Sims 3 Consoles to use Online Pass

EA has recently introduced a new system to help the “battle” against second hand game sales and piracy: the online pass. They first started using this system in its EA Sports titles, but now also started to implement it in some of their other titles.

One of these titles is the Sims 3 on consoles (Xbox 360 and PS3). In order to use the games’ online features (the exchange and community features) you need to enter the online pass code. When you buy the game new, you don’t have to worry as the online pass is included. But if you buy it from a friend or second hand you might have a code that’s already been used in which case you could buy a new code.

You can play the game normal without the online pass. However if you want to use the exchange you’ll need to enter the online pass. Again this only applies for the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game.
