Remember the last time Ubisoft came up with the DRM where you had to be connected to the Internet 24/7 to play their PC games? And remember how the entire community boycotted it forcing them to abandon? Well now it’s back with their upcoming Driver game and the kicker over here is that Ubisoft actually considers it a success.
According to PC Gamer a Ubisoft representative today told them that they consider this DRM method a success simply because it has significantly reduced the piracy of Ubisoft’s PC catalogue. This is quite unfortunate for gamers as they have to be connected 24/7 to be able to play the game as well as save their progress. While this isn’t much of an issue for gamers in the West, Indian gamers are prone to all sorts of problems as far as their ISPs are concerned, the most serious one being frequent disconnections. At this rate I doubt anyone from India will actually finish Driver: San Francisco.
