If you've purchased a video game with any sort of online functionality recently, then you're probably familiar with the idea of online passes.

Players who buy the game used will have to plop down an additional fee (generally about ten dollars) in order to have access to these features. In fact, some single-player games are even beginning to lock some of their features behind a pay-wall as well, using their own version of the "online pass" idea.

The story is too old to be commented.
