gamestop (corporate deush execs) will screw end-users who buy socom FTB 3 knowing that online play will require an activision fee but they won't choose to let the customer know because then the used game would not be sold. this dilemma will continue on by gamestop and other stores alike if sony adopts drm for all other games.
yet if sony chooses to take drm even further to make games completely registrable (campaign & online) for full access then gamestop will get screwed. think about it, drm is perhaps being aimed at the commercial used-game markert and at piracy. two birds with one shot! it sounds like a sony strategy alright.
i've been using gamefly (netflix for video games) since last year. i have saved a lot money and fits of anger from buiying shitty games or those 3-5 hr of gameplay games. shipping times are good, you can hold on to game for as long as you want. you can also get a new game release send to you and then keep it for a lower price than what gamestop or walmart sells it for.
