Message forum Konsolentreff has come across an interesting image: the box for an upcoming Resistance 3 320GB PS3 bundle. While the box looks great, with that very amazing looking stylish Resistance 3 artwork, what’s curious is the little purple label included on that box.
That label advertises something called “PSN Pass”, and includes the following text:
Network features only available in countries that have PlayStation Store.
So what is this PSN Pass stuff? My guess is that it is Sony’s own version of the “$10 to play online unless you buy the game new” strategy that others companies have started running. If that’s the case, will PSN Pass only be used for Sony-released titles, or will this be a new, more streamlined system for any company to use for their PS3 titles?
Also, of course, leave a comment and let us know what you think about the whole idea of having to pay $10 for the ability to play online multiplayer for games if you buy them used.
