Capcom's Bionic Commando 2 on PlayStation Network forces gamers to log into PSN each time they want to play, according to various online reports.

A message on the game's PlayStation Store listing states: "NOTE: You must log-in to the PlayStation Network each time to play the game."

This means you'll need to be connected to PSN when you want to launch the game, but you should be fine to carry on playing if your connection to the service drops after that.

VideoGamer.com Analysis

Capcom utilised the same DRM method on its PSN release of Final Fight: Double Impact, a move which was badly received by gamers. The slight saving grace was the fact Final Fight featured an online enabled co-op mode. Bionic Commando 2, however, is strictly a single-system multiplayer game. PS3 gamers are not happy.

I've always been surprised how that 5 systems policy remained in effect so long - publishers must HATE that.

I'm guessing this will quickly become the norm.

I'm very surprised they aren't adopting the 360's approach - tied in to the console purchased on for all play (on and off-line) and gamertag, requiring verifification connection on other consoles. It makes sense!

Looks like an attempt to clamp down on the activate onto up to 5 PS3 systems as you can only be logged into one account at a time.
No sanctioned game sharing with capcom.
