It is possible to sign into your account on one other system at a time and download content. You can only have two PS3s with activated downloadable content at a time. You don't have to be playing on the account with the online pass purchased on it to work. That being said, Sony/Naughty Dog don't deserve the ten dollars from an online pass considering how poor the game was and how they don't even host dedicated servers.

This big time.

I too very much understand this is a trophy related website so this question is legit but if you're buying a game and a pass just for a trophy the point of gaming is perhaps being lost. Sure enjoy the trophies, I do, but enjoy gaming first and foremost. Everyone to their own though.

I don't agree. I think it's fair enough that one account can play the game online, you can login on other PS3's with that account and continue to play online. But why should you be able to download the pass and play on a complete different account? It comes down to the fact that, like it or loathe it, gaming is business and ND want to continue to make a return from the second hand market, it continues to pay for the servers and of course their profits.

I'm on the fence with online passes (although I buy most my MP games new so it doesn't really effect me), but I can see why companies are doing it. If it means online environments are kept online for longer then that's a good thing. If it wasn't for an online pass ND could pull the plug on U3 online in the future making the unobtainable.

I have never really had need to complain about using/purchasing an online pass, then again, my platinum trophy has never relied on the fact that I cannot get online to play 1 single game of multiplayer. I miss-like online-reliant trophies as it is. I literally played 2 games online to get the online trophies on Uncharted 2 because I don't enjoy third person shooters very much.

I didn't buy mine second hand I am currently borrowing the game from a friend to save cash. I'm glad I didn't rent it as I first intended because I would have felt cheated then. I won't be buying a code so unless I find a way around it, alas there will be no platinum for me =/

I won't say that the online pass is a rip-off. I will say it is based on greed. It is just another way to make more money. I'm not saying it is never worth it because I believe UC is very worth it but there are companies that rake in trillions of dollars (may be a little exaggerated) and still require an online pass. I love all games but there are some that I have had to avoid because of that. But there are plenty of options out there and it looks like the Online Pass is here to stay.

Who goes to work to earn the money that pays for the games?

It's hard to believe a mature adult with financial responsibilites would call everyone who buys used games dipshits for being less fortunate and having less money.

Well said. I don't like buying games used but sometimes that's all that's available at the store(don't like to buy online). I'm not a fan of buying used but I will grab a used copy for lesser games that aren't high on my list. Online pass fine, but I like to let my kids play my games and vice verse. The online pass can make this a tough one as I bought ACR, Resistance 3, and UC3 new, one for one kid, one for another kid, and one for me. I want to play theirs and they want to play mine. I'm not going to pay 20 more dollars each game just so we can all play online. That's my issue.
