but I can go to amazon and buy the game for $30 new, pass included???

    My thoughts exactly, I didn't look at the other games so I really wasn't sure how they stacked up via price.

    I thought all digital games you download off PSN/SEN came with the pass. i know Hot shots golf for the Vita came with the online pass.

    I could be wrong, but I thought I read in the info that the pass was not included.

    I just went and looked in the store and doesn't say either way, no mention to the fact of if the pass is included or is not.

    What? That's bs the online pass should be included in every new copy of the game. Digital or disc.

    If it wasn't than that is just a rip off. It would be cheaper to just buy the game at the store instead of online because knowing stores and sales you might get it 39.99 brand new

    This is a major point. The fact that Sony realises not everyone will read the damn instructions and therefore not have a case when they complain (something in the T&C's). This simple mistake can amount to a lot of money generated.

    The whole online pass thing is bs. The fact that the product would have been bought ONLINE should automatically give you the fucking pass. Money grubbing sons of bitches.

    As I said above I went back and read the info and it is really lacking in info, no idea if it is included or not.
    Does anyone have any proof on if the pass come's with a digital copy or do you still need to shell out the cash for the online price?
    As I said it would be $50.00 for both via PSN/SEN, and I'm sure you can find the game brand new for less pass included, not only you could buy it used and pay for the pass and still come out cheaper.
