Ubisoft fails to learn from peers’ failures, Settlers VII and Assassin’s Creed II require constant internet connection to even run.

This whole massive fight against so called “piracy” that has been blamed for everything from the death of the music industry to the cause of world hunger is unfortunately, not going anywhere anytime soon. I can tell however, who will be going somewhere (as in out of business somewhere) very soon - Ubisoft. Let me clarify — Ubisoft will go out of business if they continue to release games with DRM like that of the cancer that’s found in recently released Settlers VII and Assassin’s Creed II.

Just like EA’s follies of the not too distant past, Ubisoft is requiring these two titles to maintain a constant internet connection in order to play the game — at all. If the game’s connection is interrupted even for a second, no matter where you’re at in the game, it’s lights off and game over. Best of all, your progress isn’t saved. Ya, it sucks.

You’d think these senseless idiots who run these companies would realize such restrictive DRM is the worst possible way to stop piracy when in fact, such measures will actually increase piracy. But that’s really what they want I guess…

    The solution is to have a more effective DRM system which actually works and doesn’t affect system performance or personal privacy.

    I’m sure the pirates would still find something to complain about it though.

      You either don’t ever use a computer or don’t grasp the gravity of the situation. DRM in any form is crap. One the transaction has been made, I can do whatever I want with my property. If I want a million personal backups — fine. You can’t place the same rules and restrictions that a physical good has and transfer them to a digital one. It doesn’t work that way.

      There hasn’t ever been a single form of DRM that’s reduced piracy or helped the consumer in the slightest.
