That is incorrect about paying to play online.  When I first went online with the game, it says that if you do not have a code that came with the game, you will only be allowed to rank up to level 5 online.  You can still play it all you want, just wont be able to get any higher in the game.

The online pass thing kinda sucks but I can agree on their reasoning for them and EA having such a feature.  In the end, it still ends up being cheaper to by the game used and pay for the online pass in most cases.  Atleast with me, Ill rarely buy a used game for anymore than 20.00

Well atleast they are allowing you to keep playing online rather than blocking you completely.

Big?  This game is small potatoes dude.  I bet it's going to sell less on the PS3 than KZ3 has.

Already confirmed to have sold more. LINK

Homefront is multi-platform genius!  Last I checked KZ3 is a ps3 exclusive, makes sense now doesn't it?

All I did was post the numbers, no need for the sarcasm.

Well I have had a couple days to play it. I think most of the feedback is the same. Online it seems is difficult, everyone has better weapons then me! I am hoping when I level up the guns and other "extras" can come into play. Although to be fair my gameplay on COD (black ops) is the same, some good games some bad games. I do enjoy both COD and Homefront. I must say the campaign was satisfying but could have taken longer then 8 hours to beat. I was a big fan of Red Dawn, so this game was right up my alley.

I havent played it yet,but am waiting on Gamefly to get it to me, I knew I wasnt going to buy this game, its previews and concept are not impressive at all,and from what I am hearing it even failed to live up to what little hype it had, and also North Korea is just an unbeleivable occupying force, they can barely feed themselves,but somehow managed to take over Japan and the US ? , China or Russia would have made a more believabe and realistic enemy,since they are greatly more powerful and have larger militaries than North Korea, in reality China has a security pact with North Korea,so they could have made it North Korea, and China, Occupies Japan and the US,that would have been a better story

anyway, most FPS players now of days dont seem to care about the single player much, but I still do, actually its the make or break part of the game for me, and if the story doesnt make since,or is stupid and non-immersive, than I wont buy the game(Modern Warfare 2 for example),no matter the quality of multi-player

The campaign mode could have definately been longer. But it was pretty good in my opinion. Now the online has been sketchy at best. My PS3 froze twice today and when I do get the chance to play it, its jumpy. I am hoping it gets better with server fixes and what not. But if it keeps up I guess I will have to retract my praises. At least I have the new maps on COD Black Ops, or the add on content for Assassins Creed Brotherhood to occupy my time.

Homefront suck.  Messed up my PS3.  Now, I can't play "Borderlands" or anything else.  I'd rather play that other messed up game, Fallout New Vegas, than to play the trailer of Homefront.

I just upgraded my internet to the deal at ATT&T.  It's a 6 Mbps download package and is $40 per month.  That is the only way I can get green bars in my online games.  That is a lot of money to pay just to play video games.  They need to stop charging people to pay extra for used, rented or borrowed games.  I don't care if you can play up to level 5 without paying. This game is such a crappy game that you would do well to rent first.  And you shouldn't have to pay full price to rent a demo.  That's what it is when you're only allowed access to the most minimal of features.

The gap between PS3 and everything before is so huge that backwards compatibility is more important now than ever. PS3 games should be preserved.
