Has anybody had any experience of renting a game that operates an online pass system? I'm wondering if the likes of lovefilm or blockbuster have a deal enabling rental copies to use the online portion of a game without the player needing a pass.
Without getting into the whole pass argument I can understand (sort of) why games are coming with a pass, giving the devs/publishers a slice of second hand sales. Rental copies don't cost companies £40 though, they pay hundreds per disk to rent a game out, so surely they should have extra passes not one per copy?
The most recent example I can think of is Resistance 3, anyone rented it from lovefilm? Could you play online or were you still expected to buy a pass?
