oh ffs...

Online Passes for SP games? Really? Now not only will every MP game have Online passes, but now SP games also.

I've said this before - this online implementation is getting OUT OF CONTROL.

This is ridiculous! Next thing you know we'll have single player sections cut out for us just because you bought a used game...oh wait, Rage is already doing that!

Could be worse like DRM with Online Pass. I do agree this is now getting out of hand. It's not about making extra money as much as it is about the hackers out there stealing this game.

Online Pass
Unlocking 5kb downloads
Updates
Single Player Auto Saving
DRM

Started this gen, ruining gaming becuase it's being done wrong and taken out of control

This is absolutely disgusting.

People call piracy theft but this is blatant theft in my opinion.

You supply the game on the disc. A customer pays for the disc. Then you withhold some of the data then tell the customer you have to pay extra for a part of the disc's content because he/she bought it all second hand.

And also what about the people who do not connect their consoles online? Does the pass work offline? I doubt it. So people who don't connect online will be not be able to play a part of the game for absolutely no justifiable reason.

Anyone who agrees with this is retarded period and a sheep.

Just wondering, lol, but how does 'Single Player Auto Saving' ruin gaming?
Are you referring to the likes of 'casualizing' games, making them 'easier?'

If that's what you mean, than sure. But it sure comes in handy elsewhere.
I can't stand playing a game, for hours, with no auto save.. and, then bam!
Power Outage. Now, you've just lost hours of gaming. Hours and hours lost.
And, that has nothing to do with making it easier for gamers who suck...

It takes the piss. They make out the second hand market is all bad, but any other consumable I buy can be sold on as I see fit... why different for games?

If they feel they are losing out on money, maybe they shouldn't have over saturated the market with poor half arsed titles that put people off of spending their hard earned monies...

Show a bit of class and quality and you'll get my pennies... Constantly rip me off and try and squeeze my wallet dry and I'll become stubborn and give you fuck all.

Lol, that made me laugh. It's sad but true. Things are getting out of hand.

Hmm just read the IGN review.

It seems that the Catwoman review isn't included on the disc but is available to download from launch.

While not on the disc itself, it's the same concept. Catwoman missions could have been included on the disc but wasn't so that Warner Bros could get some more cash.

Greed is what destroys industries.

Might want to bone up on the rules of this site.

Posting Duplicated Stories

The site will automatically detect if you try to post a story with the same url as one that has already been posted. However many sites cover the same stories so before posting a story always check the pending news area to see if it is already posted through a different source. However if the story posted is not the original source of the story it is ok to make a new post but only if it links to the original source of the story. If your story is not the original source you must post it as an alternative source. To do this click on the news post which covers the same story as the one you wanted to post. Now click on gear icon and the "Add Alternative Source" link. This way your news post will get attached to the original news post as an alternative source.

This should have been an alt source.
