    hi there, i'm planning to buy preowned games, as they are cheaper, and just wanted to ask if i can still play multiplayer online when i buy preowned games.

    thanks!

    You can, unless they need a code which is found in the manual as the user has probably used already used it.

    Not sure about Black Ops, but it is with Fifa. I'm not 100% sure but I think you may be able to buy a new code from the PSN Store.
