39. Re: From Dust DRM Also Always On? Jul 28, 2011, 14:57 Prez
 
Ubisoft doesn't care about who voices their concerns and objections to the drm, their only concern is hard sales numbers, pretty much like any other corporation. Since nothing exists to really prevent them from going to more extremes in the drm, their sales numbers is enough to justify making a new drm, hypothetically speaking of course, that would require to take a DNA sample from you each minute to confirm you're playing the game. This may not be legal but most of any eula is also on shaky legal ground in the eu and the us, so unless someone complained they would probably get away with it, like they do with this drm and eulas. Would you buy a game then?

With a warez copy in the wild, I'd have to put up with exactly none of that, just as I have put up with exactly none of Ubisoft's current idiotic DRM. And if I play it, I buy it. The developers shouldn't work for free. In the event there is no cracked version for whatever reason, I just hold off until there is. Simple.

I'm not naive enough to think my one purchase (or lack thereof) is going to even register in Ubisoft's awareness much less send them a message of some sort.

And since I belong to some consumer organizations you can bet this is something that makes me emotionally involved.

Fair enough, but that does not mandate that I be as well. I have a hell of a lot more critical issues in my life to get emotional about.
