THQ Locks UFC 2010's Online For Second Hand Purchases

THQ today announced that they would follow in the footsteps of EA and EA Sports with its Online Pass, by locking the online features of UFC 2010 for those who don't purchase the game brand new.
After a leaked copy of UFC 2010 hit the net and the discovery was made, THQ stated that all new copies of the game would come with an unlock code for the online modes while those who get their hands on a non-new copy will have to pay $5 to unlock them.
This is likely to annoy those second hand purchasers out there, but I'm fairly sure THQ and co won't lose any sleep over customers whose money they don't see.
Welcome to the new industry trend, with EA heavily backing it, Ubisoft considering it and now THQ on board, I have a feeling this may spread like wildfire.
