Uncharted 3 to use Sony's online pass
Sony Spain software manager Juan Jimenez says nascent network pass program will be extended to Naughty Dog's upcoming adventure shooter.
In addition to depicting another skirmish between the last vanguard of humanity and the Chimera, Resistance 3 was the first game to incorporate Sony's network pass program. Now, a Sony employee has confirmed that Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception will also employ the tactic.
Speaking with Spanish-language site The Vault, Sony Spain software manager Juan Jimenez said Uncharted 3 will follow the network pass model of Resistance 3.
Drake's Deception, and other forthcoming titles that are part of the online pass program, will come bundled with a single-use code that grants users "full online access for that title." Secondhand gamers will need to pay $10 for the pass.
The online pass initiative is seen as an effort to make buying games new more attractive than buying them used (a sale that puts no money in the publisher's pocket). Electronic Arts, THQ, and Ubisoft are among the publishers that have used online passes in their own games.

[UPDATE]: A Sony representative confirmed for GameSpot that Uncharted 3 will use an online pass.
