Submission + - Ubisoft to give up always on DRM. (

An anonymous reader writes: Now, before you start celebrating, know that Ubisoft is NOT giving up DRM as a whole, only the "always online" DRM.

“We have listened to feedback, and since June last year our policy for all of PC games is that we only require a one-time online activation when you first install the game, and from then you are free to play the game offline.”

I know for many (especially on this site) this still isn't enough, but it's definitely a step in the right direction.
