    The game, much like Final Fight Double Impact, requires a constant PSN connection to even play the game on your PS3. Bad, bad, bad. Will not download.

    I will just wait for a sale on this one, Pac-Man is still eating up all my free time.

    Why do they require this?

    Dunno. I guess they think it will stem piracy of the game somehow. PSN piracy isn't exactly lighting up the world right now.Had I known that Final Fight had this, I would have skipped it. I sincerely hope gamers will skip the PS3 version and go with the 360 version, which will likely not have this restriction (as Final Fight did not).

    I had no idea it did this or it was a real issue. Is your console not permanently connected to the net while it's on?

    Nope. Fast internet is not a luxury that I have. Being online only slows my gaming down. I log in later at night, but during the day, I try to keep it offline.

    Ah ok, the only other game I can think of that has this need for constant internet access is Worms. Which boggles my mind also. :lol 

    I think if the price drops on this I may pick it up as I'm in no real rush to play any more Bionic Commando

    I wonder if it may be because PSN ID sharing is pretty rampant, or at least was last I heard, and Sony hasn't seemed to care up to this point or surely they would have put a stop to it in a firmware update. Maybe Capcom DOES care though.

    But the developer (Capcom) can simply disable the ability to play the game by other PSN ID's. Effectively meaning unless you're signed into the console with YOUR ID, then it cannot be played.

    I'll be getting this. Is it fanboyish of me to wonder why they added a jump? Back in the day it was what made the game unique. Well, that and of course the strategy of using the grappling hook. I have faith it will still be fun, but it's almost like making a mario game where... he doesn't jump, I guess.

    I agree that it sucks, but since there is no PC version, and I don't have an xbox, this is my only choice.

    It has a mode where you can play with jumping disabled.

    I played the demo of this and wow, it is not so good. I don't care one way or the other about the whole freakout about adding the jump button, but it is implemented very, very poorly. The animation is stiff and the physics are awkward. At no point in the demo did I find a place where jumping made something easier.

    I still would like to get it eventually and see if it gets better, but it went from instant buy to wait for a really good sale.
