Piracy/DRM concerns mean PC getting F2P instead ? in GR:FS (PC) - General Discussion Posted November 28, 2011 · Edited November 28, 2011 by spm1138 Ubisoft are ######ing imbeciles. Their ownbrand DRM sucks. Really. It huffs ######. I've had games NOT WORKING OUT OF THE SHRINKWRAP because the key is already in use. I've then had their tech support fail to acknowledge that this is even possible. They should just go with Steamworks. It's tried, it's tested. http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2011-11-28-valve-piracy-a-non-issue-for-steam Ubisoft are presently too weak a publisher for drawing me into an "ecosystem" to be in any way a worthwhile thing. They're also not understanding that to make DRM effective you need to have a compelling MP game. The SP game, people can and will get round the DRM on. Especially if it's a five hour thing with no replay. It's MP where you can most effectively police people playing and MP that keeps people coming back. Make the MP a genuinely competitive, differentiated experience and require a Steam account to play and the problem will solve itself. The last GR game had pretty weak online play. I tried it twice and then gave up. It's ###### anyway. They just don't think the PC is a worthwhile market to port their games to. edit I've noticed that this and other forums that discuss GRFS for PC, that the biggest fans (us) are alwasy very critical of the development of these games and come across as being very hostile. Perhaps if we had more facts and presented our case in a more positive fashion to the folks that mattered at UBI, we could potentially get a more positive response in return. No.
