If you thought purchasing first-party Sony software would spare you from the dreaded online pass phenomenon, I'm afraid it won't. Especially if you're picking up Resistance 3 today. Insomniac's shooter kicks off Sony's new first-party online pass program, which must be active before you can hop online and start blasting your friends with alien weaponry. However, there's a catch; unlike recent online pass strategies, Resistance 3's won't be restricted to just one account on the console.
So, while the online pass can't be registered on multiple consoles, you can register as many accounts on your own console, which is vital for dual log-in where two players can hop online together. It's vital all potential Resistance 3 owners sign up for the online pass, as without it you won't be able to access any of the multiplayer modes. [Quarter Disorder]
