Ubisoft: DRM Will "Evolve"

Eurogamer has a response from Ubisoft to questions about future plans for their online DRM, which they call their "online services platform," indicating they hope to improve the scheme, but not eliminate it, in spite of users' worst fears coming true about its online requirement causing all sorts of problems in the short time since it was implemented. "Most forthcoming Ubisoft PC titles will use our online services platform," a Ubisoft spokesperson explained. "As with any online technology, we are constantly working to evolve and improve it."

It's sad because their dev teams are turning out games I'd like to play. However, yes, Ubi is rather dead to me.
Ditto. There is some great talent under the Ubisoft banner (and, presuming it's still being developed, missing "Beyond Good & Evil 2" will hurt :/ ), but this DRM is absolutely retarded, and I cannot support it.

And just because some people have problems does not mean everyone does.

Your argument goes both ways.
Excuse me while I pick myself up off the floor.

I cannot believe that you think that constitutes a successful (or coherent) retort.

No one has ever said that the system will fail for everyone. Jesus, even the idiots who green-lit this would have refrained from doing so if it wasn't going work for anyone. Of course it works for some people! I would expect that it works for the majority of people, the majority of the time. That doesn't mean it's not a completely insane mechanism to employ.

I'd say that not one of the whining many here have even tried a game with this DRM.
You're right. Those that said "as long as this DRM doesn't allow offline gaming, we're not spending our money on it" haven't spent their money on it. If they did, it wouldn't be much of a resistance.
Well put.
