    Aren't you just so glad you can't play the game you paid for? - while others who pirated it and paid nothing are playing it whenever they like.

    Ubisoft are the idiots who actually thought this moronic DRM strategy would work.

    Ever since games have been sold for the PC, people have pirated them. It's nothing new

    The problem is that companies like Ubisoft seem to fail to realise that stopping them is not possible, they should just give up.

    If I was Ubisoft I would rather gain more sales by not pissing off my customers than lose sales by attempting (and failing) to stop pirates, and wasting money in the process.

    After my first (and last) Steam game (Half-Life 2) Valve has lost me as a customer permanently. I will never buy anything that requires Steam ever again. It feels as if I am paying so they can annoy the hell out of me, rather than sell me a decent game.

    I honestly don't know why they bother with copy protection at all. In fact the harder the copy protection, the more likely someone is going to want to break it for the challenge.

    If all game publishers abandoned all copy protection schemes, the cracker groups would have nothing to do
