    An eagle-eyed poster on the well-known NeoGaf forum, Legato8, angrily posted:

    "Hey guys, the store text for Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 on the PSN says that "You must log into the Playstation Network each time to play this game." That sure sounds like the way they did the online-only Final Fight PSN, too."

    That's not right- you apologise for the Final Fight DRM then you release another game with it in there.

    Dreamland.
    It's bad for the people that don't pirate. I don't think people like the idea of signing in each time just to play one game.

    ...? You don't fix a problem with another. Some people don't have internet access 100% of the time.

    At this rate if more developers adopt this DRM, the home consoles will die, nobody wants to put up with DRM like this.

    I'm sure they wouldn't do this if they were making (are making?) an Xbox 360 version. Since Geohot hacked the ps3, companies want to protect their assets. Its understandable, but this kind of pointless DRM will entice more people to pirate it instead of buy it. The most ludicrous part of this is it doesn't even HAVE online play. I can see more of this DRM on the ps3 in the future, but not on the 360 or wii.

    I thought this whole ps3 uproar was that homebrew and hacks were enabled not that piracy was enabled.Sorry for not keep track.

    It's really annoying that legitimate custormers are getting shit like this. For me, it means that I have to look for DRM in any game I buy. Needless to say, I won't buy games with DRM like this.

    Well at least there isn't that kind of DRM on the 360 and possibly the future PC ports.

    just buy it on disc? you are only punishing yourself buying the download, online downloads are always riddled with unfair DRM thats why i prefer buying the disc.
