Mea culpa. Last month, in reaction to Ubisoft’s confusingly worded statement about their change of DRM for Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, I launched into a lengthy rant about how it still wasn’t good enough, based on my own misunderstanding. I understood that it would require an online authentication every time it was launched, whereas it appears to be the case that it’s only the one time after it’s first installed. So I think I owe Ubisoft an apology. It’s important to note that Ubisoft have not contacted us regarding that article at all. They are stoic. And it’s also important to note that I’m not saying that I believe that one-time online authentication DRM is acceptable either. I am not stoic. But I do not like having misrepresented the facts, and as such want to make my mistake clear.
