When Capcom apologized
for including anti-sharing DRM
in its PSN release of Final Fight: Double Impact
, it wasn't because it had a change of heart on the technology – which required players to be signed into PlayStation Network to play the game – but rather because it failed to alert users to its presence.
With yesterday's release of Bionic Commando Rearmed 2
on PSN, the Big C made sure to remedy that shortcoming with the follow notice on the game's listing: "NOTE: You must log-in to the PlayStation Network each time to play the game." While Final Fight: Double Impact
could at least boast an online cooperative element (in both its Final Fight
and Magic Sword
offerings!), Rearmed 2's
co-op is an adamantly offline-only affair, like its predecessor. If you've got a religious objection to digital rights management (or a shaky internet connection!) consider yourself warned.
