I think this was known as common knowledge even before we knew what the beta map was going to be. Not to say earlier either. I assumed this the moment I heard about it, it's EA for christ's sake.

I don't understand the hate these Online Passcodes get. Just buy the game new, problem solved.

You forget, the general public is nothing but cheapskates who whine regardless of what they pay. (The state of the economy doesn't mean anything in this case, as games are entertainment, and essential items like food and utilities)

IMO it's on the same level as games shipping with DLC.

At times like this I feel like making undoubtedly sure that I want the game. I'll probably wait around for reviews just to make sure this game gets polished to a respectable degree. I Just don't like when something simple to fix is left unfixed.

Won't used copies be cheaper now though? It's like, did you use the code? You did? That's 10$ I'm not paying for.

Does this surprise you? I mean, this is EA we're talking about. If there's a penny to be made somehow, they'll push for a dollar.
A friend of a friend of a friends cousin told me that the folks over at EA even go so far as to dig up graves in search of gold teeth and whatnot. True story.

I'm not whining, i just honestly believe these online passes are stupid, i already pay for Xbox Live monthly....i miss the days when it was just get a game and you can play online, This ruins things like Gamefly and renting games for me to try online Also.
