In an effort to combat used-sales of games, Sony has confirmed that Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception will require a PSN Pass for online play.
The PSN program, which requires customers to input a one-time use code to access a game's online capabilities, was intrudced earlier this year and first implemented in Resistance 3.
Sony España Software Manager Juan Jiménez confirmed when speaking to The Vault, that a code will have to be input to utilize the game's online features. If gamers do decide to purchase a used copy of the game, they will need to purchase a $10 code from the PlayStation Store to unlock the ability to play online.
Early access to Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception multiplayer experience began Saturday, October 1 thanks to a Subway promotion. Those who visited participating Subway Restaurants and purchased one of the specially marked Uncharted 30 oz drinks, received a code that provided access to the full competitive multiplayer experience throughout the month of October.
The full competitive multiplayer experience gives the chance to dive into the fun and get a head start on leveling up your profile while learning all of the new Uncharted 3 multiplayer maps before the full game is released on Tuesday, November 1st.
