Downloadable PS3 Game Requires You To Be Online To Play

Sony has taken a page out of the Ubisoft DRM-bungling playbook and required gamers playing the downloadable retro game Final Fight: Double Impact to be online in order to play. According to Joystiq, this must be a Sony-only thing because the game plays fine offline on the Xbox 360.

I suppose this isn’t that big of deal, right? It’s not like Sony’s servers ever crash globally.
