Online Pass Coming to Battlefield 3 (DUH)

The biggest formula change in EA's portfolio has easily been the EA Sports label where Madden, Tiger Woods, and FIFA franchises now require codes to play online.

As much as I feel the pain of anyone trying to save a buck, I'd rather have new copies of my games anyway. Was Battlefield 3's online pass surprising at all?
