Treyarch See Preowned As A Problem

Treyarch community manager Josh Olin has confirmed the upcoming Call of Duty: Black Ops title won't be employing any online multiplayer incentive similar to EA or THQ's 'Online Pass' when bought new, though admits it's an intriguing technique:
“We don’t plan to do anything like that for Black Ops, but it is interesting to see how that’s going to work out for EA and THQ. It’s no secret that pre-owned game sales do pose problems for developers and publishers, so it’ll be interesting how well that works to mitigate that issue.”
Treyarch will no doubt have Activision's Bobby Kotick breathing down their neck to maximise the rather sexual looking Black Ops title, so time will tell to see how things pan out.
