Dishonored 2 and Watch Dogs 2 were two titles I was really looking forward to, and that I'll boycott - apparently this malware Denuvo is everywhere those days!

It's really sad. And apparently it'll be in all Ubi titles (and I guess Bethesda's too, they used to be a great company).

It certainly doesn't give a very good impression from a company when their support and their PR give contradictory information about the end of a product. Time will tell I suppose.

The demand has allegedly soared these last weeks due to the success of pCars, that could explain the shortage. On the other end, those are old products, even Logitech has ended the G27 and announced the G290.

I call BULLSHIT!

Amazon Pricing:
Thrustmaster T500RS = $584
Thrustmaster TX + T3PA-PRO = $482
Thrustmaster T300RS + T3PA-PRO = $587

Not only is the T500RS listed as the 26th of 26 wheel products on Thrustmaster website's Wheel product page, but it does not support either PS4 or XB1. Even if a new buyer was going to exclusively use a wheel for the PC, it's still a smarter choice to go with the TX or T300RS because of resell value.

Then consider that a new buyer can buy a TX (plus the upgraded pedals) for $100 LESS THAN the cost of the +4 year old T500RS (without a brushless motor) or support their latest gear shifter.

Clearly then, it's a product that must be discontinued or replaced by an updated PC-only wheel. My guess is the rumor is right, but Thurstmaster still has a lot of T500RS in the distribution channel and are hoping to sucker in some poor schmucks who are dishing out almost $600 and expecting the best.

At least sell the soon-to-be-discontinued T500RS for a discount, Thrustmaster, you jerks.

Yes, it's quite pricey and about on par with Fanatec (at least here in Europe), do the wheel and pedals really justify such a high price? Not that I'd dare buy a Fanatec after seeing disturbing reports on the overall quality and noise (now, maybe there are as many for the other brands too).

Watch Dogs was a fucking mess. The micro-stutter issues(...)

It was perfectly fine on a GTX 780/i7. Here anyway.

Well, except all the problems with Uplay of course (needed to update but wouldn't be able to, impossible to log in, ... had to wait for hours before moving past the terrible Uplay experience).

Which makes me wonder what little difference may get those game to work or stutter as hell. If you look at the users' opinion on Steam, people with apparently the same hardware are either over the moon or completely frustrated. Though they rarely detail their hardware / software configuration.

Also, Black Flag was on the same engine, though it was probably easier on the textures (but less on poly count?). We didn't see so many bad reports for this version, even on Metacritic.

It's been released for a few days now. Review are quite bad, apparently the controls are terrible (especially edge detection), so is the AI.

Shame, second disappointment after Thief. We really ought not to get high expectations from those marketing racket.

Here's another record from Ubisoft, the cleverness of their support. This is the way to solve all the login connection problem so many suffered recently:

"To resolve you issue could you please uninstall the Uplay launcher from your PC.

Could you please go to http://uplay.ubi.com/en-GB and click on the link to download and then reinstall the launcher.

Once the Uplay client is reinstalled please do the following:-

Go to the following location - C:\Program Files (x86)\Ubisoft\Ubisoft Game Launcher

- Right click Uplay.exe

- Select properties

- Switch to the compatibility tab and tick run this program as an administrator.

- Click Apply and then OK.

Once you have done this please try to run the game again."

-- just to make sure, yes, it was ironic

Since they seem to like that, don't hesitate to hammer their support too. It's time they finally decided to give up about this silly uplay.

Considering the failure Dark Souls 2 proved to be on PC, that 1st position is a real wonder. Apparently this "game" had such a good publicity that it passed no matter how crippled - and this isn't the first time!

Not to mention the total lack of support, I wish I could just get a refund and forget about this mistake.

Had they released that for PC first, they would never have sold so many licences.

Processor: Eight core - Intel Core i7-3770 @3.5 GHz or AMD FX-8350 X8 @ 4 GHz

That's a 4-core processor, not an 8-core (http://ark.intel.com/products/65719/).

More and more disappointing, not only did they fail to fulfil their initial promise of delivering a game (it was but a demo), not only did they only delivered a third of the contents on the 2nd release date, but now they reschedule what is only the second part.

Next time I'll just wait until it's actually out there too, I'm a customer and not an investor :p

It's "better than *its* counterparts", no verb in there. Common mistake, but a mistake nonetheless.

3D is just a distraction, also I'd rather they kept good quality contents and didn't sacrifice part of the budget for this silliness.

Hopefully the film industry will realise that eventually.

A bit in advance for April fool's day, but an interesting hoax nevertheless

No, if it's actually coming from Ubisoft and not a hoax (which I'm really not convinced), it would even be smart from them. This will obviously make quite a buzz - already is -, then all they'd have to do is publish an official statement that, "in order to respect their fans, they finally decided to include PC mouse and keyboard support in their last game". Free advertising, and what a way to restore a bit of their fame after the DRM mess they got into.

At any rate, I don't believe one moment that if they went into the trouble of publishing a PC version of the game, they wouldn't also add the code (that they already have, remember the other titles of the franchise?) to offer keyboard and mouse support. Without that, it wouldn't even be interesting to try and sell a crippled game in the PC market.
