From Dust DRM Also Always On?

The Steam Listing for From Dust has details on the DRM in recently delayed PC edition of the upcoming god-game. This suggests that like Driver: San Francisco, this will use Ubisoft's DRM scheme that requires a persistent internet connection while the game is being played, saying: "Ubisoft Online Service" (thanks Bumpy via DSOGaming). We reached out to THQ to confirm the details on this, but have yet to receive a response (perhaps there's a glitch with their internet connection).

Fuck ubisoft and fuck anyone supporting this drm. The sooner ubisoft leaves the pc market the better.
Why should Ubisoft leave the pc market? They still make good money with pc games, because there are enough people out there, who use cracks or just endure the DRM, because they are emotional dependent on games.

Bullshit. The vast majority of gamers wouldn't know DRM from their asses, and in this day and age when people are used to playing games on Facebook, MMOs, multiplayer Call of Duty, the average gamer doesn't realize what's going on behind the scenes.

They're already used to having a permanent internet connection and games not working when the internet goes down and it's nothing more than a temporary, minor frustration that a rational person is more than capable of handling in a rational way.
