    EA puts an end to its Online Pass program

    EA has announced it will discontinue its Online Pass program. "Yes, we're discontinuing Online Pass," EA's senior director of corporate communications John Reseburg toldGamesBeat in an e-mail. "None of our new EA titles will include that feature."

    Reseburg added that "many players didn't respond to the format," despite EA going on record months after instituting Online Passes, reporting it had not seen a "significant" backlash. "We've listened to the feedback and decided to do away with it moving forward."

    The Online Pass, a one-time use code required for online play, was first introduced in 2010 with the intent of being exclusive to EA Sports games, though it quickly escalated from there. Online Pass revenue generated between $10-$15 million for EA in its first year alone.

    Yep. Amazing news.


    Hopefully something even more horrible isn't in the pipeline... like the fact that you can't play used games ><

    Pessimist in me says this isn't really good news as they have something just as bad or worse in the pipeline.

    Good on you for being suspicious of EA. Next gen is soon and EA needs to next gen the way they do business. Expect the worst.

    Well, perfect timing. We see an announcement of anti-used games, and EA abandons the online pass. They're gonna opt in for no used games policy. On the bright side, they won't gain any extra money.
