Hot on the heels of our story Are The Days Of DRM Numbered? news reaches us that for its upcoming title, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, Ubisoft is abandoning its despised always-on internet DRM, which continues to cause much controversy. This type of DRM requires the hapless gamer to have a persistent internet connection, with authentication data constantly flowing between their computer and Ubisoft's servers. The instant that connection is interrupted, the game stops dead in its tracks with a warning message to restore the connection. What if someone experiences an extended ISP outage? What if they want to play while away on holiday, where there's no internet connection, or it's very limited and expensive? What if the authentication servers fall over as they have done so in the past? There are in fact, too many serious negatives to list here. This is a dreadful and shameful way for Ubisoft to treat its customers who are being handled like criminals with curfew electronic ankle bracelets. This requirement eats into a gamer's monthly bandwidth allowance just for the benefit of Ubisoft. No wonder it's despised and hated so much.

Well now I'll entertain buying their games again. I'll have to see what they're going to use for DRM.

I'm glad my lack of dollars flowing their way helped them wake up.

This is why I get mildly irritated by members who tell me to ignore DRM, shut up and simply play the game, or words to that effect, in various threads relating to DRM. Collectively, we simply do not have to put up with this crap. When companies attempt to force this crap down our throats, if we collectively refuse to accept, they are embarrassingly forced to admit the error of their ways and rectify. It is sad that no amount of petitioning or complaints cause them to change their practices: only dwindling sales drive them to attempt to return to affording the illusion of actually listening to their paying customers, rather than attempting to abuse them at every turn.

In all likelihood, it will only be a matter of months before they attempt to reinstate this DRM or a system that causes equal discontent amongst their customers, so whilst I commend this move, they will get no thanks from me for removing a system that never should have been in place.

Too bad there's no chance Acticrap will listen to this, and change that for D3... course, for me, it wouldn't matter. Lack of LAN play breaks that one for me as well, and there's no way they're going to fix that. So, I'll wait. SOMEone will "fix" it for me ;)

Such a good post, were do I start? :) Ultimately, it's the fragmented nature of consumers that lets them get away with this crap. Most companies, especially the big ones, really are that ruthless in their pursuit of money and would do anything to get it.

Most people who don't care about DRMs make a huge exception for this one. I myself don't mind DRMs that aren't too restrictive. To me, I have not seen any DRM pass my limit of DRMs being too restrictive except the Always-on DRM

They receive a thank you from me, because they just proved that they DO listen a little bit and they DO care about their customers. I also imagine this was a hard achievement for some in the company, as investors etc are probably not that happy about this decision

I also dislike data-mining to subsequently sell my details to third parties (Origin). If they are making more profit, they could at least reduce the price of their games. ;) Nor do I like providing kernel-level access (Securom), or having installations limited (Securom, Tages, et al.) when it is clear that none of these methods serve to prevent piracy. Indeed, they are so ineffectual that it is clear that this is not their intent and I certainly do not like being lied to or treated like an idiot. They are all simply a method of excercising more control over the paying customer, frequently cause conflicts with other aspects of the system and, at the very least, unnecessarily eat up system resources.

DRM should be reduced to a bare minimum and the need for some form of anti-piracy measures should not afford companies licence to treat their customers any way they please. In this particular case, given the average Internet speeds in Spain and many other parts, it was simply a stupid idea from the outset.

They do not listen to customers, they simply have not reached expected sales levels and somebody has finally had the insight to ask why. In the end, lost revenue is all they listen to, you are naive to think otherwise.

Theses are nice arguments, and I agree with some of them. But I still think that the solution is somewhere in the middle. Reducing DRMs is fine if they find another way to slow piracy (note I did not say stop). Admittedly, I do not know what Securom or Origin do, but installations limits should be fine if there is a way to deactivate them from previous PCs

the copy protection software is the same (orbit), they just disabled the always-on requirement.
i think the first game to be released without it, will be anno 2070 (dawn of discovery?), which is about to be released in a week...not sure if homm6 still has it...

no need for any bets, it's been dropped...for now anyways...
