UFC Undisputed 2010 requires code to access online multiplayer

Gaming industry, we’d like you to meet our friend Project Ten Dollar.

He’s here to stay.

Looks like THQ’s been taking lessons from EA Sports. Or at least it would, if THQ hadn’t beaten EA and Tiger Woods to the punch by a couple weeks – albeit, at a different price point.

Releasing on May 28, UFC Undisputed 2010 will cage-off online cage-fighting from players without an online activation code.

“This multiplayer content for UFC Undisputed 2010 will be available via a one-time code included with the game at purchase. Codes for accessing the content will be available for second-time buyers for an additional $5,” THQ said in a statement to Destructoid.

Used Game Market has Videogame Industry against the ropes. Blow after blow rains down. Oooo, that’s not pretty. But then, out of nowhere, Videogame Industry uncorks a left hand that gains immediate legal classification as an 18-wheeler. Knockout!

    Wow, this has a few ways of going down:

    1) People saving or selling codes for re-sell.
    2) People waiting for cheaper price-points. Forcing Publisher to reduce price of game, so gamer keeps game at substational savings. Which hurt sales forecast of publisher.
    3) People buying game and just not bother with online ^_^

    any other ideas, but gamers are resilient when it comes to saving money. ;)

    will these online passes replace xbox live fee? /end sarcasm.

    I don’t care if they lose money on used game sales. Blocking consumers of used games from playing online is ridiculous. Sale them extra content or something, not a Michael Pachter pass for Christ sake.

    online blows in this game anyway.. THQ offers no post release support at all for the first one..no new fighters to download.. no stats adjustment from wins and losses in fights.. i bet 2010 sells less than 2009 did.
