There's a reason you can't play the PSN version of Final Fight: Double Impact without an active Internet connection. It's protected by DRM.
In an official response on the matter, Capcom confirmed to us that the game is protected by DRM. The confusion has stemmed from the simple fact that Capcom didn't mention the necessity in the full game details. It is an "unfortunate" oversight made in the Asian version of the game as well, but not the European.
"Capcom would like to formally apologize for the issues consumers are having with the PS3 version of Final Fight: Double Impact," the statement reads. "Typically, the notification for a required PlayStation Network connection appears in the full game description when a game is downloaded from the PlayStation Store.
"Unfortunately when populating this content this detail was overlooked and wasn't included in the versions of the game that released in North America and Asia."
Capcom told us that they are working with SCEA about this and "a fix is on the way." You can read their full response below the fold.
