Ubisoft DRM Cracked?

Ubisoft's "always on" DRM has been defeated, according to a report on CNET, where they say a playable cracked version of Assassin's Creed II is now in the wild. All new Ubisoft PC games, including AC2, include internet-based validation that has caused problems playing games, but has been described by the publisher as "vital" to its business. It seems a little unusual for a mainstream site like CNET to post updates on pirated software, though Ubisoft's public denial of the previous report that their DRM was cracked has arguably set a precedent for this as a news topic. Thanks Joao.

Haha! I love it. It's been proven that Skidrow merely STOLE the existing server emulator and the values database (an old version no less), changed a couple of things to call it "their crack," then tried to HIDE it by compressing and xoring their work to try to make it harder for others to discover their deception. That's as deceitful as Ubisoft themselves.

In short, it's true: Assassin's Creed 2 remains UNCRACKED. BUT, it doesn't need to be cracked, as the server emulator reportedly works perfectly. So, hey, good job Ubi for creating a DRM that requires information from the server, but you were short-sighted and underestimating the will of the hacking community. Good luck next time. It's amazing what people can accomplish when they put their minds to it.

This DRM would likely have been more effective had it not required an always-on internet connection. That pissed a lot of people off. If you're going to require that sort of thing, at least let it be a multiplayer game.
