[PCGamer] Ubisoft challenge Steam and Origin with Uplay - Page 2

post #11 of 197
Steam was crap when it first came out it took them years to get things working and the only reason they got things working was due to the fact that they actually licensed to the community. Orgin is crap to but people tolerate it just barley due to EA making Orgin exclusive games. Them been EA I don't see them fixing Orgin anytime soon unless they put some one new in charge. And now Ubisoft thinks it can have a piece of that pie. Yeah not going to happen. There library is just too small and I doubt they are going to sell third party games cheaper then Steam. Even if they do there is still the issue of how crap uplay is to use not to mention there dumbass terms. Its intrusive and chunky as hell though it might actually be just a smidgen better than Origin in terms of pure usability.

lol uplay probly will overtake orgin if they know how to market games and put them up for sell but im not sure they have enugh games to really become big id bet they would lose more money if they pulled all their games off steam and just used their own site.

1 dollar for From Dust? Ehh maybe, but they should just give that out for free because their DRM isn't even worth the hassle.

Can't take this seriously when Ubisoft treats PC gamers like crap by releasing games weeks/months after consoles and have crappy drm.

As long as they don't keep all there major releases off of the competitors' (or those services that they think they can compete with) clients to and force users to Uplay so they can brag about huge numbers and growth when 99% of the people using the service are literally forced to do so or not play a game they like (wink wink EA), then I say live and let live. Not that I'm gonna use it anyway. Too many clients already and I really don't like Ubisoft or their games at all anymore. Well AC3 and Rayman I may give a shot, but not if I'm forced to use or install this client in any way.

I wouldn't mind EA and Ubisoft doing this if they actually wanted to support the PC platform properly, but as it is they don't.

Ubisoft is positioning the software as a convenience, allowing gamers to launch their titles from one central location. Unlike Steam and Origin, they haven’t announced distribution opportunities for third-parties. As it stands, this is a platform for only Ubisoft releases. In reality, Uplay PC is a way for Ubisoft to cross-promote its various franchises, and capitalize on the 35million registered Uplay members it already has.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/jasonevangelho/2012/08/16/uplay-pc-ubisoft-enters-digital-distribution-space-alongside-valve-electronic-arts/

UPlay store has been around for awhile. Ubisoft likely sees digital distribution as being profitable.

And yet another reason people were against Origin rears its head.

I don't want a client for each publisher. Just no.
