Sony introducing PSN Pass with Resistance 3

Resistance 3 bundle

A logo titled "PSN Pass" was found on photos of the Resistance 3 bundle, revealed yesterday by German website Konsolentreff. Now Sony has officially announced what this new feature actually is.

In response to questions regarding the service, the SCEA explained that the program will require users to input a one-time code in order to unlock a game’s online features.

"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," said the spokesperson. "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 means individuals who buy a used copy of the game will have to pay an additional cost in order to purchase a PSN Pass. The new system is strikingly similar to EA’s Online Pass, introduced last year.

No pricing structures have been revealed yet, but Sony said it will announce further details at a later date.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
