EA Dropping the Online Pass

EA has been making money off of not just their amazing games, but a feature that made a lot of fans upset and that’s the “online pass”. Now in the good old days, players used to understand that if you want to play a game for the storyline, you put the game in to your console and start it up and if you wanted to play online, you just had to be connected to the internet. Well companies that are truly amazing, like EA and Ubisoft, decided that their games are definitely good enough to charge for an online pass so that if players wanted to play online with their friends, they needed to pick up the pass at a price decided at an earlier point.

I must say that I was beyond upset with this decision when I first saw it because I was not allowed to play the game that I paid for and nothing upsets me more than when a gaming company that makes millions and millions of dollars every year, feels like they have to nickel and dime you with stuff like that. So again, for all of those gamers out there that voted EA the worst company in the world, they are listening to those of us that are smart enough to be faithful and dropping their online passes for all of their games.

It’s true that ten dollars was not and is not a lot of money but the fact that we as gamers pay sixty dollars already, proves that there is no reason why we should have to pay even more money to enjoy the game as a whole. I think that fans will be happier altogether and now those over at EA don’t have to worry about backlash from the community and can focus on their products.
