EA announced a few weeks ago that they were killing off the Online Pass system due to feedback from gamers. Now, Electronic Arts is offering free passes to some of the most popular older games in its catalog. Is EA being nice? Or could this be further confirmation that the next gen PS4 and Xbox One will have a online activation code or DRM built into the system?

Either way, this is good news for gamers for the time being. EA also just told CVG that they will continue to discontinue the Online Pass system for all existing EA titles over the next several weeks.

EA is offering free DLC and Online packs on Xbox Live today. Is this the beginning of the end? Or a new beginning?
