Capcom's PSN DRM Forces Internet Connectivity for Bionic Commando Rearmed 2

"today's release of Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 on PSN contains the same DRM used by Final Fight Double Impact."

You know the one that forced you to be logged into PSN to play... so if your internet goes down, no BCR2 for you.

Capcom = Japanese Ubisoft

Couldn't say it better myself.

... I play on consoles instead of the PC because I want to AVOID all this hassle with DRM-crap and passwords and whatever.

Oh well... I hope they'll notice it in their sales.

Idiotic decisions are synonymous with Capcom nowadays.

I bought Final Fight without knowing about this BS, and I won't be making that mistake again.

Too bad, but your loss Capcom. And don't you dare bitch or make excuses if this sells poorly.

That's exactly what I was thinking lol.

This is seriously stupid. Maybe I can side with them a very slight bit when they do this to computer games, because most computers are more-or-less connected to the internet 24/7. It's still wrong to do that, but it's easier to defend it for the PC than it is for the consoles.

I don't know about all of you, but sometimes I like to disconnect my consoles from the internet so I can enjoy my games in peace and quiet, without people contacting me, worrying about downloading 2 GB updates, and basically... just playing as a lone wolf.

Forcing us to have internet connectivity is codswallop, and it's probably the biggest reason for me not wanting to pick this up now.

No, Capcom's actually worse because they're applying it to a console. At least Ubisoft had an excuse with PCs.

Speaking of which, AC2 just came to the PSN Store. Maybe that version might have DRM this time... XD

Asses. There's no reason for this.

BubloZX2874d ago

yeah that shit pissed me off with Final Fight. I remember letting a friend sign on my account on his ps3 and when he downloaded it and switched to his account it locked us both out for 24 hours. I would love to play with a friend rather than some random person......

littletad2874d ago

Wow. I hope gamers unite to attack Capcom on this. If they think this should be the norm, they are so wrong.

MasterChief36242874d ago

Indeed. Let's hope they don't do this for any future Mega Man games. :(

Gamers are retards...PC gamers clsimed to be boycotting MW2...

MW2 on pc outsold COD4's lifetime PC sales in the first week...

Gamers never boycott, when it's their parents money they have no concept of worth and so they just buy anything, no matter the cost or restrictions.
