Was THQ the first company that started the "Online Pass"?

Sony started it with online passes on the PSP.

I finally won a mod dispute. Too bad it got overturned a day after my suspension ended.

I thought Sony started it with Resistance 3? Was it around before that?

No EA released Mass Effect 2 months before. Hopefully there are... less than five PSP titles with online pass? I only remember ModNation Racers, White Knight Chronicles Origins, Patapon 3, SOCOM Fireteam Bravo 3.

Western publishers started all the anti-consumer practices, and now Microsoft (American company) will release the 1st ever anti-consumer console the Xbox720, all evils, I hope Sony will not see MS and do the same with the PS4.

I wish people would do like me and boycott western games from western publishers and Microsoft.
