LBP1 and LBP2 didn't have online passes, and since I live in another country, and PS Store is not available in that country, AND I've made a cool level featuring a cow that poops out screaming bacon, AND I need an online pass to get to the community, that means I can't share my bacon cow. I thought LBP was Play, Create, Share and not Play, Create, Cannot Share because PSN is a bunch of removed-inappropriate. :cry:

For a game that freezes online as much as this one, I don't know what my money for the online pass has gone towards.

The online pass is to try and get rid of the second-hand game dealers. When you buy a game new, the developers of the game would get the money. If for example, you got fed up of it and you sold it to a friend who wanted it, the developers do not get any cash for their game. And if that friend sold it to a second-hand game shop, again the devs wouldn't get any money for it.

So in a nutshell, I believe the online pass is just to discourage people from buying their games second-hand. That's why games of today are so online based; taking away online takes away most of the game's fun.

Good thing they dont do this with other products pepole would not accept a policy like this in the auto industry , its about time the whole pass thing went the way of the fishes if you know what i mean .I already buy your game and now you want more cash ...makes me angry LOL.

The gamming industry has gotten very dumb.

Since when do creators, inventors, developers, and companys make money off of used stuff?

Honda doesnt make money when you buy a 88 civic , chevy wont make a cent if you buy a 58 bel air , games should be the same , no strings attached used stuff equals no profit .

Maybe if second hand Hondas that were bought new for $15000 only a few weeks ago were bought by used car salesmen for $5000 and then sold for $10000 then Honda might also want a part of that $5000 mark up. You can't compare games to cars, they're completely different things.

I don't think prohibiting second hand sales is a good idea, but I also don't see why Gamestop and the likes should get such a huge slice of the cake either, they're hardly adding any value. The biggest mystery is how they get away with it. If you see used games sold at $40 and they only offer $20 for your copy, doesn't that strike you as a huge rip-off?

(Full disclosure: I don't sell any of my games, nor do I buy second hand. If I think a game is too expensive, I wait a few months and it'll drop in price. Who has time for other games when they're into LBP(K) anyway. ;) )
