        It has it's flaws, and Ubi certain needs to address it's server issues, but the goodness of Siege cannot be denied.

          Yeah it has its flaws, like the fact that you have to use it in order to play good games.

            *shrug*

            I honestly don't share the unified platform woes others seem to have, and don't care about always-online DRM either. If I like a game enough to put in over 600 hours, having to load another launcher is the least of my concerns.

              I went to activate Far Cry 3 so I could play Blood Dragon that someone had gifted me. Was down the entire weekend I tried to do it.

              They can fuck off.

              I don't necessarily mind multiple launchers, like Blizzard's or MMOs etc that are offering a substantive online service for the game. But UPlay and Origin were both created for two reasons:

              1. Publishers are mad they didn't get there before Steam

              2. Publishers want the maximum profit margins for their games

              Nowhere is "offer a digital distribution service that's better than Steam so users will want it" apparent on their product roadmap.

                UPlay and Origin suck but both are from publicly traded companies and that #2 is pretty important to them.
                Ubi at least splits the difference by also selling their games on Steam.

                I'd be really curious to see if EA would actually make more money selling their games on Steam at lower margins, but to a much larger customer base.

                My gut feeling is that it may not matter much for things like Battlefield, but would probably help sales for games like Titanfall, etc.

          I'll deny it if it requires uplay.

      Don't they use Microsoft Azure servers for much of their stuff?
