Bumpy, Dots... You must be the most passive aggressive people I have ever seen.
I really do not see how UBI's DRM can not anger any long time devoted PC gamer in any fashion.
I don't see the passive aggression here...
I'm a long time PC gamer, I've owned a total of three consoles previously, and my latest purchase, my 360, has been sitting there collecting dust for over a year, I'm thinking of selling it, in fact.
But the impact of the DRM on my personal experience is going to be most likely absolutely minimal. I play World of Warcraft from time to time, I'm not really a hardcore MMO player, but I still play it, and if you think about it, it uses the same "copy protection" as what Ubisoft proposed. I know it's inevitable for MMOs for course being that one genre, but the end experience is the same even if they apply it to a singleplayer game.
I'm also used to buying all my games through Steam. So basically, for me, if I'll, say, decide to play Assassin's Creed 2 or the new Splinter Cell or Settlers 7 or whatever, it'll be, in all likelihood, the same experience as playing any other game, press the shortcut, and play.
I can see how it can inconvenience some but raging against that on principle as opposed to actually being on a shaky connection is, IMO, stupid. Like, I don't have any reason to not buy a game like that if I want to play it, since it's going to be the exact same experience for me as playing any other game.
However, paying $60 for Ubi's games, now that's something that annoys me, I don't quite see why would they even think of doing it. Again, it's not something that will stop me from buying a game I really want to play but as for the rest it just might put them into the "waiting on Steam sale category".
Sorry if I came off as somehow hostile to you but that's what I personally believe.
