Heh, that's a good one, and sadly it's quite true. Ah well, companies will learn in time, and if they don't, we'll be adding another to the growing list of bankruptcies.

I upgraded the home system b4 I found about the DRM thing..a new nVidia GTS 250/1gig,then got 4 gigs of DDR3...and now it sits..waiting...calling me at night..."Kirk,..Kirk..buy the game"...

So..after seeing the screen shots I must say its hard not to click on"buy it now".
Maybe I was wrong to jump so fast and say "no,not doing it"....I just don't know what to do.

Well UBI sure knows how to get the $$ just by applying the "Eye candy", the heck with how well it plays, as that's up to the modders.

Seriously, do you really expect SH5 to be a blockbuster.

They may have started it, but the industry didn't have to respond the way they did. At least there's still a few good DRM free games, though sadly they're on the decrease these days.

Piracy is being used as the excuse, but at the heart of it all is one thing, and that is control. With OSP, they control when, where and how you play the game you paid for. Dress it up however you like, dismiss it, but the fact of the matter is this, we are losing the freedoms we once had. It's only going to get worse, if companies like Ubi believe this form of DRM to be successful, we will see it in all future games.

Hell, I wouldn't mind so much, if they paid for my country's internet to be brought into the 21st century! As it is, it's so damned unreliable that a game with a permanent net requirement is a big risk. If they could guarantee my net would not fail, ever, then fine, but otherwise they can get stuffed.

I did not!.................Oh you mean the game pirates.

Well, I've been ( shall we say politely? ) accused of this already.

Half of whom will claim they're doing it for noble reasons.

Yeah, just like the supporters of DRM claim that their support is for a cause. Funny really.

No dead horses please. This is the anti-drm thread. We need to be nice here if we expect them to be nice in our threads.
