Kombo's Geoff Calver writes about the draconian DRM policy instituted by Ubisoft and argues that Ubisoft's DRM isn't vital to its business but is, instead, detrimental to the extreme.
But great for ISP's.
EXACTLY... Just because developers can't code a uncrackable code doesn't mean they should take a dump on people that actually buy the game. I was gonna get this game but F that... EDIT. All I wanna say i been playing Splinter Cell Since #1 on original xbox and now that i switch to pc they wanna introduced this...
It makes me laugh the only ones that benefit are the pirates, it'll get cracked eventually, they'll just losing customers. It's a problem but they're being unreasonable.
Yea i know, look at Assassin creed 2. :/
It's tragic really. They talk about reinvigorating the pc gaming industry and then come up with these ideas. How tempting is only being allowed to play your game when they say so? This is taking pc gaming out of the game.
assassin's creed 2 is already cracked :)
Captain obvious never fails...
if i was ubisoft i would worry about the quality of the games first.
Stop making PC ports and a huge chunk of piracy will stop, it's kinda sad really, a company forced into crazy tactics to protect their IP from criminals, this is what it has come to and the next step is not porting at all...or just forget it and let the pirates have your game for free.
