Uncharted 3 looks set to get an online pass photo



It looks like Sony has fully embraced the seedy world of online passes, with news that Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception will follow in Resistance 3's footsteps and require a code to be input before multiplayer access is granted. Classy. 

According to Sony Spain's Juan Jiménez, the online pass will feature as part of a bid to tackle piracy, because of course Sony's efforts to fight piracy have always ended well, and never affect honest paying customers, right? Right. 

I think my thoughts on online passes have been made abundantly clear by now, but it's extra galling with Sony, since its online infrastructure is a pile of sh*t. The last thing players need is even more walls erected around their experience by a console that seems to do everything in its power to widen the gap between the time a player buys a game and the time they're actually allowed to play it.

In any case, we contacted Sony for further commentary. One can hope this is a case of mistranslation, but Sony seems to be as big a fan of online passes as THQ and EA, so expect it to stick around.

Storm's Adventure with Uncharted 3

This video was ready ages ago. What's my excuse now? Well, I hooked up a new monitor, and that somehow corrupted my Master Boot Record. Go figure. Just another reason why I can't make a video every week. Oh, and to understan...more

Review: Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception

I was really looking forward to playing Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception. While I loved the original Uncharted, I did agree with some people that it felt a little repetitive, especially towards the end. With Uncharted 2, though...more

Review: The Walking Dead Season 2: No Going Back

I really enjoyed watching Clementine's tale unfold over the course of The Walking Dead Season 2. It managed to establish a different tone than the first season, which makes them rather hard to compare bit by bit. But in terms...more

Is P.T. a work of art, or a pixel-hunting exercise in frustration?

When P.T. was announced at gamescom a few weeks back, no one really jumped for joy. Billed as a "playable teaser," the interactive trailer was very much a game, and come to find out -- it had many elements of old school ...more

This is it: Final trailer for The Walking Dead Season 2

This will spoil season 2 for you up to this point. If you're not caught up (like me), don't watch. Otherwise, get excited about "No Way Back," the final episode in season 2 of The Walking Dead. Can it live up to the first season's strong finale? "No Way Back" hits PC/Mac and North American PS3/Vita on August 26; Xbox 360 and European PS3/Vita on August 27; iOS on August 28. more
