Apparently Ubisoft has announced that all of their future games will require a constant internet connection to play and to save the game, even when playing single player. Linky If you're playing and your net is disconnected for some reason, the game pauses and waits for it to be re-established  Razz I mean, even with Steam we can play most games in offline mode. You might think that so what, I always have my net connection on? But do you? I've yet to meet an ISP who can guarantee a flawless connection working 100% all the time. If it would be just for Ubisoft games then fine, but I'm worried that other companies might start thinking this is a good idea. I haven't been a huge user of pirated games before, but this trend makes me wonder... Basically it seems that soon we might have two choices: Pay nothing and play as you want, or pay a lot of money and play when and how the company publishing the game allows you to. Since if they implement this, I seriously doubt it wouldn't be cracked the next day.

Good thing that Ubisoft only makes shit games. But that's a true dick move right there.

Again, devlopers are hurting their real consumers.

Online requirement to play the game? "no problem" says the pirate, "that's only 4 mb more for the torrent file, matey."

Well lets hope people will stop buying Ubisoft games after this, and other companies will start thinking that maybe it wasn't such a good idea after all...  Very Happy

They do have some good games, like the Tom Clancy series or Assassin's Creed.

Rainbow Six died when Ubisoft took it over imo.  Sad
They also managed to completely ruin what might be the best arcade game of all times(TMNT4).

Either way, this is a bad thing whatever my personal view on Ubisoft is.
They must've been on crack during that board meeting. Hope it fails to say the least.

Rock, Paper, Shotgun reports that Ubi's DRM has been cracked already, one day after the first game using it was released: http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2010/03/04/has-ubis-drm-been-cracked-already/  Razz [Insert funny "Epic fail" -pic here]
