Ubisoft's approach to DRM is controversial to say the very least, and its policy continues with Driver: San Francisco, which requires a constant internet connection to play. This has bothered many gamers but, speaking to PC Gamer, a Ubisoft rep has claimed that the DRM has been a success.
Apparently Ubisoft has seen a "a clear reduction in piracy of our titles which required a persistent online connection," claimed the rep. "[F] rom that point of view the requirement is a success."
Piracy is clearly an issue in the PC market, but is Ubisoft's DRM the solution? Surely there has to be a third way?
