I think the argument that they need to charge for online passes to pay for online services is absurd and BS. They get revenue from the sale of the new game, when the original owner sells it or trades it in, they’re obviously no longer using “server space” for that game, another person is, so their justification for gouging used game buyers and renters is BS. Just another money grab IMO. #lame

So true Blu-rayFreak…Server space fees have already been collected…
