Ninja Gaiden 3 Online Passes Aren’t Working

There’s something incredibly poetic about a publisher trying their hand at something considered evil by the fans only to have it blow up horribly and hilariously wrong. Turns out those digging into Ninja Gaiden 3 are noticing they can’t log into the online servers, even with the use of the included online pass.

We reported on the online pass being used for the game two weeks ago. The game came out Tuesday, and tons of people are reporting that the online pass is completely useless. Players have been able to purchase a new online pass through Xbox Live and PlayStation Network, but that seems pretty counter-productive, no?

Tecmo Koei hasn’t commented on this yet.

What say you, gamers? Has this affected you?
