Ubisoft Uplay Details

Ubisoft announces details on Splinter Cell Conviction support for Uplay, their "online destination available via an in-game interface. The service consists of Uplay Win, Uplay Help, Uplay Share and Uplay Shop, and the Uplay beta launched last year with Uplay Win for Assassin’s Creed 2." Here's a trailer showing how to earn Uplay rewards on a PC or Xbox 360, and here's word:

Uplay Win enables players to collect units based on their actions in the games and exchange them for rewards such as exclusive in-game content or digital items. Uplay Win Units can also be gathered across a variety of Ubisoft titles which are currently available for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360 and PC.

In Splinter Cell Conviction, only available on Xbox 360 and Windows PC, exclusive in-game content such as a SCAR-H assault rifle and access to the Infiltration Game Mode are among the rewards offered through Uplay Win. For those who don't want to redeem their units right away, they can save them to use on many more upcoming Ubisoft titles.

The DRM isn't going anywhere. They're even leveraging off it to give a reason to be online, adding enticements to play through the games and get "free stuff" if you complete achievements.

All your moaning has achieved nothing except make you look like a bunch of whiny bitches. Just build a bridge and GET OVER IT ALREADY.

I disagree strongly. It took years, but the rootkits that used to represent the popular form of DRM have fallen out of favor specifically because of consumer complaints and how it eventually cut into sales.
The difference is that Rootkits were causing damage, either physical (such as Starforce) or opening security holes in the operating systems (such as the one used by Sony). Ubisoft's DRM does not cause damage (at least that we know of). If you can prove it does cause damage, I'll drop it like a tonne of bricks, like I did with Starforce.

Until then "Awww ... but I don't like it" is all you've got. Sure, that's your choice and you can own that. For me, it's no different than the MMO's I play so often so it's no big impost on me. And I don't believe your "fight", "resistance" or what ever you want to call it ... that's a load of bullshit in my opinion. Anything that combats or slows down the rampant piracy that is killing the PC gaming industry is a good thing, as long as it's not harmful or obtrusive.
