Ubisoft Clanger: Could the Latest Hacking Sound the Knell for PC Gaming?

Planet Ivy: The news that Russian hackers had fooled Ubisoft’s Uplay distribution platform into allowing unrestricted access to their games, even unreleased ones, was at first met with unbridled jubilation. Exciting, hilarious footage of upcoming Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon spread across YouTube and Liveleak as the publisher desperately tried to remove it, but unlike traditional clips from unscrupulous alpha testers, this was the full version being played by end users. The tide quickly turned as the repercussions for the industry as a whole were calculated. (Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, PC, Ubisoft)

Maybe, and this is just a thought, this could only kill UPlay, which everyone hates already.
