    Online Passes for All Games

    You read the title right. Sony Computer Entertainment America or SCEA has confirmed that future releases that have an online feature to the game, will indeed have an online pass.


    Following an earlier statement from a Spanish Sony representative, Sony Computer Entertainment America has confirmed that an online pass will be included with Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. Furthermore, we've been told that ALL upcoming Sony games that feature an online component will include one.

    "Online Pass will be incorporated into Uncharted 3 and future Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios (SCE WWS) games with online functionality," the company told Destructoid. "We will provide further information in the future. "
    With this heavy news that all games that feature an online feature, will be required to have an online pass. What do you think of this bold move from Sony?

    What is this supposed to do?
    Perhaps stop the second hand sales, I'd say. They've been discussing how to do it for ages.
    Maybe this is just a way to slow it a bit... But besides from that... It's just a waste of time and money.

    It doesn't stop the second hand sales, just makes them have to buy an online pass. People who buy the game new will have the online pass included

    It would be pretty funny if this was their special announcement thing that they're doing for the 5th... funny in an angry way.

    This is exactly correct. It is Sony's way of getting more money out of everyone by paying for online for the games.

    If I wanted to pay to play online I'd get WoW or some other MMO or even go as far as paying for xbox live again.

    Lets just hope that passes are only $1 or $2... with my luck it'll be anywhere between $5-$10

    Well I know why they are doing it and I suppose it does make sense

    I don't think it will affect me, I rarely buy second hand games and when I rent games it isn't for multiplayer.

    $10 I'm sure.

    But there seems to be a lot of misinformed people here. Besides people that subscribe to gamefly, this isn't going to bother anyone. Used games, that require an online code to play online, run around $10 cheaper in most stores to compensate for this. So really your paying the same amount or maybe $1-2 more for tax purposes.

    As for whether I love it or hate it. I love it. If you want to play online, buy new or pay the $10. That's money that is going towards developers instead of gamers playing online for free with games they don't even own.

    This is not good. Hope they don't have earnings with this nonsense online passes, and supress it inmediately.
    The way ps3 works right now is perfect, fuuking greed - just saying.

    Yah, I saw this coming when the Ps3 was hacked. Since the system was opened up and that's why the PSP bombed, I knew Sony and other Devs would do something to try and make some money.

    Yes, this will impact the used games market (maybe), but it won't have any impact on folks how buy new games. I'm not too concerned, because I don't buy a large number of used games.
