It's not about pirating, it's about Ubisoft knowing that the game isn't going to generate sales simply because it doesn't live up to what we get from developers like CD Projekt and Bethesda, so they say "pirating pirating blah blah" so they don't have to use the development time and save face. It's because games like Skyrim and Witcher 2 and BF3 exist. Otherwise I wouldn't have spend $180 recently, and just miiight have bought a Ubi game. But seeing as there are better things to spend the cash on, why bother with their garbage?

TL;DR they make garbage and blame it on pirate bay.

If you actually cared and showed a little effort to the amazing things you could do on this platform, you could have the same success as Skyrim and The Witcher 2. Both of which sold extremely well on the PC.

And both of which were pirated like hell.

and both companies sold alot of copies on the PC and made nice profits.

That's a great attitude to have.

There's one company out of the PC game competition. Good thing they don't make good games. tongue.gif

The last game ubisoft that was good on pc was rainbow six 3:raven shield. Ever since then they cared less about pc. Im glad they are going away from pc. I don't need their crap or even want it on my hard drive.

Attention Ubisoft: Please give up on PC games all together and move on with the development of your console games. We're sick and tired of hearing your lame excuses as to why you can no longer be competitive in the PC Game Market. Leave it to the professionals. Accept it and move on. We've had enough already. kthxbai

Damn. I've played the hell out of Ghost Recon games and was REALLY looking forward to this one. I think Ubisoft is worse than pretty much every other company when it comes to PC care. Even Activision gives us care. All we get are ports, but we gets ports without any drama and fuss.
Ubisoft is probably losing a lot of money, blaming it on PC, and cutting corners wherever possible to get out of their whole. And they are trying to get out of it by making less and less quality stuff to get more money.
I have an idea, put a little effort into a game and the money will come to you. I can't remember the last good game that didn't actually sell. Stop blaming your customers for having no interest in spending their money on your product. It's just pathetic and I'd rather see Ubisoft go down the drain before I support their ego.

And nothing of value was lost. Seriously I can't remember the last time Ubisoft made a great game since Far Cry.

If a dev focuses too much on piracy you get what we call Ubisoft.

Piracy will never end, so if you continue developing for a platform around it you're just encouraging it.

I guarantee you if it was easy to pirate on consoles it would be much worse. Yea, you could google how to pirate on a console, but it's not as easy as PC where you just go to a site and DL + Install.

So basically.. give customers a good reason to buy your product and they will. Build up your rep and the sales will come.

For ubisoft though it's over for them on this platform. They've dug their own grave. I see no redemption for them.

There is no greater incentive than free stuff. Simply making a good game/movie/album/book/idea doesn't mean people won't pirate it. Also, if a game was so bad, why would you steal it in the first place?

IMHO it is cause they are misguided, in believing if they pirate it, instead of buying it, then this will send a message to the company that they should do more for the PC platform next go around.
