Screw you THQ!



This means that if you purchase the game (360 or PS3) 2nd hand or rent it, you will have to pay a fee to play it online

I don't have an Xbox so I'm confused. Is this yet another example of Microsoft nickel and diming its users?

Lets be mad at THQ for trying to make you buy from them instead of gamestop used.

So the code comes with every new copy, so if you just bought it you don't have an issue.

If somehow you have already purchased a used copy, you pay $5 to play online, considering you didn't pay full price, not a big deal imo.

Holy shit. Are they seriously trying to make it so you will not be able to play used copies? This is insane. I hope this doesn't set a trend for all games.

Where does it say you pay $5? It says you have to purchase a code. It could be full priced.

EA has already stated before this came out that this is what they are moving towards with all their sports titles

No its for PS3 user too. But sucks more for Xbox live user because not only are you paying a year subscription to get on line you have to pay per game to play online. While we get it for free and just pay per game to play it online.

And it makes douchbags such as yourself from pirating games like a goddamn nerd. Jesus the game comes out in 5 days. It's assholes like piraters that kill the game industry by killing the revenue.
