Ubisoft changes Driver: San Francisco’s DRM policy

Wednesday, 17th August 2011 17:44 GMT By Debabrata Nath

The voice of the internet, it can change things for the better, sometimes.

Following the widespread fan outrage regarding Ubisoft’s “always-on” DRM policy for Driver: San Francisco, the publisher has decided to change it.

According to a RPS report, players will no longer require always-on internet to enjoy the title, however they’ll still need to log in everytime they decide to start the game.

“We’ve heard your feedback regarding the permanent internet connection requirement for Driver and have made the decision to no longer include it, said an Ubisoft representative. “So this means that Driver PC gamers will only need to sign in at game launch, but can subsequently choose to play the game offline.”

Driver: San Francisco is in development for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC and will be releasing on September 27.

    Foot = Shot. Again.

    I guess the interesting thing is how many times Ubisoft will have to run their heads straight into a wall while the value of their company continues to steadily drop, before they realize that they’ve made a humongous mistake, and start getting serious about selling us an honest product.

    They’re all but admitting to a broken system, and yet it’s still there. Why not go all the way, and do the right thing? It’s free money. Money in the bank. Cash money. Profits!

    Good. I like developers that listen. I’ll not be getting this game, but it’s good news for people who are.

    They might as well just remove it, 90% of the people interested in this game will probably just pirate this shit anyway.
