The List: Games That Use Online Passes

Here are games known to employ some form of “online pass” or other one-use code for in-game content that is only available to gamers that purchase new copies. Games with codes only available to preorders or codes for things like Xbox Live avatar clothing are not included on this list.

By default, the list below is sorted by release date. You can click on any column to sort by that column, or type in the search box above the table to filter the list.
