... or at least if you're Ubisoft and it saves you some buck?

A user on Reddit spotted this:

Is this correct? Doesn't look fake...

Yes, this is interesting.

And certainly wouldn't do Ubisoft's credibility any good if proven to be true.

Birate is not so high i hoped that would be 320kbps but it is 191kbps http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif Only song that is 320kbps is that one additional that is not from pirated source (Apple Chamber)

Ubisoft didn't pirate anything, they own the rights of these files. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

However it's really unprofessional. Is it so hard to just provide the original sound files (e.g. as .flac) or let some Ubisoft employee rip the CD (with a higher bitrate!) himself?

The fact that they own the rights to the files is irrelevant.

They knowingly used files that someone outside the company ilegally copied and distributed.

They can try to sugar coat it how ever they want (if they even try), but the simple fact is, if you use a pirated copy of a digital asset you created (and don't use the original, even when you should still have access to it), you are endorsing the actions of the person who riped the files originally.

Ubisoft made the game and own all the rights, a guy made the soundtrack, why should Ubisoft lose 3 days doing it if it's already done? i prefer to have they fixing the MP instead of making a soundtrack -.-''
