Ubisoft scraps Driver's online pass fee

Uplay Passport codes printed incorrectly.

Ubisoft has scrapped the online pass fee for Driver: San Francisco.

Uplay Passport codes were printed incorrectly in some boxes, explained Xbox Live support.

This meant that first-hand buyers were given "invalid" error codes and restricted access from 11 Driver: San Francisco multiplayer modes and the Film Director mode.

To get a new code, you would usually need to spend £8 on PS3 or £6.80 on Xbox 360. It's a way of making money from second-hand sales.

In order to solve this printing problem, however, Ubisoft has had to waive the fee.

The Ubisoft website explains:

"When you begin Driver: San Francisco, you are prompted with the Uplay Passport menu. The menu has 4 options: "Purchase Uplay Passport," "Activate my Uplay Passport," "Start my 2-Day Free Trial," or "Remind Me Later".

"There are two ways to access these online features:

"1. Select Start My 2-Day Free Trial, which will not expire, OR

"2. Select Purchase Uplay Passport, which will be provided at no charge.

"Either option will unlock the 11 multiplayer modes and the Film Director feature on console titles with Uplay Passport.

Which is better, Driver on PS3 or 360?
