Is PSN Pass Sony's Online Pass?

A Resistance 3 bundle has surfaced clearly showcasing the words PSN Pass atop the PlayStation Move and Sharpshooter compatibility sticker. It's purely speculative at this point, but can PSN Pass be Sony's equivalent to EA, THQ and Warner Bros' Online Pass?

The Online Pass was spearheaded by EA and THQ in an initiative to combat losses suffered largely in part due to second hand sales. It requires players who purchase a second hand copy of one of their games to cough up a one-time fee of $10 in order to unlock the online portions of said games.

If PSN Pass is indeed like it, then Resistance 3 may be the first among more Sony titles to come that require pre-owned customers to give up their lunch money in order to play online.
