So, after all that time and money and bad will among PC gamers, Ubisoft wound up right back where it started:

[h=1]Ubisoft Gives Up On Its Stupid PC DRM[/h]
For the last few years, Ubisoft's attempts at battling piracy have been something of a running punchline, seeming to achieve little but annoy the company's actual paying customers.

Looks like all the protests have finally sunk in, because the publisher has told Rock, Paper, Shotgun it'll be rolling back most of its most offensive methods.
Better late than never, I suppose.

People these days are very quick to take a negative stance toward something and slow to give it up. They will be feeling the effect of this for years to come.

Can't speak for anyone else, but if publishers create good games I am happy to pay for them. And I have not interest in bad games.
