Dont really fit into the free online your supposed to get when you buy a ps3, especialy since sony get all the money from the console and other deveopers dont but still dont all charge for an online pass. Also purchasing a ps+ account should really make users exempt from this.

Its a little bit disgusting to be honest, apart from COD sony AAA games sell more than most others (god of war, killzone, uncharted and gran turismo to name a few) so its not like there not making millions from their releases.

Personally this makes me want to buy uncharted 3 pre-owned, i dont like uncharted online and will get it cheaper now so it saves me money to spend on premium copies of BF3 or MW3 that use incentives to encorage first hand buys (map packs, social features such as cod elite)not punish those who need to trade in to generate cash for future purchases.
