Resistance 3 becomes the first Sony game to use an online pass

Sony reveals their new PSN Pass scheme

Sony has joined the growing pool of publishers that are using an online pass system to monetise pre-owned sales of their games.

The new PSN Pass system to be introduced with Resistance 3 will be a one use code that will allow first time buyers access to online features and DLC that pre-owned buyers will need to pay for.

This is almost identical to the online pass systems employed by EA, THQ and, most recently, Codemasters.

Sony said: "Starting with Resistance 3 this September, we will be instituting a network pass program for PS3 games with online capabilities."
