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

Preview: The Last of Us
I was skeptical of The Last of Us. Despite all the hype and high promises, to me, it looked like post-apocalyptic Uncharted. I wasn't sold on the dynamic nature of how the game progressed, and as we all know, zombies have been literally done to death in the past five years. Then, I got a chance to actually play it. How many days until June 14th again?more
