Oh great another Steam wannabe!

Yes I know it makes business sense to have your own store but why do they gotta force us to have their crappy Client as well?

they are gonna force this crap down our throats for the next Anno release.

Well I've been playing BF3 without Origin so I guess someone will figure out how to avoid Ubisoft's client.

more competition mean more good for us. it's not like their game off steam like ea. more sales plz

Marking down your own product isn't actually competition. Its not like Ubi and Valve are setting competitive deals on a third party product. Ubi can sell their own titles for whatever they want, Valve can't offer the same deal, for the same games, since they don't have control.

Not knocking Ubi for offering a sale. I think its great. But this notion of "competition = better for gamers" is meaningless. You don't see EA's prices going down to compete with Steam. In fact EA came out and said it won't offer discounts over 50%. Its not a competition of price. The idea that more competition = better prices is absurd.

The only competition is one of service.

Ubisoft has been trying to get back in the good graces of the PC community. So far they have been doing pretty good IMO. I applaud their efforts and hope they keep it up.

who cares! its $1 games!!!, and also for all those great another steam wannabe , Steam wont be around forever , if that was the thinking then there's would only be Atari consoles no Playstation , nintendo or xbox

robinburks1946d ago

That's how I see it. For $1 games, I'll download a client - not a problem! LOL I also think it's good that Steam is getting some competition.

Shame they don't respect their PC releases.

ninjahunter1946d ago

Their getting better though.

Kran1946d ago

*cough*

Considering every PC release to date hasn't been on the same day as a console release, I can't see them getting better any time soon.

THE LEASE they could do is add achievements. THE LEAST!

Ubi store screwed me over on farcry 2 i bought in 2010...
I do not see a purchase made on the Ubishop with this Ubisoft account. If you have purchased your game before May of 2010 your purchase will not be available.
