people who might be casual pirates

This kind of thinking is largely a fallacy now though. Most piracy is casual in nature these days. We're not in the days of people burning disks for friends anymore, the public at large is a lot more tech savvy than given credit for and I doubt most people even use the dvd drives in their computers anymore.

A more simple line of thought is does the bad PR from DRM outweigh other considerations? Ubisoft obviously seems to think so but I doubt their reasoning is rooted in any logical rationale. There are more sane approaches to DRM that other companies employ successfully without impacting consumer experiences to this degree.

I disagree Verno, until an actual crack comes out its unbreakable. Thatís a win for Ubi. Try and word it any way you like, but there are no cracks for this game. So, Iím right in what I said. This also leads Ubi to belive their methods are working.

If you want to quibble about the wording then go right ahead but its not unbreakable, it's uncracked and we all know why. We've already wasted more words on HAWX 2 than it probably had in terms of buyers so frankly who gives a shit anyway. If a single unbreakable game existed would that suddenly proven the efficacy of DRM? No it wouldn't because then someone would have to explain its numerous failures too.
