EA really wants you buying a new copy of the hotly anticipated snowboarding game.
Companies are trying a lot of things to encourage users to buy new games instead of opting for cheaper used games. The latest is the Online Pass. Games with Online Pass require that you enter a code when you first boot the game. If you don't have that code, you miss out on content.
It's been revealed that the upcoming snowboarding game 'SSX' will use Online Pass to control used sales. There's no word yet on what you'll miss out on if you pick up a used copy but we're guessing multiplayer.
If you do happen to pick up a used copy of the game and you want to get that online pass, it will be available for purchase for $10 on PSN or Xbox Live.
