Ubisoft Financials

Ubisoft announces the release of financial results (Adobe Acrobat format) for their fiscal year 2013, saying their numbers for the year are "at the upper end of the recently-raised target ranges." They report annual sales are up 18% to €1,256 million and non-IFRS operating income is up 79% to €100 million. The results include perspective from Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot:

"In 2012-13 our financial performance outstripped the targets that we had announced a year ago, notably with non-IFRS operating income up 79% and higher-than-expected cash generation. The expertise and talent of our teams enabled Ubisoft to manage the year’s difficult market conditions and the drop in the casual segment remarkably well. In addition, the success of Far Cry 3 confirmed our strong comeback in the major segment of shooter games.” Guillemot continued "We began fiscal 2012-13 with two major franchises: Assassin’s Creed and Just Dance. Twelve months later, we have substantially extended our reach by establishing Far Cry as another major franchise, building upon the great potential for our newest brand, Watch Dogs, and making our online/digital segment an increasingly significant part of our business. The steady rise in our operating and financial performance during the last three years is the direct result of the longterm investments we have made, with the continued development of our creative capacity and the bolstering of our expertise in online activities.”

Security isn't a black and white thing. There are varying degrees of security and most people are willing to sacrifice some degree of freedom to attain it. This doesn't make them unreasonable. It makes them practical. It's why you choose to live in a society bound by laws and regulations. If you want complete freedom, you need to become a hermit and live in the woods, desert or some other remote location far away from civilization. I'm pretty sure you aren't a hermit living in the woods or desert so really, you're just being a hypocrite.
I'm talking about bought security mainly. Let's try to seperate the safety in numbers argument from the company or politician trying to sell you a false message of security. They sell you peace of mind and nothing all. Secuirty is a band aid to a much larger issue of evil human behaviour. Obviously humans need to stick together and that's not what I am talking about. Rules are important but security, the peace of mind bullshit people sell you, is not needed. There is only so far you can go where the balance of ACTUAL real safety is not increased vs the restriction of freedom. It's a balancing act, you should never go too far and choose a little bit more security over freedom.

Such as, not being able to access some of your games without an internet connection and some companies stupid software that is just designed to sell you more shit.

Also, how am I ignoring you? I've addressed every one of your points and refuted them with undeniable facts. That's why your argument is poor. If you can present an argument I can't soundly refute, then you'll have a good argument. Your personal tastes are all well and good but they don't support the arguments you're making. You may not like DRM or Steam but that doesn't change the fact that Steam has had a beneficial impact on PC gaming and that most PC gamers like it.
No. You just ignored me completely with Sleeping Dogs, that's a real issue and real concern for Steam. Forcing people to download and update or not play their game? That is extremely restrictive.

We don't live in a world with unlimited bandwidth, unlimited disk space yet and it's probably a way off still.
