Given the policy reversal over Xbox One's DRM, it wasn't entirely out of the question that Electronic Arts would change its mind and want to keep the Online Pass program going. A stupid scenario, to be sure -- do you know anyone who even moderately liked the system? -- but still a possibility. The company has thankfully confirmed that the passes aren't coming back.

"[There is] no change to our decision to discontinue Online Pass," EA senior director of corporate communications John Reseburg told Polygon. "It is dead. As we said a few weeks ago, none of our new EA titles will include Online Pass, and we are removing it from existing games as well. Nothing else on today's news, but did want to be clear that our online pass decision was based on player feedback, and there's no change."

I'm doing the Agent Cooper smirk right now.

Wear the carcass of Chester Cheetah in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare

I was prepared to get mildly annoyed at this Cheetos partnership with Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare, despite the fact that it's not the first time the game has dabbled in brand-sponsored character variants. (There were ...more
