Final Fight: Double Impact requires net connection on PS3 to play

You may want to sit down. This probably isn’t going to go well.

People on the PS forums who have bought the PSN version of Final Fight: Double Impact are claiming that they are unable to play the game offline, saying it requires an internet connection.

Strangely enough, this doesn’t seem to affect the 360 version of the fighter at all, according to Joystiq, even when you’re signed off Xbox Live.

Tough love, PS3 lot.

    sounds like all the XBLA games I bought for the first 2 years (until my 360 stopped working) and I now want to play on the new system :-/

    TBH this sounds like a bug in the game.

    onyxbox, you can fix that by transferring all licenses to your new machine.

    Yeah i noticed this. It’s incredibly lame because if I want to bust out my PS3 in 5, 10, 15, 20, 30 years down the road, but I don’t have an internet connection (or cannot access the PSN network that far in the future), I can’t play a game I rightfully paid ownership for.
