A PC Version AND a Demo? What is it, Christmas?
A demo, you have to pay for. Remember EAs new business plan?

Hmmm, a new video game crash, this time only hurting the majors, because they grew too big and got lazy and dumb? Sounds familiar. Might happen. Sooner as anyone could imagine ...

Is the opportunity cost of lost sales worth the prevention of piracy?
There is a question to be answered before that. In fact two questions. Does casual, non-profit software piracy hurt sales? If yes, how much? Enough to use some draconian DRM? There is no sign, since more than twenty years, that the answer to question one and two is yes. In fact, according to new studies (for example, a canadian study on music consumers), typical casual piracy seems to hurt sales not all, even boost them a little bit.

Lololololol!!! Hahahah, yeah Im sure they are rudimentary compared to being hit by a moving vehicle too. Or maybe we should compare the problem of Ubi's DRM with World Hunger. I mean we have all accepted that there is no way in hell that we can solve World Hunger, so I guess everyone in the world should accept that DRM is here to stay. SO SAY WE ALL!!!!
So true, so true.

But it's not about a constant online connection. This is NOT the point. It's about the ability of the vendor to shut down old games, to force players to buy new games. It's about the coming dark information age, when there is only content in circulation the industry wants to circulate. After the content has done its purpose, making enough profit, it's authentification servers are switched off and the content becomes useless, unreadable, vanishes into thin air.

Just patch out the dumb DRM for Single PLayer and I may consider a purchase to see how C&C ends
They cannot do this. Because it's integral part of the SP campaign, where you have to gain enough experience to unlock specific units, without them you are not able to advance. Experience, you gain AFAIK only in playing some online matches or you have to group with another player to help you with this specific mission.

As i recall several reviews, there is no more "traditional" SP campaign. You are forced to play online, to take part in online matches.

The sad thing is that they will blame this whole mess on the community and probably exit PC gaming altogether.
They don't. Because there is way too much money to be made with pc games. This DRM is just for their investors to show them, that Ubisoft is willing to protect its assets. Because Ubisofts view investors are more important than some angry costumers or a tiny boycott behaviour. And Ubisoft has removed copy protection from several older games lately, including Settler 6. So ... just wait, have patience, my young jedi

Don't bite the hand that feeds you ...
So true. It's basic economics. Consumers purchase power is limited and nothing the industry does, will change this. But if they really want to stop the sales of "used" games, i encourage them to do so. The faster the majors vanish from the face of the earth, the better for all.

Wish there was a demo.
There will be a demo some time after the release. Devs say, they just havent enough time before that.

I tried the usual P2P demo a few minutes and ... while it DOES look very pretty, i was just watching one heavily scripted event after another, had two QTEs (quick time events) and can't save freely, which makes this game the usual console shooter, including the typical "We're not providing a health bar. Instead we just color the screen red until you are dead, but it's up to you to guess HOW MUCH you are hurt and when to use a medkit."

Meh ... I'll pass, but you can give it a shot. Maybe you'll like that kind of shooter. And no, this is NOT Stalker. This is just another console shooter.

I'm not so sure they actually LEARNED anything after all...
As long, as these units provide just an optional layer of strategy (should i use my basic units or should i spare the ressources for this elite unit?), they have learned to avoid this trap.

December 2009:
Firefox usage (FF3 only) in Germany: 44,2%, still going up
IE usage in germany (all version combined): 44,8%, still going down

Similar numbers in other european countries. And no, we europeans are NOT smarter than the rest of the world. We just hate Microsoft more

PS, you're an asshole for suggesting to just pirate something that the devs have created to give you incentive not to pirate. You can't argue the point economically, you're just an asshole.
Would you please stop looking at the movie inside your head? And start reading, what i wrote?
And second, learn to recognize irony. Helps a lot ...

What is so special about that? I don't see it

I don't know, way back, years ago, it was A LOT easier to get excited from looking at screenshots from new games and engines. Now i have to refer to picture descriptions to know, that this screenshot is DX9, or 10 or 11. Or i have to study computer science, to appreciate the work of the engine coders.

Graphic improvements are "done". There is nearly nothing left to improve. And i dont play games to look at "photo realism". For that i leave the house and walk the woods
