Electronic Arts has announced that the upcoming reboot of SSX will unsurprisingly launch with an online pass.
As per the usual tradition, the online pass will be included in all new copies of the game, though used buyers will have to part with over $10 to get their hands on a digital voucher.
Game Informer reports that all players will be able to access SSX’s Explore and Global Events, though any in-game credits accumulated will be withheld until you activate your pass code. Credits are used to purchase new gear for your character and participate in special event drops.
Said EA in a statement: "In SSX, players without an Online Pass are able to compete and play in both of SSX's online game modes, Explore and Global Events with no restrictions.”
"In Global Events, the top finishers from each event are awarded with in-game credits. These in-game credits earned during play will not be awarded to the player if they do not have an Online Pass; these credits will be stored so that at any time, if a player redeems an Online Pass code, all the credits that they had previously earned in Global Events will be immediately awarded to them."
Developed by EA Canada, SSX is due out in North America on February 28 and in Europe on March 2 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

EA had always have been introducing such an amazing games for the all ages. i am playing the releases since then i was at my teenages. mostly i used to play the cricket compendiums.
Playing your favorites online is an amazing experience probably when it has no restriction for the multiplayer gaming. there with that easyness you can have a good tough competition with the counterpart of yours, and can measure your skill of what do u have well.

unsurprising.... Hate EA because of that. But of course, THQ and other developers are doing the same.....
Mass Effect 3 will have one too, most likely

These companies need to understand that "used games" shops are part of the business, most shops that sell video games get less than 5$ for each new game sold, so they cen get a better margin for selling used games. The shops that sell only new games are usually very big companies that order 1000s of games and thus get them for cheaper and can get a better margin.
Killing the used business will make those - very stupid and greedy - companies actually lose money as these "used games" shops getting killed won't sell new games too. Of course it'll only be a transition period, but the loss numbers will be huge. Seeing that, some multimedia companies could react in not wanting to sell new video games anymore as their margin is very low compared to TVs, furniture, food ...
I so despise those "economy specialists" who only care about making huger benefits, not considering the global economy and of course the purchasing power of the customers.
