Ubisoft considers its DRM “a success”

Despite its mass unpopularity, Ubisoft are considering its DRM measures “a success.”

Ubisoft have claimed that there system that requires users to be always connected to the internet in order to play games (even single player ones) has worked to cut down piracy.

An Ubisoft representative said that the developer has seen “A clear reduction in piracy of our titles which required a persistent online connection, and from that point of view the requirement is a success”.

It may be a success for them, but it certainly seems to be pissing off the PC gaming community.

Thanks to PC Gamer for the info.

  • Ubisoft, if it weren’t for EA I’d have to say they’re the most delusional game company. I guess they missed the part where more people pirated AC2 then would have cause of the horrid DRM, People who bought the game would rather pirate it then deal with the DRM.

    I guess they also forgot in January of THIS YEAR they quietly patched select PC games (including AC2) to disable this “hugely successful” DRM or even how when their servers are down you can’t play the game cause this DRM is so successful. The only thing that makes EA more delusional then Ubi is that EA keeps on spewing out bullshit they’ve become a joke, Ubi barely makes asses out of themselves.
