Wow, thank goodness they have seen the light. My guess is they're just working on something even more nefarious. If they truly go the way of less invasive/strict DRM I just may go back to buying their games.
Always-on makes perfect sense when the game is played online from the publisher's servers (e.g., World of Warcraft, Everquest, Asheron's Call, Star Trek Online, and so forth). When it's being used for the sole purpose of preventing a customer from playing a game after he has lawfully purchased it and happens to be someplace without a reliable Internet connection, then the right answer is a total boycott of the control-mad publisher's products.
I think Ubisoft ultimately realized their bottom line was vulnerable to a virtual flash mob running away from the cash registers.
Wow, nice. Guess they finally started to feel it. I wonder if it's safe to support them now, or will that make them think it's safe to go back to their old ways......
EDIT: Also, inb4 Ubisoft converts all their games to the Free To Play model.
