I'm trying to think of any good SEGA online games made in past years but I'm having trouble, they've mostly been singleplayer experiences for consoles. I guess Virtua Fighter 5? I just hope this doesn't mean they tack on crappy multiplayer solely to charge if they go this route.

Seriously though, I don't care if the code is included with the game, I don't want enter a book full of codes to access features that were already unlocked in previous years! The companies are banking on two things,

1. Someone would accidentally buy a subscription not realizing they got a code in the box.
2. Someone buys a subscription to a dead or crappy online game

This plague will kill a lot of good publishers, but SEGA isn't one of them.
