PC Gamer grills Ubisoft on DRM

"It won't p*ss off customers," claims publisher

Ubisoft has told CVG sister mag PC Gamer that it wouldn't have built DRM protection into its PC games "if we thought that it was really going to piss off our customers".

The news comes after Gamer exposed issues with the PC version of Assassin's Creed II, which requires a constant internet connection.

"We know that requiring a permanent online connection is not a happy point for a lot of PC gamers, but it is necessary for the system to work," a spokesperson told the mag last night.

The interview reveals one fear of PC gamers about the system: 'In the case of a server failure their games will be taken offline, and you'll be unable to play them.'
