Might as well add Gamespot to that list. They fired Jeff Gershman a couple years back, because of his review of Kane & Lynch: Dog Days. Turns out giving a bad review on a game that a publisher has bought ad space for angers the people at the top. Jeff Gershman nows runs the gaming website Giant Bomb. For those that didnt know.
MS gave Rare a chance with Viva Pinata and Banjo. Those games didnt do so well. So one could ask, "Where were all these Rare fans at?"

Wow this story gave me a headache. This guy must have OCD in order to put so much thought and energy into deciding how to spend his gaming time.

Which usually results in the single player time length being shortened and the multiplayer flat sucking and feeling tacked on.
The reason publishers have an online pass is supposedly so a gamer can pay for their spot on the server. But it doesnt make sense to make a person who buys a game used pay for an online pass. Because the spot on the server has already been paid for by the original purchaser.
Publishers might try to deny it, but the only reason they have an online pass is to prevent their game from being bought used.
