EA Sports, the hottest sports gamemaker around, is setting a new trend, saying you'll have to pay double to play your used games fully. You'll first have to buy the game at the store, and you'll then have to pay EA $10 to reactivate multiplayer services.  (Source: Daily Radar)

I completely agree. While the BS public relations response about how this will help them deliver blah blah blah was expected, its easy to see through the smoke. Once the game is sold, it makes absolutely no difference on their end whether the original buyer or someone new is playing it. This is simply a ploy to milk more money out of their customers. It's a disturbing trend that helped push me away from the MMORPG genre too. If these companies think I will be shelling out more money for the same amount of product, they are greatly mistaken. There really hasn't been many great games lately as it is, charging more for them won't make me want them more.
