Capcom undecided about PSN DRM

"It neither helped nor hindered us."

Whether Capcom will continue to use DRM on PSN games hasn't been decided, Christian Svensson informed Eurogamer.

The PSN DRM requires a constant internet connection in order to play a game. Final Fight: Double Impact and Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 both opted for the anti-game-sharing protection. But Street Fighter 3: Third Strike was DRM-free.

"Sony has a form of network DRM that we have chosen to use on a couple of titles, really as much as an experiment as anything else, to see what the impact was," Capcom's US vice president Christian Svensson told Eurogamer.

"Inconclusive, frankly," he said of the results. "As far as we can tell, it neither helped nor hindered us.

"We continue to look at it on a case by case basis."

That's that solved, then.

Third Strike.
