Ubisoft Reveals Uplay Passport Pricing

We recently reported that Ubisoft are the latest major publisher to implement online passes in an attempt to curb used games sales. Today, they've confirmed that the codes will cost £7.99 on the Playstation Network and 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live - and will unlock both online multiplayer and "exclusive features."

It's also technically more than a pound cheaper on the Xbox 360 at the normal exchange rate (£6.80). Worth bearing in mind when you're weighing up the used vs new costs.

Naturally, new copies will ship with a Uplay Passport, and only pre-owned customers will need to fork over the asking price. The scheme is set to begin with Driver: San Francisco when it releases on September 2nd - and we'd really like to get your take on it.

as much as i hate this i'm thinking in the long term, the price of new games will plummet and they may just shoot themselves in the foot with this decision, there are thousands of us out there who used to buy new games at full price, complete them within a week and sell them on but now i will wait for the price to drop to under £20 or less before i buy it

This is more than a little bit annoying. If Ubisoft plan on being the first company to make a public show of greed, then I don't think I'll bother with the next in the Assassin's Creed series, I'd feel like I'm selling out.

Now, when you finish a game, all you can do is place it in the recycling bin! What is a gamer supposed to do if he finishes the game in 5 hours ?

These game studios keep getting greedier everyday!
