Great news today, the EA games online passes have been finally discontinued!
For those who don’t know what the Online pass is we’ll explain you right away, the online pass is is a system of restricting access supplemental functionality in a product through a single-use serial numberin order to hinder or discourage the second-hand sale of a product, and to allow the producer of a product to still return profits from second-hand copies of the product.
”We’re discontinuing Online Pass, none of our new EA titles will include that feature. ” Said EA senior director of corporate communications to VentureBeat. “Initially launched as an effort to package a full menu of online content and services, many players didn’t respond to the format, we’ve listened to the feedback and decided to do away with it moving forward.”
