    Nooooo! Not Guitar Hero!

    Well that's what they're reporting. I'm pretty sure the real reason is that someone dropped their keys to the servers ;)

    Always on drm ftw

      I don't think you understand. None of these games employ Always-on DRM. If you had read the article, you would know this is affecting multiplayer components only.

      Always on DRM is what Ubisoft use to do with their PC games, this is just multiplayer servers going down. Not exactly the same thing.... lol

    People still play world at war??
