Ubisoft Courting PC Gamers

Ubisoft is actively seeking to improve its relationship with the PC gaming community, as seen in comments on MCV that acknowledge the damage the publisher's recent actions have caused in that area, in particular, their recently ended "always on" DRM policy. "Announcing all these partners for Uplay and a wider choice of PC games, it shows our commitment to PC, and we want to improve out [sic] relationship with the PC community," Ubisoft's worldwide Uplay director Stephanie Perotti told them. "We are always seeking to improve. We took a lot of that feedback on board. With every game on PC we are improving. Far Cry 3 and Assassinís Creed III on PC were very high quality."

Remember that Ubisoft once said this about PC gamers.

In fairness, he's right - both about rampant piracy and that PC users bitch a lot. However, that's at best a stupid comment for someone representing Ubisoft. Even if he's not releasing a PC version, other Ubisoft studios were. He blamed it on his poor grasp of English but somehow I doubt he thought "bitch" meant "engage in respect debate".

But remember, PC gamers bitch a lot because they do have valid reasons to bitch, with publishers treating us as second or third class citizens. When you're treated like shit you tend to bitch a lot.

So you agree with him?

No. Not in the way he said since he is blaming everyone for piracy, including the people who would buy the game.

And I also would like to point that piracy is rampant regardless of platform.
