    Wow, pirates really are sticking it to Ubisoft lately.
    The hacking is over now, and Ubi.com is back to normal.
    At the very least, Ubisoft is compensating for these attacks by giving back to the customers.

    Well their latest DRM really does stick it to the consumer, especially if the game gets fully cracked.

    Idiots. Doing this will further wither the already dying amounts of game releases on the PC.

    Not really. I really don't pirate a PC game unless I am really on the fence about it or I can't get a demo.

    Things like these really put me off as a consumer though.

    DRM, if any, shouldn't inconvenience the consumer.

    DRM was just a terrible idea. Games have suffered lower scores because of it and it's already riddled with problems. Once it gets cracked, you'll basically just have a shitty system that does nothing. Not even repel pirates. There's much better ways to stop piracy.

    Congrats to Skidrow. Always nice to give Ubisoft a slap in the ballsack.

    The sooner Ubisoft realises this was a mistake the better. There was two games I was intending to buy. Assassins Creed 2, and the new Settlers game coming out this month. Both have this crappy DRM, so Ubisoft won't be getting my money now. [​IMG]

    Get off your high horse.

    That doesn't prove anything. You can change the look of Firefox, y'know.
