From Dust DRM Also Always On?

The Steam Listing for From Dust has details on the DRM in recently delayed PC edition of the upcoming god-game. This suggests that like Driver: San Francisco, this will use Ubisoft's DRM scheme that requires a persistent internet connection while the game is being played, saying: "Ubisoft Online Service" (thanks Bumpy via DSOGaming). We reached out to THQ to confirm the details on this, but have yet to receive a response (perhaps there's a glitch with their internet connection).

They got AC2, they'll get HAWX2 as well. It's being crowd sourced right now much like AC2 was, it just takes time to find all of the entries, AC2 had thousands. To be honest I doubt HAWX2 is much of a priority to anyone so that's probably part of it.

Don't get mad at Prez for not caring, gaming is a hobby. Some people get more invested than others. I don't give a shit about sports for example, I follow football very casually just to make conversation and I'm sure that's sacrilege to some people.

I don't get mad specifically at him, but the fact that gamers only option to protest this is not buying it it does piss me off that gamers so quickly disregard their own consumer rights just to play the latest game. Despite being an hobby, gamers are still consumers and in the end some lines are not to be crossed, both by consumers and by publishers. For me this drm is clearly a line not to be crossed. And remember, by buying this game, regardless if you crack it afterwards, you are telling ubisoft you don't mind the drm, and that encourages them to come with worse drms, after all gamers didn't mind this drm, they won't mind a slightly worse one.

It's up to us and us alone to make certain this drm dies and we can only do that by not buying the damned thing.
