Assassin´s Creed II Discussion
Exactly. As the saying goes, "Put up or shut up". If the game is worthy enough of your attention that you want to play it, then it should be worthy enough for yo to part with you cash to buy the game.
That said, Ubisoft sure hasn't learnt anything since the great circus that surrounded their old starforce DRM. You would have at least expected that in this age for something like this to definitely happen. Yet they still get caught flatfooted. They're their own worst PR =/.
(Ubi stated on its Twitter feed that their servers were “attacked " , which limited service from 2:30pm to 9pm Paris time.”
Ubisoft added that “95%" of players were not affected, but a "small group" of players attempting to open a game session did receive denial of service errors.”)
Perhaps the morons are in another world cuz its the other way around.
Hopefully Ubisoft hears the cries and sees that this DRM has done nothing to protect against piracy.
So if this DRM doesn't stop piracy WHY is it even in there in the first place. Sins of a Solar Empire didn't have DRM yet it sold very well.
i think everybody who posted on this thread must take a step back and click on the link provided by Ndition and read.
Somehow this is not just about the DRM anymore - you, DAB, are being equally narrow minded to the people in the post (and elsewhere) complaining about the DRM.
There are a few things that can count as facts here:
1) The DRM will ONLY affect/hurt legit buyers of the game. (Crackers have found a way around and will not be bothered if/when the servers fail - such as the DDoS on them recently, whereas legit customers are dependant on said systems and their quality.)
2) Ubisoft has every right to implement said DRM - no one can say this is a "faulty" or "erroneous" move.
3) Pointlessly whining about the DRM is equally retarded to pointlessly defending it. Face it - there are advantages and disadvantages with every DRM.
4) The DRM will NOT lead to increased or decreased sales whatsoever. (Sins of a Solar Empire is a beautiful example of the "other side"; no DRM (except for the fact that you have an easier time patching the game if you own it) and it still sold really well.)
I will not take a certain side in the conflict, but I do firmly believe that said DRM will do nothing but hurt Ubisoft and the buyers of the game - the customers are the ones that have to pay for Ubi putting the copy protection measures in there, while it should be the pirates who have to pay.
