Just took this screenshot from the Steam store page...speaks for itself, really.
I was counting down the days for AC2's release on the PC but now I doubt I will buy it or any product from Ubisoft for that matter until they removed this ridiculous DRM.
It just so happens that I have an Ubisoft account and a high speed internet connection, but if I wanted to pay $60 for a PC game, I would go buy MW2 instead.
No DRMs on my beautiful BiA series by Ubisoft. :Pimp:

god forbid your internet line hicups for a second, I guess your fucked, kicked out of game and lost saved game.
Or, taking it a step further, if their servers go down.
Also, for people that don't know and want a little more info: Why Ubisoft DRM for Assassin's Creed 2 has outraged gamers / The Christian Science Monitor - CSMonitor.com
Well that fucking sucks.
How much minimum speed counts as a "high speed connection"? Hell, considering that not everyone who is fortunate enough to buy a PC game is not fortunate enough to also have an internet connection, this is just fucking unfair.
Guy to friends, "HEY! I just bought AC2! It's like so awesome and stuff!" Tries to play "O shit. I can't play because of DRM." Friends, "You suck. Should have just bought the PS3/XBOX360 version. And you wasted $60. What a dumbass!"
I was waiting for this game on the pc, but now I will just get a used copy for my 360. The hell with paying 60 bucks for a game I can't even trade or re-sell.
Tell me one more thing. I'm not going to discuss how or ask anyone how but as far as I've heard and know, console games can be pirated as well. So why do they even bother? Did they ever bother looking that up?
Just makes everything worse for those who are genuine but don't have all the required facilities. Besides determined criminals always find in one way or another. How are you supposed to stop another criminal taking the place of one who has gone down?

Didn't those guys also take out content of the game in order to sell it as DLC?
To require a permanent internet connection for a single player game is just silly. Those guys actually encourage people who bought the game to start looking for cracks.
