Ubisoft DRM Titles Confirmed

Ubisoft confirms their controversial new DRM scheme that requires a constant online connection will be used in Splinter Cell: Conviction, Silent Hunter 5: Battle of the Atlantic, Assassin's Creed 2, Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, and the new Ghost Recon game, reports Softpedia by way of PC Gamer magazine. They offer a quote from a Ubisoft spokesperson: "It's hard for us to say, yes, from now until the day that we all die all of our games are going to include this but most will." Thanks Shacknews.

Normally I wouldn't object to online requirements but my internet connection has been unstable recently and I'll be damned if I'm buying a game that will effectively be unplayable. I have no problem with DRM in general but draw the line when it becomes too intrusive. Activations limits were a tough swallow but unless we see some exceptional post-release support I'll be passing. And everyone knows this will do fuck all to prevent pirated copies appearing.
