    It's a shame three ways round

    1.) It hurts cos i want it it. But not at the cost of having this pants DRM.
    2.) Ubi arent getting as much money (not a problem to me if they persist with this DRM rubbish, but for them it is!)
    3.) Them Eye-Patched, Peg-Legged, Parrot-Befriending, Stipey-Shirt-Wearing, Jolley-Roger-Hoisting Cabin-Boy-Rogering (Deep Breath) Pirates are having a GIRAFFE!!!!!!

    Now wheres my brown paper bag?????

    I wonder if

    lost sales due to DRM + pr/tech support nigtmare due to DRM + cost of developing DRM > lost revenue due to piracy

    I suspect it will be very close.

    Its a stealth way to kill PC gaming.

    I'm not joking, I now will not go near a PC version of a Ubi game and prefer to get the 360 version so I don't have to put up with this rubbish.

    Also point out that the 360 version costs more. so if they can push people onto the console versions they make more money.

    I urge you to boycott all their games, until they drop this DRM.

    personally, i'd be incredibly surprised if it had any effect on piracy bar increasing it.

    Sorry, you had some packet loss at some point in the past, due to that your product key does not cover brown paper bags.

    UBISOFT... place space between U and B, and replace SOFT with ITCH. And that goes for anyone who comes up with an always online protection mode.
