EA Online Pass Rant
Okay, so I rented Need For Speed Hot Pursuit from the library for the cheap. And the game isn't that bad. But to play online, EA's new strategy to combat used sales are in effect. You'll have to spend $10 bucks to actually have fun with friends and somebody across the world online. Which isn't right. This isn't the way to go. It'll only divide people then bring them in. So if you're in Gamestop one day and thinking about getting the new Battlefield used for $5 cheaper, you'll regret it, since you'll be paying $5 more than brand new. The game is great, but this new method for online gaming is absurd. Especially if you have X-box Live and now you have to pay $10 more when you're already paying to play online. I can understand that they're trying to get the devs to make money on their games, by cutting out on used sales. But this isn't the way.
