Only if you're playing on the same console.

10 bucks that shouldn't need to be paid in the first place. You already have to pay $60 for the **bleep** game... do you like being used by game companies?


*facepalm* ROFL. if you are buying the game for $60 you dont have to pay for the online pass. If you buy a new version of a game you do realize it comes in the case right?

 


Not when you bring it over to a friend's house, then you'll have to pay another $10 so you can play online at their house.

 


im still conused on why you are bringing the game to your friends house to play online >.> makes no sense to me at all. Why cant your friend play at your house? why arent you playing offline? etc.

It counts as DLC, which means it's only able to be downloaded to two active systems at any given time.

Again, it shouldn't be DLC in the first place. This is a scam.

lol how is it so confusing? 2 people on the same console can team up or go against 2 other people online. Makes a lot of sense. Your friend can't always come to your house. Playing online against real people is much more fun.

SO BRING YOUR PS3 TO HIS HOUSE!

 

Problem solved. Or if he is a good enough friend, activate your account on his Ps3 (if you can) and make it even easier. Not going to bring up the price of gaming again because you people don't understand gaming is a luxury and is far cheaper than it use to be back in the day.

I'm questioning what exactly about the online pass is bothering you guys. Is it the whole buying used issue, or what exactly is it? O.o

I'm assuming its the fact that the online pass is tied to consoles not the disc, so if you bring it over places you have to play it on your account. Not a friends.

Which is understandable but if a friend has a Ps3 set-up that means you can just bring yours.

Except I already explained how this "scam" is only a preventative measure for scenarios that can and do happen with online games.  Hey, 1 million people paid for your game, but now you have to maintain the data for 2 million people.  Considering online passes come free with a new copy of the game, they shouldn't be an issue to the majority of people here anyway.  And god forbid somebody buys this game for $25 in six months and then finds out "Oh, I have to pay $10 extra, when the game is still $40 new?  I saved $5!"  Using your logic, you're scamming the developer.


Now the fact that the publisher gets the money for online passes I have an issue with.  The concept of an online pass both makes sense and is here to stay.  The concept of the money usually going only to the publisher is the part that doesn't make nearly as much sense

Anyway, back on topic. D-Squad, who's actually buying your copy of PSASBR? Are you guys splitting the bill or is one of you buying it? Because from what I understand you're buying one PS3 copy for the three of you to play from different PS3's, and you're all buying the Vita version? If you guys are simply sharing the price of PSASBR, then you guys can split the price of a third online pass (IIRC PSN allows two uses of DLC via Gameshare). That's $3 each, and isn't bad at all for allowing all three of you to play.

If you're all buying the Vita version, the solution may be simple: One of you pay $60 for the PS3 version, with the other two paying $40 for their own Vita versions (which they'd have to do regardless if they want to play on Vita). Then you have a PS3 and a Vita version yourself, and they each have the Vita version, all with online passes. Alternatively, one of you pay $40 of the PS3 version, and the other two pay $20 each (10 for their share of the PS3 game and 10 for the online pass). None of you are paying full price (well, you are for the Vita version), and then all of you have an online pass and partial ownership of the PS3 version.

Your situation seems oddly complex, but not very difficult to solve.
