Already on the Playstation store is the facility to download a online pass to play and rank up online with the game Homefront.
Now why this is on the store already is anyone's guess as the game does not ship until a week Friday.
This payment does not effect players that buy a original copy of the game,but once its traded and the codes been used by that previous person [Online pass ships with game] then the next person has to pay for the second hand game then find out he has to fork out another £6.29 to get the fully fledged features of online play.
Now i think its game developers and publishers trying to reap more benefit out of the second had market and i don't think this is the way to go.
