BC Rearmed 2 demands PSN connection

Capcom details anti-piracy measures.

PlayStation 3 users looking to enjoy Bionic Commando: Rearmed 2 must have an active PlayStation Network connection whenever they boot the game up, Capcom has revealed.

According to Joystiq, a message pops up once the game has downloaded explaining, "NOTE: You must log-in to the PlayStation Network each time to play the game."

Seeing as Capcom's platformer has no online component, it seems this is some kind of DRM measure. Great news if you're anti-piracy, not so good if you've got an unreliable internet connection.

The game launched on PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade today. Eurogamer's Chris Schilling gave it 6/10, insisting "it's a disappointing backwards step from its flawed but fascinating forebear."
