[Toms HW] DRM Blues: Ubisoft PC Titles Rendered Useless Next Week - Page 9

post #81 of 93
Way to treat your legit customers Ubisoft. Instead of implementing DRM to punish PC gamers that actually bought your game, maybe they should focus on how to punish the pirates instead.

Not even going to bother with Ubisoft anyway, I refuse to support any gaming company or games that forces online DRM.

Any game that require you to sign on to play is not a game, it is a service. Totally worthless and silly.

DRM = Digital Restrictions Management .... why don't people just say "Digital Restrictions Management"...? not like the world understands acronyms -_- Just get irritated when people start slinging "DRM THIS!!" and "NO TO DRMs".

Ubisoft in all honest do not cease to amaze me. They really need to quit with this invasive DRM and stop punishing customers. As said before, there should be a patch issued so that Ubisoft gamers can at least play the offline element of the game while the Ubisoft servers are down. Fail way to treat your customers.

Because DRM is shorter, perhaps. Might wear out your keyboard too fast if you type Digital Restrictions Management.. tongue.gif

I don't buy ubisoft products but it's mind blowing how they aren't providing any temporary fix or even providing a target schedule for when things will be back up.

Saying "We apologize to our customers for the inconvenience." doesn't really cut it. They know they are in a controversial situation and aren't even trying to obtain their customers confidence. ...Glad I don't do business with them thumb.gif

The sad part is that their games can still be pirated. Search for a ubisoft game on a torrent site and you will get a ton of cracks. It's ironic how pirates will get to play their games while legit customers wont.

Making a pc focused game with a multiplayer that has massive replay value is a start.
