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."

Your comment was about how PC gamers bitch, so you were agreeing with him on that point. You are claiming to disagree now, but you're switched to arguing about piracy, not bitching.

How much piracy is there on the Xbox and PS3 compared to the PC? I don't think he's blaming every PC user who wanted a port, he was just stating that many who want a port wouldn't pay for it. He's right.

I don't disagree with PC gamers bitching, because they are given more than enough reason to bitch of all gamers, and often said bitching usually ends up being about valid points. I disagree with his attitude, and share your opinion that his words were badly chosen.

As for piracy on consoles, games leak for consoles weeks, even months, ahead of release while on the PC it's becoming more usual for games to be cracked a day or two after release. But saying that an unreleased game would be massively pirated, as he and you are implying, is wrong, because you really have no idea of how much pirated copies will be made and how many people will buy after trying the pirated copy. Both him and you seem to fall on the fallacy of a pirated copy is a lost sale.

Also, piracy is inevitable. Bitching about it, as he was doing, is pointless. It will happen, regardless of platform. Maybe if he and publishers adopted the tactics of Notch of turning pirates to customers piracy would cease to be such a problem.
