Well I think 95% of the people that wanted to play it already did so on the console. Its sad so many people would rather settle for crappy framerates and lackluster graphics because they are just so impatient. Then again, if the PC version launched at the same time and UBISOFT wasn't able to use a delayed launch to push more people to their precious 360 platform maybe the sales figures would be better on the PC. UBISOFT is trying their best to kill PC gaming while blaming it on piracy. /scapegoat

Too many are busy playing Bad Company 2 and Modern Warfare 2. Maybe if AC2 had more guns and tanks it would really sell. <sic>

I just sent an e-mail to Ubisoft telling them that I was going to purchase this game (and I was) but like any game using DRM I will NOT purchase it. In fact if you gave me a game with DRM I would not use it. Yea I'm bitter

no offense, then you must not play a single game then, because 99% of games have DRM.

that includes consoles and PCs.

Yea, it's just another annoyance. I'm to the point where I do not want to support things that I cannot stand. I'm sure it's a great game, I have the first one and it's really well done. Maybe ill simmer down on DRM and get it someday.

True but, with this game (from my understanding) you half to have an internet connection to be able to play the game. That is just stupid.

A lot of games require an internet connection to play, it is the constant connection that is different with Ubi. If you have a constant connection though, it's really just principle you have to be angry over, and principle wise Steam and others are just as bad if you ask me.

is not that bad, and boycotts won't help, just will make things worse. ubi tried going DRM free it didn't work

plus ubi did say that after a year or so they will patch it out.
