I won't support this online pass nonsense to lock out multiplayer elements, and yea I know blah blah you get a code for "One" user? so I shouldn't be concerned or should I?
I could deal with a code to access Exclusive / Free content, which is the way they should doing it to encourage the sale of new vs. used games.
Example: Rock Band 2: Code for 20 Free Songs if you bought new!
I am a big fan of Uncharted series and this really annoys me, if Uncharted 3 has Online Pass it is going to have to be a No Sale for me
So i'm then confused by people saying they won't buy the game based on the fact they can't get it second hand easily, or they can't sell it on for as much. I'm all for the game companies actually getting a cut of the sales that their games raise tbh, so i would buy a game second hand if it meant I had to then buy a code to play online for a nominal fee. As I would have presumably made a saving getting the game anyways...
I myself and girlfriend have accounts on the same console and have not yet had to by a pass so she could access online and will be getting a second PS3 at some point so ill put my account on that so we can game together.
This was my understanding too Jimmy20 ! Perhaps some people just like making mountains out of molehills or maybe it's our fault for applying too much common sense !

So if I loan out my game to a friend or family they couldn't try the full game on their account?
Sort Answer: No.
Long Answer: They might be able to play the game on their account but Only on The same PS3 that has your account.
It's been hit and miss from what I've heard Many Games will Different Users On the Same PS3 use Online Features.
Then there are Games like Fifa 2011 that only Alows Online Content per One Account if you want to have multiple accounts you have to buy an Online Pass for Each!
Pretty Shady if you ask me...
