Cry me a river.

PC gamers were all "Piracy needs to stop, find a way!" and now that Ubisoft has implemented an authenticity checker every time you start a game, everyone is all "THIS IS RIDICULOUS".

ummm. I dont think any PC gamer was saying that. That was the Publishers like Ubisoft.

PC gamers were then saying "Hey dont hassle your paying customer more than someone who is pirating the game."

You know I was reading Reddit, that site is amazing, but wow, what a bunch of whiners, This whole Boycott ubi DRM makes me LOL just as hard as everyone on MW2 boycott. What I mean here;
http://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comme...aa_company_of/

Just looking at all the comments, people inform them Ubi eased it, but just LOOK HOW MANY complain!!!!

People post "OMG NOT BUYING CONSTANT NET REQUIRED" when ubi just eased it a little, plus... I never have my net die while playing a game, unless its storming really bad outside. I understand some people may not have the best of things, but if your net is going off all the time while playing, you probably arnt that big of a gamer or MP gamer that that anyways. So QQ less.

Sorry, it's getting sad now how people are still so against this. People are missing the great Assassin Creed 2 gameplay, play it on consoles if you still hate Ubi DRM, AC is a fantastic series, and it goes un noticed by so many because of their bandwagon.

yes, lets hate on people who stand by their beliefs.

I'm sorry that i dont appreciate being treated like a criminal by someone who i buy a product from.


The thing is I BOUGHT THE GAME. YOU GOT MY SUPPORT, AND NOW YOU ARE TREATING ME LIKE I AM STEALING FROM YOU.

Thats how i feel about it. Pirates can play the games without all the hassle that paying customers go through.

Ubisoft is a for-profit corporation. Customers don't have to buy something they don't like. If Ubisoft knows what is good for them, they would want to please their potential customers.

Anyone remember splinter cell chaos theory and its starforce DRM?
i CANT install that game on my PC because of its stupid DRM, but i can download it and use my key to play.... that should not happen! if i bought hte game i should be entitled to play it anytime i want, not when the DRM wants.


why should AC2 have DRM anylonger? it did its job, protecting early pirates, and making the most out of the first weeks, where they get the most income.
Now that the game is easily pirated, the DRM does NOTHING, so it should be removed.


i understand ubisoft, but screwing the consumer is not right. this DRM isnt outrageous at the moment... but if we let companies continue, it will be.


my point is that ubisoft has a conflict of interests, on one hand they want to protect their game, and on the other, the measure they are using is making people not happy, people who buy their games...

i truly think the approach ubisoft is making isnt the best one, but they did say that Prince of Persia the forgotten sands(2010) would not have DRM and if it sold well, they would think on removing the DRM.

saldy no more news about that has been released. probably due to bad sales... but i think thats because the game isnt that good.

PC gamers want to play their damn game. We're tired of spending sixty bucks on crappy games and then being treated like we're terrorists with DRM.


Say you bought a new Ford truck, and to deter car theft, it has the following rights management features:

Drive on Ford approved roads
run on Ford approved fuels
tow Ford approved trailers
use Ford approved tires
drive for only Ford approved drivers
Drive only when Ford can keep tabs on it
only go off-road if/when Ford approves
Carry only Ford approved cargo in the bed.
If you resell it the buyer has to pay a fee to Ford to be added to the approved drivers list


If one of those rules is broken the brakes jam on full blast and the engine shuts off.


Would you be happy? Hell no. You'd be on the phone with lawyers trying to find a way to sue Ford. So why's it any different with games? Why should we be told when we're allowed to play a game we bought?!

PC gaming isn't dying, but if there's one thing that can kill it, it's people like you who accept the inane and draconian restrictions crappy devs put on their honest customers, restrictions the pirates have no problem defeating within a few days of release. If you want to combat piracy you need to make the legit copy more enticing than the free one. Maybe it's multiplayer access, maybe it's maps you can hang on your wall, maybe it's heavily discounted, who knows. Maybe the game is just good. You never see Valve, Bethesda, Bioware QQing about piracy and throwing inane DRM at us, do you? They know their games are easily pirated, yet they don't care. They made a game so good honest customers would rather buy it to support them.

I stopped reading your rant when you began comparing automobiles to video games. You're overreacting, sorry.

At least I'm not bending over and lubing up because a company QQs about piracy and adds DRM instead of making good games. I have enough integrity to not give up my rights.



Have fun getting shafted with your over glorified rentals.

I really don't see anything wrong with buying a video game, installing it, and having it check for authenticity every time I launch it.

A lot of people were angry over it requiring a constant internet connection, so they listened & dropped it to just checking for authenticity every time you launch that specific game.

But apparently that's not good enough for some people.

Oh, by the way. You're still overreacting
