They want to be WoW? Am I reading this wrong?
Both Euro-dousche and Amero-dousche companies (Ubisoft and EA) have finally recognized that DRM is a bad thing for the people who are willing to fork over money. Rather than actually foregoing DRM, and making games that people will purchase (either more game ala Skyrim, or cheaper games like almost every Indie release), they put the focus on subscription based services. What kind of subscription based services would anyone buy from them, given the BS associated with how much DRM is already present in their games?
If Ubisoft can release a service where I get access to 100% of their titles with DRM similar to Steam, and I pay $20 per month, then maybe I'll care. Ubisoft doesn't have the balls, and they lack anything resembling the whit. Wake me when this article becomes anything more than PR pandering to consumers that are butt-hurt because of the DRM Ubisoft forces onto them.
You haven't seen anything until you've seen this.
Wow! I didn't know the blue screen of death could get a blue screen of death.
