Get Your Mortal Kombat On This Weekend: Whether You've Got An Online Pass Or Not.

Mortal Kombat is perhaps the most notable multiplayer focused title to be locked out by this practice since the PSN went down, and in respect to its fanbase, Warner Bros has decided to disable the online pass until the PlayStation Store returns.

Of course, if you've bought a preowned copy of the game then you'll have to shell out for one of those passes when the PlayStation Store gets back online — but for now you'll be able to play free of charge. Which is a nice way of solving a bad situation.
