May 10, 2010 -
EA Sports is going after the used game market.
Starting with the release of Tiger Woods PGA
Tour 11 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the publisher will introduce
a new Online Pass, a one-time registration code included with each
brand new copy of the game. The code allows players to access "online
services, features and bonus content."
Those who purchase the game used can buy an Online Pass for $10 or sign
up for a free 7-day trial. The pass will be implemented for NCAA
Football 11, NHL 11, Madden NFL 11, NBA 11, FIFA 11, and EA Sports MMA
as well. The pass offers different features for each title, however,
players will not have access to basic multiplayer features if purchased
"You will be unable to play multiplayer online game modes or use your
downloaded content in online game modes," EA says. Online leagues,
dynasty and franchise modes are also only available with the Online
Pass. The break down for each title can be seen on the publisher's official
Woah? So etwas war ja schon zu erwarten, aber es kommt dann doch überraschend. Sehr unschön, ich hab bis dato alle meine EA Sports Spiele gebraucht gekauft.
