Pretty crazy news, huh? This is what is going to happen: Starting with the next Tiger Wood's game, You will be require to purchase an EA online pass with your games if you want to play online. Those that buy the game brand new will receive a code for the pass, and those who buy used or rent will have to pay $10 if they want to hop online. For EA, this will ensure that a customer who rents or purchases a used game will still have to pay them for online privileges and will give them revenue from used sales. Sony has done something similar when they released Socom for the PSP, although that locked players out of online unless you bought new.

This has probably been the biggest move against used sales, and it will be interesting to see how this method is received.
