Sony starting it's own "Online Pass" begining with Resistance 3


Remember EA's "Online Pass" where if you buy a used game you have to pay 10 dollars to activate the online, well unfortunately other companies are starting to follow suit. In this case it's Sony with their new program that will start with Resistance 3.

Not all the details have been revealed so there's some speculation going around the internet about certain aspect of the program. Here's some of the things that have not been confirmed.

 - Whether or not this will apply to all Sony games in the future
 - If they'll restrict full online functionality or just partial

Here's the statement, "We are always evaluating new programs for our online offering and starting with Resistance 3 this September, we will be instituting a network pass program for PS3 games with online capabilities. This program will be game-specific. Games that are a part of this program will include a single-use registration code that grants the account holder redeeming the code full online access for that title. This is an important initiative as it allows us to accelerate our commitment to enhancing premium online services across our first party game portfolio."
