Ubisoft, one of the premier game publishing houses has decided to jump on the intrusive idiocy that is digital rights management.

The basic gist of their plan is to require an Internet connection to not only play their games, but to save game progress and access that saved progress.

Good luck to you if your Internet connection is down or you are in an area (say, an airplane or in the sticks somewhere) where there is no Internet.

When I buy a game, I expect to be able to play it whenever and wherever I please.  Looks like I won’t be buying Ubisoft games once this is implemented, which is a shame because they make some great games.
