EA Stopping Online Passes for Existing Games

EAFollowing its announcement that it would stop using its controversial online pass system for future games, EA have now announced that they will remove online passes for all EA existing titles beginning with EA Sports games.EA corporate communications representative John Reseburg in an interview with told Game Informer magazine said:

“As we discontinue Online Pass for our new EA titles, we are also in the process of eliminating it from all our existing EA titles as well,”

“We heard the feedback from players and decided to do away with Online Pass altogether.”

“Players will see it first with some EA Sports titles, where a prompt to enter an Online Pass code will no longer appear in-game; with other titles we are simply making Online Passes available free of charge online,” he continued. “These are rolling updates that are taking effect over the next several weeks. We hope players continue to enjoy our games and online services for a long time to come.”

The sceptics among you will probably be thinking that EA are only doing that following the announcement of the pre-owned game function of the Xbox One and the likely hood that the PS4 will have a similar system. Anyway until then you will be able to enjoy past pre-owned EA games in full.
