I’ve never been a supporter of Project Ten Dollar or any of the various online passes that have come out of publishing companies in the past, but unfortunately these things look like they will soon become the norm. Ubisoft announced today that they will be entering into the ranks of those fighting Used Game sales.
Ubisoft says that the Uplay Passport will work like other online passes, meaning it will include a code that has to be put into the game to access certain features. The first game that will have this Uplay Passport is Driver: San Francisco. There hasn’t been any announcement of whether or not the Uplay Passport will cost $10 for those who purchase it used yet. I mean I can understand the reason that publishers use these methods, but it really is just a disservice to the community and their fans.
