Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 requires PSN connection (not for co-op, for DRM!)

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.
