    PSN Pass or Online Pass

    I was wondering how PSN pass works? Planning to get Uncharted 3 and Battlefield 3 and both have PSN pass. Does the pass works on 1 game only upon register or all games that have online pass? Also, does the pass works on the same console? I have 2 accounts on my system. Thanks

    P.S. Am I posting this on the correct section? Thanks Again

    PSN Pass is just another word for Online Pass. It's one pass per game and account.

    Basically any Online Pass activated only works on the account you activated it on so you have to buy another Online Pass in order to play the MP on your other account and there is one for each game so in your case you need one for Uncharted 3 and another for Battlefield 3 which you get if bought them brand new or else if you got them pre owned, you'll have to buy it from the PSN store.

    And btw, yes it is in the right section.

    OK I have read one of the threads in the playstation community. Is this true?

    Will psn pass work for all sub accounts if the pass is activated on the master account?
    I have personally tested this and I have confirmed that if the pass is activated on any account on the system, it will work for all accounts on the same system.

    Actually, it works for all accounts in one system, not quite just one account. I played Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit on two of my three accounts using only one Online Pass from my main account. Pretty cool if you get the game new.

    yes that's correct. MOST PSN/Online passes will allow you to play the game online on any ps3 that has the account that dl'ed it on it and installed on each ps3. The only exception I can think of that only works for the account only is White Knight Chronicles 2. To play online on other accounts, you must purchase passes for each account.

    One Online Pass works for only one game, so you need one for Battlefield 3 and one for Uncharted 3.
