On Ubisoft DRM

There's a follow-up to our question about whether From Dust will use Ubisoft's DRM that requires a constant internet connection on VG247, where a Ubi rep has told them: "From Dust will not require a permanent online connection to play in single-player mode." In contrast, there's also a post on PC Gamer where a Ubisoft representative deemed the always on DRM a "success," saying they've seen "a clear reduction in piracy of our titles which required a persistent online connection, and from that point of view the requirement is a success."

Funny how the Ubishit rep doesnít mention anything about the reduction in sales too.

And we all know there has been. They are just trying to cover it up and justify their DRM. Screw Ubi and their DRM. I havenít bought any of their titles since they started this bullshit, and Iíll continue to do so.
