I think a good chunk of the extra development time has gone into burying UBI's awful DRM even deeper into the game after the one in AC2 was broken so easily. They did say they were going to do this after it was bypassed. Even though it was very restrictive DRM it was very lame from a technical point of view and made UBI look ridiculous.

The thing that made me boycott UBI games wasn't just the restrictive DRM it was the fact they were effectively punishing customers who buy their PC games in the name of anti-piracy. Piracy is rampant on the xbox and now the ps3 has been rooted it is going to start there too. Do console owners have to put up with a constant internet connection requirement on those consoles, of course not. This is why 1 week after launching AC2 on the PC it had over 60 one star reviews on Amazon and they couldn't shift copies for £15!!!

I cancelled my pre-order of AC2 and also Silent Hunter when I found out about this new DRM (borrowed a PS3 and played for free just to spite them). The 5th SH game is the only one I have not played yet and I refuse to buy any more UBI games unless their DRM at least has an offline mode like Steam.


They some how remove the internet always on thing. I have the new Splinter Cell that I bought it on Steam sale and I also have AC2 that I bought in for 1 dollar due to a problem on Ubisoft site.
Never played them though.

The only way for DRM to work is that a company finds a way to make their games difficult to pirate but not to limit the users they bought the game. This was the case with Bioshock. Was unbreakable for the first 2 weeks that was released and people that were reading good reviews couldn't wait for a crack and went and bought it.
