Normally I try not to hop on the piracy debate, but this singular statement that equates THIEVING to SOFTWARE PIRACY is simply ignorant on so many levels.
Is photocopying a book stealing? Im not defending piracy here, I just think that morally it cant be placed on the same level as thieving.

Read the Kotaku preview and then reconsider:
At the very least, Rage is cutting edge technology. Perhaps you may not be interested in the game itself, but what modders and others do with it should be pretty astounding.

Find the total revenue per quarter, it's often right at the start of the doc. Then apply the market share of the pc to the total revenue and you have the total pc sales revenue per quarter.

A quick look at their fiscal reports shows that since adopting the drm their pc market share and sales revenue has been constantly down. This should answer the the pressing question, did the drm bring them more sales. Answer, a definitive no.

When there isn't a viable alternative to avoid the DRM, I don't buy or play. Simple. Whether or not this sends the right or wrong message to Ubisoft is for other forumites to analyze and debate. I don't really care. All I care about is playing the game I want to play hassle-free and rewarding the hard work of the developers. That's it. Seriously, it's not like Ubisoft or any other publisher care what I do.

You're missing the point... we don't really give a shit because the DRM is irrelevant.

Ditto - I am not interested in sending messages to publishers; I'm interested in playing hassle-free games. I'm an unapologetic pay-and-pirate gamer when it comes to asinine DRM.
All in all, I want to see one of two things happen: either Ubisoft wises up and ditches this stupidity once and for all or just die outright as punishment for their idiocy.
