You really couldn't make it up- people who've bought the game can't play it, people who've pirated it can. Sheer idiocy from Ubisoft.

It's these kind of things that encourage people to pirate. I have always paid for games but I really wanna pirate this one now even though I have paid for it and completed most of it.

On the Ubisoft forum about this (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/4811054957/m/6811098728/p/1) the only feedback we've had is about the servers, nothing at all about how much everyone hates the DRM and if it didn't exist the servers wouldn't be an issue. I'm beginning to think that the Junior PR summer student in charge of this whole mess is spending their time standing with their fingers in their ears (or possibly elsewhere in their anatomy) humming very very loudly.

Really so glad I didn't buy this because between the constant internet disconnections I have and THEIR server going down, I'd probably never make it through title screen.

I just heard on a tv station (was on freeview and i can't find what channel it was), that the sales on this particular game were 43% lower than what was originally expected. Take that Ubisoft.

Ubisoft are pwned I see there are already hefty discounts on the game and people are selling for as low as a fiver now and the used stock is very high and it's only been out for 2 weeks.

Serves them right. Even less people will buy new and go for second hand cheap versions just to try it and ubisoft loses even more money than the 500,000 they've already lost from gamers refusing to buy their products. When it hits the million mark they'll really feel it.
