Ubisoft DRM servers go down, stopping play.

Glad to see I have to suffer for not having been a thief. Makes me want to advocate piracy just to spite Ubisoft.

How predictable. Anyone surprised ?

At least those who pirated the game can still play it, so its only the paying customers who are getting screwed by Ubisoft. So everything’s just normal and its business as usual in the Ubisoft universe. Nothing new there.

What a company of A$$holz.

For those affected who heard that this game was going to use nasty DRM before they bought it, this is the consequence they have to face of not voting with their wallet!

I also wonder how long into the future these games will be playable for before they figure it’s not worth keeping their activation servers running. Even though music/video DRM is bad enough, at least authenticated music & movies will continue to play on existing equipment once the DRM server goes down.

People really need to stop buying these DRM infected games.

Didn’t Sony once have a music service…
