This has to be viral, that is too glamorous for a hacking, plus, would Ubisoft have "taken care" of it by now? It's been over 3 hours since they tweeted about it, and why would you post a link to the hacked site? Isn't this the kind of thing you want to keep under wraps for not only internal reasons but for the security of your viewers as well? (what if the hacker has a script that installs something on your machine, screws up your browser, etc?)

Seems kinda fishy to me.

if it were real, they would have taken the website down by now..

More like you fail. You obviously have never heard of viral marketing before. Nice try downplaying the teaser though.

No Ubisoft fails. I like their games but the marketing is lame.

I'm gonna go with viral too. Russians are a favourite game baddie; knowing Tom Clancy, the terrorists with the nukes originate in Russia.

If the website is actually hacked, it would be very ironic.

ThanatosDMC3247d ago

I hope somebody really hacks their site then... nah, i like Ubi right now for Ass Creed 2.

Viral campaign, not really hacked as some might believe

Those hackers are stupid. They think a video game website should be extremely secure or something?

Get a damn life

Dude, this is viral, it's staged.

Timesplitter143247d ago (Edited 3247d ago )

Yeah ok I can see that now. I actually didn't bother clicking the link but now that I see it's an elaborate flash animation with a useless "cool-looking" background...

100% confirmed viral

This is just dumb. It's like they think we're all stupid. If I was in charge, I would've just put a blank page with the name of the hacker team written in plain text in the top-left corner or in the middle
