So you buy a used EA Sports game, and you want to go online to download updates or play with friends. All of a sudden, you’re hit with a $14.99 charge to access these features. Introduced in 2010, the EA online pass system is now no longer. Why was the service initially launched? They thought it was going to be a way to make money to combat used game sales, and people who pirate their games.

“Initially launched as an effort to package a full menu of online content and services, many players didn’t respond to the format,” said EA corporate communications director John Reseburg said. “We’ve listened to the feedback and decided to do away with it moving forward.”

If you’re a gamer who buys used games, or a pirater who downloads your games, REJOICE.

A new soccer simulation is set to debut next month for PC called “Lords of Football”. From the trailer, it looks like a mix of The Sims plus a little NFL Head Coach, but this has some potential to be entertaining / addicting. From the trailer, it looks like you can manage all aspects of your team – on and off the pitch.

Based on some of the screenshots, we have no idea what the hell is going on, but it sure is amusing. Here’s the trailer:

From the site:
