Good business, but counter-productive

Developer David Jaffe of Twisted Metal fame would like to see the latest installment in the Twisted Metal franchise come without an online pass. While he admits that the use of the online pass is “probably good business,” it is counter-productive when trying to earn the trust of the gamers buying the games.

The problem is that the decision to use or not use an online pass isn’t his to make, and ultimately it is not his call. Sony will make the decision in the end; and since they are moving forward with this strategy it is unlikely that they will pick and choose where and where not to apply it.
