So what? At least Ubisoft will get the money they deserve. Game-development is not a frigging charity; if you can't afford it then don't play and get a job instead!(not directed at you, but at pirates in general).

Take piracy away and very few of them would just quit gaming totally. They would either start buying PC games, switch to console games, play older games, something. They would not just say "oh well, guess I am done gaming." That's a ridiculous notion.

They might SAY that, as part of their BS justification, but it's a lie. They wouldn't be pirating games unless they enjoyed playing them, end of story.

Buy a 360, pay someone $25 to flash the DVD drive. Download and burn all the 360 games you want DRM free, just don't connect to Xbox Live. Once your drive is flashed you are golden with the 360, never have to worry about it again. Even Wave 4 was cracked in like a week. Pirating on the 360 is so much easier than on the PC. Everyone I work with that has a 360 has it modded. But since they still sell 6 million copies they don't really make a big deal about it.

To just say "switch to a console" doesn't mean they aren't going to pirate there.

I said if piracy were eliminated, they would ______ . That meant all piracy. I am sure some pirates would switch to consoles if piracy were eliminated since if they have to pay for their games they might as well get them dirt cheap used.

I've checked various places around the internets and doesnt seem like people are having any problems with the crack - though I would give it a few days when more people are using it.

I would check it out myself, but I dont really have any interest in silent hunter or AC2.

Maybe when splinter cell comes out :ROFL

Actually 2 situations come up when I talk to my customers. 1) youve spent a bunch of money on a game system... and a year later your financial situation changes and you can no longer afford many games. A sad fact in todays economy. 2) you can either afford a medicore system and some games, or a kick butt system and find a way to get your games for free. Power users usualy can do the latter.

To me this drm is excessive an in my eyes, ubisoft is dead. I will never recommend their games again.

Well then you don't play games and work harder.

If you can't afford buying games, then don't buy a PC.

I see no problem with it unless it actually causes issues. Remains to be seen though if it works at all.

Don't bother Toss, they make these justifications up to feel better about themselves, using logic doesn't apply.

Of course they do Because you and I live in the USA have decent jobs and can afford it. Not that it's justified because some folks live in a third world country, work harder than Americans and make a lot less money. I realize that doesn't make it right, but understand that some of these people just don't have a choice. They don't have the same quality of life you and I do. Your arrogance makes the rest of us sick.

So because they live in a third world country they should somehow get to play games for free? I also wonder where these so called poor people get the money to buy their hardware, but I'm guessing they steal that too?

People like you make this world a worse place. Socialism ftl!

It's amazing that these foreign people making $1 an hour have the money to buy a gaming rig but not games, especially when games in those areas are priced accordingly.

yea, did you even read my post?? I said it doesnt make it right and it doesnt justify it. But if you are trying to stop piracy world wide realize making a just "go buy it" comment isnt going to fix the problem. I don't know where they get the money for their hardware, why dont you ask one of them??
