So does this cover previously bought games that were crippled with Uplay ? or is it only for new releases ?
looks like i may preorder Assassin's Creed 3 and Watchdogs after all.
Probably not. They shot themselves so many times in the RPS interview that I have no idea if they're being sincere or if it's a marketing ploy. I'll want to see more action before I can trust them again.
Oh wait its September.
Cool, this is great news.
I'm still boycotting any Ubi' games until it's confirmed they don't use any of the old DRM, online activation and a serial number is ok I guess but nothing more.
If this turns out to be 100% true, then Ubisoft can have my custom again. I won't hold a grudge, I don't think I've missed anything too fantastic anyway - don't overly love the AC/Anno style games personally.
Watchdogs, on the other hand, makes me salivate every time I think about it, although it might be a huge disappointment. Like Prototype was. I remember being moist with anticipation when I saw the preview screenshots, and then the finished product was a stinking mess (IMHO).
Same. If they have changed their ways then hey they can have my custom again. I'm just glad they didn't put it on Rayman as I LOVED that game and wouldn't have played it if it had that BS.
I can confirm. I pulled out my internet, booted into windows and you can start up uplay to play some games (only tested AC:B & AC:R) and it'll notify you about the part you cannot access when offline (multiplayer, obviously), but doesn't stop you from playing singleplayer or saving or other such things. Better than Steam, which refuses to start up in offline mode .
Could anyone test Splinter Cell conviction? I fancy trying that game (when's its a fiver or something) but held off due to the DRM.
I would love to be a fly in the room when they told the execs that they lost sales due to the DRM and that pirares have less problems playing the game than paying customers.
This is exactly how I feel. At least now if they do come out with anything good I will be much more inclined to make a purchase.
Hmm looks like it could be good. I haven't been paying much attention to it recently, probably because I knew it was Ubisoft and would have DRM...
I'm with you on that one, though one thing Ubi does well is the generally high quiality of thier games...... after a few patches
this company has got ulterior motives im sure. first the drm was a success yet the last statement was that pc titles are pirated by 95%, so what is it?
all i see is a big pile of meat (sirloin medium rare with a draught of castle larger beer) and when u take it a big box traps u. now u live the rest of ur life in an expensive bird cage.
Screen shot or it didn't happen.
I'd like to think that this post made sense, but I just can't seem to
was channeling michael from "the office US" with his weird ways of explaining but u know what he means
im saying its a trap. have u never put down bird seed under a box and when the bird comes pull the string and down goes the box to trap it? i used bird cage cos this children tactic was mostly used on birds, well in my area.
Hmmm I am suspicious of their motives, I suspect there is something else going on here.
