    EA: Online Pass staying dead after PS4 reveal. More info inside.



    "It's dead, it's dead, it's deep-sixed, it's at the bottom of the Mariana Trench," Electronic Arts' President of EA Labels Frank Gibeau stated plainly yesterday about the company's Online Pass program to Joystiq.

    Following EA's announcement in late May that it was eliminating the Online Pass program, gamers braced for "the twist." That occurred last week when Microsoft finally announced the digital rights management (DRM) scheme for the Xbox One, which would have made an Online Pass program unnecessary. However, with Sony's announcement the PlayStation 4 will follow the current model of game console DRM and used games, it was a question if Online Pass was back on the table at EA.

    "We're not crafting a strategy to bring [Online Pass] back, you will not input codes to unlock your game, it's not going to happen," said Gibeau. The executive then moved on to tell us the company's decision to kill Online Pass and Microsoft's Xbox One DRM plans weren't linked at all, therefore PlayStation 4's recent reveal wouldn't have changed their decision on the program anyway. He called the Online Pass program "flat out dumb."

    This is old news. EA stated way before E3 that the online pass was a thing of the past.

    They didn't state whether it would return for PS4.

    Now, they have.

    They're full of it. The reason they got rid of it was probably the knowledge that Xbone would be doing a strict DRM and gambling on Sony to follow suit. Sony did not and now they are trying to say they had no knowledge of the situation.

    Sony did have a DRM in mind no doubt, but with the fall out on Microsoft right now, they would be totally retarded to bring it into effect and start losing sale to MS, again.

    Now it's confirmed, maybe what you are talking about before E3 was speculation based on some random facts. I think there's not too much room for speculation = "It's dead, it's dead...".

    In some point maybe still has.
    Never forget what company gave you OtherOs as many other things to later removal.
    Still don't get it how come both of them will could have a huge loss selling units?, We are no talking here about something portable-soon-to-be-dead but 2 consoles with a nice label "next-gen" all over the place people will continue to buy them. (if they have the money and they want to invest in one of this devices or both).

    I think Sony gone full retarded more than once, maybe you remember "Tropical thunder" (Movie) and the line "Never go full retarded...".

    Still not luck for BF3 players with preexisting copies lol. I can assume it wont be done for preexisting copies because of the people that have already paid. I hope that's the reason at least:/

    Instead of shafting you themselves, they're letting their partner, Microsoft, shaft you harder. Though they misjudged Sony, thinking they would start the shafting process too.
