Ubisoft has recently announced that they have abandoned their DRM policies for pc games. Gamers will no longer need a constant internet connection to play singleplayer portions of their titles. All that is required on first install is a one-time acitivation which will allow you to re-download and install the title on as many machines as you want. Implementations of this have started as early as June of last year. Earlier this morning an interview with Stephanie Perotti, Ubisoft's worldwide director for online games, and Michael Burk, corporate communications manager, was published on Rock, Paper, Shotgun.
As awesome of news as this is, it still doesn't make me like Ubisoft. Don't get me wrong here, it is a great victory that pc gamers were able to get Ubisoft to stop being dumb and listen. Especially after finding out that pc sales only made up 7% of revenue in the last fiscal year. My loathing goes far deeper than just idiotic DRM. But that is a conversation for another time and another place. Also, don't foget to read the interview here.
How do you feel about Ubisoft's decision? Good, bad? Will this improve their reputation in the pc gaming world? Drop off your thoughts in the comments below.
