Space Marine Will Launch With "Elite Pass" System

TSA Writes:

THQ Community Manager, “Sledgehammer” has recently confirmed that Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine will require an “Elite Pass” to access the game’s full multiplayer experience. Each PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 copy of the grim sci-fi shooter will have a unique single-use code printed on the back the instruction manual; those who buy Space Marine pre-owned without the pass will have to purchase it via PSN and XBL at the hefty sum of $10.

We can all thank EA for this one.

I think this will hurt the game sales in the long run. DLC, DRM, Online Passes are killing the gaming industry.

Maybe not killing the industry, but killing my interest in it.

Gaming was always a business... but these days it feels like the hunt for profit has marginalized everything else.
