Do you still need an Online Pass to play a second hand copy?

EA announced in May that they were scrapping the Online Pass, anyone know if this has extended to Battlefield 3 yet?

Thanks, I went to the game shop earlier and the guy said you did need a pass, I thought that didnt add up with what I read but thought I'd check online then go back another day, better safe than sorry

Actually, I think you do still need an online pass, the difference is that it's now free to download instead of costing 1200 MSP. But, you know, same thing, lol.

Yeah you still have to download it from the Marketplace but it is now free. New copies of the game also will still come with a free redemption code.
