Games maker Ubisoft drew global ire when it announced that all its new titles, starting with Silent Hunter 5 and Assassin’s Creed 2, would henceforth be crippled with a DRM that would kick you off the game and wipe out your play if your Internet connection dropped for even a moment. From soldiers on forward-fire bases to people who just don’t want to have to be online to play a single-player game, gamers all over the world treated Ubisoft’s announcement as a declaration of war on the rights of game-buyers to enjoy their property in legitimate ways.
Now comes the news that Ubisoft’s DRM was broken less than 24 hours after release, which isn’t such a surprise, really.
After all, these are gamers: Ubisoft set them a challenge. Solving challenges is what gamers do. And the bragging rights are monster.
