* Sony's DRM-bomb on PS3. Round two. FIGHT!

Playstation2/Sony
On the heels of Sony's new "we'll update you when we damn well feel like it without notice" EULA for the PS3, we have DRM-laden PS3 software coming out the door.

If you're not "connected" to the PSN, it won't load.

Final Fight: Double Impact may be a collection of retro games, but some owners of the PS3 version have discovered that it is, at heart, a little too modern. The game will not run unless the user is signed into an online PSN account. If you try to load up Double Impact while not signed in, you'll just get a curt "Sign into PlayStation Network. (80029516)" message on the screen. (The Xbox 360 version launches without issue, even when not signed into Xbox Live.)
How long till user backlash hits?
