    We all know about these new DRM of Ubisoft for the Assasins Creed, and it faced lots of glitches and technical issues. And you need constant connection even when your playing a single game. Did these new DRM of Ubisoft help the sales of this game?

    It just made the sales poor...
    Ubi got a lot of negative publicity over this DRM and it flaws. Not to mention all the bugs the DRM caused (lost saves etc). Also, a lot of people download games as a demo of the game and if they like it, they buy it. Real pirates, won't buy the game no matter what. They will just play another game until an actual bypass appears. Nor can you make an effective DRM on a ported game, unless you make the game from scratch with the DRM in the core of the game, or utilise the same DRM on every medium the game is ported to

    Thats a point made through personal experience so speak for yourself not everyone else.

    The only glitch/issue I had with it was when the servers went down at the very start. Other than that its been butter...

    A lot of the other issues people were facing were to do with how they had their system set up, or a lack of knowledge on how to fix said issues.

    So, you want people to speculate on ACII sales?

    The only realistic choice anyone can pick is the last one seeing as noone knows what the sales figures are and its pure speculation...

    To be honest when/if the figures are released I hope they surpass expectations and all the DRM haters get a good shock.

    Hopefully after that I won't read the word "Draconian" again for a very long time!

    Even when the sales figures do get out, you have nothing to compare it to. Unless you find a way to know what the sales figures would have been like without the DRM.

    I'd say a little because some gamers doesn't have internet connection and I might stop my internet connection due to virus and hackers.

    I can't even give this enough

    @OP-
    Hello and welcome to the Forums
    Please use the already existing DRM Thread to discuss it. Putting a new Topic in the form of a poll doesn't change the subject matter.
    Thanks
