An image recently surfaced showing the box details for the Resistance 3 bundle and the mark of a mysterious PSN Pass feature. Today, it was confirmed in a statement from Sony that the feature is indeed real and coming soon starting with Insomniac’s latest installment in the Resistance franchise.
The pass is being compared all over to EA’s pass system from last year where a one-time code is used to access a game’s online features. The concept seems like it’s spreading like wildfire across the industry with many games planning to incorporate the future. It is primarily seems as an attack on the secondhand games market of which GameStop is the leader. If you get the game used with no code, you’ll have to fork over extra cash to purchase your own pass.
Right now it’s only for PS3 games and they made it clear that the Pass is game-specific but we all know that it’ll probably find it’s way on to the games we all want to play.
