Ubisoft drops its intrusive 'always on' internet DRM


#1

It seems they have seen the error of their ways… of have they? Only time will tell.

Oh yeah, I saw that. I wonder what kind of draconian alternative they’ll come out with :stuck_out_tongue:


#3

They’ve actually eased up on their DRM a while ago. AC Revelations was already a one-time activation deal when it launched.


#4

^^

What Maxey said. It will be a one time online activation at installation.


#5

That was quite an…evasive interview.

Oh to be a corporate talking head.


#6

I’ve become a rebel, I don’t trust no corporates no more!


#7

lol! Evasive? Hell, he was pulling a Matrix bullet time dodge on some of those questions.


#8

nooo spoilers :frowning:


#9

Ezio dies of AIDS.


#10

Really? I would’ve thought a tomahawk to the head. Imagine that…


#11

Ezio used to be a master assassin but then he took a tomahawk to the knee.

…I know I’m sorry.


#12

Yes, accurately describing obviously-evasive business speak is clearly a statement of intent against the man.


#13

Interesting read. That part where they discussed sales - I’m a bit amazed at how small the PC gaming market seems to be getting… personally I prefer my PC over consoles.


#14

Excuse me? I wasn’t talking about you. :expressionless:


#15

What if ubisoft are actually templars and they are trying to win the trust of the PC gamers by getting rid of drm?


#16

^ BWAHAHAHAHA

…It’s probably true…

QUICK CALL THE ASSASSINS
