    At least its not months on end like it has been with every other AC title. But what is it lately with companies holding back a highly anticipated title for a month lately?

    I reckon it's a cynical way to build pent-up demand and the anxiety that goes with it to cause an explosion of sales on release day.

    I know so many people with a console copy AND a PC copy... At worst, they buy the PC copy right before the next release in order to stay fresh into the series

    Couple of things:

    1 Why would they buy a copy for both platforms?

    2 I think the editing gremlins have hit your post and I didn't really understand the rest :toast:

    ROFL sorry I didn't read my post after writing it :p

    Because they like the slightly better graphics and the ability to pause the game and chat with whomever on msn or facebook and continue and download this or that and then listen to music etc etc. They also like playing it in their room vs the living room (as they leave their console there and don't bother moving it). Then they probably have other reasons I don't know of lol

    I meant that sometimes what they do is buy the console game when it comes out, and then later on, closer to the release of the next AC, they buy it on PC either at sales @ Best Buy or Amazon, or on sales @ Steam
    qubit says thanks.

    DRM was a ridiculous technology that only messed with legitimate buyers. If anything it made piracy worst.
    mediasorcerer and qubit say thanks.

    keep thinking that lol

    the majority of people don't bother with today's piracy, but every Dick, Bob, Joe or Jane could stick a CD in a CD burner and click copy
