Win: Ubisoft's DRM Slightly Less Crappy Than Before

Remember when gamers the world over were raging as Ubisoft announced a new form of DRM that would require all their games to have a constant Internet connection to run? Remember when pirates got around that DRM and plundered the hell out of Assassin’s Creed 2 and Splinter Cell: Conviction anyway?

Apparently Ubisoft’s finally taken that to heart, as folks on the Internet are reporting that the once-restrictive DRM is now no more on those two games. Instead of requiring a constant Internet connection, the games require an Internet connection to validate the copy only when they boot up every time.

This is a nice step in the right direction, but there’s still quite a number of folks out there without a reliable Internet connection that won’t be able to consistently play any of these games.  I guess it’s back to the drawing board, Ubisoft.
