Ubisoft Tries to Foil Pirates, online authentication every time????
WTF Ubisoft, really. Can u be more lame, just as I was looking forward to the release of Assassins Creed 2 for PC u pull shit s**t. This is not even a multiplayer game, but yet we need internet connection and to be verified though your website before we play, wow. So I guess these corporations think they can out smart UberNerds and prevent them from figuring out a way around these types of things to deliver these games cracked and ready for play from such sites as, btjunkie or thepiratebay.
Good luck. I have no doubt that there will be a cracked version of Assassins Creed 2 on these sites on the date of release if not sooner. So are these measures really preventing ppl from pirating their software or enraging ppl that are legit customers and guiding them down the road to Piratesville? During Steams holiday sale where they were offering kickass games for 10 bucks and under, one wise nerd quoted, “Steam is fighting piracy with reasonable priced games”. How true. So if you own or wish to buy any of Ubisoft’s lineup of games, including: Assassin’s Creed series, Beyond Good and Evil, Brothers in Arms, Far Cry series, Might and Magic, Myst, Prince of Persia, and Tom Clancy’s series. If only these corporations would catch on and wise up, rather than pissing ppl off along the way to save some money, they are really hurting their own image and their bottom line in the end. Geez, it’s not like they netted 109 million last year with total revenue at over 1.4 billion.
