Default Almost all Ubisoft titles to use Internet-based DRM

http://www.joystiq.com/2010/03/01/sp...to-use-intern/

Quote:
Softpedia reports that an Ubi rep (speaking with PC Gamer) has confirmed Splinter Cell: Conviction, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, Silent Hunter 5: Battle of the Atlantic, and the recently announced Ghost Recon: Future Soldier to employ the DRM tools. The publisher also specifically pointed out that different titles handle the loss of data differently -- for instance, AC2 depends on checkpoints and The Settlers 7 saves wherever you last were -- though PC Gamer supposedly pressed for an answer to the question on all our minds: Will every PC game from Ubisoft in the future have this DRM?
Quote:
Cryptically, the publisher replied, "It's hard for us to say, yes, from now until the day that we all die all of our games are going to include this but most will."
Sounds like they trust this DRM alot, lets hope it works out for them. Less piracy on their major releases might mean better support for the platform.

God I hope this works.

And if it doesn't, God I hope they stop using it.

Won't be buying any of those games so I'm not concerned.

I don't know... I love the Ghost Recon series and if the new one offered the same then I am really interested in it.

If I was really outraged I could see skipping most of those, but there is no way in hell I am not playing Splinter Cell Conviction. It could have an Ubisoft rep inside the package who watches you play for all I care.

That said I am not outraged and will buy most of these, so whatever.

IF it works.

Im thankful that it will be developed without Grin. Such a subpar developer that got more praise then they deserved.

The problem with DRM tools is that they mostly hurt people who actually buy the game rather than the .

No DRM has ever affected me.

Pirates will always find a way around any DRM scheme, so idk why they keep pushing out all these new ones. There WILL be someone out there that WILL crack it, upload it, and pirates will continue to enjoy games no matter what.

All these new DRMs just hurt the "legit" gamers more than the pirates.

Rather give them a fight then just let them have their way with the game without a struggle. Not like they would go "oh no DRM, I guess I should buy it!"

Companies will keep trying... no one likes giving stuff away for free.

Finding a decent DRM system that actually stops piracy and is not too horrible is in the best interests of everyone.

But I think we'll just see a pretty straight forward port this time. The previous GRAW PC version were quite different compared to the 3rd persons console junk.
The consoles versions were about 100 times better, actually.
